Kanye West tweets touching tribute to Donda… then showers substitute mom Kris Jenner with expensive gifts on Mother’s Day
But it seems the Kardashian matriarch does much to fill the hole left in the rapper’s life by the death of his own mother, Donda.
In a heart-warming gesture, Kanye and fiancé Kim Kardashian showered 58-year-old Kris with designer gifts to mark Mother’s Day.
Touching: Kim’s fiance Kanye West paid a touching tribute to his mother Donda West, who died following plastic surgery complications in 2008

No expense was spared as the couple presented Kris with a Saint Laurent leather jacket and fancy Maison Martin Margiela purse.
‘And then there’s THIS!! What girl wouldn’t LOVE a little Saint Laurent and Maison Martin Margiela on Mothers Day?!’ wrote an obviously ebullient Kris.
‘Thank you @kimkardashian @kanyewest I love you both so much!!! #blessed.’
Kanye has confounded doubters with his warm relationship with Kris, publicly stating how much he enjoys being a part of a big family.
But while he made his soon to be mother-in-law very happy on Sunday, Kanye first made sure to remember his own much-missed mother.

The 36-year-old tweeted a simple image of the sky with the message ‘Hi Mom’.
Kanye was heartbroken when Donda died aged just 58 back in 2007, from complications caused by heart disease after undergoing intensive plastic surgery.
He called the death ‘like losing an arm and a leg and trying to walk through that’.
But Kanye also made sure to focus on the positives in his life.
