Kanye West frequently behaved inappropriately in front of employees at his clothing line Yeezy, playing pornography during meetings and showing off explicit photographs of his then-wife Kim Kardashian, according to a new Rolling Stone report.

The allegations are reported alongside an open letter penned by several “high-ranking former Yeezy employees” titled “The Truth About Yeezy: A Call to Action for Adidas Leadership.” Sent on Tuesday (November 22) and obtained by Rolling Stone, the letter claims that West had a “manipulative and fear-based approach to leading the team” at Yeezy. “He has, in years past,” the letter alleges, “exploded at women in the room with offensive remarks, and would resort to sexually disturbing references when providing design feedback.”

The intimate images of Kardashian are alleged to have been displayed during a job interview and business meeting. One individual claims that West showed him an explicit photo of Kardashian during a job interview in 2018, saying “My wife just sent me this.” That same year, a member of Yeezy’s creative team said that West showed them an explicit video involving Kardashian.

Employees were frequently exposed to West’s pornography habits, the report alleges. One senior employee claimed that West played pornography during meetings on five separate occasions. “He would be in a meeting and he’d be talking to you, and he’d rattle off in his laptop,” the employee said. “And he’s like, ‘I know it’s uncomfortable, but I kind of need this in the background to keep me focused.’” In a documentary shared in October, West can be seen showing pornography to Adidas executives during a meeting.

Adidas did nothing to prevent West’s behavior despite it being common knowledge in the company, the letter claims. “As much as we all would love to solely blame Kanye,” the letter reads, “the undeniable truth is that the Adidas executive team and the board have been huge enablers.” The signators are calling for “steadfast rules for termination of a partnership when problematic behavior arises” as well as a public apology for “Kanye’s terrorizing behavior.”

In a statement obtained by Rolling Stone, Adidas said the company “will not discuss private conversations, details, or events that lead [sic] to our decision to terminate the Adidas Yeezy partnership and decline to comment on any related speculation.”

The Security and Exchanges Commission (SEC) has charged Kim Kardashian with “unlawfully touting crypto security.” In June 2021, Kardashian shared an Instagram post promoting a crypto security asset created by EtheriumMax called “EMAX Tokens” and did not disclose that she was paid $250,000 for the post. Kardashian and the government have agreed to settle the charges – she will pay a $1.26 million fine and co-operate with an ongoing investigation as part of the terms.

Today @SECGov, we charged Kim Kardashian for unlawfully touting a crypto security.

This case is a reminder that, when celebrities / influencers endorse investment opps, including crypto asset securities, it doesn’t mean those investment products are right for all investors.

SEC Chair Gary Gensler said in a statement: “This case is a reminder that, when celebrities or influencers endorse investment opportunities, including crypto asset securities, it doesn’t mean that those investment products are right for all investors. We encourage investors to consider an investment’s potential risks and opportunities in light of their own financial goals”

Gurbir S. Grewal, Director of the SEC’s Division of Enforcement, added: “The federal securities laws are clear that any celebrity or other individual who promotes a crypto asset security must disclose the nature, source, and amount of compensation they received in exchange for the promotion. Investors are entitled to know whether the publicity of a security is unbiased, and Ms. Kardashian failed to disclose this information.”

The settlement does not represent an admission of guilt or a denial of the charges on Kardashian’s part, according to the press release. The $1.26 million figure includes her EtheriumMax payment of $260,000 plus $1 million in penalties and a ban from promoting crypto asset securities for three years.

Kardashian’s lawyer confirmed the settlement in a statement to CNBC and welcomed the resolution. “Kardashian fully cooperated with the SEC from the very beginning and she remains willing to do whatever she can to assist the SEC in this matter. She wanted to get this matter behind her to avoid a protracted dispute. The agreement she reached with the SEC allows her to do that so that she can move forward with her many different business pursuits,” the statement said.

ABC’s Good Morning America teased an interview with Kanye West on Thursday morning’s episode. The clips, which were shared on social media and at Good Morning America‘s website, cover West’s relationship with his ex-wife Kim Kardashian, his feuds with Adidas and Gap, and his future political ambitions. The full interview A Conversation with Ye: Linsey Davis Reporting will air on Thursday, September 22 at 7 p.m. on ABC.

