Kim Kardashian could be headed for divorce, with a report that rapper Kanye West may have dumped his very pregnant reality television star wife.
Kim and Kanye have faced rumors of marital problems almost since the day they walked the aisle, with near constant reports of jealousy, fighting, and spite. The latest reports claim that the strife actually led Kim to move back in with her mom, Kris Jenner.
While the story is light on specifics, Celeb Dirty Laundry reports that Kanye is apparently embarrassed to be seen with his wife.
“No amount of counseling from Kris Jenner seems to be changing Kanye’s mind though. The rapper is moving on to bigger and better (in his eyes) and Kim Kardashian is slowing him down, and down right embarrassing him. According to our friends at Naughty Gossip, there is a new report floating around Kanye is at the point that he is embarrassed to go out in public with Kim.
“The website explains, ‘Kanye said Kim can’t even hold a knife and fork properly …. He says she’s uncouth!’ And, to add insult to injury – Kim reportedly hovered by the kitchen at a fancy event waiting for the appetizers to come out, because she was so famished. (In her defense she is super pregnant.)”
It can be difficult to tell if there is any truth to the rumor that Kim Kardashian is headed for divorce. Celeb Dirty Laundry has been known to report regularly on problems between Kim and Kanye, but the reports are almost always unsourced and have not yet turned out to be true (or at least, never confirmed).
On the surface, things seem to be fine between Kim and Kanye. She posts often about her husband online, including a recent Instagram shot showing the two sharing a kiss.
Another post from the day before shows Kim and Kanye walking hand in hand at a recent Paris Fashion Week.
But other outlets have reported on marital problems as well. Back in November, the New York Post reported that Kanye West skipped Thanksgiving dinner with the Kardashian family, spending the holiday in Paris instead.
“Kanye West skipped a family Thanksgiving with the Kardashians.
“The rapper — without Kim and baby North — was spotted dining at Ralph Lauren’s restaurant in Paris with two male friends Thursday.
“Meanwhile, Kim was in LA with the whole Kardashian Klan at Khloé’s house.”
Whatever the case may be in her marriage, it appears clear that Kim Kardashian is having trouble with her second pregnancy. In a post on her website, Kim talked about how difficult it is being pregnant and appears more than ready for it to be over.
“I’m gonna keep it real: For me, pregnancy is the worst experience of my life! LOL!” she wrote (via Celebuzz). “I don’t enjoy one moment of it and I don’t understand people who enjoy it.”
“Maybe it’s the swelling, the backaches or just the complete mindf*** of how your body expands and nothing fits,” Kim continued. “I just always feel like I’m not in my own skin.”
It is unclear if difficult feelings about the pregnancy could be leading to tension between the couple. Kanye also keeps a busy schedule, splitting his time between his rap career and his work in fashion design. Kim is busy on her own, keeping up her reality television empire and her growing number of outside projects.
But there may be other forces trying to lead Kanye West and Kim Kardashian away from divorce. Reports indicate that Kris Jenner has been helping Kim, and fears that a divorce will sink the reality television career that she helped to shape for her daughter.
