Kanye West Proposes to Kim Kardashian on Her 33rd Birthday!


Photo Cred: @EyeOnGlam

They say third time’s a charm! Yesterday G.O.O.D Music rapper and new dad, Kanye West, proposed to his girlfriend of over a year, Kim Kardashian, on her birthday. Third engagment at 33? There is a numerical significance somewhere in there for those who love numerology.

The ever-so-romantic West rented out the AT&T Park in San Francisco and asked Kim to marry him  via a huge jumbotron screen that read “PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!” You gotta love Yeezy’s playful spirit. If all goes to script, this will be Kim’s third marriage, with her first one being to record producer Damon Thomas back in 2000-2004 and the second to NBA player, Kris Humphries. Kim’s divorce to Humphries just recently was approved earlier this year, which makes her more than able to walk down the aisle again soon.

Could this be the Kardashian marriage that lasts forever? We hope so! The news of Kim’s engagement comes days after it has been made public that her mother, Kris Jenner, has filed for divorce from her husband of 20+ years, Bruce Jennfer. Maybe Kanye and Kim’s love will be the inspiration behind a quick rekindle? We shall see. But one thing is for sure, the next season of Keeping Up with the Kardashian will be a must watch!

"New Slaves" rapper Kanye West was welcomed into the Cartier boutique on Rodeo Drive yesterday, where we suspect he looked at gifts for his daughter North West and baby momma Kim Kardashian.

After spending a few moments inside, Kanye later emerged from the store empty-handed.

While out on his shopping excursion, Yeezus received some good news from  Los Angeles County district attorney’s office who said they wouldn’t prosecute him for attacking a photographer at Los Angeles International Airport.

The DA concluded that since the photographer was not seriously, nor his camera damaged, they’d drop the charges.

Meanwhile, Kim managed to grab a few headlines yesterday after she called out television host Katie Couric for sending a baby gift and trashing her during an interview.  Kim instagrammed, "I hate fake media friends" and "May I humbly suggest you not send gifts then talk s**t." Katie later issued a statement to E! News apologizing for the interview saying, 

"I was responding to a reporter’s question, and explaining how I’m intrigued by the public’s fascination with her family," she said. "I didn’t mean to hurt her feelings. The gift is genuine, and I’m happy for Kim and Kanye."

And just because Kanye got boo’ed at this week’s LA Dodgers game, it doesn’t mean the city of LA doesn’t have love for him.  The rapper’s Range Rover was crowded by adoring fans as he drove away from Cartier.


In other Kanye news, he’s set to perform "BLKKK SKKKN HEAD" at the 2013 VMAS on August 25 at 9pmET.

SPOTTED: Kanye West ATTENDS LA Dodgers GAME With Rob Kardashian + FIRST Post-Delivery Pics Of Kanye With Kim…And Baby North West

 photo kanyebbgame.png

Kanye West was spotted out at the LA Dodgers game last night.  See the pic inside and check out the first pics of Kanye and Kim Kardashian with their daughter North West.  


Kanye West was spotted at the LA Dodgers vs. NY Mets game yesterday in LA.  The "New Slaves" rapper attended the game with Rob Kardashian and according to sources, was boo’ed when his face appeared on the JUMBOtron.

But we’re sure Kanye’s ego wasn’t ruffled by a few negative boos as he’s used to being on the receiving end of criticism.  Meanwhile, Yeezus is set to make MTV history when he walks onstage to perform "BLKKK SKKKN HEAD" at the 2013 VMAS on August 25 at 9pmET.

And in other Kanye pics…….

Kanye and Kim Kardashian were spotted out with their daughter North West for the first time yesterday since little Nori was born.  Of course, there’s no face pics of the baby since Kanye really thinks Anna Wintour is going to cave on giving that baby a "debut" cover…or something. Regardless, we can’t post the family outing pics here, but you can check ‘em out here.

In the photoset that has emerged, we see KimYe and North West on their way to an LA Medical facility.  The baby girl is covered by a blanket and being carried by a nurse.  Meanwhile, Kim is wearing a baggy denim shirt (to conceal her post-baby bod) and has a second shirt tied around her waist.  It looks like she’s makeup free….but we’re sure she knew at least one camera would spot her.  And for a change….Kanye is smiling!  He even playfully tugs as the shirt she has on her waist.  He looks…dare we say it…..HAPPY!

Kanye brought his "New Slaves" performance to the El Rey Theater in L.A. last night via a special appearance during the Travis Scott show.  Travis is a Houston rapper who’s on the come up and was named MTV’s "Artist To Watch".

Check out the crowd losing their mind when ‘Ye popped up to perform and him chillin’ backstage:


The new papa has been mostly in hiding with his baby moms Kim K.  Good to see him still hitting the stage every now and then.


Also in L.A. last night, Justin Timberlake shot his scenes for the new "Holy Grail" video.  Jay-Z wasn’t pictured on set since he had a full day with appearing on Bill Maher‘s "Real Time" and premiering his HBO project for "Picasso Baby".

