Kanye's wife, Kim Kardashian, as well as her sisters Kendall Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian are all in Paris, according to their recent Snapchat posts.
Kanye was headlining the Meadows Festival on Sunday, and had gone on stage at 8:45 p.m. He was scheduled to perform until 10 p.m., but ended his set at 9:40 p.m..
Due to an emergency, Kanye West had to end his performance early. Please get home safely.

The set was a makeup of sorts for his scheduled Governors Ball performance, which was canceled due to lightning that was supposed to hit the area, which never actually arrived. The promoters of Meadows Festival, Founders Entertainment, is the promoter behind this inaugural Meadows Festival as well.
Before the set was cut short, 'Ye had hit the stage a little after 8:45 to a full fireworks set before he broke into "Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1" while the big screens either side of the stage dark; when he launched into "Famous" the screens suddenly came to life with Yeezy, bathed in a red glow, rapping the lyrics determinedly while wearing a Tupac shirt. He then went into an abbreviated set of his recent featured verses -- Drake's "Pop Style," ScHoolboy Q's "THat Part," then a run through "Mercy," Chief Keef's "Don't Like" and his own "All Day" while standing on the railings separating him and the crowd -- before coming back to the stage for some of his older hits, like "Can't Tell Me Nothing" and "Power."
An emotional "Blood On the Leaves" followed, before "New Slaves," "Jesus Walks" and "Flashing Lights," a run through several of his albums that had fans singing along. "Wolves" was the last full song he got through, before briefly starting "Heartless" and leaving the stage.