West spent much of 2022 airing out his grievances with Kardashian and her now ex-boyfriend Pete Davidson with social media posts and a music video that attracted public criticism, pleas from Kardashian, and led to being barred from performing at the Grammys. Speaking with Davis, West apologized. “This is the mother of my children,” he said, “and I apologize for any stress that I have caused, even in my frustration, because God calls me to be stronger. I need this person to be less stressed and of the best, sound mind and as calm as possible to be able to raise those children.”

West also spoke about his private school enterprise Donda, named after his mother Dr. Donda West. “We spread the gospel,” he said, “to build practical skills that the kids need in the world.” According to a recent Rolling Stone report, children are taught “world language, visual art, film, choir, and parkour” and parents are forced to sign NDAs.

The interview also touches on West’s ongoing breakup with Adidas and Gap. As West moves toward selling his clothing designs through his e-commerce site Yeezy Supply (a storefront is coming soon to Atlanta), West was reminded that radio host Sway advised him to follow a similar “do it yourself” path in 2013 – this statement led to West’s infamous response “You ain’t got the answers, Sway!” Now, West is willing to admit that Sway was right. “I will go ahead and say that Sway had the answer,” he said.

Kanye West Reportedly Dating Model Irina Shayk Amid Kim Kardashian Divorce

Kanye West is said to be dating model Irina Shayk even as his divorce from Kim Kardashian is ongoing.

News of the dating rumors surfaced on Wednesday that West is secretly courting Shayk, according to a secret news source speaking to DeuxMoi. According to the source, neither Kanye West nor Shayk has confirmed the news, but the source is quoted as saying “after thorough investigation “perhaps some interest [between the two are] there.”

Both Shayk and Kanye are known to each other, with her appearing in one of his 2010 music videos, “Power,” in which she played an angel. Shayk was also spotted wearing a Kanye X Balenciaga shirt he designed as a tribute to DMX, which further added fuel to the rumors.

Fans have also taken note of Kanye’s including Shayk in the lyrics for his song “Christian Denim Dior Flow,” in 2010 as part of a list of women he said he’d like to get to know better. The lyrics said, “I’m wildin’, I’m on a thousan’. I wana see Irina Shayk next to Doutzen.”

She also was among the models that walked the runway for Paris Fashion Week in 2012 for his collection. As fans speculate whether Shayk fits the bill of Kanye wanting to date “an artist or a creative person” in his next relationship as a source speaking about Kanye’s next dating steps has said, neither of the two have hinted at a possible relationship.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West reportedly met in 2012 and got married in 2014. They have four children together and are in the midst of a divorce, with Kim Kardashian filing for primary custody of the children and their home in California.

Kanye West Spotted Wearing Wedding Band Despite Kim Kardashian Divorce

It has been two months since Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from Kanye West, but it seems Yeezy hasn’t entirely moved on. 

Followers of DJ Khaled spotted Kanye West still rocking his wedding band in a post to Khaled’s Instagram on Wednesday. The producer shared that Kanye paid him a visit to check out his forthcoming album, writing, “TRUE STORY: KANYE STOPPED BY MY HOUSE AT 8 AM THE OTHER DAY! I DIDN’T KNOW HE WAS COMING!”. Khaled also shared what Yeezy ordered for breakfast while kicking it at his home, but followers were more interested in the jewelry conspicuously worn on Ye’s left ring finger.

Kanye was also spotted wearing the ring in February, but many fans thought he would have taken the necessary step of removing it by now as he proceeds with his divorce.  According to Page Six, Kim and Kanye split in January and began leading separate lives. 

The announcement wasn’t altogether shocking considering Kanye’s very public bizarre behavior including his 2020 run for president following his controversial support of former President Trump. 

Kim Kardashian and Kanye’s marriage became increasingly hard to comprehend, especially as Kim pursued a law degree and advocated for incarcerated people of color as Trump continued to earn support from white supremacist groups.  Much of Kanye’s erratic behavior was chalked up to his bipolar disorder, a mental illness he and Kim have both talked about publicly.  But ultimately, there is only so much a person can handle in a relationship, and it seems Kim finally hit her breaking point earlier this year.