June Ambrose was also spotted on the set working her stylist magic.  Looking forward to seeing how all the visuals shape up…

NOT AGAIN: Kanye West GOES BEZERK And “Allegedly” ATTACKS A Photographer, PARAMEDICS Called

 photo 0719-kanye-west-airport-x17-article-6.jpg

We thought Kanye West  made it clear a few days ago when he said, "Don’t Talk Ever Again", but one photographer didn’t get the memo.  Watch Kanye put them paws on him inside…..

Unfortunately your browser does not support IFrames.


LAPD’s Pacific Division launched a battery investigation earlier today after Kanye West allegedly attacked a photographer at Los Angeles International Airport.

According to the LA Times, the incident was reported around 2 p.m. on Friday.

Police said a scuffle went down after a photographer continued to take pictures of Kanye after Yeezus told him to stop. TMZ reports that after the photographer began fielding Kanye with questions, Kanye "attacked, attempting several punches".

The scuffle was quickly broken up and Kanye jumped into a waiting car before police arrived. Also, paramedics were called to the scene after the paparazzo complained of injuries. However, folks on the scene said they saw no immediate or visible signs of injury.

We smell a lawsuit…….


TMZ reports that Kanye West has been named a felony suspect in airport attack. Police   suspect Kanye committed an attempted robbery when he assaulted a photographer at the airport and tried to jack his camera.

The case has now been transferred to the Robbery Homicide Unit and cops are currently putting a file together.

More to come…..

SETTLING DOWN: Kanye West BUYS HIGH END Furniture For New LOVE NEST With Kim Kardashian, LASHES OUT At Photographer “DON’T TALK EVER AGAIN” (VIDEO)

 photo KanyeWestShopsFurnitureBeverlyHillsiUkkW1CEsZEl.jpg

Kanye West shows signs of settling down as he was spotted shopping for furniture recently.  See Kanye hitting some of LA’s high end furniture shops inside AND cathc his latest rant where he YELLS at the paparazzi for daring to speak to him!

 photo KanyeWestShopsFurnitureBeverlyHillsf5l5WKUj7gwl.jpg

Though he worked on Yeezus during most of Kim Kardashian’s pregnancy,  it looks like "new" daddy Kanye West is ready to settle down as he was spotted shopping for high-end furniture yesterday.  

 photo KanyeWestShopsFurnitureBeverlyHillsFDSqyEIGg8ll.jpg

LA paparazzi caught Kanye ducking in and out of luxury furniture stores as he set out to decorate a new home for him and Kim.  The move is expected to come fairly soon as a source told Radar, 

“Kim and Kanye have finally settled on a temporary mansion for their family to move into. It should be ready for them to move in the next two weeks. It’s over 8,000 square feet and offers complete privacy, which was a big concern of Kanye’s. The security system is being upgraded and Nori’s nursery is being outfitted with surveillance cameras,”

You’ll recall that Kanye told W magazine that architecture and design are his new passions.

 photo KanyeWestShopsFurnitureBeverlyHillsnFyW0PrTfNql.jpg

And we trust that Kanye (and the paparazzi) steered clear of any low-hanging signs as we wouldn’t want another unfortunate accident or a Lamar Odom-styled attack.  


Unfortunately your browser does not support IFrames.


Seems like we spoke too soon as Kanye West was spotted at LAX today (so much for settling down) and he got into a spat with the paparazzi.  Yeezus hopped out of his car and WENT OFF on a rant after a cameraman dared to ask him a question. 

"Don’t talk … don’t talk to me … I don’t wan’t to hear paparazzi talk to me or anybody I know … and tell everybody never talk to anyone that anyone knows … don’t talk to themselves .. DON’T TALK EVER AGAIN."


 And when the cameraman DID NOT follow instructions from the almighty Yeezus (and dared speak), Kanye knocked his camera out of his hand.

Watch the throne….above.

Kanye West Unleashes Nasty Rant & Says “FUK YOU” To “Black Skinhead” Leaker + Kenya Moore Wins, Eviction Judgement THROWN OUT

 photo kanye-west_black-skinhead-video.jpg

After an "unofficial" version of "Black Skinhead" went viral this week, rapper Kanye West went on an emotional Twitter rant, claiming he was heartbroken and issuing a stern "FUK YOU" to the individual who leaked the clip.  Read the rant inside and get the deets on Kenya Moore‘s recent legal victory….


When Kanye West found out that "Black Skinhead" had already gone viral (a full week BEFORE its expected release), he took to Twitter to vent his frustration, claiming he’s heartbroken.

 photo kanerant9321.png


Since we know there are more important things in life to be "heartbroken" over, and we won’t be surprised if the "official" version isn’t much different from what’s already been leaked, somebody could indeed use a chill pill.  Just sayin’.  




