Kim Kardashian’s second best non-family friend (her first goes by the name Doctor-something) Jonathan Cheban has managed to get his little side-project some attention. Last year, Jonathan tried to re-brand himself as more than just the guy who follows the Kardashians around. He called himself Food God (stylized as the much more insufferable foodgōd) and appointed himself as the deity of acting like a snob at restaurants. All of Jonathan’s social media handles are @foodgod, and he’s decided to commit even more to his douchey moniker.
Jonathan told Page Six that he’s legally changing his name to foodgōd, and claims he got the nickname from Kanye West. All this nonsense over what was most likely a misheard nickname. Foodgod? I don’t think so. There is only one god to Kanye, and his name is Kanye. Kanye probably said Fooddog. Jonathan loves to eat, and he’s basically Kim’s lap dog.
According to The Blast, this isn’t a Cher or Madonna thing, where he just goes by one name. Jonathan is legally changing his middle name to foodgōd. He has also filed a trademark application for foodgōd, and launched a foodgōd website (www.foodgod.com). He’s just a few legal documents away from making his new identity a reality, and he’s extremely excited about it.
“Everyone calls me foodgod; scream it in the streets and run up to me in restaurants, and I want people calling me foodgod when they write about me – not Jonathan or BFF.”
Poor delusional Jonathan Cheban/Kim’s BFF. The only person who will scream the words “food” and “god” while running up to Jonathan Cheban in a restaurant is a waiter to say: “No sir, we don’t know who you are. You still have to pay for your goddamn food.”
