Kanye West’s relationship with Kim Kardashian has been like watching the scene in Back To The Future III when the runaway train speeds towards the edge of the cliff. The cliff obviously represents marriage in this botched metaphor, and now it looks like someone just hit fast forward. Although the two have brought up the topic marriage just a month after taking their relationship public, that just seemed like an abstract discussion. Now they really might do it for real.
According to a report from RadarOnline, Yeezy is busy designing an engagement ring for his beloved Kim, and prepping to pop the question just as soon as her divorce from Kris Humphries becomes final. The sweet part is that he’s apparently using stones from his late mother Donda’s collection. “Kanye picked out some of Donda’s most expensive pieces, including some diamond earrings and a ruby ring,” a friend of Kanye’s told Radar. “Donda was such an important person in Kanye’s life, he thought the world of her and was devastated when she died…Now Kanye has found a woman he respects and loves just as much as his mom, so he wants to share her jewelry collection with Kim.”
Despite the nice gesture, not everyone in Kanye’s camp is thrilled. They concerned that if something (god forbid) should sour in their relationship, Kim will pocket the heirloom-leaden ring. Given her questionable relationship history, that sounds like a pretty valid concern. “Because it’s a gift, it would be difficult for Kanye to ask for it back if they ever split up.”
Kanye’s mother is factoring into a great many of his wedding plans. The rapper is reportedly pushing the marriage ceremony to take place in either his home town of Chicago or in Oklahoma where his mom was buried following her death in 2007. “Oklahoma is his personal choice because his mother’s grave is there – and he wants her at his wedding in spirit.”
