As for the rapper's birthday celebrations, a source close to Kanye and Kim tells ET that the couple "had a great time on vacation in Baker's Bay [on the island of Great Guana Cay in the Bahamas] for his birthday."
"They spent six days at a private home and were able to go totally off the map," the source adds. "No work or social media, it's just what their family needed. Kanye brought his friend, Don Crowley, along with his family. The children had a great time. They hung around at the pool most of the day."
The source also tells ET that they stayed at the home of Mike Meldman, the third owner of Casamigos Tequila with Rande Gerber and George Clooney. Kim has stayed at the locale before, as well as sister Kourtney.
