Are Kim Kardashian and Kanye West “heading for divorce” because she’s wearing green? That’s the silly premise of a story from a website that has falsely claimed the couple was splitting up multiple times in the past. Gossip Cop can bust this latest untrue claim.
MediaTakeOut is announcing in a headline, “Kim And Kanye Possibly Heading For DIVORCE… Kim Sends Signs… She’s READY TO LEAVE!!” The site contends it has been “hearing whispers for months that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are headed for divorce. But now it seem[s] like those whispers are turning into SCREAMS.” The blog notes Kardashian has been in Miami, and alleges, “According to some people — she’s sending signals that she’s ready to DUMP her MAGA-loving maniac husband Kanye. What are the signs, you ask? Well it’s the COLOR that she’s been choosing the last couple of days.”
On Thursday, Kardashian stepped out in a neon green wig that appeared to match a car she rented in Florida, while on Friday she ditched the wig but wore a green dress. The outlet tries to connect her style choice to Kylie Jenner’s recent 21st birthday party, where the cups were color-coded to signify a person’s relationship status. Green in that case meant, “It’s complicated.” MTO is now claiming that the coding applied to wardrobe, too, and asserts, “Well for the last two days while in Miami Kim has been wearing EXCLUSIVELY green.” Maintains the online publication, “People are saying that hiss Kim’s subtle way of telling the world [sic] — that her marriage to Kanye is now ‘complicated.'”
This really amounts to nothing more than a conspiracy theory. West actually approves of Kardashian’s look and posted on Twitter a video of her going green. That same day, West also shared a beach photo of Kardashian on Twitter with fire emojis. And on Saturday night, West was by Kardashian’s side as she wore green again for 2 Chainz’s wedding. In fact, the rapper seemed to be inspired by his wife, as his suit appeared to be a very light mint green.
Furthermore, while Kardashian is obviously on a bit of a green kick the last few days, she has not only worn that color over the last week. On Sunday, Kardashian retweeted a fan’s Twitter collage of all her looks from her time in Miami, which show she’s also stepped out in pink, yellow, black and reptile print. Kardashian also retweeted Twitter video from the same account that featured footage of her and West walking hand in hand. That certainly doesn’t send a divorce “signal.”
There was a similar situation a few days ago, when Khloe Kardashian explained that she wasn’t signaling that her relationship with Tristan Thompson is “complicated” by drinking out of a green cup at Jenner’s bash. “I’m sure I drank out of every colored cup that night,” she wrote on Instagram. Sometimes a cup is just a cup, and a fashion theme is just a fashion theme.
It must also be noted that MediaFakeOut, which has earned its nicknamed for its tendency to spread fake news, has spent the last four years wrongly announcing Kardashian and West are on the verge of divorce. In some past instances, such as last September, the site has claimed Kardashian was divorcing her husband because she was spotted without her wedding ring. But that hasn’t been an indication of a crumbling marriage, and neither is the “KUWTK” star’s wardrobe.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
