Kim Kardashian and Kanye West seem to be putting their rocky past aside for the sake of the kids … doing dinner with North and her friends, who wore merch promoting Ye’s new album.
The famous exes pulled up separately Tuesday night at Nobu in Malibu, keeping their outfits in line with their recent style trends … Kim wore a barely-there crop top and long black coat and Kanye covered his face in one of his patented black masks — no surprises there.
We should note … Kim arrived with North and a bunch of her friends in tow — and it appears Kanye showed up separately later, heading in to join them, sans his new wifey Bianca Censori.
We’re told they all hung out inside the restaurant for about an hour and a half together before Ye headed to his car flanked by security … and minutes later, Kim left with North and her pals — with all of the kids wearing matching “Vultures” merch.
North’s clearly the most excited … pulling the shirt up to give photogs a good look at the logo on the front and the album’s title written in script at the top. We gotta say … she’s the spitting image of her father. Also — no word on whether the group went in with these shirts.
This is eye-popping for a couple reasons. One, it’s surprising to see Kim and Kanye get together like this, we don’t see them breaking bread together … even for their children.
More importantly … interesting to see Kim let North wear the ‘Vultures’ stuff, y’know — considering there’s some antisemitic content on the album, from what we’ve heard so far.
Remember … “Vultures” is Kanye’s upcoming collaborative album with Ty Dolla $ign, and the title track’s caught quite a bit of heat for controversial lyrics like, “How I’m antisemitic? I just f***ed a Jewish bitch.”
Needless to say, the song’s not sitting well with Jewish orgs, which have blasted the song.
Like we said, it’s unclear how the t-shirt promo parade came together — it’s possible Kim was blindsided by it at the last minute.
As we reported … North rapped a verse that might appear on her dad’s new album during a listening party last month — so, it makes sense she and her friends would be jazzed about the album’s release and want to wear shirts bumping it.
Notably, and unsurprisingly, Kim did not wear one of the shirts. We’ve spotted her and Kanye at multiple basketball games for Saint over the last month and they’ve had some pretty frosty interactions — if you can even call them that.
Even more reason why this get-together makes us wonder what spurred it all — but for one night, at least, it was kumbaya for Kimye and the fam.
