Kim Kardashian ‘doesn’t want to change Kanye, she loves him & supports him’

Kim Kardashian steps out of her hotel in Asian inspired top in NY

Over the weekend, Kanye West’s interview with Big Boy came out and he said some horrible stuff about abortion, Plan B and a woman’s right to make her own reproductive choices. He sounded like one of those white evangelical preachers, claiming that Democrats oppress black folks with food stamps and force black women to have abortions. Donald Trump Jr. was orgasmic about it, tweeting that Kanye “is cracking the culture code… Leftists always try to silence those who are speaking truth. They’re waging a war on our family and culture. Kanye is a pioneer.” That’s who Kanye is speaking to and speaking for. And… it’s all fine with Kim Kardashian.

Kanye West may be known for speaking his mind — but that doesn’t make Kim Kardashian West love him any less! The 42-year-old rapper, who recently released his latest album Jesus Is King, certainly hasn’t been shy to vocalize his controversial opinions as of late. From expressing his disapproval about Kim’s sexy attire and their daughter North wearing makeup to asking his album’s collaborators to abstain from premarital sex, Kanye has faithfully stood by all of his sentiments, though they might not always be popular. Despite those outspoken beliefs, a source close to the couple tells PEOPLE that Kim, 39, has been fully supportive of her husband.

“Kim and Kanye are in such a great place right now,” the source says. “Kim doesn’t want to change Kanye. She loves him and supports him. Of course, there are going to be times when Kanye says something Kim didn’t know he was going to say, but in general they talk about everything and are usually on the same page,” the insider continues.

“They are incredibly supportive of each other,” adds the source. “Kanye, in particular, has been so proud of everything Kim has been doing lately. They are very in sync.”

A source previously told PEOPLE that Kim is “really his biggest fan” and “much prefers his new album over previous ones.”

[From People]

Remember when Kanye had a nervous breakdown or he went off his meds and he was hospitalized in late 2016? That was the moment when Kim was ready to pack it in. She reportedly consulted divorce attorneys and was seriously thinking about leaving him. I think she decided to stay after they worked out some kind of compromise: that he would take his mental illness more seriously AND Kim would get to do whatever she wanted. Plus, they would continue to spend a lot of time apart. I just think that… it’s not really that Kim 100% agrees with Kanye and supports him. I think Kim really just wants some peace and quiet with the kids and Kanye goes off and does these things. But yeah… as Kanye goes all-in with the arch-conservative preacher sh-t, I keep thinking that Kim will eventually have enough.

    “A source” being PMK, 😂
    I am not a Kim Stan but I do get tired of this narrative of the women always having to make excuses for the men in their lives. She’s not his caregiver and he’s not a child. I also think she will eventually tire of this too but I also think she enjoys the access and lifestyle that being married to him has afforded her.
    I also don’t think they live with each other full time either.

    • Esq.espres says:

      Yep. Agreed. I’m waiting for her to leave, but it wont be soon. She loves her kids and i’m sure wants more.

      Plus, what is she supposed to say? “I condone my husband’s personal and political opinions” while attempting to maintain a marriage? Nope.

    • Raina says:

