Are Kim Kardashian and Kanye West secretly separated? A report claims the couple isn't being truthful about the state of their marriage. Gossip Cop, however, looked into the story and can reveal the real truth.
"Separated Again! Miserable Kim Kardashian 'Hiding' The End Of Her Marriage," reads an accusatory headline from RadarOnline. In the article, a so-called "source" is quoted as similarly saying, "Kim is hiding how bad things are with Kanye right now." The site claims Kardashian is upset the rapper "fled their home amid their crumbling marriage," but the supposed snitch acknowledges West went to "work on his music" while she films "Keeping Up with the Kardashians."
The way it's written, it's implied West committed some kind of crime by leaving Kardashian behind as she shoots her reality show, as if it's problematic that he's working on something else at the same time. That's a rather irrational interpretation. The article goes on to allege Kardashian is "amping up her public appearances" to "deflect the absence of her husband," with the webloid's purported tipster asserting, "Kim is trying to keep all eyes on her." That contention doesn't make much sense, either. Wouldn't solo appearances only make it more obvious that West is not currently with her?
The story has another logic problem. The outlet's alleged "source" maintains "Kim never tells anyone how things are with Kanye. All she ever says it [sic] that things are great and that she loves him," and insists, "She is covering up a lot." But how would this person know Kardashian is "covering up" the true status of her relationship if she "never tells anyone how things are" and only says "things are great"? How would this "source" know that she's really "hiding" things, but not share what those things are?
Why can't it just be Kardashian is telling the truth and not actually "hiding" anything? It actually seems like RadadrOnline is the one having issues. The site refers to "Kimye's demise," a "beleaguered marriage," and her "miserable relationship." Yet this article doesn't actually back up any of those bold statements with evidence of a "demise" or why their romance is "beleaguered" and "miserable," despite telling readers that "marriage troubles continue to plague the couple."
With this vagueness, all the outlet is really doing is taking West and Kardashian's physical separation, as he records his new album, and playing it up to be a secret legal separation when they aren't remotely the same. It's transparent. Gossip Cop still checked in with the reality star's rep, though, who exclusively tells us claims of an actual marital separation are "false." It's also worth noting the couple's third wedding anniversary is only a week and a half away.
As Gossip Cop has routinely pointed out, in these last three years the webloid has repeatedly insisted a divorce is imminent, but has been proven wrong again and again, like with an article last year falsely alleging Kardashian met with a divorce lawyer. The publication is banking on the hope that it will one day be right, since most celebrity marriages, unfortunately, do not last. And one day, Kimye may in fact split. But for now, all these stories continue to be fake news.
Gossip Cop believes there to be elements of truth, but the story is ultimately misleading.
