Kanye West Recreates Kim Kardashian Wedding at Donda Listening Event

On Thursday, Kanye west held another Donda listening event in Chicago at Soldier Field.

During the final song, West surprised fans after being set on fire and then greeted by a bride. There was plenty of speculation on who the bride was, but it was confirmed to be Kim Kardashian, in a Balenciaga Couture wedding gown and a veil covering her face.

The Kardashian-Jenner family took to their social media reacting to the moment. Kylie Jenner shared images on her Instagram Story of Kanye and Kim, and Khloe Kardashian tweeted, “insanely beautiful!!!”

Many fan accounts documented the listening party’s final moments, too. One user tweeted, “Beautiful Ending,” along with a photo of Kanye and Kim.

Another fan account posted a video on Instagram, showing Kanye and Kim walking out of the venue hand in hand.

The rapper brought out controversial guests throughout the night, as well, to make an odd statement on “cancel culture.” Joining him on stage was DaBaby, who has recently come under fire for making homophobic comments. He also brought out Marilyn Manson, who has been accused of sexual assault and grooming from at least five women.

This was the third listening event for Donda, following two performances at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, where it was reported Kanye was living to finish the album.

Donda’s initial release was set to be July 23 but was pushed back multiple times, as were updated release dates for August. Apple Music currently lists September 5 as the new date, but that is likely going to change.

Kim was a spectator at the first two listening events, joined by her and Kanye’s four children.
