Did Kim Kardashian and Kanye West choose Saint West because they assumed it would be available professionally, and South West was already taken by an airline? Maybe, but they ran into a bit of a pickle when they found out there was a Canadian rapper named Saint West. But now, the Canadian rapper known as Saint West is retiring, and professionally giving up the name Saint West.
According to the Inquisitr, Kim Kardashian is happy that Saint West has now been born, as the pregnancy was a rough one, and it’s likely that she won’t be able to have any more children. The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star had preeclampsia, high blood pressure, and then developed gestational diabetes. Her placenta had an abnormal amount of fluid, and it complicated Saint West’s delivery.
TMZ is reporting that Kim Kardashian’s Saint West is now the only official Saint West in the biz.
“TMZ contacted the guy, who’s now going by his government name — Lindon McIntyre — to find out if he was planned to make a stink about Kim and Kanye’s spawn biting his name, especially on Twitter.”
The man formerly known as Saint West is actually a plumber who loves ballroom dancing. Go figure.
The Business Standard is reporting that Kimye’s Saint West is now the only Saint West in town.
“Kim Kardashian and Kanye West don’t have to worry about their son’s name anymore as he is the only Saint West in the show biz.”
Lindon McIntyre has decided to leave the rapper life behind, and dedicate himself to plumbing, and using his given name.
MetroUK first covered the story, and divulged that at that time, Saint West was a rapper from Vancouver. He went onto Twitter and posted that rap music had ruined his life.
“But new parents Kim Kardashian and Kanye West may be disappointed to find out that the name for their newborn son isn’t as original as they thought it was.”
And the former Saint West is not just a wannabe, he has some tracks.
“Saint West is a musician from Vancouver, whose tracks include Saint Style, Handle Business and Day Dreamn (yes, that’s how it’s spelt).”
But the Canadian rapper hasn’t really been tipping his toe into the rapper game since 2011, so maybe passing the baton to baby Saint West was just kismet.
” ‘Rap music ruined my life,’ he once tweeted, which could well be baby Saint talking in 18 years time.”
According to the Vine, Saint West, now McIntyre, was forced into an early retirement by the Kardashian machine, but it seems more likely that the former Saint was ready to put his rapping days behind him.
“After TMZ asked the rapper if he was going to do something about the name-thievery he replied with a video saying he was going to retire; while warning the bub: ‘Don’t become a rapper.’ “
And on top of it all, McIntyre immediately then lost his Twitter handle.
“Poor Ex-Saint West already lost his twitter handle @SAINTWEST__ to someone opening an account for lil Yeezy junior. This guy can’t catch a f***ing break.”
Do you think Saint West the rapper voluntarily gave up his name to baby Saint West for entertainment industry purposes, or was he influenced by the Kardashians?
