According to multiple sources, rapper Kanye West took a break from his “Yeezus” tour on Monday, to propose to his girlfriend of over a year, reality star, Kim Kardashian. The proposal took place at San Francisco’s A T & T Park, which he rented out on Kardashian’s 33rd birthday.
West and Kardashian went public with their relationship in early 2012, and are parents to 4-month old daughter, Nori.
This will be the third marriage for Kardashian, who was married to music producer, Damon Thomas, until 2004, and in 2011, infamously married basketball player, Kris Humphries, in a marriage that lasted just 72 days. Humphries failed to obtain an annulment, despite claiming that the marriage was a fraud. Their divorce was finalized earlier this year.
The news of an engagement comes just weeks after Kardashian’s mother, Kris Jenner, and step-father, Bruce Jenner, announced their separation after 22 years of marriage. It also comes after months of sister, Khloe Kardashian Odom and husband, basketball player, Lamar Odom, publicly struggling with their marriage amid Lamar’s rumored problems with drug addiction.
West, who has reportedly refused to show their daughter, Nori, on Keeping up with the Kardashians, has often made mention of his desire for privacy in his life. He recently told Jimmy Kimmel that he cares about “protecting [his] family…protecting [his] girl…protecting [his] baby…” Only time will tell if this need to maintain a private, and protective lifestyle will hold true for their nuptials, or if they will wed in true Kardashian style. Either way, the world will be watching and waiting.
