Kim Kardashian & Kanye West are reportedly taking a break from one another

NBC Upfronts - Arrivals

It was really weird to be on Twitter last night. At the same time everyone was freaking out about the Washington Post’s story on Trump, the network upfronts were happening. E! News had live coverage of stars like Jennifer Lopez and Jenna Dewan talking about their shows as America descended into another self-inflicted crisis. It was the most bizarre counterprogramming. So, here are some photos of Kim Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian at the NBC Universal Upfronts yesterday. Both of them look like plastic dolls, so whatever (the internet has been calling them “waxworks”). Interestingly enough, sources claim that we could be seeing a lot more of Kim going solo in the months to come. British tabloids claim that contrary to the Kardashian-narrative, Kim and Kanye West are having big problems.

Next week will be Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s third wedding anniversary, and instead of posting luvey-wuvey couple shots all over social media like they would normally, the pair are set to spend the day 1,000 miles apart. In fact, heat magazine , out today, reports that the couple, who got married on 24 May 2014, could be preparing to split up.

“Right now, things are very tough for their marriage,” a source tells heat. Last week Kanye , 38, left LA for a remote mountain top in Wyoming, to get to work on his new album. He also deleted his beloved Twitter and Instagram accounts. Kim, meanwhile, is still in LA, posting on Instagram as usual – but she hasn’t posted a picture with Kanye in four weeks.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star even attended the Met Gala without him. An event they’ve been together at for the past four years. Heat’s source says the singer – who suffered a breakdown and was hospitalised in November – disappearing to the mountains is less about his music, and more about escaping their problems. They say: “We’re all concerned that this could be a sign their marriage is on the rocks and that they want time apart. Kanye is in a very odd place in his life right now, so he’s happy to take a break. Kim convinced him that this was the best solution for him, as it would allow him to take time out of the spotlight.

And Kim, 36, is apparently enjoying the space too.

“I think she’s enjoying the freedom to do what she wants, knowing Kanye’s out of the city and has a good crew around him.”

[From The Daily Mirror]

I know the sourcing on this is crap, but it feels truthy, doesn’t it? Kim and Yeezy were having big problems late last year and Kim was reportedly considering divorce. They allegedly worked through their issues, but Kanye has been largely MIA this year. I believe he’s off, working on a new album. I believe that Kim feels more relaxed without Kanye around. And I believe that this is probably some kind of trial separation.

    What the hell is she wearing?!

    • Trashaddict says:

      She should take the opportunity of being away from him to make some better fashion choices-

    • Truthie says:

      They look like some ridiculous Marvel/DC crime fighting duo. To the batcave Khloe!

  2. sarri says:

    Khloe has bought herself a new face.

    • Belle Epoch says:

      Isn’t it amazing? She bears no resemblance to her original self. Do you think having a sketchy father (either one) made her want to change her face?

      • sarri says:

        No idea.. but I have to be honest – I always thought Khloe is the normal one and doesn’t care about such things. Guess I was too naive lol.

    • Saras says:

      Calling Madame Tussauds we found your missing dummies!

    • ScrewStewRat19 says:

      Looks like she bought a new head! They both look like their heads have been photoshopped on their bodies. It’s so weird!

    • deevia says:

      Khloe is a monet situation. First glance, she resembles some hot exotic blonde until you zoom in the face and it’s the Kylie Jenner deformity again with the lips and filler. It’s like her old face is trying to crawl its way back.

  3. Clare says:

    Isn’t this kind of normal for their relationship, though? Correct me if I’m wrong, but I feel like he goes off for weeks/months to write/perform his music, while she remains in the US, doing her own thing. Like, didn’t he live in Paris for most of the year when writing/recording his most recent album?! Shrug.

    Besides, marriage is tough – throw in mental health issues, 2 kids, a meddling/evil mother, and the media…

    • Erinn says:

      I kind of wonder if Kanye is in some sort of treatment? Didn’t he delete all his social media recently? Who knows. But honestly, as much fakeness they put out, this one seems actually reasonable. And trial separations don’t always end in divorce. I’d be at least semi-surprised if they divorce any time soon.

    • Snowflake says:

      Yeah, I doubt they have ever been together very much at all. That’s what they both like, nothing new. Sounds like Kim is ready to move on though.

