Lamar Odom

I Chose Not to Attend

Kim/Kanye Proposal

EXCLUSIVE

102313_lamar_odom_launch_wm
Lamar Odom tells TMZ he hasn't been blackballed from the Kardashian family -- and WAS invited to Kanye's big proposal to Kim -- but he CHOSE not to go because he had better things to do that night.

It was just one of the topics Lamar addressed on his way out of the Spitting Chicken Cantina in Sherman Oaks, CA last night ... telling us about his friendship with Kobe, his relationship with his dad and his battle to get back into the NBA.

In fact, L.O. says he believes he's back in playing shape -- telling us, "I can play a basketball game and probably play really well."

He wanted to prove it by showing off his physique -- jokingly asking, "Do you wanna see me with my shirt off or my pants down?"

Don't worry, he didn't follow through on his offer.

In the end, Lamar couldn't have been nicer .... but something still seems off.

Kanye West strolled into his hotel this afternoon in San Francisco ... just hours after proposing to baby mama Kim Kardashian -- and the guy looked REALLY HAPPY!

West was in such a great mood all day today. In fact, the rap star even threw out a peace sign to the photogs who were snapping his pic -- it's almost like he got laid last night or something.

Congrats pal ... on the engagement (and on the getting laid thing).

Marriage Proposal

Coming to Kardashian Show Near You

1022-kanye-kim-composite-01
Kanye West pulled out all the stops when he proposed to Kim Kardashian last night ... paying the orchestra members a relative fortune ... all while cameras were rolling.

A member of the orchestra tells TMZ ... she was paid 4 times what she usually gets for such a gig -- members snagged up to 1k each.

She says no one got wind of Kanye's plan until 2 days before the event.   A contractor reached out to a bunch of musicians in the area.  But here's the thing ...The orchestra members kept the secret for a full 2 days.  They did sign non-disclosure agreements, but you know how that works ...

The woman also tells us ... multiple cameras were rolling during Kanye's proposal, so there's plenty of material for the Kardashian reality show.  We're told Kanye has final approval over whether it goes on the show or not.

As for the event ... she says Kanye was "very hands on."

Yeezus!

Engaged with a 15 Carat Rock

Exclusive Details

1022_stadium_launch_3Kim Kardashian is officially on lockdown ... again -- Kanye West pulled off a huge birthday surprise by renting out an entire baseball stadium and asking Kim to marry him Monday evening.

Naturally, Kanye went super-baller for the proposal -- sources connected to the couple tell us Yeezy flew Kim to San Francisco, blindfolded her, and whisked her off to AT&T Park ... home of the Giants.

Ye secured the ballpark for the event -- and we're told he had a full orchestra there playing Lana Del Rey's "Young and Beautiful" ... one of Kim's favorite songs.

We're told Kanye went traditional for one part ... getting on one knee in the middle of the field and popping the question with a 15 CARAT DIAMOND RING!!! (15ct. was not the traditional part).

1022-kimk-kanye-01Shocker ... she said yes. Family and friends then joined the couple on the field to celebrate.

102213_kendall_keek_launch

The engagement comes 4 months after Kim and Kanye's daughter North was born -- and 18 months after they went public as a couple.

Monday was Kim's 33rd birthday. This will be her third shot at "til death do us part," and Kanye's first.

BTW -- In case you're interested, it costs $35k to rent out the field.  We're guessing he can afford it.

I'm Wearing Kim Out

Kanye West
has figured out a new way to idolize baby mama Kim Kardashian -- he's enshrined her on his t-shirt.

The rapper was spotted in Seattle yesterday wearing the shirt with Kim's face on it -- shortly before kicking off his Yeezus tour -- and he couldn't help but smile.

Which raises the question ... would you wear a t-shirt with your S.O.'s face on it? Sound off in the comments.

Kim's Great Ass

1017-kim-kardashian-instagramIf you think Kanye West is proprietary about Kim Kardashian's ass, think again, because he clearly believes it's awesome and is glad she's sharing it with the world.

We're told his response when he saw Kim's Instagram pic was that he loves having a hot chick.

Kanye retweeted the link to the photo and wrote, "HEADING HOME NOW."  In case his message isn't clear ... it was put to us this way ... he's proud of it because it's his girl.

Kanye West -- into sharing.

Breaking Butt

1017-kim-kardashian-instagramKim Kardashian's gargantuan ass is back in working order ... and last night, she let the world know ... with a backside selfie on Instagram

It's the first butt-selfie Kim's taken since giving birth to Kanye West's baby North back in June.

Kim's been on a serious sexuality kick lately -- on the most recent episode of her reality show, she talked about wanting to pose NAKED asap ... saying, "As soon as I get in shape, the first thing I want to do is Playboy or some nude shoot. I just wanna walk down the street fully naked."

Looks ready to us.

Avoid LAX

Fly San Fran to Paris

EXCLUSIVE

0927-ffn-kim-kanye-sfo
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian just arrived at San Francisco International Airport, en route to Paris ... and they did exactly what we said they would do ... avoid the paparazzi at LAX.

Kim and Kanye took off from the Van Nuys Airport a few hours ago and landed at SFO.  They're transferring to a commercial flight that will take them nonstop to Paris.

As we first reported, Kanye has been advised by his reps NOT to fly out of LAX, because they don't want another confrontation with photogs while his criminal battery case is pending.

Problem is ... the reps didn't bank on photogs showing up at his house early this AM ... resulting in yet another confrontation.

The paparrazzi at SFO -- not ours -- also shot video of Kanye and Kim, and much like this morning ... they're clearly getting under Kanye's skin.



Also, note to all paps -- if nothing else, pronounce the guy's name right. It's KAHN-YAY.

UNDER CONSTRUCTION

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's $11 million love shack is still under construction -- it has been for months -- and Thursday they put some pressure on the contractors ... by personally inspecting the quality of their work.

K&K dodged piles of scrap lumber and plywood as they did a walking tour of the 10,000-square-foot Italian-style villa in Bel Air, CA ... making sure the builders didn't leave out any details... like the bowling alley.  Or the hair salon.  Or the gym.  Or the baby's nursery.

Hopefully the walls of the house are really, really thick ... 'cuz Kanye likes to yell.  And everybody knows ... if the baby don't sleep ... nobody sleeps.

Kim Kardashian
finally showed her face in public after birthing baby North West -- surfacing at an L.A. medical facility Wednesday -- and giving us a glimpse at her post pregnancy bod ... sorta.

These are the FIRST photos of Kim and Kanye West with their daughter since KK popped back in June, and everyone looks happy and healthy. Hell, even Yeezy was smiling as they walked into the doc's office ... with a nanny-assist, naturally.

No shot of North's face though ... she was fully covered in a car seat.

Mama K was all top secret too -- concealing her figure under a baggy button-down with another shirt tied around her waist and famous cheeks ... for extra coverage.

Hey, Kim knows her body is a cash cow -- and she ain't giving away the milk for free.
