Kanye West’s DONDA listening party was full of surprises.
During the live-streamed event at Chicago’s Soldier Field on Thursday night, Ye and his estranged wife Kim Kardashian recreated their wedding. Kim emerged at the end of the 90-minute show in a white Balenciaga couture wedding dress with a veil covering her face.
As Kanye’s song “No Child Left Behind” played, she walked up to Kanye as he stood outside a recreation of his childhood home before the stadium went dark. The scene was reminiscent of their 2014 wedding.
Despite the display, the two are not back together. Sources tell TMZ that Kim was happy to do it for Kanye and that she continues to support his endeavors.
The shocking wedding scene came moments after Kanye set himself on fire and emerged from the burning house.
Earlier in the evening, Kanye shocked fans by bringing out two “canceled” celebrities, DaBaby and Marilyn Manson. The controversial figures stood alongside Ye as he played his album. DaBaby also recorded a verse for one track, which originally featured JAY-Z.
Other artists including Don Toliver, Conway the Machine, and Shenseea also joined Ye on stage for his third DONDA event, which follows two at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
