New reports claim that Kanye West has pulled out of the MTV Video Music Awards in the last moment because of Kim Kardashian.
Kanye West, 35, cancelled his appearance after deciding he didn’t want to attend tonight’s ceremony in Los Angeles without his girlfriend Kim Kardashian by his side.
Kim Kardashian, 31, had a prior engagement at Fashion’s Night Out in New York at NY Fashion Week, where she will be promoting her True Reflection perfume at Lord & Taylor.
A source told Daily Mail: “Kim’s in New York for her fragrance launch and Kanye didn’t want to go to the VMAs if she couldn’t be there.”
Kanye West’s song Mercy featuring Pusha T, Big Sean & 2 Chainz is up for Best Hip-Hop Video and Best Editing. He was not scheduled to perform.
The rapper famously made headlines at the Video Music Awards in 2009 when he interrupted Taylor Swift’s speech, after she won the award for Best Female Video, to insist Beyonce Knowles should have won.
Earlier this week, this year’s host Kevin Hart threatened to put a seat-belt on Kanye West so he didn’t storm the stage again.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have been almost inseparable since they began dating six months and on The View yesterday she described him as her “perfect match”.
The reality star also revealed she’s eager to start a family, saying she “definitely” sees children in her future.
