Kim Kardashian thinks Kanye West ‘just has a problem controlling his impulses’


Here are some photos of Kim Kardashian on Friday in LA. Such a hot mess, my God. I feel the same way now that I felt during Kim’s pregnancy: what the hell does she have against sweatpants?! Why does everything she wears have to be skintight, unflattering and two sizes too small? I truly believe Kim thinks that she’ll look smaller if she wears smaller clothes. No, honey. That’s not the way it works.

Anyway, given the craziness that Kanye has unleashed over the past month, many people are wondering aloud if Kim and Kanye’s marriage will survive. People Magazine has issued a series of exclusive stories throughout the week, all with “unnamed sources” dropping some interesting quotes about what’s really going on. The basic gist is that Kim doesn’t like Kanye’s constant tweeting, but their marriage is okay. Not great, but okay. And here’s the latest People story spelling that out.

It’s been a rough week for Kim Kardashian West in the midst of Kanye West’s media chaos. In recent weeks, a series of Twitter rants have left the public and some of West’s friends questioning his mental health, but it seems the rapper’s actions may be taking a toll on his wife.

“It’s been a rough week for Kim,” a Keeping Up with the Kardashian source tells PEOPLE. “She has lots of support from her family though. Everyone knows that Kanye, once in a while, goes on public rants and they are all very understanding that it’s exhausting for Kim. It’s like a tick that he has.”

However, Kardashian West looked to be in good spirits on Thursday as she and longtime friend Jonathan Cheban were spotted out in Beverly Hills. She even did a live stream on Thursday, where she and Cheban joked about West’s rants after she used the slang term “chillax.”

“It’s so 1997, I’m, like, embarrassed,” Cheban said during the livestream, posted on Kardashian West’s website and app. “Thank God Kanye’s not in the car, or he would’ve had a ‘chillax’ rant.”

Still, the source tells PEOPLE that West, who is currently in Paris, has trouble “controlling his impulses” and “Kim just wants him to calm down and stop. When he starts his rants, it’s very difficult for him to stop. When he starts venting, it’s like he needs to get it all out. Kanye might seem mentally unstable at times, but there has never been any concern for Kim, or the kids. Kanye just has a problem controlling his impulses. It’s not anything that usually affects their everyday life. Their marriage is not perfect, but there are no plans to split.”

[From People]

Eh. I’ll admit that I don’t really overthink Kanye. He’s been this way for years, you know? I’m always surprised when people act like it’s a new thing, that he goes off on Twitter rants or throws tantrums or makes megalomaniac statements. He’s being doing that for years. So, I’ll say this – Kim probably sees it first hand more than any of us, and she’s always known whom she married. And of course she has no plans to split from him – I really believe that she’s ride-or-die for him right now, especially after she just gave birth to the male heir, Saint West.

    God, what on EARTH is she wearing? Does she honestly look at herself in the mirror and think she looks “hawt”?

    • lilacflowers says:

      Does she own a mirror?

      • Jane says:

        Perhaps it’s the same one used by the Evil Queen in Snow White.

      • COSquared says:

        She probably thinks she’s the Snow White.

      • Paris says:

        Every morning, the Kim K asks the Magic Mirror the question “Magic mirror in my hand, who is the fairest in the land?”.
        The mirror always replies: “My Queen, you are the fairest in the land.” Kim K is always pleased with that, because the magic mirror never lies.

      • Mare says:

        It’s one of those fun house mirrors that makes you look tall and thin.

      • Sarah(too) says:

        Maybe they spent all their money on gold toilet seats. None left for a mirror. Yeezy spent it all on his “fashion” sweatpants line.

    • BNA Fn says:

      She looks hot, like sweating in private area. Not a good look.

    • Mia V. says:

      If she was bald, it would be Amber Rose.

      • PamelaJudy says:

        That’s exactly what I think most of the time when I see pics of Kim lately. I wonder whether Muva has noticed too?

    • CTgirl says:

      Kim would probably be more comfortable just going out in body paint. It’s not like she’s really covering up anything with outfits like this and that way she could get a new endorsement everyday painted on her ass. Hey Kris, I want 10% of the profits when you set this up.

