HollywoodLife.com has exclusively learned that Kim Kardashian and all of her sisters are planning to attend the VMAs on Aug. 30 to watch Kanye West accept the coveted Video Vanguard award! But guess who won’t be there!
Almost the entire Kardashian/Jenner family is headed to the VMAs and we can’t wait! Kim Kardashian is going to be there to support her hubby Kanye West and Kris Jenner will totally be there with her man, Corey Gamble. We’ve learned that Kylie Jenner will walk the red carpet with Tyga, and Khloe Kardashian will be there too! But will Rob Kardashian, North West and Caitlyn Jenner be there?
“Everyone but Scott, Rob and Caitlyn are expected for Kanye’s performance,” our source tells us. Another insider also adds: “Tyga and Kylie have been so careful about not getting caught kissing in public and that’s all because of Kris, she knows it’s what people want to see and she wants them to hold out, she wants them to save it for her show. Kris is a marketing genius and she knows that’s the money shot, if they go and blow it and get caught kissing at the VMAs that will send her over the edge.”
But we need to point out that it’s the same night as the finale of I Am Cait and Cait will be watching it from home. We can totally understand that they both have important events that night and it makes sense that Caitlyn would want to support her docu-series. VMAs executive producer Jesse Ignjatovic explained why Kanye is received the coveted award! “I think he’s one of the most deserved [artists] we’ve ever had. Everything he does — musically, visually, in terms of fashion, whatever he’s doing — he’s pushing boundaries. I think we all were thrilled to present this award to him and the fact that he’s coming and accepting, he’s so deserving of it.” As for his performance? I’m sure he’s gonna do something special,” Jesse said. “I’m excited to have him in the room,” Ignjatovic said. “I think he’s very happy and honored, and does not take something like this lightly. That’s the great thing about him.”
