Kim Kardashian is already giving Kanye West a pretty amazing birthday present, as the couple announced last week that they were expecting their second child. But the media superstar is also throwing down the big bucks so her husband can celebrate his 38th birthday in style, renting out the Staples Center for Yeezy’s big day.
An insider told E! that Kardashian dropped $110,000 to rent out the L.A. arena that the Lakers, Clippers, and Kings call home and organized a star-studded basketball game featuring Houston Rockets guard James Harden and rapper 2 Chainz as celebrity coaches and John Legend singing the national anthem.
Justin Bieber, Pusha T, Tyga, and all of Kanye's friends were reportedly on hand to play ball with current NBA stars Russell Westbrook and John Wall, while Kobe Bryant, Magic Johnson, Carmelo Anthony, Shaquille O'Neal and Scotty Pippen made videos for the rapper that played on the Jumbotron.
Members of the Kardashian clan, including Kim's sisters Khloe Kardashian and Kylie Jenner, were present for Yeezy’s big day, posting pics of the delighted rapper on Instagram.
"Kim rented out staples bitch!!!" Khloe captioned an Instagram shot of Kanye and friends. "Him and his boys are going to ball!!!! Happy birthday Yeezy!!!!"
The reality star also celebrated her husband’s birthday on Instagram, with some sweet pictures and messages.
"Happy Birthday to my best friend in the entire world!" Kim wrote alongside a picture of the couple. "You are the most amazing husband & dad! You inspire me every single day! You make all of your dreams reality & it's fascinating to be by your side & watching it all happen! You have a heart of gold! Have the best birthday ever! #SWISH."
