Last week, Radar claimed that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have barely spent any time together – or even in the same city at the same time – since they got married in May. By Radar’s calculations, Kim and Yeezus have spent only nine nights together since the wedding. Hm. I tend to believe that they barely spend any time together, but that was the case before the wedding too. Doesn’t anyone else remember how Kanye pretty much abandoned Kim while she was pregnant? He was in Paris practically the whole time she was knocked up in LA. And besides that… he’s still touring. I don’t know if the Kimye sky is falling or if this is just their “normal.” Radar says that Kim is super-unhappy these days and “the light” is gone from her eyes.
Kim Kardashian is increasingly unrecognizable to those around her — and this time her plastic surgeon is not to blame. A source close to the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star tells RadarOnline.com exclusively that she has “morphed into” a “completely different person” since hooking up with her husband Kanye West — and those around her are concerned.
“Kim has totally morphed into the person that Kanye envisioned her to be,” the insider said. “She’s changed. From demanding Kim overhaul her wardrobe, to forcing her to hang out with his friends, Kanye has just completely taken over her life. Kim doesn’t have any interests of her own that Kanye doesn’t approve of. He constantly scrutinizes Kim, and she’s constantly walking on eggshells around him,” the source claimed. “She begins every sentence with ‘Kanye thinks so and so,’ and ‘Kanye wants this and that.’”
“There seems to be a lack of playful banter between Kim and Kanye, and laughter,” the source said. “By all appearances, Kim looks like she has it all — a perfect husband, and a beautiful daughter — but the light and joy in her eyes is gone.”
It wasn’t always that way. With boyfriend Reggie Bush, who she dated on and off from 2007 to 2010, “Kim was a totally different person!” the source said. “There was so much laughter and joking between them. They were really a cute couple, and very much in love. Kim absolutely lit up when Reggie would enter a room.” She moved on to an ill-fated marriage to Kris Humphries, but even that wasn’t enough to extinguish her flame with Bush.
For a brief period of time after Kardashian filed for divorce from Humphries, she “secretly began to date Reggie again,” according to the source. “There were serious talks between the two to really make the relationship go the distance. Kim even told Reggie he was the love of her life.”
However, Bush “didn’t want to be involved in any of the Kardashian reality shows and all of their family drama 24/7,” the source explained. “He wanted Kim to move in with him, away from Southern California. She refused, and the brief reconciliation was over. Two weeks later, Kim began dating Kanye, and the rest is history.”
In the end, according to a source, recent pictures of Kardashian tell it all.
“She tells everyone how happy she is with Kanye,” the source said. “But if that’s true, why does she look so sad all the time?”
Yeah, here’s what I believe: Kanye is controlling and demanding and Kim lets him have his way a lot because he is incredibly mercurial. I also think she’s particularly dead-eyed these days, but that’s been happening for a while and I think Kanye is only partly to blame. I think her dead-eyed, Famewhore Real Doll vibe these days is more about how Lucifer’s Homegirl raised her, pimped her, sold her, monetized her and made her think of herself as a product and nothing else. Barbies don’t have feelings. Plastic doesn’t cry.
What I don’t believe: that Kim has lingering feelings for or about Reggie Bush. I really don’t think she cares. He dated a really budget-looking version of Kim anyway. He’s the one with the hang-up, not her.
