Kanye West took the kids to his dome in Wyoming for a week to ‘give Kim a break’

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West  spotted leaving Cipriani's

From where I sit, it seems like many, many parents are struggling during the lockdown. Schools were some of the first places to close, and so kids have been stuck at home since mid-March in most states. Add to that, many parents are trying to work from home AND home-school their kids for the rest of the school year. So it’s been chaos, and I really feel for those parents and the kids. Kim has been on lockdown in Calabasas with the kids since March. Kanye has… been somewhere? There have been photos of him in California, but as we all know, he’s got a giant office-dome in Wyoming now too. Well, I guess Kanye West doesn’t have to listen to “lockdown orders” and “essential business only” chatter, because he’s been flying back and forth from LA to his Wyoming Dome for a while now. And now it seems like Kanye “took the kids” to his Dome and left Kim on her own for a week?

If studying to become a lawyer and running multiple businesses wasn’t already a full plate, Kim Kardashian West has also been raising her four kids while practicing social distancing indoors. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians reality star, 39, and her husband Kanye West have been alternating family responsibilities for sons Psalm, 11 months, and Saint, 4, as well as daughters Chicago, 2, and 6½-year-old North, according to a source who tells PEOPLE, “It’s a huge chaos with all the kids at home.”

“Kanye escapes to his office for a work break. He also let Kim have a break last week when he took some of the kids to Wyoming. They have been taking turns caring for the kids,” the source says.

Kardashian West, who has been in Calabasas, California, and rapper West recently purchased two massive properties near Cody, Wyoming, but the mom of four has previously said her family will not likely relocate to the Cowboy State full time.

It, uh, sounds like the kind of arrangements done by a couple who are already separated? Which isn’t surprising – I think after Saint, Kim and Kanye basically came to a general agreement about their marriage and their lives together/separately. That was the moment when Kanye had his breakdown and Kim consulted some divorce attorneys, remember that? I think they made a deal to mostly live separate lives, and that Kim would always base herself in LA with the kids and Kanye could travel and do whatever, mostly without her. Also: while I do not question Kanye’s love for his children, I do question whether he’s really capable of providing 24-7 care for four kids on his own in Wyoming? I assume some nannies are traveling back and forth too?

    Yeah, from him.

  2. B says:

    They’re still keeping up this charade?

  3. Angel says:

    He took “some of the kids,” not all of them. So if he took the older two, they probably have learned to do things on their own so that he doesn’t have to actually look after them. And yes, my guess would be that nannies came along.

    He’s really risking their lives traveling back and forth like that – and even making the kids travel, too.

    • Tired of It says:

      How is he putting those kids in danger flying a private plane back and forth and hanging out with them in a big empty ranch? I face more danger buying milk and hamburger at the grocery store. I wish my husband could bring our kids to a private ranch for a few weeks.

    It actually seems like a rich people
    move. Nothing really scandalous. .

    • lizzieb says:

      But rich people have been asked numerous times not to travel to their vacation homes to lessen covid 19 in rural areas. Am so tired of the entitled “elite”

  5. Ariel says:

    Kanye’s breakdown started with Kim’s traumatic robbery. Which makes me hate him. Partners who, instead of being supportive of their partner in need, make the whole thing about them and how they can’t handle it/ are the absolute worst.

    And yeah/ 0% chance Kanye is “caring for” his kids. The nannies are definitely there.

    • Arpeggi says:

      Oh c’mon! You don’t decide when you have a breakdown or what triggers it. Kanye is awful but he didn’t chose to have a mental breakdown.

      And of course he’s not caring for his kids, I doubt he’d know how to do that

    • CuriousCole says:

      Ariel I know what you mean. It’s very lonely and frustrating when your partner can’t seem to put your emotional security first. I’d finally break down and explain how he’d hurt me, and he’d get so upset I ended up having to comfort him! It’s exhausting. A good partner will work on improving those tendencies but it’s a different story when there’s a mental illness involved. Arpeggi is correct, we can’t really choose when we’re hit with a major disorder.

  6. ME says:

    Oh come on. We all know very well that the Kardashians still have their chefs, maids, and nannies at their homes. They want us to believe they are quarantining alone like the rest of us, but please who actually is believing that? Kim has probably never been alone with her children and either has Kanye. I really hope those nannies are getting paid really well and an extra bonus for working during this time especially.

  7. NotHeidisGirl says:

    Please. As if either of them is ever with the kids without a nanny around. 🙄

  8. CidyKitty(CidySmiley) says:

    He took “some of” the kids. And I’m assuming its the two oldest. That’s how it usually goes when there is custody splitting, Dad takes the ones who are the most self sufficient, which doesnt actually give Mom a break at all.

  9. Queen Meghan’s Hand says:

    First: that denim outfit on Kim is fly.
    Second: how do you feel about people quarantining with their domestic house staff, like nannies/care givers and housekeepers? The Kardashian-Wests are doing it, and so are Chrissy Teigen and John Legend. The people who work these jobs rarely do not have families of their own so…how is it working?

    • Arpeggi says:

      Yeah, I have issues with bringing staff to different states as if they don’t family of their own and a life outside of work. It’s not cool at all and can easily lead to abuse by some employers

      • ME says:

        Yup. Didn’t Kim admit that her nanny wanted a day off to attend a baby shower and Kim told the nanny to bring Psalm with her ?! Like damn her nanny can’t even get a day off? God forbid Kim or Kanye take care of their own kids for a day.

        I can bet Kanye took two of the kids, two nannies, an assitant, and a chef/maid with him to Wyoming. No way is he watching those kids, cooking for them, or cleaning up after them.

  10. Jules says:

    Crying laughing over that pink onesy thingy in the bottom pic. And seriously, still dropping the studying to be a lawyer thing?

  11. Sumodo1 says:

    Yeah, it must suck to have your own family but be sequestered with the Kimye clan. Also, to leave your fam behind for Wyoming, where Kanye is the king. Unless, Kanye has Wyoming staff in place, who are still quarantined away from their families. I guess what I’m trying to say is: it must suck to be their staff right now anyway.

  12. Lea says:

    I don’t think Kim and Kanye actually ever lived together. My theory is that he has his house, she has her house where she lives with the kids, and he stays over the when he wants to spend time with them or when they are doing interviews or want to post something on social media. And it’s not necessarily a bad thing. Absence makes the heart grow fonder, right ?
    Also, I highly doubt Kanye would be able to manage two young kids without help. Kanye manage cooking, bedtimes, screen times, etc ? I don’t think so. And I don’t think Kim would allow him to travel with the kids unsupervised. I am sure he loves them deeply but he is quite unstable.

  13. NeoCleo says:

    Good lord that last outfit is OBSCENE!!! (The one on Kim–her daughter is adorable.)

  14. shanaynay says:

    Uh oh sounds like it could be time for divorce and/or separation
