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.

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.”
The post Kim Kardashian Allegedly Thinks Kanye West is Being a ‘Nightmare’ appeared first on The Blemish.
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.

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.

By now, you've probably heard about Kanye West's latest Twitter tirade, which looks as though it might result in the end of his marriage to Kim Kardashian.
Yes, Kim-Kanye divorce rumors have been circulating for years, but this latest round is different.
This time, it's hard to imagine that the couple will be able to make their way back from West's claims and get to a healthy place in their relationship.
To be fair, Kim and others have stated that Kanye is in the midst of a bipolar episode, and there's a good chance he doesn't mean much of what he's saying.
Still, news that Kim has met with a divorce lawyer doesn't come as much of a surprise.
Kanye said some profoundly hurtful things during his latest tirade, and Kim might feel that she has no choice but to end her marriage for the sake of her children.
The trouble started on Sunday, when Kanye hosted an event for his presidential campaign in Charleston, South Carolina.
During a tearful hourlong speech, West informed the crowd that Kim nearly had an abortion while she was pregnant with the couple's first child, North West.
He also said that he believed Kim might divorce him for making such private information public.
Instead, Kardashian visited the rapper at his ranch in Cody, Wyoming, where -- according to Kanye -- she tried to place him under a 5150 psychiatric hold.
Again, Kanye made the incident public in a bitter tirade, this time on Twitter:
“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 daughter’s life yesterday,” he tweeted on Monday, July 20.
“If I get locked up like Mandela Y’all will know why.”
Late Tuesday night, West went on another Twitter rant, this time accusing Kim of cheating on him with rapper Meek Mill during a 2018 forum on criminal justice reform.
Reps for Kim have since confirmed that Kim and Meek both attended the forum, but they say it was a public event, and the two of them were never alone together.
Now, Meek has addressed the rumor, as well, tweeting:
"Sh-t is cappp cmon ...."
"Cap" is common slang or lie, and Mill seems to be suggesting that West's claims are dishonest.
Kanye has yet to reply to Meek's rebuttal.
Meanwhile, Kim asked for compassion as she and her husband confront the biggest crisis of their six-year marriage.
"As many of you know, Kanye has bipolar disorder," she wrote, in a statement posted to her Instagram page.
"Those that understand mental illness or even compulsive behavior know that the family is powerless unless the member is a minor," she continued.
"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.
Our thoughts go out to Kim and her family during this difficult time, and we hope Kanye is able to find whatever kind of help he needs.
I’ve always mostly thought of Kim Kardashian as being the world’s richest and least-hard-working porn star, but I have a newfound respect for her after watching how she’s handled her husband Kanye West’s latest extended mental episode.
Kim released a statement on her Instagram story, which is probably what Kanye was referring to when he said she was making a statement without his approval and that’s not what a wife should do. Here’s what she said, via People.
“As many of you know, Kanye has bi-polar disorder,” she began. “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.”
“Those that understand mental illness or even compulsive behavior know that the family is powerless unless the member is a minor,” she said. “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,” she continued. “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. That is part of his genius and as we have all witnessed, many of his dreams have come true,” she wrote. “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. I kindly ask that the media and public give us the compassion and empathy that is needed so that we can get through this. Thank you for those who have expressed concern for Kanye’s well-being and for your understanding.”
Imagine having your husband publicly calls you a whore who wants her 7-year-old daughter to pose for Playboy, that he wants a divorce, demand you quit your job to move to Wyoming and decreeing your mother can’t see your kids anymore and this being your response. You think Amber Heard would have responded like this?
People also had comments from a Kardashian “insider” with knowledge of how Kim is handling all of this.
“She was most upset that [Kanye] said that Kris isn’t allowed around the kids,” the source said. “Nothing could be further from the truth. Kris is an important part of the kids’ lives and Kim loves the bond they have. She’s 100 percent allowed around the kids.”
It seems like there’s a misunderstanding here, Kanye wasn’t saying that Kris hasn’t been allowed around the kids, he was decreeing that Kris no longer to be around the kids, which Kim has clearly ignored, and good on her for doing so.
“She feels that it’s disrespectful, not only to her, but her family. She feels that she has been nothing but respectful to him throughout their marriage. She has stood beside him again and again, no matter how ridiculous it seemed. And if she didn’t like what he was doing or if she disagreed with the things he said, she kept her mouth shut,” the source said. “She’s at the end of her rope and trying to decide what to do next.”