And in legal victories……

 photo KenyaMooreBETNetworksHostInauguralBall-KYxzrwK71bx.jpg

Miss "Gone With The Wind Fabulous" herself, Kenya Moore, twirled all the way to victory recently after an Atlanta Magistrate Court Judge tossed out her former landlord’s eviction judgement.  We’re unclear as to how or why, but apparently Kenya proved she did not owe any money rent money like it was claimed.  In a statement sent to TheYBF.com, Kenya said,

“Today’s victory proves that celebrities can fight back and not be victimized by people who wish to lie about them and use their name for the sake of publicity."

The former Miss USA is due back in court on July 18 for her counter claim for illegal eviction, slander, and defamation of character amongst other claims.

Good luck with that girl…

 photo chris-brown-we-3.jpg

Chris Brown donated 1,000 pairs of sneakers to kids in the LA area recently.  See pics of Breezy spending time witht he kiddies he donated to inside and find out about Kanye West’s most recent fashion line collaboration….

 photo chris-brown-we-2.jpg

Chris Brown may have issues with fender benders and ex-girlfriends,  but no one can deny that he loves the kids! Weeks after he released an anti-gang violence song, "They Don’t Know", Chris spent the weekend continuing his message of unity and postivity at Crenshaw High School during the “WE US: Walk Everywhere in Unity’s Shoes”.    

On Saturday, as part of his Unity campaign (which has partnered with the L.A. mayor’s office and several gang reduction organizations), Breezy gave away 1,000 pairs of Reeboks to youth in Compton and Baldwin Village.

  photo chris-brown-we-1.jpg

After the event, he tweeted, “Thank you for allowing me to continue to inspire change in the world. Today was a great step forward!”

We wonder if this will count towards his community service hours?


And on the fashion scene………..

 photo kanye-apc.jpg

The French fashion brand A.P.C. announced on Twitter that they’ve teamed with Kanye West for a capsule collection tweeting, "A.P.C. KANYE CAPSULE COLLECTION JULY 14.”  The collection will include jeans, T-shirts, and hoodies and was has been mentioned in both W Magazine and French Vogue.

Kanye, who reportedly took his new daughter North West out to a family 4th of July bash in Malibu, confirmed the new collection in a tweet to A.P.C.’s founder, “Thank you Jean Touitou for letting me create with you.”

In other clothing lines, Nas has teamed with the Grungy Gentleman to launch HSTRY, a clothing and accessories line that takes classic sportswear items into tougher, edgier territory (according to GQ). Made in the USA, the line debuts in Fall 2013. We love when Nas makes quiet boss moves.  View the slideshow here.

YBF ON THE 2013 BET AWARDS RED CARPET: LaLa Anthony DISHES ON Kim K. & North West + Kenya Moore & Rasheeda Dish On Their Co-Stars (And PLENTY More!)

 photo kmoore_zps499fe669.jpg

TheYBF.com got the latest on the ongoing drama with fab chicks like Kenya Moore (who was rocking Kandi‘s dress from the latest reunion show)…and we got some dish from a few of our fave artists and actresses on their upcoming projects.  Find out what Rasheeda revealed about their relationship inside and what Lala Anthony said about her bff Kim Kardashian and North West.  Also, watch Melanie Fiona sing the praises of Drake inside…


During the 2013 BET Awards, TheYBF.com was live on the red carpet with our L.A. correspondent Kourtney "K-Rich" Richard getting all in everybody’s fashion and their personal business.

While on the red carpet, we spoke with rapper Rasheeda, who’s very pregnant and dealing with some serious relationship drama with her husband and manager Kirk Frost (who was hiding in the cut until we called him out).  Though Kirk has spoken out about their drama, and we’ve watched it play out on "LAHH ATL", Rasheeda talk to us exclusively and gave us an update.  

"We’ll just keeping it 100, I wouldn’t even be here if it wasn’t for the work that we do together as husband and wife.  So we have to work together to make everything work like it needs to.   We are……I’m making him work hard to get it back where it needs to.  He’s really trying….."

Kirk chimed in, "I’m here supporting Rasheeda….just standing on the sideline and let her do her job.  I’m right here".

We also caught up with Lala Anthony who was fresh off the set of Think Like a Man Too. She talked to us about Kim Kardashian and her baby girl North West.

"I have not seen the baby becuase I’ve been in Vegas working and I haven’t had a day off.  But I talk to Kim everyday and she’s doing great."

And Canadian songstress Melanie Fiona stopped by and reflected on writing her hit song "I’ve Been That Girl" with Drake. When asked if they’d ever work together again she said, "I’d love to do a song with Drake.  I loved being able to work with him on the writing behind the scenes thing. Anything he wants to do on wax….I’m there."

Singer Luke James talked to us about going on tour with "The Queen" as he called her, Beyonce, and mentioned that his new single "I.O.U." (Remix) featuring Wale is out. (Check it here.) He’s also starring in Black Nativity with Mary J. Blige and Jennifer Hudson.   

And we got to talk to a few of the Best Man Holiday cast about what to expect from the sequel!
