Celebrities gift some pretty weird stuff. Well, they have just about everything, so gifting one with a new espresso machine is hardly worth the effort. So what did Kanye West give his new gal pal Kim Kardashian? And did the Keeping up with the Kardashian star dig it?
Kanye West has gobs of cash, so it’s no big thing to drop $34,000 on a gift to say he cares. According to MTV News, Kanye has taken to giving gold skull statues worth about that much to those close to him, including Kim Kardashian.
According to sources, Kanye bought one of these statues for Jay-Z for Father’s Day (wonder what Beyonce thought of it). That gift was a yellow gold skull statue with 1,680 star-cut red topaz gemstones set around the head. So when Blue Ivy gifts Daddy with her handprint set in clay, is that going to earn a spot on the mantel next to the skull?
So lest Kim be sent into a fit jealousy (where’s MY gold skull, Kanye?), he also purchased one for his lady love adorned with white sapphires and allegedly engraved with the letters “KKW” for Kim Kardashian West.
And apparently you can’t just ship a gift like that. It needs to be escorted on a private jet from it’s location to the giftee, avoiding those sticky fingers in airport security.
Kanye’s skull gift idea was inspired by Michael Jackson gifting the same skull statue to Elizabeth Taylor. Now, both those people are six feet under. Kanye and didn’t you see that episode of the “Brady Bunch with the evil statue from Hawaii — those things can be cursed! Beware!
