Bruce Jenner on Kanye West; Kim Kardashian having a baby girl
Bruce Jenner is making some out-of-context comments about stepdaughter Kim Kardashian’s beau, Kanye West.
The rapper hasn’t been around much, the Olympic gold medalist and Kardashian patriarch, 63, told Extra last Friday.
“Actually, I have only met him once,” he added, laughing. “He’s never … he’s not around. He was in Paris the whole time writing, and he just hasn’t been around.”
It’s true, West has spent quite a bit of time in the City of Light prepping his upcoming album. His girlfriend, 32, has visited him during her pregnancy and he’s popped back to the U.S. to spend time with his lady love.
And Brody Jenner, 29, Kardashian’s stepbro of “Laguna Beach” fame, hasn’t had all that much Kanye time either.
“I’ve never met him,” he said, but modified the statement by adding, “Kim says great things about him. And so does the entire family.”
This isn’t the first time “Absent Kanye” reports have circulated. The singer, 35, wasn’t around to learn the baby’s gender either, an announcement that confirmed rumors that Kimye was expecting a baby girl and took place on E!'s “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” Season 8 premiere on Sunday.
But that isn’t what it looks like, Kim’s younger sister Khloe Kardashian told the media. He’d been there for several earlier appointments to learn the gender, but the baby was sitting cross-legged and wasn’t revealing if it was a boy or a girl. A later appointment, which was caught on camera for the family’s reality TV series, didn’t include West because he “was in London or Paris,” Khloe said. “He had a concert.”
“I’m so excited we’re having a girl,” Kim Kardashian said on the show after learning the gender. The baby girl is reportedly due in June.
“Who doesn’t want a girl? They are the best and I know that’s really what Kanye has always wanted. He wanted a little girl.”
The family celebrated Kardashian’s baby shower on Sunday too, with West reportedly making an appearance toward the end of the festivities.
“Like it’s weird for him to be the only guy,” Khloe Kardashian said on “On Air With Ryan Seacrest” last week. But her husband, Lamar Odom, and Scott Disick, sister Kourtney Kardashian’s boyfriend, were expected to bring him to the party, which is said to have taken a garden goddess theme.
“WOW an amazing baby shower! So much luv there Thank u @KrisJenner @KourtneyKardash @KhloeKardashian Shelli & Allison Azoff 4 the magical day,” Kim Kardashian tweeted, adding, “Truly such a special day. I honestly feel so blessed and filled with so much love!”
Love and a huge family? We’re pretty sure they’ll be around to fill in any paternal gaps.
