Diplo Claims Kanye West Predicted He’d Marry Kim Kardashian… and Then Some
We've all heard the story about how Kanye West always knew he'd end up with Kim Kardashian, whom he fondly referred to as "Kim Kardijon" back in the day — but now we're thinking the guy might literally be a prophet.
Producer Diplo, with whom Kanye has worked, recalls an amazing story from six years ago about how the rapper predicted Kim K. would become his wife — and some other things that have eerily come true.
It all goes down in a clip from a new episode of TBS's Storyville, an animated series which recreates celebrities' wild stories and adventures.
In the clip, the EDM star recalls a 2011 incident in which he was at one of Yeezy's parties at New York's Mercer Hotel with a slew of other celebs — including Jay-Z, the Olsen twins (?!!), and Yeezy himself — and was asked to come up with some beats for the rapper's album, Watch the Throne.
According to Diplo, Kimmy eventually showed up with then-husband Kris Humpries — awkward! — and the next day, when Diplo returned to the hotel to check on his track (which he knew was terrible, BTW), Kanye told his musical pal about his plans to make her his wife.
"He says, 'Guys: I'm gonna marry Kim Kardashian, I'm gonna be president one day, I'm gonna be a fashion designer."
This is creepy because, as we know, Kim and Kanye are now husband and wife with two kids and another one on the way via surrogate.
And Kanye's got his own fashion line, Yeezy, which has debuted season after season at New York Fashion Week.
As for the presidential part? The 40-year-old first talked about running for office in 2020 during his acceptance speech at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards.
He hasn't actually been elected yet, but dude's well on his way!
We guess Diplo's story, suffice is to say, is proof the "Power" singer is more than just a musical genius, but an actual genius too who can predict the future.
We always knew he had something special.
Hey, 'Ye, can you please next predict when your sister-in-laws Kylie Jenner and Khloe Kardashian will announce their pregnancies? K thanks.
