Kanye West is staying in Paris to avoid being on Kim Kardashian’s reality show

Here are some more photos of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West out and about in NYC yesterday. Two days in a row! Kanye let Kim famewhore him two days in a row! Kanye doesn’t look too happy about it, but he’s really been looking miserable with Kim for a while now. Is it the end? Or are they going to power through for another year or so? Dunno. But Radar says Kanye has been keeping his distance because he doesn’t want to be keeping up with Kardashians.

Their get-together in New York on Monday won’t be for long. It’s only a matter of time before Kanye West will be back working in Paris and staying as far away as possible from Kim Kardashian‘s reality TV world, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

Kanye is recording in Paris and a source familiar with the situation tell RadarOnline: “He doesn’t want to appear on Keeping Up with the Kardashians and being out of the country made that impossible.”

The perfect excuse? While some may think so, Kim has explained their separation by blaming work commitments. But a source tells Radar that Kanye’s team has advised him that appearing on the Kardashian reality shows is bad for his brand, and his bottom line.

“Kanye did appear on the show several times before he and Kim hooked up but that was because he was trying to get with her. Now that he has her, Kanye wants nothing to do with the reality shows. He most likely won’t appear at all in the upcoming season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Kanye won’t even let Kim talk to him on the phone while cameras are rolling. Kanye wants to maintain his private life,” the source says.

During an interview that Ryan Seacrest did with the Kardashian clan for an E! special Kim revealed that the rapper didn’t have time to appear on the show because of his work schedule, but “always enjoys watching it on television.”

Our sources beg to differ with the sex tape star. “Kanye thinks the reality shows are a waste of time, and contribute nothing. He wants Kim to focus on her fashion designs, and maybe pursue an acting career. But he wants her to quit the reality shows.”

Ha, Kris Jenner will have something to say about THIS. Anyway, Kim already said that she’s contractually obligated for like two or three more seasons, and she plans to honor her contract. You should know that reality show “seasons” are like 13 episodes filmed over a month, so she could knock out three seasons this year easily, and then Kim and ‘Ye could live happily ever after. Ha.

Meanwhile, Kim is still talking about her pregnancy and she’s alluding to the fact that she’s miserable:

After a bumpy start, Kim Kardashian has finally found her pregnancy sweet spot.

“Now I think I’m past all the awkward phases and stages, and once you feel the baby kick, it’s a whole new experience,” the mom-to-be tells the Huffington Post.

“I finally really embrace it. I love it now, but it took a minute. It was a lot … of body changes and stuff.”

Kardashian, 32, has even managed to allow her fears of the future — mainly the labor and delivery of her first child — to fade away.

“At the beginning, that was what I feared the most, and now, I mean, it’s inevitable,” she says of giving birth. “It’s gonna happen — I’m really not worried or nervous.”

The reality star and her boyfriend Kanye West already know whether they’ll be filling their home with shades of pink or blue — but they’re not sharing. And with so much media attention, the expectant actress admits the couple have had to get creative to keep the baby’s sex a secret.

“We buy all white,” she says with a laugh. “Or we’ll go and buy both [girl and boy clothing], and then no one will know!”

[From People]

I can’t really hate on Kim for being scared of the delivery. I suspect that she’s already scheduled a C-section anyway, and I have no judgment for her about that. I will have a panic attack if I even think about childbirth and now that I’m watching Call the Midwife regularly, my childbirth fears have gotten MUCH worse. But seriously, Kim is going to have the drugs and the C-section. Bet on it!

Also – it’s been confirmed by Life & Style that Kim and Kanye will be at the Met Gala together on May 6th! Kanye is performing and it’s believed that Anna Wintour was trying to deny Kim for the second year in a row, but I guess Wintour relented. Kim is going to be there!

    Trouble in paradise?! Two the biggest attention whores ever together and somehow it doesn’t work. Love it!

  2. JenD says:

    I like how the article refers to her as a “sex tape star.”

  3. kristine says:

    It sounds like a good move on his part. Kris was on her show and look how that turned out. I hate kanye but I like that hes not letting her exploit their relationship any further.

    • jess says:

      Yeah…but he chose to knock her up, knowing full well about her reality show. He should suck it up, be a real man, and be there to support her during this pregnancy. Can’t he just not sign a release so they can’t use his footage, or did that disappear when he signed one years ago?

