KANYE WEST and his wife Kim are big fans of counting crows — but not the American band.
Instead, the celeb duo believe their late parents Donda West and Robert Kardashian have been reincarnated as birds who visit them on their doorstep.
Reality star Kim, 37, explained the couple’s superstitions — along with a bunch of other quirks she lives by.
‘I believe there are signs from the spirit world all around us,’ said the mother-of-three. ‘When my dad was sick with cancer, we were laying out by his pool and I said, “If you die, you have to come back in the form of a bird.” We were driving on the freeway right before his funeral and this huge flock of birds flew over the 101. Everyone stopped because it was so crazy looking. I was like, “There you are”.’
Kim said she and her rapper husband ‘always reference birds’.
She added: ‘We seem to see a lot of black crows. Kanye took a picture of the two black crows that are always at our house and always together.
‘We always say that they are our parents hanging out together at our house.’ Kim lost her father Robert in September 2003 to oesophageal cancer, while Kanye’s mother passed away in November 2007 after a heart attack following plastic surgery.
She also revealed to CR Fashion Book: ‘I can be superstitious at times.
‘Like before going on an airplane. My family and I always step on to the plane with the right foot first. Another superstition is that whenever we hear an ambulance, we always touch our hair. I also say a prayer the person will be okay. I’m big on prayer and superstition together.’
