If you’ve ever seen the movie The Terminal starring Tom Hanks, you’ll probably have a good idea of how Kanye West is potentially living these days. Reports indicate that the rapper is currently living out of Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium. This after holding a listening party for fans of his new album “Donda.” The listening party took place on Thursday and the album was set to drop on Friday. However, the rapper decided to halt the release. Now rumor has it that he’s working out of the stadium to get the album finished.
Where Are The Rumors Coming From?
Currently, we are not in a position to confirm or deny that Kanye West is living at the stadium. However, a source potentially from the Kanye camp told the Associated Press that this was the case. According to the news outlet, the source asked to remain anonymous. No one from Kanye’s camp has confirmed or denied the story. At this point, the album hasn’t been released. There’s not a ton of clarity on that side of things either! Why he wouldn’t just head to a studio in the Atlanta area though to finish it out is anyone’s guess.
Why The Rumors Started
Obviously, when the album didn’t drop on Friday as expected, rumors started surfacing about why he was holding up the release. After all, he had already had the listening party, so originally no one probably thought many tweaks were going to be made to the album. The story of Kanye living out of the venue began to gain more traction after he was spotted at an Atlanta United soccer game held at the same stadium. Maybe the fans got too loud and didn’t allow him to get to work. The 2-hour game was a perfect break from his work on the album.

Overpriced Concessions At The Listening Party
Thursday night at his listening party, the stars came out to see him perform. Those in attendance included Shaquille O’Neal, CeeLo Green, and Big Boi. As well as former wife Kim Kardashian and their kids. That lineup probably didn’t have a ton of problems ponying up some cash for food and drinks at the listening party. The common folks in attendance, though, probably were not happy with the prices. A 65 dollar snack basket? 35 dollar kettle corn? You had to put down 40 dollars for a hot dog!

No Irina In Sight
As we mentioned, Kanye’s former wife, Kim Kardashian, and their kids were in attendance. The person who we didn’t see picking up a 40 dollar hot dog was Irina Shayk. The model who recently went on a vacation with Kanye pretty much hasn’t been seen with him since. Maybe she just doesn’t want to confront Kim K! In any case, whether Kanye is at the venue or not his fans are still waiting for the album to be officially released.
