Kanye West ends NYC concert early, cites 'family emergency'
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.”
 
West, who was scheduled to perform until 10 p.m., left the stage at around 9:40 p.m.
