Is Kim Kardashian "begging" Kanye West to stop "ignoring" her? A report claims she "can't get the attention she needs" from her husband. Gossip Cop, however, can debunk the story.
According to Heat, Kardashian's decision to post risque photos on social media in recent weeks was made because she's focused on "winning back some attention from an apparently disinterested" West. A so-called "source" is quoted as saying, "Kim is desperate for him to show her more attention, but he's been withdrawn lately." The gossip magazine's supposed snitch maintains that even though "divorce talk has slowed down," their friends "worry they may have stuck a Band-Aid on their troubles, rather than dealing with them head-on."
It's never really said what those purported "troubles" are, or how they "stuck a Band-Aid" on them. Rather, the alleged tipster vaguely asserts, "Kanye's been distracted and Kim feels like he's been ignoring her for months, well before Chi was born." The outlet points out West went to Berlin following baby Chicago's birth last month, with the "source" contending, "It's that kind of behavior that drives [Kardashian] crazy and makes her wonder if he just doesn't care anymore."
"She's tired of him disappearing like this," alleges the questionable insider, who adds to the publication, "Kim could do with some attention right now." The headline of this article even features the quote, "Stop ignoring me!" But there's no evidence Kardashian actually ever uttered such a statement. And the couple has been together a fair amount in recent weeks.
They went to Ellen DeGeneres' birthday party together earlier this month, and a few days later, Kardashian and West exchanged Valentine's Day messages on Instagram. They also jointly attended a special Valentine's dinner put together by Kris Jenner. Despite West's recent trip, he and Kardashian clearly aren't hurting for quality time together.
It also makes little sense to allege Kardashian is sharing her skin-baring social media snapshots just to get the rapper's attention. The "KUWTK" star has always liked flaunting her body. In fact, that's why she published her book of selfies, called Selfish, in 2015 and re-released it in 2016. And although West is on record as liking such photos from his wife, the reality star hasn't been posting them as some part of scheme to the performer interested in her.
Of course, this isn't the first time the tabloid has distorted the truth. Following her robbery in 2016, the magazine claimed Kardashian was going to write a self-help book. Gossip Cop busted that contention, and time has proven we were correct. It seems the outlet enjoys taking kernels of real news (Kardashian's robbery, her social media photos, West's Berlin trip) and twisting them into fake narratives. We'll continue to separate the facts from the fiction as necessary.
Gossip Cop believes there to be elements of truth, but the story is ultimately misleading.
