Kim Kardashian keeps going to People Mag to talk about how amazing she is

Kim Kardashian files for divorce from Kanye West as she seeks joint custody of their four children **FILE PHOTOS**

In early January, the NY Post ran a cover story about how Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were getting a divorce (although no one had filed at the time). Days later, the January 6th insurrection happened and there was a viral tweet making a joke about how Kris Jenner had organized the insurrection to change the subject from Kim’s third divorce. It was a funny joke, but the truth of the matter is that Kim is actually desperate for us to pay attention to the sh-tty state of her marriage. She’s been using People Magazine as her diary and therapist for the past year, telling them all about what’s going on with Kanye and what she’s thinking about their separation and divorce. Now that Kim has finally filed for divorce – the news dropped last Friday – she’s once again running to People to beg gossips to pay attention to her drama. Some highlights from like three separate People exclusives:

Kim is spending time with family during this difficult time: “Although Kim and Kanye have been separated for months, it was still emotional for Kim to actually file for divorce,” the source says. “She spent the weekend taking care of herself and her kids. She is spending time with her mom, sisters and hasn’t been working. Everyone is supportive. Kim feels very lucky to be surrounded by her big family.”

Kim is disappointed: “There is no drama between Kim and Kanye. Kim is mostly just disappointed that they couldn’t figure out how to stay married. But it takes two people to create a happy marriage,” the source says. “Kim has felt Kanye is not willing to do the hard work and compromise.”

They’re in agreement about the divorce terms: According to a source, the stars are in agreement over joint legal and physical custody, neither is contesting the prenup in place, negotiations have progressed and they are nearing a settlement. A separate source tells PEOPLE that the divorce proceedings, including their co-parenting plan, unfolded swiftly. “The parenting plan and split of assets came together quickly, in the past few days,” the source says. “Kim and Kanye basically wanted the same thing.”

Sources confirm that Kim is super-amazing: According to the source, Kardashian has been “fair and generous” as well as “thoughtful” and “caring” amid her split from West, who has bipolar disorder. “She’s worried about sending him into another tailspin, because that’s not good for anyone, especially the kids,” the source says. “So she’s being as gentle and kind as she can be, while still standing up for what she feels she needs to stand up for.” A second source says that the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star and the rapper are on the same page when it comes to their children. “Both of them want nothing but the best for the kids,” the source says. “They want the kids to be happy. The kids will stay with Kim, but Kanye will be able to see them whenever he wants to. They will work out a schedule that is good for everyone.”

“Kardashian has been ‘fair and generous’ as well as ‘thoughtful’ and ‘caring’…” Jeez, Kim, you don’t have to lay it on that thick. It’s crazy because I’m actually on her damn side in this divorce and I believe that she has been very careful to do everything gently. But baby girl really needs to stop telling People Magazine that she’s the most thoughtful, generous, lovely, amazing woman ever. I mean, I know well enough that no one ever wants to give Kim credit for anything positive, so these People leaks are just her way of preemptively defending herself. But YIKES!

    “See them whenever he wants” and “work out a schedule” are two very different things.

  2. Cecilia says:

    People magazine needs to tone it down a notch with the sugary pieces they’ve been writing. It is nauseating. Anyway, im happy that kim is making her way out of that marriage. I feel like it was proper toxic.

    Ps. Im happy that people magazine is focusing on celebs again. I hope they get rid of the royal news for good.

    • Sequinedheart says:

      I’m happy for her too, it seemed unhealthy a while ago.
      Will say this though, I really liked them together – at the beginning. They seemed like a good match, both beautiful, both equally into themselves, each seemed to calm down a little once they were together. So that makes me sad it didn’t work but there are issues now and no one can deny that.

      • Cecilia says:

        I really liked kimye as well. In the very beginning i thought the match was a bit odd because of who kim was at the time and who kanye was at the time. But after they had north they seemed like such a strong couple. Since kanye deteriorated, and looks like he won’t get back to the old ye anytime soon, im happy she got out.

      • molly says:

        They were a really good match when they were together. Both completely into themselves, their own fame, and the elevation they brought to each other’s career. It was having kids that upset that balance. They could no longer bounce off to Paris for months to “work on their album” and swim in their own greatness. They actually had an obligation and need to be together more often and put a child before themselves. Kim adapted to the change marginally better than Kanye, but the set up they have now definitely isn’t sustainable.

      • shanaynay says:

        All an act, and so many people bought into it,

        I’m sorry I don’t agree about divorcing someone because of mental illness. I have family members who suffer from mental illness, and I could never just give up on them. What if your children had mental illness. Would you get rid of them? It’s a cop out

        I think she’s only divorcing him , because it’s no longer convenient or beneficial for her! She’s no longer getting anything out of it.

    • Julie says:

      It definitely was toxic but not just on his end. Kanye does have bipolar and I do think Kim exploited that. It’s rich of her to be creating a victimhood profile for herself because you know the second he attempts to tell it from his perspective, her sources will be crying about him clinging to things.

