Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have been making headlines these days but one of the latest updates is that they have reportedly been living separate lives for some time now. The future of Kim & Kanye is up in the air as they continue to work through their recent material struggles that were brought to light by Kanye’s devastating bipolar episode.
As many fans know, Kim Kardashian paid Kanye West a visit earlier this week at their family ranch in Cody, Wyoming, where he’s been staying for the past month. In paparazzi photos that surfaced, Kim and Kanye appeared to be engaging in a very tense conversation while Kim was crying.
Since her visit with Kanye, many sources are still denying any upcoming plans for divorce, but outlets are being told that Kim and Kanye are currently living separate lives, and have been for quite some time now. While Kanye has decided to live full-time at the family ranch, which he also claims is best for his “creativity,” Kim is still living in their LA home with their four kids and her family.
One source revealed, “Kanye’s in Wyoming, that’s his main base. But they’re not like other couples, obviously, they have multiple houses and private planes, so it’s not like they’re not able to see each other.” The source went on to add that, “Kim is completely focused on her family and protecting her kids right now, they’re so young.”
In fact, that was the main reason why Kim revealed she hadn’t addressed what’s been going on with Kanye until recently. In her recent statement posted to her Instagram stories, she said, “I’ve never spoken publicly about how this has affected us at home because I am very protective of our children and Kanye’s right to privacy when it comes to his health. But today, I feel like I should comment on it because of the stigma and misconceptions about mental health.”
She addressed the matter in a very mature way, but fans could feel the pain she’s been feeling due to Kanye’s insulting and harmful tweets regarding their marriage and family issues. Before Kim’s visit, many sources revealed that Kanye had been ignoring Kim’s calls and was refusing to see her knowing that he hurt her and was embarrassed about what he said.
People magazine reported that during Kim’s visit, she begged him to put an end to his presidential campaign to “focus on his mental health” instead. Chances that Kanye will drop out have been looking slim as he continues to tweet, claiming that he will beat Joe Biden off of write-ins alone.
He also previously paid over $30,000 for people to petition to have his name added to the Illinois ballot just before the deadline passed. As for how Kim is doing since returning from Wyoming, a source told Page Six, “She’s doing well, she doesn’t want this to have an impact on the kids, so it’s business as normal with them. Her sisters have been helping out and the kids have been with their cousins. They don’t want the kids to feel that anything is wrong, but of course, they want their father.”
Fans are continuing to show support for Kim and Kanye while they navigate through this difficult time, like this user who wrote, “Kim and Kanye are regular people. there is no such thing as the perfect relationship, marriage, or home. We are allowed to make mistakes and grow and learn. do not hold them at a higher standard than anyone else, they are allowed to make mistakes and learn because they’re human.”
However, some aren’t as convinced that the paparazzi photos of Kim in the car weren’t staged just in time for more promotion for Kanye’s album. One user wrote, “I’m trying to understand why Kanye & Kim would have this discussion in a public car lot when he has a secure, secluded ranch.
Smells like album promo to me…” Another user tweeted, “Kylie Jenner managed to keep her whole pregnancy under wraps (although there were rumors) and only unveiled pregnancy pics & details after she gave birth.
The Kardashians can keep things reasonably private when they want to. Those paparazzi pics of Kim & Kanye were deliberate.” Regardless of what your stance is, clearly Kim and Kanye have a lot to work through, and we’re continuing to send well wishes and hope they can work things out for the sake of their family.
