In a bit of news that should come as a shock to no one, Page Six is reporting Kim Kardashian has had enough and is divorcing Kanye West because of his Kanye-West-like behavior.
“Kim got Kanye to go up there [Wyoming] so they could live separate lives and quietly get things sorted out to separate and divorce. She’s done,” the source continued.
Turns out that just like everyone in the world knew, “living separate lives” is code for “getting divorced.”
You can probably guess the reason Kim is seeking a divorce.
She is serious about taking the bar exam and becoming a lawyer, she is serious about her prison reform campaign. Meanwhile Kanye is talking about running for president and saying other crazy s–t, and she’s just had enough of it.
Can I divorce Kanye West, too? We’ve all had enough of his antics, right?
Apparently, the big sticking point for the couple is ownership of their Calabasas mansion, which is owned by Kanye but where Kim is raising their kids. Children need a stable environment and they need that environment to not be in Wyoming.
It’s not like Kanye is super keen on saving the marriage either, though.
Meanwhile, a separate source says Kanye, who became increasingly uncomfortable and irritated by the Kardashians’ over-the-top reality star lives, “Is completely over the entire family … He wants nothing to do with them,” adding he eventually found their reality show “unbearable.”
I get how that would be an issue, it’s not like Kim had been doing a reality show for seven years when she and Kanye got married or anything.
Kanye West married someone who was famous for having a sex tape and being friends with Paris Hilton and then he found Jesus and expected her to go along with all his Jesusey nonsense and dress like a nun or whatever and Kim clearly wasn’t having it. Kanye feels like he’s the victim because that is how Kanye West feels when someone doesn’t do what Kanye West wants them to do.
I think everyone saw this coming when West started leading prayer services, and if not then definitely when he started complaining that Kim dressed too sexy.
Seriously, who among us could make a relationship with Kanye West work?
We know you've heard this before.
Many times in recent months, in fact.
But we can assure you of the following:
You've never heard it from such a reliable source.
Following an endless array of rumors about the marriage between Kim Kardashian and Kanye West coming to an end... none other than E! News is now confirming these reports.
Yes, the same company/network/outlet that airs Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
And the same company/network/outlet that would never -- EVER! -- run such a scoop unless it was both accurate -- and also vetted by Kris Jenner and members of her family.
Stated the official E! website late on Tuesday:
After six years of marriage and more than eight years together, the E! reality TV star and rapper are going their separate ways.
"It's gotten to the point where they haven't spent time together as a married couple in months," a source tells E! News.
"They've seen each other for the sake of the kids but have been living separately. Kim knows the marriage is over. She's known for a while."
For the official record, however, Kim is yet to file for divorce.
Kim and Kanye went public with their relationship in April 2012 and share four children together: North West, 7, Saint West, 5, Chicago West, 2, and Psalm West, 20 months.
It is because of these young boys and girls that Kardashian is patiently weighing her legal options.
"She wants to make sure she's making the right decision for the kids," the E! source adds.
Tension has very clearly existed between Kardashian and West since this past summer.
As part of his campaign for the Presidency, Kanye exposed such personal tidbits as the fact that he wanted to abort North West when he first learned his now-wife was pregnant.
It got to the point where Kardashian even issued her first-ever statement about her husband's mental health.
In July, she asked folks for "compassion" in the wake of Kanye's ongoing mental breakdown, referencing West's bipolar order and stating:
"Those who are close with Kanye know his heart and understand his words sometimes do not align with his intentions."
Since back then, however, Kardashian has kept her space from West.
She's been living in Los Angeles with her sons and daughters, while the rapper has mostly been in Wyoming at his ranch.
Continues E! in its shocking confirmation:
"It's not about the marriage anymore, she'll always care for Kanye but it's over between them. Kim is only focused on what's best for the kids. It's a tough decision for her and she's figuring it out."
Other often-reliable sources are also now reporting that this union is over.
“They are keeping it low-key but they are done,” claims a new Page Six article. “Kim has hired [divorce lawyer] Laura Wasser and they are in settlement talks.”
Kardashian has not been wearing her wedding ring for quite awhile, this newspaper continues.
“Kim got Kanye to go up there [Wyoming] so they could live separate lives and quietly get things sorted out to separate and divorce. She’s done,” iits source adds.
West himself Tweeted the following in July:
“I been trying to get divorced since Kim met with Meek at the Warldolf [sic] for ‘prison reform."
He was seemingly referring here to a criminal justice summit attended by Kim and rapper Meek Mill in November 2018.
And Page Six alleges that Kim's committment to prison reform, her decision to use her platform for societal good at last, is a major reason behind this split.
Reports the outlet:
“She is serious about taking the bar exam and becoming a lawyer, she is serious about her prison reform campaign.
"Meanwhile Kanye is talking about running for president and saying other crazy s–t, and she’s just had enough of it.”
Remember Kim’s ridiculously extravagant $1 million-plus 40th birthday in Tahiti last October? When she rented out a private island for her loved ones?
Kanye showed up for just one day.
Writes The New York Post:
“He showed up late and left early, he wouldn’t appear in any of their Instagram shots. All he did was bring over the hologram of her father Robert Kardashian, then got out of there as fast as he could."
Finallly, People Magazine says Kim is "preparing to divorce" the artist.
"He knows that she’s done," reports this well-respected publication, concluding:
"She has had enough, and she told him that she wants some space to figure out her future.
"He’s okay. He’s sad, but okay. He knows the inevitable will happen, and he knows that it’s coming soon."
Right on the heels of Khloe Kardashian's tone deaf display of riches, Kim is coming under fire.
She's offering to give away money to 1,000 lucky fans ... but once people began digging past the surface, they found a lot of reasons to feel angry.
"Hey guys! 2020 has been hard and many are worried about paying rent or putting food on their table," Kim tweeted on Monday, December 21.
"I want to spread the love by sending $500 to 1000 people," she announced.
Kim then invited her fans and followers to "Send me your $cashtag below with #KKWHoliday." She also tagged her tweet with "#partner."
Offering to give away $500,000 so conveniently and with few caveats is great ... but to say that Kim received some pushback is an understatement.
One critic wrote: "Celebrities be like: 'we know you guys are starving and the government won’t help you, so beg for money online and I might sprinkle you peasants some.'"
"Celebrities making us beg for cashapp money on here I feel like s--t," another expressed.
"Does this ease your conscience about about your covid vacation?" one response asked. "Or do you feel powerful making people beg you for money?"
"These celebrities giving money set through Cashapp are not giving their own money. Cashapp/Chime is sponsoring," another explained.
That same tweet continued: "It's awesome people are getting help but I keep seeing people framing the celebrities as awesome people for giving 'their' money away."
Kim Kardashian, who has a reported net worth of $780 million and who made an estimated $50 million in 2020 alone, is a very wealthy woman.
But she didn't tag her tweet as "#partner" because she feels a sense of partnership with her impoverished followers and fans.
It's a huge promotional giveaway, and one can only assume that Cashapp is footing the bill.
The plan is simple: you tell people drop their Cashapp links in the replies and they'll have a chance to win money.
A lot of people are desperate after months of massive governmental failures, and everyone likes money, so of course people are going to plug their links.
It's a safe bet that thousands of people will create new Cashapp accounts for a chance to win.
And even if they don't get the payout, once you have a Cashapp, you're more likely to use it, even if it's just to link to it for others to send you money in your time of need.
It's a smart ad, and it makes sense to run it through one of the most famously wealthy and social media-active people on the planet.
In fact, scammers have been using posts very similar to this one to trick people into giving away personal information for years, albeit mostly to Facebook denizens.
Is giving away money to random people on social media an absolute good? Of course.
No one short of the shrieking ghost of Ayn Rand or the slowly melting wax statue of Paul Ryan objects in principle to handing out money, even in small amounts, to those in need.
The issue is both the way that Kim superficially appears to be the one doling out wads of cash, and the fact that she herself probably made a bundle from running this ad.
To be clear, with the exception of perhaps some Leftier-than-thou tryhards on social media, no one is blaming Kim for outrageous income inequality, decades of wage stagnation, or the pandemic.
