Kanye West may rank as a misunderstood genius in his own mind. However, an increasingly greater pool of people are opining that the husband of Kim Kardashian is a self-destructive, out-of-control artist whose lackluster new album reviews hint that his manic meltdowns and Twitter tirades are akin to an adult version of a toddler’s temper tantrums when life doesn’t go his way.
Now, all the drama has drummed up divorce rumors for Kim and Kanye, with millions and the custody of their two children at stake for Kardashian and West. Some reports have even indicated that Kim is attempting some last-chance efforts, including hiring a publicity team to polish up the public perception of Kanye, reported the Mirror.
But while those divorce rumors rise, Kardashian took to social media to proclaim that the world just doesn’t understand West.
But is Kardashian herself being honest about her feelings regarding West? When it comes to the increasing friction in the marriage caused by Kanye, Kim has gotten to the point of declaring she can’t take anymore, shared a family insider cited by Radar Online.
“Kim announced to her mom [Kris Jenner], ‘I have to divorce Kanye.’ It breaks her heart, but she doesn’t see any other way.”
The problems created by West go beyond his now infamous Twitter rants, public meltdowns and tirades. Some of the brouhaha brewed by Kanye and troubling Kardashian took place at the posh Waldorf Astoria in New York, an insider told Radar. It was 4 a.m. when West allegedly stumbled through the hallways and caused Kardashian to become irate.
“He caused a huge scene,” said the insider. “He refused to listen to anyone and kept screaming, ‘I am Kanye West and my wife is Kim f***ing Kardashian.’ “
Kim was furious, and the screams woke up their children as well, making her even more angry, according to that source.
The scene served as the “nail in the coffin,” added the source.
“Kim feels Kanye has given her no alternative. Divorce papers are being drawn up.”
The decision to draw up those divorce papers comes only after Kardashian sought other methods of saving her own public image and relationship with West. The much-anticipated first photo release of tiny Saint West allegedly occurred only because Kim wanted to detract attention from Kanye and provide her family with more positive publicity.
Kardashian even attempted to get West into anger management therapy. But none of it worked, revealed Radar‘s source.
“He’s a ticking time bomb and insufferable to be around,” summed up that source.
But are all those reports about Kim getting closer to finalizing those divorce papers true? Kardashian has something stopping her, and that’s the fear that she has about just what West would do if she took that step, an insider revealed to Hollywood Life.
After learning how Kanye treated his ex, Amber Rose, Kardashian fears that he would lash out publicly and dish the dirt not just about her, but the entire Keeping Up With The Kardashians clan, claims that insider.
“If Kim did ever get to the point where she thought about divorce she would be scared to death!” shared the source. “It would be open season on her and her entire family. Kim would be petrified over what Kanye would potentially say about her. He knows all her most intimate secrets. He knows everything she’s insecure about.”
Consequently, Kardashian is holding out rather than seeking to complete the divorce process and dump West, according to that insider.
“Eventually, she hopes he will tone down all his crazy talk and be normal Kanye again,” added the source.
