ORIGINAL STORY: Kanye West was performing at The Meadows Festival in New York just hours ago when he abandoned the stage mid-set due to a “family emergency”.

According to The Fader, Kanye was performing Heartless when somebody relayed news to the rapper from side of stage.

He then told the crowd, “I’m sorry, family emergency, I have to stop the show,” and left the stage.

The Meadows is a new festival organised by the team behind NYC’s Governor’s Ball. They haven’t had much luck with their headliners this weekend. The Weeknd was due to perform on Saturday night but pulled out just days before and Kanye was Sunday night’s headliner.

Yeezy is currently touring around the US on his Saint Pablo tour in support of this year’s The Life Of Pablo.

It’s unknown at this stage what the family emergency is.
