The identity of the mystery man in the Kardashian-Jenner clan’s Thanksgiving photo has finally been revealed. While the extended blended family were nearly all present, one face in the photo was unfamiliar and it has now been revealed that he is Kanye West’s close friend, Sakiya Sandifer.
According to TMZ, the mystery man, who was standing at one end of the family photo, is none other than Kanye’s childhood friend. Sandifer reportedly grew up with the rapper back in Chicago, and he was in Los Angeles on business during the Thanksgiving holiday. Kanye then decided to invite his homie to the family dinner hosted by Khloe Kardashian.
According to the same report, Sandifer is no stranger to the clan. When Kanye married Kim in a lavish ceremony in Italy back in May 2014, he was part of the entourage. He apparently walked Kylie down the aisle, at the opening of the ceremony.
The family photo fuelled a lot of speculation, especially due to the apparent show of unity despite recent issues. Scott Disick is seen standing in the photo, posted by both Kylie Jenner and Kim Kardashian. He is holding his 5-year old son Mason, and standing close to ex-girlfriend Kourtney Kardashian. Despite having broken up, Scott is apparently still very much welcome in the family gatherings.
Kylie Jenner’s boyfriend, Tyga is also in the photo. The gathering came just days after a breakup between the two was also rumored to have taken place. They are apparently still together as evidenced by the photo and Kylie’s own statement on the Ellen Degeneres show.
Also notably present in the photo, is Caitlyn Jenner. In recent episodes of the family’s reality show, “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” she and Kris have been at odds with each other and have even put their kids in an awkward situation when it comes to seeing them.
They have since repaired their relationship, and have been seen in numerous family gatherings.
