IT seems mega-rich rapper Kanye West could not wait to get out of Doncaster - splashing out £8,000 to flee the town to Birmingham for his latest gig.

Rather than opting for a trip down the M18 and M1 for the 84-mile journey, the College Drop-out hip-hop artist used a private jet and an S-Class Mercedes for the latest leg of his Watch The Throne tour with Jay-Z, reports have said.

Despite the option of saving himself around £7,955 by getting a train ticket, the 35-year-old American opted for the slightly more lavish way to travel by jet and a chauffeur-driven luxury motor.

After leaving Robin Hood Airport and touching down in Birmingham, Kim Kardashian’s current squeeze reportedly then pulled up at the city’s five-star Hyatt hotel where he spent further thousands on treating his US reality TV show girlfriend.
