Everyone in the media is trying to find out how Kanye West pulled off the biggest surprise of the year — his engagement to Kim Kardashian Monday night.
RumorFix has pieced together details with the help of party guest and Girls Gone Wild founder Joe Francis.
Joe says only 50 people witnessed the surprise under the baseball marque that read, “Pleease Marry Meee!!!”
“A lot of people didn’t make it,” he told us. “They kept it such a secret — you had to get there quickly.” His girlfriend, Abbey Wilson, couldn’t even make it.
Estranged spouses Lamar Odom and Bruce Jenner were not there either. Joe says “Lamar was invited,” and he’s sure that Bruce was too, “because he and Kris are really, really good friends.”
The guests were told three days before to “Save The Date,” for a “surprise birthday party for Kim.”
Then Joe says, Kanye flew people in to San Francisco via private jet, he even provided car service and hotels for everyone! “It was over the top,” says Joe, who is known for his extravagant and opulent lifestyle. “It was five star all the way around. There wasn’t an ounce of cheese — it was very, very well done.”
“I think it’s Kanye’s style to be classy and stylish and over-the-top exciting — like his music,” Joe says.
And no one saw it coming when Kanye got on his knee and asked Kim to marry him.
“I sat next to Kourtney [Kardashian] and she gasped and said ‘Oh My God,” Joe adds only Kris Jenner knew about the surprise because Kanye asked for Kris’ permission beforehand.
