Kim Kardashian & Kanye West Use North & Saint West Photos To Halt Nude Selfie Backlash & Divorce Rumors?

When Kim Kardashian finally unveiled her long-awaited first photo of Saint West, an insider told Radar Online that her decision to post that picture was related to her desire to deflect attention from her husband, Kanye West‘s, ongoing Twitter tirades, feuds, and meltdowns.

“Kim feels like right now is the time to do this because she thinks that they really need this to save Kanye’s image,” revealed the insider.

Apparently Kardashian still feels that way, because now she has unveiled another photo of Saint West, reported Us Weekly.

“You’re the sun in my morning babe,” posted the mom of Saint and North.

Now 3-months-old, Saint looks like his big sister North at that age.

When the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star shared the first photo of Saint West, she linked the timing to what would have been the birthday of her deceased dad, Robert Kardashian.

“I know there’s nothing more in the world he would have wanted than to meet his grandchildren,” she posted. “So I wanted to share this pic of Saint with you all.”

The photo of Saint came after some teasers from his mommy.

“He’s so cute, you guys! You have no idea,” she shared on her app. “He’s so cute. He looks just like me! Jk, jk, guys.”

In addition to supposedly doing damage control for Kanye by posting those baby pictures, did Kim also challenge those who claimed that by posting nude selfies, she’s a bad mom? Amid the nude selfie backlash, some haters contended that posting pictures of herself naked made Kardashian a bad mother, noted Refinery 29.

Some unfavorably contrasted the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star to Ayesha Curry, a celebrity mom married to basketball player Stephen Curry.

“Everyone’s into barely wearing clothes these days huh? Not my style. I like to keep the good stuff covered up for the one who matters,” posted Ayesha.

Those slamming the reality TV star used that comment as ammunition.

“I want to be an Ayesha Curry type of mom, not a Kim Kardashian type of mom,” declared one anti-Kim follower.

In addition to dealing with the nude selfie backlash, Kardashian is reportedly having marital problems with Kanye because of his Twitter rants and meltdowns. Although she allegedly wants to do damage control for his image, their marriage problems are so extensive that Radar cited a source who claims that Kim has had divorce papers prepared.

“Kim feels Kanye has given her no alternative. Divorce papers are being drawn up,” said the source.

And another insider described the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star’s relationship with Kanye as frightening.

“He’s a ticking time bomb,” warned that source.

With all that negativity tarnishing the image of Kim and Kanye, is North West also being exploited? Even though the little girl protested, Kardashian forced her daughter to pose for Snapchat, reported Us Weekly.

At 2, North made it clear that she was scared of Snapchat, which her mom blamed on “scary filters.” The little girl was tearful, trying to escape during the posing.

“Not a Snap fan!” admitted North’s mother.

In her role as momager to the Keeping Up With The Kardashians clan, how does Kris Jenner feel about the supposed marriage problems between her daughter and son-in-law? Radar Online cites a source claiming that Jenner and Kanye had a huge fight.

“Kris and Kanye had a huge argument,” said the source.

The problems began when West attempted to impact a deal that Jenner was managing for Kylie Jenner with Puma.

“It infuriated Kanye because he’s affiliated with rival Adidas,” explained the source. “He blamed Kris, calling the deal the ultimate betrayal and labeled her a greedy money-grabber during a showdown that left his wife, Kim, a sobbing wreck. [Kris] threw him out of her house on the spot.”
