Kanye West has donned one of his most bizarre looks to date – wearing a creepy prosthetic mask to his meeting with Michael Cohen.
The rapper, who has legally changed his name to Ye, was first spotted wearing the mask at JFK airport on Monday.
In photos published by Page Six, the 44-year-old was seen wearing the mask again while meeting Donald Trump’s former attorney for a coffee in New York City.

Michael told the publication: “The purpose [of the mask] was so that people would not recognize him … the first 10 minutes we sat down, he was mobbed by people … who wanted photos, and to say hello.”
“So he put on this mask to give him some anonymity, which interestingly enough, did not really work.”
The pair were joined by PR agent Ronn Torossian, who added: “Kanye was very calm and relaxed with no security. He was wearing the mask most of the time and said he was wearing it so he could walk around freely.”
“There was no security, he was just wandering the streets with the mask. He was a pleasant guy. He and Michael Cohen were talking about real estate.”
Kanye requested to legally change his name to Ye back in August, and it has since been approved by a Los Angeles Superior Court Judge.
The Yeezy founder’s name change comes amid his split from Kim Kardashian – who filed for divorce back in February after seven years of marriage.
The former couple share four children – North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm – who all take Kanye’s surname West.
