Kanye West becomes Kanye wet after diving into lake at Armenian show

Kanye West's lakeside gig in Armenia's capital was stopped by police on Sunday night (12Apr15) after the rapper went for a splash.

The show at Swan Lake in Yerevan, which was being livestreamed on YouTube, came to an abrupt shortly after West jumped offstage and into the shallow water while performing Good Life.


Fans followed him and local police offices quickly ended the gig, after escorting a drenched but happy Kanye back to the makeshift stage and to safety. West left the scene as his Armenian fans chanted 'Kanye'.


The rap star is in Armenia with his wife Kim Kardashian, their daughter North and sister-in-law Khloe Kardashian. The country is the Kardashian's ancestral home and the sisters have been meeting with dignitaries and visiting cultural and historic sites ahead of the upcoming 100th anniversary of the Armenian genocide.