    • Size Does Matter says:

      Spandex bicycle pants, check. Sheer top with bra (thank you for the bra), check. Fur coat, check. Sandals, check. Taste, absent.

    • Colette says:

      She has been wearing similar pants for two weeks.I’m starting to think she had surgery and the pants are some type of compression pants.

    • bettyrose says:

      Let’s be clear that *no one* should wear what she’s wearing. Would it be okay for a leggy, slender model type? No. Would it be okay under your clothing in sub zero temperatures? Yes. Because it’s underwear and that’s its role.

    • Tiffany says:

      I can’t tell you Jane, because I don’t get it.

  2. LookyLoo says:

    That outfit is horrible and makes her look bigger than she is. And it makes my butt itch that she’s wearing braids and acting like he invented them.

    • Wiffie says:

      Lmao, how does wearing braids turn into “acting like she invented them”?? She just HAS braids, she’s not swinging them around, saying “have you seen THIS before? I call these kraids. I made them up.”

      She literally is just walking around with hair.

      I mean she’s annoying, but seriously, lmao

      • jeanpierre says:

        Just look up “boxer braids”

      • DivineMsM says:

        She’s on her App doing “how to” on braids, etc. It’s cultural appropriation and she should be called on it (like everyone else was).

      • smith says:

        Cultural appropriation? So only American Indians can wear braids? Or is it African Americans?? Hurry and decide …someone is on the verge of being offended!

        The only culture grown up women who wear braids are appropriating is that of a grade school girl. My adopted eight year old Korean niece wears them all the time. I guess she’s in the wrong as I can’t find any cultural reasoning as to why she should be allowed to wear them …other than they keep her hair neat and she looks pretty.

        Personally I think they also look cute on adult women (worn judiciously of course) but I’m just trying to figure out who you’re shilling for …

        Your comment is out of control. What is happening to this world?

      • rosalee says:

        Braids are not cultural appropriation, age appropriation perhaps..last time I saw anyone wearing braids was at a Anne of Green Gables revival

      • Miffy says:

        Cultural appropriation… Oh my God, I’m done. DONE! What culture? Does Judy Garland in the Wizard of Oz qualify as her own culture? Because that’s the closest thing that hair looks to just about anything.

      • MB says:

        LOL to absolutely everything in this comment thread. Cultural appropriation? They are braids – and people from pretty much every culture since the dawn of time has worn them. I think you are getting confused with this and the whole Kylie / Cornrow argument and reaching for yet another reason to hate Kim K.

      • Mare says:

        She mad at Kylie for wearing braids now, like she invented it and Kylie is copying her.

      • Bejkie says:

        I’ve always thought these were called “French Braids”, so by wearing them my entire childhood & doing my daughters hair the same for school, was I actually guilty of cultural appropriation from the French?? Gasp!! How very dare I

    • PinaColada says:

      Koi heard about this controversy, but she never said she made them up- a uk mtv site credited her with making them a current trend. No one thinks she invented braids, everyone knows people have worn them forever. But she’s been wearing them, and no other style, for months so they’re claiming she’s creating a re-trend or trend or whatever. Is she? Idk. I haven’t seen a rash in chances of % of girls wearing braids. But that’s what they said. Personally, I dislike her intensely so I’m no supporter and I think her moment has passed and wish she’d disappear.

  3. Sumodo1 says:

    LA weather has been unseasonably warm, right? Yeah, that coat covering her ass is a brilliant idea. Numbskull.

  4. lisa2 says:

    All her cloths look like they hurt. Just looks painful to wear. Even this hairstyle on her looks painful.

    She just had her baby not too long ago. She gained weight. Just move on. She is no different than a lot of women; but stop trying to act as if nothing has changed. Wear more comfortable cloths.

    • lucy2 says:

      I agree, but even when she’s in good shape, she always looks uncomfortable. Too much surgery and ridiculously tight clothing.

  5. Pies says:

    She doesn’t look happy though…

  6. Turtle says:

    Kim is a Libra. Kanye is a Gemeni.

    What most people don’t realize is this is one of the best combinations in the zodiac.

    They make each other happy.

    She wouldn’t have had two kids if she wasn’t in it with him for the long haul.

    I legit think Kim loves Kanye and will stay right where she is.

