Kanye West has sparked speculation that he abruptly cancelled his 'Yeezus' tour shows so he could propose to girlfriend Kim Kardashian on her birthday last night, and fans aren't too pleased with the apparent “coincidence,” taking to Twitter to speculate if it is indeed the reason for the postponement.
The 'Black Skinhead' rapper disappointed thousands of fans over the weekend when it was announced that his North American tour to support his latest album 'Yeezus,' had been cancelled after just one show in Seattle on Saturday, with the star offering little in the form of an explanation only citing “unforeseen circumstances.”

Kanye, 36, was expected to perform shows in San Jose, Las Vegas and Los Angeles over the coming days however, it was revealed that the tour had been postponed until Halloween night (October 31) when it will resume.
While it was rumoured that the cancellation was due to a truck filled with expensive equipment getting stolen while outside the Seattle venue, however, Kanye's sudden engagement to Kim has caused fans to think otherwise E! News reports that Kanye got down on one knee at a baseball stadium on her 33rd birthday yesterday in front of a small group of the reality star's friends and presented her with a blinging diamond ring.
The timing of the postponement and the engagement has led fans to believe that Kanye has sacrificed his tour for his personal life, and they aren't happy! @anthonycsantana tweeted: “Oh my god Kanye is really stopping his tour cause of the proposal,” while @taylersawchuk speculated: “How convenient that it's Kim Kardashian's birthday the day after Kanye cancels his concert in Van.”
Sharing a similar train of thought, @chelsrog chimed in: “Kanye West cancels his show last night and today is Kim's birthday... coincidence??” @LionessSabrina joked: “Oh Jesus, Kim & Kanye are now engaged. The marriage will last as long as Kanyes tour,” while @brdprt said: “I swear to god if kanye post poned the tour to halloween to proposed to kim. i will not attend that wedding.”
