Kim Kardashian's Met Gala 'date' REVEALED: It was NOT Kanye West!
As if Kim Kardashian's all-black 'Donda'-inspired anonymous Met Gala look was not enough to create a buzz on the internet, Kimye fans got into a frenzy after noticing the reality star showing up on the red carpet at the prestigious event this year with a mystery man, who face was covered in a black mask.
The man accompanying Kardashian on Monday, September 13, at the Gala looked eerily similar to her estranged husband Kanye West. Kardashian donned a full-body attire featuring a black face covering that she paired with a body-hugging T-shirt dress, catsuit, and jersey boots. She posed alongside a person who was similarly dressed in a similar all-black getup with face covering and a black hood. The outfit choice reminded fans of West because the rapper was spotted covered from head to toe at his recently held Donda album listening event which was attended by Kardashian.
Who was the 'Masked' man with Kim Kardashian?
Despite fans getting excited about Kim and 'Kanye' on Met Gala, the masked man with the 'KUWTK' star was not actually her estranged husband. It would have been quite unlikely that Kanye would show up to accompany the mother of his children at the red carpet of the Met Gala this year, seeing that Kardashian filed for divorce back in February. According to E! News, the person standing by the KKW Beauty founder's side was none other than designer Demna Gvasalia, who is the creative director of Balenciaga.
An insider told the outlet that although West was not physically present at the gala, "His presence will be felt on the carpet." "It was him who introduced Kim to Demna and was instrumental in the newly formed relationship between her and Balenciaga," the source explained. "This look on Kim is like a new subculture and fashion statement. No logo, no face, but everyone knows it's her." The insider continued, "Kanye gave her the courage to push creativity and people's imagination through art. It's the ultimate confidence."
Apart from Kim other members of the Kardashian-Jenner clan who also walked the red carpet for the event in New York included her mother Kris Jenner along with her beau Corey Gamble and sister Kendall Jenner.
Kanye West unfollows Kim Kardashian amid divorce
Although many Kimye shippers were hoping for the couple to get back together even as they are headed for divorce, seeing as Kardashian made an appearance at the rapper's Donda event, their relationship is just getting increasingly strained. According to Page Six, West has unfollowed Kardashian on Instagram, after keeping up with her in the six months following their divorce filing.
As of Monday, she is no longer one of the 12 accounts he follows. West, 44, previously unfollowed Kardashian, 40, and her sisters on Twitter in June. The news comes on the heels of West seemingly confessing to being unfaithful during their seven-year-long marriage. The lyrics of his new song 'Hurricane' reads, “Here I go actin’ too rich / Here I go with a new chick / And I know what the truth is / Still playin’ after two kids / It’s a lot to digest when your life always movin'."
An insider told Page Six after the song was released in August that it “is in a way his testimony of everything he did wrong and taking accountability for their marriage breakdown. If you look closer to the lyrics, he is referring to his infidelity during his marriage with Kim, even after two kids."