But given the going rate to run any kind of ad through someone like Kim on social media, fans suspect that she was paid more by Cashapp than all of the recipients of this promotional giveaway combined.
It's the government's job to promote the general welfare of the American people -- it says so right in the Constitution -- but seeing an almost-billionaire offer a sum like this of a company's money can be hard for someone who had to skip presents this year to keep the lights on.
People have been saying Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are on the brink of divorce since about a week after they got married, and I’m pretty sure all of those people have been right. At this point, I think Kim and Kanye just aren’t getting divorced out of stubbornness. We’ve all seen Kanye West and realized that amount of time you could reasonably stay married to him is about a day.
While Kim and Kanye refuse to get it over with and get divorced, they do appear to be separated, according to People.
After weathering a tumultuous summer, Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West are still together — though a source says they “very much live separate lives” currently.
“Kim has work and projects that are important to her, and Kanye has his,” the source tells PEOPLE. “Their lives don’t overlap much.” (A rep for Kardashian West, 40, had no comment when reached by PEOPLE, and a rep for West, 43, did not respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.)
Still, the source says “Kim seems happy” and is “very focused on work and causes.”
Kim’s work and causes are mostly prison reform, a cause that has been gaining in popularity with the public who have historically only wanted to make prisons worse. Even for them, the for-profit prison model is a bridge too far.
The post It Sounds a Lot Like Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are Seperated appeared first on The Blemish.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are still husband and wife.
This is literally and legally true.
But are they in love? Are they committed?
Is this a relationship that will truly stand the test of time?
With insiders alleging that Kimye remains on the verge of divorce, People Magazine has published a new report that basically backs up this alarming yet inevitable assertion.
Simply put, the rapper and the reality star are living "separate lives," according to this typically-reliable publication.
"Kim has work and projects that are important to her, and Kanye has his," a source tells this outlet, adding:
"Their lives don't overlap much."
The famous couple has been on a roller coaster for most of 2020, ever since Kanye announced his failed Presidential run and went public with various details of his relationship.
Most infamously and notoriously, West said he wanted to abort daughter North West after he learned Kardashian was pregnant many years ago.
West hasn't said very much since he lost to Joe Biden, while Kardashian has set her sights on a legitimate political and societal topic.
She spoke out strongly, for example, in the wake of Brandon Bernard being executed this week.
"She strongly believes she can make a change when it comes to prison reform," this same People source says of the mother of four, who is studying to become an attorney.
"This is her passion," the anonymous individual says of Kardashian's justice reform advocacy. "Her family is very proud of her."
For good reason, to be honest.
Kim has made quite a few missteps along the way, most recently hosting a birthday party on a private island amid a deadly pandemic.
But prison reform? Battling against the death penalty?
Even if you disagree with Kardashian on these subjects, you must admire her for trying to use her platform to influence causes in which she belives.
Kanye, conversely, actually ran for President of the United States this year... without actually taking a stance on anything of substance.
Hence why there's pretty evident tension between the spouses, who are parents to the following children:
Daughters North, 7, and Chicago, 3; as well as sons Saint, 5, and Psalm, 18 months.
Will Kim and Kanye ever get divorced? We strongly doubt it.
But their honeymoon phase ended ages ago.
They are evidently only sticking together now for the sake of their kids and/or for the positive PR that comes with a successful marriage.
Successful in air quotes, of course.
Kardashian, in July, publicly touched on her husband's bipolar disorder diagnosis in a lengthy statement, asking fans for "compassion."
She most recently posted about the couple's relationship in a Nov. 22 Instagram post.
"Happy 10 year anniversary to Kanye's 'My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy' album," she wrote, citing the artist's smash hit album.
There's still love between the two a decade later, and she wants to make sure we know it.
"For those that don't know the story behind 'Lost In The World' .. .Kanye couldn't come up with some of the lyrics but then realized he had them in a poem he had written me that was my birthday card he gave me for my 30th birthday."
"He took the poem he wrote me and made it the song," she continued.
"I keep everything!"
As it turns out, the Kardashains aren't going anywhere.
Yes, the famous/polarizing family are walking away from the show that made them famous...
... but they are walking right into a brand new small screen home for themselves.
It was announced on Thursday -- at Disney’s Investor Day -- that Kim, Kourtney, Khle, Kris, Kendall and Kylie are headed to Hulu.
Per the official press release these veteran reality stars will:
Create global content, which will stream exclusively on Hulu in the U.S. and in multiple territories on Star internationally. Expected debut is late 2021 and additional details will be shared when available.
This is all we know about the deal at the moment.
But you better believe the Kardashians and Jenners don't come cheap.
"Excited to announce our new multi year partnership with Hulu and Star and what's to come in 2021 @hulu," Kris Jenner Tweeted about the news, while Kourtney Kardashian added:
Back in September, E! and the Kardashian-Jenner clan announced that Keeping Up with the Kardashians would end after its 20th season in 2021.
It was assumed that the program was going off the air due to low ratings and simply due to various family members wanting to move on.
For a duration of last season, for example, Kourtney kept saying she wanted to quit.
"It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to Keeping Up with the Kardashians," Kim and company said late this past summer.
"After what will be 14 years, 20 seasons, hundreds of episodes and several spin-off shows, we've decided as a family to end this very special journey.
"We are beyond grateful to all of you who've watched us for all of these years -- through the good times, the bad times, the happiness, the tears, and the many relationships and children.
"We'll forever cherish the wonderful memories and countless people we've met along the way."
"Thank you to the thousands of individuals and businesses that have been a part of this experience and most importantly, a very special thank you to Ryan Seacrest for believing in us, E! for being our partner, and our production team at Bunim/Murray who've spent countless hours filming our lives.
"Our last season will air early next year in 2021.
"We love you!"
It's worth noting here that E! paid the family $150 million the last time they renewed their contract in 2017.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex (aka Prince Harry and Meghan Markle) recently signed their a deal with Netflix, which is thought to be worth $147 million
In other words:
You better believe the Kardashians will be raking it in with Hulu.
Wrote E! in September:
E! has been the home and extended family to the Kardashian-Jenners for what will be 14 years, featuring the lives of this empowering family.
Along with all of you, we have enjoyed following the intimate moments the family so bravely shared by letting us into their daily lives.
While it has been an absolute privilege and we will miss them wholeheartedly, we respect the family's decision to live their lives without our cameras...
We thank the entire extended family and our production partners, Bunim Murray and Ryan Seacrest Productions for embarking on this global phenomenon together.
When it comes to wealth and fame, few families can top the Kardashians (sure, there are the Trumps, but Donald is $400 million in debt, which is not very baller).
However, it seems that power is a different matter entirely.
Forbes magazine released its annual World's Most Powerful Women list this week, and it seems that not a single name from the entire Kar-Jenner clan appears anywhere on the list of 100 movers and shakers.
Granted, the list dominated by politicians and CEOs -- as it probably should be -- but plenty of celebrities made the cut, as well.
Rihanna and Beyonce were both included, as was the Queen of All Media, Oprah Winfrey.
The list is topped by the likes of Angela Merkel and Kamala Harris, so perhaps it was foolish for the members of the Kard clan to believe they would be included.
But you know they thought that at least one of them would earn a spot.
And now that they've been thoroughly snubbed, you can bet that their reaction to being left out is downright Trumpian.
Although to be fair, there's actually some basis for the theory that the Kards might be the victims of a conspiracy theory.
After all, Kim and company have been beefing with the folks at Forbes for much of 2020.
It all started when Kylie Jenner was named the world's youngest self-made billionaire back in 2019.
It was Forbes that bestowed that title upon her, but in an unprecedented move, the editors reversed their decision this year and reported that they had been duped by misleading figures.
The magazine now claims that Kylie is not a billionaire and never was, and they even suggested that she lied about her net worth.
Forbes has yet to re-confer billionaire status upon Kylie, even after she sold 51 percent of her makeup company for $1.2 billion back in January.
