Kim Kardashian threatened to cancel Kanye West’s “over the top” party. “Finances stress me out more than anything in life,” Kardashian said.
Kim and Kanye West took over mother-in-law Kris Jenner’s duties and threw a Christmas party last year. Unfortunately, Kanye went way over the top and “over the budget” with his lavish ideas for the Christmas Eve party. The over the top party cost $1.3 million even after it was cut back quite a bit.
According to People, Kim said “The Christmas Eve party, I mentioned it to Kanye so of course, he came up with these wild ideas. It’s definitely over the top.”
When Kim found out that West had gone over the top and “over the budget” as per her say she stepped in.
Kim Taking Over
Kim Kardashian warned West that she was going to cancel the party. However, she told her husband on the phone, “I really need you to not be upset, but this is so inappropriate that it’s so much money for a party for one night. Finances stress me out more than anything in life, so just know that. … The Christmas party is going to change. For one night, for a few hours, and I want to kick everyone out? We can’t do this. We have to cut so much of that.”
Furthermore, she continued “First of all, we can’t put snow in the street … and we do not need an ice skating rink. I don’t want to ruin our whole landscaping. I literally will cancel the whole party.”
Kim had some reservations towards West’s ideas and they were still able to make small changes which lead to the party being a hit.
Kim said, “Kanye and I were able to make some changes. It should be about the entertainment inside and having a good time with good food. I had to let go and just say alright, this is at your house, this is how you want it.”
She further elaborates, “I was so drunk. And I never get drunk! It was on. Everyone was drunk. I think Khloé stayed dancing all night long. … It was honestly the best night.”
She also added “It’s just so much fun that we have the best mix of family, friends. I completely respect and have a newfound appreciation for all of the parties that my mom has thrown us over the years. There’s so much work into this.”
Kris Jenner praised Kim and West and said“I’m not going to lie, it actually felt really good to let someone else handle it for once. Kim and Kanye did a great job with the party. I think it was mostly Kanye, but it was amazing.”
