Kim Kardashian & Kanye have been ‘at each other’s throats’ during lockdown

Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West arrive at the 2019 Met Gala in New York

Which couples do you really & truly believe are not going to make it to the end of the year? Which couples do you believe are struggling like crazy during the lockdown? My guesses are: Katy Perry & Orlando Bloom, Kim Kardashian & Kanye West and Brooks Laich & Julianne Hough (that one’s a no-brainer). I think Afflarmas will come out of lockdown “stronger.” I think couples who annoy the sh-t out of me (Gwyneth & Brad, Chrissy Teigen & John) are probably just fine, although if it was me, I would be going batty. As for Kimye, there have been rumors for a few weeks that they’re getting on each other’s nerves in a big way. They’re not used to spending this kind of time together, and they’re not used to spending this much time with their kids either. So… yeah:

Kim Kardashian and husband Kanye West have been “staying at opposite ends of the house” in an effort to keep things “civil” amid the coronavirus pandemic, sources say. The pair, who are parents to four young children, have been “at each other’s throats” as they self-isolate together during lockdown.

Sources close to the couple told The Sun: “Kim and Kanye are arguing and at each other’s throats during this pandemic. Kim is getting stir crazy, as she’s used to being on the go. It’s also a lot of time alone with the kids for her. She is frustrated with Kanye and thinks he’s not pulling his weight in family responsibilities. They’ve been staying at opposite ends of the house to keep things civil.”

The 39-year-old has been finding it frustrating that Kanye doesn’t ask her how he can help with their four children, North, six, Saint, four, Chicago, two, and Psalm, 11 months. Reps for Kim and Kanye have not responded for comment.

[From The Sun]

I’m assuming the “house” they speak of is the minimalist, colorless prison in California which Kanye designed with the help of a few European designers. I would be going batty in that colorless prison too – everything’s so bland, you can’t eat anywhere in the house, the kids must be bouncing off the walls. Which begs the question… why not take the whole family to the Wyoming dome? At least the kids would have the space to run around and get into adventures. But Kim probably hates the dome.

    The arched hallway has v v lovely lines but needs Art & color on the walls. The sills of the openings would be perfect spaces for vases, small pieces or frames. As far as these two odious people go, I feel bad for the kids & I don’t really like kids

    • LadyMTL says:

      I have nothing against minimalism and I agree 100% this place needs some art on the walls. As it is the whole thing strikes me as unfinished, and very visually boring tbh. Unless there’s a big playroom hidden away somewhere, I wouldn’t be surprised if the kids are hating it too.

      • S says:

        There is a big playroom. I think they showed it on this site before. I made fun of the pretentiousness of the space below, but expect they actually “live” in just a few, far more normal rooms, and the rest is for show. I mean, that tracks with their lives. Also, anyone who thinks they don’t still have multiple live-in nannies, housekeepers and personal assistants is kidding themselves.

      • minx says:

        I love white walls and clean lines, it’s how I’ve painted our house. I also like white furniture, we have white leather couches in one room and most of our tables and shelves are white. But we have colorful art on the walls, bright throw pillows and vases, etc. Our white bookcases have lots of photos and mementos as well as books. If we didn’t have that it would feel like an institution.

  2. ME says:

    I don’t believe this story at all. For one, the nannies are probably the ones taking care of the kids. Kim was seen at the beach a day or so ago, there are even pics of it. They are currently at a Malibu beach house rental I believe. A lot of these celebs aren’t quarantining like the rest of us…not even close.

    • minx says:

      They lie as often as they breathe.
      Oh, and the baby in the group picture—I forget what silly name they gave him—is looking at Kim like “Who are you?”

    • Petrafuel says:

      The nannies are probably sick of him too.
      Why does he get too look like that, wearing a members only outfit, and she has to sausage herself up in that dress until she chokes blood unfair.

      • ME says:

        I don’t think anyone is forcing her to wear those clothes. She always wore tight dresses, even years before meeting Kanye.

  3. smee says:

    It would take me less than five minutes to put a stain on something in that house.

    • Suz says:

      I was just thinking there’s no way in hell the house stayed like that for long with four small children living in it.

    • IMUCU says:

      @Smee Haha, me too! No matter how hard I try, I end up with a stain (food, nonfood, doesn’t matter) on any white blouse I wear. I’ve pretty much given up on white clothes and can’t imagine having white furniture! Applause to anyone else who can manage it!

  4. Rapunzel says:

    Kim isn’t quarantined with a couple nannies to help with the kids? I find that a little hard to believe.

    I’m guessing the big problem is Kim has finally realized what a nut she’s married to.

  5. paranormalgirl says:

    My best friend lives in Wyoming and is asking, no begging, for them just to stay where they are

  6. Astrid says:

    why is Kanye wearing hiking boots inside a white house?

  7. Chelly says:

    I don’t like Kim…for many reasons. BUT being quarantined with Kanye must be hell. Even if there were NO kids in the picture, having to be with him solely, dear God. Good thing for her she has millions of distractions

    • lucy2 says:

      I thought the same thing, he’s not in a good place, hasn’t been for a while, and without their normal outlets it’s probably tense.
      She’s probably no picnic to be quarantined with either though.

  8. Noki says:

    Why does she just go with every idea Kanye has…that picture of them in white is so creepy. O hope the kids atleast have a playroom they can go crazy in.

  9. AnnaKist says:

    I do love this kind of goss!

    I’m thinking that blank area he calls a home (Bleak House) is really only for photographs. He’s bonkers, yeas, but even he would be throwing food and paint around in that whited-out joint if left there for more than an hour.

