NBCUniversal-owned cable net E! Entertainment has halted production on reality hit Keeping Up with the Kardashians following Kim Kardashian West‘s robbery at gunpoint in Paris.

A spokesperson for the network told realscreen that “Kim’s well-being is our core focus right now. No decision has been made as to when we will resume production.”

Kardashian West was bound in a bathroom and robbed of jewelry worth nearly US$9 million (€8 million) in the early morning hours of Oct. 3, French authorities said. Along with the jewels, thieves made off with cellphones and a wallet containing credit cards.

A spokesperson for the investigative unit of the Paris police told the New York Times that the men who stormed the reality star’s residence were part of a group of about five people.

The men had allegedly targeted Kardashian West, forcing the concierge to tell them where the socialite was staying and tying his hands.

The investigation into the Parisian heist is ongoing.
