Kim Kardashian has been married like, eight times, and I think everyone is really surprised that she couldn’t make it work with a massive narcissist who completely changed his entire worldview halfway through their marriage. And as sad as it is that Kim is getting divorced, it’s even sadder that Kanye West is clearly winning the break-up.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West had met a few times over the years, but what lead to them dating and eventually marrying is a rejected Comedy Central pilot Kanye and his friend Rhymefest produced called Alligator Boots. The show would have been something of an homage to The Muppet Show with a hip-hop edge featuring West and a puppet rapper called Pork Troy.
Kim Kardashian was in the pilot, playing Princess Leia in that metal bikini from Return of the Jedi. Kanye insisted on having Kim on the show after seeing her sex tape with Ray J.
West was the only human star in the original plan for the pilot, but he had an idea for a love interest. On The Muppet Show, a singer might juggle or an actor might dance; on Alligator Boots, Kanye wanted to dress up like a stormtrooper for a sketch with a costar clad as “slave Leia” from Return of the Jedi. And he had one very specific person in mind.
Kellison: Kanye came to me and said, “I want to put Kim Kardashian in the show.” Now, at that point, Kim Kardashian was known for only one thing—her sex tape with Ray J, which had just come out.
Kellison: When I first met Kanye, he was recording that song “Flashing Lights”—I walked into the studio and he was behind the control board, and this woman was singing one of the sections of the song. She goes, “How about that take?” And he was like, “I’m sorry, I missed it. Can you do it again?” He was watching the Kim Kardashian tape on his computer; it had come out that day, and that’s why he was distracted.
Isn’t that a great story about Kanye West, the same Kanye West who would later tell Kim to stop dressing so sexy? Yeah, they basically got married because he saw her having sex with her friend’s brother and thought “now that I’m producing a TV show, I can use my influence to get this relative unknown on-set and have sex with her myself.” You know who else had that thought? Harvey Weinstein. Maybe it is a good thing that Kanye found Jesus.
A few years later, Kim would be pregnant with the couple’s first child, North West. Kanye really named his first-born child North West, I feel like people forget that. They claimed at the time that North meant “highest power” and she was their North Star, but they later admitted they chose the name because Jay Leno made a joke about it.
Of course, Kanye would later say that he and Kim almost aborted North. He said this in public, during a speech for his presidential run which he honestly thought he was going to win despite not being on the ballot in a lot of states, being Kanye West and being the sort of person who talks about almost having aborted his eldest daughter during a campaign speech.
“The abortion culture teaches that the child isn’t a real soul,” said West, who suggested that was his mindset when Kardashian called him in 2012 crying and screaming after discovering she was pregnant with their first child. “It was my wife that said: ‘This is a soul.’”
He continued, “The scariest thing is she had the [abortion] pills… She had the pills in her hand,” putting them down when West had an epiphany due to his blinking computer screen.
Of course, there was a rumor Kim was pregnant a few years before the couple had North and then Kanye was complaining about the high price of abortions a little while after that, so…
Kanye telling everyone this story of how he and Kim almost aborted North, which devolved into right-wing nonsense about abortion being racist, is widely believed to be the thing that led to the couple’s divorce.
But Kanye seemed to want a divorce long before Kim. If you remember when he went crazier that normal last summer, Kanye called Kim and her mother Kris white supremacists and accused her of cheating on him with Meek Mill. Actually, it kind of sounds like he knew Kim wasn’t having an affair with Meek, but he just didn’t want her meeting with other men to discuss prison reform, which is a major issue for Kim but something Kanye doesn’t seem to care about at all. Either way just a perfect sign of a super-healthy relationship.
If you’re wondering what level of delusion Kanye was on at the time, he also said his message was from “the future president,” something I think we all know not only didn’t happen in 2020 but will never happen.
It takes a certain amount of unchecked ego to think you should be president, especially as a non-politician. A lot of people became involved in politics on a smaller level because they wanted to change things for the better in their community and they ended up getting elected to higher and higher offices; it still takes a certain overblown sense of self to think you should be the leader of an entire country, but when someone who’s never held public office suddenly says “I should be President,” that person is probably a full-on narcissist and will probably be pretty bad at it.
If you look at just how chaotic and poorly managed Kanye’s run for President was, you’ll know that the man should never be let anywhere near a public office in his life and that he’s probably pretty hard to be married with. He basically woke up one day, halfway through the presidential campaign, and said “I’d like to be President of the United States today. I’ll tell people I’ll bring prayer back to schools despite that being clearly unconstitutional.” And then he went out and kind of ran for president. Just like he kind of built concept low-income housing one time, and then had to tear it down because he didn’t get any building permits.
See, Kanye West does things. Specifically, he just does whatever he’s thinking about doing at the moment. Part of that is that he’s bipolar and people having manic episodes will just do weird s**t sometimes, and that’s fine. But Kanye also just doesn’t consider other people even when he’s not having a manic episode. If he wakes up and says “I want to make some ugly-as-s**t shoes and sell them for like $300,” he might just actually make some ugly-as-s**t shoes and sell them for $300.
But he also does things like wake up and say “I think I’m going to buy a ranch in Wyoming and move there whether my wife and kids come with me or not.” That’s really the decision that ended Kanye and Kim’s marriage.
“I just honestly can’t do this anymore. Why am I still in this place where I’m stuck for years? Like, he goes and moves to a different state every year,” Kardashian said. “I have to be, like, together so I can raise the kids. He’s an amazing dad, he’s done an amazing job.”
She added that West “deserves someone who will support his every move” and “go follow him all over the place and move to Wyoming.”
Now, we had heard a number of times that Kanye was desperate to keep his marriage to Kim intact, which makes sense when you consider how much he talks about Jesus these days.
For example, we heard in March, just after the couple announced their divorce officially, that Kanye was working on a plan to get Kim back, and that he hoped that having some space and co-parenting would bring them back together. And there was a story that when it dawned on Kanye that he and Kim were really getting divorced, he wasn’t doing well and was basically hoping they could get back together.
It doesn’t seem like any of that is actually true, though. In fact, Kanye is definitely winning the break-up.
Since the split, Kim has failed the First-Year Law Students’ Exam, which is her first hurdle in becoming a lawyer, not once but twice. Normally, if she fails a third time, she’ll lose any credit she’s gotten for her Law Office Study Program beyond the first year, but she may get a fourth try because of COVID-19 rules.