Page Six reports that sources close to the former couple say that Kim is already being romantically pursued by several of the world’s most rich and famous, and that Kanye has expressed his desire to find an artistic partner that he will have more in common with. 

Meanwhile, DJ Khaled is due to release Khaled Khaled on Friday, and he claims it will be his best work yet. 

Khaled continued his post about Kanye’s visit, saying, “You know when you get this expression that it’s sounding AMAZING! this album GODS HANDS IS ALL OVER IT”.  Kanye may make some questionable life decisions, but he does have an ear for good music.  Let’s hope Khaled’s project lives up to the hype.

Drake Quickly Shuts Down Kim Kardashian Dating Rumors Amid Kanye West Divorce

Drake quickly moved to shut down fresh rumors he’s trying to date Kim Kardashian.

The rumors mill have certainly been hard at work this week, and Canadian rapper Drake and soon-to-be single mom Kim Kardashian-West are caught in the middle of it. Kim K recently announced she was splitting from her husband, rapper Kanye West after 2020’s rollercoaster ride, which saw Ye hitting out against music labels and running for president. It is being alleged that Drake has displayed an interest in dating Kim.

These rumors were quickly shut down by the “In My Feelings” rapper, tagging it as nothing more than fake news. These Drake, Kim rumors may have started based on lyrics from his latest EP, “Scary Hours 2” In the track, fans have hinted that he referenced Kim on “Wants And Needs.” He raps the lyrics, “Yeah, I probably should go link with Yeezy; I need me some Jesus / But soon as I started confessin’ my sins, he wouldn’t believe us.”

This is certainly not the first time that Drake and Kim Kardashian are being rocked with dating rumors. Back in 2018, his track “Can’t Take A Joke” sparked some speculation when he rapped, “Uber X to Hidden Hills to give me somethin’ I can feel.” Kim Kardashian was reportedly living in Hidden Hills around that time that Drizzy was a resident in the swanky California neighborhood. Drake and Kanye have not had the best of relationships in the past, although there is no clear indication why.

In an interview back in 2019, Drake gave his fans and the public his thoughts on Kanye West. “It’s [like] there’s something there that bothers him deeply. Yeah, I can’t fix it for him, so, it just is what it is,” Drizzy said.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West decided to call it quits after nearly seven years of marriage. Kim reportedly filed for divorce in February and has also requested joint legal custody of their four children. Ye is currently giving her the silent treatment and even changed his phone numbers to avoid speaking to her.

Drake Lyrics Mentioning Kanye West On ‘Scary Hours 2’ EP Explain

Drake has fans pining for his and Kanye West reconciliation after he mentions the controversial rapper on his latest release.

Drake SZN is upon us, and social media is buzzing about the little nuggets the rapper left in his mini EP Scary Hours 2. The three-pack ordeal is a precursor to the rapper’s impending album Certified Lover Boy and consists of a solo track “What’s Next” and two collaborations, with the more popular one being “Lemon Pepper Freestyle” with Rick Ross.

However, it’s the Kanye West reference in the Lil Baby-assisted “Wants and Needs” that has fans buzzing. In the track, Drake makes mention of his rival Kanye West in a positive way that has restored any hope of them reuniting – at least for fans.

Drake seems about ready to end his longtime feud with Ye that reached its pinnacle in 2018 when Pusha T exposed the rapper for being a dad – something that Drizzy believes the current G.O.O.D. Music president could have only learned directly from Kanye West. In his new track, “Wants and Needs,” the Toronto rapper expresses a desire to get closer to God.

Since Kanye has become the resident minister in the hip-hop community, it was only fitting that Drizzy calls on him for the cause. Drake raps:

“Yeah, I probably should go link with Yeezy, I need me some Jesus / But soon as I started confessing my sins, he wouldn’t believe us”

Kanye has been on a born-again journey since he gave his life to the Lord, and his Sunday Service movement has depicted just that. Even last year, when he ran for U.S. President, his campaign was primarily based on his religious ideals. Fans are excited about the possibility of faith rekindling Ye and Drizzy, who has seemed for the longest time to care zero about making amends.

Drake also raps about confessing his sins but thinks that they’re so bad that they’re unbelievable.

