Kanye West arrives at his office in Calabasas

Rotund rapper Kanye West arrived for work at his Calabasas office on a Saturday afternoon. Kanye looked like he was ready for the gym as his beer belly spilled over his navy blue shorts. He dressed casually in an oversized beige sweatshirt and a yellow sweater draped over his shoulders.

The 40-year-old music producer and his wife Kim Kardashian are parents to son Saint West, 2, and daughters North West, 4, and Chicago West, born January 15.

Kanye appears to have Couvade syndrome, also called sympathetic pregnancy, in which a partner experiences some of the weight gain and other symptoms of pregnancy. Even though Kim didn't carry the couple's 3rd child, Kanye could have experienced symptoms of his pregnant surrogate.

    I don't think any woman should be with a man who doesn't care about his weight but expect you to be on point. Not saying this is the case but it's only fair

  • Dee

    He was ugly before, but now fat, ugly with ashy knees. SMDH!!!

  • Floriduhh Evans

  • Ebony Starr

  • Kemi

  • Coy little wink

    Aww...bless his heart...

  • Kanyade

    He has skinty legs. *shrugs* Good Monday morning!

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    The Kardashians females are succubi. They live off sucking the souls from black men.

  • MookieFly

  • Kayke

    Psych meds will do that to you.

  • Simone

    100 % Speak! You on point today...LOL

  • disqus_DxKO3ThTGI

    Love your profile pick....lmao

  • TMW

    That was my thought as well!

  • Blah Blahhhhh


  • disqus_DxKO3ThTGI

    For some reason, I think Yeezee has a big eggplant and knows how to use it.....He gives me that NASTY bedroom teez....lol....Well, maybe because I only date tall men that have a lil extra weight on em......Nothing like a Teddy Bear.....

  • abby500

    Maybe he carried the baby? DID y’all ever think about that?????

  • Rayne

    Look at em ? got that safe ass outfit on.

  • abby500

    Does he EVER dress nice anymore. He looks terrible.

  • kkkjinx

    Gone are the days when Yezzy use to dress in suits and pink polo's. Sadly i thought his style would be through the roof when he paired with Kim but it seems they both dress down now. Hell even Kim use to be fly before she got with Kanye and had the kids. Hate to say it but he had swagger with Amber. Quick question...when you date a man do you change up your style or remain the same? I'm very preppy but when I dated my ex who was strictly t shirt and sneakers I noticed I started dressing down for him because people would think I was his attorney or something lol. Now that we've broken up (six months ago) I'm back dressing preppy and pretty. idk random Monday thoughts?!?!?

  • Indies beauty

    Lol he looks good to me. There's nothing wrong with him loving life.

  • Renee26

    Rotund?? How rude lol

  • starbright9449

    At least he's doing something about the weight.

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me


  • 100milesperhour

    Kanye' was ripped w/Amber. Kim was glamour girl fly w/Kris H. tried to edge Kim out, that's not her style. They both fell off w/each other. He should've let Kim remain a fantasy in his head.

  • SumthinSweeter

    that is a very good question. guess it depends on how strong u are independently in ur own style choices. my last relationship, he would gift me things related to my style and vice versa. Kanye literally went all hollyweird and at one point was supposedly styling Kim. smh. everything "casual" they wear lately looks over washed and faded.

  • SumthinSweeter

    hahahaha ?? good one

  • SumthinSweeter

    no zippers or anything "harmful".

  • shay2shaymd


  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    "Rotund rapper"...ooohh I just died!!!

  • R in NYC

    Antidepressants cause weight gain.

  • Renee26

    He don't care about nothin! He didn't even pull his socks up properly

  • Chele

    Or maybe he gave birth to the baby.????? If people had discernment and challenged simple anatomy (sloped shoulders on “men,” broad shoulders and prominent brow ridge on “women.” Adam’s apple vs no Adam’s apple or shaved Adam’s apple), a lot could be explained in a lot of Hollyweird photos.?

  • Renee26

    Ok makes sense lol

  • Chele

    P.S. Strong-faced “women,” soft-faced “men.” Length of index finger (longer than ring finger on real women) vs ring finger (longer than index finger on real men). There are real women that can have longer ring fingers, however that is due to larger amounts of testosterone present. Don’t mind me though, I am just passing through.

  • Evillene

    His face has always been jowly. Now the rest of him is catching up. But he just needs a good 10 week training plan and he can drop 30 pounds and tone his physique. Rich people problems...

  • Damnshame

    Kim is not fucking this clone

  • Rayne

    Yea that preppy look that he failed at. I can’t stand men that wear sweaters over their sweater ?

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    For sure- that is why they needed a surrogate. His meds is causing weight gain and probably messing with his libido while Kim looks like a lazy lay.

  • Guest©

    Yup, let him be sane and fat.

  • Guest©

    Kanye is tall?!?

  • Willette Capers

    I personally think its the anti psychotic meds. They usually add weight to you.

  • JRock

    I'm not a fan of Kanye and don't like his music but I am glad to see he is still on his medications. That weight gain is from the psyche meds he takes. Notice how much calmer he's been since the weight gain? Same as when Rihanna started taking psyche meds and her weight blew up. The extra weight actually looks good on her though. Ain't no shame in taking your meds if it keeps you from going satellite ballistic on people.

