As he plans ‘pivotal role’ for fiancee Kim Kardashian in Yeezus inspired movie
With Paris Fashion Week underway Kanye West’s attendance, given his staunch affiliation with the French capital, was to be expected on Thursday as Balenciaga unveiled their latest collection.
The temperamental rapper arrived in typically overstated style on a grey, overcast day in the city, purring to a stop outside the Paris Observatory in a matte black four-door Porsche.
Kanye was expressionless as his security guards cut a path through the waiting throng of photographers while an assistant held an umbrella aloft, thus ensuring he didn’t get wet as the rain poured.

The rapper and producer’s fondness for Balenciaga has been well documented over recent months – not least his predilection for their distinctive Arena high-tops, which retail at a pricy £327 ($545).
Away from the runway Kanye is said to be joining forces with American novelist and screenwriter Brett Easton Ellis on a gritty new film project based primarily on his biographical 2013 album, Yeezus.
Sources claim the Black Skinhead rapper will write the script with American Psycho author Ellis and is keen to ensure there’s a prominent role for fiancée Kim Kardashian.

‘Kim is definitely going to be in it,’ an inside told Radar. ‘The screenplay already features her character.
‘They’re still working on the script, so it’s unclear at this point if Kim will be a major star of the movie or making a smaller cameo. But her role in the movie will be pivotal.’
Ellis has also confirmed that the lyrical content on West’s latest album will provide a jumping off point for the muted film project.

‘Kanye and I have been meeting about writing a script for him and so that’s a project that’s kind of in the works,’ he told The Vice.
‘He came and asked me to write the film. I didn’t want to at first. Then I listened to Yeezus. It was early summer last year and I was driving in my car. He’d given me an advance copy, and I thought, regardless of whether I’m right for this project, I want to work with whoever made this.
So f**k it, I said yes. And that’s how it happened. That was seven or eight months ago. We’ll see what happens.