Is Drake rapping about Kim Kardashian on “Wants and Needs?”

Of course, there is the old Kim Kardashian factor. Kanye West is of the belief that Drizzy and Kim had an affair, and some fans are now drawing references to Drizzy’s lines about Ye on the track. The 6 God has a reputation for leaving mystery subs on his songs aimed at his nemesis, so there is a good chance Kim might be a factor here. Or perhaps he just wanted to ruffle up some feathers regarding Kanye, who is in the middle of a divorce from Kim.

Over on Twitter, one fan says they were anticipating that Drake, who is currently trending, would have called out Kanye West in some way or form on this new project. “I knew Drake would mention Kanye on his new songs, but I’m glad it was in a positive way this time. Would love them to squash the beef.”

Most of Twitterverse is in agreement that it’s about time Drake and Kanye put their differences behind them. They have certainly taken enough shots at each other over the years. What say you?

Ray J Says He And Kanye West Can Be Friends Amid Kim Kardashian Divorce

Amid Kim Kardashian filing for divorce, Ray J says he and Kanye West should be friends.

Over the years, Ray J has been involved in some newsworthy shenanigans causing him to get constant shoutouts in music by hip-hop artists. On a new episode of Between The Lines with Genius, Love & Hip Hop star Ray J goes over some popular songs that reference him. The reality star ended up dissecting lyrics from the likes of City Girls, Eminem, Method Man, Kanye West, and more.

Explaining the references in his own words, Ray J said he appreciates every shoutout in every track whether it’s good or bad. “Even if it is a line that may feel like a diss, it ain’t dissing me. They just talking about the subject at hand. Look I did some crazy sh*t man,” he said. “I did some crazy stuff so motherf***rs remember that sh*t you know, they speak on it.”

Ray J says his namedrop in Eminem’s “Godzilla” is top tier calling it the “highest level” of mentions. “Man, you always wanna get an Eminem mention. I don’t know, that’s like the highest level of it. Somebody get Eminem on the phone. Let me say what’s up. Em, let me pull up, let me soak up some knowledge real quick. Let me come learn some sh*t or give me some goddamn publishing!” said Ray J.

The rapper-turned-reality star also analyzed Kanye’s lyrics in “Highlights” for the first time on Between The Lines. “I bet me and Ray J would be friends if we ain’t love the same b***h / Yeah he might have hit it first, only problem is I’m rich,” Kanye raps. Ray J seemed genuinely surprised and perhaps even mildly pleased after hearing the full lyric for the first time. “That’s what it say in the song? No it don’t!” he said in disbelief. “That was cool, that’s like he having a conversation. I didn’t know it said all of that. I thought it ended after the b-i-t-c-h line.”

He went on to praise Kanye’s works and extend an olive branch to the rapper who married his adult film co-star and former flame Kim Kardashian. “I mean, listen, Watch the Throne is one of the greatest albums of all time, hands down. And the concert, that was some of the craziest sh*t and one of the most simple creative masterpieces I’ve ever experienced,” said Ray J. “Maybe we might need to be friends now! Everybody need to just put all our sh*t behind. It’s 2021, it’s all love over here. Let’s bring the love together.”

Elsewhere in the video, Ray J announced that he has an anniversary album coming called Radiation X and invited the City Girls to guest star after hearing his mention on JT’s remix for “Said Sumn.” In the song, she raps “Who the f**k y’all h*es playin’ wit anyways? / City Girls make em wish like Ray J.” According to Ray J, “We need a City Girls Raycon collaboration. That’s what the f**k we need,” he said. “If City Girls making wish like Ray J then that’s Ray J wish.”

Do you think Ray J’s hope that he and Kanye can establish a friendship and his “wish” for a City Girls collab is viable?

Jeffree Star Breaks Silence On Kanye West Dating Rumors

Jeffree Star is leaning into the rumors that Kanye West cheated on Kim Kardashian with him as he fuels rumors from his Twitter account.

News broke that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were getting divorced after six (6) years of marriage and that the couple has separated and did not spend the holidays together. Kanye is reportedly at the ranch in Wyoming while Kim and the children remain in Los Angeles with the children.

