Hovvy Hov made a point to not run into the lovebirds earlier this week at Melo’s appreciation party:
A source tells us Kanye and Kim, who arrived hand-in-hand, had two seats “saved for them” across the table from Melo and his wife, Kim’s good friend Lala Anthony . Among the other VIPs seated at the 40-person table were producer Swizz Beats , Knick Amar’e Stoudemire and Eugene Remm and Mark Birnbaum , whose EMM Group owns Catch. They toasted the ballplayer in front of the entire dining room.
“Tonight, we’re celebrating Carmelo … just because,” said Beats. “Because he’s a great man.” Lala also toasted her her husband, boasting that the Miami Heat — the Knicks’ likely opponent in the first round of the NBA playoffs — “aren’t ready for us.”
Without cameras following their every move, West and Kardashian stayed at the West 13th St. hotspot until after midnight when they called it a night. As a result, West missed his good buddy Jay-Z , who partied with the Anthonys, Stoudemire, Beats, Diddy and Jermaine Dupri upstairs at Catch Roof.
Hmmmm….sounds a lil fishy to us! Thoughts?