    • swak says:

      They sure don’t look like they make each other happy. Also, just because she had two children doesn’t mean she’s in for the long haul. But the minute things go south, Kim will be out of that marriage. She had no qualms about going through with a marriage (to Kris H) that she had doubts about and then divorcing 72 days later.

    • Denisemich says:

      +1. Unless he starts cheating on her, this is until death for Kim.

      I don’t think any of this is a problem for Kim. I think all of this is a problem for Kris Jenner.

      Kris wants Kim and Kanye out of her house . Kris wants Kanye to stop talking about debt so it’s not associated with the Kardashian brand.

      None of his antics were a problem for Kris until he started talking about financial debt. Now, he is a problem, his clothing line is questionable and he needs an image consultant.

    • Valois says:

      It’s not that I don’t realize it- I think it is nonsense.
      And tons of people have kids without actually thinking about it.

      However, I don’t think that’s she plans on getting a divorce right now. But I wouldn’t rule it out in the future if he continues to be like that.

      • Fee says:

        She has made a too big image to leave. Love how its all about how she is dealing. No thinks if he is manic? No fan of him, but if he’s sick then again it’s all about her

    • Jay (the Canadian one) says:

      Same signs as my parents. They’re divorced. The zodiac doesn’t really count for anything.

      • KB says:

        Well to be fair to those who believe in Astrology, you and the OP are discussing sun signs which are meaningless to astrologists when looked at alone. If you don’t understand natal charts, aspects, synastry and all the rest, you’re not really talking about Astrology.

    • Cali says:

      Zodiac??? You CANNOT be serious!

    • LENA NOT DUNHAM says:

      i dont think its zodiac thing. i guess they are both narcissists and they only care abut themselves,no one has to make anyone happy here

    • Aubrey says:

      Kim and Kanye have matching pisces moon signs, while Amber Rose had an aries moon sign and she was way too strong willed for him.

  7. anner says:

    Her nose is getting smaller and smaller.

  8. jeanpierre says:

    When KK makes more sense than 90% of the internet these days. I’m downright cackling at this.

  9. Patricia says:

    Her body would look so fabulous in the right clothes. Right now she has a beautiful shape due to just giving birth. Celebrate it! For once the butt wouldn’t look outrageous (well, not as much as usual) because she has the extra weight and curves.
    I would love to see her in a nice dress that celebrates her womanly body, or any kind of clothes that fit and accentuate the motherly figure going on here.

    I may be reading too deep into it, but it makes me wonder if she’s happy about motherhood. After I gave birth my body was still huge, but I was very happy to be a mother and I just draped myself in pretty flowing clothes, embraced my curves, and didn’t worry about it. I would have had to feel pretty bad if I was trying to restrict and wrangle my body like this, just to look “sexy”. She ends up looking like she doesn’t even know where she’s going! Looks like spanx, coat, and sandals. Like she forgot the dress and forgot what the weather is.

    • Mare says:

      She’s too focused on her body because that’s all she has. She’s worried about not being the big moneymaker since it looks like Kylie is going for her crown.

  10. Snowflake says:

    Omg, what the h?ll is she thinking? Does she not have a stylist? I don’t think she does, its like she is doing everything that is against her body type. Capri pants make her look shorter and heavier. Tight spandex when you have thick thighs and hips? No no. If she wants to make herself look shorter and wider, she’s succeeded. If she deflated her butt, she wouldn’t have to hide it. She liposuctions the rest of her body, why not her butt?

    Also, re kanye, why does he have a mental disorder because he rants and raves and makes outrageous statements? So does Donald Trump, no one says he is mentally ill. It’s called publicity. That’s why they do it. That and they both have big egos. Maybe narcissist, that’s about it

    • swak says:

      Before he would rant at his concerts. Now that he isn’t touring then he has found a new outlet for his rants – Twitter. Also, I would be worried that he cannot control his impulses. Right now it’s just words, but it could escalate to physical (not saying it will, but could). I don’t believe Kim is in it for the long haul – children or no children – she has a hard time sharing her space.

      • me says:

        Imagine a wonderful plot twist where it was actually Kim who was ranting on Kanye’s twitter the whole time. Ha ha that would be epic.