However, Forbes did declare Kanye West a billionaire, but the rapper and sneaker mogul claims the magazine dramatically underestimated his net worth.
Kanye claims he's worth somewhere in the neighborhood of $3 billion, while the magazine puts him at just over $1 billion.
Of course, either way, this means that Kim is a billionaire who is married to a billionaire, and it seems like that would be enough to earn her a spot on the Forbes 100.
And it's not just money that makes Mrs. West a juggernaut, either.
Kim helped secure presidential pardons for numerous non-violent offenders who had been locked up for life, and she's currently hard at work on becoming a lawyer.
If that's not power, we don't know what is!
But for whatever reason, it seems it just wasn't in the cards for her this year.
Perhaps it was the stigma associated with the Kardashian name, or maybe the family's intense feud with the magazine played a role.
Sadly, unlike Trump, the Kardashians are unable to demand a recount.
You know Kanye would be in court over this if he had any legal recourse at all.
2020 is the strangest year of my life and it isn’t even close. The pandemic and isolation have driven us all to collectively snap or something because everything just seems weird.
For example, everyone was obsessed with Tiger King on Netflix, a true-crime doc about an overly flamboyant big cat zoo owner who goes by Joe Exotic who was convicted of trying to hire an assassin to kill his rival Carole Baskin, who herself had a spouse disappear under mysterious circumstances.
Joe maintains his innocence and thinks his newfound fame might be enough to convince outgoing President Donald Trump to pardon him as he leaves the White House. Joe may actually get his wish because Trump was always more circus promoter than leader anyway.
His legal team said he was close to a pardon last week, and we just learned from Entertainment Tonight that Joe even reached out to Kim Kardashian to see if she could get the President’s ear on his behalf.
“I know you have never met me and may never want to however I do believe that you hold the values of our justice system dear to your heart,” Joe writes in the letter dated Nov. 4. “I am writing you this letter not as Joe Exotic but as the person Joseph Maldonado-Passage, asking you to please help me by just taking 10 minutes out of your life and placing a call to President Trump to look at my 257 page pardon it’s all the evidence I’m innocent and ask him to sign my pardon so I can return home to [my husband] Dillon [Passage] and my father.”
I can’t blame Joe for exploring all his options, but does it seem weird to anyone else that Kim Kardashian is now the face of prison reform? Kim is handling an actually important case as she’s petitioning President Trump to commute the death sentence of Brandon Bernard, which is scheduled to take place December 10th.
L.A. County’s new D.A. is also interested in talking to Kim Kardashian about prison reform, a sentence I never in a million years thought I would write but here we are. So 2020, in addition to everything else, is the year where you need Kim Kardashian to notice you if you want justice. Excellent trend.
The post Joe Exotic Wants Kim Kardashian to Get Him Pardoned appeared first on The Blemish.
The Presidential election is over, and enough votes have been counted in enough states for every major news outlet to confidently report that Joe Biden will be the next president of the United States. This might be good news to you or it might be bad news to you and honestly, it really shouldn’t matter all that much because there’s very little difference between them.
One of the odder things to come out of this election, though, is that for whatever reason people really, really care how Kim Kardashian voted.
Lol but who did you vote for?
— Old Money (@Jearr) November 7, 2020
So who you vote for Kimberly?
— Gretel Bonilla (@gretelb5) November 7, 2020
Now you might think I’m about to tell you that kit doesn’t matter who Kim Kardashian voted for because she’s a rich, out-of-touch reality TV star whose worldview likely doesn’t align with anyone whose home doesn’t have a walk-in refrigerator. But you’re wrong.
I’m going to tell you it doesn’t matter who Kim Kardashian voted for because she lives in Calabasas and Joe Biden won California by over four million votes. Two-thirds of the most populated state voted for Biden; Kim or any California voted could write themselves in for president and it would not make even the tiniest difference.
Maybe you think Kanye West’s vote matters because he lives in Wyoming, a state with a population of basically just Kanye West, and somehow Kim is responsible for him but again, you couldn’t be more wrong. Kanye West has never voted for anyone but Kanye West and will never vote for anyone but Kanye West because Kanye West only actually cares about Kanye West. Kanye showed his ballot and he didn’t even bother to vote in any of the down-ballot races, he just marked the bubble by his name and said “Okay, we’re good here.” He was never going to vote for Biden or Trump.
Let me tell you a story about my grandmother. Whoever the president was, my grandmother liked him, whether she voted for him or not. She said George W Bush was a great man and when Barack Obama was elected she said he was a great man even though she was kind of racist because she was born in the 20s or something. She respected the President because he was our leader.
I never really got it and I mostly disagreed, I think Obama was the best president in my lifetime and I also think he was still a pretty lousy president. But I don’t understand the desire to brand people who worked with Trump like you’re Aldo Raine; Kim Kardashian did more to accomplish left-wing policy under Donald Trump by working with him in prison reform than Barack Obama or Nancy Pelosi did in the same four years, she’s not the bad guy here.
Politics is not a team sport and when you attack Kim Kardashian who is, by the way, celebrating the victory of the guy we kind of think is okay or at least better than the other guy, you don’t have to comment about how bad she sucks. Kim Kardashian is smarter and more politically informed than anyone asking her how she voted and that is not me complimenting Kim, I’ll tell you that for sure.

There is a civil war brewing that is threatening to tear our country apart. I’m expecting rioting and massive violence with each side almost religiously entrenched and out for blood. I am, of course, talking about the feud between Kylie Jenner and Kim Kardashian.
The Sun reports that Jenner is at her wits end with the way Kim insists the world revolves around her.
A source revealed: “At least two of the sisters are always fighting – that’s how families are – but right now there’s major tension between Kylie and Kim.
“Firstly, there’s no way Kylie had time or wanted to quarantine for two weeks before the trip and she told her that. She’s tired of Kim making demands and everyone having to do what she says.
Kylie was notably absent from Kim’s 40th birthday bash, which turned out to be a really smart move on her part. She turned out to be the only winner in that debacle. While her entire family was getting dragged, she was a sexy Power Ranger.
I would rank her as maybe the second sexiest Power Ranger, behind Mao Ichimichi.
“But also, she just didn’t want the pressure of being on a huge trip with Kim – they bicker about everything to how much she ‘owes her success’ to Kim, to who is more successful.”
They added: “Kylie hates conflict, so she booked in other commitments and avoided another fight.”
Kylie. Kylie is clearly more successful. Which kind of explains why Kim is so demanding, she’s been shown up by her younger sister who is famous for more than making a sex tape with a famous person’s brother.

All Kim Kardashian wanted to do was have a nice, quiet, humble birthday party on a remote private island with all her friends and family in the middle of a deadly pandemic. What could possibly go wrong?
Kim Kardashian is married to Kanye West and they have four kids together, so she’s clearly not a great critical thinker. Those were the skills that were on display when she tweeted about her birthday bash Tuesday night.

A lot of people like the Kardashian’s built their brands as influencers by basically presenting themselves as the gentry; they’re rich and they flash their cash around and show off all the luxury brand-name goods they own or are pretending to own.
As it turns out, that branding isn’t very popular when people are not only stuck inside but in a lot of cases potentially losing their livelihood or even their homes because a pandemic has shut everything down and the government has offered virtually no assistance for most of the country despite giving millions of dollars to idiot billionaires. So seeing said billionaires jet off to a private island like Prince Prospero is just a slap in the face now.
Kim’s tone-deaf post quickly became a meme.

Where does her arm go? I suppose she could have it turned up at the elbow and it’s just behind Khloe’s arm and back but it’s a pretty tight shot that you can’t see any of it or like, her hand on her sister’s shoulder.
People seem to be a little tired of the Kardashians. It turns out rich idiots are only amusing to a point and then you’re just ready to roll out the guillotine.
The post Kim Kardashian’s 40th Birthday Was an Absolute Disaster appeared first on The Blemish.
I’d like to think of myself as being pretty hard to surprise by now.
Part of that is just how terrible this year has been. Part of it is that I spend way, way too much time online, seeing through the prisms of humanity’s worst inventions – Twitter, Facebook, and social media overall – just how strange the world is nowadays.
