Kanye West and his wife, Kim Kardashian West, have a unique Star Wars connection. In fact, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star says she thanks Star Wars for"creating a spark" between her and Kanye West.
It seems Kanye West and his wife worked together several years back--in 2008, to be exact--on the pilot for a show called Alligator Boots. Kim Kardashian West shared an old photo of the two of them that was taken on set.

"In honor of Star Wars: The Force Awakens being released today, I wanted to share these old pics of Kanye and me from years ago!" she writes. "We worked together on a pilot for a show called Alligator Boots back in 2008 and I played Princess Leia. We had met before this project (back in 2003), but I would say this is when we first really connected."
Did you know Kanye West and Kim Kardashian worked together on a TV show pilot? Is there any wonder why the show never aired on any TV network?

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are still reveling in their excitement over the birth of their baby boy, Saint West. They also have a daughter, North West.
Given Kim and Kanye's Star Wars connection, do you suppose they left someone in charge of Saint and North and headed out to the film's premiere?
