Kim and Kanye were noticeably MIA at little sis Kylie Jenner’s Sweet 16 on Saturday night…but the new parents had good reason! Yeezy’s grandfather just passed away, and the pair had to jet out to Oklahoma (along with baby North) for the funeral services.
Portwood Williams, Kanye’s late mother’s dad, died August 10th at the age of 97. This is the man that met Kim earlier this year, and even told the Daily News, “She is beautiful, and she’s just as sweet as she is beautiful, and that’s what I liked about her!”
He was buried during a private service at Arlington Memorial Cemetery in Oklahoma City.
