Kanye West has shied away from the spotlight in recent weeks, most notably failing to attend the Met Gala in New York on May 1 with wife Kim Kardashian.
But yesterday he was spotted by fans dining at posh eatery Nobu in Miami. Dressed in a black denim jacket and black tracksuit bottoms, the rapper braved the LA summer heat.
Kanye was happy to pose for a photo with a fan Patrick Grimaldi, who uploaded the snap to his instagram page with the caption: “I MET KANYE WEST IM NEVER GOING TO FAIL.”
Kanye's Nobu lunch follows reports that his marriage to Kim is under strain . heat magazine, out today, reports that the couple could even be preparing to split.
“Right now, things are very tough for their marriage," a source tells heat.
The 24th of May will mark the pair’s third wedding anniversary. But last week, Kanye, 39, left LA for a remote mountain top in Wyoming, to get to work on his new album. He also deleted his beloved Twitter and Instagram accounts.
Kim is still posting on Instagram as usual but she hasn't posted a picture with Kanye - who was hospitalised after suffering a breakdown in November - in four weeks.
heat magazine report that the rapper’s recent escape to the mountains is less about his music and more about escaping the couple’s problems.
They say: “We’re all concerned that this could be a sign their marriage is on the rocks and that they want time apart. Kanye is in a very odd place in his life right now, so he’s happy to take a break. Kim convinced him that this was the best solution for him, as it would allow him to take time out of the spotlight.