      • SM says:

        Wow. Kim is really setting a great example for the kids. Being your natual self is not beautiful. Be wax figue instead.
        This story may be true. They both were different people when they met. I think they found a connection because they both were narcisistic self absorbed fame whores. When you have family the dynamic shifts as well as priorities change in each relationship. Taking into account all that Kim has been though with the robery and his breakdown …it changes people and their relationship. It takes enormous strenght, empathy and love to come out together on the other side. Somehow I doubt that Kanye especially has that quality that would allow him to come out on the other side. So yeah, pretty believable

      • nikko says:

        I don’t think Kim can stay with anyone for a long period of time. It’s all about her and she gets bored. She should stay w/ Kanye. but she doesn’t want to take the time to make it work.

  4. Lightpurple says:

    Really bizarre tan lines there, Kim.

    • Jacqueline says:

      If i didnt know any betteri’d think someone was using the internet to make fun of me love, Kim💜

  5. Indira says:

    Honestly said, I think they’re separated anyway. Kris is probably already planning the divorce etc.

  6. iGotNothin says:

    Kim’s lacefront is bomb.

  7. RBC says:

    Why is there a green patch on Kim’s top?

    • JustJen says:

      I was wondering the same thing! WTH?

      • LaBlah says:

        I assumed initially that it was a logo that was in competition with the sponsors or this event but she’s not really a logo wearer these days and it looks like a floral pattern underneath. Maybe she’s trying to make big green post-its a thing? It wouldn’t be more bizarre and pointless than much of the rest of her wardrobe.

    • L says:

      she’s covering up the hole in her heart…

  8. Missy says:

    Kim looks awful, did she have implants in her cheeks or something

  9. Mia4s says:

    I don’t know if they will break up. They really love…what the other can do for their respective careers and the related publicity.

    • Annetommy says:


    • Babs says:

      Kim never did anything for Kanye’s career. If anything, this marriage jeopardized it. Kanye been tremendously useful for Kim’s career, and her family’s career also. Now he is not useful anymore and is going to be discarded. That’s sad but he was warned. I hope he’ll make it through this.

      • Squiggisbig says:

        I generally agree with this. But Kim did squash some of the rumors around his sexuality.

  10. Jem says:

    Oh please. This marriage was never traditional on any level. He’s closeted and complicated and nuts, and she’s just what’s she’s always been, a shallow fame wh$re.

    • minx says:

      Exactly that. Have they ever really lived together?

      • boredblond says:

        That was my first thought..they used to do photo ops with their kids, but I never thought they were together if no cameras were around.

    • Pandy says:

      Totally. They are both fame wh$res but that’s not enough to keep them together 4 evah. Who would have guessed it??? She might be able to milk another series out of her search for #4 or whatever the next guy would be.

    • Dex and Destruction says:

      Personally, I try not to diagnose others because I would prefer not to be diagnosed myself by someone other than my doctor. And, yes, I’m hypersensitive to this because I am in the position to be judged by others due to my mental illness. It can take years to find the right combination of meds for a person because you’re constantly upping the dose of one, cutting down the dose of another, adding a new one to your lineup… You get the picture. It’s a long and arduous process. I also have a problem when someone says, “He’s nuts.” Thanks for perpetuating the stigma of mental illness. Let’s just lock everyone in a padded cell who has suffered from an illness of the mind. I wouldn’t have such gross disregard for someone with cancer by saying,”They’re just gonna die anyway.” I don’t expect to change the minds of others or change their choice of descriptive words concerning the behavior of others, but I hope I can remind you to have a moment of reflection before throwing out the term “nuts.”

      • London Lozza says:


      • Suzanne says:

        Well spoken. Thank you. I have several friends who suffer from bipolar depression and at no time did I consider any of them “nuts”.

      • Dex and Destruction says:

        @London Lozza and @Suzanne thank you for your support.

        Mental illness is so often misunderstood and I do what I can to challenge the stigma surrounding it. Although, I’ll be the first to admit that I believe society, as a whole, has become very sensitive about policing what can be said and what can’t. It’s like everyone is waiting with bated breathe to be the judge, jury, and executioner when someone dares to use the wrong word. And I’m guilty just like the next for misusing words. Moreover, what I think makes mental illness so different is the fact that it’s a bit like the Wild West—meaning it’s uncharted territory. There isn’t a rule book that says, “Using words like ‘nuts’ or ‘bipolar’ or ‘looney bin’ have negative connotations; so don’t use them.” We are barely scraping the surface when it comes to people admitting they’ve dealt with mental illness, and celebrities are playing a huge part in that. But the “outing” stops at depression. Few ever speak about bipolar and/or other personality disorders. So the stigma is still very real. Someone who is bipolar isn’t likely to be the first one to raise their hand in a room when the questioned is asked. All of this to say, if we never talk about mental illness because of society’s ignorance towards it, then how can we draw the proverbial line in the sand and say, “These are words that are acceptable to use.” “And these are the words to stay away from when discussing mental illness.”

