The rapper, 44, hosted an event to mark the release of his latest album at Soldier Field in Chicago on Thursday (Aug. 26, 2021).
But Kanye really made a statement by bringing on his ex Kim Kardashian, who walked on stage in a wedding dress.
Kardashian walked outside a mock-up of Kanye’s childhood home on stage. She appeared during the final song of the night, “No Child Left Behind,” wearing a Balenciaga Couture dress.
Just minutes before Kim came onstage, Kanye lit himself on fire while walking around the stage, which was made to look like his childhood home.
And yes, if you were wondering, Kanye and Kim’s kids were in attendance, so they will most likely all be needing therapy for witnessing their father light himself on fire.
TMZ is reporting that she and Kanye are not back together, but she is simply being supportive of his creative endeavors.
While Kim in a wedding dress and Kanye lighting himself on fire were pretty shocking moments, the appearances of homophobe DaBaby and accused sexual assaulter Marilyn Manson was just downright troublesome.
West set up a replica of his childhood Chicago home inside Soldier Field. The house was surrounded by vehicles and candles, while a big screen shared Bible verses.
Kanye appeared on the stoop alongside Marilyn Manson, who is currently facing multiple lawsuits for sexual assault. A new feature from DaBaby appeared to take the place of a previously shared JAY-Z verse.
Kanye West loves controversy and knows how to get people talking, but the appearance of Manson and DaBaby has just left people with a bitter taste in their mouths.
