Kanye West bizarrely has beard shaved in middle of a restaurant on date with Julia Fox

Kanye West bizarrely had his beard shaved in the middle of a restaurant while on a date with his new girlfriend Julia Fox.

The rapper, 44, headed out to dine at upscale restaurant Craig’s in West Hollywood - which is popular with celebrities - on Monday night, with model and actress Julia in tow.

The hot new couple were joined by former American footballer player Antonio Brown, who documented Kanye’s unusual decision to have an impromptu grooming session while eating at the restaurant.

The ex-Tampa Bay Buccaneers player shared a video of the Stronger hitmaker getting his goatee trimmed while in one of the back rooms of the exclusive spot.

Kanye can be seen sat on a chair wearing an all-black ensemble, finished off with huge black rubber boots, as he stares blankly at the camera with sunglasses covering his eyes.

The barber works quickly as Kanye, who was covered in a black cape to prevent hair getting on his designer clothes, remains unresponsive, and he later emerges looking fresh faced as he posed for pictures in the restaurant.

While sportsman Antonio didn’t reveal where Kanye was getting his beard trimmed, washing dishes and chatter from employees could be heard in the video, suggesting it was in one of the back rooms of the restaurant.

Kanye posed alongside Antonio for a picture shared on the former footballer player, as he captioned the snap: “Ye + AB = SB.”

The duo were then seen laughing and talking with Fashion Nova founder Richard Saghian, and later, the rapper stopped to sign autographs for the huge crowd of fans waiting outside the restaurant.

Kanye was with Uncut Gems star Julia as they celebrated the release of his video for his new track Heaven And Hell, which is the latest single from his album Donda.

The new couple have been enjoying a whirlwind romance since meeting on New Year’s Eve, and they spent a few days in Miami, being spotted at the Italian restaurant Carbone, which was a favourite of his estranged wife Kim Kardashian.

They then headed to New York, and attended a play on Broadway before heading to Carbone’s restaurant in the city.

Reality star and billionaire beauty mogul Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from Kanye early last year, and has recently embarked on a new romance with Saturday Night Live funnyman Pete Davidson.

The couple confirmed their romance in November, and jetted off to the Bahamas earlier this month.