Rumors began on Wednesday morning that Kanye West was allegedly dating transgender model Jeffree Star. As fans pondered whether the rumor was true or false, it doesn’t seem like Star is helping the situation as he milks it for attention.

Star posted to his Instagram account an image of him or herself wearing a pink robe, manicured talons on his fingers, and a multicolored lace wig with a face serving his best make up look. The photo itself is innocent but it was the location and caption that sent fans into a frenzy. Star tagged the location as Casper, Wyoming- the same location that Kanye is at?

To make matters worse, the post caption said, “I’m ready for Sunday Service,” a direct reference to Kanye’s popular event that he started after proclaiming himself to be a Christian.

I’m ready for Sunday Service ? pic.twitter.com/6kCA4kNrfu

— Jeffree Star (@JeffreeStar) January 6, 2021

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West own the Wyoming ranch, which is located in the town of Cody, at the cost of $14 million. The Sunday Service event is known to have been staged at the Wyoming ranch in the past.

But it all seems like a joke that Jeffree is taking in good stride as he posted to his Twitter account, “we are 6 days into the new year and 2021 needs to chill the f**k out”, he said.

Kanye West & Jeffree Star Dating Rumors Explodes Amid Kim Kardashian Divorce

Kanye West alleged affair with Jeffree Star explodes on social media amid reports Kim Kardashian is filing for a divorce.

The news broke yesterday that it looks like power couple Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are headed for divorce. It comes as a sort of a confirmation more than a shock since they’ve been separated over the last few months. While he is staying at his Wyoming ranch, Kim is at her home in Los Angeles. According to reports, Kanye has accepted the divorce, but Kim hasn’t filed the official paperwork as yet.

According to a source who spoke with PEOPLE, “He knows that she’s done. She has had enough, and she told him that she wants some space to figure out her future. He’s OK. He’s sad but OK. He knows the inevitable will happen, and he knows that it’s coming soon.” The couple were married in 2014 and have four children.

While Kanye West takes the time to process everything that is going on, a vicious rumor has begun on Twitter, which insinuated that Kanye is actually in a relationship with beauty influencer Jeffree Star. The unsubstantiated claims began making the rounds yesterday following TikToker’s Ava Louise claims. The rumors are all based on speculation but according to Louise, she was informed of the relationship by a very good source. She captioned the video, “i can’t say WHO cuz he’ll sue me hint hint but it’s part of the reason Kanye’s so religious now it’s his self hatred …. my source is legit I promiss.”

@realavalouiise

i can’t say WHO cuz he’ll sue me hint hint but it’s part of the reason Kanye’s so religious now it’s his self hatred …. my source is legit I promiss

? original sound – Ava Louise

According to her video, “Now that Kim’s finally doing this, I feel like I can spill the tea that I’ve been holding onto for months. This whole divorce comes as no surprise. Kanye’s been hooking up with a very famous beauty guru, male beauty guru, and a lot of people in the scene have known for a while.”

That was enough for Twitter users to begin believing that the influencer was Jeffree Star, and soon #JeffYe was trending. Another rumor also began swirling that Kim is dating CNN’s Van Jones. The situation looks like it may get messy. Here’s how some fans responded.

Kim Kardashian asks for “grace” in statement on Kanye West’s mental health

Kim Kardashian asks for “grace” in statement on Kanye West’s mental health
West’s recent public appearances have led his wife to issue a lengthy statement.

Kim Kardashian West, the wife of rapper Kanye West, has shared a statement on Instagram addressing her husband’s recent public appearances and statements.

ADVERTISEMENT

Concern for West grew as the rapper, who lives with bipolar disorder, began behaving erratically as speculation and confusion grew around his 2020 presidential bid. During a rally in South Carolina, West broke down crying when discussing his family’s history with abortion and made widely condemned remarks diminishing Harriett Tubman’s contribution to anti-slavery.

Read Next:

West’s appearance was followed with a series of now-deleted tweets over several days. The posts accused Kardashian of attempting to commit him against his will, calling his mother-in-law Kris Jenner “Kris Jong-Un,” and accusing Kim Kardashian of infidelity for meeting with Meek Mill in a hotel to discuss prison reform; West claimed that he had been attempting to divorce Kardashian because of this meeting with Meek Mill.

