E! has postponed the production of their hit show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, following the incident in Paris where Kim was robbed at gunpoint by masked gunmen.

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

While the extremely popular show has been suspended, it will still premiere its half season as planned on October 23.

When Variety reporters asked if cameras were rolling during the Paris incident, E! remained tight-lipped and declined to comment.

The suspension comes days after Kardashian was tied up and bound at her hands and feet, locked in a bathroom, and robbed by at least two gunmen. Authorities believe up to five suspects were involved and said they made off with nearly $10 million worth of jewelry.

“Kim Kardashian West was held up at gunpoint inside her Paris hotel room this evening, by two armed masked men dressed as police officers,” a spokesperson for the reality star told The Independent the night of the incident. “She is badly shaken but physically unharmed."
