KIM KARDASHIAN was held at gunpoint in her Paris hotel room yesterday, by two men who were dressed as police, but also wearing masks. Kim is there for Paris Fashion Week.
The men broke into the room, but it’s unclear if they stole anything.
Kim’s rep said, quote, “She is badly shaken but physically unharmed.”
Kanye West was actually onstage at the Meadows Music and Arts Festival in New York City when he heard the news.
He was in the middle of “Heartless” when he stopped cold and told the crowd, quote, “I’m sorry. I have an emergency, I have to stop the show.”
Witnesses say a man ran onstage to tell Kanye what happened . . . and before he realized how serious things were, he tried to ignore him, because he was in the middle of performing.
Before the incident, Kim attended a runway show, and had dinner with her sister KOURTNEY.
It’s not clear where her kids were when break-in happened.
A 22-year-old named Janet Brooks from Clermont, Florida called the cops last week, and said she’d been KIDNAPPED in her parking lot. She told them some guys had forced her into their trunk at gunpoint, then dropped her off at a park.
But when the cops looked at some surveillance video from the parking lot, they saw her walk out on her own.
And that’s when she admitted she made the entire thing up . . . because she was pretty sure another woman was making moves on her boyfriend, and she wanted to test if he TRULY CARED about her.
She was charged with filing a false report.
As for her relationship status . . . well, we don’t know. There’s no word on how her boyfriend reacted to the kidnapping, or the news that it was fake. But if he sticks with her after she showed THIS level of crazy, they just might be meant for each other.

A new study found the average person deals with 84 awkward social situations a year. And the MOST awkward one is having to introduce someone when you can’t remember their name. Here are the top ten . . .
1. Introducing someone when you don’t know their name. 43% of us have done it.
2. Bumping into someone you don’t like.
3. Being interviewed for a new job.
4. Meeting someone who used to date the person you’re currently with.
5. Networking for your job.
6. Meeting the parents for the first time.
7. Going on a first date.
8. Talking to someone you’re attracted to.
9. Meeting up with someone you met online.
10. Greeting a room full of people. It’s not clear if that means walking into a room full of people, or having to meet and exchange names with a bunch of people at once.
A few more that made the top 20 were bumping into an ex . . . meeting your idol or a celebrity . . . dancing with someone . . . a first kiss . . . standing up in a packed train or bus . . . and being told you have something in your teeth.

Our country suffered another horrible mass shooting this weekend. Here’s what we know . . .
A 29-year-old walked into a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida called Pulse around 2:00 A.M. on Sunday, and opened fire with an assault rifle and a semi-automatic Glock pistol. (His name was Omar Mateen . . . but we won’t dignify him with a name.)
He murdered 50 people, and injured at least 53 more. Then there was a three-hour standoff before the police busted in around 5:00 A.M. and killed him. It’s the deadliest mass shooting in American history, and the worst terrorist attack since 9/11.
The shooter is a U.S. citizen who was born in New York, and lived here his whole life. His parents are from Afghanistan. But he called 911 during the attack to pledge his allegiance to ISIS, and also mentioned the Boston bombers.
He’s actually been on the FBI’s watch list for several years, but the FBI cleared him in 2014 and decided he wasn’t a threat.
ISIS took credit for the attack yesterday, but it’s not clear if they ordered it, or they’re just claiming it since the guy was one of their followers.
Even though he was on the FBI’s watch list, the shooter was able to legally buy the assault rifle he used in the attack 12 days ago. Probably because he’d been working as a security guard a couple hours south of Orlando, in Fort Pierce, Florida.
His father told reporters his son may’ve targeted the gay nightclub because he got angry earlier this year when he saw two men kissing in Miami.
He also doesn’t think his son was motivated by radical Islamic beliefs. He said, quote, “This has nothing to do with religion . . . we are in shock like the whole country.”
The shooter married a woman from Uzbekistan in 2009, and she told reporters he had a history with mental illness and steroids . . . and used to BEAT her. So she left him after four months. And SHE says his religion didn’t play a role in the attack either.
As for the attack itself, he started shooting right after last call, and the place was still packed . . . there were over 300 people inside for a ‘Latin’ night during gay pride month.
So it was dark, and some people were confused by the sound of gunshots while loud music was playing.
A lot of witness described a scene sort of like the terrorist attack at the rock concert in Paris back in November.
And just like that attack, there are a lot of stories about people escaping . . . hiding . . . and doing whatever they could to help people who were hurt.
The first to respond was a cop who was on extra duty AT the club. He and two cops nearby exchanged gunfire with the shooter. Then the guy went back inside, and the standoff started. When the police finally busted in, 30 more people escaped.
Thirty nine people were found dead at the club . . . another 11 were taken to hospitals and pronounced dead there. And it all happened just four miles from where that “Voice” contestant CHRISTINA GRIMMIE was shot and killed on Friday.
And just to illustrate what kind of craziness we live in right now, it looks like there could’ve been ANOTHER mass shooting targeting the gay community, on the other side of the country.
The police in Los Angeles caught a 20-year-old from Indiana taking a car full of guns and EXPLOSIVES to the gay pride parade in Hollywood yesterday.
They’re still investigating, but the guy isn’t tied to ISIS, and it wasn’t related to what happened in Orlando.
If you want to help out, there’s a GoFundMe page for the victims and their families . . . GoFundMe.com/PulseVictimsFund. It’s already raised over $1.2 million.
