Kanye West and his daughter, North West, had an adorable lunch date at NOBU on Wednesday, and an onlooker said the rapper was “clearly very happy” to spend time with his daughter.
“Kanye was clearly very happy to be spending time with North. He couldn’t stop smiling and it was really sweet. Kanye listened intently to all her little stories. They kept whispering things to each other and it was really adorable to see them together,” a source said.
“He was very much the doting dad and hung on her every word. They seemed like any other father-daughter couple having a nice date and it was obvious they were very close. Kanye and North were seated in one of Nobu’s private rooms (along with what seemed like security) so they could enjoy a quiet meal. It was just a relaxing, nice time,” the source added.
Kanye West was spotted at the celebrity hangout in Malibu, California, wearing black sweatpants and a matching sweatshirt with the hoodie pulled over his head. Kanye’s outfit appeared to be an attempt to go unnoticed in public, but it did not work out for the famous rapper.
Meanwhile, North had no intention of hiding from the paparazzi. Kanye and Kim’s eldest child exited Nobu wearing a black T-shirt with bright purple and orange graphics and dark pants. North wore her black hair in adorable braids that reached her chest.
Kanye and his daughter’s lunch date appeared to be much-needed, as they had recently been separated by continents due to Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker’s wedding.
North accompanied her mother to the Italian wedding, but her siblings Saint, 6, Chicago, 4, and Psalm, 3, did not accompany her. Meanwhile, Kanye recently traveled to Japan and New York City with his model girlfriend Chaney Jones, 24, who resembles his ex-wife Kim.
