Kim Kardashian West was robbed of "millions of euros" worth of jewellery by armed robbers.

The 35-year-old beauty was left "badly shaken" after being held at gunpoint by armed robbers at her luxury private residence in Paris, and police have now revealed the extent of what she lost in the incident.

A police spokesperson told CNN: "The loss amounts to several million euros, mostly jewellery. The total amount is still being evaluated."

Kim was locked in the bathroom while two men dressed as police officers took two cell phones and her jewellery.

The French Interior Ministry's spokesperson said no one was hurt during the incident, which took place at around 3am on Monday (03.10.16) and the men did not discharge their weapons.

It is not clear if the 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star's children, three-year-old North and nine-month-old Saint, or any of her other family members, including mother Kris Jenner and sisters Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall Jenner - who are all in France for Paris Fashion Week - were present at the time.

Kim's husband Kanye West was performing in New York at the time but stopped halfway through after he was told what had happened to his wife.

During his sing 'Heartless', he told the crowd: "I'm sorry, I'm sorry. Family emergency, I have to stop the show."

Kanye was the headliner for the Meadows Music & Arts Festival but a festival rep came on stage about 10 minutes after he left and said the set was cancelled as Kanye was no longer on the site.

Meanwhile, Kim's friend Chrissy Teigen and presenters James Corden and Piers Morgan have defended her after the terrifying incident was mocked on social media.

Chrissy wrote: "Fame is interesting. Celebs are supposed to love you guys while also knowing you'd make a meme of our dead bodies to get retweets."

James slammed: "People making jokes about @KimKardashian tonight would do well to remember that she's a mother,a daughter,a wife,a friend.Be nice or shut up"

And Piers posted: "Feel very sorry for @KimKardashian. Must have been a terrifying experience. #Paris #robbery (sic)"