      Yes, yes it is kim’s mom who is the source, no doubt. They have a brand and Kris does not want to see that family brand being tarnished. Nor does she want Kanye’s record sales to not produce. She is adjacent to Kanye and she believes they need to stand together in public as a united front.
      Privately, she’s probably searching for ways to shut him up.
      In some ways, I do get it; if you’re especially an ego driven, money/fame hungry sort, it’s better business to stay united and not throw anyone near you under the bus. She casts a wide grip so I’m sure she believes she can counter his MAGA(ugh) with other people in her family who lean liberal. Okay. It’s a family and money thing. Plus, he’s the daddy of her grandchildren and the husband of her best money maker. No snark, truth.
      That aside. It’s cowardly in its way. I would never want to say I support ANYone spewing this. I may support THEM and appreciate it’s a mental illness, but I would never want to go down as a person that supported his dangerous crap. And I’d make a huge point in saying so, eff the brand, ain’t worth your soul.
      You can’t take this “reality” fame with you, but you will definitely have your integrity remain behind.
      This is a culture of phoniness and a level of superficialities that this society is now a part of. We can learn from it or we can repeat it. Everything has value as a lesson, including this family’s rise to power. This isn’t saying they’re bad people, but extremely earthly ones. It’ll all balance out one way or the other. Hating them doesn’t help me. Helps no one. I just search for the lesson and the good out of it when it is what it is.
      This would be a great time for this family to unite regarding mental illness and how it affects families, not just blindly support to keep an appearance, to keep up with the kardashians…brand. God, whatever brand means anymore. It’s stifling, I imagine, and being that careful and phony and controlled would kill me personally.
      Hopefully Kanye gets the help he desperately needs without the family being worried about what that would publicly look like. I suppose when you create this many children, you don’t mind breaking a few eggs along the way. I hope I’m wrong but it looks sacrificial and ruthless from my end.

  2. Joanna says:

    I don’t think he lives with Kim. Remember when she married Kris Humphreys and didn’t want him to move his stuff into her house?

  3. Claire says:

    I get that she shouldn’t have to answer for Kanye, but, she is normalizing him and his views. I am surprised none of these statements included her reiterating her support for reproductive rights.

    • Amy Too says:

      The article literally says that they talk about everything and generally agree on everything and that she supports him 100% and doesn’t want to change him. Why is she always given so much credit? Why is everyone still assuming she holds liberal, progressive views? Even if she does, why is she A) silent about them and B) putting out statements saying that she and Kanye are very close, support each other, agree on things, and that she likes this album (which includes all the promotion around it) more than any of his old albums? I don’t think she’s a good person. I don’t think she’s nearly as progressive as Kaiser wants to believe she is. I think Kim’s political views are probably very fluid, are not consistent, are not a “big deal” to her, and can/do change depending on what her current friends/husband/other celebs are supporting. I doubt that she even votes consistently. She seems like someone who doesn’t want the “drama” or “negative energy” of being political or fighting for progressive values in her life.

  4. HK9 says:

    ….until the cult that he’s building self-destructs and people are suing and pointing fingers. He’s not on his meds and is flirting with a “God complex”. He’s in a delusion and taking people with him. I’m not gonna go into how as a musician, he doesn’t even rehearse that choir himself, and that’s just a basic thing if you’re in gospel music. And when he “sings” with the choir live , bitch is off key. He’s never studied theology and doesn’t plan to. If you’ve ever listened to one of his sunday services it’s pure gibberish. He hasn’t found God, he’s found a way to be off his meds, spout his nonsense and make money doing it. He doesn’t want to “help” anyone as this is all about him and his “ideas”. Kim better get a clue because this will not end well.

    • babsjohnson says:

      What cult is he building exactly?

      • HK9 says:

        Please see the part where he doesn’t know the bible or the theology therein. It’s based on nothing but what he feels like that day. That’s not a spiritual discipline.

      • babsjohnson says:

        Or it’s an album rollout…?

      • HK9 says:

        Oh it’s definitely linked to an album rollout for sure. However, if it were limited to that he wouldn’t be “preaching” so much ie: giving his ideas on what others should do with their bodies. He’d just be about the music really-which the actual choir director does a beautiful job with. He’s gone beyond releasing a gospel album and if you have any doubt, compare Snoop Dogs gospel album rollout and this one. The differences are clear.

      • babsjohnson says:

        Kanye’s album rollouts were never ever just about the music though. That album is no different. I don’t believe for a second there’s a Kanye cult coming.

      • HK9 says:

        You don’t need to believe it. I’ve watched Kanye for a lot of years, and there are too many red flags to ignore. This has gone beyond gospel music and Sunday service.

      • jenner says:

        Kanye-tology

    • Lady D says:

      “pure gibberish” is right. To actually listen to him is to shake your head and doubt your hearing all in the first 15 seconds.

