Kanye West Has Hired A Private Chef While Working On “Donda” And Living At The Mercedes-Benz Stadium
There’s a lot going on surrounding Kanye West‘s postponed release of Donda, except the actual release itself, but true billionaire genius can’t be rushed! It vibrates at a higher frequency than we poor, dullard plebs can even detect, but one thing we all have in common, lofty genius and flatlining slob alike, is hunger, and fueling the album of a lifetime clearly requires more than the unidentifiable gristly bits that go into a $40 hot dog, so Kanye has brought a private chef on board. You’d think after years of being married into a family committed to “reduce/reuse/recycle” of body parts, that some hastily assembled offcuts of meat would be enough, but here we are.
Kanye has been holed up in a grim little space in Atlanta’s Mercedez-Benz Stadium while frantically attempting to complete the finishing touches on Donda, his much-hyped tenth album. A little over a week ago, he hosted a listening party there, and the album was supposed to drop the next day, but all of our dull-witted, commoner hopes were dashed when that didn’t happen. Page Six has the story on both the humble hovel and the fancy private chef.
via Page Six:
We hear that initially West was essentially squatting at the stadium after hosting a massive listening party there, and then deciding to take up residence in the massive 71,000-seat arena to put the finishing touches on the recording.
He shared an image on social media of the cinderblock room where he is presumably staying, which includes just a twin bed, a TV and a small closet.
But sources also tell us the rapper has now also brought in a private chef.
Now, some of us are still shaken by the image of Kanye wearing what may have been one of his estranged wife Kim Kardashian‘s SKIMS stockings on his head at the listening party, while decked out from the neck down in what resembled a giant mosquito engorged with blood from Johnny Depp after a refined evening of sipping a $1,000 bottle of red wine.
Here is his room at the stadium, which looks like a prison cell thrown together from the picked-over dregs that remained after a Black Friday sale at the Staples in Peoria in 1986. It’s also rumored that Kanye is paying $1M a day to live in this lap of luxury. Seriously?

Page Six continues:
Reports have said West, 44, will now release the record on Aug. 6. We noticed that Atlanta’s NFL squad, the Falcons, has a ticketed practice at the stadium on Aug. 7. West has already been at the stadium during a pro soccer game.
Meanwhile, West’s team announced on Friday that he is also planning a release event for Aug. 5 at his temporary Atlanta home. Reports said he wants to concoct something different from the last event in order to give fans another experience.
The last one brought in a reported 3.3 million streams on Apple Music, and stars at the first listening party included West’s estranged wife Kim Kardashian and their kids, as well as Shaquille O’Neal, CeeLo Green, Big Boi and Jadakiss.
The previous event was also attended by Kim, Khloé Kardashian, and annoying AF Kardashian hanger-on, Foodgōd (Jonathan Cheban), but there’s no indication that he was the private chef hired. The last listening party was actually sold out, so maybe the upcoming one will lure attendees despite the whole dashed-hope thing that became of the first.

Speaking of dashed hopes, where is Irina Shayk? After all that reassurance that she and Kanye were, in fact, still a hot, real, and totally not stunting item, everything is starting to look as shaky as Donda‘s release date.
And we don’t know if this mysterious chef hired to cater to Kanye’s bizarre whims will also be in charge of the menu for those in attendance for the next listening event, but maybe they can class up the joint and pull some rare delicacies from Kim’s apartment-sized refrigerator (leftover salad, whatever protein shake she’s shilling this week and one of Saint’s half-eaten Snickers bars).