  • IAmLawlessBrooks

    lmao @lazy lay lmao

  • JRock

    Uh uh. I'm the preppy type and the pretty feminine clothes type too. I remember a couple of brothers I dated in the past that would show up like they were going to work in a mechanic car repair shop and I would look around and say something like oh you must have forgot we decided on dinner at "so and so" restaurant. I guess we'll have to change our plans and go to McDonalds or the movies. Next time brother would call me and say what's the dress code for this restaurant yada yada. And I'd say a sports jacket and slacks. Got it. Men who aren't into dressing for the occasion can't conform unfortunately, and I will be dayumed if I'm going to a Michelin $$$$ restaurant with someone wearing run down sneakers and faded jeans. He couldn't even put the dayum jeans that still got the blue in them on. Dayum, dayum, dayum,

  • Bonita

    Awww . . . Saint continues to dress his life sized Kanye doll.

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    He doesn't look all that bad to me.....it's the clothes that makes him look frumpy

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Rihanna started taking psyche meds.

    Which meds? I thought she just stopped doing c/oke.

  • JRock

    Rihanna was a mess. It's obvious she was self-medicating with the coke and alcohol. You just can't do coke like that, come off of it and think things are going to be okay. You have to go on psyche meds to deal with the issues that were causing you to self-medicate with the coke and alcohol. That weight gain over night like that is not the result of too many hamburgers and eating good in the neighborhood. That's medication.

  • disqus_DxKO3ThTGI

    Idk if Yeezy is tall, but the men I'm attracted to should be tall and heavy set.....Just cant get with a lean man....I think Yeezy is at least 5'11- 6 ft....

  • Desiree Edwards

    lol, he's been fat....since the reprogramming of MK Ultra....Kim k is a witch and is his handler

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    I concur.

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    Wish him well mentally and those meds may be the cause of it.

  • kkkjinx

    I like what you said "Men who aren't into dressing for the occasion can't conform"
    His mother still keeps in contact with me and said he he's gotten worse since we broke up. I use to wash his clothes and fold them and everything. Apparently he went out and found a nasty heffa just like him. He's gonna be a father in a few months and i kid you not just called me last monday asking can i fix him up a resume because he lost his job. MInd you when we were dating he told me I needed to stop trying to look for another job since I worked in HR and that's as good as im going to get. (he hates change) we once I kicked him to the curb for knocking up that nasty heffa of his I found a job paying $5 more than i was getting before. Screw him...im sorry i needed to vent held that in for a whole week. Didnt want to tell my buddies because they would be upset that i even answered the phone for his punk ass. I mourn our relationship but I definatly dont want him back. But his mother would have been the perfect mother in law. Gotta cut her off soon but she's harder to break up with than her son lol.

    Kanye really thinks he's white now.

    "Rotund rapper" why did this give me the biggest fit of giggles??? ???????

  • bashi

    Kanye West Kanye West Kanye West. All your ranting on every interview you did just to be end up silent and chubby. Kardashian’s really sucks out the energy out of any black man

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    Okay Sandy. There was no other way to describe Kanye except for calling him a "Rotund rapper"? ? Tuh...smh.

    I immediately thought of the Rotunda at the Natural History Museum which houses an elephant. Smh. Rude.

  • dontgetblocked

    This is what a black man looks like when he chooses a run-through Becky as a wife. He's fat, drugged up, and voiceless just like whitey likes black men. This was the man that once said that President Bush didn't care about black people. Now he lives in Calabasas surrounded by white people. Hmmmm.

  • dontgetblocked

    That sums it up. We all saw the Ray J video.

    I think "rotund" fits him perfectly. ?

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    Sure you do Sandy. Sure you do. Kanye can't catch a break.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Psyche meds will cause you to gain weight. I'm wishing him the best. Mental illness isn't easy on the person or their families.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    I shouldn't have laughed but it was down right funny!

  • Hmmm~?

    Not digging the footwear. He also looks hella weird stepping out that Maybach. You can tell he bought it just because he could. Definitely doesn’t look like a car he would drive.

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    He is dressed like someone's daddy at the family reunion barbeque... lol!! This is the fashion icon all these young kids want to be like?! I need to buy more sweatshirts, huh... lol

  • HoneyyGoodMoneyy_

    lol yuck.

  • Trace da Ace

I laughed through this whole post....ok....he has on LAYERS...so that may be why he looks so pudgy....them socks NO BUENO!! and Kanye just said fuk the lotion.....he needs to realize that he is a brown skin brotha and we all need lotion....period. Hanging around Kim and them got him thinking he can pass....NOPE!

  • Dahl

    He looks like he suffering from pill bloat and middle-age spread, not so much sympathatic surrogate pregnancy...

  • Decked Out

    Great POST. I truly feel he will NEVER be the SAME. These witches get close to MEN and DESTROY them...slowly.

  • Decked Out

    I believe It's the Momma Pimp who is his HANDLER.

  • SDot

    Those kartrashians fake insecure ppl will do that to the men

  • Floriduhh Evans

    Thanks ??