    • Mel says:

      You forgot to add “Tax Free” to the money part. He also gets to sell that ugly Left Behind wear to those he dupes into following him.

  5. Aims says:

    I love my husband madly. If he ever siad anything that raised my eyebrows, I’d bring it up. Do we see everything eye to eye? Nope. But there are some fundamental things that we agree on. Because it shows our character. For example, we both wholeheartedly agree with our disgust over Trump. Why is that a big deal? Because there are some basics in life you have to stand for. Compassion, justice, empathy. If my husband was cool with the disgusting tactics of Trump that would show me that he would lack the things I’ve mentioned. That would be a deal breaker for me and I would say something.

  6. Julies says:

    As soon as he impacts her ability to make money she will reconsider. Right now he is increasing his (white supremacist) fan base, and her image hasn’t taken a real hit. Time will tell.

  7. Lightpurple says:

    I feel for those poor kids.

  8. BC says:

    Kanye remains cancelled, to me anyway.

    Kim and Beyonce like to hate each other but they might as well be the same person, what with standing by husbands they are better off leaving…

    Remember when Trump took office and Kanye went begging for his attention and they wouldnt even let him perform? But now he and Trump are buddies? Reminds me of when he was desperate to get into the fashion world and had to be an intern at Vogue, fetching coffee with all his pride. Maybe the Kardashians give him ultimatums. Like get us into Vogue, get us into politics, buy us some recognition and power and we will let you stay and do whatever you want.

  9. PizzaLove says:

    Idk, maybe he is finally dealing with his mental issues and found Jesus and is happier. And maybe she actually loves and supports him. I hope they do love each other, especially for the kids’s sake.

    I guess I just don’t get the cancel culture. I LOVED when Obama said yesterday that we have to look at ourselves more and stop trying to be “woke” and cancel everyone for having thoughts and opinions that aren’t out own. And forgive people for sometimes messing up. What a great statement and exactly how I feel.

    Thanks Pres Obama for once again being kind and thoughtful.

    • sara says:

      I don’t agree with his politics at all. He’s spouting some gross and dangerous nonsense, in my opinion. But, I think you might be on to something with the happier thing. Often, when people make big changes in their lives, their mood lifts. Like getting a new job, or moving into a new house. He sounds like he is more focused on his family lately. That’s probably very nice for Kim and the kids. I doubt this will last very long, given his mental health issues, though.

    • styla says:

      One of the biggest issues of our generation is just how easily people categorize others. If you think this then this means you are that. It’s ridiculous. Obama has such a succinct and calm way of expressing the truth of matters, I have so much respect for him.

    • Algernon says:

      “We can disagree and still love each other unless your disagreement is rooted in my oppression and denial of my humanity and right to exist.” – James Baldwin

      Kanye is attacking women’s bodily autonomy and reproductive rights, he is agitating for the ongoing oppression of women. Yeah, Kanye is cancelled as long as he thinks I am nothing but an empty vessel waiting to be filled.

      Obama is very eloquent, but what I wish any public figure talking about woke/cancel culture would discuss is that it is rooted in marginalized communities demanding equal rights. When someone is “cancelled” it’s probably because they’re trying to oppress someone else.

      • Original Jenns says:

        Thank you Algernon. There is a difference of opinion, and then there is being friends with people who don’t care about kids in cages/women’s rights issues. Pizza Lover, are you saying I should forgive people who treat people of color and women inhumanely the same way I forgive people who put cheese on my burgers when I ask for none?

      • otaku fairy.... says:

        Amen. Thank you. 🙏

    • Nic919 says:

      Obama also said that Kanye is a jackass so I’m going to support Obama on that statement too.

      • Original Jenns says:

        LOL! and mic drop.

      • HK9 says:

        Why not-Obama was not wrong.

