The 36-year-old rapper jetted off to play a surprise concert in Switzerland on June 12 while Kim Kardashian relaxed in Los Angeles. He and Kim K have always struck a balance between work and family life, but as their baby’s due date rapidly approaches, is it finally time to put the traveling on hold?
Kanye West’s Surprise Concert In Switzerland: His Last Overseas Trip?
Yeezy hit up the European city to play a surprise concert at Art Basel to celebrate a new exhibition hall at the art fair and also to promote his upcoming album, Yeezus, which is set to drop on June 18.
The fair, running from June 13 to 16, is a swanky affair where almost $2 billion worth of art is being shown, according to Page Six, and Kanye’s secret show will definitely be a centerpiece.
Kanye is juggling quite a bit right now — not only is his much-anticipated album hitting stores in less than a week, but his baby is due in less than a month. A source close to the couple told HollywoodLife.com exclusively that “business comes first and Kim knows that and she’s cool with that,” but those priorities will likely shift as the due date inches closer.
Kanye West Faces Cheating Allegations
On top of his baby’s birth and his new album rapidly approaching, Yeezy is now being forced to deal with allegations that he cheated on Kim. On June 12, Star reported that Kanye slept with model Leyla Ghobadi twice in the past year. A rep for Kanye stated that the claim was “totally without merit” and a blatant attempt for publicity. As if he didn’t have enough on his plate!
We’re sure Kanye was more than happy to jet off to Switzerland amidst this damaging claim, but we do hope the Art Basel trip is his last. Just like Kim needs to save her energy for when the baby comes, so does he — if he thinks he’s busy now, just wait until next month!
