The sight of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West on the Met Gala red carpet has long been something we've looked forward to each year but it seems we won't get that opportunity tonight as Kanye West is reportedly skipping this year's ceremony

A source close to the couple told People that instead, Kanye will spend the night at home with the pair's children, North and Saint. "Kim will be going solo. [Kanye]'s still very much enjoying his time off from public events. He'll be staying back in L.A. with their kids. Everything is great with him and Kim and he's supportive of her going solo."

It's been a turbulent few months for the West family with Kanye being hospitalised for exhaustion following Kim's robbery in Paris back in October of last year. 

Cosmopolitan US reports that the rapper's absence at the event could also have something to do with his attire last year with rumours swirling that his choice of ripped denim on the red carpet did not go over well with the Gala's chair, Anna Wintour. 

Kim has enjoyed a triumphant return to the spotlight after her self-imposed hiatus following the robbery, and will undoubtedly pull out all the stops for this year's carpet. Her family is rumoured to be attending also but will reportedly all walk the carpet solo. 

Not long to go now...
