How Much Did Kanye West Spend on Kim Kardashian’s Engagement?
Kanye went all out to ask for his baby mama's hand, surprising her in front of 50 family members and friends in a private event at San Francisco's AT&T Stadium last night (Oct. 21). The bill for the big romantic gesture? About $6,245,000!
Some $6 million of that reportedly went to the bride-to-be's massive 15-carat ring, but the night's other treats cost a pretty penny as well. The rapper rented out the ballpark for $200,000, projecting his proposal on its Jumbotron. The 50-piece orchestra that accompanied Kanye's bending on one knee can be bought for $5,000 (at the normal rate of $100 per musician per hour).
Additional reported costs include $25,000 for the post-engagement fireworks display and $15,000 for the private jet to take Kimye to the Bay area.
But guests say the expense was worth it. "It was magical," a source tells Us Weekly. "It was the most romantic thing ever -- the ultimate surprise!"
Besides, Kim said yes!
