How Does Kim Kardashian Put up With Kanye’s Outrageous Tweets?

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West seem like a match made in glitzy, fame-filled heaven—as long as heaven is lined with cameras. The two both love living in the spotlight. They thrive off of their ability to draw a crowd with very little effort.

Having two strong, forceful personalities in a marriage surely causes clashes now and then. However, the two seem to support one another unconditionally. As they have built a family together, their commitment and love appear to grow deeper and more mature.

Still, one has to wonder how Kim Kardashian is able to put up with West’s outrageous habit of picking social media fights. Even for someone who has grown up in the spotlight, Kardashian has to get tired of never knowing when the next battle will begin or end or which headlines about her husband she’s going to see when she wakes up. How does she put up with it?

Social media drama stresses Kim Kardashian out

Allegedly, Kardashian’s public defense of her husband isn’t matched by her private response to his antics. His tendency to pick social media fights and the drama that surrounds the fallout from this habit stresses her out. She would rather that he stop and think about what he’s saying, instead of flying off the handle whenever he feels a provocation.

One particularly testy social media moment came when West found himself embroiled in a Twitter fight involving both the rapper Drake and the singer Ariana Grande. Sources say Kardashian wanted to stay out of the battle. Kim preferred for West to do the same, but she still came to his defense as the fight went on.

While she defends him when she has to, she has gone so far as to publicly admit that his responses can be over the top. She said that his tweets are often written quickly and created without much thought. “He might not be the best communicator but he has the best heart and I know what he means,” she explained. 

Kim Kardashian will always stand by her man

Despite the frustration that she feels about the drama West stirs up, Kardashian will always stand by her man. West has spoken publicly about his mental health struggles. He recently opened up on David Letterman’s Netflix series to talk about life with bipolar disorder. Kim Kardashian has demonstrated she is a stable force in West’s life. Someone who is going to stand behind him through the highs and the lows.

It has been reported that the pair sometimes argue over money. Kanye West’s tendency to blow through a budget may be related to the manic stages of his disorder. It also seems to be a habit that fits in with his public persona of living a lavish and extravagant life. Even so, the couple seems able to weather the tough spots and makeup when they disagree.

Kanye West has always been loyal to her

Perhaps part of the reason that Kardashian is so fiercely defensive of her husband and continues to support him publicly even when the world turns against him is that he did the same for her.

She explains that he stood up for her when her own scandals were in the headlines: “He’s put himself up against the world for me when everyone told him ‘You cannot date a girl with a sex tape. You cannot date a reality show girl. It’s going to ruin your career.'” He obviously ignored this advice. Kim Kardashian went on to say, “He always was that strength for me so I’ll always love and appreciate him for always standing up for me.”

For two people who both live their lives in the public eye and have made their careers out of making people love to hate them, there can be no greater stabilizing force than someone who is going to be by your side no matter what. It looks like the pair may have found just that in one another.
