Former NBC honcho Jeff Zucker threw a lavish bar mitzvah at the Four Seasons last night for his son Andrew, with no expense spared — except Kanye West’s staggering $1 million demand to perform.
The bash, costing well over an estimated $250,000, included a performance by rapper Drake, “tremendous” food and fine wines — and customized Converse sneakers handed out as gifts to guests.
“They went all out for this bash,” a source told Page Six of the splashy shindig at the restaurant, which is a haunt of the city’s power crowd.
Sources said the Zucker family at first wanted West to perform at the party — but the hotheaded rapper demanded $1 million for the gig. Our sources said organizers balked at West’s price and briefly considered offering him $800,000, but instead went with the more reasonably priced Drake.