      • Mel says:

        Agree. Pretty soon we’ll start seeing stories about how Van Jones is helping her pick up the pieces and how they want to start a social justice foundation or something along those lines. She can put glass to shame , she’s so transparent.

  3. Darla says:

    I can’t stand her and don’t give her credit for anything. It’s unusual for me to feel this way about a woman (I would run out of room listing the men I feel this way about). But that’s how it is. Cannot stand her. And this is very on brand for ole Kimmie. Everything she has ever done has been a PR ploy. It’s all about what’s in it for Kimmie. She makes me sick. Some people don’t deserve any credit.

    • Carol says:

      Same.

      What a low bar — hey, you aren’t being an asshole in your divorce (yet).

    • josephine says:

      I think(hope) the pandemic made people realize that these people offer nothing by way of interest or entertainment and are all about themselves. I’ve never understood why people would watch their show or buy the garbage they shill. Everything they do seems so anti-women to me and they seem among the least generous and least decent celebs out there. They’ve made a career out of being obsessed only with themselves and the pandemic has shone a spotlight on that.

    • Elizabeth says:

      She gives herself enough credit and positive press, so who feels the need to chime in? She is constantly advertising herself and trying to control the tabloid coverage with her positive views on herself (like the rest of her family).

      I feel like a lot of people have generally positive feelings for her — it is odd to see Kim portrayed as unpopular or “no one ever gives her credit for anything.” She’s widely adored. She’s not some poor unloved person. I think Kris said once that 90%+ of their news coverage and social media comments was positive so she didn’t care about the very small percentage that was critical / negative.

      I am definitely critical but hey, what does my view matter — it’s not going to impact them.

      • shanaynay says:

        Good or bad publicity, it doesn’t matter to them as long as they’re still in the spotlight. They thrive off it.

    • minx says:

      Same. The entire family is trash and they lie like they breathe.

    • UptownGirl says:

      @ Darla, I feel the same way about the entire family. I have never seen anything remotely admirable in any of them except when Khloe stood by Lamars side after the stroke and whatnot, though I was questioning her motives as there isn’t anything that they do that doesn’t have an agenda attached to it.

      • jwoolman says:

        Uptown Girl – sadly, I think Khloe did have an ulterior motive when she steadfastly stuck by Lamar’s bedside. She was likely afraid that he would spill secrets if she left him alone. The only ones she trusted to take her place briefly were her own family, even though he had others in his life who could take shifts. Instead, she was actively trying to keep his close friends and family away from him. She seemed to relax only when she realized his memory and ability to speak were impaired at least temporarily and he wasn’t going to say anything inconvenient. I think she also did care about him, but there was something else driving her.

        When Lamar was exasperated with the K’s and Khloe manipulating him later for a plot line, he did reference secrets he would reveal if they didn’t stop. Maybe it was about drug use, don’t know. But it was something Khloe did not want to be made public.

    • Amando says:

      Same, the entire family needs to go away. I really don’t understand the obsession with them. They are fake, vapid and totally out of touch.

  4. BlueSky says:

    I guess she got enough material for her reality show so she finally decided to file those papers.

  5. Noki says:

    Is it that when you are a celebrity its like a drug to constantly be talked about? At what point is enough enough, these people are rich beyond any level,they have enough fame,they will be comfortable for the rest of their lives. I dont get still running to mags to disclose such pointless info.

    • shanaynay says:

      She thrives off this. If it disappeared today, Kim and Klan would become the mentally unstable ones. It’s time for all the media and paps to stop writing and taking photos about her. Enough already

  6. SarahCS says:

    I feel sticky and a bit claustrophobic any time I see the pictures of her in the skin tight outfits with gloves in whatever material they are. I know it’s all about the look but ugh.

    • Margot says:

      Do you think it’s super noisy when she walks around in that material??

      • UptownGirl says:

        @ Margot, she must sound like a walking whoopie cushion with every step! I mean, come on!! WTF is it with these outfits?

    • Alarmjaguar says:

      Same that first picture! But, something nice, the dress in the last picture is actually pretty cute (and very different for Kim).

  7. HeatherC says:

    I hope her divorce means she won’t go out looking like she was dipped in poo. (top picture)

  8. LillyfromLillooet says:

    People magazine often writes articles that sound dictated by the celeb–e.g. Ben’s articles about how he still cared and respected Ana so much after pix emerged of the cutout of her going on his garbage. These articles read a certain way and they are easy to spot. All of their coverage of this sounds like it was brokered and dictated.

  9. Angel says:

    I feel sorry for her, the man humiliated her in every way possible.

  10. Piratewench says:

    I do feel for her. I would have hard time tiptoeing around a man’s untreated mental health issues just to keep life peaceful and safe-feeling for our children. But that’s what she has to do. She has to treat him with kid-gloves, and it’s frustrating to know (and he has made it clear) that he will not treat his mental health.

    She and Kourtney both repeatedly got pregnant with men they knew to be unstable and often unwilling to receive treatment or change. Having addiction and/or bipolar does not in any way disqualify anyone from being a good parent and partner. But leaving those conditions untreated is a whole different matter and I don’t get why these women kept having babies with them. Now kim has to walk a tightrope to keep stability for her beautiful, innocent little kids. Exhausting.

