Thursday, Apr 18, 2013 2:00PM
Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West is reportedly headed back home after an extensive stay in Paris and could end up appearing on an upcoming episode of "Saturday Night Live."
Despite a return home, reports claim Mr. West has already started to consider a permanent stay in the "City of Love."
Kanye West is due back in the States next month, Page Six has exclusively learned, but it's not necessarily to rush to the side of his very pregnant reality star girlfriend, Kim Kardashian. Sources tell us the rapper -- who's been working on a new album in France -- will appear as musical guest on "SNL" on May 18. West's been holed up in a palatial pad ever since Paris fashion week in February, leaving his baby mama alone to brave pregnancy and public scrutiny over her weight, maternity fashions and upcoming divorce trial with Kris Humphries. Sources tell us the rapper's even pondering a permanent move to Paris. An NBC rep would only say the show hasn't announced its lineup. (New York Post)
Recent rumors have suggested Ye's girlfriend may give birth to their first child together in Paris.
Kim Kardashian's first child may be rude, drenched in stinky perfume with hairy armpits ... because her place of birth may be Paris. Kim was sashaying around gay Purr-ee with baby daddy Kanye West last week and sources close to the couple tell us, she stopped into a hospital specifically to scope out the maternity ward. We're told Kim is seriously considering popping in Paris for several reasons -- the main one being Paris has strict anti-paparazzi laws ... which is why Halle Berry says she wants to move there. Another reason ... Kanye has a sick pad in Paris. And it doesn't hurt that Paris is the fashion capital of the world. FYI, the baby's due in July. Sacrébleu! (TMZ)
Coincidentally, Yeezy was spotted last week performing at a Mos Def concert in Paris.
Kanye West gave his hit "Can't Tell Me Nothing" a jazz twist by performing the song with Robert Glasper and Mos Def (aka Yasiin Bey) in Paris this week. Video footage of the performance at Le Bataclan quickly made its way online, showcasing Ye rocking his signature gold chains and black t-shirt. Ye has worked with Robert Glasper in the past. In 2011, he spit a freestyle during Glasper's NYC show at Bluenote Jazz Club in NYC. (RapFix)