I’ve seen female conservative activists claim they think letting women vote was a bad idea. I’ve seen the Ukrainian government set up an entire social media account where they accuse Russia of being a toxic ex.
I’ve seen one of my favorite rappers, A$AP Rocky, being mentioned by a diplomatic ambassador during the impeachment trial of the President of the United States. This, of course, being the very same president who tweeted puns after trying to bully Sweden (our ally) to release Rocky.
Basically, call me a cynic, but it takes a lot to catch me off guard nowadays.
So when I say that I was surprised a while ago to see Dua Lipa of all people stoking nationalism in the Western Balkans last month, you can see why that’s impressive.
Yes, Dua Lipa, known for her hits “New Rules” and “Don’t Start Now” and…ugh…“Physical,” made big headlines across Europe and the United States for tweeting a map of what’s called Greater Albania, essentially claiming that portions of neighboring Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia, and Greece belong to Albania.
If that all made very little sense, don’t worry, Balkan politics are messy and confusing. Basically, Serbs and Albanians tend to hate each other, and they especially fight over Kosovo, an Albanian-majority breakaway country from Serbia…where Dua Lipa’s parents came from before settling in London.
Essentially, most people walk on eggshells when they talk about anything relating to Kosovo, Serbia, Albania, really any of the countries in the area.
And then you’ve got this popstar sauntering in and tweeting her pride for Albanian land claims, before defending herself the next day by saying she’s against all kinds of hate, after a bunch of Serbs, Montenegrins, and Croats roasted her alive.
The ironic part? Dua Lipa wasn’t even the only singer out on this weird West Balkan binge. Rita Ora, another British superstar of Kosovar Albanian origin, had posted the day before pushing Apple to designate Kosovo on their map system (Apple, like all good huge companies, avoids getting entangled with hot political issues).
Yeah, all we need now is for Bebe Rexha to stop “working on her album” (who are we kidding, it’s been over two years, she’s retired and spending those checks on home) and come out in favor of taking Corfu back from the Greeks in order to get the Albanian celebrity trifecta.
But I don’t want you to think this is something that only happens regarding the Balkans and their weird, screwed-up politics. No, let’s go farther southeast, to the northern Middle East (always a good idea when we head to that area, right?), near the Caucasus Mountains.
Currently, Armenia and Azerbaijan are having some troubles. Much like the Balkan thing, this is an issue that goes back hundreds of years, mostly over a small territory between them called Artsakh. This is not the first time they’ve gone to war over the issue, but it is the first time in a few years.
With Turkey backing Azerbaijan and Russia presumably going to support its Armenian ally, this is going to be perhaps the messiest story of an already messy year. However, what I didn’t really see coming was another party jumping in: Kim Kardashian.
Yes, Kim Kardashian West, fashion icon, supermodel, and proof that the beautiful ones always choose the crazy guys, has been relentlessly posting in support of Armenia since the war’s outbreak.
Her choosing Armenia over Azerbaijan is probably due to her family lineage: her dad’s side of the family is Armenian-American, not too surprising for anyone who’s ever been to Glendale, California.
Between her husband’s Twitter meltdowns and her visits to Mexico, apparently, Kim’s been pushing the Trump administration, and the Obama one before it, to back Armenia more often, despite not speaking the language. She even visited the country with husband and daughter in tow in 2015, taking a few publicity shots by the official Armenian Genocide memorial.
And this is what’s been so weird as of late. It’s not that celebrities are using their platforms to talk about politics; that’s a tale as old as time. Stormzy comes out on the Glasgow stage flanked by Jeremy Corbyn. Ted Nugent spent eight years gunning for Obama as if the guy had broken his sister’s heart.
Hell, Alyssa Milano has made an entire second career out of just being one of the loudest voices for the American left (which is a tough category to win, given the entire cast of The West Wing qualifies).
No, the weird thing is how American and British celebrities are increasingly turning out as ardent supporters of causes that an overwhelming majority of their fans would not know about in the slightest.
The Balkans is a hot topic in Europe, Turkey, and Russia, maybe, but for most of the world? Nobody cares, especially not the fourteen-year-old fan of some pop star in Boston.
As for Kim Kardashian’s latest big cause, she may get a lot of love from Yerevan, but stateside, nothing really. Americans can’t even point out Iraq on a map, and we’ve been in that country for twenty years. You want them to know about Armenia and Azerbaijan?
I guess really this was inevitable. Artists have gotten such huge platforms; they were bound to start switching up. Why focus on just abortion rights or issues like gay marriage when a majority of your supporters already probably support them anyway?
No, if you want to really make a splash, you have to change lanes. If every big-city liberal is talking about the Supreme Court, then you go and talk about the Uyghurs in China, or the issue of the Ethiopian Great Renaissance Dam.
You have the platform, you have the celebrity; these guys are just making it global.

The past few months have made a few things exceptionally clear, specifically that Kim Kardashian is a really good person and Kanye West is… not.
You may recall how Kanye decided to run for President and used his campaign to air all his dirty laundry with his wife Kim Kardashian, who we now know has a heart as big as her ass.
Page Six reported on exactly what Kim did for Kanye when he had COVID, and I absolutely wouldn’t hold a campaign rally and tell everyone she considered an abortion if she did that for me.
“Kanye had it way at the beginning, when nobody really knew what was going on,” she told Grazia magazine. “It was so scary and unknown. I had my four babies and no one else in the house to help.”
The star said that she had to change his sheets and help him get out of bed “when he wasn’t feeling good.”
“It was a challenge because it was so unknown,” she said. “Changing his sheets with gloves and a face shield was really a scary time.”
I don’t even remember hearing about Kanye getting COVID, that’s how crazy he was acting all summer. He was acting more outlandish than a global pandemic. That’s impressive even for Kanye West.
The post Kim Kardashian Nursed Kanye Through COVID Before He Called Her a White Supremacist on Social Media appeared first on The Blemish.
Forget anonymous sources for a moment.
Who knows how reliable they can be or if they even exist, right?
Late last week, however, Kim Kardashian herself gave fans a reason to think her marriage to Kanye West might be nearing its end, following weeks and weeks' worth of similar speculation.
"A year from now, everything you’re stressing about won’t mean a thing," Kim relayed via Instagram, passing along a quote that certainly seems pertinent to her ongoing situation.
"Be thankful, smile more, spend more time with family and don’t stress the small things," she added.
"This is our one chance at life. Don’t let anyone or anything take away your happiness."
Pretty much impossible not to analyze these words and the meaning/intention behind them, you know?
Since around the middle point of this summer, Kanye has been campaigning for President by ranting and raving his way through speeches and social media posts.
He first raised a billion eyebrows when he admitted on stage that he wanted to abort his daughter, North, after Kim told him she was pregnant many years ago.
Following this revelation, the artist claimed on Twitter that he had been trying to divorce the mother of his four children -- and also that Kris Jenner was a white supremacist.
Both personal and truly insane stuff.
Kim responded by issuing a lengthy statement that asked people to have "compassion" for her husband's bipolar disorder.
It basically admitted Kanye was suffering a mental breakdown.
She hasn't said a lot about their relationship since, but numerous reports have come out about Kardashian considering a divorce from Kanye.
“Kim has the whole divorce planned out, but she’s waiting for him to get through his latest episode," an insider told Page Six, for example, in September.
This brings us back to the Instagram Stories quote above.
A year from now, everything you’re stressing about won’t mean a thing.
Might Kim be stressing about her romance and reminding herself that making a clean split would be painful now... but pay dividends down the line when Kanye is out of her life for good?
Be thankful, smile more, spend more time with family and don’t stress the small things. This is our one chance at life.
Kardashian may be telling herself here that she doesn't get a do-over.
Life moves too quickly and she needs to make the most of it and, let's face it, does that include being the wife to an unstable narcissist?
Don’t let anyone or anything take away your happiness.
This concluding line doesn't even need an explanation, does it? How many content spouses would write such a thing?
