Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are divorcing because he’s going too far with his religious obsessions? That’s the absurd rumor in one tabloid. Gossip Cop found it false.

The National Enquirer says there’s “Holy Divorce Drama” for the superstar couple. The outlet claims the “rapper turned Jesus freak” is causing his wife some serious strife. “Kanye’s saying they need to get remarried in his church to make things truly official and Kim is saying, ‘Hell, no!'” the outlet’s anonymous source says. “They renewed their vows about a month ago, so Kim sees zero need to do it again. In her mind, they just need to get on with their lives and there’s no need for more grand gestures right now.”

The magazine then says that West’s rapid transformation to a “religious zealot” has “left less spiritual Kim overwhelmed and unimpressed” with his antics. “Kim’s told him, ‘Just because you’re on a journey doesn’t mean I’m in the same spot with you,'” another “source” says.

The outlet then points to West and Kardashian’s disagreement on an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. The rapper disagreed with Kardashian’s choice of dress, and the two had an argument over her appearance. The outlet again quotes Kardashian’s line about West’s journey and transformation, only without the added input from the “insider.” The “source” also says the couple would’ve split ages ago if it weren’t for their children. “Kim’s sick of Kanye’s crazy whims and demands. This can’t last much longer.”

Kardashian’s official spokesperson, however, dismisses the bogus story. For one, it incorrectly refers to Kardashian as “less spiritual” and uncomfortable with West’s religious turn, but the reality star has always had her own strongly held beliefs. Just because she isn’t putting out an album about her religion doesn’t mean she isn’t religious. In October, she was baptized along with all of her children in a historic Armenian church.

“So blessed to have been baptized along with my babies at Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin, Armenia’s main cathedral which is sometimes referred to as the Vatican of the Armenian Apostolic Church,” Kardashian wrote on Instagram. “This church was built in 303 AD.”

People magazine, a much more reliable source of celebrity insight, reported that Kardashian actually enjoys West’s new religious music far more than anything else he’s done. The outlet further noted that she specifically enjoys its more spiritual nature. The reality star is absolutely fine with her husband’s religious turn.

Plus, the new season of KUWTK was filmed in May, which is when West and Kardashian had a small spat over her dress. The outlet is referencing an incident from seven months ago and trying to make it seem current. Seven months would be an awfully long time for things to be as bad as the tabloid alleges. The magazine also doesn’t address its September claim that Kardashian and West were going through a $600 million divorce. Gossip Cop also busted the tabloid in 2017 for again claiming the Kardashian-West marriage was hanging by a thread. The tabloid is just hoping that the two will split, but it hasn’t been right about them in years.
