The "Power" crooner was spotted shopping in Los Angeles on Monday, August 16, while wearing a bizarre face mask that covered his entire face, and his wedding ring. The photos — taken by a fan and posted to The Jasmine Brand Instagram account — show West inside a funky skate shop. West kept it casual during his shopping extravaganza, as he wore black sweats, a baggy t-shirt and lavish slippers.
West's wedding jewel certainly caught fans' attention; however, many were more focused on where his highly anticipated Donda album is. The rapper previously vowed to stay in Atlanta's Mercedes-Benz Stadium until he finished his tenth studio album — so his recent L.A. outing caused quite the stir given that he has yet to drop Donda.
The Instagram account's comment section immediately filled with eager fans who are desperately waiting to hear the hitmaker's latest tunes. "Does this mean Donda is done?" one person questioned. "We ain’t never gone get donda," another stated as a third added: "He finally left the cell," referring to his stint at the Atlanta arena.
Donda, named after his late mother, was originally set to release on July 23, and then August 6. There is no official release date in sight at this point.
Despite being in full support of her baby daddy's work, OK! exclusively learned Kardashian — who the artist has been married to since 2014 — is growing impatient with West amid their ongoing divorce proceedings. The KKW beauty founder, 40, filed for divorce from West in February after the two had been "living separate lives" for months.
The OK! insider revealed the estranged A-list couple is on "much better terms" than when Kardashian first filed court papers to end their seven-year marriage. However, the former reality star is "still having trouble getting him to come to the negotiating table."
While Kardashian is trying to iron out a formal custody arrangement for their kids, West, 44, "seems to just keep stalling," explained the source.
OK! reported the co-parents were trying to deal with their divorce in private to shield their kids from the drama. "They want this to be a gradual process while they figure out boundaries that will make the negotiations easier," the source pointed out, but West keeps testing Kardashian's patience.
West may be too focused on his upcoming album to worry about his divorce from the reality star. The "Bound 2" rapper is reportedly looking for another stadium after calling the George arena his home since July.
According to Dazed, rapper KayCyy — who is rumored to be appearing on the new album — spilled in a since-deleted Tweet: “We’re moving to another stadium.” It's unclear if the new stadium will still be located in Georgia or if West is looking for a new change of scenery.