  4. dorothy says:

    Um, is she sure he’s not staying in Paris to avoid being WITH HER?

  5. Carolyn says:

    Wow they sure look happy together!

  6. A says:

    To stay away from Kim and her family, yes. He should’ve thought of this before he dipped it raw though.

  7. Deb says:

    These two are my guaranteed laugh every day. I can see why Anna relented & allowed Kim to attend the Met, after all kspew is on the guest list. With standards that low next it will be LiLo attending. Question is how fast will Ye beat feet back to Paris?

  8. virginia5 says:

    I don’t understand why people feel bad for Kim, because Kanye has not seen her for awhile. If Kim can fly all the way to africa to go to some club, she can fly to paris and see the guy that knocked her up.

    I have no sympathy for her.

  9. Nicolette says:

    “Expectant actress”? On what planet is she an actress? She’s finally embracing her pregnancy, wow I embraced both of mine the moment I found out about them. He looks absolutely miserable, like he’d rather be anywhere else.

  10. Jenny says:

    Kanye needs to shut up with his grandiose ideas about his talentless girlfriend. We dont need Kim pursuing an acting career. Let her stick with the reality shows.

    • Erinn says:

      Ahaha, don’t expect him to be logical. He is the man who said that he “has a little baby Tourettes … maybe not quite diagnosed, but the truth just comes out like accidentally”. Kanye and Kim make a brilliant couple.

    • DIANE says:

      She can pursue an acting career all she wants. I think I’ll take up figure skating and shoot for the next Olympics. Same odds. As far as her talent goes, well, I haven’t seen her sex tape(s?). Maybe she was faking it. Maybe that’s where we’ll see her acting her fat ass off.

  11. Faye says:

    It’s so obvious that he’s over her. Look at those pictures of him meeting Jay-Z the other day versus him walking around with Kim the same day. It was hilarious. You’d think Jay was carrying his first child.

  12. Queenfreddie says:

    Kanye looks miserable . I wonder if he gets pap’d as much in Paris (on his own) as he does when he’s with Kim? I mean he probably likes her (maybe loves her) but can’t stand how she calls the paps every time their together, plants stories to TMZ etc .Or he’s really over her.

  13. Nicole says:

    Maybe he’s keeping away because she’s pregnant. Pregnant women aren’t all nasty but i’ll bet the already filterless, entitled Kim is a misery to be around. It’s wimpy of him but it may actually prolong the relationship.

  14. HH says:

    You gave in Wintour?! I’m disappointed. Kim is constantly looking for ways to cement herself and this was the holy grail. Anna you’re clearly not as powerful as I (or you) thought you were.

  15. valleymiss says:

    They’re also having the same issue that Kim and Hump had: that Kim wants to live in LA near her family, and Kanye wants to live elsewhere. Hump wanted to live in Minnesota, right? Also, I recall Amber Rose saying stuff about how Kanye is a workaholic and it helped kill their relationship.

    I noticed in a thread yesterday about Kim that lots of ppl were calling her a gold digger. I hate Kim and can say a lot of vile things about her, BUT…I don’t think of her as a gold digger at all. She married Hump (who made significantly less than her) to expand her brand and make her more $, but she didn’t marry him to have HIS $. She’s always seemed pretty intent on making her own $. I would imagine her net worth is around the same as Kanye’s. Kim doesn’t seem to be a woman who wants a guy’s $ – rather, she wants a guy who will somehow translate into a way for HER to make more $. Gold diggers tend to be lazy and want to be taken care of financially. Kim is a lot of things, but she really works hard at “whatever” it is that she does. Lol

  16. Dawn says:

    Well than I have lost all respect for Ms. Wintor. Who will she invite next…Jenna Jameson? Kimode wins again. This makes me absolutely sick to my stomach. Yeah it’s so hard to walk around and have your picture taken and so hard to read a script of how you will converse with your family and it still sounds fake. Sick,sick, sick. I have absolutely no respect for anyone who treats this phony as if she is some kinda star. She is a star of nothing. Yuk.

