Meanwhile, his girlfriend played by Lohan is trying to hide an affair from her past, leading to intense situations.

Kanye West wants to buy Elvis Presley’s Graceland home for Kim Kardashian
The home, a designated national landmark, is currently owned by Elvis Presley’s daughter, Lisa Marie Presley. The Star quotes an anonymous source close to Kardashian as saying, There have been constant whispers that its due to go on the market, as long as it stays open to the public and as a place for Elvis fans to visit. Kanye is really excited about the possibility of owning it. He thinks it would be really cool if he, Kim and baby Nori lived there, at least some of the time. In May, CORE Media Group, which owns Elvis Presley Enterprises, announced it was seeking $200 million in a deal to sell the operation that oversees tours of Graceland and controls licensing, merchandising and music publishing for the King of Rock and Roll, along with television, film, video and Internet projects in the United States and worldwide. The deal would also include Muhammad Ali Enterprises.
Kanye West performs surprise version of ‘New Slaves’ for moshing LA crowd – watch
The Sun, a paper more virtuous as a makeshift coaster than as a news source, writes amazingly that Kanye West, eager to share his taste in fashion with the one-week-old heir to the British throne, has shipped Prince George of Cambridge “mini versions of Kanye’s [clothing], including skinny jeans and hoodies.” (!) Regarding whether royal protocol requires William and Kate to acknowledge this gift of tiny streetwear, an insider tells The Sun, “It depends if the Cambridges want to dress him in it.” Some might interpret this report as meaning that Kanye West specially produced miniature versions of the capsule collection he co-designed recently with A.P.C. , but we prefer envisioning the rapper pulling pieces from his own closet and requesting that they be duplicated in smaller sizes for the future king. In a Kanye West kind of way, this gift would be really sweet. (Alternative theory: Kanye caught wind of the fact that Duchess Kate is planning to dress George in 19th-century hand-me-down gowns and vowed to get him some more current clothing, stat.) As long as this is not the first step in a master, 30-year plan to woo Prince George into marrying North West one day, we support Kanye and Prince George’s Brotherhood of the Traveling Skinny Jeans.

He thinks it would be really cool if he, Kim and baby Nori [North’s nickname] lived there, at least some of the time.” The source also claimed that Kanye hopes that restoring Graceland will boost his reputation, adding: “Kanye has always been intrigued by Elvis, especially his influence in bringing blues and gospel music to the masses. Kanye thinks owning Graceland and restoring it to its former glory would cement his place in showbiz history.” Kanye West released his new album ‘Yeezus’ in June of this year.
