Video News by NewsLook Leonardo DiCaprio felt like doing something really special for his 39th birthday. How special, exactly? Let’s just say his party could rival a bash thrown by Jay Gatsby himself.
Reality star/entrepreneur Kim Kardashian and hip hop icon Kanye West are engaged! The rapper popped the question in front of friends and family at AT&T Park in San Francisco on her birthday….her 33rd to be exact.
The two are the proud parents of 4 month old North West, the couple have dated almost two years.
Kardashian recently finalized her divorce to Boston Celtic and ex-Brooklyn Net Kris Humphries in June. That first marriage lasted only 72 days. Humphries recently auctioned off Kim’s $2 million diamond engagement ring for a little over $749,000.
Notably, the most famous Kardashian has been married twice, this would mark the first for West.
Kanye, whose on his Yeezus Tour rented out the stadium for the occasion.
How did he pop the question, you ask?
He allegedly told Kimye that he planned to marry her “one day.”
The rapper was backstage with Kim while entertaining a small group of fans and showing them what goes on behind the scenes before his shows, according to HollywoodLife.com, one of the lucky fans said Kanye told the group, “Isn’t my girl the most beautiful woman ever — no, I mean ever? One day she’s going to be my wife.”

Kim then blushed from ear to ear and said, “Kaaaanye. You’re too much,” and gave him a kiss!
“He was sweet, real comforting and outgoing. He had a lot of energy and you could tell he really loves Kim,” the source revealed. “He was showing some of the costumes he would be wearing during the rehearsals and had his arm around Kim the whole time, walking slowly and paying attention to her every step. He was very thorough with her.”
“He didn’t know any of us but that didn’t stop him from sharing that intimate moment with Kim,” the onlooker adds. “You can tell his love for her is genuine and real,” the fan continued.
Wishing these two our very best.

Jesus apparently walks with Kanye West. The rapper kicked off his highly anticipated Yeezus tour on Saturday night with a two-hour-plus show that was as emotionally unsettling as it was awe-inspiring. More than 15,000 fans crowded the locked doors of the KeyArena.
West’s set list consisted mostly of tracks from his chart-topping album Yeezus, including “Black Skinhead” and “Blood on the Leaves,” but he also ressurected a few of his hits like “Stronger” and “Jesus Walks.”
West’s energy level was extraordinary from the very beginning, which was to be expected. The opening number was followed in short order by another two songs off Yeezus, “New Slaves” and “Send It Up.”
Kendrick Lamar was in the house in a big way starting things out with a frantic 45-minute set made up almost exclusively of cuts from his critically acclaimed good kid, m.A.A.d city album.
If you are a fan of West’s …well you know he is a bit extreme. The concert doned flashing lights, flurries of snow, a dozen dancers, a red-eyed demon, a mountain, Jesus Christ and, of course, the incomparable West.

There were several costume changes — first, a blue tank top matched with a gold mask; then, a puffy bomber jacket matched with a black mask. The concert’s narrative followed West on his quest to find his higher power. He eventually donned a white mask while his dancers waltzed down the stage, swinging thuribles, filling the KeyArena with Catholic incense. West went on to rap “I Wonder,” an emotional roll of “Hey Mama” and “Stronger” before an actor dressed as Jesus answered the MC’s call.
“White Jesus, is that you?” Kanye asks with childlike glee, finally taking off his mask before letting out a hilarious “Oh, sh–!”
The religious-themed theatrics led to his 2004 single “Jesus Walks,” which would bring the Northwest crowd closer to the show-closing “Bound 2.” At the end of his two-hour sermon, Kanye and his 12 female disciples bowed to Jesus on the mountain top, while the ‘Ye faithful gave all praises, shouting “Yeezus” until the house lights came on.
The next stop on The Yeezus Tour is in San Jose, California on October 22. A scheduled stop in Vancouver on Sunday, October 20 was delayed to October 31. For a complete list of tour dates, click here.

To believe the Kanye Twitter feud, or not to believe the Kanye Twitter feud? What happens when a comedian starts to lose credibility.
The internet basically exploded when megalomaniac (but borderline musical and business genius) Kanye West began spewing rage-filled Tweets about Jimmy Kimmel after the comedian recreated West’s recent BBC One interview with children.
Media outlets are reposting West’s caps-lock-only rants, ranging from reasonable (albeit hyperbolic) criticism ….
Of course, given the nature of this particular feud (Kanye is still seething), we’re inclined to believe him. But if more and more fans do not, Kimmel’s overall brand could take a hit. Even though comedians have license to toy with their audience, says Nick Nanton, CEO of The Dicks + Nanton Celebrity Branding Agency, ”he’s walking a fine line. Not many people will hang around if they feel like they’re the butt of the joke.”
Kanye West can’t take a joke.
The “Yeezus” rapper launched a Twitter war with Jimmy Kimmel Thursday night, venting over the late-night funnyman poking fun at him for boasting of being the No. 1 rock star on the planet in a BBC interview.
“Jimmy Kimmel is out of line to try and spoof in any way the first piece of honest media in years,” Kanye tweeted in capital letters. “I don’t take it as a joke … You don’t have scum bags hopping over fences trying to take pictures of your daughter. Jimmy Kimmel, put yourself in my shoes.”
The Twitter explosion came a day after a skit on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” featured two bratty kids reenacting his BBC Radio 1 interview.
In the real interview, Kanye, 33, said rappers are the new rock stars “and I’m the biggest of them all.” He also said he’s gotten to a “point that Michael Jackson did not break.”

An up and coming Model Chic working her way up the ladder of Hip Hop Fame & Glory — but can she cash in on infamy?
Canadian model Leyla Ghobadi claims she had an affair with hip hop star Kanye West, even after Kim Kardashian announced that her an West were expecting their first child. The 24-year-old woman told Star magazine that she and the 36-year-old rapper had an affair after meeting at one of his shows in Atlantic City last year. She claims to have been invited backstage after the show and it was on from there.
In the exclusive interview Ghobadi confesses to a year-long affair with West.
True or false, it means the clock is ticking on Ghobadi’s 15 minutes of fame. But at what cost, apparently it really doesn’t matter.
After receiving an enormous amount of backlash after her accusations, which also included that Kanye’s relationship with Kim is strictly for publicity, Leyla responded to questions from inquisitive tweeters. And in one question, she actually apologizes to Kim.
@LeylaGhobadi Leyla, what would you say to kim now if u found yourself in a position to talk to her?
Leyla Ghobadi @LeylaGhobadi 4h
Even if the allegations are true, this apology still doesn’t cut it. Kim, who is nine-months pregnant, she does not deserve this and I am not a Kardashian fan but right is right and wrong is well, its this.
The things folks do for fame and money….Smdh.