    • Josephine says:

      I never bought that he’s gay although I could believe that he’s bi, I guess. But when he was with Amber Rose, he actually seemed happy, into her, and . . . . even sexy. Amber made him look good. Kayne and Kim had zero, zip, absolutely no chemistry whatsoever. But I wouldn’t blame that on him being gay. I think Kim exudes the sexuality of a dead fish. I loved Kayne with Amber Rose – they two of them were hot together!

      • Lady D says:

        I liked him best with Amber Rose, too. They also made a great looking couple.

      • swak says:

        Actually, he could be gay and still be with Kim. Many people cover up their sexual preference by being in a heterosexual relationship. My hair dresser had 3 children with his ex-wife and in his FB profile put “prefer men”. But I tend not to comment on someone’s sexual preference as it is none of my business. It’s their business and no one else’s.

  11. Nicole says:

    Wow they do look like wax figures.
    And I’m not surprised if they are separated

  12. astrid says:

    If I had only seen the last photo and not read the post, I would have jumped to the conclusion that these were bad wax works of Kim and Khloe

  13. Secret squirrel says:

    Ba ha ha… Kayne is leaving Kim to date Taylor Swift because he made that b#tch famous so now she owes him!

    • Shambles says:

      So they’ll both be bearding for each other while Kanye dates Harry Styles and Taylor dates Kim.

      • Secret squirrel says:

        Don’t forget Kayne will be the next POTUS so will it be Kim, Taylor or Harry as FLOTUS??

  14. Babs says:

    I hope Kanye is okay and return with great music.

    • Jessie says:

      Ugh. Since his trump advocacy. I am never gonna be able to listen to him the same again. Anyways kendrick, chance the rapper and frank ocean do better work these days.

      • jwoolman says:

        Well, he was in a manic state at the time, so you might give him another chance if he ever stabilizes. Even if there is medication to help his condition, it can take a long time to find the right drug and the right dosage.

  15. PamelaJudy says:

    I dunno, he’d drive me nuts too. I caught an episode of the show recently (I know, don’t hate me, I was too lazy to find the remote). It was the one where Kim flew to Paris for Fashion Week or whatever and ends up getting robbed.

    Anyway there was a scene where Kanye arrived unexpectedly MID-TOUR cause he’d seen paparazzi pics of Kim and immediately had to fly to Paris to sort out her wardrobe. Seriously. He hated what she was wearing that much that he dropped everything, got on a gd plane, flew halfway around the world to pick her outfits! That’s not love. That’s control.

  16. WingKingdom says:

    So this is what Kim chooses to wear, and we can’t blame Kanye for her “fashion.”

    It’s so ugly.

  17. Chingona says:

    Why did Khole spend all her time losing weight and then get butt implants that make her look bigger than what she would be?

    • Sophia's Side Eye says:

      If she hadn’t gotten that fake butt, klohe’d have the best body in that whole family. Shame.

  18. swak says:

    While she had lost the “bling” since being robbed, she isn’t even wearing a simple wedding band. Let’s run with that . . . no wedding ring, marriage down the tubes! :)

  19. zan says:

    I kinda like what Khloe is wearing… Is that normal?? :P
    I would wear it to a fancy cocktail party somewhere in NYC

  20. Keri says:

    Their massive egos only know how to love themselves. They do not know how to love another person and deal with real emotions. This marriage was never going to last when things got tough.

  21. Snowflake says:

    With all the work Kim’s had done, wearing straight hair and sleek clothes is the worst thing she can do. Just draws attention to her facial work and too severe looking. She needs loose wavy short hair and more feminine clothing.

  22. Mamunia says:

    When can we get a break from this entire family?

  23. Beth says:

    Famous people who marry other famous people usually doesn’t work out. When you’re famous, everyone in the world knows everything about you and all about the good and bad of relationships. After a breakup, you’d have to see and hear about his or hers new life all over magazines and tv. Must be tough.

  24. Charlotte says:

    Recently I caught myself being surprised at how real/realistic Belle (Emma Watson) looked in beauty and the beast. The same happens when I watch series like the queen and handmaids tale, where we see close up images of non filled or paralysed forheads. I was wondering why I was surprised at these seemingly untouched faces but the thing is that all day long we are bombarded with images of these plastic women that you start to consider them the norm, which is very disconcerning!