  17. judyjudy says:

    It’s odd to see a pregnant woman in black all the time looking sullen. It looks like she’s been in mourning. No joy or warmth. :-(

  18. Mar says:

    You can see that she had chin lipo because the sides of her face on the bottom are folding

  19. anoneemouse says:

    He always looks so happy when she is around…lol

  20. Dani says:

    I kind of have to agree with her that pregnancy is hard in the beginning, especially for first timers. I just hit 5 months and it finally sank in that I’m not fat, but I’m pregnant. Your body changes a lot and I can’t hate on her for admitting that it was hard at first. I had mornings where I would sit in bed and cry because my clothes didn’t fit.

    • Hakura says:

      And there’s absolutely *nothing* wrong with that. It’s just that she was complete denial for SO long. At least you know your non-pregnant clothing won’t fit/flatter your pregnant body. She hasn’t seemed to get that all this time.

    • Miffy says:

      There’s a molecule of what I’d call respect (for want of a better word) for Kim for publicly saying pregnancy is not what she thought it was going to be and she’s not enjoying it.

      Pregnancy is hard. It’s difficult to keep up with your own body changing (I’d imagine moreso for someone who made part of their career off of their figure).

      I know I didn’t enjoy my pregnancy, I was always excited to meet my baby but I spent most of that time thinking ‘Sea horses have it frigging MADE’. Pregnancy isn’t fun for everyone.

      • Hakura says:

        @Miffy – “‘Sea horses have it frigging MADE’.

        Lol! Havent thought about that since I was 12, obsessed with animals & reading one of my ‘weird animal facts’ books. Great reference n__n

        And at least physically, I don’t think pregnancy is really fun for anyone.

      • the original bellaluna says:

        Miffy, I think it depends on one’s level of maturity, experience, and number of pregnancies.

        With my first, I ate like a horse, walked to & from work every day (right up until my due date), gained a ton of weight, and felt GREAT. I was like “this ain’t so bad!” And he was so beautiful.

        With my second, I was so sick I was hospitalised for a week, lost my job, couldn’t drive (due to the sicks), and was just…kinda over the whole thing. But I did hold/rub my baby belly, and sang to it and talked to it. And she was glorious.

        With my third, I was so grateful to actually be pregnant again (he wasn’t supposed to be), I was devastated that I was pregnant at my age and enthralled at the same time. I talked to him, sang to him, cradled him, cuddled him…just ADORED all of it. And he is so precious to me (as are my other children)!

      • Hakura says:

        I’m currently 27 (as of a few days ago, anyway ^^), & have never been pregnant.

        I can only say what my mom’s experiences were. My parents were married a few years before deciding to try, which happened pretty fast. She said it wasn’t too hard, the usual average experience. Only difference was that 2 weeks after my due date, I *still* didn’t seem to want to come out xD I managed to become a tiny ’5’1 tattooed pain in the ass, according to my mom =)

        6 years later with my little brother, he actually had the same due date as me. But he came 2 weeks early. (with some difficulties related to his Cystic Fibrosis, requiring immediate stomach surgery). He had to stay in the hospital a few weeks, but still managed to become a tattooed 6ft tall muscular pain in the ass xD For which we’ve always been thankful.

  21. Relli says:

    Well sure i mean she is a busy business woman, doing businessy things all the time, SHE has priorities people!

  22. epiphany says:

    Kanye is staying in Paris to avoid being with Kim! Have you ever seen a more miserable and beaten man? He lit up like a Christmas tree when he saw Jay-Z, and the mother of his child makes him look like he’s on his way to an execution. #OVERIT

  23. Diva says:

    All she had to do was get knocked up by Kanye to make it to the Met Gala lol. I think she is going to get a c section too and then get tucked/sucked afterwards.

  24. Lindsey says:

    That look on his face is the look of misery and regret.

  25. Amom says:

    C-sections are also pretty brutal. Just saying.

  26. dcypher1 says:

    Kanye always looks pissed when hes with kim. Im sure lucifer would never let kim just leave like that even when the shows done. Kim sold her soul for money and fame so kim will be stuck doing reality tv forever now thats hell.

  27. JL says:

    Ok, I’m going to die shortly after typing this…

    Smart Man

    Oh that hurt, true but I feel my life and dignity sliding away saying that about Kanye.

  28. ladybert62 says:

    So this is love? ha ha – well in these pictures, he looks more miserable than the pregnant Kim!

    No sympathy from me. He knew what she and her family were like and he jumped into it anyway!

