In recent weeks, Kim Kardashian has battled divorce rumors while attempting to do damage control for husband Kanye West. Concerned that his Twitter tirades and meltdowns are escalating and tarnishing her own image as well as that of the Keeping Up With The Kardashians clan, Kim is demanding that her husband get therapy, a source told Us Weekly.
“Kim is very concerned and frustrated. She and Kanye are having big problems that are escalating,” said the family source. “Kim has demanded that Kanye get therapy.”
Kardashian is worried about her husband after his endless Twitter tirades and meltdown prior to his performance on Saturday Night Live. Can therapy save their marriage?
But the rapper hasn’t promised he will go to therapy.
“He hasn’t agreed to anything yet,” added the source.
So the KUWTK star has decided it’s time to ramp up the positive publicity for herself and her family. With that in mind, Kardashian triumphed by stunning in a jacket with the face of (wait for it) Kim herself, reported Radar Online.
Proving that one selfie’s worth a thousand words, Kim turned heads in a frock that highlighted every curve, topped by the jacket with Kardashian’s picture starring as the main feature. The occasion for proving that when it comes to earning attention, no one does it like Kim was an event in which someone else should have been the star: Her BFF Jonathan Cheban’s birthday.
Continuing on her publicity train to improve her husband’s image, Kardashian and West (who some refer to as Kimye) took North with them to a lunch date at Bel Bambini, with adorable photos of daddy and daughter again melting hearts. A source told Radar that the emphasis on the children is all part of the plan Kim has implemented to change her husband’s image.
“Kim feels like right now is the time to do this because she thinks that they really need this to save Kanye’s image,” said the source. “Kim knows that she has to do something drastic and it’s time for the world to meet Saint.”
The long-awaited first photo of Saint occurred with a message from Kardashian that she chose to release the picture to remember her late father Robert Kardashian on what would have been his birthday, as the Inquisitr reported.
“Today is my dad’s birthday. I know there’s nothing more in the world he would have wanted than to meet his grandchildren. So I wanted to share this pic of Saint with you all,” wrote Kim.
Kardashian didn’t neglect North in her family-first tweets. Kim also shared a photo of Saint’s daddy and his big sister, North, sweetly slumbering together during a shopping expedition.
“So today we went baby shopping with @johnlegend & @chrissyteigen,” revealed Kardashian.
Hunting for her husband and North, Kardashian finally found them and used the photo to show his softer, sweeter side.
But all the pictures of cute children aren’t deflecting from the concern that Kimye has cash flow problems, with the rapper’s Twitter statement that he’s $53 million in debt still reverberating. Despite that claim, the two are close to completing the sale of the huge Bel Air mansion they bought in early 2013 for $9 million, remodeled for big bucks, but never lived in, according to Variety.
Although the couple initially sought over $20 million, the price is now $18 million, but it’s under-the-radar because there is no open marketing property listing. Is the sale part of a desperate attempt to boost their cash flow, despite his $22 million income and Kim’s $53 million last year?
Rather than that Bel-Air mansion, Kim has her eyes on the prize of a Hidden Hills mansion that is close to her momager, Kris Jenner.
But renovating that $20 million Hidden Hills home has turned into a nightmare for Kardashian and West, an insider revealed to Radar Online.
Battling over everything from the fixtures to the decor, the mansion is now six months behind.
“The project is a total nightmare!” said the insider. “They both change their minds constantly… the floor in the entry way [has been] ripped out at least four times because he didn’t like the way the sun reflected off of the tiles. Each time the floor is taken out, it’s at least $25,000.”
And even though Kimye co-own the mansion, the insider claims that Kim isn’t paying anything for the renovations.
“Kim hasn’t volunteered to pay a dime, and has no problem spending his money. This stage of the project was slated to cost $5 million, but it’s way over budget. The figure has ballooned to over $10 million, and it’s still months away from being finished.”
For now, they’re living with momager Kris Jenner. But that’s adding to the friction inside their marriage.
“Living with Kris is continuing to take a toll on their marriage,” added the insider.