This isn’t wrong, Kim didn’t say anything about Kanye holding church services or building that weird beehive housing thing with no permit, and he’s telling her how to dress and act even when he’s not having a manic episode.
Also, about Kanye’s subtle allegations that Kim cheated on him with Meek Mill, TMZ reported the meeting about prison reform was attended by more people aside from Meek Mill and Kardashian and was at Jean-Georges, a restaurant located in the Waldorf Astoria, not in a hotel room.

When Dave Chappelle went to check on Kanye West yesterday, he should have stuck around a little longer. After flying all the way to Wyoming and making sure his friend was okay, that friend started tweeting 12 hours later about how he wants to divorce his wife, who he also called a white supremacist and accused her of cheating on him with Meek Mill.
Kanye referring to himself as the future president might be the most delusional thing the man has ever said, and that list is not short. Of course, I would have said the same thing about Donald Trump so what do I know.
Now, I think there are two things going on with Kanye West right now. One is that he appears to still be experiencing a manic episode. The other is that even since Kanye got religious he’s been a huge asshole.
People will say that religion makes you a better person, and that is hogwash. Kanye has reportedly been overbearing and patriarchal with Kim, complaining that her lifestyle and image conflict with his newfound Christian morality and insisting she change. Just last night he was demanding she give up her TV shows to live with him in Wyoming.
And I have some bad news for Kanye about his “I’m worth five billion and more with Jesus” thing; if Jesus was real he’d hate you, Kanye. Jesus said that “it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God” to a young rich man after telling him if wanted to be saved he should sell all his possessions and give all his money to the poor.
Now, are there religious people who are good people? Sure, of course there are. Kanye West isn’t one of them. Kanye West has always been an asshole and religion is just a new way for him to be an asshole. It’s just another thing he does that makes him think he’s better than everyone else, and it’s going to cost him his family because if you think any judge is going to give him custody after this incident, you’re crazier than Kanye.

Angelina Pivarnick has been in the news a lot this week.
Primarily, that's because she might have single-handedly killed the Jersey Shore franchise by overreacting to her friends' speech at her wedding.
But we'd like to propose that Angeliner is newsworthy for a reason that has nothing to do with her nuptial tantrum:
Namely, she's looking more and more like Kim Kardashian every day.
Yes, Vinny might still think of her as the Rob Kardashian of Staten Island, but Angelina is looking more and more like Mrs. West every day.
Don't believe us?
Take a look at the pics below and see if you can tell them apart.
It might not be as easy as you think ...
1. Ange or Kim?
2. Does the Tatt Give It Away?
3. Who's Angry?
4. Iconic Figure
5. Give 'Em the Lip
6. Physique on Fleek
Kanye West is kind of a handful. I mean, really, I find the dude exhausting and I just see him on TV. Can you imagine living with him? A normal person would be clawing their eyes out. Apparently, so would Kim Kardashian, because The Sun is reporting that Kim feels like she needs to get the hell away from Kanye before she divorces him.
“Things are tough between Kim and Kanye because they never normally spend this much time together, but she doesn’t want a divorce,” says the insider.
“She considers her marriage to Kanye and their family together a huge success – she’s the only sister who is married and thinks of herself and Kanye as a power couple.
“The last thing she wants is a divorce – especially because the public backlash after her second divorce was unbearable.
“What I think will happen is they’ll spend time apart in different houses – but not divorce.”
That’s a good reason to stay together; if you don’t, your TV ratings might go down. And you’re a power couple, you’re like Jay-Z and Beyoncé except everyone hates you and you have to hang out with Donald Trump instead of Barack Obama.
On the other hand, Kanye has been uncharacteristically not terrible during the recent period of protests and unrest following the murder of George Floyd.
Kanye managed not being terrible by keeping his damn mouth shut for a change. I know, every brand in the country has weighed in, but Kanye has said absolutely nothing.
But then Kanye showed up Thursday night at a protest in Chicago and like other celebrities who have been protesting he didn’t make things about himself, he was just another person coming out to show solidarity.
Kanye also made a rather sizable donation to the family of George Floyd, as well the families of Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor, two other victims of police brutality.
I don’t actually think Kanye West is a bad person, and I think, like you see here, his heart is ultimately in the right place.
The post Kim Kardashian Reportedly Needs to Get Away From Kanye so She Doesn’t Divorce Him appeared first on The Blemish.
