Kim Kardashian Rented Out the Entire Staples Center For Kanye West’s Birthday Party

Reality star and businesswoman Kim Kardashian shelled out a steep $110,000 to rent out the entire Staples Center in Los Angeles for a day for husband Kanye West’s 38th birthday.

June 10, 2015
Reality star and
Kardashian chose the Staples Center as the location for West’s birthday party so that West, a team of NBA stars and a few dozen of his famous buddies could play basketball.
It was supposed to be a surprise party, which is why Kardashian, 34, blindfolded West as they drove to the Staples Center on the night of the party.
The party was A-listers only. In attendance were NBA power players Russell Westbrook and John Wall, Justin Bieber, Tyga and Pusha T, among others. John Legend was on hand to sing West a happy birthday.
Kardashian wanted the basketball game party to feel official so she even hired real NBA referees and a few Laker girls. In addition, Houston Rockets guard James Harden and rapper 2 Chainz acted as celebrity coaches for Yeezy’s big day.

As West shot hoops, the Kardashian-Jenner clan of Kim, Khloe and Kylie Jenner took photos of the rapper and his friends to post on Instagram. One of Khloe’s captions on Instagram read:
“Kim rented out staples bitch!!! Him and his boys are going to ball!!!! Happy birthday Yeezy!!!!”
Kim’s Instagram of her and her hubby included the caption:
“Happy Birthday to my best friend in the entire world! You are the most amazing husband & dad! You inspire me every single day! You make all of your dreams reality & it’s fascinating to be by your side & watching it all happen! You have a heart of gold! Have the best birthday ever! #SWISH.”
Kim also took to Instagram to thank the arena:
“Thank you Staples Center for the most amazing birthday party for Kanye!”
Dropping six figures to rent out the 20,000-capacity stadium is pocket change to Kardashian, especially since she made an estimated $28 million alone last year. And besides, sticker shock isn’t something the Kardashian-West super duo seem to ever experience. West spent $200,000 to rent out AT&T Park in October of 2013 just so he could propose to Kim, and their subsequent wedding reportedly cost upwards of an astounding $30 million.
Yep, that’s all definitely chump change.
