‘KUWTK’ Was a ‘Big Reason’ For ‘Issues’ in Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s Relationship
Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West have been reportedly headed for divorce. Though they had a tough 2020, fans are still wondering what exactly it was that caused the deterioration of the celebrity couple. Now, reports have come out that Keeping Up With the Kardashians may have had something to do with the couple’s demise.
Kanye’s Twitter rant
2020 was especially hard for many people. But Kanye’s run for presidency put an added strain on his relationship. After he admitted at a rally that he and Kim almost aborted their oldest daughter North, he took to Twitter to call his wife out.
“Kim tried to bring a doctor to lock me up with a doctor,” he tweeted before deleting the post. “If I get locked up like Mandela… Ya’ll will know why.”
“Kim was trying to fly to Wyoming with a doctor to lock me up like on the movie ‘Get Out’ because I cried about saving my daughter’s life yesterday,” he wrote in a follow-up tweet.
He even alleged that he had been trying to divorce Kim for months.
“I been trying to get divorced since Kim met with Meek at the [Waldorf] for prison reform,” he wrote in a now-deleted tweet.
Later, Kim took to her Instagram story to defend Kanye and remind fans that he has bipolar disorder and to ask people to show him empathy and compassion.
Kim and Kanye are headed for divorce
Things reportedly haven’t been great between Kim and Kanye for some time.
“Kim and Kanye are in counseling and exploring their options,” a source recently told People. “They have been working on their marriage for a long time, but no decision has been made.”
The counseling hasn’t been working and according to sources, Kanye thinks Kim is done with the marriage.
“He knows that she’s done,” a source told the outlet of Kanye. “She has had enough, and she told him that she wants some space to figure out her future.”
“He’s OK,” the source continued. “He’s sad, but OK. He knows the inevitable will happen, and he knows that it’s coming soon.”
Was ‘KUWTK’ also a problem?
Though the Twitter rant may have been one of the first big clues to the public that the relationship was ending, Keeping Up With the Kardashians was also reportedly “a big reason for issues within their relationship.”
“Kanye has never been into doing the show, the constant paparazzi or the cameras and he and Kim had that understanding, but that was a big thing they’d fight about for years,” a source told HollywoodLife.
“He really helped her with her fashion career and the choices she was making,” the source continued. “He really feels he helped make her a fashion icon and she does give him credit where credit is due.”
Kanye has only made a few appearances on KUWTK, which was a big part of Kim’s life for over a decade.
“Kim has felt for years that she has had Kanye’s back, but he hasn’t had hers,” the source continued.
Neither Kim or Kanye has officially filed for divorce, but Kim has been posting pictures to social media sans wedding ban.
