Kim Kardashian and Kanye West came together for a dinner at Nobu Malibu on Tuesday night.
Kim, the 43-year-old reality TV star, and Kanye, the 46-year-old rapper, had a rare family get-together with their children. The occasion was a dinner party for their 10-year-old daughter, North West, and her school friends.
The friendly former couple were seen arriving separately, and Kanye’s current wife, Bianca Censori, was noticeably absent.
North and her friends were all dressed in matching oversized long-sleeved shirts with “Vultures” printed on them, likely in anticipation of Kanye’s upcoming album of the same name.
A few hours later, Kanye posted a rather provocative photo of his 29-year-old wife, who is an architectural designer, on his Instagram. However, he soon deleted his entire Instagram account, possibly in preparation for the release of his new album.
During their mid-week get-together, Kardashian showcased her fashion sense in a super cropped tube top paired with high-waisted trousers, possibly made of velour or fur.
She complemented her outfit with a long velvet trench coat of the same fabric and patent leather ankle boots to enhance her stature.
Her jet-black hair was styled in loose beach waves, and she chose a monochromatic pink for her makeup.
The founder of SKIMS was spotted exiting with her mobile phone in one hand and a sparkling stiletto clutch from Balenciaga in the other.
North, along with her 11-year-old cousin Penelope Disick and their friends, sported matching Vultures tops and black Yeezy slides.
West arrived in a distinctive outfit that he’s been favoring recently.
He wore a leather bomber jacket paired with waxed jeans and unlaced combat boots.
The Grammy winner, who has won the award 24 times, concealed his face with a hosiery mask, which he kept on as he climbed into his Range Rover.
West was also seen parked in a spot designated for individuals with disabilities.
In the early hours of Wednesday, he cleared his Instagram account, just a short while after posting a daring photo of his wife wearing a see-through Yeezy tank top and an extremely revealing micro thong.
Despite removing all his posts from his Instagram grid, he left two stories up – both featuring a model and his wife wearing a ‘WET’ shirt from his clothing line.
Being one of the early adopters of the social media blackout trend, West might be gearing up for the launch of his forthcoming collaborative album with 41-year-old Ty Dolla $ign.
The pair, forming a duo named ¥$, are set to release their debut studio album, Vultures, next month.
West, in a post that has since been removed, shared a trailer for Vultures and announced that the album will be released in three separate volumes.
The first volume, which has been delayed several times since a live-streamed listening session in Miami last year, is scheduled for release on February 9.
The second volume is anticipated for March 8, and the final volume is set to drop on April 5.
Vultures marks Kanye West’s first album release since he found himself in the midst of several controversies, most notably for his offensive and antisemitic comments.
The album is being released independently.
Following these incidents, the contentious artist issued a 40-minute video apology to the Jewish community, reportedly under the urging of Censori.
He had earlier posted an apology in Hebrew addressing his series of erratic and offensive remarks.
Last month, he performed antisemitic lyrics in Dubai and made comments praising Hitler during a show in Las Vegas.
In November, the Anti-Defamation League labeled Kanye as ‘disgusting, unrepentant, and clearly a misogynist’ for including the lyric ‘How am I antisemitic? I just f***ed a Jewish b****’ in the title track of Vultures.
According to DailyMail.com, close friends of Censori expressed that she was worried for their safety and encouraged him to apologize.
According to an insider, Kanye was persuaded by Bianca to create this video as she was deeply concerned about their safety being compromised.
They have received threats, and her friends have conveyed their worries to her through several text messages.
The source also disclosed that Kanye has been displeased with the worried messages that Censori has been getting from her friends. They have been advising her to ‘leave while she still can’ and ‘return home’.
Just a few days ago, Kanye was in the news for a fiery altercation with a reporter. This incident, which was caught on video and went viral, occurred when the reporter questioned him about whether he imposes any restrictions on his wife’s ‘free will’.