      • Anna says:

        haha! Exactly! And tbh, I remember that after that comment was when KW went off the rails as if he couldn’t stand the first Black President–also from his home town and near the same neighborhood in Chicago–calling him a jackass so he had to go fully in the opposite direction and start courting the actual anti-Christ! lolzzzzz!!! Seriously am so over this Jackass capital J with his revisionist, old world, *dangerous* pseudo-religious ideas about women and their place and his asskissing of MAGA. Like seriously. Folks who want to stay on the Kanye train are welcome to ride it to their own doom. The signs have been there since.

    • ME says:

      In order to “forgive” someone they would have to apologize and at least admit they were wrong, no?

    • Sonya says:

      He absolutely hasn’t dealt with any of his issues. In one of his recent interviews, he said that social media was causing harm to most families, and when the interviewer said “well your family spends all their time on social media” he literally started babbling incomprehensibly. Like he was barely even saying words and it was disturbing. It only is he sick, but he’s also an asshole, and Kim is fine with all of it as long as she keeps getting attention.

      • ME says:

        Kanye is more of the “do as I say not as I do” type of guy. His poor daughters. I can bet he’s going to be the type of father to give his sons total freedom while trying to control his daughters any way he can.

    • Mel says:

      I don’t believe that he has found Jesus or is dealing with his mental health issues, I just believe this is another way for him to avoid dealing with them. If he was just off by himself I wouldn’t care one bit BUT they have children and I’m sure he’s impressing his views on some who are easily lead. Someone will get hurt, whether it’s not or later, someone WILL get hurt.

  10. britt mezher says:

    Vomit.

  11. SM says:

    First. The orange idiot ruined gossip along with politics, democracy and human decency. I refuse to have sex ruined by him too, so that reference to orgasm next to Trumps name was very very hard for me.
    Second. Meh. Not sure how a marriage can work wit such radical difference. Don’t get me wrong, I think difference is great, and that loving someone very much different from your self is great. I mean me and my husband disagree about parenting, about politics or even have heated discussions about gender roles at times. But if he ever pulled a Kanye and refused to try to see things as they are by rallying one self with Trump, I would probably fell out of love with that person. And not because of difference in politics. You don’t have to have the same politics to be in a relationship. But supporting Trump is not the same as supporting conservative politics, it is a support for deception, lies as a norm, assault of women and so so much more that refers more to pathology in core moral principles rather that liberal vs conservative politics. Also that shit about abortion indicates that a man lacks basic respect for a woman, how are you ok with whatever crap he will put into your daughter’s head?

  12. minx says:

    Sure Jan.

  13. Lisa says:

    I’m sorry Kaiser but I think you think far too highly of her.

    • Chaine says:

      Me too… Kim is propping him up and going along with everything and profiting off the Sunday Service merch same as him, and the hilarious way this blog always acts like she is just about to leave him reminds me of the contingent that claim Melania is some kind of secret Resistance or something when she is part and parcel with the whole.

    • Dani says:

      I agree. She 100% behind closed doors supports Kanye, agrees with his views and is okay with everything he is saying/doing. The Kardashian/Jenner’s are not nice people. The 3 Kardashian’s grew up with a pretty religious father, they went to church etc and it would NOT surprise me in the least if Kim agreed on his view with abortions etc but she loves her public life and will keep those thoughts to herself. They are all swimming at the bottom of the same nasty pond.

    • jenner says:

      lol this ^

  14. Machine Elf says:

    Quick fix to the headline: “Kim doesn’t want to have tough conversations with Kanye.”

    • ME says:

      Honestly can you imagine trying to argue with him and how exhausting it would be? You can’t win with someone who always thinks they are right. I honestly do think Kim agrees with a lot of what Kanye says. Also, Kim’s too busy posting filtered to death selfies and googling herself, you know the important stuff.

