Kim Kardashian explains Kanye West’s 2018 Met Gala absence, wears bondage look to after party

Kim Kardashian may have gone to the 2018 Met Gala solo on Monday, but her hubby, Kanye West, had a pretty good excuse for not attending alongside her.

After the 37-year-old reality star shared several sexy photos and videos of her golden Versace look, Yeezy retweeted one image with a series of fire emojis.

“Love you babe wish you were here with meeeeee but you’re only finishing up 5 albums,” Kim replied, using laughing, fire, and heart emojis.

West, 40, has been making headlines lately for his controversial tweets about slavery, President Donald Trump, and more, prompting many of his famous friends, including John Legend, to speak out

Kim’s momager, Kris Jenner, who also attended the Met Gala, recently spoke out about West on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

"I think that anything he does – and I just think this is important to say is – he always does things with really good intentions,” Jenner said. "So, I’m going to let him explain himself when the time is ready."

Following the glamorous affair, Kim stripped down into an even more revealing looking, rocking a leather bondage-style Versace mini-dress with see-through heels. The look was reminiscent of a gown designed by Gianni Versace for his sister Donatella, which was recently featured in American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace.

She kept her hair up in the high ponytail with her long dark locks falling by her side. One very special accessory from the evening was her long fingernails, which were actually delivered by a VIP.

When one fan shared pics of Kim talking to Katy Perry backstage, Kim replied, “Katy actually flew my nails on her plane over to me from LA LOL They are jut glued on! So had to show her!”
