Kanye West Gave Kim Kardashian A Nude Portrait Of Herself As A Wedding Gift (REPORT) (UPDATE)

Here's What Kanye Reportedly Gave Kim As A Wedding Gift

UPDATE: Sources close to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West tell TMZ that neither of them know anything about West's supposed wedding gift. According to the source, no painting was ever commissioned, nor does Kardashian want one.

Bambi's manager still claims that West ordered the paining and that the couple should be receiving the painting any day now.

If this sounds like a familiar story, perhaps you're thinking of the time Monica Warhol -- an artist who claims to be a cousin of the late Andy Warhol -- claimed West hired her to paint Kardashian's portrait. Kardashian's camp also denied that any painting had been commissioned.

PREVIOUSLY: Remember that large Hermès Birkin bag that Kanye West gave Kim Kardashian for Christmas last year? The one that was hand-painted with naked ladies on it? It's hard to forget a bag like that (though Kardashian has only taken it with her on one public outing). Well, West may have topped himself when it comes to gifts of questionable taste.

The Mirror reports that the 36-year-old rapper commissioned street artist Bambi (who has been called "the female Bansky") to paint a topless portrait of his new wife wearing just g-string and Louboutin heels. It's titled "Perfect Bitch."

Bambi's agent and manager Leonard Villa told The Mirror that West requested "something regal but typically Kim," and intends to hang the painting in the couple's bedroom.

It's somewhat fitting since West reportedly called Kardashian the "ideal art" and the "ideal celebrity" during his 20-minute wedding speech on May 24.

And if West really did give this portrait to his new bride, we'd like to point out it still wouldn't be the most over-the-top rumor we've heard about what went down at their wedding. Request for comment made to Kardashian's rep has yet to be returned at this time, but we leave you with another reminder of West's Christmas gift, and maybe the idea he would give her such a portrait is suddenly not so far-fetched.