  15. Sean says:

    “While Kanye and Kim continue to have the utmost love and respect for one another, they will be embarking on separate journeys…”

    In 3…2…1

  16. babsjohnson says:

    Kim is not going anywhere any time soon because Kanye is still very relevant and gives her more access than she could ever dream of. Plus I believe she genuinely loves him. I believe she is grateful for how he stood for her when every outlet, celeb and designer plus all the internet was humiliating her on a daily basis and she was in fear her career was over. I think she is doing more or less the same for him now.
    What I don’t believe is that she listens to his music. It always amused me how randomly she refers to it.

  17. grabbyhands says:

    Please.

    It has nothing to do with devotion and everything to do with the fact that until his antics start to negatively affect her profit margin, she’s not going anywhere. As far as this family of grifters is concerned, he’s still serving a purpose.

    And like her husband and his orange savior have realized, if the progressives they once pretended to be aren’t going to praise her the way she wants, she’s all to happy to get that attention from the alt-right. That’s why she had no problems with praising 45 – he is giving her the thing she most wants. No strings attached attention. It won’t surprise me in the least if she starts pretending that she thinks she should keep her political views private – it’s because she will be voting republican. If she bothers to vote at all. After all, she always has the tired family excuse of “always learning” and “trying to see the best in everyone”. There are apparently still tons of people who believe the line of BS coming out of her mouth.

  18. Naddie says:

    Because she’s not God (thanks God)

  19. Marigold says:

    Yeah, no. His thinking is horrifying. She’s not responsible for what he says or does but she is responsible for how she responds when she chooses to respond. And this is a fail.

    As someone else said, she will tolerate this unless it hurts her bottom line. Their relationship is dysfunctional at best, practically non-existent in reality. I truly don’t think they have a real marriage at this point.

  20. Renee says:

    And yet she continues to bring children into this mess with him. She is to blame for continuing to do that. She’s not to blame for Kanye but she is for continuing to have children with Kanye.

  21. ME says:

    She’s a hypocrite. You can’t preach one thing but then support your husband who preaches the opposite. It doesn’t work that way.

  22. jenner says:

    Her face, she is unrecognizable.

    As usual, any post about the K’s is them just trying to control the narrative to make them look good.

  23. Vauvert says:

    I think that Kim gets a lot of passes. We generally assume that she is this liberal, open minded woman and maybe I am missing something because I don’t watch or follow any celebs except this blog – but, what exactly has she done to support local candidates, or grassroots efforts or any dem initiatives? AFAIK her one effort has been to engage with the current administration – which yes, had a positive result, but it also worked wonders for 45, for Kim and her gormless husband. Got them cred and started to establish the political foundation of what will be, I believe, a political career for both Kim and ‘Ye. You may laugh but I think he is dead serious about running for office and you may also laugh but I believe she fully supports that and will help him along with the Koven, all the way. By herself she has fame and $, with him, and particularly with him in the running, she can see something for herself that before 45 got elected would not have seem possible.
    Let’s be honest – from her perspective, why would she leave? She has so much riding on this marriage that she never will, and as far as political convictions go, she has none – but power, wealth and influence – she can recognize those well enough. Is she more likely to accomplish these goals with Ye or without? That’s your answer and I’m afraid that the floodgates have been opened for every D celebrity trick to aim for office – in which case, Kim and Ye are way ahead of the game. You’ll see…

    • ME says:

      He can run for President but if he runs as Republican wouldn’t his wife have to be Republican as well? He won’t win. He has no education, no political experience, a criminal record (for assault) and ZERO voting history. Even other Republicans won’t vote for him.

      • Tourmaline says:

        I don’t think he is going to run for President, but I wouldn’t put anything past the Republican electorate or politicians in terms of who they will support. Not any more.

        Tangentially on Twitter a lot of religious right type posters are very excited and praising about Kanye and his recent comments. It is a lot like DJT, his actions and history in no way embody their supposed values, but if he spouts their rhetoric, they will flock to him enthusiastically.

