E! Halts Production on ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ Following Paris Robbery

Following Kim Kardashian West’s robbery at gunpoint in Paris, production on “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” has been shut down, Variety has learned.

“Kim’s well-being is our core focus right now. No decision has been made as to when production will resume,” a spokesperson for E! tells Variety.

“Keeping Up With the Kardashians” returns on Oct. 23 with the back half of Season 12 — as of now, that premiere date will not be moved, in light of production temporarily stopping. No word on which season was currently filming, but the E! juggernaut has been renewed for Season 13, as the famous family inked a three-year extension deal with the network in early 2015, taking “KUWTK” to 2018.

When asked if cameras were rolling in Paris around the time of the robbery, E! declined to comment.

The production hiatus comes after Kardashian West was held at gunpoint by masked men in her Paris hotel, on Monday around 3 a.m. The reality star was bound at her hands and feet and locked in a bathroom, while the robbers stole more than $10 million of jewelry and other valuables, including cell phones. Her husband, Kanye West, was alerted of the emergency during his concert, and he abruptly left the stage to tend to his wife and family. The couple is now heading back to their home in L.A., and has kept a low profile since the scary incident.

Kim Kardashian West was held up at gunpoint inside her Paris hotel room this evening, by two armed masked men dressed as police officers. She is badly shaken but physically unharmed,” Kardashian West’s rep told Variety the day of the heist.

Kardashian West, Kourtney Kardashian and their mother, Kris Jenner, were in Paris for Fashion Week. She was at the Balenciaga show the day of the robbery (pictured).

Kardashian West has remained silent on social media, since the robbery. On Wednesday, her sister Kourtney Kardashian posted a passage from her daily prayer book on Twitter seemingly in relation to the robbery, and on Tuesday, Caitlyn Jenner wrote on Instagram, “Love my girl! After hearing the full story, I’m so thankful she’s okay.”
