Kanye West took to his Twitter account to share with fans the thoughtful Father's Day gift girlfriend Kim Kardashian gave to him, a pair of signed Apple computer mice.
According to New York Daily News, Kardashian gave her boyfriend a pair of signed computer mice by Apple co-founders' Steve Wozniak and the late Steve Jobs.
"I signed this mouse right in front of Kanye, after chatting and joking with him for an hour or two, right in the hospital where Kim had given birth," Wozniak said of meeting the superstar couple and their bundle of joy, North West.
"I included a couple of other gifts,” Wozniak added. “Kim went as far as she could to do the best things she could think of for Kanye and I'm impressed with her."
West must have been honored to receive the gift, having recently compared himself to Jobs in an interview promoting his new album, Yeezus.
"I think what Kanye West is going to mean is something similar to what Steve Jobs means," West said, speaking in third person. "I am undoubtedly, you know, Steve of internet, downtown, fashion, culture. Period. By a long jump. I will be the leader of a company that ends up being worth billions of dollars, because I got the answers. I understand culture. I am the nucleus."
Though West was moved enough to publish a photo of Kardashian's thoughtful gift, he should not expect any presents from friend T-Pain, who says he will not be sending baby North West or the new parents any presents.
The “Buy U a Drank” rapper told Us Weekly at The Kevin Hart Experience premiere that he would not be sending West’s new daughter a present because he cannot afford something the “Mercy” rapper would appreciate.
"Kanye is much richer than me so I'm not even going to try [getting him and Kim Kardashian a gift]," T-Pain said. “Kanye has no couth when it comes to things like that, so when you bring him something, he'd be like, 'What the f--k is this?' You don't want to be that person because he'll make a big scene about that. You don't want that."
T-Pain says that baby North will likely be showered with plenty of glitzy gifts from her proud father. "Some golden shoes, some golden booties," T-Pain joked of West’s taste in baby clothes before adding he thinks that the “I am a God” singer will make a “great” father, including while on tour.
“If he has the child around enough -- and I don't know how that works with flights and stuff -- but he'll figure it out."
