Kanye West

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West welcomed their third child via surrogate earlier this week and their famous friends, Beyoncé and Jaz Z, have already extended their congratulations in the form of a very generous gift.

According to The Sun Online, the superstar couple gifted the newborn a $15,000 one-of-a-kind Lorraine Schwartz diamond incrusted bracelet.

The enormous act of generosity would suggest that their infamous feud has come to an end, with a source confirming the couples are “famila” once again.

The reconciliation comes after Kanye cancelled 21 dates of his 2016 Saint Pablo tour and launched a verbal attack and slated Beyoncé and Jay-Z while on stage in Sacramento.

“Kanye is over the moon as he has always considered Jay Z his ‘big brother,’ and Beyonce has always been one of his closest friends,” a source told The Sun.

“It’s only a matter of time before the play dates begin.”

Kim and Kanye are said to be delighted at the arrival of their healthy and beautiful baby girl.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star reveal the news on her app on Tuesday writing: “She’s here! We’re so in love.”

“Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, beautiful baby girl.”

“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.”


A source came forward last week to tell the world that Kim and Kanye are expecting baby number three.

A source close to the couple told People that the couple will be extending their family via surrogate. 

They told the mag that the surrogate is pregnant and expecting to deliver a new member of the Kardashian-West clan in 2018.

Of course Kim and Kanye have seen the rumours and reports, and while they have not officially released a statement regarding the issue, Kim did comment on the news at New York Fashion Week

'I've definitely seen a lot of things, we've never confirmed anything,' she told E! News last night.

'So, I think when we're ready to talk about it we will, and I think it's super invasive when people are just… So many details out there, and like I've never heard this, I've never heard this.'

'Like whatever. We have not confirmed it, and that's that. I'll let you know when we're ready.'

So that is neaither a denial or a confirmation.

Perhaps the pair are biding their time to make an official announcement.



Last month, US weekly broke the news that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West had hired a surrogate to carry their third child, and assuming the reports are true, the couple will likely welcome baby boy or girl in early 2018.

A source recently revealed to the magazine that a San Diego mother in her late 20's, chosen by the couple after she was referred by an agency, is now three months pregnant.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star and rapper wed in 2014 and are already parents to two children under five-years-old – North, four, and Saint, 19 months.

Kim has never been shy about expressing her desire to have a large family. Speaking on the Ellen Show back in 2014 she said: "I have so many siblings and I love it, they're my best friends and I would love that for my kids.” 

However, the reality star was left devastated when she was told another pregnancy could pose serious risks to her health.

She suffers from placenta accreta, a condition where the placenta grows too deeply into the womb during pregnancy.

However, determined not to let her condition stop her from having more children, Kim and Kanye agreed to pay a surrogate $45,000 in 10 monthly instalments of $4,500, according to TMZ.

Should the surrogate become pregnant with multiple children, the couple will pay a additional $5,000 per child – all on top of the huge $68,850 deposit given to the agency.


Long before his wedding to Kim Kardashian and the arrival of their two children, Kanye West was in a long-term relationship with Amber Rose.

And following the demise of that union in 2010, Kanye chose to degrade his former girlfriend through song lyrics in a move which Amber today admits left her feeling suicidal.

In the same year that the pair parted ways, Kanye released two tracks, Blame Game and Hell of Life which detailed his time with the model and businesswoman.

However, given Amber's relatively low profile when compared to Kanye's, she reveals that his decision to slam her in public had a far-reaching effect.

"At that point, I have no voice at all. I have a couple followers on Twitter, maybe, at that point. That’s an extreme form of bullying as well," she told Complex Magazine's Everyday Struggle.

"To have such a huge voice to put out an album to say whatever the f*ck you want. It’s a great part of history and hip-hop, and I’m happy to be a part of it, but during that time, it was not a great time for me. "

"I’m famous and I’m broke, I don’t have any money, we weren’t married, he didn’t owe me sh*t, and I had to figure out what I was gonna do with the fame and with my life at the time."