Kardashian, meanwhile, dropped this gigantiic hint in the wake of close pal Jonathan Cheban appearing on The Wendy Williams Show -- and using the past tense to describe Kim and Kanye's relationship.
It is what it is. They were good. He's Kanye, the guy is a genius," Cheban told the host.
"Geniuses go through things all the time. His brain is on 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. I could never be able to think and go like he does. It's overwhelming.
"There's got to be a certain point where things go AWOL and then you get back."
Perhaps. Perhaps that's how a genius works and acts.
But think about it:
Would you want to be married to this kind of person?
Back in July, it seemed certain that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were headed for divorce.
During a severe bipolar episode, Kanye publicly accused Kim of of cheating on him and threatened to divorce her.
It seemed like the sort of scandal the couple wouldn't be able to come back from.
But here we are, just a few months later, and the Wests are back to doing what they do best:
Kim is looking hot on social media, and Kanye is telling her how to dress.
Yeah, that last part is a little weird, but hey -- it seems to work for them!
Anyway, we think it's safe to say Kim ad Kanye have ironed out their differences -- for the time being at least.
But these two don't celebrate a reconciliation by snacking down on unlimited breadsticks at Olive Garden like a couple of peasants.
No, they collab on a fashion shoot and post the results on Twitter!
They've done this sort of thing before, but the Wests latest shoot was especially well-received.
For one thing, people just seemed happy to see some photo evidence that Kim and Kanye are back together.
On top of that, it seems that at first glance, a lot of folks thought these were nude photos of Kim.
Alas, that's not the case.
Kim is wearing a some sort of one-piece thing that roughly matches her complexion, and the sepia-toned photos do sort of trick your brain into thinking you're looking at something that's NSFW.
"You’re so beautiful OMG," one fan commented on the provocative pics.
"Kanye is so talented," another tweeted.
"So Ye is a genius behind the camera too," a third chimed in.
Someone who knows more about photography than we do would have to confirm or deny that last statement.
Seems to us that the subject of the photos is doing most of the work here.
But hey, we're sure both parties worked together to bring this nude illusion to Twitter.
(Yes, Kim posted the photos on Twitter instead of Instagram, which is a bit strange. Maybe she figured the folks on that hell site needed a break from their constant political quarrelling.)
Anyway, the news that Kim is giving Kanye his 475th second chance doesn't come as too much of a shock.
After all, while he was slandering her and calling Kris Jenner a white supremacist, she was apolgizing on his behalf and explaining to the world that he's a victim of a horrible mental illness.
"He is a brilliant but complicated person who on top of the pressures of being an artist and a black man, who experienced the personal loss of his mother, and has to deal with the pressure and isolation that is highlighted by his bipolar disorder," Kim wrote on Instagram at the time.
"Those who are close with Kanye know his heart and understand his words some times do not align with his intentions
Well, Kim might have a son named Saint, but it seems she's the one with the biblical-caliber patience in this family!
It's no secret that the ladies of the Kardashian clan have had quite a bit of work done.
And while they don't necessarily feel the need to lie about it (anymore), they also don't like to remind fans of the extent to which they've been surgically enhanced.
And we guess that's why Kylie Jenner was less than pleased to see this pic on Kim Kardashian's Instagram page.
Kylie is the world's youngest self-made billionaire, so she has little cause for complaint in life.
But she's also the youngest of Kim's sisters, which means that we saw more of her awkward phase than anyone else's.
That might be why Kylie started correcting what she saw as her "imperfections" while she was still in her teens.
Nowadays, it's widely accepted that Kylie has dramatically altered her appearance.
But at the beginning of her career in the public eye, her rapidly changing face was a major source of controversy (you might remember the years in which Kylie denied having lip fillers, despite abundant evidence to the contrary).
So it stands to reason that she would chastise Kim for posting a pic from the days before she first went under the knife.
Kim seemed to mean no harm by posting the group photo, which she captioned, "Babies at Benihana."
But Kylie was understandably not a fan of the pic, taken in 2009, when she was just 12 years old.
"Delete this immediately," the makeup mogul commented.
Was she joking? Very likely.
But she probably really would have preferred that the photo not be posted for Kim's massive Instagram audience.
Plus, her older sister went on pour salt in the wound by reminding Kylie of an embarrassing incident from her more recent past.
"Should I Diddy crop you out?" Kim replied.
"Absolutely," Kylie answered.
That's a reference to a 2017 mini-scandal in which Diddy cropped Kylie and Kendall out of a group photo!
Not exactly Kylie's proudest moment, so this one post turned into a sort of double-diss for the young billionaire.
The pic and the exchange in the comments were enough to revive a rumor about an intense rivalry between Kylie and Kim.
Is it really playing out in passive-aggressive fashion right in the open on Instagram?
Whatever the case, fans had a field day remarking on Kim's apparent shade-throwing,
"Why she do that to her sisters lol," one commenter wrote.
"Kim knows she looks good but her sisters [laughing emojis] that’s why she posted it," another added.
"Kourtney the only one that looks the same," a third chimed in.
Yes, Kourtney isn't even in the photo and somehow she came out of this situation on top.
Now that's winning!
Believe it or not, this one photo ignited a second controversy that folks are still hashing out in the comments section.
Kim stands accused of re-touching the pic and passing it off as an unedited throwback.
Some say she only lightened it, while others insist that she also messed with Kylie and Kendall's noses.
There's no denying that the two images (the original and the one that appeared on Kim's page this week) look different -- but would Kim really go so far as to alter a photo when the whole point of posting it was to show how her family used to look?
It sounds crazy -- but we wouldn't put it past her.
After all, pissing off a 23-year-old billionaire sounds crazy too, but Kim went right ahead and did that!
In recent weeks, rumors that Kim Kardashian is preparing to divorce Kanye West have been circulating non-stop.
Insiders say the incident in which West peed on a Grammy and railed against some of the brands and industry titans who helped to make him famous was the final straw for Kim, who is now just waiting for the right time to break the news to her troubled husband.
Those who know the couple best say that Kim and Kanye have been living separate lives since before the pandemic, and far from bringing them closer together, the global health crisis has only exacerbated the divisions between them.
Kim, of course, has yet to comment on the situation, but many fans believe her recent social media updates speak volumes about her mental state.
The latest to spark concern among fans is a post from Kim's Instagram Story that appeared in the wee hours of Monday morning.
It seems the ultra-busy 39-year-old was unable to get much sleep, so she turned to her followers for advice.
"Do I get a head start on my workout or try to go back to sleep?" Kim asked.
Shortly thereafter, she revealed that she had decided to do some studying.
As you may recall, Kim is working to become a lawyer, opting for a four-year internship in a San Francisco law firm over traditional law school.
Some might say the mother of four has a bit too much on her plate these days, but Kim doesn't seem like the type to slow down when the going gets rough.
After her study session, she joined Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson for an early morning workout.
She labeled a pic of the team's sneakers with "early bird special."
And where was Kanye during Kim's bout of insomnia?
Well, his whereabouts are currently unknown, but he's believed to be holed up at his ranch in Wyoming.
Insiders tell Page Six in no uncertain terms that Kim is still "planning to divorce" Kanye.
"Kim has the whole divorce planned out but she's waiting for him to get through his latest episode," says one source close to the situation.
The informant adds that Kim is "deeply disappointed" in her troubled husband as he "refuses to stick to his care plan," which was designed by his medical team to control the symptoms of his bipolar disorder.
"It’s a vicious cycle that Kim has had success at interrupting successfully for months at a time," the source says.
"It's the same thing over and over and over again."
The insider adds that Kim feels awful about taking steps toward ending her marriage while Kanye is enduring a mental health episode, but she feels she has no choice, as she has to make the health and safety of her children her top priority.
"He's on very thin ice with her right now, and she's truly trying to decide what to do to protect the kids, but also her own sanity," says the insider.
"The whole thing is discouraging and difficult for her."
Sources say it's not a matter of if Kim will leave her husband, but when.
Her biggest concerns reportedly have nothing to do with money and property, and everything to do with Kanye's mental health and the welfare of her children.