Students at an accredited law school aren’t required to take this test, which lasts seven hours and consists of four essay questions and 100 multiple-choice questions. It basically exists to make sure the law education you’re getting through reading the law or taking online courses is up to snuff.
And Kim failing isn’t really because she’s dumb, per se, because only about one in five people who take the FYLSE pass it. That said, I don’t think Kim Kardashian is going to turn out to be a secret genius.
Kanye West might actually be a secret genius, though. Well, I guess not secret, because he won’t shut up about how much a genius he is, but still. Kanye used a failed Comedy Central pilot to meet Kim Kardashian, who at the time was in her 20s and famous for being the hot chick with the big ass from the sex tape. He was the one who was sleeping with her when her ass broke the internet.
Today, Kim Kardashian is 40 years old and has had four kids. Kanye’s new girlfriend, Irina Shayk, looks a little bit like Kim but is younger and has only had one kid. That’s a baller move right there; get a woman to waste the best years of her life on you and then trade her in for a younger model during a worldwide pandemic while she’s struggling to accomplish her dreams even though she stood by you through every insane idea you had for a decade.
Most of the time when a relationship ends, you have a good person who is miserable and a bad person who’s happy. Just sayin’.
The post Kanye West is Absolutely Winning His Divorce From Kim Kardashian appeared first on The Blemish.
Keeping Up with the Kardashians finally caught up with real life on Thursday night.
Earlier this month, the iconic series airedd footage of Kim Kardashian breaking down of her failed marriage to Kanye West -- but that episode was filmed ages ago.
Before Kim even filed for divorce.
During part one of the show's reunion special this week, Andy Cohen hosted a gathering of family members that was recorded just a couple days ago.
In this case, long after Kim filed for divorce, as she cited "irreconcilable differences" between herself and the rapper in February.
Before delving into the end of this seven-year union, however, Kardashian was asked when/how she and Kanye first got together.
"I would say six months after my divorce with Kris Humphries, I called Kanye and I was like, 'You're not even going to call me to say I told you so?'
"And then we met up six months later, and from that first night, I knew it was over."
Which is to say, she knew she was smitten for life.
"My marriage with Kanye and my kids was, is so real and lots of love and that to me was like my first real marriage," Kim continued.
Alright then, Cohen pressed:
"If I asked you point blank, 'Why did your marriage not work?' what would you attribute it to?"
To her semi-credit, Kim answered the question.
But that doesn't mean she provided many specifics.
"I honestly don't think I would even say it here on TV, but it was not like, one specific thing that happened on either part," replied the mother of four.
"I think it was just a general difference of opinions on a few things that led to this decision. And, like, in no way would I want someone to think that I didn't give it my all, or not really try.
"You know, we have four kids. There's nothing that I think parents would want more than to see, or even kids want more, than to see their parents together.
"I grew up and I lived that myself."
Trouble allegedly started brewing just about a year ago, after Kanye announced his campaign for the Presidency and then went out and gave a number of speeches.
During his time on the trail, Kanye spilled a great deal of personal tea, revealing, for example, that he had wanted Kim to abort daughter North when she first told him she was pregnant.
The artist kept ranting and raving for months.
At one point, it got so bad that Kim released her first-ever statement in regard to her husband's mental health, acknowleding Kanye was sick and asking observers for "compassion."
There was then some sort of huge argument between the husband and wife in December -- and that was the final straw.
Kardashian refuses to trash talk her estranged husband, however, telling Cohen they now have an "amazing" co-parenting relationship and adding:
"I respect him so much and you know, that was my friend first, first and foremost, for a long time, so I can't see that going away.
"I will forever be Kanye's biggest fan. He's the father of my kids, Kanye will always be family."
With Kanye dating Irina Shayk, the reunion then turned to Kim's love life.
"Could you see yourself dating a non-celebrity?" Andy asked.
"Yeah, absolutely. Just someone that I think would understand what this life is about, though," Kim said.
"But I think what I was looking for and who I was, you know years ago is completely different than who I am today and I value privacy. And I just want something that's like, really real."
Kardashian also shot down speculation that she's with Van Jones.
As for the two biggest controversies in her adult life?
First, Kim said she felt "pressured" to marry Kris Humphries, despite having cold feet before the wedding, because she didn't want to "let everyone down."
Second, Cohen actually asked the following:
Do you feel the show would have had its massive initial success without the publicity that surrounded the sex tape?
"Looking back, probably not," admitted Kardashian, referring to footage of her sleeping with Ray J that went viral in 2007.
It just happened to get leaked right before the series premiere of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. What a coincidence, right?!?
"I think that everything happens for a reason and I really try to live like that," Kim added.
"Every time there's a crazy scandal that feels like you can't breathe and how are you gonna get through this, it always is a lesson.
"Even if it's a private lesson, or even if it's just something that we didn't know we had to go through."
According to a new report, Kim Kardashian is a walking shrug emoji at the moment.
As you may have heard about by now, Kanye West is reportedly dating Irina Shayk.
The rapper and the model -- who previously dated such A-lister as Cristiano Ronaldo and Bradley Cooper, even making a baby with the latter -- were spotted in France on Tuesday.
By all accounts, they looked very cozy and happy together.
Heck, an insider even told TMZ that Kanye and Irina are "100% together."
Now, this same website claims that West and Shayk have been a romantic item since around March, having allegedly attended the April celebration for life in honor of DMX after the rapper passed away this spring.
At the time, at this event, Shayk was wearing a custom DMX memorial shirt... before it was available to the general public.
Why is this notable?
Because these pieces of attire were designed by Balenciaga and commissioned by the Yeezy brand, as Kanye helped raise over $1 million for DMX's family with the profits.
Kardashian, of course, filed to divorce West in February, citing "irreconcilible differences" as the basis for a legal break-up that many had seen coming for months.
Ever since Kanye hit the Presidential campaign trail in the summer of 2020, ranting and raving and revealing family secrets, there had been chatter that Kim had finally grown fed up with her husband's instability.
The couple also allegedly got into a giant argument in December that served as the tipping point for an eventual divorce.
Relatedly, numerous outlets have claimed that Kanye was living in Wyoming on his ranch, with Kim in Los Angeles with her kids, long before any divorce papers were served.
So, with the marriage having been evidently over for quite awhile, how does Kardashian feel right now about Kanye having seemingly moved on?
Just fine, thanks!
"Kim has heard the rumors about Kanye and Irina Shayk and she doesn't mind at all," an E! News insider alleges. "If it doesn't impact her kids, then she doesn't mind if Kanye dates."
