Wiped that smile off his face! Kanye West was caught smiling courtside at the Chicago Bulls vs. Cleveland Cavaliers semifinal game in Chicago on Sunday, May 10, until the rapper realized he was on camera.

A viral new Vine from the hilarious moment features West, 37, enjoying a light conversation with NBA legend and former Bulls player Scottie Pippen, whose wife Larsa is a close pal of Kim Kardashian's. The rapper grins briefly until he processes that a camera is pointed in his direction, and immediately wipes the smile off his face.


Replacing West's expression is an annoyed glance followed by a nonchalant look around the arena. The hilarious moment has garnered over 7 million plus loops on the social media site.

On Sunday night, North's dad also performed his new single "All Day" before the cheering crowd. Meanwhile, the rapper's wife Kim Kardashian was on another continent for Mother's Day, which prompted the rapper to do something incredibly romantic for his love.

Kardashian, 34, posted several photos from her special Mother's Day in Sao Paulo, Brazil, where she is promoting her new collection with C&A.

"I got to my room in Brazil and my amazing thoughtful husband had the sweetest note with a couple thousand roses covering my entire suite for Mothers Day!" the reality star gushed on Instagram. "I'm so sad I'm so far away on this day but happy we celebrated yesterday! I love you baby & North soooo much!!!"

Later, the rapper sent his wife a string quartet while she was dining in a local restaurant.
