The theme for Kid Cudi's birthday was apparently how to gather in a room the most random variety of guests who may or may not have a past beef.
On Wednesday night, the rapper called his 35th birthday somewhere else that was not the Nobu restaurant in Malibu, California, with frequent collaborator Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, as well as Pete Davidson and – pause for the dramatic effect – Timothée Chalamet.
Attendees at the party "everyone seemed to get along very well and had a great time together," an anonymous source told E! News. "It was a soft night and the group met and spoke."
Kardashian documented the meeting of minds with pictures of the crew enjoying a meal in a private room and laughing at something on Cudi's phone.

The group was likely do not watching Davidson's viral reprimand West, which the comedian delivered a week after West closed his guest musical spot on "Saturday Night Live" with a pro-Trump surprise last September.
In West's speech, which received a lot of boos from the live audience, the rapper claimed that the members of the "SNL" cast had "bullied me in the backstage" for wearing a MAGA hat.
While cast members like Kenan Thompson later accused West of keeping everyone "hostage" on stage, Davidson, despite being a big fan of the rapper, was the one who addressed West's comments in the next show. .
"Strictly speaking to me, what Kanye said after we went off the air last week was one of the most difficult and awkward things I've seen here, and I've seen Chevy Chase talk to an inmate," Davidson said during the Update. of the weekend segment with a "Make Kanye 2006 Again" cap
"He used it all week," Davidson continued on the MAGA hat. "Nobody told him not to use it. I wish I had bothered you. I wish I had suggested that it could bother some people, like your wife or any other black person. "
The two seem to have buried the ax of size "SNL" since then. Davidson praised West after the rapper exchanged a series of tweets with Davidson's ex-girlfriend, Ariana Grande, for a joke he made about West's fight with Drake.
"Bravo Kanye West for defending and speaking against mental health [stigma]"Davidson wrote in December, who has been open about his own mental health problems." I can not explain enough how difficult and frightening it is to be honest with this kind of thing. We need people like Kanye. "
As to why Chalamet was at the party, the "Call Me by Your Name" star has long been a fan of Kid Cudi, who was described as one of the actor's "personal gods" in a Vanity Fair profile on last year.
The fans were still naturally confused about the encounter:
I never imagined any of these people being together in a room ?????