Seems impossible to imagine that Kim isn't jealous or bitter in some way, shape or form.
But perhaps she really has moved on, as well.
Emotionally, that is.
"Irina and Kim don't know each other, so its a non factor for Kim. She doesn't mind if Kanye is dating," a second source told E!, which is a network basically run by the Kardashians, remember.
It is true that Kanye and Irina have known each other for years.
The model walked in the artist's Paris Fashion Week show in 2012... was cited in his track "Christian Dior Denim Flow" ... and appeared in his music video for "Power" in 2010.
"It was moving art and it was so much fun to work with Kanye because he's a great artist but also a great person," Shayk told The Wall Street Journal's Speakeasy in 2011 about her cameo, adding:
"I was playing the role of an angel which I was doing more devil than angel."
Still, the timing of Shayk and West's sighting abroad is a tad bit ironic.
The same day news broke that these two were hitting it, Kim shared a throwback photo of her and Kanye with their kids in honor of his 44th birthday, captioning the picture:
"Happy Birthday. Love U for Life!"
She also broke down on last Thursday night's new episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
"He should have a wife that supports his every move and travels with him and does everything and I can't," Kardashian wailed through tears.
"I feel like a f--king failure and it's, like, a third f--king marriage. Yeah, I feel like a f--king loser. But I can't even think about that.
"Like, I want to be happy."
Maybe now she can be.
Maybe now that she knows there truly is no future, Kim can look toward the future.
We can't help but wonder:
Does she still have Ray J's number?
Ow that Kanye West has separated from Kim Kardashian, he’s free to do the thing that caused his wife to get fed up with him and tell him to pack his bags in the first place; haphazardly peruse a vanity run for President of the United States.
Fox News reports Kanye told the FEC he’s exploring a 2024 run but hasn’t made a decision.
According to a letter issued to the Federal Election Commission (FEC) obtained by Fox News, the rapper responded to a Request for Further Information (RFAI) in which his representatives note that his Kanye 2020 committee that prompted the request is “strictly exploratory.”
“Kanye West has not decided whether to become a candidate for president in the 2024 election,” the letter reads. “And that the activity of the Kanye 2020 committee that prompted this RFAI is strictly exploratory.”
I kind of want this to happen because Kanye’s campaign was sort of a high point of 2020. The way he clearly had no idea what he was doing and articulated basically no policy positions other than a desire to violate the First Amendment by making kids pray in school was a nice contrast to the way Donald Trump and Joe Biden had no idea what they were doing.
Considering that Joe Biden has turned out way less disappointing than Democrats had expected so far, Kanye has an even more uphill battle this time.
Seriously, Kanye West threw his campaign together on such short notice that he didn’t even make the ballot in all 50 states but he still thought he was going to win. That’s the kind of show I want to see get a second season order.
Since TV networks have all but abandoned sitcoms, we need somewhere to get our laughs and footage of political strategists trying to explain issues to Kanye West could really fill that void left by Brooklyn Nine-Nine ending.

It's been three months since Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from Kanye West.
And even though the exes have already agreed to a custody arrangement for their four children, with billions in assets to divide between them, Kim and Kanye are probably headed for a messy legal battle.
Actually, make that two messy legal battles ...
According to a new report from UK tabloid The Sun, Kim and Kanye may find themselves on the same team one last time.
That's because the pair is being sued by former staffers who claim they were mistreated.
And if the sources The Sun spoke with are telling the truth, we might be in for one final Kimye scandal.
The trouble began when Kanye launched his Sunday Service shows in Calabasas.
The project combined a concert with a lively Sunday mass, seemingly with the goal of making going to church cool again.
Tickets were notoriously tough to come by, so we suppose in a sense, it worked.
But the whole thing went awry when the folks who helped Kanye put together his big, Jesus-y extravaganza complained that they had been ripped off.
In what sounds like a storyline from The Righteous Gemstones, Kanye's choir members and altar boys complained that he had “mistreated workers” throughout the service's run.
Apparently, when word got out that Sunday Service crew were planning to sue, Kim and Kanye's domestic staff suddenly felt emboldened to do the same.
“Since members of his Sunday Service crew sued, other employees have been considering their options," one insider tells The Sun.
It seems it was Kim who was primarily in charge of the staff at casa de Kimye, so she's become the focus of possible legal action by maids, butlers, valets, nannies, and whoever else worked for her and 'Ye.
“There’s apparently a potential lawsuit in the works against Kim involving multiple employees," the source continues.
"They are believed to be domestic workers employed at her home who allegedly may have been misclassified as independent contractors instead of employees," the insider adds.
"If a lawsuit is filed, then one issue would be how much control Kim and her staff had over them.”
This situation is a bit more scandalous than your standard labor dispute, as Kim and Kanye are being accused of exploiting minors.
“If minors were employed and worked more than the maximum limit set by law, then there may be a case of child labor violations," the source claims.
Under normal circumstances, Kim and Kanye would probably reach a settlement with the plaintiffs just to make this mess go away.
But since they're not seeing eye to eye on much of anything these days, that might have a hard time deciding how best to handle this situation.
Whatever the case, this couldn't have happened at a worse time for Kim.
Insiders say she wants nothing more than to distance herself from Kanye and to focus on her kids and her burgeoning career as a lawyer.
This sounds like a major headache and a distraction, at a time when Kim already has a whole lot on her plate.
Ever since we found out that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian were getting divorced, we all thought “oh, I guess Kanye finally pushed Kim over the edge with his antics.” All the stories we saw from the tabloids were “Kanye wants Kim back but she’s over it.”
Now Page Six is reporting Kanye is saying he’s the one who ended things and Kim is heartbroken because he’s a musical genius voice of his generation.
“Actually it was him saying for a year that they have nothing in common except the kids and he wanted out,” insisted the insider. “She pulled all the stops to try to save the marriage.”
The source added that he let her “file first in order to give her dignity.”
Does anyone believe this? Is anyone in the world hearing this and saying “Yeah, if I was a billionaire who is only famous for having a great ass you know what I would want? Kanye West around doing his whole Kanye West thing.”
There’s nothing you can get from being around Kanye West that you can’t get from listening to Kanye West’s albums. The old ones, before he got all Jesusey and went insane.
I don’t buy for a second that Kanye is the one who wanted to leave Kim. What was his complaint, she wasn’t supportive enough of him humiliating her in public? She didn’t vote for him for president?

