Kanye West Used His Only Phone Call in Jail to Order Chinese Takeout

By Kevin Rutherford

Keeping Up with the Kardashians episodes are occasionally outlets for new life moments involving Kanye West, given his marriage to Kim Kardashian earlier this year. A recent episode of the reality show didn’t disappoint, with a revelation both old and new coming out about the rapper.

It involves Chinese takeout, something that’s not exactly a newly discovered facet of West’s life; dude loves Chinese takeout. A lot.

However, it was revealed in the clip that Chinese food was a big part of the rapper’s night in jail in 2008.

Kardashian tells the story of the time West destroyed a paparazzo’s camera six years ago and was later arrested and sent to jail (via Consequence of Sound).

West got one phone call when he was sent to jail overnight for the offense, and instead of reaching out to a friend or family member, he did what any Chinese food-loving rapper would do: he ordered Chinese takeout from L.A. establishment Mr. Chow to be brought to him while he waited out everything in jail.

West eventually received community service for the incident.
