Kanye West celebrated turning 36 on Saturday night, June 8, in New York City. And he partied in characteristically-grand style. But baby mama Kim Kardashian was conspicuously absent at her boyfriend's bash. "But why, Wetpaint, why?" you may be asking.
Uh, have you seen homegirl lately? She's mega-pregnant and therefore grounded. No, we don't mean that mom Kris banished her to her room — we mean that her doctors have advised her not to fly, as is typical with expectant mothers nearing their due dates.
So why was Kanye West partying in the Big Apple instead of tearing it up in LA? Simply because he had to be in NYC for his headlining gig at the city's Governors Ball, as he was scheduled to close out the annual music festival on Sunday night at 9:30 pm ET. (Guess he missed that Game of Thrones finale.)
Other notable acts at the three-day event included Guns 'n Roses, Kings of Leon, the xx, Grizzly Bear, The Lumineers, Nas, Kendrick Lamar, and The Avett Brothers. Kim practically had to let Kanye join a lineup of that prestige!
But Yeezy's birthday bash was almost equally star-studded. In addition to Jay-Z and Nas (pictured with 'Ye above), Us reports that party guests included Beyonce, Scott Disick, and Jonathan Cheban. (By the way, in case you're wondering about Jay-Z's awesome "Hello Brooklyn" sweatshirt, it's from Sportiqe.)