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s divorce appears to be going pretty smoothly. It’s strange to see Kanye West being an adult about anything, especially something where he’s not getting his way, but he has been surprisingly calm in public during the entire divorce, essentially agreeing with Kim on all the points of the divorce filing.
But Hollywood Life reports that while Kanye is putting up a brave face, he’s not all that pleased about the divorce.
“Kanye took his time because he was holding out hope that he could fix things,” a source close to the rapper revealed. “Clearly that’s not happening, and he’s finally accepted it. His inner circle urged him to hire a good lawyer and settle this once and for all and thankfully he finally listened to reason.”
It’s always good to have a lawyer, but since neither he nor Kim is disputing the terms of their prenup, it’s pretty smooth sailing.
“His main concern is getting equal rights to see his kids,” the source explained. “And since they are both on the same page with that, everyone is expecting it to be a fairly swift resolution.”
“This is not something Kanye wants,” the source continued. “If it were up to him this divorce would not be happening so taking this step was very painful for him. But he’s in a place of acceptance now, there’s really not any other option.”
You know, there was something Kanye could have done to avoid the divorce, and that’s to have been a better husband. I’m almost entirely sure the root cause of Kanye and Kim’s divorce is Kanye finding religion. Once he started Kim not to dress so sexy and then thought he was going to be President of the United States on his platform of “f**k the First Amendment, make kids pray in school,” it was pretty clear that the marriage wasn’t going to last.
Relationships are a partnership and they take work. And if one partner is raising the kids while the other is running around talking about how they almost aborted their first child and calling his mother-in-law’s parter “Calmye” (which admittedly was pretty funny), then it’s not going to work.

Someone close to Kim Kardashian has finally spoken out about the reality star's divorce from Kanye West.
Someone VERY close to Kim Kardashian.
Someone so close to Kim Kardashian that she's responsible for bringing the mother of four into the world.
Yes, we're talking about Kris Jenner.
While appearing on The Kyle & Jackie O Show on Thursday, March 18, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians matriach passed along her wishes to the couple as they go their separate ways.
As you might expect, Jenner focused on the children Kim and Kanye share and how this makes the break-up all the more emotional and challenging.
But it also gives the celebrities something to focus on as parents, even if they are no longer husband and wife.
"I think it's always going to be hard anytime...you know, there's a lot of kids," Kris said on air.
"The good thing about our family is that we are there for each other and supportive and we love each other very, very much so all I want is for those two kids to be happy.
"And I want the kids to be happy.
"That's the goal."
Added Jenner, remaining diplomatic and controversy-free in her response:
"I think we all want that for our families, just to be able to have the love and appreciation of one another, and that everyone's okay.
"That's what you want as a mom."
Not exactly earth-shattering, but Kris does represent the first member of the Jenner-Kardashian family to comment on this divorrce.
According to a previous report, Jenner made an effort to step in and try to help Kim and Kanye reconcile.
Because she feared that Kim ending her marriage might affect her brand, which would hurt Jenner's bank account as well.
"Kris and Kanye are truly butting heads," an insider has claimed to The Sun.
"They have had a very tumultuous relationship in the past and in the last year spoke very little, but now they are not only talking but they are fighting again."
Alas, it appears as if things truly are over between Kim and Kanye.
The former realized back during the latter's 2020 Presidential campaign that there was truly no reaching West; that he was a certified narcissist who would never put his family first.
And who was seemingly falling further and further into the deep end -- just as Kim was trying to change her life and dedicate it to causes that truly help the public good, such as prison reform.
The stars have simply grown far apart and want very different things at this point.
Back on February 19, Kardashian officially put an end to her romance by filing for divorce in Los Angeles.
The E! star cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the split.
She also requested joint legal and physical custody of the four children they share.
With the final season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians kicking off on March 18, Jenner was asked on Thursday the divorce will play out on the small screen.
"I don't know what they have decided on in the finale, we haven't even seen the first show yet," she alleged.
"I'm sure they're putting some final touches. But I think it's just a private time for them. Kim wanted to deal with this with her own family in her own time...
"When she feels like it, I'm sure she'll say what she needs to say."
Amid claims that Kim is hooking up with Drake (!!!!!!!!!!!!), neither Kardashian nor West have said anything themselves in public since their divorce filing went public.
"Kim thinks it's important that the kids have a relationship with their dad and that he is a big part of their lives," a source has explained to E! News.
"For now, the kids have primarily been with Kim and living at the house. Any time Kanye wants to see them, he can. She is not stopping him."
"Kim is not sure what the future will be like, but she has made it clear to Kanye that he is welcome to spend time with them whenever he wants."
We heard earlier this week that Kanye West wanted Kim Kardashian back, or, more specifically, that he expected her to come running back to him when she “realized what she was missing.” We know that’s not likely to be the case because, well, who would miss Kanye?
Apparently, if Kanye does want Kim back, he’s playing hard to get. In fact, he’s not even speaking to, according to Page Six.
The source said, “Even before Kim filed for divorce, Kanye changed his numbers and said, ‘You can contact me through my security.’ Despite this, she trusts him around the kids. He loves them and is seeing a lot of them. She leaves the house and he arrives and hangs out with the kids. They have an army of nannies so the transition is easy.”
It kind of sounds like Kanye is being a giant baby. I know, it’s shocking, right?
I don’t think that Kim is about to come crawling back to Kanye. I don’t know if he’s not speaking to her as a ploy, they say absence makes the heart grow fonder after all, or if he’s just hurt and not dealing with his pain in a healthy way. Considering he’s still wearing his wedding ring, I’m guessing the first choice is at least partially true.

I know I say this a lot, but Kanye West is so egotistical that it makes him delusional. He literally described himself as “one of the most powerful humans.” He might be the most conceited human, but his power level is definitely not over 9000 otherwise.
Kanye’s wife Kim Kardashian recently filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences, which we all took as code for “being Kanye West.” But according to Hollywood Life, Kanye has a plan to win his soon-to-be ex-wife over.
“Kanye honestly feels that he can get Kim back,” the source EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife. “There is so much strain thanks to so many obstacles with quarantine and both of them wanting to live in different parts of the country, to the kids and to his overall health. He is realistic and knows that co-parenting is the way forward since Kim has had enough, but he feels it can be used as a breather to where distance will make the heart grow fonder and she will realize what she is missing.”
Given the choice of being around Kanye West and being away from Kanye West, I don’t think that being around him would be the winner.