Insiders say Kim is hoping that the couple's iron-clad prenup will lead to a smooth and uncontested divorce.
But knowing Kanye's penchant for high drama, we wouldn't be surprised if this situation turns ugly in a hurry.
It's the end of a very impressive, influential and, at times, quite grating era.
Kiim Kardashian announced on Tuesday afternoon that Keeping Up with the Kardashians will come to an end at the conclusion of Season 20.
The legendary series will return on September 17 with a new round of episodes and then air its concluding run at some point in 2021.
"It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to Keeping Up with the Kardashians," said the family in an unexpected statement.
"After what will be 14 years, 20 seasons, hundreds of episodes and several spin-off shows, we've decided as a family to end this very special journey."
Concluded the farewell message:
"We are beyond grateful to all of you who've watched us for all of these years—through the good times, the bad times, the happiness, the tears, and the many relationships and children.
"We'll forever cherish the wonderful memories and countless people we've met along the way."
Kim went on to thank producer Ryan Seacrest, the Bunim/Murray production team and E! for spending “countless hours documenting our lives” over the years.
“Our last season will air early next year in 2021,” the KKW Beauty founder added.
“Without Keeping Up With the Kardashians, I wouldn’t be where I am today. I am so incredibly grateful to everyone who has watched and supported me and my family these past 14 incredible years.
"This show made us who we are and I will be forever in debt to everyone who played a role in shaping our careers and changing our lives forever."
No specific reason was given for pulling the plug on the program next year - but it's pretty easy to understand the decision.
Last season, eldest sibling Kourtney expressed constant frustration with the show and often threatened to quit for good.
Kim has shifted her focus to prison reform and other areas of social justice and has a mentally ill husband to care for.
Kylie has a beauty empire of her own and no need for the series anymore, while Kendall has never been a huge fan of the spotlight.
Khloe, for her part, appears to be back together with Tristan Thompson and we could maybe see her angling for a spinoff ...
... not that we're being cynical or anything.
... but none of these follow-up programs has ever been a success.
Since the series’ debut, there have been 12 spinoffs at E!:
- Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami
- Kourtney and Kim Take New York
- Kourtney and Kim Take Miami
- Kourtney and Khloe Take the Hamptons
- Khloe and Lamar
- Sex with Brody
- I Am Cait
- DASH Dolls
- Life of Kylie
- Rob & Chyna
- Revenge Body with Khloe Kardashian
- Flip It Like Disick
Meanwhile, E! also released a statement in response to this development as it prepares to say goodbye to one of its ratings juggernauts.
Along with all of you, we have enjoyed following the intimate moments the family so bravely shared by letting us into their daily lives.
While it has been an absolute privilege and we will miss them wholeheartedly, we respect the family’s decision to live their lives without our cameras.
It is not our final goodbye yet, we are excited to have the new season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians launching on September 17 with the final season airing in 2021.
We thank the entire extended family and our production partners, Bunim Murray and Ryan Seacrest Productions for embarking on this global phenomenon together.
So there you have it.
It's the end of an error, um, era, and one that has left an indelible mark on popular culture and modern entertainment forever.
Say what you will about this family and the transparently scripted nature of what the show became over its past few years.
But one cannot deny the impact that the now-iconic Keeping Up with the Kardashians has had on television in general.
It will be missed.
Regardless of whether or not Kanye West is running for president, the rapper's mental state is currently under about as much scrutiny as the intellectual faculties of the two men who are most likely to be elected to the White House in November.
The reason for this is simple and serious:
Kanye suffered a bipolar breakdown in July that saw him publicly lashing out at his wife and in-laws, all of whom supported him unconditionally during previous such episodes.
All of this came on the heels of a very different set of concerns about West's health.
In a recent interview, Kanye revealed that he had contracted COVID-19 and claimed that he was able to cure himself through the power of positive thinking.
Despite enduring two deeply troubling crises in a row -- both of which might be the result of his ongoing struggle with mental illness -- Kanye decided to host one of his "Sunday Service" gospel concerts in Wyoming this week.
His wife, Kim Kardashian, was the first to tease the performance, tweeting, “Guess what’s back?!?!”
Amid concerns about the massive crew that participated in Kanye's comeback show, West dubiously claimed that everyone involved was kept safe from the 'rona.
“We would like to thank our staff for making sure all Covid safety guidelines were followed today during Sunday Service at our West Mountains family ranch in Wyoming,” he tweeted.
“We are beyond blessed to be able to share the love of Christ through worship #SUNDAYSERVICEISBACK.”
Despite Kanye's reassurances, fans were understandably concerned about his ability to ensure the safety of his staff.
After all, this is a guy who claims to have cured his own case of the virus by harnessing the power of brain magic.
So maybe his understanding of infectious diseases is a little less than complete.
Seeing the backlash against her husband -- who might want to consider taking a break from the public eye for a few months -- Kim decided to once again go to bat for the man who was accusing her of cheating with Meek Mill and threatening to divorce her just a few weeks ago.
"For anyone wondering, Kanye’s team took every precaution to ensure the choir’s health and safety which is always top priority," Kim tweeted.
"It was filmed today without an audience. The music will be shared soon for anyone who could use something uplifting."
Hopefully, someone informed Kim that checking into an in-patient treatment facility would be the most uplifting thing that Kanye could do at this point.
Anyway, her defense of her husband's latest attempt to rebrand himself as the 21st century's answer to Billy Graham serves as further evidence that Kim is planning to stand by her man.
Insiders close to the couple claim that Kim and Kanye "fixed" their marriage during a recent vacation in Colorado.
That's great and all, but it would be even better if Kanye found some sort of therapeutic activity that didn't involve risking the health of dozens or hundreds of people.
Maybe dude could take up knitting or something. Just sayin'.
Keeping Up with the Kardashians is about to return with new episodes.
The popular E! reality show is about to return with new episdoes, however, in a very different environment than the way it left off from many month ago.
Yes, sadly, we're talking about the coronavirus.
In a trailer for upcoming installments, Kim and company tackle this global pandemic head-on, especially when concerns crop up that one of the main cast members may have come down with it.
“Everybody in the world is talking about coronavirus,” Scott Disick says in the footage, which then cuts to Khloe Kardashian getting a COVID-19 test and Kim Kardashian chatting with a family member via FaceTime.
“I’m super worried that Khloé is so sick,” she says.
From there, the Good American founder is seen coughing while in bed, although viewers already know that Khloe tested negative for this virus.
As always, the episodes were filmed months ago and the 36-year old never told the public that she had COVID-19.
Still, the preview aims to make it clear that this pandemic has affected the family, as we see most members chatting from a distance from each other or even via Zoom or FaceTime.
They're just like everyone else in this regard over the past many, many, many weeks.
Elsewhere in the promo, Disick brings up what happened when he checked into a rehab facility this past April... and then both the information leaked and a photo of it from inside the building leaked.
“There couldn’t have been a bigger betrayal,” he says in the clip. “She leaked me being there to the press.”
To whom is Disick referring here? That's the major question.
Then on a Zoom call with Kim, Khloe, Kris Jenner and Rob Kardashian, he adds: “I don’t trust anybody here.”
And then elsewhere in the promo... we get a glimpse at Tristan Thompson!
Despite Khloe recently saying her relationship with her baby daddy is no one's business, it's evident here that she's maintaining at least some kind of relationship with her ex, months after his cheating scandal with Jordyn Woods.
But is it romantic in nature?
"Why couldn't you be that when we were together?" she asks him in one scene.
The promo concludes with Kim and Kourtney Kardashian scrambling to leave Paris after Kanye West's fashion show in early March -- once again, also due to COVID-19.
"Paris might go on lockdown," Kim says. "We're going to have to leave Kourtney!"
(SPOILER ALERT: they do not leave Kourtney. She makes it back to America.)
As for whether Kim's marital problems with Kanye will be addressed? We can't say for certain.
However, look for increased screen time for Rob Kardashian.
