A lot of ink has been spilled trying to convince civilians that the stars are just like us. Then something like this happens: rap mogul Kanye West’s Lamborghini was hit by the electric gates leading to his girlfriend and reality TV show star Kim Kardashian’s Los Angeles area mansion. That is not something that happens to average people.
West was not driving the $750,000 car — a birthday gift from Kardashian — when it was pulled into her driveway. Instead, the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 was being delivered to Kardashian’s home after getting serviced. The driver pulled through the gates, but undoubtedly nervous about driving West’s luxury sports car, drove too slowly and the electric gates shut on the car. The vehicle was hit on both sides before the gates moved back and the car pulled into the driveway.
It’s unclear what damage was done to the Lamborghini, but even a scratch on a luxury automobile can be expensive to repair. According to TMZ, the repair shop quickly sent a car detailer to Kardashian’s house to assess the damage and see if the scratches could be buffed out.