    Their house is big enough that they could avoid each other entirely for at least a week, or one of them could just rack off to another KanEuro-designed box. The place in Wyoming would have been great for the kids, but let’s face it – he can’t be arsed with the kids. Any more than five minutes and he’s in meltdown. Besides the “farm” is HIS home, not THEIR home.

    I don’t think even the lockdown will finish them. They are business partners, a brand, and they’ll protect that. Gwynnie and Brad can have an uncoupling just for my benefit, though. They give me the shits, as do Chrissy and John, but they, like Perry and Bloom have babies to think about. Still, I can’t wait to see who stays and who goes from the house/s.

    • pottymouth pup says:

      Wasn’t there a story about Kanye taking a couple of the kids join him in his Wyoming place a couple of weeks ago?

  10. booboocita says:

    Don’t know about Kimye specifically, but I’m thinking that a great many marriages and relationships aren’t going to survive this lockdown. The police have been called to my apartment complex several times in the last couple of weeks for domestic disturbances. Half this place is headed for attorneys’ offices once we all get back to work.

    • lucy2 says:

      I know, it’s definitely an issue for many, and I worry for those trapped with abusers.

      I think it’s been very hard for many people. A few friends of mine who are married have been having a difficult time, especially when their parents are taking it as seriously or picking up the slack at home. None have shared many details, but just talking to them, I can tell there’s big time strains.

  11. S says:

    Just can’t imagine how a sterile, pure white museum space with little or no furniture isn’t a comforting and relaxing place to raise four small children during a pandemic, with a mentally ill man and attention-obsessed mom. Weird.

  12. babsjohnson says:

    Kim and Kanye will make it until the end.

  13. FHMom says:

    I kind of love their house, but I could never live there with kids. Or a husband, for that matter. I’m sure Kim has nannies, but it wouldn’t surprise me that the kids are driving her nuts because they are noisy or whiny or just constantly around even if she isnt caring for them. As for Kim and Kanye fighting, maybe they are and maybe they aren’t. It’s a story that keeps their names out there, which for them, is a plus.

  14. Lightpurple says:

    She chose to bring four children into the world with a mentally ill man who does not follow a treatment plan. I worry about those four kids and what they must deal with even without a pandemic lockdown. And I worry far more about the couples who don’t have a giant house they can spread out in and don’t have nannies and most importantly, no longer have a steady iccome to pay their mortgages and feed their kids.

  15. grabbyhands says:

    If they’re actually fighting (debatable) it’s probably due to frustration from not being able to get enough attention from the media.

    I think it’s more likely that she has found a way to get press and with a story line that makes her seem relatable without making it obvious that they’re scrambling for ways to get more attention. Kanye isn’t going anywhere anytime soon – they still have a lot of blood to squeeze from that particular stone.

    I’m not going to feel sorry for living in her mausoleum mansion with probably an army of nannies and live in help. These tricks don’t do anything for themselves.

  16. Cachinak says:

    Inside that house looks like a mental institution in a creepy film.

    • Lucy says:

      It really does. And in random, the walls are covered in a plaster from a Houston beard company I follow on Insta. They recently posted it as a project they’ve been on. Which means the walls are like flat paint, with no stain or water resistance.

  17. serena says:

    I would go crazy too in that house.

  18. GR says:

    I thought the Sun was a really unreliable, crappy tabloid?

  19. nicegirl says:

    I could not live there!!

  20. February Pisces says:

    I’ve been hearing for ages that they’re on the verge of ending it. I dunno if it will happen though. I think Kim and Kanye are two alphas, and Kim played submissive in the early days of their relationship, but I think she’s outgrown him. I remember when he threw out all her clothes, there is no way in hell Kim would let any other man do that, expect Kanye west was a legit celebrity who actually had credibility and success. He opened up doors for her, got big fashions houses to work with her, got her into the met gala, and on the cover of vogue. It wouldn’t of happened with out him, but he’s outgrown his usefulness now, and he’s been embarrassing her for the longest. I think Kim is ready to fly solo again.

    • ME says:

      I don’t know. He’s worth a reported $3 billion. That’s enough to make her stay…for a while longer at least. I wonder what their pre-nup says? Maybe there is a cheating clause and she’ll get a lot more money if he cheats. Who knows…but I don’t see her leaving him just yet. Once their show is cancelled and this family isn’t get as much press anymore, things may change. I guess we’ll see.

  21. Case says:

    I don’t think Kim and Kanye will divorce anytime soon. It’s a business arrangement more than a true marriage. They don’t have any chemistry whatsoever, not in that way. She got the babies and exposure she wanted, he gets her as his muse and defender when he says something dumb. That’s it.

    I actually like Chrissy and John. They seem fun and really happy together. I know she’s a lot, but she seems pretty cool overall. They balance each other out.

  22. Ashley says:

    unpopular opinion – i love their prison LOL

  23. Sparky says:

    This strikes me as their (PMK, etc.) response to the additional press that Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler are getting. Sort of a potential new story line.

    (BTW, I’ve been hospitalized in the psych ward at UCLA — same as Kanye— and it looks NOTHING like their house!!!!!!)

  24. Carmelita says:

    I would go insane in a house that bland.

  25. clairej says:

    I love colour, but I actually think that house looks incredible. I would no doubt destroy the serenity within minutes, but looking at my messy, chaotic house that looks like bliss right now. I would love to lie on that stuffed octapus and read.

  26. TeamMeg says:

    Afflarmas is cute! I also like Benana. 🍌😉

  27. Jayna says:

    I would feel like I was living in an insane asylum in that house.

    This gossip was released by the Kardashians themselves through their momager, like every piece of info. Usually, it’s promo for an upcoming story line.

  28. Oliviajoy1995 says:

    Their home is what I imagine purgatory looks life. Sterile and kind of depressing.
