Kim Kardashian has been known for years as the media darling diva of the Keeping Up With The Kardashians family. But if the publicity for Kanye West continues, momager Kris Jenner may want to continue renaming the reality TV show Keeping Up With Kanye & The Kardashians. The husband of Kim isn’t taking a back seat to her media mentions, with attention veering to West that ranges from his extravagant Yeezy fashion show to his terrifying Twitter rants. So, is Kardashian standing by her man, or is a divorce secretly being considered? A few clues are emerging from behind the closed doors of Kim and Kanye.
Most recently, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star released her Valentine’s Day playlist with what might offer a hint of heartache. Revealing that she’s not in the Hearts Day mood, Kardashian termed it a playlist for lonely hearts, and her husband Kanye is noticeably missing, reported Us Weekly.
“If you’ve had your heart broken before, you know how much it hurts!” posted Kim on her website. “These are some of my fav songs to blast when I’m not really in the V-Day spirit.”
The 35-year-old reality TV star and mom of two included, among others, Ariana Grande, Adele, and No Doubt on her “Lonely Hearts Mixtape,” uploading it to Spotify.
Kardashian released her tribute to lonely hearts on Valentine’s Day just days after husband West premiered his already infamous new album, The Life of Pablo. Among the controversial items is the “Famous” track.
“I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. Why? I made that bitch famous,” raps Yeezy.
Kanye got slapped down by Team Swift on social media from her pals such as Selena Gomez and Gigi Hadid, all of whom termed the lyrics misogynistic.
West also caused controversy recently for his Twitter feud with Wiz Khalifa and tweet proclaiming Bill Cosby innocent, reported Spin.
A fan suggested on Twitter that Rhymefest, the former songwriter collaborator for Kanye, also started writing his tweets. However, the songwriter, whose creations include “New Slaves” and “Jesus Walks,” revealed that he no longer works with West as of last month. Instead, Rhymefest had a suggestion.
“My brother needs help, in the form of counseling. Spiritual & mental. He should step away from the public & yesmen & heal,” urged the songwriter about Kanye.
In public, Kardashian is putting on a brave and glittery show of her loyalty to West, reported the Daily Mail. Platinum blonde tresses swinging, Kim was supported by her family to cheer for Kanye’s fashion collection Yeez.
West acknowledged Kim while playing tracks during his album listening party.
“I wanna appreciate my wife and her family for supporting me when I go crazy on the fashion world and do all that s***, you know,” said Kanye of Kardashian. “I wanna appreciate you all.”
Kim also made her presence known when Kanye starred on Saturday Night Live, turning to social media to share her pride and also revealing that she was using Tidal to play his album. The Life Of Pablo premiered along with West’s third Yeezy collection in what was a very Kanye-focused week for the Keeping Up With The Kardashians clan.
And for those looking for another clue about what’s really going on behind closed doors in the relationship between West and Kim, the rapper gave a clue in a song from his new album, calling Kardashian his “wifey” and hinting at the existence of a sex tape, reported In Touch Weekly.
“I wake up, all veggies no eggs,” say the lyrics. “I hit the gym, all chest no legs / Yep, then I made myself a smoothie / Yeah, then me and wifey make a movie.”
Does “movie” mean what some fans think, which is a sex tape? Or is it sort of a Disney flick that their daughter North West, 2, can watch without spending the next decades on a pyschiatrist’s couch?
Among the other tracks that are getting attention, in addition to the one mentioned above about having sex with Taylor Swift, is “High Lights,” which references Ray J, the ex of Kim and co-star of her first sex tape. That reference is adding to the speculation that yet another sex tape exists, this time starring Kardashian and Kanye.
As for those divorce rumors? Those Twitter rants from West are giving Kim a reason to feel miserable, a source told Radar Online.
“Kim is feeling totally smothered by Kanye right now,” said the source.”It’s like she no longer has a voice.”
Kardashian is close to the breaking point, according to that insider.
“Kim is such a power-hungry person that this cannot go on for long before she has had enough. They are constantly fighting and it is just ridiculous.”