On Wednesday, Kardashian posted a statement on Instagram asking the public for “empathy and compassion” as West struggles with his illness. “We as a society talk about giving grace to the issue of mental health as a whole,” she wrote, “however we should also give grace to the individuals who are living with it in times when they need it the most.”

Read the statement below via Stereogum:

ADVERTISEMENT

As many of you know, Kanye has bi-polar disorder. Anyone who has this or has a loved one in their life who does, knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand. I’ve never spoken publicly about how this has affected us at home because I am very protective of our children and Kanye’s right to privacy when it comes to his health. But today, I feel like I should comment on it because of the stigma and misconceptions about mental health.

Those that understand mental illness or even compulsive behavior know that family is powerless unless the member is a minor. People who are unaware or far removed from this experience can be judgmental and not understand that the individual themselves have to engage in the process of getting help no matter how hard family and friends try.

I understand Kanye is subject to criticism because he is a public figure and his actions at times can cause strong opinions and emotions. He is a brilliant but complicated person who on top of the pressures of a being an artist and a black man, who experienced the painful loss of his mother, and has to deal with the pressure and isolation that is heightened by his bi-polar disorder. Those who are close with Kanye know his heart and understand his words some times do not align with his intentions.

Living with bi-polar disorder does not diminish or invalidate his dreams or creative ideas, no matter how big or unobtainable they may feel to some. That is part of his genius and as we have all witnessed, many of his big dreams have come true.

We as a society talk about giving grace to the issue of mental health as a whole, however we should also give grace to the individuals who are living with it in times when they need it the most. I kindly ask that the media and the public give us the compassion and empathy that is needed to that we can get through this. Thank you for those who have expressed concern for Kanye’s well being and for your understanding.

With Love and Gratitude,

Kim Kardashian West

Kanye and Kim Kardashian Name Daughter Chicago West, Twitter Reacts

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian revealed the name of their daughter Chicago West and Twitter reacting like they should.

First, we have North, then we there was Saint, and now meet Chicago. Kanye is from Chicago so perhaps he is just paying homage to his hometown. Kim Kardashian announced the name of the couple’s new baby girl via her website. The folks on Twitter have a lot to say about their choice of name, similar to when they named their first daughter North West.

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian welcomed their third child on Monday via a surrogate mother. The baby came in weighing in at 7 lbs. 6 oz. and both parents were in the delivery room when she came into the world. Sources say the couple’s two first kids have been calling their sister Chi, as short for Chicago or Chi-Town. The proper pronunciation would be Shy, per a tweet from Kim and Khloe.

Kanye and Kim has a four-year-old daughter name North West and a two-year-old son name Saint West. The couple opted to have a third child via surrogate because Kardashian has a life-threatening condition called placenta accreta which caused her some complications when she was pregnant with her second child in 2015.

Here are some reactions on Twitter.

North, Saint & Chi

Kanye West Is All Smiles After Welcoming Baby Girl

Kanye West was all smiled when paparazzi caught up with him in Calabasas on Wednesday.

Ye and his wife Kim Kardashian welcomed their baby girl on Monday via a surrogate because the reality star has a condition name placenta accreta which caused her some life-threatening complications when she was pregnant with her son Saint West. Kanye revealed that they have yet to find a name for their new bundle of joy and fans are already coughing up a few names.

“Can’t think of a name you know what am saying,” he responded to the paps questions while they suggested Donda which is the name of his late mother. Kanye West and Kim Kardashian already have two kids, a four-year-old name North West, and a two-year-old name Saint West. Sources say they were both in the delivery room when their surrogate mother gave birth to their daughter.

Kanye West has been working on his new album for the last year and his fans are hoping to see the project sometime this year.

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian Welcomes Third Child A Girl

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have welcomed their third child a baby girl through a surrogate.

The couple’s surrogate gave birth to the baby girl on Monday, January 15th, weighing 7 lbs., 6 oz. Kim Kardashian confirmed the birth via her website in a post published yesterday. “Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, beautiful baby girl,” she wrote. “We are incredibly grateful to our surrogate who made our dreams come true with the greatest gift one could give and to our wonderful doctors and nurses for their special care. North and Saint are especially thrilled to welcome their baby sister.”