    • Dolkite says:

      That’s because Emma Watson is naturally beautiful, although people keep trying to say she’s plain and that men want “real women,” though God knows what that means.

      The Kardashians have never been attractive, just a parody of attractiveness. Barbie blow-up dolls.

      Most men want the girl-next-door type, not some skanky fame whore with facial edema and a figure so curvaceous that it’s comical instead of sexy.

      • KLO says:

        All of the Kardashian girls used to be very pretty before they started messing with their looks.
        I remember the first time I saw a picture of Kim (I had no idea who she was and she had only gotten her bum done then) and I thought she was the most beautiful woman ever.

  25. Dolkite says:

    How about Kim and Kanye take a break from public life? As in why don’t we all take a long break from their silly, narcissistic lives.

  26. Ozogirl says:

    I’m surprised they have lasted this long to be honest. I never saw any chemistry between them. Besides, he holds a torch for Amber Rose.

  27. yuck says:

    I wonder who’ll get Anna Wintour in the divorce.

  28. The Original G says:

    Seems more like a PR move. Go dark before a comeback.

    Kanye’s made all his albums this way.

  29. Disco Dancer says:

    Well now that Kim has got relevance and 2 kids that she can pimp out for further publicity (who would’ve invited her to the Met Gala before she got together with Kanye?), she and her rotten family do not need Kanye anymore. As for Kanye, he may have Lost his credibility by being with her but at least he got to hide in the closet a little longer. Sad for the 2 adorable kids who probably don’t get to see their mother much and rarely see their dad.

  30. Kitten says:

    Kim was just biding her time to dump him. She’s probably pissed she had to wait to dump him because he had a mental breakdown and she would look bad for leaving him during that. So six months have passed and she thinks she can get away with no criticism now.

  31. me says:

    Just more fake stories they put out for pr and because ratings are low. Nothing is working though…even more nude pics won’t help Kim at this point. People are over it.

    • Kitten says:

      If there is any good thing to come out of the constant Trump news cycle, it will be the death of the Kardashians as a brand. None of their stories can gain any media traction like they used to because we are all busy trying to follow the presidential sh*tshow.

  32. nikzilla37 says:

    Meanwhile, 2 innocent children will become children of divorce and future pimping by Kris. Sigh.

    • swak says:

      Already pimping out North by having her model her & Kanye’s line of childrens’ clothing.

  33. msw says:

    Never in a million years would I have thought a pair of a**holes would get divorced. NEVER! Shocking!

  34. Lauren says:

    She’s looks like a less attractive anjelica huston in the witches.

  35. Bridget says:

    I think she’s testing the water. Not just seeing what kind of reaction she gets, but seeing what kind of invitations she gets without Kanye. He was her ticket into high fashion and the A List, and they’re clearly hoping that they’ve made enough connections on their own to sustain that place. But… Kim is still the epitome of trashy. And I don’t know that all those social media followers have resulted into concrete sales for the things she reps.

  36. Lucy2 says:

    Those two look really awful. Can you imagine their faces without the spackled on makeup?

    Their marriage always seemed more a business/PR arraignment. Remember he wasn’t around for her first pregnancy? I don’t think they have any sort of “normal” marriage. They will split when one is no longer useful to the other, or when PMK decides it’s time.

  37. A Fan says:

    Those faces (and asses) have passed the point of no return.

    [*I wonder if they know that.*]

  38. Deeanna says:

    Has anyone read Caitlyn Jenner’s book? She describes Kim as the most compassionate of the sisters; that Kim would sit and listen nonjudgmentally.

  39. KLO says:

    They both look very fit and thin. That is all.

  40. DesertReal says:

    It’s hilarious because my husband called this casually a little while ago.
    We we both unwinding on the deck with our respective tablets when he just dropped a, “Did you know Kanye West deleted his social media accounts? Sounds like someone is about to get dumped!” Lol

  41. LaBlah says:

    Shotguns are generally when the bride is pregnant, North was in attendance at their wedding. My parents technically had a shotgun wedding, they’re still together and happy 50 years later.

  42. Lafawnda says:

    I had a shotgun wedding when I was pregnant with my daughter. (This is the first time I’ve ever referred to my wedding as such but I guess it’s true.) We’ve been happily married for almost 14 years. I love him more and more everyday.
