Kim Kardashian Tweets to Kanye West 'Wish You Were Here' During Met Gala
Kim Kardashian West flew solo on the Met Gala red carpet this year, but husband Kanye West wasn't far from her mind
The reality star made sure to take a break from the star-studded evening to respond to West on Twitter after he shared a photo of her in the night’s sultry outfit: a custom chainmail Versace dress in gold featuring crosses embroidered on the bodice and hip. Kardashian West completed with look with a smokey eye (with extreme lashes!) and her hair in a sleek half up-do.
The 40-year-old rapper made sure to let everyone know exactly what he thought of the ensemble with a series of fire emojis.
Kardashian West retweeted the post with a reply excusing him for his absence: “Love you babe wish you were here with meeeeee but you’re only finishing up 5 albums.” The reality star added a heart, flame and crying laughing emoji.
After a headline-making couple of a weeks — during which West repeatedly voiced support for President Donald Trump, revealed he was addicted to opioids after undergoing liposuction and suggested slavery was a “choice” during a live stream interview with TMZ — the couple headed to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, where the star is focus on his upcoming music.
“Kim happily joined Kanye in Jackson Hole. She wants to be supportive so he can finish his album,” a Keeping Up with the Kardashians source told PEOPLE. “The album has caused Kanye a lot of stress. He is a perfectionist and wants the music to be amazing.”
