Kim Kardashian has issued an ultimatum to her husband, Kanye West. Frustrated and humiliated by his Twitter rants and meltdowns, Kim has decided that she’s ready to take the ultimate step. So, Kardashian is waging war against her spouse by threatening him that unless he changes, the queen of the Keeping Up With The Kardashians clan will divorce the rapper, revealed a source quoted by Radar Online.
Kim requested her divorce lawyer to move ahead and draw up the papers needed. That way, if Kanye doesn’t stop with the Twitter tirades and tantrums, Kardashian has a quick way to exit their marriage.
“[Kim] instructed her to get everything in order so if she decides to end the marriage, she’s ready to go,” revealed the source.
Kardashian gave West a last chance to heed her advice. If he doesn’t, Kim will file for divorce, according to that same source.
As to why Kardashian has put up with so much for so long only to reach the point of divorce now? It all has to do with the publicity train to fame that Kim loves to ride. And with all those public meltdowns and Twitter rants, Kim fears that she’s getting a bad rap from her rapper husband’s public image.
“[Now Kardashian is] afraid his rants are having a negative effect on her image,” explained the source. “She’s tired of cleaning up Kanye’s messes. She’s begged him to stop tweeting and get help for anger issues, and he’s assured Kim he’ll work to change.”
But will that be enough, or will Kardashian file for divorce after the next public explosion, whether it’s on social media or backstage at a performance?
Woman’s Day points out that Kim already has had to endure the rapper’s behind-the-scenes meltdown at Saturday Night Live and his Twitter proclamation that he’s $50 million in debt. Kardashian apparently had no control over his plea to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg for $1 billion.
Add in West’s ongoing feuds, and a source quoted by Woman’s Day revealed that Kim expects the worst despite her divorce ultimatum, even though her husband has reassured Kardashian that he will seek to modify his behavior.
“They know it’ll only be so long before he has another outburst, and she’ll be forced to file for divorce,” said that source.
Should the divorce take place, Kim will be chalking up her third failure at a successful marriage. Kardashian previously was married to Damon Thomas and Kris Humphries.
So do the Twitter proclamations about debt mean Kim should worry about being able to support herself if they do divorce, along with their children North and Saint? As the Inquisitr reported, the couple keep their income separate. Moreover, Kardashian is considerably wealthier.
Kim was at 33 on Forbes’ list of top 100 highest paid celebrities in 2015. That number resulted from hard work. Kardashian got credit for monetizing her fame, almost doubling her income from $28 million in 2014 to close to $53 million in 2015.
Accounting for about 50 percent of that wealth is Kim Kardashian: Hollywood, the mobile and tablet game.
In contrast, Kanye was not on the Forbes’ 100 highest paid celebrities list in 2015. That translates to an earning of under $28.5 million, which is how much the famous folks ranking between 95 and 100 made on that list on which Kardashian proved that fame pays.
So where does the debt threat come from? Kardashian is not worried because it’s not true, an insider told E News.
“She thinks all the stories about his money problems are so funny because it’s all kind of inaccurate,” the insider revealed. “It’s not debt per se. He always invests in himself and that’s where that [53 million] number came from.”
Adding to signs that no money worries exist as far as Kim and her children are concerned, Kardashian is happily engaged in investing in the family’s fabulous new California mansion, a source told People.
“They both make a ton of money but they also spend a ton. And they are sparing no expense with their new house,” said the source. “$20,000 fixtures, the perfect flooring – the costs have been endless.”
That’s not the only sign that the divorce may not take place just yet. In addition, Kim has come up with several schemes for a last-ditch effort to control her husband. Kardashian has banned him from social media, forbidding the rapper to post anything unless she scrutinizes it first, a source told Radar Online.
“Kim wants him to leave it to a professional social media expert, but in the meantime she’s demanded he show anything he wants to post to her first,” said that source.
However, there are some areas of his life that Kardashian just can’t control. In leaked audio of West’s meltdown at Saturday Night Live, the rapper is heard in a tirade of a tantrum, reported Us Weekly.
“Look at that s**t, they took my f**kin’ stage off SNL without asking me,” he says in the leaked audio. “Now I’m bummed. That and Taylor Swift. Fake a**. Now we’re gonna do this. We’re breaking the motherf**king Internet.”
Moreover, West’s meltdown dissed NBC employees as “white motherf**kers.” The meltdown became the major topic of conversation at the after-party, an insider revealed to Us.
“It was all that anyone talked about at the afterparty,” said the insider.
With all that evidence that her own image is being tarnished, Kardashian is planning an intervention at Kris Jenner’s house, a source told Hollywood Life.
Kim and Amber Rose are teaming up for the confrontation, and Kardashian even wants to include the couple’s daughter, North. Although she’s just 2-years-old, Kim hopes that the sight of his little girl will provide a wake-up call.
“Together, Kim’s hoping that the three of them can put [an] end to Kanye’s madness,” added the insider.
And if that doesn’t work, Kardashian has those divorce papers already drawn up.
