Is Kim Kardashian the real reason Kanye West didn't go to New York Fashion Week? A new report claims the reality star banned her husband from attending. Gossip Cop looked into the allegation and we can now exclusively reveal the truth.
"Kim Puts Kanye In Fashion Doghouse," reads the headline in the National Enquirer, which contends, "Kim Kardashian grounded loony tunes hubby Kanye West from attending New York Fashion Week as scolding punishment for his gonzo behavior, the latest sign of rift in the troubled pair." A so-called "source" is quoted as saying, "She's using this time to send a message to him: 'Clean up your act, or it's over!'" And so, it's claimed Kardashian "put him on house arrest," and barred him from going to New York Fashion Week, even though she herself attended.
The supermarket tabloid's supposed snitch goes on to assert, "He knows she's ready to walk and he's doing everything he can to keep her, for now." Tellingly, neither the outlet nor the alleged tipster say what exactly West is "doing." And his "gonzo behavior" is only attributed to his breakdown last November. It's unclear why Kardashian would be "finally lay[ing] down the law" now, nearly a year later. But this specious "source" insists to the publication, "Kim feels like he's a ticking time bomb!"
And Gossip Cop has no doubt that the National Enquirer would love to see West explode. After all, any media outlet that refers to someone who is struggling with mental illness as a "loony tune" isn't actually concerned about their well-being. It seems that simply because West chose (yes, chose) not to attend NYFW this fall, the tabloid saw fit to concoct a bonus story about the reason why. What the magazine fails to mention, however, is that West has rarely left Los Angeles this year. He has traveled with his family on occasion, but has not spend copious amounts of time in New York like he used to.
Simply put, his lifestyle has changed. And this notion that Kardashian prohibited West from going to New York Fashion Week as "punishment" for "gonzo behavior" nearly 12 months ago is patently false. Furthermore, West doesn't take orders from his wife, nor does she take orders from him. Their marriage is a partnership, not a dictatorship, and the couple is not currently "troubled," contrary to the outlet's assertions. Remember, this is the same publication that published outlandish, made-up claims earlier this year about Kardashian and West hiring a sex coach and Kardashian getting her behind stuck in West's designer toilet. The tabloid trades in the sensational and the fictional for the sake of scandal. That's what's going on with this latest article, which a rep for Kardashian also tells Gossip Cop is completely untrue.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
