Kanye West holds his own party for Chicago after claiming he wasn't invited to Kim's
Separate parties were reportedly his idea.
Kanye West threw his own birthday party for Chicago as was reportedly "always" the plan, despite publicly accusing estranged wife Kim Kardashian of not inviting him to the party she threw their daughter.
Kim was reportedly shocked to learn Kanye posted on social media that he “wasn’t allowed to know where her party was” as it was his idea to host separate parties for the toddler in the first place.
“I’m just putting this online because I need ya’ll support,” the rapper told social media from his car on the day of the party. “I’ve called Kim, texted the nannies, I got on the phone with Tristan [Thompson], he said he’d ask Khloe [Kardashian]. Won’t nobody give me the address to my daughter’s birthday party right now, and that’s going to imprint in her mind that I wasn’t there for her.”
However, sources told Page Six that Kim has “made every effort to invite and include Kanye for every event” and that he was the one who said they should throw separate celebrations – Kim's at 12pm and his at 4pm.
“He was always having his own party for Chicago. He had it at 4 p.m. at his office downtown [in Los Angeles] that he planned, so it’s so frustrating he crashed Kim’s party and created this narrative that he wasn’t invited,” a source said.
Kanye eventually ended up at the joint party Kim and her sister Kylie Jenner were hosting to celebrate cousins Chicago and Stormi turning 4.
The 44-year-old updated fans that he made it there, thanking Travis Scott and Kylie for getting him in despite plans to host his own later that day.
“That always was the plan, that he would have them at that time. And he took the kids from the noon party to his,” another source added.
Other insiders were confused by his public cry for fear of missing out on his daughter's special moment considering he allegedly “didn’t show up to Chicago’s birthday last year, nor did he show up to Psalm’s last year”.
Kanye previously implied Kim’s security prevented him from entering her home with his kids as her boyfriend, Pete Davidson, was there.
But sources say Kim has not yet introduced the children to Pete, who the rapper name-drops in a new song while threatening to “beat Pete Davidson’s ass”.
They claim Kanye is “upset with Kim” for creating boundaries and wanting more privacy in the course of their divorce.
“It has nothing to do with co-parenting or the kids, but his feelings with not being able to control her any longer,” they said.
Kanye’s sit-down interview with Hollywood Unlocked CEO Jason Lee airs in the US later today, and is expected to be an explosive tell-all on their marriage, the divorce, and his new girlfriend, Uncut Gems actress Julia Fox.