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are already the proud parents of a baby boy name Saint West and a baby girl name North West. The couple wanted a third child but Kim has a life-threatening condition name placenta accreta, which cause pregnancy complications when she was pregnant with her son Saint. Sources say the entire Kardashian clan are happy for the latest addition to their family.

Kanye and Kim welcomed their first child, North West, in 2013 and a year later the couple got married in a lavish wedding ceremony in Florence, Italy. The couple welcomed their second child in 2015 and last year they hired a surrogate for their third child. The couple recently moved into their mega-mansion in the Hollywood Hills so they have plenty room for their growing family.

How Kim Kardashian Plans on Celebrating Her 37th Birthday

Kim Kardashian is turning 37 years old on Oct. 21, and it looks like the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star is turning another year older and another year wiser.

“Feeling like I found the meaning of life, finally!” she writes on her website.

Kardashian fans know that the family goes all out for birthdays. This summer, Kim and Kourtney Kardashian threw their daughters North West and Penelope Disick a Moana-themed party and Khloe Kardashian‘s boyfriend Tristan Thompson celebrated his sweetheart’s birthday with a surprise party.

So, how is Kim celebrating this year?

Latest On:  [Spoiler] Is Coming to Netflix This November

The A-lister has opted for a “super low-key” celebration with her hubby Kanye West. A source tells E! News there will also be a brunch at Kris Jenner‘s house in Calabasas this weekend. After all, there’s nothing better than spending your birthday with the ones you love.

Last year’s birthday celebration was low-key as well as Kim was still healing from the Paris robbery.

Even though the celebration isn’t the big soiree she’s had in the past, Kim is still enjoying some of the traditional birthday elements. For instance, she plans on eating a special birthday treat.

“Birthday dessert I’m indulging in Khloe’s strawberry cobbler,” she writes. “And always Hansen’s  Cakes for b-days!” 

While many people dread growing another year older, Kim seems excited for her 37th year. 

“Grateful for my new outlook on life!” she writes on her site. She also states that she is “looking forward to so much joy.”

So much joy indeed. Kim has confirmed that she and Kanye are expecting their third child via surrogate.

Sadly, Kim is ending her 36th year on a bit of rough note. E! News can confirm that the Kim and Kanye’s car was burglarized today. Hopefully the couple can put the incident behind them and focus on celebrating Kim’s big day.

Kylie Jenner Pregnant With Travis Scott Baby Couple Expecting A Girl

Kylie Jenner is pregnant with Travis Scott baby and the couple is expecting a baby girl.

There have been rumors that Kylie, 20, is pregnant for months now and it turns out that those chatters are true. TMZ broke the story on Friday that the reality star is expecting her first child with Travis Scott. Sources say both Jenner and Travis Scott have been telling their friends about the pregnancy and even told some folks that they are expecting a girl. Neither of them have confirmed the reports, but photos have surfaced online of the makeup mogul looking pretty knocked up.

The below photo was posted by Kylie Jenner on her SnapChat on Friday. Of course, she could just be trolling the news that she is pregnant or perhaps she really is, time will take care of all the doubts. She is clearly wearing baggy cloth which is only fueling the pregnancy rumors more. Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott have been dating for a few months now following her split with Tyga earlier this year. Paparazzi caught up with King Gold Chain in Los Angeles today and asked him about the pregnancy and he was just tight-lipped. Can’t blame him for that because the moment he says something is the moment he makes tabloid headlines.

Tyga has been dating Kylie Jenner since she was 17 and kept their relationship under wraps. There are even some talks on Twitter that she might be pregnant for Tyga. That would be on a whole new level of scandal. She will likely film her pregnancy for a reality show and make millions off it and you can’t blame her because she is a rating magnet. Some folks on Instagram are even suggesting that Kylie Jenner may be the mysterious surrogate that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are using for their third child.

Travis Scott Got Kylie A Orchestra and Butterfly Chain For Her 20th Birthday

Travis Scott is treating Kylie Jenner like a queen but is he outdoing Tyga thus far.

