Rapper Kanye West on Sunday night abruptly ended his New York City concert, citing a “family emergency.”
West was onstage at the Meadows Music and Arts Festival in Queens – performing his song “Heartless” -- when a handler pulled him aside, Time reports.
“I’m sorry,” he told the crowd. “I have a family emergency. I have to stop the show.”
Due to an emergency, Kanye West had to end his performance early. Please get home safely.
