A Kanye West concert was shut down in Armenia on Sunday after the rapper jumped into a lake – and was promptly mobbed by fans.

West, 37, who is visiting the country with his wife Kim Kardashian, put on a free concert on Sunday evening on the edge of the capital’s Swan Lake.

Because he’s Kanye West, the rapper decided to take an impromptu dip in the famous lake during his performance of “Good Life.”

The problem? His fans took that as an invitation to join him. West had to be rescued by security guards, who waded into the lake to help him out.

Police were ultimately forced to shut down the concert entirely.

“Crazy night! Kanye wakes me up & says he’s doing a free concert in Yerevan, Armenia! I throw on sweats & we go!” Kardashian Tweeted, adding: “Thousands of people were there! Kanye jumped in swan lake to be closer to the crowd on the other side & so many people jumped in too!”

“Such an exciting crazy night!” she wrote. “So happy I got to rock out with everyone in Armenia on our last night here!!!!”
