It’s not the first time that Kanye, also known as Ye, has treated a partner to a Birkin bag – produced by luxury brand Hermès – as he is believed to have bought one for Julia too.
The Grammy Award winner is said to have bought a number of the handbags for Julia and her friends for her birthday last month – prior to reports that they had separated.
Following the break-up, she has continued to attract attention and has even teased that she’s been working on her first book, which she discussed at a party for the Oscars.
