Kanye West is ‘super annoyed’ that people keep saying Kim Kardashian is divorcing him

In February, Kim Kardashian finally filed for divorce from Kanye West. She had telegraphed her decision to end her marriage for months, regularly briefing People Magazine and Page Six about her mixed emotions about ending her marriage. I even theorized that Kim wanted Kanye to file first, so that he would feel like it was his decision and Kim wouldn’t be accused of triggering another episode for Kanye by filing. We also heard that Kanye was totally over Kim. He changed his numbers and would only communicate with her through staff. I honestly thought that was a healthy and mature decision for him. Now sources close to Kanye claim that he’s mad that people don’t know that he wanted to divorce Kim before she wanted to divorce him. Let’s not, Ye.

Hitmaker Kanye West wants to be No. 1 — even in his divorce. Sources tell us that the hip-hop star is “annoyed” at reports that say Kim Kardashian filed first in their split, and that she’s divorcing him. We’re told West — who just responded to the papers filed by Kardashian two months ago — is “super annoyed that the story is being constantly presented as her divorcing him,” said the source, who noted the Kardashian family’s “huge spin machine.”

“Actually it was him saying for a year that they have nothing in common except the kids and he wanted out,” insisted the insider. “She pulled all the stops to try to save the marriage.”

The source added that he let her “file first in order to give her dignity.” A source previously told Page Six the couple, who has four children, has ceased talking.

“Even before Kim filed for divorce, Kanye changed his numbers and said, ‘You can contact me through my security,’” the source told us. There were reports that the couple was in counseling prior to their official split.

West’s bizarre 2020 presidential run was reportedly “the last straw” for Kardashian, though sources told Page Six that West has “been sick of being involved with [the] Kardashians for a long while. Especially her mother [Kris Jenner], who looms large in all big decisions she makes.” Meanwhile, another source told us, “This isn’t about one thing. There are things that have accumulated over time and created distance between them.”

Seriously? Why can’t it be “they both knew the marriage was over and Kim was just more organized about it”? Because that’s what it was. The only reason why BOTH of them held on so long was because of the kids and because of their respective images. Kanye is “religious” now and he didn’t want the “sinful taint” of divorce. Kim didn’t want to be known as “thrice-divorced Kim Kardashian.” But they were unhappy and living apart for more than a year before Kim filed and… it’s fine. There doesn’t need to be this drama about it and I sincerely hope that Kanye isn’t mad about it.

    Kanye has been MIA for a while now, there is always a calm before he explodes in public again. For the first time a Kardashian Ex must be making the K Klan nervous.

  2. Mrs. Peel says:

    Petty little rhymes with rich.

  3. JennyJazzhands says:

    Well, I would assume the person who moved to another state and never came back was “done” first. But, also, does it matter?
    I guess I can see how him being annoyed with the daily coverage of Kim’s feelings and divorce updates could make someone like him feel the need to say something back.

  4. Oh_Hey says:

    But isn’t that exactly what happened? They might have both been miserable for a while but only one of them went nuclear and started tweeting about aborting their living child that will have to read those tweets when they’re grown.

    Kim ain’t my favorite for a lot of reasons (blackfishing, body image problems, selling poop tea, etc) but she filled first and had tons of reasons. Sorry Ye.

  5. Mina_Esq says:

    It’s pathetic that he is trying to frame Kim’s efforts to save the marriage in a negative light. Don’t worry, Kanye, no one will forget that you’re the bigger as**ole in all of this.

    I bet he is going to try to smear her, just like he did Amber Rose. He will have no regard to the fact that she is the mother of his children. That’s the kind of stand up guy he is.

    • Eleonor says:

      I am waiting for this to happen.
      I hope not, because there are kids involved, but if he will have another maniac episode there are HUGE possibilities of him ranting about divorce and trashing Kim, and I probably will feel sorry for her.

    • Exactly says:

      @MINA_ESQ Preach🗣🥴…

  6. Watson says:

    I’m not a super fan of Kim but I will say this: it is not easy being with someone who has mental health issues and who is unwilling or unable to stabilize. She did what she could for years and filed cause that shit is exhausting.

  7. Bryn says:

    A healthy and mature decision to change your number and only let your wife contact you through other people? That is neither healthy or mature.

  8. serena says:

    What a petty little man.

    “he let her file first in order to give her dignity..” says the one with the maga hat screaming. She had enough dignity to put up with him and stay by his side when he was having episodes, caring for the kids while making bank, please STFU KANYE.

  9. STRIPE says:

    Wow. Wowwowwow. What a jerk. I don’t like the Kardashians at all but this is low – and what’s more I don’t believe him for a second. Kim stayed with him LONG after she should have. If he was soooooo over it he could have filed months if not a year before. This is just a sorry attempt to save face.

  10. Lala11_7 says:

    Misogynistic…to his CORE! I feel for his children.

  11. Jay (the Canadian one) says:

    He wanted her to “have the dignity of filing first,” but… not really?

  12. Rice says:

    Is anyone really surprised by this messiness? It was predicted the moment they got together while she was still married to Kris Humphrey. Messy birds of a feather mess together.

  13. Mel says:

    I feel sorry for their kids… these two. Between her family and him… those poor kids.

  14. Tx_mom says:

    Red alert, having to reach your children’s other parent through “security” is a bad sign for the future. My ex wouldn’t speak to me after our divorce. It was horrible for our children, one of whom had major medical problems. Example: He wouldn’t answer my phone calls when she was on life support. When he died, he was in the middle of filing a suit against me over our children that he hadn’t laid eyes on in 6 months. Parents need to put aside their issues to cooperate about their kids’ welfare. Leaving the state and changing your phone number isn’t being a good parent.

    • iconoclast59 says:

      ITA. I’m more than a little concerned about reports that KimYe are seeking joint custody. What if Kanye descends into a manic episode and cuts off contact when he has the kids? I hope there’s a condition that, so long as he continues to refuse treatment, another mutually-agreed-upon adult has to be around when the kids are with him.

  15. Jess says:

    Yet another man shocked that a woman would actually leave them

  16. Kanye is effed up as a soup sandwich.

  17. Jezebel's Lacefront says:

    What’s that saying? Marry someone you wouldn’t mind divorcing. He’s someone to neither marry or divorce.

    Some people are simply sour.

  18. Robert says:

    I’ve never listened to Kanye. Have his last couple of albums sold very well. I know his religious ones have to cost a lot because of all the gospel singers and things he does all over. I wonder how financially stable he will be when this is over. I’m sure there was a prenup and Kim will keep all her assets. That may also be why she finally filed. He may have started being a drain on her financially also.
