Kanye West Won’t Be Going to 2017 Met Gala With Kim Kardashian
Kim Kardashian will be attending the 2017 Met Gala solo this evening (May 1), as Kanye West has opted out of going to the lavish event in New York City. According to reports, the Life of Pablo rapper has decided to skip out on the gala in order to stay home in Los Angeles with the power couple's children, North and Saint West.
While the news might come as an alarm to both of the figure's fans, E! News claims a source says there are no issues in the duo's marriage, and that Kanye was originally set on going with his wife, as he did last year. "Kanye will not be attending the Met Gala and will be staying in L.A. with their kids. He and Kim are doing fine. He has been taking time off and is totally supportive of Kim attending," the source revealed.
Another source also made sure to shoot down any rumors of this being a bad sign in their marriage. "He was planning on attending and recently decided he did not want to go. He and Kim are fine. He will be in Los Angeles," they apparently said.
The news follows in the footsteps of the super producer having received treatment following his reported hospitalization in late 2016. Yeezy was treated for sleep deprivation and placed on a psychiatric hold after he reportedly suffered from a public meltdown, which fans witnessed during some of his Saint Pablo Tour dates before the rest were cancelled. Since then, Kanye has barely made many public appearances, as he has been focusing on his music and family privately.
Kim and other attendees tonight will be following the Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons theme as far as ensembles. We'll keep you updated on some of the highlights of the evening.
