While everyone is standing around dumbfounded by Kanye West’s recent behavior, one teenager might be looking at the bigger picture.
According to reports from Hollywood Life, Kim Kardashian’s younger sister, Kylie Jenner, fears that Kim Kardashian’s husband may be doing damage to Kim’s brand. As a result, Kylie has told Kim that she needs to take a break from Yeezy.
“Kylie is only 18, but she can already see what’s happening and she’s urging Kim to take a Kanye hiatus. She’s already told Kim that Kanye needs to be on ice, somewhere alone and away from the family,” a source told Hollywood Life. “Kylie explained to Kim that it’s the same thing she did to Tyga when she felt he was bad for her brand and reputation. It would be a temporary fix, but Kylie’s hoping that the time apart would somehow humble Kanye and make him come to his senses…and ultimately shut him up!”
Some fans agree with Kylie Jenner and believe that some time away from her rapper husband is exactly what Kim Kardashian needs, but Hollywood Life goes on to report that the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star isn’t sure that a temporary split would be the best choice. After all, Kim does have her young children to worry about.
“Kim’s apprehensive. She just gave birth and is not sure she should temporarily take a Kanye break. It’s all so soon and overwhelming. But, she does like the idea and is considering her options.”
Surely, Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner are at totally different places in their lives and in their relationships, and just because Kylie appears to understand a business relationship doesn’t mean she understands the whole picture. In fact, if another outlet is to be believed, Kylie Jenner isn’t offering Kim K advice at all.
In fact, Gossip Cop called the Hollywood Life report “entirely fabricated” and “horses***.” The media outlet wrote, “Gossip Cop is told the teen is most certainly not dispensing advice to her sister, a married mother of two, nor would Kardashian even think about taking a break from her husband. Gossip Cop is assured by an actual family insider that the webloid’s report is complete ‘horses***.'”
In recent days, Kylie and ‘Ye had publicly butted heads after the youngest member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan signed a multi-million dollar deal with Puma. Kanye, who works exclusively with Adidas on his Yeezy shoe line, took exception to Kylie’s new sponsorship and said so. Kim’s husband has since said that he’s calmed down about the situation.
Kanye’s bizarre behavior as of late extends beyond beefs with family members, though. In recent weeks the rapper-turned-fashion-designer has taken to repeatedly ranting on Twitter and attacking other celebrities, all while claiming to be in extreme personal debt.

Some, such as Kanye’s former co-writer Rhymefest, believe that Yeezy needs to seek professional mental and spiritual help, while others have dismissed ‘Ye’s behavior as Kanye being Kanye. Regardless of what one believes or doesn’t believe about West’s behavior, it’s difficult to argue that he hasn’t behaved a bit oddly in recent weeks.
Conveniently, Kanye’s strange behavior coincides with the release of his new album, The Life of Pablo, and the launch of his Yeezy Season 3 fashion line.
What do you think of the idea that Kanye West’s outrageous behavior could be harming the brand of his wife, Kim Kardashian? Do you think Yeezy’s strange antics reflect on his wife, or do you see the two celebrities as completely different entities? Why or why not?
