The Kardashians and Jenners never seem to tire of a good birthday bash. Private islands, custom bounce houses, and epic cakes are just a few ways this family stays on top of the event game.

Things were no different when Kim Kardashian recently celebrated her son Psalm’s birthday with an extravagant Hulk-themed party. Guests were greeted by a giant wall full of Hulk Hands and a green balloon archway with hundreds of balloons next to signs that read “Psalm” and “Smash”.

As they made their way through the party, they found a huge statue of the green Marvel character, plus even more impressive touches, including a mirror that appeared to have been cracked by Hulk himself. 

Little Psalm celebrated his special occasion along with his siblings, North West (8), Saint (6) and Chicago (4), along with his cousins True (4), Penelope (9) and Dream (5) while proud mom Kim documented every detail.

The 41-year-old reality TV star shared plenty of photos and videos of Psalm’s big day to her Instagram Stories. One of them showed the tot rolling in on a purple-and-green electric four-wheeler as partygoers mixed up concoctions at a slime station and ate churros wrapped inside sleeves that had Psalm’s face Photoshopped on the Incredible Hulk’s body. 

Not exactly your everyday neighbourhood kiddies' party, right? 

But one person that was notably missing from the lavish celebrations was Psalm’s father, rapper Kanye West, who has legalled changed his name to Ye. 

The 44-year-old has been radio-silent on social media ever since Instagram imposed a 24-hour ban on him for sharing harassing posts in March. Fans have, however, been getting glimpses into his post-divorce life through his girlfriend Chaney Jones – and by the looks of it, the Follow God rapper snubbed his son’s birthday party for a romantic trip to Japan.

Just last week Chaney posted a pic of herself cuddling up to Ye as they stood together overlooking the tree-lined Omotesando avenue in Tokyo.

Eagle-eyed fans also spotted the rapper and his model girlfriend out and about exploring the city, including the streets of Shibuya.

A few days later, the pair seemingly returned stateside to surprise Chaney’s mom on her birthday, which happened right around the same time Psalm’s birthday celebrations were unfolding in Calabasas, California.

The 24-year-old model posted a video to social media with her parents. “Flew back to Miami to surprise my parents for my mom’s birthday,” she captioned the video, followed by a heart emoji.

Ye and Chaney were first rumoured to be dating after the pair were spotted together in early February while he was romantically linked to Uncut Gems actress Julia Fox.

They may only have been dating for a few short months but insiders claim things are serious between them, as Ye even tagged along to meet Chaney's parents on her whirlwind trip back ti her home last week.

As their relationship continues to unfold, here's what you need to know about Chaney Jones.

Chaney is a social media influencer and model and claims to be of European, French, German, West African, Nigerian and Ghanaian descent. She says that she’s never "had surgery on her face", but has admitted to having a Brazilian butt lift when she was 20.

Aside from her huge social media presence, she is also the COO of First State Behavioural Health, which offers counselling provided by trained behavioural professionals.

"I feel as though counselling and behavioural health treatment is a healthy action for everyone. Counselling can help everyone improve in their everyday life and I look forward to working with you," she says in her bio on the company website.

She's more than just a pretty face or Kim's look-alike.
