Reality television and social media star Kim Kardashian West was robbed at gunpoint of millions of euros worth of jewelry while inside her Paris hotel room, her spokesperson and a French judicial source said Monday.

Two masked men dressed as police officers held up the fashion star and businesswoman, leaving her "badly shaken but physically unharmed," her spokesperson told dpa.

Kardashian West was robbed of 9 million euros (10 million dollars) worth of goods, a judicial source told dpa. The initial estimate of the stolen goods includes a ring valued at 4 million euros and a jewelry box valued at 5 million euros, the source said.

Five people disguised as police arrived at the hotel before two entered the apartment where Kardashian West was staying and held her during the robbery, the source added. French media said the incident took place around 3 am (0100 GMT).

A spokesman for the Paris police union told broadcaster BFMTV that Kardashian West had left France to travel back to the US after speaking to police. The television celebrity and her family issued no statements and posted no reactions on social media by Monday afternoon.

Kardashian West's husband, rapper Kanye West, was performing a concert at the Meadows Festival in New York on Sunday night when he learned what happened and abruptly ended the his performance.

"I am sorry, family emergency; I have to stop the show," West told concertgoers.

Kardashian West was in the French capital for Paris Fashion Week along with her mother, Kris Jenner, and sister, Kourtney Kardashian.

The three attended a show by fashion house Givenchy on Sunday night, in which Kardashian West's sister Kendall Jenner was walking as a model. Kardashian West also attended an event held by Maison Siran at a hotel near the Champs-Elysee.

Last week, she was accosted by celebrity prankster Vitalii Sediuk as she entered a Paris restaurant. Sediuk attempted to kiss her backside before being dragged away by security guards.

France and its capital have seen security tightened after a series of terrorist attacks that have left more than 230 people dead in the past 21 months. Paris mayor Anne Hidalgo said in a statement that the heist had nothing to do with the work of police and security forces charged with ensuring safety in public space.

Assuring Kardashian West of her support, Hidalgo said she was "always welcome in Paris.

"I have full faith in the police forces, with regard to this investigation, to quickly identify and apprehend the culprits responsible for these acts," she added.

Hidalgo, a Socialist, also called for a non-partisan response to the theft and pointed out that the tourist sector was already struggling.

She issued the statement after criticism levied by conservative presidential candidate Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet, who suggested that the city's security measures did not go far enough.

Kardashian West and her husband are not strangers to Paris, where they frequently make appearances for fashion week.

Kanye West launched a fashion line, Yeezy, in collaboration with Adidas in 2015 and Kardashian West launched the Kardashian Kollection with her two sisters. The couple also spent a week in Paris shopping before their 2014 wedding.

Kardashian West first gained notoriety when a video of her having sex with then-boyfriend and rapper Ray J was made public in 2007.

The daughter of OJ Simpson defence attorney Robert Kardashian, Kardashian West was friendly with reality TV celebrity Paris Hilton and went on to star in her own reality series, "Keeping Up with the Kardashians."

Listed at number 42 on Forbes ranking of 100 top-earning celebrities, Kardashian West's net worth was estimated to be 51 million dollars from June 2015 to June 2016. Most of her income was generated by her mobile game, "Hollywood," as well as endorsements on photo-sharing site Instagram.

Kardashian West has two children with Kanye, 3-year-old North West and 10-month-old Saint West.
