Kim Kardashian has reportedly been allowed to attend the Met Costume Gala Ball, but only because boyfriend Kanye West is attending, according to a new report.
Previously it was claimed the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star had been banned by Vogue editor in chief, the infamous Anna Wintour, but with the rapper taking to the stage, had to allow the reality TV queen to walk the red carpet.
"Kanye West and Kim Kardashian will both be attending the Met Gala in NYC on May 6," an insider told Life & Style, "because Kanye is performing he was allowed to invite her."

The Met Ball is one of the biggest nights in the showbiz calendar, even rivalling the Oscars, with the hottest stars from music, TV, film and fashion walking the red carpet. Kristen Stewart, Beyonce, Justin Timberlake, Rihanna and Gwyneth Paltrow just some of the names to grace the hottest red carpet of the year.
But last year Kim didn't get anywhere near the red carpet, with insiders claiming it was down to Anna Wintour to put her foot down over the star's attendance.
“Anna hates Kim,” a source told RadarOnline last year. “Why would she be invited to the event? It is all the biggest stars in the world and Kim doesn’t fit that bill at all.”
“The Met Gala is $25,000 a ticket, but Kim can’t even buy her way in, Anna Wintour does NOT want her there!” the insider went on. “Kim and her camp will deny that she wasn’t invited by saying that she had business in L.A., but that is a lie."
They added: “She would of done anything to be there with all the A-listers.”
Meanwhile a source close to the Kardashians has played down the latest reports to EntertainmentWise, saying "honestly nothing has been confirmed. Right now she’s out of the country and also in production."
Well we can't wait to see all the stars on the red carpet, whether Kim is there or not.
