Thank God for small favors. Kim Kardashian will probably not be rocking Jeremy Scott‘s hideous, McDonald’s-themed Moschino collection any time soon, because Kanye West is giving her Burger King as a wedding gift.
When we heard the news, we were hoping it was just a big plate of hamburgers or something. But actually Kanye West is allegedly giving Kim Kardashian 10 Burger King franchises as a wedding gift. It’s certainly generous, though not exactly romantic.
It will be fancy, though, because Kim’s Burger King restaurants won’t be located in the plain old USA. No, she’ll be running a mini American fast food empire in locations all around Europe. (Europe is going to be thrilled with her, we can tell.)
According to MSN Entertainment, an unnamed source said:
“As always, Kanye is thinking outside the box when it comes to gifts for Kim. She owns all the jewels anyone could ever want, so he is taking the practical route by investing in businesses for her instead. Kanye wants to buy her 10 restaurants across the UK, Italy and France, making her a real international businesswoman.”
Nobody has clarified who exactly that “source” is or why he or she would have access to this kind of insider information, but the rumor is not all that far-fetched. 10 Burger King restaurants is a generous and practical gift, and Kanye is a food-industry player himself. He owns a company called KW Foods that operates several Fatburger restaurants in Chicago, so it makes sense that he’d want to bring Kim into the foodservice industry with him.
Kanye likes to think outside the box when it comes to gifts. His Christmas gift to Kim was a ridiculous Hermès Birkin that had been hand-painted with naked ladies and demons. That’s why we were so surprised by the fact that his Valentine’s Day gift to Kim was just 1,000 red roses. For Kanye, that’s downright predictable. 10 Burger King restaurants is not romantic, but at least it isn’t predictable.