But I do have a plan for how Kanye can win back his wife. All he has to do is call Mr. Peabody and ask him to bring over the Wayback Machine and take him back to when he first thought Candice Owens had some good ideas and punch himself in the dick.
Failing that, Kanye should get used to being one of the world’s most powerful bachelors.
The post Kanye West Said to be Working on Plan to Come Crawling Back to Kim Kardashian appeared first on The Blemish.
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are trying to have a drama-free divorce, but considering it involves Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, that doesn’t seem likely.
For example, the former couple are going to “co-parent” their children. Now, this is a great idea in theory; even though you’re not romantic partners, you’re parenting partners and you work things out together.
You may have noticed the problem here. If not, basically the reason that Kim and Kanye are getting divorced is that Kanye is unwilling to compromise on the things he needs to compromise on to make a marriage work. You know, like not running a doomed presidential campaign at the last minute with no planning or political experience whatsoever.
People reports that Kanye and Kim are already having trouble deciding how to raise their kids.
“They have a different vision of the world and how their kids should be raised,” the source says for this week’s issue. “Kim will always support Kanye and his causes and encourage him with their kids, but her future with work, family and life in general are strictly up to her. She makes it happen.”
“Kim will continue with her projects and so will Kanye,” the source adds. “What they want in life and for their kids doesn’t always match.”
Now, the source doesn’t say what the cause of the disagreement is, but I would put money on religion being the issue here. As you know, Kanye has been a Christian for like, 20 minutes and it’s basically all he ever talks about. They do say converts to religions are the most likely to become radicalized.
Kim seems like she’d like to be a part of polite society while Kanye honestly thought he was going to be in Donald Trump’s cabinet. I’m sure that’s going to lead to some conflict.

There are a lot of theories as to why Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are getting divorced, but they all basically boil down to “It’s Kanye West, the shock is he managed to stay married this long.”
That’s pretty much going to be the correct answer. No one thinks this divorce is because of things Kim Kardashian did or said or difficulties she caused, even though this is her third divorce. Marrying Kanye West was the best thing Kim could have done for her image; she was not exactly well-regarded by the public in the past but pretty much everyone has taken her side in the Kanye West divorce.
Instyle reports the basic reason their marriage broke down was Kanye is stubborn.
“There is no drama between Kim and Kanye,” the source said. “Kim is mostly just disappointed that they couldn’t figure out how to stay married.”
“But it takes two people to create a happy marriage,” the source added. “Kim has felt Kanye is not willing to do the hard work and compromise.”
Boy, does that sound like Kanye or what?
You have to compromise to make a relationship work and Kanye West is not the compromising type. Remember we heard stories that when Kanye became religious he started telling Kim to be less sexy and whatnot?
Kanye makes big decisions and expects everyone around to make whatever he wants to happen. That’s probably great if you’re a musician; Van Halen famously wanted all the brown M&Ms removed from a bowl of M&Ms backstage at every venue they played at as a way to check and see if the venue was following the little details in their rider or if they’d have to recheck all the electrical and pyro so they didn’t get hurt. Eddie Van Halen never told Valerie Bertinelli to take the brown M&Ms out of a bowl of M&Ms for him, though, and Kanye seems like the type of person who would.

Well, it finally happened.
After months of social media rumors and reports from inside sources, Kim Kardashian has filed for divorce from Kanye West.
Even though the move was not unexpected, it raised a number of questions among fans of the couple.
The number one mystery of the moment seems to be why, after enduring so many years of Kanye's monstrous egotism and wildly erratic behavior, would Kim finally pull the plug on her third marriage?
For nearly seven years, she's demonstrated saint-like patience in her dealings with her famously volatile husband.
Over the past few months, however, that patience seemed to wane.
So what was the nail in the coffin for Kim and Kanye's marriage?
What prompted Kim to finally part ways with the father of her four children?
Well, to understand those questions, we need to examine Kanye's behavior in the last half of 2020.
It was already a strange year for the couple, as Kanye's presidential run attracted all the wrong types of media attention.
Whether it was a serious foray into the politcal arena or an ill-conceived publicity stunt, the campaign was undeniably a failure.
And that failure seems to have taken an emotional toll on the famously fragile West.
In July, long before he formally suspended his run for the White House, Kanye began to show signs of emotional strain.
It's unclear whether this was a consequence of the year's tense political climate or a symptom of the bipolar disorder with which West has struggled for several years.
Whatever the case, it seems to have increased the strain on his marriage.
In July, Kanye unleashed one of his signature Twitter tirades.
But this time, the target wasn't the music industry of the news media, but his wife and her family.
In a series of tweets that left even his harshest critics stunned, Kanye accused Kim of cheating on him with rapper Meek Mill.
He then turned his attention toward his in-laws, slut-shaming Kylie Jenner for posing in Playboy and referring to Kris Jenner as a white supremacist.
Many thought that would be the end, as it was difficult to imagine Kim giving her husband a second chance after such a vicious attack.
But amazingly, Kim continued to work on the marriage.
Just days after the tirade was posted, she flew to Wyoming, where Kanye was living in seclusion on his ranch.
She was photographed having a tearful conversation with her husband while both of them were seated in his car.
The next day, she returned to Los Angeles, alone, and still crying.
It's unclear if it was then that Kim decided to call it quits, but less than three months later, reliable outlets such as Page Six and TMZ began to report that the mother of four had made up her mind.
No doubt further details will emerge in the weeks to come, but those hoping for a messy divorce are likely to be disappointed.
Despite the fact that Kim and Kanye have billions in assets to divide between them, insiders say they've pledged to keep the split as civil as possible for the sake of their children.
For the same reason, we hope they're able to stick to that pledge -- but when Kanye's involved, you never know what might happen.
We'll have further updates on this developing story as more information becomes available.
Kim Kardashian Files for Divorce from Kanye West https://t.co/NIpiOdbpO5
— TMZ (@TMZ) February 19, 2021
Kim Kardashian has gone ahead and finally done it.
Following several weeks of intense speculation about the state of her marriage, Kim Kardashian has turned what started out as a seemingly common rumor into a rather stunning reality:
She has filed for divorce from Kanye West.
TMZ, E! News and other outlets have all confirmed this development.
Each report characterizes the situation as being considered amicable between both parties.
At least ... for the moment.
Kim is seeking joint legal and physical custody of the former couple's four children.
Significantly, West is reportedly in agreement with this crucial clause.