Steve Stanulis used to be Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s bodyguard, and now he’s an actor, director and producer. This means he’s out promoting a movie he made with Tara Reid called 5th Borough, and while he’s on the road he’s got a lot to say about his former bosses, something TMZ reports has lead Kim and Kanye to threaten him with a lawsuit. What sorts of things does he have to say, which the couple claim are false and defamatory?
If you missed it, Stanulis claimed Kanye had “ridiculous rules” — like walking 10 paces behind him on city streets, and claimed he got angry if Steve blocked a paparazzi shot. He also called Yeezy the “moodiest” and “neediest” celeb who’s hired him.
I mean, if that is false it’s the most plausible lie anyone has ever told. Why would you even make that up, it’s like making up a story about Harvey Weinstein being a sex pest, there are just so many examples to choose from that you’re just wasting your own time making up a fake one.
Stanulis told TMZ, through a representative, that they have no grounds to sue because this wasn’t a breech of his NDA since the information was already out there from when he breeched his NDA before.

It's been a difficult quarantine for Kim Kardashian.
This may be stating the obvious, considering how millions of people are basically stuck at home these days, but it seems especially true for the former Ray J sex tape co-star.
And here's why...
First, Kardashian paid tribute to her mother on social media -- by sharing a throwback photo of Kris Jenner and giving her props for having shed a lot of her pregnancy weight decades ago.
Yes, of all the attributes Kim chose to admire about her parent, this was the one she focued on:
Jenner's weight loss.
Pretty sad and pathetic, right?
Then, Kim faced a new round of criticism after she was accused of being racist in her latest promotion of shapewear line Skims.
On top of all this, there's been chatter that Kim and Kanye aren't getting along at all amid this Covid-19-based quarantine, fighting non-stop as they're forced to actually spend time together.
This may sound crazy, but think about it:
These superstars are often on the road for their job... and now they're actually under the same roof, with four young children, for weeks and weeks and weeks at a time.
That would be enough to drive many relationships all the way to the edge.
In the face of these rumors, meanwhile, Kim and Kanye rang in their sixth wedding anniversary.
On May 24, 2014, the pair exchanged vows in France.
And, based on what Kim just wrote on Instagram, despite what you may have read of late... they have every intention of sticking to these legal and romantic vows until the day they die.
"6 years down; forever to go Until the end," Kim wrote on Instagram, along with two throwback photos of her and the rapper.
Kris Jenner also commemorated their special day as follows:
"Happy Anniversary to these two!!! I love you guys!!!!! @kimkardashian #KanyeWest."
Kanye didn't say anything about the occasion, perhaps signaling that things are, indeed, rocky at home.
Or perhaps just being as quiet and mysterious as he typically is.
For their fifth wedding anniversary, West whisked his bride away to Las Vegas for a special trip to see Céline Dion in concert.
This took place just two weeks after the pair welcomed their fourth child, Psalm, into the world via surrogate.
Of their marriage, a source told People Magazine last year that "Kim and Kanye seem very happy," adding:
"They feel very proud about their marriage and they love being parents."
Kim Kardashian has taken to Twitter to slam Taylor Swift as a snake and a liar.
The former adult film star and the beloved singer first started feuding back in the summer of 2016... after Kim and husband Kanye West released snippets of a phone conversation between the rapper and Swift.
During this chat, Swift appeared to give West permission to reference her in his song "Famous."
After it came out, however, Swift complained about the way Kanye trashed her in this track.
The stars went back and forth and it got really annoying and we recapped the outbreak of this feud HERE.
Multiple times over the past couple years, both Kim and Taylor have referenced the rivalry, partly to put it behind them -- and partly to keep throwing shade at the other.
We really thought it over, though.
A lengthy video of Kanye talking to Taylor hit the Internet this week (below)... and now here we are again.
As you can see in this footage, Kanye and Swift do talk about the song and Taylor does say the part about West rapping about how his foe "owes" him "sex" is okay.
But Taylor never gives Kanye permission to trash her as a "bitch," which seems to be the real point of contention between the parties: Just what Swift was blessing during the phone call.
On Monday, meanwhile, Swift took to her Instagram stories to react to all the renewed interest in the beef between her and the Wests.
"Instead of answering those who are asking how I feel about video footage that was leaked, proving that I was telling the truth the whole time about *that call* (you know, the one that was illegally recorded, that somebody edited and manipulated in order to frame me and put me, my family, and fans through hell for 4 years)...
"Swipe up to see what really matters."
Swiping up prompted her followers to a donation page for the organization Feeding America.
Pretty great response, right? Swift got some digs in, while also hopefully raised some money for an important cause.