"He's is filming more," she told People Magazine, adding this summer:
"We're filming more within our homes, and he is right there with us. I'm excited for everyone to see that. He's such a good person and I'm just happy he's coming back around on camera a little bit more."
Keeping Up with the Kardashians returns September 17 at 8/7c ET on E!
Will you be tuning in?????
Pro-Tip: if you want to wrongly convicted, pick a name that isn’t “C-Murder.” Even if you’re the world’s biggest crow enthusiast that is a name that is just begging to be locked up for a crime you didn’t commit.
Which is exactly what to C-Murder, the brother of Master P, who was sentenced to life in prison nearly 20 years ago for murder. See, I don’t think this would have happened to Corey the Innocent Guy or C-Kitten Hugger. Those are the kinds of nicknames you want when you’re accused of murder.
In the past couple of years, witnesses in the case have recanted their testimony and claimed they were pressured into giving testimony. The dude got railroaded here.
Luckily for him, Kim Kardashian is on the case. It’s weird to say that sentence and mean it unironically, but Kim is following in her father’s footsteps and has been working with The Innocence Project to get the convictions of innocent people overturned. She’s mostly done this by using her superpower of being famous to get people in power to listen to her.
C-Murder is obviously happy to have her on his side.
All joking aside, The Innocence Project does good work and Kim using her celebrity to get innocent people out of jail is one of the best things she could do with it. The foundational principle of justice is it’s better for 100 guilty men to walk free than for one innocent man to be imprisoned, and they’re protecting that ideal.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West haven’t thrown in the towel on their marriage just yet.
TMZ reports that the couple and their kids are finally all together in one place after being apart for months, but there’s a catch: they’ve flown to a private island to avoid the paparazzi.
Sources with direct knowledge tell TMZ, the fam is staying in what is described as a “fortress” … an estate that is so remote it’s virtually impossible for trespassers to get close.
I’m picturing this thing being inside a volcano-shaped like a skull, making this the final step in Kanye’s transformation for ordinary narcissist to Dr. Doom. He already refers to himself in the third person a lot, and I can see him hiring Elon Musk to make Kanyebots to handle mental tasks and fool that accursed Richards, although Musk’s robots would probably fall apart if they get wet.
I hope these two crazy kids work things out, because what am I going to write about if they separate and there’s no more drama? I can’t count on Ellen DeGeneres to maul a poor person every day. I mean, I guess I could, no one would be surprised if she did at this point.
The post Kanye West and Kim Kardashian Trying to Save Marriage on Island Fortress appeared first on The Blemish.
Amid Kanye West's latest bipolar meltdown, Kim Kardashian flew to Wyoming last week, where the rapper has been holed up at his ranch in the remote town of Cody.
The trip did not go smoothly.
Kim only stayed for a day, during which time, she and Kanye were photographed arguing in a car.
In pics obtained by TMZ, Kim is in tears, while Kanye is, by turns, gesturing wildly or responding to his wife's pain -- which he, of course, caused -- with callous indifference.
Kim returned from Wyoming without Kanye, and many assumed she would begin divorce proceedings upon returning to LA.
But it seems the mother of four is not quite ready to give up on her marriage.
According to a new report from UK tabloid The Sun, Kim made a return trip to Cody this week, and this time, she brought reinforcements.
Kim was joined on her private flight by "hipster pastor" (The Sun's words, not ours) Rich Wilkerson.
Wilkerson officiated Kim and Kanye's wedding ceremony in 2014, and he's reportedly remained an influential force in West's life ever since.
Insiders say Kim is hoping that Wilkerson can convince Kanye to check into an in-patient treatment facility.
A source says the three of them will leave Kanye's ranch so that they can discuss matters someplace more private and secluded than ... rural Wyoming.
"Kim and Kanye's trip isn't a romantic holiday," says one insider, giving new meaning to "stating the obvious."
"It's more of a chance for them to reconnect away from the chaos of Wyoming, the hangers on who surround Kanye and the audience of their entourage," the source adds.
As if the phrase "the chaos of Wyoming" wasn't enough to underscore how bizarre this situation has become, Kim apparently considered bringing her mother, despite the fact that Kanye recently accused Kris Jenner of being a white supremacist.
"Kim wanted to bring her mom but didn't want Kanye to feel like he was being pressured," a separate source claims.
"She's planning to fly Rich Wilkerson Jnr, their pastor who married them, out with his wife - or if Kanye is resistant, to video call him. He's someone Kanye trusts," the insider adds.
"He's been a constant in Kim and Kanye's lives and he's a friend of the family. Kim is hoping an intervention will help Kanye."
The move by Kim has been described as a "last-ditch effort," and many onlookers continue to believe the couple is headed for divorce.
Over the weekend fans thought they spotted a glimmer of hope when Kim posted throwback photos from her wedding dress fitting.
Sadly, it seems she did so not in fond remembrance of the wedding itself, but as a tribute to designer Ricardo Tisci on his birthday.
Rumors about Kim and Kanye getting divorced have been circulating more or less since the day they got married, but never before has the couple seemed so close to the precipice.
It's a testament to Kim's commitment to her family that she's even attempting to save this marriage after all the horrendous things Kanye has said about her in recent weeks (including allegations that she cheated on him with Meek Mill).
But it's a safe bet that if the pastor's intervention isn't effective, Kim will do what she needs to do to protect her children, whicn will probably mean ending her marriage.
Kanye West almost dropped his run for President in a way that let him retain some dignity. Because he started on a whim, Kanye probably won’t be on the ballot in enough states to actually be the president even if he were to win every state he’s running in. That’s not the sort of thing that’s worth blowing up your marriage over.
But boy has Kanye blown his marriage up over this bullshit. I mean, I know that Kanye is in the middle of a mental health crisis, but still. As an aside don’t you think it’s kind of fucked up that if you’re rich and in the middle of a mental health episode you can get on the ballot as a presidential candidate in several swing states?
Page Six is reporting that a source close to the Kardashians told them that Kim said this whole affair has been “a nightmare.”
A source said, “Kim begged Kanye to stop his presidential thing, to stop talking about their kids at rallies. But he ignored her and instead he went ahead and hired more people . . . and tried to register in more states. He just won’t stop this presidential bulls–t.”
The source claimed, “This is a nightmare for Kim, she is looking for a way out. But she’s also a nice person and wants to do the best for her kids.”
We’ve been hearing a lot of Kanye and Kim divorce rumors, but I still don’t know what to think of them. They’re pretty persistent, but if you wanted to sound like you knew what you were talking about you’d say Kanye West’s spouse wants to divorce him. Come on, that’s a safer bet than Pete Rose not making the Hall of Fame ballot.
Of course Kim denied it once again through a rep.
A rep for Kardashian said, “This is not true.”
Simple, straightforward. I don’t buy it. Everyone watches Kanye West and says “If I was his wife and I was independently wealthy I would totally leave that dude.”

Looks like Kim Kardashian had her share of Kanye West, McDonald’s and Walmarts.
Kardashian is back in Los Angeles after flying out to see Kanye and his presidential campaign this past Sunday. Let’s see, it’s Wednesday. Three days of Kanye, yeah, that’s about all someone could handle.
It’s been rough for Kardashian. In an Instagram story, she wrote a huge post about Kanye’s bipolar disorder and how we should be more understanding.
“I understand Kanye is subject to criticism because he is a public figure and his actions at times can cause strong opinions and emotions…He is a brilliant but complicated person who on top of the pressures of being an artist and a black man, who experienced the painful loss of his mother, and has to deal with the pressure and isolation that is heightened by his bi-polar disorder. Those who are close with Kanye know his heart and understand his words some times do not align with his intentions.”
This supposedly has left Kardashian frazzled, which, no s**t? People says she’s “hysterically crying,” “hurt,” and “emotionally exhausted.” Not sure I believe that. Of course, it’s very trying for her. But I just think she’s very strong mentally. At least stronger than someone who cries “hysterically.”
Kanye apologized for his comments recently, not sure if Kim accepted.
I would like to apologize to my wife Kim for going public with something that was a private matter. I did not cover her like she has covered me. To Kim I want to say I know I hurt you. Please forgive me. Thank you for always being there for me.
