Kim Kardashian West explained the story behind the now-viral photo that she shared of Kanye West, Timothée Chalamet, Kid Cudi, and Pete Davidson hanging out.

The KKW Beauty creator appeared on NBC’s “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” on Thursday and opened up about the unexpected response she got after posting several photos of the four stars celebrating Cudi’s 35th birthday in late January.

In the images, which you can see below, the musicians and actors were gathered at a table, laughing, and eating together.

Kardashian West explained to Fallon that she accompanied West, Chalamet, Davidson, and Cudi to the restaurant called Nobu, not realising that it was going to be “a guys dinner.” After sharing the photos with her Twitter followers, she received tons of messages from friends who were interested in Chalamet and Davidson.

“I didn’t even tag anyone,” Kardashian West said. “I got more DMs from my friends, from my gay friends, from my straight friends, everyone asking me about Timothée and Pete.”

The reality TV star went on to say that she didn’t want to intrude on their “guy time,” so she stayed in the background and kept busy with her phone.

“It was such a fun night, everyone just had such a good time, the vibe was so good, and I didn’t want to ruin it, so I just sat in the corner and documented it for them,” Kardashian West said.

When Kardashian first shared the photos from Cudi’s celebration, some fans were confused as to how the stars all ended up in the same room. However, West, Chalamet, and Davidson are all good friends with the musician.

In the past, Davidson said that Cudi saved his life.

“I would have killed myself if I didn’t have Kid Cudi,” the “Saturday Night Live” star said during an interview with “The Breakfast Club” in 2016. “If you’re 25 and under, I truly believe that Kid Cudi saved your life.”

Chalamet also credited the rapper to playing a significant part in his life. Speaking to GQ in 2018, the “Beautiful Boy” star said that he met Cudi backstage at a concert in Montreal, Canada, and had a lengthy conversation with the rapper that made him reevaluate his future as an actor.

As for West’s connection to Cudi, the “I Love It” singer has known him for a decade. They also collaborated under the name Kids See Ghosts for an album that was released in June 2018.
