Breakups To Make-Ups: Amber Rose-Wiz Khalifa Saga Just A Publicity Stunt?
Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa are the internet’s favorite breakups-to-make-ups couple right now, and it looks like they’re heading toward the”make-ups” part. But has the whole thing been just a publicity stunt to garner attention?
The Inquisitr has already reported on new claims that Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa are angling back toward each other, and rumor has it that they’ll be trying to work things out this weekend.
Reportedly, the two will be getting together in the next couple of days to hash out their troubled relationship, and you can bet that the paparazzi will be hounding the pair if they’re even in the same city any time soon.
It’s that whole “paparazzi” thing that has some people thinking the Amber Wiz Saga might just be for show. MediaTakeOut‘s initial report that Amber Rose and Wiz might be getting back together cited an “insider” that was “close to Wiz” as the source saying that the two were looking at reconciling.
But, really, who makes a plan to patch their marriage up, sets a date, and then leaks those details to the press? Who does that? Really?
Even MediaTakeOut had an eyebrow raised at the story of Amber and Wiz.
“Are y’all starting to think,” MTO wrote in its initial report on the rumored reconciliation, “that the whole Amber Wiz breakup was just one big PUBLICITY STUNT?”
What would be the point of this sort of spectacle? Well, Wiz did just come out with an album, Blacc Hollywood, about two months ago. It hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart in late August, moving 90,000 units in the first seven days of its release.
You might not have heard of the album, but you’ve almost certainly heard of how Amber Rose marked its success. A former stripper, Amber showed off the skills that made Wiz and her previous beau Kanye fall for her with an epic twerking video posted to Instagram.
Couple that with the fact that, in all previous appearances, Rose and Khalifa seemed to be madly in love. Amber and Wiz’s public displays of affection bordered on gross from time to time, and all we’d heard out of the pair up until recently pointed toward wedded bliss.
Plus, the two have a one-year-old son together. How does that matter? Two ways. One: Amber Rose doesn’t look like she let herself go at all post-baby. Two: child support.
Of course, faking a cheating scandal – with twins – a divorce, and a reconciliation seems like a long way to go just to boost album sales by a few thousand, but it’s not entirely unheard of. Rumor has it that Beyonce and Jay-Z – the reigning king and queen of… well… music – faked a cheating scandal and divorce in order to boost ticket sales for their On The Run tour.
Wiz and Amber Rose’s story, though, seems a bit different. The couple have taken their supposed split public, and Amber Rose has actually filed for divorce. If this is a publicity stunt, Wiz and Amber both look really committed to the bit. Or, at least Amber does. Rose posted her heartbreak to Twitter a couple of days ago, and she seemed pretty sincere.
The pain…I wake up every morning feeling like my best friend died….. I never knew what a true heartache felt like until now.

Wiz, meanwhile, was a bit more concerned with the state of his hair, leading some to wonder whether he even knew he was getting divorced.

We’ll probably know whether or not Wiz and Amber’s breakup will end in a make-up in the next few days. Or maybe we won’t. If it doesn’t end well, though, Wiz could be on the hook for quite a hefty sum in spousal and child support. Amber Rose is seeking full custody of the couple’s son Sebastian, according to the divorce fillings. Plus, word has it that she’s due for a $1 million payday in the event of a divorce.
So… Maybe it’s Wiz that’s floating all of these “Let’s Stay Together” rumors, after all.
