Go Inside Kim Kardashian's Big Bahamas Bash for Kanye West's 40th Birthday (Despite the Social Media Blackout)
No work and all play.
In the great tradition of members surrounding the Kardashian-Jenner clan (consider Kylie Jenner's over-the-top 19th birthday in the Bahamas with an all-star squad), Kim Kardashian just went all out for Kanye West's island destination 40th birthday party.
Kim flew a whole squad of friends and family — naturally — to the Bahamas to celebrate Kanye's big 4-0... which is technically today: June 8.
According to a source close to the couple, they "had a great time on vacation in Baker's Bay [on the island of Great Guana Cay in the Bahamas]," ET reports. Specifically, E! News reports the family spent four full days at Baker's Bay Golf and Ocean Club, where they reportedly rented a villa home on the grounds.
Also according to the source in ET, "They spent six days at a private home and were able to go totally off the map."
And going off the map from time to time is among Kim's publicly stated new priorities, following the Paris robbery.
The source told ET the trip involved "no work or social media" for the parents of two — just family time, pool time, and relaxation. In the spirit of both true relaxation, and personal protection of both physical and emotional varieties, the family asked for a social media blackout. (Recall that Kanye, too, had a tumultuous last year including psychiatric hospitalization.)
But Kim did share a couple of isolated snaps on social media, including a shot with her kids on a private plane.
But more on their lodgings: The couple took over the home of Mike Meldman, according to the ET report. He's the third owner of Casamigos Tequila, along with Rande Gerber and new-twin-dad George Clooney — and that certainly explains why sparse details available from the trip always seemed to include tequila... and by that particular brand name.
Kim and sister Kourtney have both stayed at the home before.
