Kim Kardashian West rented out a luxury private tropical island for her birthday

Kardashian West turns 40 years old on Oct. 21, and according to Page Six, she is ringing in this milestone with a bang. 

The site reports that the reality star has rented out a luxury private island — rumored to be located somewhere in the Caribbean — where she will hold an epic birthday bash.

The SKIMS founder is planning to fly her closest family and friends via private jet to the remote island but is refusing to tell any of her guests the exact destination.

Rather than the reality star revealing where her lavish birthday bash will be held, she’s just made her guests aware that they will all be picked up in the early hours sometime next week to board a jet, and only then will they learn of the party location.

“All the guests know is when to be ready to be picked up for the flight, which will leave the Los Angeles area early next week,” a source told Page Six. “The destination is being kept strictly under wraps for privacy reasons, but that isn’t stopping everyone [from] speculating.”

Though this trip sounds like it’ll be a fun and relaxing getaway for Kardashian West as well as her friends and family, she still plans to ensure that everyone on the trip is safe amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Since the party will likely feature more than 10 people, the KKW Beauty mogul’s guests have already been tested for COVID-19 and will be retested prior to the occasion.

Kardashian West had to change her original birthday plans due to COVID-19

Although celebrating her 40th birthday on a private island with family and friends will likely be an unforgettable experience for Kardashian West, ringing in her special day this way actually wasn’t her original plan.

In a recent interview with Grazia magazine, the KUWTK star revealed that she had planned to throw herself a western-themed birthday party. But due to the pandemic, she was forced to cancel the bash until next year.

“It was going to be called Wild, Wild Miss West’s 40th birthday. I had Manfred Thierry Mugler make me a metal costume. Like, a cowgirl costume,” she explained. “I have it and it is insane. We did virtual fittings. I don’t even want to waste it on a party me for myself with five people. I want it to be something. So, I’m thinking maybe next year. I can have it on my 41st. We can still call it my 40th, right?”

Though it’s a bummer Kardashian West had to cancel her original birthday plans, at least she still gets to ring in her special day on a private island with friends and family.

But helping the reality star celebrate her 40th birthday won’t just be reserved for her loved ones.

Earlier this week, E! announced that it will air a KUWTK marathon featuring Kardashian West’s most iconic episodes and moments as well as a special program titled “Kim’s 40th Birthday Special,” so that Kim K stans can also celebrate this milestone.