  29. Dreadwings says:

    Who knows, maybe Kanye learned a lesson from Kris Humphries, a wise man learns from others’ mistakes, maybe he followed the whole case from beginning to end, it is probably aware that the same may happen to him … or does not want to be the new Kris Humphries . He may lose a lot more than Kris , so he keeps a safe distance

  30. The Original G says:

    He’s right about her reality show. His association with it, does cheapen his actual image.

    What’s the long-term prospects for a relationship when one of the partners has total disdain for the other’s work?

    Why is she staying at a hotel? Why isn’t she staying with Kanye? They did buy a house together.

    I’m preparing myself for leather diaper pants.

  31. capepopsie says:

    I´ve never been a fan of the Khardashians, probably never will be. BUT I do feel sorry for her now! She should be enjoying the love and attention of the father, as should every pregnant woman by the way, without being rediculed in public for, well for almost everything! Just saying. Famewhore or not. And what about the Child? Doesn´t anyone feel concerned about the baby? If the mother is unhappy it affects the baby. And I really Think that ALL Children should be
    welcomed to this World with love, even her baby!I really hope this picture we´re getting of the situation is wrong for the sake of all parties involved. I really, truly hope this pregnancy isn´t another way of getting attention, because that would be disgusting and would be exploiting an unborn baby. Nobody can be that mean, can they? :(

    • bluhare says:

      We’re talking about a Kardashian here, capepopsie. The people who had Courtney/Scott do fake lovey dovey crap at Kim’s wedding to amp ratings. The same people who had Kim get married to amp ratings.

      And make money, of course. I hope that baby is loved instead of being thought of as an accessory.

    • StormsMama says:


      Unfortunately for her though
      One reaps what she doth sew!
      While I agree that poor baby deserves love first
      Reality says narcissist parents are the worst
      On the plus side she looks really lovely for a wake
      She’ll eat it too, her piece of cake

      • Hakura says:

        @StormsMama – “She’ll eat it too, her piece of cake

        Lol, before reading that last part, it looked like you were saying she’d ‘eat’ her baby. I knew she was bad, but didn’t realize she’d taken up cannibalism. (Maybe she *did* eat Mercy? o.o) xD!

  32. Grace says:

    What is wrong with Kanye’s head? Is he going bald? It looks like there are missing patches.

  33. Miffy says:

    Props to Kanye for attempting to encourage her to pursue a career other than reality tv (even if his ideas of her designing and acting are deluded). Even if it’s not true, it’s nice to think there’s someone in her circle telling her that she can do more than just whore out her personal life.

  34. HappyJoyJoy says:

    That poor baby. Is she capable of loving anything else other than surgical procedures? That remains to be seen. As far as Kanye goes… I mean, he knew better. They look miserable. I don’t feel bad for either.

  35. jwoolman says:

    Their body language seems so off in these pictures that I googled

    Kim kardashian Kanye “body language”

    and saw some interesting stuff. Famous body language expert Lillian Glass had an article about them last year around this time (don’t know if she’s said anything recently, deadlines are looming). Glass said way back then that they did not look in love or anything close to it, even when kissing or holding hands for the cameras. She saw persistent anger in both. In contrast, she said pictures of Kanye and Amber Rose showed two people genuinely in love with each other. So Kanye is definitely capable of being head over heels for a woman and showing it in pics – just not for Kim. Whatever possessed her to get pregnant with this guy? Unless she really is faking it… Her bathroom photos were photoshopped in other ways, so I suppose the belly could be faked also. But it’s getting kind of late for a fakeroonie miscarriage, so maybe not.

    The difference between Kanye’s pics with Jay-Z the other day and his pics with Kimmie Koo here is rather startling. He looks genuinely happy to be with Jay-Z. With Kim, not really. Is it possible that Kim actually had a fling with someone else and Kanye found out later that the baby isn’t his? He seemed happy about it at first, but then fairly soon after his announcement- he seemed so seriously uninterested and unhappy. He might be like a cat, unable to disguise his true feelings.

