The Stronger singer snubbed the event for the first time in three-years

It’s fair to say the Kardashians completely killed it at the Met Gala this year.

While Kylie and Kendall Jenner showed off there flawless figures in a pair of equally fabulous sheer gowns, Kim Kardashian surprised and wowed fans in equal measures with her simple but amazing, white dress.

But there was one thing missing from Kim’s red carpet appearance – and that was hubby, Kanye West.

And while it had previously been confirmed that Kanye wouldn’t attend Anna Wintour‘s A-List event for the first time in three years, reports are now emerging as to the reason why he decided to dramatically snub the Gala and stay in LA.

Reports suggest that the dad-of-two chose to stay at home with his young children – North, 3, and one-year-old Saint – after he was left fuming with Kim’s antics on her girls holiday with sister, Kourtney Kardashian.

If you happened to miss the Kim K bum drama – un-airbrushed snaps of the Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s star having a load of fun on a beach in Mexico emerged last week which happened to show a lil bit of cellulite (like most normal women).

But according to The Sun, these pics didn’t go down too well with Kanye as a source claims: ‘Kanye has helped turn Kim into a fashion icon and he feels those pictures with Kourtney have made her look cheap, damaging her brand.

‘He’s angry with Kourtney for seemingly leading her on, as she clearly revelled in turning their session into a photoshoot. Their behaviour completely detracted from Kim’s current standing in the industry.’

However, an alternative insider told People magazine that Kanye is still taking time out from the spotlight after being admitted to hospital last year, saying: ‘It had nothing to do with the Met Gala. It was more about the stress and pressure of a big red carpet. He just wasn’t quite there yet. Kanye has been doing okay. He’s made a lot of good progress and is in a much better place.’

Before adding: ‘He’s still very much enjoying his time off from public events. He’ll be staying back in LA with their kids. Everything is great with him and Kim and he’s supportive of her going solo.’

With Kanye opting for a quiet night in, Kim, Kendall and Kylie were left to party the night away inside the exclusive venue along with famous pals including Cara Delevingne, Rihanna and pregnant, Serena Williams.

Let’s hope Kimye can be reunited on the red carpet at next year’s show!
