After months of rumors, inferences, speculation and gossip, today comes the official news: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are divorcing.
The couple has 4 children, is together since 2014 after a wedding celebrated in Kardashian style in Florence, with all the clan, cameras and exclusive million dollars.
According to a source close to the couple, Kim would end the relationship as she can no longer live in a story that does not work. The woman has asked her husband for time to organize the future, but the divorce now seems inevitable.
On the other hand, for months it was rumored that the two lived apart: they were seen together only for meetings or official events, and the photos of a happy family on Instagram became less and less.
The problems probably started last year, when Kanye West announced that he wanted to run for president of the United States and added that Kim Kardashian would perform an abortion. His wife didn’t take these statements well, and in an interview she confided that Kanye suffered from bipolar disorder and was being treated for it.
Kim Kardashian believes in marriage, she has been married 3 times and she tried everything to save the family, but it seems that there was little to save.
The marriages of Kim Kardashian
In 2000, when she was only 20 years old, she married producer Dan Thomas, with whom she was married for 4 years. First marriage gone wrong.
In 2011 she begins a relationship with NBA star Kris Humpries: it is the golden age of the relauty “Keeping up with the Kardashians” so the relationship is born and dies under the eyes of the cameras. The two get married suddenly, with a ceremony documented by the reality show, but after just 72 days the marriage collapses. Marriage number two failed.
In 2012 begins the gossip about a possible relationship with rapper Kanye West. For a while the two do not say anything about their possible story, but Kim becomes pregnant with their first daughter, Norh West and the rappe announces it during a concert.
Follows the wedding in Florence, this time without cameras but are granted exclusive photos and videos for millions of dollars. The ceremony is luxurious, with the whole Kardashian Jenner family in full.
In 2015, about a year after the wedding and two after the birth of North, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West welcome their second son Saint. Kim will no longer be able to cope with pregnancies due to pre-eclampsia, so the two decided to rely on surrogate mothers and in 2018 and 2019 come Chicago and Psalm.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West: a business couple
Rumors narrate that the business sense of the Wests, has helped to undermine the relationship between Kim and Beyoncé. The singer and her husband are a couple that churns out money, known in their environment for having created a real empire.
It seems that the fact that Kim wanted to copy Beyoncé, forced Kanye and Jay-Z once great friends, to move apart.
In addition to his work as a rapper, Mr. Kardashian started a very successful sports line. Since the garments were practically rags, guess who helped the line become a big hit? Kim and family.
The entire Kardashian clan wore everywhere and at every opportunity, sweats, shoes, hats, sweatshirts and anything else the Yeezie Gap brand produced.
Having had a lot of kids in the family, sisters included, of course the line for the little ones was due. The Kardashians monetize everything, all they have to do is post a picture on Instagram and it’s trending.
Kanye, however, was now on the warpath, and decided to also produce a cosmetic line. Nothing wrong with that, except that the undisputed leader of the house in the industry, is Kyle Jenner. That it was a sign of discontent? Surely not liked by Kim, owner of its own line of cosmetics.
How will the Kardashian clan react to the divorce between Kim and Kanye?
By now it’s certain, the Kardashians dictate the rules if nothing else of their mixed family business. The momager Krhis, pulls the reins and if she decides someone is out of their loop that someone is done.
Despite this, for them the family is sacred and when children are involved you can even turn a blind eye. Proof of this is Khloe’s husband, the second, Tristan Thompson, who cheated on her when she was pregnant (something he also did with the mother of his first daughter, cheating on her with Khloe).
The man has not been removed but rather participates in family events as the father of little True. Same thing for Scott Disick, father of Kourtney’s three children, who continues to be an integral part of the business and of the family, despite having cheated on her without hiding too much.
In short, the Kardashians put family and business on the same level, in fact these two things are linked together by a very close, almost indissoluble bond. Kanye West seems to have never liked the overexposure of the family, so much so that he appeared a few times in the reality show. What will happen after the now inevitable divorce? The doubts will be clarified soon, probably with a public statement.
