The rapper's erratic behavior and his accusations of abuse and infidelity are pushing the ‘influencer’ to a long and costly divorce.
Just over six years after getting married, it seems that Kim Kardashian (40) has said enough to Kanye West (43), for the sake of her four children. Maybe his love has not run out, but his patience has. As the reality TV star and businesswoman spent Christmas with his extended family in a rented mansion on Lake Tahone, between California and Nevada, nothing is known about the rapper after his disconcerting attempt to become president of the United States.
The artist has been since November 4 without showing signs of life on social networks. That day he voted for himself in an election where he did not get more than 60,000 votes in the entire country. Then he locked himself up on his ranch in Wyoming.
The couple has been separated de facto for a little over a year, and the rapper's surreal presidential race has been the last straw for the oldest of the Kardashian sisters, who has fought for her marriage, first trying to her husband will accept help to treat his bipolar disorder and then go to couples therapy. That during the campaign, he insulted his mother-in-law, Kris Jenner; That he revealed intimate details such as that he wanted his wife to abort their first daughter, or that they both wanted to lock him up in a mental hospital, has ended up blowing up a solid and profitable marriage.
After those attacks, Kim had no choice but to explain that her husband suffers from bipolar disorder, something that he had already dropped in one of his publications on social networks. When she was diagnosed with this mental illness, the socialite forced the producers of Keeping up with the Kardashians not to know, under threat of abandoning the family reality show.
None of them have confirmed that they are in divorce proceedings, something prudent due to their popularity, their fortune, and especially their four children: North (7), Saint (5), Chicago (2), and Psalm (1). Any statement that Kim or Kanye makes about the details of their breakup could hurt their image when negotiating divorce or child custody.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West met around 2003 thanks to the fact that they are both friends with Brandy Norwood, with whom Kanye recorded the song Talk about our love in 2004. They met again ten years later. In that span, West was engaged to designer Alexis Phifer and Kardashian dated athlete Reggie Bush. Then the rapper began a relationship with model Amber Rose. While the influencer invested 4 million dollars in her televised wedding with basketball player Kris Humphries, from whom she separated 72 days later. It was the second wedding for her since between 2000 and 2004 she was married to music producer Damon Thomas.
When West learned that Kardashian would be marrying Humphries, he went out of his way to prevent that wedding. Finally, in April 2012, they both decided to give each other a chance, even though she was not yet divorced. The couple closed that year by announcing the pregnancy. They got engaged on October 21, 2013, the socialite's 33rd birthday. Almost a year later, they were married in a lavish wedding at the Forte Belvedere castle in Florence in Italy, with a previous party in the Hall of Mirrors of the Palace of Versailles in Paris.
Kim was involved in defending prison inmates unfairly and enrolled in law, following in the footsteps of his father, Robert Kardashian. He insisted on running for the 46th president of the United States. His strange tweets began, including one in which he said that he had tried to separate from his wife when in November 2018 she met rapper Meek Mill at a hotel. West deleted all the messages ipso facto, but the damage was done.
The last post in which Kim refers to Kanye is from November 22, 2020, on the 10th anniversary of the album of this My beautiful dark twisted fantasy. The businesswoman shared that the song Lost in the world was based on a poem he wrote for her. Then came a Christmas that they have not shared and the intense rumors of divorce.