  36. ok so my first comment to this post was deleted bc I guess it was offensive lol but I just hate everything that Kim K is about and I guess I ranted too much. I called her a star…A pornstar bc of her distorted body. I also called her fat and I had a baby last year and usually am sympathetic. pregnant women are beautiful,…. not her. All I see is weird lips and ginormous…other parts, And the feminist in me is going to feel bad bc I dont believe in calling women fat . But then she said what she weighed. And im quite short and had a baby last year and knew what I weighed and she is such a liar …so I still hate her and she is fat. I feel better. lol

    • Dawn says:

      I doubt you were all that offensive, it’w weird on what they will let in one day and not the other. But everything you said is pretty right on. I can’t stand her or her family or him. Can you imagine how boring have a conversation with her must be when it all about herself and how brave she is? She is NOT well educated and I’m sure it shows. This relationship will be over soon as well.

  37. The Original Mia says:

    I cannot wait to see what monstrosity she’s going to wear to the Met Ball!

    I have zero sympathy for either of these narcissistic twats. Neither loves the other as much as they love themselves. So, Kim will be a single mother with a reality show and Kanye will be a weekend daddy hiding out in Paris, working on his craft. They deserve to be shackled to each other for the next 18 years.

  38. Cordelia says:

    I want those shoes. Anyone happen to know who makes them?

  39. dagdag says:

    Well, Kanye got his perfect bitch.

    Maybe he ordered more than he can eat.

  40. Susie Q says:

    Look at his face in the third pic…obvious they were apart for so long because they wanted to be. No love between these two.

  41. Dee Cee says:

    He doesn’t want too many happy with you taped pix in case she pulls a He needed me for publicity and used my fame for profit..

  42. diane says:

    i cant stand looking at pics of kim, she just messed up her face so much. why, kim?! she used to be so beautiful before. also you can see her spanx line..

  43. Haolebunny says:

    I have to confess, I watched about 10 minutes of the Seacrest “Special” last night. I was beyond fascinated by Kim attempting to speak around her lips or maybe her veneers? Did anyone else subject themselves to a loss of brain cells like I did? And, if so, did you notice the way she was speaking? Was it her lips interfering? Or is she just inarticulate in addition to all the other weirdnesses she has?

  44. janie says:

    Does anyone recall if she has mentioned or shown the ultra sound of the baby? My G’daughter e-mailed me hers? Our little peanut was not quite 9weeks.

  45. iseepinkelefants says:

    Didn’t he say “my girl’s a superstar all from her home movie” um how does he think she got that way? The only reason she has her fortune is because of that reality show.

  46. Jade says:

    On a less bitchy note, I quite like Kanye’s style here. Usually he sucks.

  47. SydneySpy says:

    Why is he always walking behind her?
    Is it so she can’t see the look on his face?
    Why, if they are so in wuv, don’t they ever hold hands?
    Why does she never smile? I know her face is pretty much frozen, but even Lindsay Lohan (and gawd knows what a mess she is) cracks a frequent smile. She always has that “posed”, fixed look.
    Is it that she thinks she photographs better with the trout pout, physically cannot smile or is she truly that miserable?
    Why hasn’t that laminated, fake, mean old bitch, Wintour, retired and taken up knitting?

  48. lena80 says:

    I guess I’m the only one that thinks Kanye is the one that wanted a baby and not Kim???? She was with Reggie for years and spoke over and over and over about being married before having kids. So if she was they type to “trap” a man, my money would have been on her “trapping” Reggie Bush. I think Kanye was instrumental in getting KK to change her mind about babies simply because Kanye’s ex was pregnant, Kim’s ex is expecting a child, and Jay Z has Blue Ivy….I guess it’s easier for women to project and blame the woman though.

    • Hakura says:

      I still always got the vibe that the pregnancy was un-planned/accidental. It appeared out of nowhere, & she *never* seemed happy about it. More like a sheepish shrug “I’m pregnant.”

      I still feel sorry for Khloe. She’d give anything to have a baby with her husband, & here Kim is crying & whining about how the pregnancy is getting in the way of *her* lifestyle. Callous of her, at best.

  49. annaloo. says:

    God, they both are so ugly

  50. skuddles says:

    Yes, of course, he’s staying in France to avoid her reality show… nothing to do with him wanting to avoid HER right? :)

    I think he’s at the point now where he’s hopes if he just keeps ignoring her she’ll take up with some other guy – because this is not a woman who can cope without a man in her life. And then he’ll be off the hook. Except he won’t. Sorry Kanye but you sold your balls to the devil.

  51. maria says:

    wow if I were Kim I would not go to Anne’s party since she is only relenting to make Kanye happy. She is not wanted there!