They’ll divorce in less than two years. That’s my guess. At some point, the Jenners and Kardashians will calculate how much Kanye is ruining their brand and cut him loose.
The post Kim Kardashian Back Home From Wyoming After Dealing With Kanye West appeared first on The Blemish.
I generally read too much into someone crying while fighting with their spouse because honestly, couples fight and sometimes that causes crying even if it’s not that bad a fight. I myself am a huge cryer, I cry just at the drop of a hat at like, TV shows and. Lives and all sorts of dumb s**t, so of course I cry when I have a fight with my partner.
That’s why I wouldn’t assume Kim Kardashian crying while she was talking to her husband Kanye West on Monday as People reported means anything in particular. Kanye called Kim a white supremacist, told the entire world they almost aborted their first child and decreed that Kim’s mom Kris Jenner wasn’t allowed around his kids anymore, of course she’s going to be upset. Crying is probably a better sign for their relationship than the screaming and foul language he’d have gotten if he had pulled that s**t with me.
People talked to a source close to the couple.
A source tells PEOPLE that “as soon as Kim got to the ranch, she and Kanye came out together in his car.”
“Kim is hysterically crying,” the source says, adding that “Kim hasn’t seen Kanye for weeks.”
“She is very emotional about everything, and also exhausted,” the source says. “She feels very hurt by Kanye. She has tried to reach him multiple times and he just ignores her. ”
“It’s all a bad situation,” the source adds.
“She decided to fly to Cody to speak to him in person. She doesn’t want to be ignored anymore.”
Now, I said not to read too much into the crying, and that screaming would have been a worse sign, but People still insists the couple is headed for a divorce.
“There has been enough communication, both in the past few days and in the weeks prior, to establish that both sides feel the marriage is over,” a source with knowledge of the situation told PEOPLE last week, adding that discussions of divorce have been “a long time coming.”
If Kim Kardashian left Kanye, I think we’d all understand. I’d have left him right about the time he jumped up on stage with Taylor Swift at the VMAs.
Now, I know what you’re thinking: Kanye and Kim didn’t start dating until 2011 and he jumped on stage with Taylor Swift in 2009. Yeah, you’re right, which means Kim had all the information she needed to not date Kanye. That Fishdicks episode of South Park was on in 2009, too, she really doesn’t have any excuse.
The post Kim Kardashian Was in Tears While She Talked With Kanye West in Wyoming appeared first on The Blemish.
Kim Kardashian has been bending over backwards to protect Kanye West’s career and good name while he’s been in the midst of a manic episode. Kanye has not been making this easy for her by doing things like tell everyone they almost aborted North and calling her a white supremacist who was trying to have him involuntarily committed.
Now Kanye has apologized to his wife. Let’s read.
I would like to apologize to my wife Kim for going public with something that was a private matter.
I did not cover her like she has covered https://t.co/A2FwdMu0YU Kim I want to say I know I hurt you. Please forgive me. Thank you for always being there for me.

Is it just me, or does this come across like his mom is pulling him by the ear and saying “well, go on” while he sort of mumbles it out?
Kanye West needs help. He doesn’t seem like he’s going to hurt himself at the moment, but the other pole in “bipolar” is depression and that is going to happen and he’s not going to want to be alone for that. His biggest problem is that on top of being bipolar, he’s also an asshole.
It’s nice that he’s making an effort to make things better, but if I were Kim I would make Kanye massively kiss my massive ass when his episode is over.

Justin Bieber and Kanye West are besties. Bieber headed out to Wymoing to visit our future president, Kanye West. West tweeted a photo of Damon Dash and Biber, presumably talking about interior design, judging by the caption.

Kanye’s tweet read “DD & JB discussing the new spray foam wall prototypes on the YZY campus” and showed the two sitting side by side with their backs to the camera
This “YZY Campus“, which I never really looked into, is in Wyoming and sits on 4,000 acres. West calls it “West Lake Ranch”. Supposedly, it’ll have newer versions of his Calabasas domes, alternative energy sources and in general, deal with increasing sustainability. I could explain further, but I’m not looking to get into Kanye’s mind too deep.
When he’s not stopping off at the local Wyoming Walmart, Kanye, as you know, has been running for president. He’s been saying crazy stuff like calling Kim Kardashian a white supremacist and accusing her of cheating on him with Meek Mill.
Kim Kardashian has been very understanding of Kanye and his bipolar disorder, posting a long essay about how we should be more accepting of people with these conditions. At the same time, Kim’s gotta look out for herself. Probably why she’s been consulting with divorce lawyers, just in case.
Kanye is like one really long Britney Spears umbrella freakout.
Look out, folks.
Pigs may soon come flying outside your window. Cows may come home any second.
Really, anything could happen at all... because Kanye West has seemingly realized the error of his ongoing ways.
Amid a flurry of divorce rumors, and days after he ranted first on stage about his wife and then on social media about the state of his marriage, Kanye has issued an apology.
"I would like to apologize to my wife Kim for going public with something that was a private matter," the artist Tweeted on Saturday.
"I did not cover her like she has covered me," he added, concluding as follows:
"To Kim I want to say I know I hurt you. Please forgive me. Thank you for always being there for me."
Even by Kanye West standards, the past week or so has been a roller coaster ride.
FIRST, he held a Presidential campaign rally in South Carolina, during which he told all listeners that he wanted to terminate Kim's first pregnancy,
"She was crying… and for one month and two months and three months, we talked about her not having this child. She had the pills in her hand," West said in front of supporters.
THEN, Kanye taunted Kim by saying she wanted to have him locked up on a mental institution.
"Kim was trying to fly to Wyoming with a doctor to lock me up like on the movie Get Out because I cried about saving my daughters life yesterday," he wrote on Twitter after the South Carolina diatribe.
FROM THERE, West told the world that he's been trying to divorce Kardashian for two years.
As documented in detail below, Kanye has been airing the couple's dirty laundry to an extent never seen before.
And he's been doing it all while rumors of Kim meeting with divorce attorneys and considering a legal split from her famous husband continue to make the rounds.
Kim has yet to publicly weigh in on Kanye's apology.
But his recent ramblings prompted her to make her first-ever lengthy statement this week in response to West's mental health struggles.
"As many of you know, Kanye has bipolar disorder," Kardashian said on Wednesday.
"Anyone who has this or has a loved one in their life who does, knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand."
"I've never spoken publicly about how this has affected us at home because I am very protective of our children and Kanye's right to privacy when it comes to his health.
"But today, I feel like I should comment on it because of the stigma and misconceptions about mental health.
In November of 2016, West was hospitalized after suffering an emotional breakdown. It's not a secret that he's been diagnosed as bipolar.
"Those that understand mental illness or even compulsive behavior know that the family is powerless unless the member is a minor," wrote Kim on Instagram.
"People who are unaware or far removed from this experience can be judgmental and not understand that the individual themselves have to engage in the process of getting help no matter how hard family and friends try.
"I understand Kanye is subject to criticism because he is a public figure and his actions at time can cause strong opinions and emotions."
In a very well-written message, Kardashian went on:
"He is a brilliant but complicated person who on top of being an artist and a black man, who experienced the painful loss of his mother, and has to deal with the pressure and isolation that is heightened by his bi-polar disorder.
"Those who are close with Kanye know his heart and understand his words sometimes do not align with his intentions.
"Living with bi-polar disorder does not diminish or invalidate his dreams and his creative ideas, no matter how big or unobtainable they may feel to some."
To conclude, Kim wrote:
"That is part of his genius and as we have all witnessed, many of his dreams have come true.
"We as a society talk about giving grace to the issue of mental health as a whole, however we should also give it to the individuals who are living with it in times when they need it the most.
"We as a society talk about giving grace to the issue of mental health as a whole, however we should also give it to the individuals who are living with it in times when they need it the most."
As of this writing, Kim is in Los Angeles with her kids -- while Kanye is in Wyoming, where a select handful of famous friends (Dave Chappelle, Justin Bieber) have paid him a visit.