There is also a prenuptiial agreement in place, which neither side is planning to contest.
Kardashian and Kanye are even far along in their property settlement negotiation, an insider alleges.
This source is citing the many homes these superstars own together.
That sort of joint ownership can take a long time to work through, even for the most amicable of exes.
The official documents were filed by by well-known divorce attorney Laura Wasser.
No official date of separation is listed.
However, long-time celebrity gossip followers know that this announcement has been a long time in the making.
There appeared to be a fissure in the romance shortly after Kanye confirmed a run for President in the spring of 2020, following up this decision by hitting the campaign trail.
To disastrous results.
Many families experience tension due to the pressures of politics, but much of Kanye's grief was of his own making. He had plenty for Kim, too.
At one point, Kanye admitted that Kim had wanted to abort their first daughter, North.
Crying on stage, he claimed that Kim had been poised to do just that.
At another point, he taunted Kim and confessed for the first time that she had previously wanted to break-up with him.
At yet another point, he referred to Kris Jenner as "Kris Jong-Un."
The ranting and raving grew to such a worrisome point that Kardashian released a statement in July.
In that statement, Kim issued a sincere plea that folks have "compassion" when it came to her husband's mental illness.
A few months later, the divorce chatter really started to grow strong.
Astute observers realized this was a legitimate possibility after E! -- the network basically run by Kim and her mother -- reported on a likely divorce.
Kardashian allowed the report to run... and then never denied its contents.
"It's gotten to the point where they haven't spent time together as a married couple in months," a source told E! News.
"They've seen each other for the sake of the kids," the insider noted.
The source continued: "But have been living separately. Kim knows the marriage is over. She's known for a while."
Kimye went public with their romance in April 2012.
The eye-catching power couple got married in May 2014.
They hare four kids together, North West, 7, Saint West, 5, Chicago West, 3, and Psalm West, 20 months.
For the past few months, West has been holed up in Wyoming.
Meanwhile, Kim has been staying with the children in California.
Neither has talked to the press about the failing relationship.
Kim, according to E!, held off on officially submitting her divorce documents out of concern for their little ones.
Many parents share this worry, that a breakup will harm their children more than an unhappy marriage, and must make their own hard choices.
But this particular divorce has been inevitable for quite a long time now.
"She wants to make sure she's making the right decision for the kids," the insider explained to E! News, adding:
"It's not about the marriage anymore," the report detailed. "She'll always care for Kanye but it's over between them."
The source emphasized: "Kim is only focused on what's best for the kids. It's a tough decision for her and she's figuring it out."
As of this writing, still no comment from Kanye or Kim or anyone from the latter's famous family.
We expect that to change soon, however.
We will of course update this post accordingly when we hear from a Kardashian.
Until then, for the sake of four very young human beings, we hope things between their parents remain as positive and as friendly as possible.
An amicable divorce will be better for everyone involved, even if it's less entertaining for a few folks to read about.
We also hope Kim gives Ray J another chance. The guy deserves it.
I had heard not too long ago that Kim Kardashian was waiting until the series finale of Keeping Up With the Kardashians aired to file for divorce from Kanye West, but that West was ready to move on and was considering filing himself of Kim didn’t.
But now it sounds like Kanye is having second thoughts about the divorce that Kim is still very much going to file for.
People reports that Kanye is “not doing well” now that the reality of the situation has actually sunk in.
“He is anxious and very sad. He knows that the marriage is over, and there’s nothing that can be done right now. He also knows what he is losing in Kim.”
“They are just not on the same page when it comes to their future as a family,” one insider told PEOPLE at the time. “And Kim is okay with it.”
“There is very little hope of reconciliation,” says the source. “It would have to be a miracle. But Kanye does believe in miracles.”
Kanye also believed he was going to be Secretary of Housing and Urban Development or something for Trump’s second term.
I don’t think Kanye is a bad guy, I just think he’s very stupid and narcissistic. I think Kim has finally realized that, too, which puts her about a decade behind South Park.
Kanye doesn’t think about what he’s doing and the consequences it may have. He just does whatever comes to mind and because he’s rich, sometimes it does kind of happen. The man basically woke up one day halfway through the election cycle and said “I should be President of the United States” and something resembling a presidential campaign appeared around him.
The stupid narcissist thing comes in when you realize that Kanye honestly thought he would win even though he was running against Donald Trump, an incumbent president in a country where incumbents rarely lose elections, as well as potential Democratic nominees Joe Biden, who had the entire machinery of a major political party behind him and Bernie Sanders, who built one of the largest grass-roots political movements in American history.
Everyone knew Kanye was a joke candidate except for Kanye. And ultimately, that cost him his marriage. It’s hard to look at Kanye and respect him after that.
The post Kanye West is Finally Realizing What Being Divorced From Kim Kardashian Really Means appeared first on The Blemish.
Just a couple of days ago, Kim Kardashian posted a picture of herself just lounging around in a bikini and a pair of Yeezy sneakers. Pretty much everyone assumed this was meant to show that she and Kanye were still friendly because why else would someone willing put on the ugliest shoes I have ever seen in my life.
Also, is anyone else getting a real Lannister vibe from Khloe replying “I wish I was the balcony” to that picture? Seriously, what the f**k, who says that about their sister?
Kanye may not have been too happy about Kim wearing his shoes, though, because right after that he moved 500 pairs of shoes out of the house they shared, reports Page Six.
Kardashian has been on a girls trip to Turks and Caicos with her family, allegedly giving West space to remove some items. “They both felt it would be less dramatic without both of them in the house,” claimed the source.
The insider alleged that West didn’t take all of his belongings — but some items, including the impressive sneaker collection. The rapper was seen touching down in Los Angeles at Van Nuys Airport via private jet last week.
This divorce is really taking a long time for something everyone knows is going to happen.
Also, why does Kanye have 500 pairs of shoes? You know they’re all Yeezys, if the man sits around listening to his own music you know that he’s not wearing shoes designed by anyone else. Does he need that many pairs? Do people actually buy his shoes? Are they just remaindered pairs that didn’t sell?

When you marry a celebrity, there's an understanding that you'll be sacrificing some of your privacy for the sake of their career.
When you marry one of the world's most famous reality stars, the agreement is a little different:
You basically have to be okay with having zero privacy, as your entire life is soon to be broadcast to millions of eager viewers.
When Kanye West first met Kim Kardashian, he was probably okay with that arrangement.
