Kanye West born June 8, 1977, in Atlanta, Georgia. Kanye West and his mother, Donda West, relocated to Chicago, Illinois, when Kanye West was 3, following his parents’ divorce. Kanye West got his music career start as a producer.

Jared Kushner, former senior advisor to ex-US President Donald Trump, was spotted dining at a Miami, Florida, restaurant with hip-hop star Kanye West, according to a report released by TMZ on Friday.

The billionaire rapper, 44, and the former White House senior adviser, 40, were photographed together as a masked employee let them out of the exit of the Italian celebrity hotspot Carbone in Miami Beach.

Old pals Kanye West and Jared Kushner met up for what appeared to be a power dinner in Miami on Thursday night, but a source told  that business was off the table.

“It was a purely private dinner,” the insider exclusively told us. “No business agenda.”

West has had a longtime friendship with Kushner as well as Trump and has publicly expressed support for the former president, occasionally sporting a "Make America Great Again" hat, according to the report.

West and Kushner maintained contact "almost daily" since the rapper declared he was running for president in a July 2020 tweet, Forbes noted.

West and his wife Kim Kardashian West once visited Kushner and Trump at the White House to discuss Kardashian West's ideas regarding sentencing reform, according to Forbes. The publication also referred to a previous interview with West, in which he said "I love Jared . . . that’s my boy, you know?"

As a senior advisor to the president, Kushner played a central role in the Trump Administration's Middle East policy, notably as an architect of the Abraham Accords, a diplomatic normalization agreement between the US, Israel, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain.

West is a highly influential celebrity who has achieved international fame perhaps as much for his eccentric personality as his innovative, modern songwriting and production and aggressive rap style, which have won him 22 Grammy Awards over his two-decade-long career, according to The Independent.

A publicist who once worked for West was accused of attempting to pressure a Georgia election worker into falsely implicating herself in Trump's disproven allegations of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 Presidential Election in a meeting arranged by Trump administration officials, Reuters reported earlier this year. The news organization added comments from a West spokesperson saying the publicist was not associated with West at the time.

West wore a bright highlighter-yellow hoodie for the outing, while Kushner kept his look more subdued with a long-sleeve black sweater.

Carbone appears to be a favorite dining spot for West — who now goes by Ye. He took new fling Julia Fox to the Miami branch for their first date on New Year’s Day, and the couple then dined at the New York location for their first rendezvous in the Big Apple.

However, it appears that the “Heartless” rapper left his new lady behind for his most recent trip down south. On Wednesday, a source told us that Fox was photographed outside of West’s hotel in NYC just as West jetted off to catch a private flight.

The Yeezy CEO apparently had a boys’ night in mind for his meetup with Kushner, as the investor’s wife, Ivanka Trump, also was not present for the dinner Thursday.

Kushner previously revealed that he and West actually go way back.

After the pair got together in Telluride, Colo., in August 2020, Kushner shared that he’s been friends with the “Jesus Walks” rapper for more than a decade.

“Unlike others, I’m able to keep friendships across the aisle,” he told at the time.

Kushner also gave a bit of insight into their friendship at the time, sharing that while they had discussed policy a bit, they also talked about a book on empowering black Americans that the music mogul had sent him.

“Kanye sent me a book about a month ago called ‘PowerNomics‘ … I read the book,” the real estate developer said. “It was absolutely phenomenal, it actually incorporated a lot of the things that President Trump has been doing.”

West has also been on friendly terms with Kushner’s father-in-law, Donald Trump, and even received a lot of heat for wearing the former POTUS’ signature “Make America Great Again” hat.