    • Julie says:

      Stable Kanye would never have married her. We’ve been saying this for ten years. If his mother was alive, Kim would have been a passing through fling. Her main appeal was the promise of large family stability. So yeah, I’d say it was in her interests that he was such a mess. Plus let’s try to remember that he was in Europe for most of her pregnancy with North which was before they were married. She fully knew and apparently wanted an arms length marriage. I don’t think she was doing very much pussyfooting. She continued to shoot her show and got the industry validation she craved. Her only issue appears to be when he publicly speaks out of turn and harms her image.

      • Piratewench says:

        I don’t know about the idea that a grown man’s stability and life choices should be dependent on his mother’s interventions. Kanye is responsible for Kanye. But I do get the rest of what you’re saying… it was an arms length marriage. It’s still hard to have the father of your children be untreated and unstable like this. Kim seems pretty naive about mental health (like telling Rob to basically snap out of it when he was dealing with depression, for example). She going to have to learn a lot to help her children cope when their father is not doing well.

      • shanaynay says:

        I agree about his mother! If she was still alive he never would have married Kim.

  11. samipup says:

    Her clothes are ALWAYS terrible.

    • jwoolman says:

      Kim always dressed nicely in clothes that fit her and weren’t so extreme before she started with Kanye in earnest to become her third husband. Remember when he took everything out of her closet and started dressing her in those godawful colors and outfits? I think she still has internalized a lot of his manic tastes. Maybe once they are officially divorced, her pendulum will swing back a little.

  12. lucy2 says:

    I generally think they’re both pretty terrible, but I do hope they’re sincere about keeping things civil and open, for the sake of the kids.
    I have a feeling sooner or later it’s all going to blow up though.

    • Vavavoom says:

      As soon as Kim has a significant other, I am sure Kanye will freak out . Mostly because someone else is with his “wife”, and also because they’re going to help parent his kids.

  13. Neners says:

    Kim and Co are so desperate for people to care about this divorce, and, from what I’ve seen, people just….don’t.

    • Meg says:

      I remember when she was pregnant People online did a survey how many of you care about this news, over 90% said no. LOL
      The comments from others here tend to be spot on about them

  14. psl says:

    This family is so pathetic and I wish we never knew of their existence.

  15. Amelie says:

    I don’t read articles about Kim or Kanye apart from here because I just can’t bother to care all that much. All of us are more concerned with wanting to get a vaccine and avoiding COVID. We get it, you’re getting divorced. No one is surprised. The world is not interested.

  16. grabbyhands says:

    I mean, this doesn’t surprise anyone does it?

    She is behaving exactly as I would have assumed she would – using the family PR machine to push the long suffering but super amazing wife narrative so they go into the final season of the show with her front and center so they can chew the bones of her marriage for the last time. Well, I say last time but I think we all know it will then switch gears to her “adjusting to life as a single mom” story line and the marriage will be referenced a lot so they can remind everyone how brave she is.

    I’m also willing to bet the super serious lawyer and social reforms bit will take a back seat to her being “a struggling single mom while looking for love with a man that supports her dreams” story line moves front and center.

    I’d love to be less cynical about this, but I have yet to see any evidence that this type of stuff isn’t carefully plotted out in advance for maximum publicity. And like, power to them I guess since people are still buying into it.

    • UptownGirl says:

      @ grabbyhands, yes, the narrative she is pushing as a combination of Sister Theresa and Wonder Woman are putting it on super thick to contain the PR narrative is disgusting.

  17. Kfg says:

    She and klow and Kourt all picked damaged men that they could manipulate. Kanye is mentally ill yes, but he was also still grieving his mother’s death and has a history of instability. Lamar was an addict and also suffers from depression and anxiety. Scott’s shitty but he is also an addict and has mh issues. They choose men who increase their visibility and then use their mh issues for a storyline because these are boring, useless, women

  18. Pixi says:

    She looks like Snooki in that headline picture

  19. shanaynay says:

    I’m sure Kim K. was no picnic to be married to as well. Aside from Kanye’s illness, it’s still hard for me to believe this so called “marriage” was even real. It was just two famef*^^ers getting together so they could constantly be in the spotlight. Even though KK has done some charitable work, I firmly believe it was done for the wrong reasons. It was done all for her ego, and to say “Look at me, look at me!!! If/when we all stop talking, writing, and taking photos of her, she’d just create a huge event about her life, because she’s nothing without being in the spotlight. Without her sex tape she never would have been thrust into the spotlight. I’m pretty much done with the whole Klan, and wished they would all just disappear for good. They’re too pathetic thirsty for my liking.

    Welcome to the real world Kim K. There are millions of single women who are doing an excellent jobs raising all their children on their own, and guess what, they’re not bragging about what a wonderful and terrific people they are doing. Kim K. is a pathetic loser. I’m ready for her family and her 15 minutes to be up. Time for them all to fade into obscurity. It’s time!