      • Jwoolman says:

        Yea, I would definitely worry about a man with impulse control issues around children. The blind leading the blind… But really, he might become unglued once his kids are older and actually disagreeing with him. He should not be allowed to be alone with the kids even now. A baby crying or a toddler being a toddler can drive the most mellow person up the wall. Hopefully a nanny is always there.

    • Beatrice says:

      Kanye is her stylist. Enough said! Those Spanx layers are screaming!!

    • kanyekardashian says:

      um, hello? Narcissism is a personality disorder, and Kanye? Totally 1000% bipolar. That’s a mental illness.

    • Jwoolman says:

      I wouldn’t be so sure that no one thinks Donald Trump is mentally ill… 🙂

      Me, I’m not sure what planet The Donald came from. Or lives on.

  11. What the..Kim is wearing goggles, and then feeling her way around–maybe she is blind and can’t see in the mirror. Please someone, tell her she looks like a clown.

  12. NewWester says:

    If Kim starts dressing in more comfortable and proper size clothes then we will know the marriage is ending. Kanye must still be telling her what to wear

  13. Shambles says:

    Sorry but it makes me really sad that this post has 15 comments and growing and the Kesha thread only has a handful. I see the irony in the fact that I’m adding to the comments here, but it honestly disappoints me. A woman being forced to work with her abuser vs. Kim Kardasian’s spandex crotch. What a time to be alive

    • LookyLoo says:

      Sony has indicated that it would give her another producer and/or a producer of her choice. She does NOT have to work for Luke. However, the only result she wants is to be let out of her contract (some say for money reasons). The court cannot create for her a contract that she didn’t negotiate for herself. A lot of new artists get stuck in situations like this.

      • Snowflake says:

        Working for someone who absused her? Why would she risk her career making false accusations against someone who can ruin her career unless it’s true? I believe kesha. She’s risking everything to get justice. This is the woman who was living in her car before she made it. I don’t believe she would risk all that just to get out of a çontract.

      • islandwalker says:

        Looky- Even if Sony “allows” her to work for someone else, they still have a rapist on their payroll. Someone else will take her place and the abuse will continue.

      • Valois says:

        LookyLoo, that is only half of the truth. Sony would give her another producer, but they would not advertize her music, promote her in any way or invest in her. Basically, she’d have to work for free in that scenario cause these albums wouldn’t make a lot of money.

      • daisy says:

        Why didn’t she report it to the police? And don’t give me the old “some victims take yrs to talk about it” I was raped at gunpoint in my early 20s and he told me he would come back & kill me if I called cops…..know what I did..called the police, went to hospital, filed a rape kit. Stop giving rapists power by not reporting the crime. And she says it happened over 10yrs…come on women..all the Cosby the damn police and gather the evidence.

      • paranormalgirl says:

        That’s YOU. That’s what YOU did, daisy. It doesn’t mean that other women don’t behave differently in a similar situation. Please don’t demean other women who chose to react differently than you did.

  14. Yabby says:

    I don’t think she is in it for the long haul. She and Kanye still haven’t moved in together. Homegirl has one foot out the door.

    • swak says:

      And according to DM, their house won’t be ready for months.

      • MediaMaven says:

        it will never be finished. She wants to live with PMK because she has the benefit of 24/7 staff that PMK pays for, and Kanye wants to live with Riccardo.

      • Chrissy says:

        When will everyone realize that the marriage is only a business contract? They will never live together, Kanye will not give up Riccardo to be only with Kim and those poor kids were also part of the contract. The house is just a ruse to make people think these two are a normal couple when this is the furthest thing from the truth IMO. She will never leave her mother’s place when she gets everything done for there. It’s like she’s living in a hotel. So normal for a 35 yo married mother of two, non?

  15. Calico Cat says:

    When I was a kid I would sometimes take the heads off my dolls and glue them on other dolls. There was this one time I took a Barbie head and placed it on a much larger Godzilla toy.

    That top picture reminds me of when I did that!

  16. Lbliss says:

    Is she going a new Crurlla Deville look every single time she steps outside? Baffled. Like does she have an exclusive contract with “Fur” or something? Give it a rest Kim. No one likes anyone wearing “fashion” that is so inhumane.

