Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have reportedly put divorce plans on hold and are now trying to put on a good public face in order to protect both of their images.
In the past several weeks, the couple has been plagued by divorce rumors, with reports claiming that they had drifted apart and encountered a number of marital woes. Some reports even claimed that Kim was planning to sell her divorce story to a tabloid magazine for $500,000, but that never came to pass.
Now, sources say Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have put off their divorce plans, largely so Kim can keep her reality television empire intact.
A report from Celeb Dirty Laundry claimed as follows.
“According to insiders, Kanye West was not happy about being trapped in a loveless marriage for publicity, but he is beginning to come around. Whether West will admit it or not, his marriage to the Keeping up with the Kardashians star has boosted his career just as much as it did hers. Now, Kanye is jumping on the showmance bandwagon and hired his family their own paparazzi team – you know for the days that the paparazzi they call to tip off about their whereabouts show up late.”
The report went on to quote a source who claimed that Kanye West changed his mind about divorcing Kim Kardashian when he realized how much more power he had as a couple.
“Kanye is loving his and Kim’s new business arrangement,” the source claimed. “At first he was skeptical, but now it’s fun for him – that’s why he was all over her at Paris Fashion Week and way more affectionate than usual. He realizes that together they are a force to be reckoned with, but after a messy divorce they could become has-beens.”
It is not clear how much truth there is to the latest Kim Kardashian divorce rumor. There have been several reports in the past that she and Kanye West were splitting, and none came to pass. Celeb Dirty Laundry has also been known to report on many unfounded rumors, citing unnamed sources that may have little connection to the celebrities.
If Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are planning to divorce, they are doing a good job keeping it under wraps. The couple has remained close publicly, and Kim has even used her Keeping Up With The Kardashians platform to talk about her desire to have a second child.
