SWISH! Kim Kardashian rented out Staples Center for Kanye West’s 38th birthday, and the whole Kardashian clan came along for Yeezy’s epic celebration. Find out what other stars were there!
Kim Kardashian, 34, just became the queen of birthday parties. To show her undying love for her husband Kanye West on his 38th birthday on June 8, KiKi rented out the entire Staples Center belonging to the Los Angeles Lakers, and made it a birthday bash to remember complete with close friends, family and a star-studded basketball game!
Team West for the win! Or Team East? Kim rallied up an intense basketball game of East versus West, with Kanye’s team consisting of NBA stars Russell Westbrook and John Wall. Other celeb pals who participated in the game included Justin Bieber, Tyga, Pusha T., and 2 Chainz! To kick off the basketball game John Legend, 36, sang the National Anthem, while he later sang the “All Day” rapper a soulful version of “Happy Birthday.” (Video below!)
Meanwhile, Khloe Kardashian, 30, Kris Jenner, 59, Kylie Jenner, 17, and Chrissy Teigen, 29, sat court side at the game, which Kylie captured on video while Kim cheers on her hubby. Khloe posted a pic to commemorate the event, showing Kanye holding a basketball wearing a “West” jersey while standing next to his friends, all donning similar black and white West jerseys with different numbers. And yes, that’s a smile from Yeezy! “Kim rented out staples b—h!!! Him and his boys are going to ball!!!! Happy birthday Yeezy!!!!” Khloe wrote on Instagram.
Get this — Kim also hired real NBA referees and a few Laker girls to cheer on Kanye, while stars Kobe Bryant, Magic Johsnon, Shaquille O’Neal, and Scottie Pippen made videos which appeared on the jumbotron, according to TMZ. Seriously, talk about an epic birthday bash!
Kim started Kanye’s birthday celebration early when she tweeted her love for her hubby on the morning of his birthday while they were together having a super casual morning just them two. “Not sure why Kanye & I are up so early but we’re eating cereal & I’m showing him all of your sweet birthday messages!” So cute.
She went on to further gush about Kanye saying, “You make all of your dreams reality & it’s fascinating to be by your side & watching it all happen! You have a heart of gold! @kanyewest.” Then, she wished Kanye another “happy birthday” because, duh. “Have the best birthday ever! #SWISH @kanyewest.
It’s official: Kim is the best wife ever.