  17. Tiffany27 says:

    Getting into those clothes must be excruciating. Getting OUT of those clothes has to be searingly painful.

  18. islandwalker says:

    And so it begins. The leaking of “trouble behind the scenes” script for divorce. All planned out for their show as Kim suffers the pain of her desolving marriage.

  19. Chem says:

    I would never wear sweatpants out.

    • Capepopsie says:


      I sometimes, like today, wear sweat
      pants when walking the doggies.
      Very convenient. Otherwise only at home
      Chilling. ☺️

    • Patricia says:

      Me neither, unless I’m just taking my toddler for a walk around the block once in a while. And even then I’m like “wow. I’m really doing this”.
      But what’s funny is I don’t judge anyone who does wear them out. I really don’t! I just can’t do it myself. I’d rather throw on some jeans or even a skirt, which is comfy. I just don’t like to be that casual out and about.

      At home they are my everything.

    • Kate says:

      Once upon a time, I would have. Now I would never. BUT I will wear yoga pants, so eh, probably the same thing.

    • Daria Morgendorffer says:

      “I would never wear sweatpants out.”


      @Capepopsie, I agree. Sweatpants are fine when it comes to something quick and simple like walking a dog, but for me that’s where it ends. I’ll wear them if 1) I don’t actually have to get out of the car, 2) I’m sick, 3) there’s been a blizzard, 4) I’m just going to be right outside the house.

      Nothing against anyone who chooses to wear them, I just don’t personally care for it.

    • paranormalgirl says:

      I wear them out walking the dogs, or to the gym, or on quick errands. Not the kind with the elastic at the ankles, though. I hate those. Mine are more like fleecy yoga pants.

  20. YepISaidIt says:

    It’s not what she has against sweatpants. It’s what does Kanye have against sweatpants. I thought it was common knowledge – Kanye dresses her.

  21. mindydopple says:

    So let’s believe all those rumors about Kanye and Ricardo for a moment. Take this walk with me, Kim and Kanye are more of an agreement and friends. But conditional friends, he starts acting insane, Kim starts playing some angles, Ricardo sees it all and begs for Kanye to go to him. And bam! Kanye is gone, Kim can breathe and some where in Paris, Kanye is being asked gentle and concerned questions. Being given their medication again and getting taken care of by someone who loves him….

  22. Breakfast Margaritas says:

    Standing next to Jonathan Cheaban, she doesn’t look quite as heavy. He isn’t a big guy at all. It’s just that she has pair shaped body type, recently gave birth and won’t dress with this in mind. I’m sure if she had a stylist or just stopped allowing Krazye to dress her she would look adorable. She had cute outfits more often than not before Krazye West. How miserable must it be to have to tolerate a ranting fool every day? I say that as someone who purchased and enjoyed Krazye’ s first 2 albums.

    • Deedee says:

      Lol at the moniker, Krazye!

    • Daria Morgendorffer says:

      “I’m sure if she had a stylist”

      She does! Sadly enough. Her stylist is Monica Rose, who also dresses all of her other sisters as well as Gigi and Bella Hadid, Chanel Iman, and Chrissy Teigen.

      I think you’re right though, this hideous fur and spandex trend is probably Kanye’s work. I think he is insanely controlling for insisting on picking out his wife’s clothing. That’s crazy to me. It’s one thing to offer an opinion, but that whole thing with him clearing out her closet and buying her all new clothes that fit his taste was psycho.

    • kanyekardashian says:

      She and Krazye barely ever are in the same country together, so she doesn’t have to tolerate him much. Even if they did spend time together, she’s too dumb to know what a fool he is. She probably thinks it’s adorable and she’s lucky to have him. Total Edith Bunker, just not as nice.

  23. Cupcake says:

    I think this is all part of a plot line.

  24. Trashaddict says:

    Daily Mail has a hysterical prank video with Londoners trying to raise money to get Kanye out of debt. Brilliant.

  25. Daria Morgendorffer says:

    I saw these pics on some other website, I believe it was E!, and they noted that Kim was leaving a “cosmetic laser center,” so obviously she was having something done. These people kill me. “We’re all natural” yet they’re on a first name basis with every plastic surgeon in California.