Reflecting on the time that followed their split, Amber, who admitted she was utterly heartbroken by the break-up, continued: "If I was going to kill myself, I would have done it during those times."

Amber went on to admit that Kanye's decision to mock Wiz Khalifa, the father of her son Sebastian, in recent years left her reeling, saying: "You don't say nothing about my baby."

"I was quiet for so long. I could have got a reality show just off the fact that I was his girlfriend," she argued.

Refusing to cash in on a relationship which caused her such heartache, Amber insisted: "I could have wrote a book just off the fact that I was his girlfriend. I said, 'You know what? I'm a real a** b***h'.


If there's one thing Graham Norton is renowned for, it's his ability to get the best out of his guests.

And if his recent interview with Jamie Foxx is anything to go by, it still works an absolute charm.

While appearing alongside Dame Judy Dench, Kristen Wiig and Steve Carell, Jamie Fox was encouraged to share his memory of his first encounter with Kanye West.

In front of a rapt audience, Jamie went the whole nine yards… despite the fact the actor has had to share it countless times before.

And from admitting he initially hadn't a notion who Kanye was to perfectly imitating the rapper's voice, Jamie's story of his dud review of Slow Jamz was perfect 'Big Red Chair' fodder.

We'll let Jamie take it from here…



US reports have claimed that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have hired a surrogate to carry their third child.

Kim suffered a number of complications during her two previous pregnancies and was told by doctors that it was too risky for her to carry another child.

Citing unidentified sources, People Magazine and E! News reported that the couple has chosen their surrogate, while TMZ claimed the couple had agreed to pay the woman more that $113,000 to carry their child.

“Kim and Kanye will use a surrogate to carry their third baby. They are both very excited to give their kids a sibling,” a source told People.

The rumours have been fuelled by a recent episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians in which Kim spoke about the option of surrogacy:

"I think I always knew that surrogacy was an option, but I didn't think it was that realistic of an option, and now I feel like that's my reality." 

The news comes after a difficult year for the couple. Last October Kim was the victim of a robbery in Paris and Kanye was forced to cancel his December tour after he was hospitalised for apparent mental health issues.

Since then, the couple, who are already parents to North (age 4) and Saint (age 1), have taken a much more modest approach to social media, with just the occasional post about family life.

The reports did not reveal whether the supposed surrogate was already pregnant.  



Kim Kardashian took the opportunity to enjoy some downtime with family this Easter, and posted a series of snaps to Instagram to share the sweet family moments.

Kim, who last year was the victim of a traumatic robbery in Paris, has been focusing on her family since the event. 

The reality TV star, along with husband Kanye West and a number of celeb friends including Chrissy Teigen and John Legend, enjoyed an Easter party at the Kardashian-Wests'. 

Kimye posed with their three-year-old daughter North and one-year-old son Saint, in a snap that has garnered 4.2 million likes.

Kim captioned the image “Easter 2017."

Kim went all out for the family event, donning a gold silk slip dress and strappy high heels.

She also off her new sleek lob hair cut, while the kids opted for a series of princess costumes

However, it was Kanye who went for the most eye-catching ensemble. 

The rapper decided to dress up as the Easter bunny, much to the delight of the kids at the party. 

It looks like the family truly marked the Easter occasion in style. 

Oh, and while we have you; don't forget to have your say in the inaugural SHEmazing Awards this May! It's time to vote, and you can do it right here!


Young Kylie Jenner is on her way to becoming a makeup mogul, but it seems as though her brother-in-law wants to get in on the action.

That's right ladies, Kanye West is in the process of creating a beauty collection, which will be named DONDA Cosmetics, after his late mother.

Donda West passed away back in 2007, following complications during a surgical procedure. 

According to TMZ, Kanye has filed legal docs declaring his intention to produce DONDA brand makeup, perfumes, lotions and other cosmetics. 

