Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are living out a “fake marriage” for the cameras while growing increasingly distant in real life, a new report from sources close to the couple claims.
The report, which comes from unnamed sources and was published in In Touch Weekly magazine, claims that Kim and Kanye have been sleeping in separate bedrooms and that their pubic appearances are scripted to make it appear that they have a strong union.
The source called their marriage something of a “business deal,” and that secretly Kim is disgusted by Kanye.
The reports could lend credence to another rumor that has been circulating regarding Kanye’s sexuality. Some sources claim that Kanye and designer friend Ricardo Tisci have been carrying on an affair. MediaTakeOut noted that the two have been spending an inordinate amount of time together, and even wore coordinating outfits for Tisci’s 40th birthday party.
The publication also found a 2011 interview in which Tisci appears to confirm that he has been dating a celebrity on the down low.
“I have several but the one I think immediately is an experience I had with a man who is known. I never imagined that something could happen between us and it’s still the hottest weekend of my life. Nobody really knows if this guy is straight or gay, it is a mystery. However, I was attracted to him, his way of speaking, thinking, walking, dressing. I love what he does as an artist. This weekend both, this intimate moment has only reinforced my attraction to him.”
But there is also doubt about the story that Kim and Kanye have a fake marriage. The site Gossip Cop notes that In Touch Weekly has often been wrong about Kim and Kanye’s union, and even been caught fabricating stories.
A rep for the couple also denied rumors that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have a fake marriage, saying the report is “ridiculous.”