    • Davy says:

      Are laser facials “plastic surgery”? Really?

      People get laser hair removal all the time – is that plastic surgery? How is a non invasive laser treatment considered surgery?

      If you’re not being put under and cut open, it’s not surgery. I see nothing wrong with getting laser facials and I certainly would if my photo was being taken every day and shared with the world.

      Call her out on a lot of things but this is ridiculous. Let the girl have a facial. Let her wear compression pants if she wants, maybe she is comfortable!

  26. word says:

    It’s been super hot in LA this week. How can she go out dressed like that? My God. Also, what made her come out of “hiding”? Last time she waited until she lost all the weight. This time she’s letting us see her weight gain. A distraction from the kanye mess perhaps?

  27. rudy says:

    I don’t think there is any way Kim could look more uncomfortable or wear clothing that is more unflattering to her figure. The shoes are …..I have no more words.

  28. JRenee says:

    She dresses for her desired target audience. ..

  29. Umila says:

    Whoa, usually I think hips are totally sexy. I mean, I love curves…but it’s about the shape. She’s always had wide hips and now they look over-wide somehow for her legs. Is it seriously cold enough there right now to necessitate a fur coat? That’s hysterical. Hope she never needs to journey to Siberia, because it’s going to be a lion king family massacre. Be prepared!

  30. Luciana says:

    I wish I could unseen her in that outfit. Good Lord! All the money in the World and she looks like THAT!

  31. Maleficent says:

    I only think she’s “ride or die” for him right now because she doesn’t want to suffer through a third divorce so young….the time is coming though. These types of sources leaking “insider information” always come across severely as the kardashian family laying ground work for the future split.

  32. yep says:

    Im not trying to shame her…as today I went out in mens slippers , long sweater, holey pants, and a shitty ponytail.
    But.. Im not chock full of money and getting papped.
    I think shes trying to make Kanyes hobo line a thing. If shes wearing it, then it must be awesome, is the line of thinking.
    Its an awful clothing line. Just awful. There is absolutely no draping a womans body beautifully with that guys imagination. None.
    Those coats are hiding how huge her bum got, as with all fat injections, when weight is gained, it goes where the fat cell friends are partying at. Im kinda sads for her. What seemed like a good idea, now has turned against her.

    • Snowflake says:


    • me says:

      I don’t think getting fat injected into your ass is ever a “good idea”. But hey what do I know. Kim is of her own doing. I have zero sympathy. The tides are turning with regards to the public’s perception of this family. Kris Jenner was boo’d at the iheartradio show this weekend. She was on stage presenting and was boo’d for a good 4 minutes lol. Maybe this will be the new “thing”. Keep boo’ing them until they go away.

      • Colette says:

        The Kardashians have been booed for years.Kim and Kanye were booed in 2014.Kylie and Kendall were booed last year at the Billboard Awards.People were saying the tide is turning.Caitlyn got a show after that.This year Khloe was given a new show.This family is like cockroaches,they aren’t going anywhere.God help us all.

  33. LAK says:

    I’m just here to see the divorce set up PMK is preparing.

  34. Angela says:

    Kim has looked totally miserable since she got married to Kanye. If you look at pictures of her when they were first dated and prior to that, she smiled frequently for pictures and had a fun, flirty style. It’s obvious now that Kanye “styles” her and she doesn’t dress well anymore. And I do agree that lately she especially looks like she’s trying to hide some post-surgery compression garments. The fur coat in this heat is too much.

  35. Anastasia says:

    Between the ankle length coats and the skin tight spandex, she must have the world’s worst case of swamp crotch.

  36. Kitty says:

    Has she not heard of “just my size clothing ” and she needs a better more supportive bra.

  37. Nik says:

    She is pretty big. Lipo then saggy skin she had tightened up. No one in their right body would walk around like that never changing for days other than her furs during NYFW.

  38. Bread and Circuses says:

    I like the braids on her; those are cute and funky.

    Only the pants are beyond redemption. If they were matte, not slightly shiny, it would have helped a great deal.

    I don’t believe their marriage is that genuine. I don’t think its all for PR but i do think he married what in his mind is arm candy and she married for what Kanye could do for her fame and influence in circles she previously didn’t have access to.
