Kanye West “Leaves” Kim Kardashian Is Bait And Switch
On the homepage of RadarOnline, a headline blares, “BREAKING NEWS: KANYE LEAVES KIM!” The wording, of course, is meant to lead readers to believe West has left the relationship and the marriage is over. It is designed to make it seem like this life-changing event just happened.
But that’s not the case. Not even close. After clicking onto the actual article, it’s revealed that the story is actually about West leaving to go on tour. As has been known for months, the rapper has a slew of concert dates scheduled for the “Saint Pablo Tour,” and he’s fulfilling his obligations.
So, after first tricking readers into thinking West has officially dumped his wife, the webloid then continues to be misleading by trying to make it seem like he suddenly abandoned her. “Just when Kim Kardashian needs her husband most, Kanye West is off on tour yet again,” the site dramatically writes, claiming “his decision to hit the road has the couple closer to divorce than ever.”
“Kim is furious with Kanye for going back out on tour again and leaving her,” an obviously clueless (and possibly fictional) “insider” says. “Kim says she wants Kanye to stay at home with her. She says she only feels safe when he is there and she doesn’t want him to keep abandoning her.”
And so, the outlet alleges, “West and Kardashian have continued to battle over his return to the road, pushing them closer to divorce than they had been in a long time.” Yet RadarOnline has been running these “divorce” stories all year long. The end of this new tale asks, “Do you think this is the end for Kimye?”
Well, that’s certainly what the webloid wants readers to believe, particularly with that clickbait headline. Gossip Cop knows better. And now you do, too.
