Daddy's gotta shop! Sans Kim Kardashian or their baby daughter North West, Kanye West resurfaced solo in Beverly Hills on Monday, July 8. The "Black Skinhead" rapper, 35, wore head-to-toe sweats (and high-top orange kicks) for a trip to the local Barney's, and was spotted carrying a bag from the high-end department store. Employees at the store confirmed to Us that the new dad "bought a bunch of clothes" in men's department the 4th floor, including numerous items in leather.
West and Kardashian, 32, have been holed up with baby Nori, 3 weeks, at her mom Kris Jenner's L.A. home while renovations continue on their own home -- but the talked-about trio left the premises over the holiday weekend for a family July 4th bash at Bruce Jenner's Malibu pad.
It was the little one's first known outing since she left Cedars-Sinai Medical Center June 21 following her premature birth. Even with his retail obsession intact, West has transformed since his daughter's arrival. "He doesn't leave North for more than an hour," one source told Us. Added another: "Kanye holds the baby all the time."
One place where he draws the line? "He's not changing diapers," one pal said.
