Kris Jenner Reportedly Pushing Kim Kardashian To Cut Losses, End Things With Kanye West
Kris Jenner is rumored to be pressing daughter Kim Kardashian to end things with the still fragile Kanye West before his erratic behavior leaves her in financial ruin.
The high-powered couple is said to be as close as ever in the wake of West’s recent hospitalization for what’s been described as sleep deprivation and extreme exhaustion. Kim Kardashian reportedly hardly left his side while he was recovering in the hospital.
But that newfound bliss might not last long if the demanding momager has her way.
“Kris has told Kim to abandon that sinking ship named Kanye due to his careless financial habits and embarrassing antics,” a source told Radar.
The 61-year-old Jenner’s crusade is said to have started even before West spent nine days at the UCLA Medical Center, with her spending the last several months leading up to the moment when he was rushed to a hospital emergency room begging her daughter to cut the cord.
On the day he was hospitalized, audio from the 911 emergency call made seeking assistance for him indicates dispatchers warned those who were around him to keep all weapons away from him. In addition, police backup was also requested, and West was ultimately transported to the hospital while handcuffed to a gurney.
While he was in the hospital, West was kept from seeing his two young children, three-year-old daughter North and 11-month-old son Saint. During that time, Kardashian is rumored to have only left his side to check on the children.
West and Jenner were also once thought to be close, but the word is that has all changed amid her growing concerns that “he has no money smarts” and is “going to bankrupt Kim.”
With his sudden hospitalization, West’s fortunes took an even bigger hit after he was forced to cancel the last 20 dates on his Saint Pablo Tour.
“From dumping millions of dollars of furniture to storming off stage and promising fans they’d get their money back, he’s turning into a very expensive nightmare,” a source added.
And now that the 39-year-old “Famous” rapper is back home, he and Kardashian are expected to foot the bill for round-the-clock care for him.
West’s nonstop workload and incessant worrying about his wife recently being robbed at gunpoint while visiting Paris are also thought to have been major factors in his meltdown, as was the anniversary of his mother’s passing.
“It did a number on him as much as Kim,” a source said of the robbery where bandits reportedly made off with millions in valuables. “The mere thought that anything could happen to her sent him in a tailspin. He wasn’t sleeping, and he was having nightmares about it.”
Even while onstage during his tour, West showed signs of the stress he was under, including hinting Beyoncé cheated for the recent MTV Video Music Award she won and insinuating that Jay-Z once sent hit men out to track him down. In another instance, he stunned fans by proclaiming if he had voted in the recently held presidential election, he would have cast his vote for Republican winner Donald Trump.
West has long been hugely respected in the hip-hop community for his outspoken ways, including once shouting on live television during the height of the damage caused by Hurricane Katrina that “George Bush doesn’t care about black people.”
As for the toll all the recent drama has taken on his marriage, a source admitted, “It’s just been hell for them. Kanye’s behavior took a huge toll on their marriage. But Kim feels relieved he is getting the help he needs. She thinks this is what it will take to save him — and help their marriage.”
