Following the shock which greeted Kim Kardashian‘s video of she and Kanye West boarding a 747 private jet, it has been revealed the reality star knows the private 747 plane they took to Tokyo was “unnecessary,” PEOPLE reports.
However, she isn’t apologizing for the extravagance.
The couple faced backlash on social media after Kardashian showed off the massive—and nearly empty—interior of the commercial-size airliner on her Instagram stories.
“No big deal, just taking a private 747,” Kardashian said in the series of videos, in which she filmed West, 41, walking up to the “double decker” plane. “This is how he does it now. Only 747s, private. I’ve never even heard of this, but whatever.”

The insider says Kardashian-West accompanied West to Japan for an “artistic trip.”
He feels very inspired and creative at the moment, so she wants to be supportive,” the source says. “She is aware of the 747 backlash—it wasn’t her idea. And again, she is trying to be supportive of Kanye. She realize it’s seen as something unnecessary and extravagant, but she isn’t making any excuses. They have a different lifestyle and she doesn’t expect other people to understand.”