While the world is probably flailing around with excitement about this interesting news, it actually hasn't come as a huge surprise.

Kanye has been pretty clear about his intentions to make DONDA a full lifestyle brand, complete with "holograms."

Of course, we all know that Kanye's sister-in-law Kylie Jenner has a super-successful makeup brand, so they're set to be direct competitors. 

Will it be awkward? (yes…)


Digging deep into the psyche of Kanye West would definitely be an interesting experience.

From his thoughts on art and politics and his cryptic Twitter presence to that massive ego, love him or hate him, Kanye is a pretty fascinating creature. 

Clearly Washington University agrees, as they have created a course called "Politics of Kanye West: Black Genius and Sonic Aesthetics."

Not that Kanye needs anyone else calling him a genius, but professor Jefffrey McCune, who founded the course, hopes to look at the rappers impact on society through the 14-week course. 

The course will also use Kanye's hip hop influence as a vehicle to explore other areas of society like sexuality and culture.

And yes, there will be a Taylor Swift module.

“I knew my students had connections to Kanye,” professor McCune told Time

“They’re always referencing his music and performances and videos and fashion." 

"What better time than now to take seriously Kanye West as a cultural icon? I’m always interested in how he’s pushing whatever boundaries.”

While there is no disputing that Yeezus is seen by many as a cultural icon, what can one do with a degree in Kanye West though? 


Does anyone remember when Kris Jenner bought her whole family scooters so they could all have a scooter day back in 2013?

Yeah, no one in the Kardashian clan seemed remotely impressed by them, but now Kris's son-in-law Kanye has splashed 20 grand on scooters – and honestly, they're SO weird-looking.

According to TMZ, Yeesuz bought 12 URB-Es which are foldable, motorised scooters, that can travel up to 25k/h… oh, and they're €1630 each – without all the fancy bits and bobs.

Kanye decked them out all in black carbon and accessorised them with leather handle straps, a mobile phone mount and the scooters can ever charge your phone or tablet.

Nice Christmas present 'Ye… but will anyone actually use them?



According to reports emerging Stateside, a number of staff members at the UCLA Medical Centre in Los Angeles have been fired after attempting to access data on Kanye West.

The rapper, who was admitted to hospital for sleep deprivation and exhaustion last month, is at the centre of another media storm this week after it was revealed that UCLA staff members had been dismissed for breaching protocol.

According to TMZ, staff at the well-known treatment centre became curious after the star's admission and made an attempt to access the rapper's records.

Commenting on the matter, a source told TMZ: "Kanye’s West stay at UCLA Med Center had some staffers hunting for medical info, according to multiple people at the facility."

"A slew of people couldn’t resist attempting to look at his info in the computer," the source added.

While reports are at this stage are conflicting, it has been suggested that up to a dozen staff members breached protocol during Kanye's nine-day hospital stay.



A staunch Hillary Clinton supporter, John Legend was understandably unimpressed by Kanye West's decision to meet with President-Elect Donald Trump in recent days.

The unprecedented meeting, which made headlines around the world, didn't sit easy with the All Of Me singer who questioned both parties' motivation.

Speaking to French media outlet Clique, John feared his long-time friend and colleague had been used by the Trump camp, saying: "I don't think it's impossible to talk to him about issues, but I won't be used as a publicity stunt."

"I think Kanye was a publicity stunt," he said when asked about the meeting which has apparently accelerated Kanye's future presidential bid.

While John was reluctant to discuss Kanye's recent hospitalisation out of respect for the father-of-two, he didn't adopt the same approach when it came to Kanye's political stance.

"I'm pretty disappointed with Kanye that he says he would have voted for Trump. I think Trump has been corrosive, his message has been corrosive to the country."

"I think the things he has promised to do have been very concerning for a lot of people, and for Kanye to support that message is very disappointing." John added.

Fair enough.
