Inside Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s Awkward Relationship With Burger King

We’re always hearing about celebrities and their crazy diets. A ton of celebs are on plant based diets. Some overdo it on protein. Others only snack on fruit. That’s why it’s refreshing to hear about Kim and Kanye West’s relationship with fast food. 

Both of them are notorious fast food lovers. Their love and dedication to cheap, quick eats is unparalleled, as far as we know. They’ve even gifted each other fast-food restaurants.

Specifically, 10 Burger Kings, or at least the rights to open them. The restaurants never materialized, but it’s the thought that counts. West bought the rights to open the franchises across Europe, as a kind of wedding gift for Kardashian. 

That may not seem like a romantic wedding gift, but when you love fast food as much as Kardashian and West, it may be just what you’re craving.

The whole West family has a strange obsession with fast food. Kanye West’s father started a quick-service restaurant himself. 

Burger King is not the only fast food restaurant they love

When it comes to fast food, Kardashian and West don’t seem to discriminate. West wrote a poem to accompany a Frank Ocean album dedicated to a fast-food chain.

The poem, called “McDonald’s Man,” was all about McDonald’s, specifically how amazing their fries are.

It’s a literary masterpiece, with lines like “Even the McRib was jealous of the fries/I see it through his artificial meat eyes.”

That’s not the only time West has included fast food in his art. He mentioned Chipotle in a verse he recorded for a Schoolboy Q song, and it ended up being a major marketing win for the chain.

They didn’t pay Weste for the name drop; he apparently did it because of their delicious burritos. He’s mentioned other chain restaurants in his lyrics, too, and he owns the rights to open 10 Fatburger chains in the Chicago metro area.

West isn’t the only person in the West family to have a close relationship with fast food. Kardashian has received gifts from McDonald’s as thanks for her mentioning her favorite fast food items online before. Specifically, they sent her a gift card in a Givenchy wallet. 

Where do the Burger Kings rate on their list of excessive gifts?

All celebrity couples give each other crazy presents. West giving Kardashian 10 Burger Kings is kind of weird, but as far as celebrity gifts go, it might not be too outlandish. 

Apparently, West has a history of very original gifts. For Valentine’s Day, he hired Kenny G to play saxophone in the couple’s living room, while surrounded by single roses in clear glass vases.

Kardashian loved it. She thought it was the most thoughtful gift any woman has ever received. It wasn’t her favorite present from her husband, though.

According to Kardashian, the best gift she ever got from West was a box containing Adidas socks, Apple headphones, and a Mickey Mouse toy.

The items were really just symbols. West bought Kardashian stock in all three companies and found a cute way to tell her about it.  

Sometimes he goes for more traditional presents. One Christmas he purchased a $14 million dollar Miami Beach condo for Kardashian.

Just this month, West donated $1 million to charities Kardashian supports for her birthday. He put the donations in the names of their children, Psalm, North, Saint, and Chicago. Kardashian was definitely pleased with the gift, and fans are too.

These two are using their money and influence for good, and we couldn’t be happier.
