Ranting rapper Kanye West secretly escorted reality TV vixen Kim Kardashian to the Oklahoma City home of his 97-year-old grandfather — and the old man was bowled over by her curvaceous beauty, but skeptical on the subject of marriage.
“She is beautiful — and she’s just as sweet as she is beautiful — and that’s what I liked about her!” said Portwood Williams Sr., the wizened-but-wise grandad who has long been a tower of strength for West.
“She was just down to earth, she’s rich, and those kinds of people, they’ve got everything,” added Williams, a veteran of Oklahoma’s civil rights sit-ins of the 1950s who helped desegregate lunch counters.
But the retired furniture refinisher also said in an exclusive interview he “couldn’t care less” if West weds the visibly pregnant Kim, expecting her first child this July.
Williams knows all about long-term nuptials — his own marriage lasted 72 years, until the death of wife Lucille five years ago. And he knows all about short-term unions — like the 72 days Kim spent with NBA star Kris Humphries before filing for divorce.
“Maybe they could have a successful marriage, but I’m not going to spend time worrying if they’re going to make it or not,” Williams said.
But if Kayne ever gets around to popping the question, would he go? “No, I don’t do weddings,” he quipped. “I don’t like weddings… You spend a lot of money, then in a few weeks, you’re separated!”Williams’ reflections came before the outspoken rapper launched his lyrical – and profanity-filled – rant on Saturday in London against targets ranging from the Grammy Awards to President Obama.
In foul-mouthed form, halfway into the performance of his song “Clique,” he blasted the Jay-Z-Justin Timberlake collaboration, “Suit & Tie,” rapping, ” And I got love for Hov but I ain’t f—ing with that ‘Suit & Tie.’”
He also skewered the rap industry as superficial, thanks to the Grammys, and then dissed Obama, who last year had branded him a “jackass,” in unprintable fashion, saying, “I don’t give a f— what the President say.”
