Kim Kardashian & Kanye are not calling off their divorce, they’re just thirsty

kim kanye wyoming

Kim Kardashian is the queen of self-promotion, and perhaps just the queen of promotion. Is it possible that all of the dumb conversation about “are Kim and Kanye getting back together” was just Kim trying to help Kanye promote his album? Or was it Kim promoting herself? Some commenters still want to claim that Kim would be nothing without Kanye, that no one would pay attention to her without her association to her estranged husband. This is false. Kim would still be a thing without Kanye, and she’ll still be a thing long after her third divorce is finalized. But it’s definitely interesting to see Kim and presumably Kris Jenner run around to TMZ, Page Six and People Magazine to talk about whether Kim and Kanye could reconcile. From People’s exclusive:

Despite Kim Kardashian West’s recent public support of Kanye West, the pair is still moving forward with their divorce.

“They have come a long way since Kim filed for divorce,” a source tells PEOPLE of Kardashian West and West’s relationship. “It’s taken them months to get to this point. Kim is happy that they get along and that things are amicable.”

Their focus has shifted away from their personal issues to their children, the source tells PEOPLE. “The kids will always be her number one priority. She wants to have a friendly relationship with Kanye, because it benefits the kids,” says the insider. They add, “Filing for divorce was always the most difficult decision for Kim. She only filed because they had issues that they couldn’t solve. She will always love Kanye though.”

Fans may have interpreted Thursday’s event at Chicago’s Soldier Field stadium as a sign of reconciliation, but the source reassures to PEOPLE, “Right now, she is not calling [the divorce] off though.”

So Kim wants people to speculate that they’re still happening but she also wants credit for having a high-minded, supportive conscious-uncoupling while emphasizing that the divorce is still happening. But sources told Page Six that Kanye seems to think that they’re getting back together:

Kanye West is telling friends in the music business that he and Kim Kardashian are back together — but nobody believes it to be true, according to multiple sources. The pair fueled reconciliation rumors after Kardashian was spotted holding West’s hand leaving his “Donda” listening party in Chicago on Thursday, after she joined him during the performance at Soldier Field for a faux wedding ceremony. Music insiders say that West is putting on a big show of “performance art” in a bid to propel his album sales past those of his nemesis Drake. As West and Drake prepare to drop albums at the same time, the two rappers have been trading barbs including West posting and deleting a screenshot of Drake’s address in Toronto.

One music insider said, “Kanye has been telling other rappers that he and Kim are back together, but everybody knows that isn’t true. The real story is that Kanye wants to beat Drake in record sales, and he is putting on a big show of performance art to grab all the media attention.”

The source added of his relationship with Kim, “They weren’t talking for months after she filed for divorce, but they began talking again earlier this summer for the sake of their kids. Kim is a nice person – while she and Kanye are not back together – she’s happy to support him in his work and his art, she wants a good relationship with him for the sake of their children.”

Kardashian, 40, wore a Balenciaga Haute Couture wedding dress for the show and as she and West, 44, exited Soldier Field. However a source exclusively told Page Six on Friday that the exes did not “recreate” their 2014 nuptials — but instead West had persuaded Kardashian to partake in his “performance art.” A second source exclusively told Page Six, “Kanye asked Kim to be part of his performance art finale, and she was happy to help him achieve his creative vision and will always support him as an artist. Marriages are complicated, especially ones including four young children. Kim and Kanye have a genuine love for one another and deep history together. They did not speak for several months after she filed for divorce, but started speaking again earlier this summer.

A third source added, “They are not getting back together. The one thing they still have in common is love of the press. And of course she will still help him make money because the money goes to their children. It’s mutually beneficial for both of them.”

So Kanye is telling everyone that they’re back together but no one believes him and they think it’s all some scheme to sell records. Which it probably is from Kim’s perspective, although it feels like Kanye might actually believe it. I don’t know. I don’t doubt that Kim is totally done. I’ve always doubted whether Kanye is done with Kim.

    Get back together or don’t but please shut the F**k UP. Thirsty azz fools.

  2. grabbyhands says:

    Firstly – literally everything she does is in the interest of self promotion and this is no different.

    The independent woman divorcee that every man was chasing after storyline wasn’t panning out, so she went back to one that was guaranteed to get her press – Kanye and his circus life.

    She was getting blowback for the painfully obvious PR grab and ignoring the fact that once again her husband was willingly laying down with fleas, so she and PMK plant stories about “will they or won’t they get back together?? (Hint – They will if they determine there’s enough press/money in it) and emphasize that it’s all about the kids, which is laughable.

    In other words, it’s more dreck out of the same battered Kardashian playbook.

