Are Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Taking Their PDA Too Far?

Things have been a little complicated between Kim Kardashian and Kanye West lately. He has a new passion as an evangelical Christian, which has led to him criticizing Kardashian’s style (again) — this time for being too sexy. At the same time, Kardashian and West have a lot going for them as a couple. Did a recent display of West’s appreciation of his wife’s beauty go too far, or is it just evidence of the spark they still have between them?

The couple recently appeared at the 2019 FGI Night of Stars Gala at Cipriani Wall Street. As they made their way down the red carpet, West was clearly enjoying the way his wife’s snug skirt showed off her curves.

Despite all the people and cameras, West just had to reach down and give her legendary butt a squeeze. He patted it several times as they walked in, and then he was seen with his hand on it again as they left the event. 

Kardashian didn’t seem to mind and they are married, after all. But is this just an over-the-top display of their attraction for one another, or are they trying a little too hard to look like a couple in love?

Of course, West and Kardashian West have never had a boring life together. With four kids, two enormous careers, a reality show, and two dramatic personalities, things are bound to be exciting.

Lately, there have been a few hints that they may be going through some rough waters in their relationship. West has found a new faith, and it’s just about all he wants to talk about.

Recently he brought this newfound religion up during an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians when he criticized the dress Kardashian was going to wear to the Met Gala the next day. Discounting the fact that she and the designer had been working on the look for months and the fact that he’s encouraged her to look as sensual as possible in the past, West said she looked too sexy. Kardashian was not happy with his comments, and she let him know.

That’s not the only time lately that he’s seemed less than impressed with his wife. During a recent appearance on The Late Late Show West told the host James Corden that each year of marriage seemed like a hundred years, making his marriage to Kardashian feel like 500 years. It’s not very romantic to announce that it feels like you’ve been with your wife for half a millennium.

In the same interview, he went on to poke fun at his wife’s very brief marriage to Kris Humphries. As if that weren’t enough, he revealed that he’d like to have seven children, although Kardashian has said she’s content with the four they already have. It seems that the famous couple isn’t seeing eye to eye at the moment. 

West has a new album out, Jesus Is King. He’s excited to get on tour, and he’s reportedly putting together a schedule. But Kardashian isn’t sure it’s such a great idea.

West has had mental health issues in the past while dealing with the exhaustion of a concert tour. He has a bipolar disorder, but he doesn’t take medication for his condition. Kardashian is worried about how he’ll hold up under the pressure. It seems unlikely that West will take her concerns too seriously. 

It’s impossible to know if West’s wandering hands are evidence that their relationship is strong. They may be a happy couple, riding the ups and downs of life together without losing hold of what’s important. Or they may be trying to maintain an image.