Then, as now, Kanye was one of the most famous musicians on the planet.
But an important difference is that his life was more stable in those days.
Back in 2011, when the couple first started dating, Kanye was not yet a billionaire; his bipolar disorder was well under control, and he and Kim were madly in love.
Cut to 2021, and all of that has changed.
The rapper is more successful than ever from a business/monetary standpoint, but his personal life is in a state of disarray.
After months of rumors, it looks as though Kim and Kanye are actually getting divorced.
Insiders say Kim had met with her lawyers, and while she has yet to actually file papers, it seems it's only a matter of time.
And it appears that despite Kanye's objections, the drama surrounding the divorce will be featured on Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
According to recent reports Kanye is "less than thrilled" about this development, but it sounds like there's not much he can do about it.
There are very few public specifics about West's contract with E! and with the Kris Jenner-owned company that produces the show.
But the consensus seems to be that he signed it when he and Kim were in heart-eyes emoji stage of their relationship.
As a result, Kanye -- who's usually a savvy businessman -- apparently just signed whatever was put in front of him under the belief that he would never have any reason to contest it.
That naivete has come back to bite him, as the rapper and sneaker mogul has no legal grounds on which to fight the Kard clan's plan to use Kim's divorce as a major storyline in the final season of KUWTK.
Naturally, Kanye himself won't be appearing on the show, but apparently, that won't prevent Kim from discussing the split extensively.
Filming for the season has already wrapped, and some fans are taking that as a sign that the divorce is further along than we realized.
Whatever the case, Kanye was still holed up at his compound in Wyoming while Kim and her sisters shot the final season in a Calabasas Covid bubble.
So it looks like the final season of KUWTK will be entirely Kanye-less.
Meanwhile, the drama of the Wests' split will probably continue to play out for months.
Kim and Kanye have billions in assets to split, and the forthcoming legal battle is sure to get messy.
Maybe E! should consider doing a spin-off called Kim and Kanye Go To Kourt!
Kanye West just kind of has ideas and has enough money to make those things happen. Like Kanye decided to run for president and he actually ended up on the ballot in some states. Kanye decided that he should be a preacher and all of a sudden he’s having Sunday services.
The problem with that is that when you’re throwing things together at the last minute for someone with more money than sense you tend to cut corners. And that leads to lawsuits.
Kanye West’s Sunday services were no small feat like a local church service. It was basically a Kanye West concert where he would talk about Jesus. It was a huge production. And even though Kanye didn’t put a lot of thought into it, it took a lot of people to make it happen.
Those people are now suing Kanye because they didn’t get paid or were subject to other labor violations.
Kanye is facing two class-action lawsuits which could involve up to a thousand people reports Page Six.
A hairstylist named Raina Leon claimed she had to wait 120 days for a $550 paycheck from work done in November 2019, which was then less a $20 wire fee deducted by West’s company.
Michael Pearson, a performer, alleged he was paid a flat day rate of $250, and regardless of his hours, was not permitted a meal or restroom breaks, and also alleges that performers stood all day or sat on the floor — because not enough chairs had been sourced — and walked home when a shuttle wasn’t provided for them.
You know what Jesus would do, Kanye? He’d pay his employees at his carpenter shop and let them use the bathroom.

When we went to war with Iraq and Afghanistan, we didn’t have an exit plan. The result is that we’ve still got troops in Afghanistan in 2021 and no plan to bring them home, even though some of the troops there now hadn’t even been born when the war began.
That sort of ongoing quagmire with no hope of escape is exactly the sort of thing you want to avoid with Kanye West.
Luckily for Kim Kardashian, she’s smarter than George Bush and as such she has an exit plan for her marriage. And “exit plan” is the exact terminology Us Weekly’s source used when they reported it.
As speculation about their relationship status continues to spread, Kardashian has sought the guidance of “her financial advisors to figure out an exit plan that would be best for her whole family,” the source says.
I can’t really think of a bad way to leave Kanye West. Have you ever heard Aziz Ansari’s story about meeting Kanye West? He walked into Kanye’s house and Kanye was listening to a Kanye West album. No one wants to be married to the “listens to his own album” dude.
“Kim has had all of her and Kanye’s financials and properties ready to be split, it’s a very fair deal for everyone,” the source adds. “Kim has all of her assets and financials ready for when she decides to file officially. Friends thought she was going to file in September, but she’s holding out. That does not mean that everything behind the scenes is already done.”

If I had sex with Kanye West, I would really not want anyone to know. I’m surprised Kim Kardashian hasn’t implied she had her kids with someone else yet, just to distance herself from Kanye. Like, I don’t know, Frank Sinatra maybe.
For some reason, Coke Carrigan seems to want everyone to believe that he had an affair of a sexual nature with Kanye, though.
See, Kanye’s former bodyguard threatened to sue Carrigan over allegations that he helped Kanye and Carrigan carry out an illicit relationship, so Carrigan apologized, as reported by Page Six.
“In order to for me to stay out of court and not get sued, I have to issue an apology to Mr. West and Kim Kardashian West,” the TikToker says in the clip. “So hi, Kim, if you’re watching this, I am so sorry, I honestly did this for the simple fact that your husband voted for Trump, and we simply can’t have that clownery in America, so you’re welcome.”
He then says, “Second of all, I hope this doesn’t ruin the chances of me getting on the KKW p.r. list, because I’ve been dying for those contour sticks.” KKW is Kardashian’s beauty line, which recently closed a $200 million deal with Coty.
Kanye West fans will note that Kanye West didn’t ever vote for Donald Trump, and the only person Kanye West has ever voted for is Kanye West.
Maybe it’s just me, but Carrigan doesn’t sound all that contrite. It sounds like he wants us all to think he had sex with Kanye West. I don’t know if he did or not, my gut says that he didn’t.
It’s a very strange thing to lie about for clout, though. No one is really going to pat you on the head for sleeping with Kanye West, you’re just going to have to respond to “Really?” every time you walk into a room. Maybe a few “What were you thinking?”
The post Beauty Influencer Coke Carrigan ‘Apologizes’ For Claiming He Slept with Kanye West appeared first on The Blemish.
I have very strong doubts that Kanye West is gay and in the closet. If Kanye West were gay, he would not only be out and proud, he would never shut up about how he’s the best at being gay and he’s the most powerful power top ever. He would seriously never stop talking about it.
Still, there are rumors. First the rumor that West was having an affair with Jeffree Star, now Cole Carrigan is claiming to have had an affair with Kanye.
