Kim Kardashian Admits She and Kanye West Are Distant
Kim Kardashian says cracks are beginning to emerge in her marriage to rapper Kanye West. In an episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians, Kardashian reveals that her marriage is fraught with tension and strain, People reports. She dropped some bombs about her marriage, Kanye moving to Chicago and who tends to be right when they fight.
Kanye moving to Chicago changed the dynamic
Kardashian was put in an awkward position when West announced he was moving to Chicago, without his family, Bravo reports. A source close to the couple told Bravo that although West made this announcement, he is likely to change his mind. Plus the source said, “Kim plans on spending more time in Chicago, but she isn’t moving there full-time,” a source said. “She thinks it’s best for the kids to continue their schedule in L.A. North is in school and everything is working great. Kim doesn’t think a permanent move to Chicago benefits the kids.”
Most recently on Keeping up with the Kardashians, Kardashian opened up saying that she needs to spend a large chunk of her time focused on her children (and not Kanye). “And now, with Chicago, I’m trying to work even [harder] to make sure North and Saint feel like they have enough time with me and they feel super loved and that no one is going to take their place,” People recounts.
They scabble over social media posts
Tensions are showing as the couple seems to fight over mundane things like what they are posting on social media. Kardashian chose to post about her fragrance line but West wasn’t having it, People reports.
“He wanted to me post six Polaroids from that shoot that I posted — those nude pictures. But I posted one from the beach,” Kim said to her sister Kourtney. “He wanted them to all match up and be all from the motel. That’s what the f—ing fight was! I’m like, ‘I like the beach one.’ He’s like, ‘No, you don’t understand, I see the vision!’”
They also argue over Band-Aid styles. West was irritated with Kardashian because she gave him a Jesus Band-Aid to wear instead of a skin-colored Band-Aid. To which Kardashian says on the show, “So I’m running around looking for different colored band-aids when I’ve got three kids to look after? … Just because I didn’t give birth to this baby doesn’t mean that my plate is not totally full.”
“When you have three kids, it’s kind of a wild household,” People recounts. “I’m kind of annoyed because I wish he would understand I’m exhausted. Like, go get your own band-aid.”
West wants the same attention as the children
Kardashian says she’s torn between West’s demands for attention and caring for three children.“I think so many husbands feel neglected when you start having kids and then all of their attention gets taken away,” she surmised.
Kardashian’s sister Khloé said on the show, “Sometimes men still want to be treated as like, the first baby. I know Kim is so overwhelmed and I think sometimes it’s easy to get distracted, or you think because they’re adults they can take care of themselves, but your husband still wants you to take care of him. I’m sure with three kids you’re tired at the end of the day and you don’t make that a priority, but she really has to.”
Kardashian drops this about who is right
In the end, Kardashian said she feels as though West is always right but added this: “He’s always right in the end, but I’m just like, it’s my Instagram — you can’t tell me what to post,” she said. “That’s like, the one thing. No one will tell me what to post. I’m allowed to have an opinion.”