    • Lemons says:

      Yeah, I think her current batch of suitors won’t do her any favors, so stunt queening with Kanye is her best option.

      They are both toxic personalities, everyone knows it, and anyone worth anything in the industries Kim wants to date in doesn’t want any smoke from Kanye which would inevitably happen because he’s insecure and unstable.

      • myjobistoprincess says:

        +1 totally agree on Kim stunt queening and Kanye using Kim as an xtra about the beef with Drake + using her base for his album release. +Rappers beefing on he internet is like ball and chain to both my feet. exhausting, very cringe when you’re like going on 40 or 50 years old and 100% of the time, I have no interest in resolving any of their crypting statement.

  3. goofpuff says:

    Yeah, she only was planting stories of their divorce to try to distance herself from MAGA, but she’s not going to divorce him unless its becomes not beneficial to her brand. It’s not like they live together or share a life together. They’re already living separate lives and are together in name only.

  4. Princess Peach says:

    I personally think that Kanye was the one that was done with the relationship first and not Kim. She seemed content to just stay in limbo with them being technically married but living separately and he wanted to clear the way to attempt to date irina who promptly dropped him.

    They both love attention and their fame clearly peaked when they first got together. That was the first time Kim was in Vogue and got invited to the Met Gala. And it was before Kanye permanently lost a large segment of his fan base due to his Trump loving antics. Now Kim is too old to be an IT girl and sharing 4 kids with someone as unstable as Kanye will make it pretty hard to grab another A list man. Although I think she will continue to make a lot of money. Kanye is dead to a lot of people for being a Maga idiot.

  5. Gina says:

    Sadly, I do agree with Kaiser in that she won’t completely fade to obscurity (unfortunately).

    Without Kanye she won’t get the attention she did while married to him which is why she’s keeping West as her last name and will do whatever he wants her to do.
    She’ll always be there with him to get more attention for herself.

  6. Swack says:

    Watching my grandchildren going through the divorce of their parents is heart rendering. My soon to be ex son in law is a narcissist. It is hard on them. Kim and Kanye need to make a decision – divorce or not divorce – and stick to that decision. This back and forth, on again, off again, has to be hard on the children. Or in the least keep it private and not put it out there for all to see – even their children will see it.

    Kanye does have an album coming out

  8. ME says:

    Kanye saved the entire KarJenner Klan. I don’t care what anyone says. They were on their way out before Kim latched on to Kanye as a last resort. It worked well for them. Invites to the MET, Vogue covers, front row at Paris Fashion Week. All the things this family wanted but couldn’t get until Kanye came along. Now the only thing that gets Kim any publicity is Kanye and her cute kids. That is all. Nude selfies don’t work for her anymore…nor do her staged pap walks. Even putting out rumors that royalty want to date her didn’t do a thing. Kanye is all she has to stay relevant now (until her kids are old enough to have their own reality show).

  9. Dme says:

    Who knows what they’ll do. It’ll be whatever generates the most publicity for them. She couldn’t be too opposed to any of this, posting ridiculous pictures in a wedding gown on her Instagram. They’re messing their kid’s heads up, I’ll give them that.

  10. Madpoe says:

    Whatever it takes to keep Narcissists in the eyes are there fans during a global pandemic. shameful.

  11. why? says:

    Sources? Which translates into Kris and Kim. The Kardashians won’t fade into obscurity for one reason and one reason only, Kris does a great job at controlling the press(she must be paying them) and what they post about her daughters(depicting them as victims or giving them credit that they don’t deserve: Forbes claiming that Kim and Kylie were billionaires, Kim did a good job on the baby bar even though she failed it twice, Kim is being a loving and caring wife by not going out in public with her new man, it’s Kayne who wants to get back with Kim); their partners(they ramp up the negative stories about the men whenever there is a breakup ), and any woman who they perceive as a threat(leaking negative stories about Irina, the 19 yo that Scott grooms, and Jordan). Kim has been traveling and partying since December, so it will be interesting when Kris leaks that Kim finally “passed” the baby bar.

    Kris and her daughters definitely used Kayne to open up doors for them in the fashion world and politics. Trump and Jared would never have allowed Kim to set up staged photo-ops(under the guise that it was prison reform) in the WH had it not been for Kanye’s devotion to Trump.

    Kris and Kim are leaking stories about calling off the divorce for several reasons: the men just weren’t pursuing Kim like Kris and Kim wanted everyone to believe; Kylie is pregnant and Kris wants her daughters pregnant all at the same time; Kanye is in a manic episode and they will take advantage of his mental state until the backlash becomes too much for them to handle; and they are riding the wave of attention that Kayne is getting from the album and 3 listening parties.