Tyga got her a Ferrari and a Maybach for her 18th and 19th birthdays respectively, and now Travis Scott got her an orchestra and a butterfly chain for her 20th birthday. Kylie is super rich because just yesterday we learned that her makeup company is worth around $400 million so clearly she can afford to buy herself almost anything she desires.

That didn’t stop Travis Scott from giving her a treat for her 20th birthday bash. The entire Kardashian/Jenner clan also came together to help her celebrate her birthday. They posted several photos and video showing a nude ice sculpture of Kylie, sheet cake, chocolate fondue fountain and a lot of food for the festivities. There was even a photo of Travis Scott hugging Kylie Jenner. Peep the video below of her reaction to the orchestra.

Khloe Kardashian and her boyfriend Triston Thompson were also there, as well as, Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner. Surprisingly, we didn’t see any photos or videos of Kanye West.

Mister Orient – Kurdo songtexte

Songtexte Kurdo – Mister Orient

Ich bin heute den Wolken näher, mein altes Hochhaus ist Gold gefärbt
Damals wollten sie mein Herz in der Mitte brechen
Heute seh’n die Kahbas aus, so wie Kim Kardashian
Tausend Rapper, die mich kopier’n
Doch ich bleib’ ein Unikat – Mister Orient
Sitze barfuß vorne im Brabus
Denn ich achte auf mein’n Status
Ohne Beef, wurde durch mein’ art beliebt
Mein Unternehmen Almaz ein versuri-lyrics.info
Bin der Typ, der nach dem Gesetz der Rache lebt
Ich muss Patte zähl’n, während Rapper Takte zähl’n
Jungs wie ich komm’n aus dem Nahost her
Woll’n im Geld schwimmen, so wie Onkel Dagobert
Zu viel’ deutsche Rapper machen grad auf Tupac
Mein Gold ist aus Emarati, die Euros aus Europa.

Echtes Gold – fass an! (Mister Orient)
Hautfarbe asmar (Mister Orient)
Immer noch kein Modeträger (Mister Orient)
Von H&M zu Kobraleder (Mister Orient)
Rieche nach Vanillemuskat (Mister Orieent)
Die Air Max mit Tigermuster (Mister Orieeent)
Ich wollt’ ein Stück vom Erfolg probier’n
Und wurde über Nacht zu Mister Orieeent.

Sie denken, dass wir in der Heimat auf Kamele reiten
Mann, wir werden in der Heimat von Armee begleitet
In fünfzig schwarzen SUVs mit Panzerglas
In der Guccitasche No-Limit-Mastercard
Ein Ungeziefer, Goldzahn im Unterkiefer
Damals elfter Stock, heute Burj Khalifa
Hartz IV von dem Geld, was ich gestern geliebt hab’
Hab’ ich heute in der Heimat verzehnfacht
Vernetzt mit Maliks, Lächeln wie ein Dieb
Du nennst es Schutzgeld, wir nennen das Backchich
Kein Amerika, sondern oriental dreams
Nie wieder taftish von european police
Kauf’ mir den Freispruch und nenn’ es „falsch beschuldigt“
Deutscher Passport, aber asli Kurdi
Kurdo-Kader-Style, emiraten Hype.

Echtes Gold – fass an! (Mister Orieeent)

You ain’t a friend to me, I sip that Hennessy
Your bitch she love the dick, bet she remember me
Bet I remember her, like I’m a kin to her
My shit was meant for her, Fridays I spend with her
I been with her, all she want is deez
I made her retire haze, now all she want is sneeze
Man all she want is the cheese, but I don’t give a shit
Let her work out, fuck with mines, I’m a murk you out
You ain’t tryna fuck around, get your head split
Toss the ratch in the yard, coky I can get live
Nigga I’ll be dead rich (fuck it) give it all to my son
Spend it all, get ya gun, spin the ball, hit ya one
That ya love and that ya hug and all
Crazy, had a baby, what bitch, presidential with the wavy wrist
My bitch got the Mercedes six, now I’m back in the cut
Tell police stop fucking Tru-Life in his butt

Ya’ll some part time lovers, y’all fuck under the covers
That’s ya mother, ya’ll supposed to be brothers
But y’all lovers, that’s nasty
