Kanye West, who has legally changed his name to Ye, wears prosthetic Caucasian mask

Kanye West debuted yet another freaky face mask while jetting into New York City on Monday.

The rapper, 44, who has legally changed his name to Ye, was spotted at JFK Airport wearing a prosthetic mask bearing the resemblance of a Caucasian person with eye makeup. 

Despite concealing his highly recognizable face, all eyes were still on Ye as he made his way into a cab.

The haunting plastic mask covered the entirety of his head, but Kanye accessorized it with a black baseball cap and slick grey headphones.   

He teamed the creepy accessory with a black cap, leather Balenciaga jacket, faded jeans and knee-high boots – the same outfit he was seen wearing in Venice a day earlier. 

The rapper was busy on his phone, swiping away on the touch screen with an ungloved hand.

Once he shed the face mask, Kanye looked just like any other traveler returning home.

The All Of The Lights hit-maker traded in the creepy costume for another face mask, this one worn to slow the spread of COVID-19 rather than disguise his identity.

Interestingly, the rapper was also spotted wearing the mask while meeting up with Trump fixer Michael Cohen in New York on Tuesday, in photos obtained by Page Six

The duo were spotted at Sant Ambroeus Coffee Break at the Lowes Regency Hotel with Israeli judo champ Or Sassoon and ‘PR whiz’ Ronn Torossian.

Mayoral candidate Eric Adams was also supposed to join the group, but was unable to show after getting held up in another meeting. Kanye was apparently not going to be in the Big Apple very long, as he had to return to the airport.

Cohen did not reveal the details of their discussion when speaking with Page Six after their get-together, but revealed West had decided to wear the mask for ‘anonymity.’ 

‘The purpose [of the mask] was so that people would not recognize him … the first 10 minutes we sat down, he was mobbed by people … who wanted photos, and to say hello. So he put on this mask to give him some anonymity, which interestingly enough, did not really work.’

‘Kanye was very calm and relaxed with no security,’ 5WPR CEO Torossian explained to the site. ‘He was wearing the mask most of the time and said he was wearing it so he could walk around freely.

‘There was no security, he was just wandering the streets with the mask. He was a pleasant guy. He and Michael Cohen were talking about real estate.’

This is certainly not the first time Kanye has been seen donning such a spooky mask.

The rapper looked like an extra in a horror film while in Venice on Sunday wearing an alien-like mask.

Kanye’s outings come after his estranged wife Kim Kardashian shelled out $20 million in cash to buy the rapper out of their palatial marital home.

Kanye officially ‘signed over his rights to the property’ two weeks ago, according to TMZ, making his ex, 40, the sole owner of the property they purchased together seven years ago.

She has been living in their Hidden Hills abode with their four children North, eight, Saint, five, Chicago, three, and two-yea-old Psalm since filing for divorce in February.

The insider went on to tell the outlet that the negotiations between the two were ‘extremely cordial’ and she paid the Flashing Lights hitmaker in cash to smooth over the process.

The couple bought the mansion in 2014 for $20 million and Kanye led a complete redesign of home with the assistance of famed Belgian interior decorator Axel Vervoort.

Kim filed for divorce from the rapper in February, and despite recent reports that they were planning on rekindling their romance, a source later shot down the claims.

An insider told People: ‘They have come a long way since Kim filed for divorce. It’s taken them months to get to this point. Kim is happy that they get along and that things are amicable.’

They added: ‘The kids will always be her number one priority. She wants to have a friendly relationship with Kanye, because it benefits the kids.’

Whilst there’s no chance of a rekindling, Kim and Kanye are still great friends.

‘Kim and Kanye have a friendly relationship. It’s always been important to Kim to have a good relationship with Kanye.’
