Beverly Hills Boy Becomes Man At Gaudy Bar Mitzvah Where Iggy Azalea Splits Her Pants
If you're rich enough, you can hire the Iggy Azalea and Nick Jonas, two of the hottest pop stars in America, to perform at your son's Bar Mitzvah. And in a strange turn of events, one of their pants might rip.
The boy who became a man was Julian Kemper, the son of Ross Hilton Kemper and Linda Kerkorian and the grandson of Kirk Kerkorian, a former MGM mogul and current CEO of Tracinda Corporation, TMZ reports. The party was themed like a James Bond movie and cost a cool $450,000. It was held at the Beverly Hills Hotel, currently best known for being owned by the Sultan of Brunei, who thinks it is okay to stone gay people.
The most surprising part of the night, however, was when Azalea's trademark posterior burst from the seams of her skintight pants during a rigorous twerk. Though numerous claims indicated that she had flashed the boy becoming a man, this video shows a rip and not much else, and she appears to realize what's happened during her dance.
Welcome to manhood, kid.