Carrigan showed off Instagram DMs between himself and Kanye’s former bodyguard Steve Stanulis that showed the two setting up a clandestine meeting between Carrigan and West at a hotel.
Now, Stanulis claims the DMs are faked and sent Carrigan a cease-and-desist on the grounds that Carrigan’s claims are defamatory.
If Steve Stanulis sounds like a familiar name, it’s because he had his own legal battles with Kanye and Kim after he went around telling everyone what an asshole Kanye was.
I feel like his reaction to this is a little big, making legal threats and all, and that makes me wonder if there’s actually something to these rumors. But I don’t think Stanulis would go out of his way to help Kanye West, either.
I also don’t think Kanye has enough self-awareness to be a self-loathing closeted gay Christian Republican. Kanye loves Kanye more than anything in the world and I can’t see him actually hiding part of himself because it contradicts with the rest of his beliefs. He’d want the attention the Lil Nas X got and just say that being gay makes him a better Christian than straight people.

There are a lot of rumors flying around since the reports that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are divorcing started rolling in. The most believable is that Kanye being the second-most-unhinged person to run for president in 2020 was the thing that convinced Kim she needed to end things.
Perhaps the least-believable rumor is that Kanye and Kim are separating because Kanye cheated on her with Jeffree Star.
The rumor was started by TikTok star Ava Louise.
i can’t say WHO cuz he’ll sue me hint hint but it’s part of the reason Kanye’s so religious now it’s his self hatred …. my source is legit I promiss
If she sounds familiar, she’s famous for licking a toilet.
It is, of course, not true. The idea that Kanye found religion and became a conservative because he’s guilty about being a closet gay man is funny, but you’re actually thinking of Lindsey Graham. Kanye West became a conservative because he listened to Candace Ownens, and Owens became a conservative because she and her pro-cancel culture doxxing platform was rejected by liberals.
Star and fellow YouTuber Keemstar had a good laugh about it, too.

But is it really outside the realm of possibility that Kanye West and Jeffree Star are hooking up? Setting aside that there’s no evidence Kanye and Star have ever been in the same room, does anyone believe Jeffree Star would willingly go to Wyoming for any reason?
Would you go to Wyoming? I didn’t think so. That’s all the proof I need that this rumor is just that, a rumor.
The post Did Kanye West Cheat on Kim Kardashian with Jeffree Star? appeared first on The Blemish.
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."
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!"
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.
Every year, a lot of Americans threaten to leave the country if their preferred candidate doesn’t win the presidential election, and yet very few of them do. There was no mass exodus of Hollywood stars under George W. Bush or Donald Trump, and no migration of country music stars when Barack Obama won.
There is one celebrity I believe might be sincere in his desire to leave the country over his preferred candidate not winning the election, though: Kanye West. Kanye has just the spoiled “take my ball and go home” that he may actually be serious when he says he wants to leave the country because we were all too dumb to see the genius in his platform of making kids pray in school in clear violation of the First Amendment and being Kanye West. Those were essentially the only two things in his entire platform because let’s be realistic, Kanye West doesn’t understand economics or international relations at all.
And I am not talking hypothetically here, either; OK! Magazine is reporting that Kanye is seriously threatening to leave the country because “he doesn’t understand what went wrong and he wants out because we don’t deserve him.”
Now, to be fair to Kanye, he didn’t actually expect to win, according to OK’s source; the theory that he was trying to be a spoiler and siphon votes from Joe Biden turned out to be correct, and Kanye thought Trump would reward him with a cabinet position for delivering the presidency.
Kanye’s problem is he thought millions of people would vote for him, but only about 60,000 people did and he finished behind Gloria la Riva of the Party for Socialism and Liberation, who I considered voting for, though I ultimately went with Green Party candidate Howie Hawkins, who received more than five times as many votes as Kanye despite some pretty underhanded maneuvers by the Democrats to keep the Greens off the ballot in several states.
One of the reasons West performed so poorly is that Gloria la Riva, Howie Hawkins and even Jo Jorgensen understand government and how things work. Hawkins introduced the term “Green New Deal,” which you may have heard supported by prominent politicians like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders. Kanye West’s most notable accomplishment is marrying the reality TV lady with the big ass.
And even she thinks he’s an idiot.
“There is no way Kim [Kardashian] and the kids are moving to a new country, because her husband’s feeling were hurt,” a Kardashian source tells OK!. “Kim is used to these outbursts and finds ignoring them is the best way to handle him. After a while Kanye gets distracted by something else and moves on, which is a good thing because Kanye is nota good loser.”
That’s like how you handle a toddler. It’s kind of hilarious we currently have two giant babies stamping their feet and refusing to accept their utter rejection by the American people, especially when only one of them realistically had a chance at being president. Three if you count Amber Heard saying millions of people are being paid to not like her online.

Kanye West really thought he was going to be the next President of the United States. I was positive that his whole run for office was just an excuse for new branded Kanye West merchandise but he actually thought that he was going to be President. I mean, I guess if Donald Trump can do it for four years anyone can. Literally anyone. Seriously, just grab someone off the street, are they going to do worse? But I digress.
Kanye was scheduled to be on Jimmy Kimmel Live Wednesday night but backed out, apparently because he lost the election. Here’s what Kimmel said about it via USA Today.
“The day after the election, we’ll be joined in studio by maybe the next president of the United States, Kanye West,” Kimmel said during Monday’s episode. “Oh, he canceled?… Kanye West canceled moments ago, so he won’t be here. But I’ll be here.”
Kimmel quipped, “We’ll try to get one of the other presidents to come in.”
I love this story so much I want to put it my stand mixer, whip it until it comes to soft peaks and serve it on a homemade apple pie.
You really have to step back and consider what Kanye’s cancellation really means here. A normal person would go on, tell a few jokes and advertise that he had some new merch coming soon having booked the appearance knowing he wasn’t going to win, but Kanye actually thought he was going to go on Jimmy Kimmel and celebrate being the President-Elect.
I long to be as detached from reality as Kanye West. The man threw together a campaign at the last minute, was only on the ballot in a handful of states because of this and at his only campaign rally he broke down crying and told everyone he and his wife almost aborted their oldest child. Still, he really, honestly thought that because he was Kanye West, all he had to do was say he wanted to be President and it would magically manifest itself for him because that’s basically how everything else in Kanye West’s life has worked.
I cannot stress the extent to which I cannot stop laughing at this information.