She posted a flood of tweets on Monday night defending herself against the singer and once again attacking Swift.
“To be clear, the only issue I ever had around the situation was that Taylor lied through her publicist who stated that ‘Kanye never called to ask for permission…’" wrote Kim.
"They clearly spoke so I let you all see that. Nobody ever denied the word ‘bitch’ was used without her permission."
At the time when they spoke the song had not been fully written yet, but as everyone can see in the video, she manipulated the truth of their actual conversation in her statement when her team said she 'declined and cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message.
Back in 2016, Taylor's rep told E! News in a statement (which does reflect Kim's aforementioned assertion):
"Kanye did not call for approval, but to ask Taylor to release his single 'Famous' on her Twitter account. She declined and cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message.
"Taylor was never made aware of the actual lyric, 'I made that bitch famous.'"
In response to Kardashian' most recent tweets, Swift’s rep shared her “UNEDITED original statement” on Twitter, as you can see above.
Elsewhere, Kim defended her husband’s “right to document his musical journey and process,” and said she would “never” have released the footage if Swift had not “forced me to defend him.”
She also vowed to finally shut the heck up about all this.
"This will be the last time I speak on this because honestly, nobody cares," Tweeted Kardashian, referencing the Coronavirus pandemic and concluding:
"Sorry to bore you all with this. I know you are all dealing with more serious and important matters.
We really are.
Which means the celebrity gossip world can serve as a nice distraction... but not by these two once again going at it online.
Instead, let's all donate to Feeding America.
And let's all distance ourselves socially, as well as emotionally from anything Kim or Taylor or Kanye says about all this nonsense.
If you remember when Kanye West first started dating Kim Kardashian, you’ll recall he just would not shut up about how beautiful and sexy she was and how much he loves her and she was absolutely not a hobbit.
Now, after six years of marriage, Kanye wouldn’t even kiss Kim on the kiss cam at the NBA All-Star game.
Yikes, that is just so awkward. I have two theories on what happened here.
the first one is that Kanye is so off in his own world and up his own asshole that when he saw a camera he literally forgot other people exist for a second. It seems likely, if you see the way he mugs for the camera and then smiles when Kim kisses him on the cheek.
My other theory is that Kanye has worms in his brain since he converted to Christianity and those worms told him that public displays of affection are sinful. Kanye has recently been on a kick of saying Kim, who is famous because he mom convinced her to sell a sex tape, dresses too sexy. If you want to put your wife in a burqa, you’re probably not going to want people to see you kiss her. Converts to religions are always the ones who take that shot way too far. No one becomes a Christian as an adult to only go to mass on Easter and Christmas.

Though reports say that Kim Kardashian may already be planning baby #5, she has her hands full with North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm.
But Kim has become increasingly convinced that Psalm is her late father, Robert Kardashian, reincarnated.
“My son, Psalm, is probably the happiest baby alive,” Kim gleefully reports about her youngest child.
“He’s always smiling,” she explains. “Always happy.”
“On our show, we showed that we were in Bali, and a woman, a blind medium, came up to me and said that I was going to have another son”
“And,” “it was gonna be my father reincarnated. No one knew … that I had a surrogate that was pregnant and that it was going to be a boy.”
“And then my baby nurse — I had to go out of town and I really needed her to come in,” Kim recalls.
She shares that her nurse was attending a baby shower, so Kim convinced her to take Psalm with her to the event.
“She brings him to the baby shower,” Kim explains, “and a woman comes up to her and said ‘Is this your son?”
According to Kim, the woman told her baby nurse: “I just have to tell you, please tell their mom that this is a family member of hers reincarnated.”
“Multiple people that have no idea [who she is] have come up to my baby to say that he’s, like, a family member reincarnated,” Kim explains.
When Psalm is with a nurse or a nanny, he is assumed to be just another baby. No one realizes that he’s Kim’s child.
“So my whole family all of the time thinks it’s my dad,” Kim shares.
It sounds like Psalm has big shoes to fill.
“And it’s so emotional … and close to him,” Kim says of how her family regards Psalm.
It’s not clear how serious her family members are about it, of course.
“And he’s left-handed,” Kim points out, “like my dad.”
It will certainly be interesting to see more of Psalm as he grows up.
“I don’t even know if I believe in reincarnation,” Kim confesses.
“But,” she says, “I do now!”
She then laughs, so it’s unclear how seriously she takes it.
Kim then expresses: “I want to believe it.”
