When Kanye West and Kim Kardashian announced that they were getting divorced, fans of the couple were shocked to hear the news. However, after some time had passed, Kanye West decided to open up about what really happened between he and Kim Kardashian, and the REAL reason why they are no longer together has nothing to do with the paparazzi or even Amber Rose! This is why he and Kim Kardashian got divorced…
Getting lost in their fame
As the couple became famous, the public scrutiny intensified. It’s unclear what the tipping point was, but it’s speculated that either her Paris robbery or being spoofed on Saturday Night Live pushed them to hit a breaking point. Though they tried to keep their relationship as normal as possible for their kids, people thought we were going to date forever because I couldn’t imagine my life without him, Kim told Ellen Degeneres in 2018.
Their relationship was on the rocks from day one
It’s important to note that the relationship between Kanye really never got off the ground. What people saw as a love story was actually only one-sided, with Kanye not interested in the idea of starting a family with his girlfriend of two years. It also doesn’t help that there were many other celebrity relationships breaking up at the same time, like Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris (who just happened to be working on her music) or Jay Z and Beyonce (who weren’t working together anymore). The pressures of being in the public eye while maintaining their private lives caused them to separate.
Keeping up with the Kardashians
Ever since the news of Kanye West’s divorce from Kim Kardashian surfaced, there has been speculation about what might have happened to cause their separation. One popular theory is that he’s tired of her partying lifestyle, which could explain why he was hesitant to appear on season 12 of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
They had very different priorities, lifestyles and choices
In a new interview with radio DJ Angie Martinez, the 41-year-old rapper was asked why he decided to file for divorce from his wife of 10 years. We grew out of love, Kanye West said bluntly. They had been talking about it for a long time. She would show up late to things; I’m like ‘We need to talk about this.’
I just think that we could do better, the father of two said in an hour-long phone conversation with Martinez on her New York City Hot 97 FM show The Angie Martinez Show Thursday night. There’s so many things that I can’t really speak on, because when you’re in different places in your life – you know how hard it is?
From extravagant dates to turning out at red carpet events, it was a life no one else could live
It’s easy to look at the headlines, shake your head, and say who cares? But sometimes it can be hard for outsiders to comprehend what is happening in a relationship when you don’t know the intimate details. We all make mistakes in relationships, but how much each person has put into the relationship is something that will affect their outlook on the relationship.
They first married for love but later for finances
Kanye West first met Kim Kardashian in 2003, when he had a creative directors position at the RocaRaton office in New York. They weren’t attracted to each other at first, but they were both focused on their careers and making it big in their respective fields. But by 2012, they had been married for three years and the relationship was starting to feel more like a business deal than an emotional union.
We have seen some serious shade throwin’ in the year after they divorced.
It’s not every day that we get to see a celebrity couple go through such an ugly divorce in public. Sometimes it seems like the only thing these two will agree on is how much they hate each other.
However, if you know anything about marriage, then you know that when a couple does as much yelling as these two have done publicly, it can be for reasons completely unrelated to their love life. In fact, their conflicts may all come down to some straight up cash flow.
