Kanye’s granddaddy had a marriage that lasted 72 years, but he’s not sure KimYe was build to last.
Via NYDailyNews reports:
Ranting rapper Kanye West secretly escorted reality TV vixen Kim Kardashian to the Oklahoma City home of his 97-year-old grandfather — and the old man was bowled over by her curvaceous beauty, but skeptical on the subject of marriage.
“She is beautiful — and she’s just as sweet as she is beautiful — and that’s what I liked about her!” said Portwood Williams Sr., the wizened-but-wise grandad who has long been a tower of strength for West.
“She was just down to earth, she’s rich, and those kinds of people, they’ve got everything,” added Williams, a veteran of Oklahoma’s civil rights sit-ins of the 1950s who helped desegregate lunch counters.
But the retired furniture refinisher also said in an exclusive interview he “couldn’t care less” if West weds the visibly pregnant Kim, expecting her first child this July.
Williams knows all about long-term nuptials — his own marriage lasted 72 years, until the death of wife Lucille five years ago. And he knows all about short-term unions — like the 72 days Kim spent with NBA star Kris Humphries before filing for divorce.
“They didn’t make it,” he joked.
That pessimistic view of modern marriage led him to conclude — after five hours in which Kim charmed him last autumn — that the pair should be in no rush to tie the proverbial knot.
“Maybe they could have a successful marriage, but I’m not going to spend time worrying if they’re going to make it or not,” Williams said.
But if Kayne ever gets around to popping the question, would he go? “No, I don’t do weddings,” he quipped. “I don’t like weddings… You spend a lot of money, then in a few weeks, you’re separated!”
This guy knows what he’s talking bout. Listen to your grandaddy Kanye!