Reincarnation may have been adopted by some New Age folks, but it is a sincerely held religious belief that dates back many millennia.
The belief comes in many forms. Some faiths believe that only humans reincarnate.
Others believe that there is a hierarchy of reincarnation across the animal kingdom.
Finally, there are faiths in which people believe that certain, rare individuals who are particularly divine are reborn to help future generations.
The Kardashian family is famously Christian, from Kris to Khloe and most aggressively, Kanye.
That said, a major factor of New Age belief is the syncretization of Christianity with external spiritual models and beliefs, from divination to reincarnation.
Kim and her family are of course entitled to believe whatever they wish.
That said, maybe people should avoid such talk around Psalm. Can you imagine the kind of pressure that a kid might feel as they grow up?
Critics would say that they already gave him a hard enough time by giving him that name.
It seems like a lifetime ago, but it’s important to remember that before Kim Kardashian let Ray J, a C-list celebrity, give it to her on camera, she was just the friend in the background to fellow porn star Paris Hilton.
Since then, Kardashian has kept herself busy making money any way she can. Now in a move that isn’t at all driven by an insatiable need for attention, she has announced that she wants to start her own law firm.
Honestly, it’s a little hard to follow, but if you pay attention to politics, or Kanye’s craziness, or Kardashian herself, you may have heard that Kanye and Kim have been working with the President on prison reform.
Now, Kim’s taking it a step further. Caitlyn Jenner told OK! magazine that Kim “wants to start her own law firm” and continue her work on prison reform.
I want so badly to believe that Kim is somehow using this as another way to promote her brand, but she just seems so damn sincere. At the Television Critics Association winter press tour, she said:
“There are times when I could be frustrated and studying really late and have to get up and wonder how [my dad] did it, having four kids and must’ve been going through some of the same things that I have gone through.
She went on to say:
“I’m raising four black children that could face a situation like any of the people that I help.”
It’s a crazy world we live in and it is entirely possible that a reformed porn star may just step into the role of an activist that makes a real difference in the world. What’s more likely is that she will spend most of her time pleading with a judge for house arrest for whatever Kanye did this time.
Kim Kardashian’s husband has gone like, all the way crazy recently but Kim hasn’t really changed. Kanye’s been trying to put her in a burqa to go with his new religious image, but she’s been having none of it.
Just look at the New Year gift she gave us on Instagram.
Yes! Feminism! Girl power!
Even her pajamas are doing a lot of work.
Thankfully, we’re still getting lots of the same Kim whose mom convinced her to be a porn star.

All hail the new queen of the KarJenner clan!
Yes, as you may know, Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner have been battling for social media supremacy for several years now, and this week, Kylie declared a major victory.
After gaining on Kim throughout 2019, Kylie is now the most popular member of her family ... at least on Instagram.
On Saturday, Kylie's followers totaled 156 million, edging out Kim's following of 155 million.
(Of course, Kylie follows 132 people to Kim's 14, but we don't think the ratio matters when the follower/followee gap is that wide.
For perspective, here's how the follower count breaks down for the rest of the family:
Kendall has a following of 120 million, Khloe follows with 102 million, and Kourtney comes in a distant third with just 85 million.
Despite being hailed as the social media genius, Kris Jenner boasts a paltry 31 million
Meanwhile, Rob Kardashian brings up the rear with just 1.1 million.
You might be tempted to throw Rob a pity like, but it's worth noting that he uses his account to sell socks and post revenge porn featuring his exes, so it's best to keep your distance.
So does any of this matter? Well, yes and no.
Social media basically made the Kardashians, and that's a fact they haven't forgotten.
Sources say Kim and company keep close watches on their follower counts, and they do take declines in popularity very seriously.
The Kim vs. Kylie feud has reportedly been an intense one, with 39-year-old Kim reportedly attaching major symbolic importance to the challenge from her 22-year-old upstart sister.
Insiders say Kim has been jealous of Kylie ever since the latter earned the title of world's youngest "self-made" billionaire.
The mother of four reportedly took the Instagram battle so seriously that she bought fake followers to keep up with Kylie -- but in the end, it just wasn't enough.
In addition to its symbolic importance, social media count can lead to big bucks from sponsored content.
Interestingly, Kendall leads the pack in that respect.
In fact, with earnings of $15.9 million in 2019 -- she reportedly charged $611,000 per sponsored post -- the runway model is one of the top earners on all of Instagram.
In other words, if you're one of those people who was hoping that the Kardashians would quietly go away in the 2020s, you're probably out of luck.
