Is Kris Jenner urging Kim Kardashian to leave Kanye West? A new report claims the momager is concerned for her daughter’s safety due to one of the rapper’s new songs. Gossip Cop, however, can debunk the story.

The untrue article appears in the latest issue of NW, with the sensational headline, “Kanye’s Shocking Confession: ‘I Wanted To Kill Kim!'” Of course, he never actually made such a statement. The quote is fabricated, but was sparked by the lyrics to West’s song, “I Thought About Killing You,” which appears on his new album, Ye. He has not spoken publicly about the meaning of track, nor is there any proof it is about his own wife.

But the tabloid contends, “Given the album’s numerous references” to Kardashian, “fans are convinced the shock snuff song is about her.” It’s then alleged Jenner, too, feels that way, and is “begging her to cut Yeezy loose for good.” A so-called “Kardashian family insider” is quoted as saying, “Kris is extremely worried for her daughter. She has no idea what Kanye could do next.” The magazine’s supposed source goes on to claim, “She wants Kim to get the hell out of the marriage because she believes her and all of the kids’ safety could be at stake.”

The alleged tipster even speculates that the purported situation could be “bringing up flashbacks to everything that happened” with O.J. Simpson and Jenner’s best friend, Nicole Brown Simpson. The outlet later editorializes, “If ever there was a time for Kim to run out on her rocky four-year marriage, it would be now… It sounds stressful in the Kimye Kamp right now.” To back up those assertions, the publication quotes from an interview with “Extra” in which Kardashian shared her initial reaction to West’s controversial slavery comments, admitting she cried and fought with him.

Significantly, though, the tabloid leaves out the part where she praises West, saying, “I know my husband always has the best intentions. He has the biggest heart.” Also not mentioned is Jenner’s Instagram tribute to West for his birthday last week, in which she affectionally called him “my son” and deemed herself a “#proudmama.” Jenner also stated, “Thank you for being a constant inspiration, for being the most wonderful father, friend, husband and son. I am so blessed to have you in my life.”

That directly contradicts the magazine’s narrative about Jenner wanting him out of their lives. Additionally, there’s proof that Kardashian is not currently upset with the rapper nor he with her. On Tuesday, West posted a photo to Twitter of himself with his arm around the reality star, tweeting with it, “Thank you to my wife for throwing me the most beautiful fun and intimate birthday party.”

Conclusion: NW, which falsely claimed Kardashian was ready to divorce West a month ago, now maintains her mom/manager is urging her to ditch him. The impetus for the story is the Grammy winner’s new song about murder, even though there’s no confirmation the track is about Kardashian. In contrast, both Kardashian and Jenner have made clear, in interviews and through social media, that they are standing by him. Fans can speculate on the meaning of “I Thought About Killing You” all they want, but the bottom line remains the same: West has both Jenner and Kardashian’s support, and there is no divorce on the horizon.