      • ME says:

        @ Tourmaline

        Old White male Republicans hated Obama and he was educated and very experienced to do the job. No way will those same dudes vote for Kanye. It wouldn’t make any sense. Kanye is everything they hate. They might use Kanye to try and get people to vote Republican because they seem to think Kanye can brainwash all Black people but NOPE not gonna work. Black people have minds of their own and can make their own educated and informed opinions. Kanye ain’t sh*t.

      • Allie says:

        One word: Trump.

      • ME says:

        @ Allie

        Trump is a White man. Republicans would put ANY White man over Kanye. You got to be kidding me.

  24. Jaded says:

    Kim’s raison d’etre has always been $$ signs and staying in the limelight. She and PMK will milk Kanye’s messiah complex for all it’s worth until he does or says something so horribly over the top that he becomes a pariah.

  25. Allergy says:

    That means you support back alley abortions, Kim.

  26. Murekatete says:

    I get why his wife supports him, loves him, and stands behind him. But as Americans, we have to be able to see beyond her social media genius and make up our own minds. I don’t have a clue where he is coming from, I’m an American who has lived her adult life in Africa, but I do see the danger in his advocacy for those who do harm to our system.
    I’m speaking as someone who understands firsthand what it is like to live outside democracy.

  27. No Doubt says:

    She is a big part of the problem with Kanye. She enables him. That’s not being supportive Kim, that’s turning a blind eye to his serious issues. I personally couldn’t be in a relationship with someone who supports racist, sexist Trump and also doesn’t support women’s reproductive rights. This is also why I don’t believe for one second that Kim is a democrat. She only believes in money, looks and social status. She has a lot in common with FLOTUS.

  28. The Recluse says:

    Yeah…this marriage is not going to end well.

  29. Norman Garza says:

    Maybe Kim was a liberal five years ago but I’m not going to pretend that she is a liberal or a Democrat today. I’m not holding my breath that Kim will split from Kanye because she won’t. Kim Kardashian West is just that, Kim Kardashian. In the end of the day Kim is looking out for number one meaning her public image, and her wealth. I don’t think she has a real political and social ideology and we cant pretend that she is a real social justice supporter and champion of the less privileged. Kim like Kanye, like Kris Jenner, like Donald Trump are people who I believe are narcissist: They like being the center of attention, they love the hero worship, the vanity, and they love the money that comes with all of that.

  30. Mel says:

    Kim enjoys the cachet and semi-respectability she gets as Mrs. West and will continue to be Mrs. West until their is a SIGNIFICANT negative impact on her bottom line. With all that money she doesn’t have to live with him/see him if she doesn’t want to so…….

  31. Asiyah says:

    I don’t know why anyone assumes that Kim K is a liberal. Wasn’t there an article here on CB that covered her saying she’s a fiscal conservative and leans Republican on most issues? Kim kares about money, not anything else, as with most fiscal conservatives.

    And let’s be real: she either agrees with Kanye about everything and that’s why they’re together or she enjoys being with him because no matter what she ALWAYS looks good by comparison. He looks like a crazy, mental mess while she is the one keeping things together. She looks like the smart one. Don’t underestimate a person like Kim and their love of image; they will do anything to LOOK good as opposed to BE good. And if that means being with a dysfunctional person so she can look functional, that’s what she’ll do.

  32. JB says:

    Never forget, Kim said herself that she had once been totally obsessed with fame. I still believe that she is. She is a fame whore – just like Kanye – and she craves the kind of attention she’s getting because, good or bad, it helps her push whatever product of the day. And she is well beyond rich at this point. She is wealthy AF. Thanks to all the clicks she gets from people like me that like to hate-watch her LOL and of course she somehow manages to have actual fans. Trust and believe that Kim ain’t going anywhere In that marriage – she’s not THAT woke that Kanye’s MAGA rants will make her walk away. Plus 4 kids. In fact, I think Kanye is going to be the one to leave her first. Mark my words – it’s coming any day now. Not for any other reason other than Kanye is completely unhinged and unpredictable right now. God complex and all. Ugh I can’t stand these people and YES I will be tuning into this sh*t show tomorrow. **shrug emoji** lol
