Amid reports revealing Kanye West’s past infidelity against Kim Kardashian, Keeping Up With The Kardashians fans are noticing all the ways Kanye caused their divorce. Kanye is back in media headlines with the release of his 10th studio album Donda. In the album, Kanye opened up about the part he played in his failed marriage. It was on the song “Hurricane” where the Yeezy founder seemingly revealed that he cheated on Kim after the birth of their second child.
What many thought was Kanye’s nod toward his short-lived fling with model Irina Shayk turned out to be his confession on stepping out on his wife. Kanye and Kim’s differences became abundantly clear in the last year of their marriage. Kanye launched a failed presidential bid where he revealed private information regarding Kim’s first pregnancy with their daughter North West. He also went on emotional rants and tirades against his wife and mother-in-law for the world to see. By the end of 2020, sources revealed the private lives Kim and Kanye had been living.
In February, Kim took the big step and filed for divorce from Kanye. But it came after months of the reality star reportedly trying to save her marriage. In the final season, Kim broke down in tears after realizing her nearly seven-year marriage had come to an end. Kanye refused to live in the $60 million Calabasas home they shared with their four children and decided that he rather live alone out of his ranch in Wyoming. Kim admitted that she wasn’t able to be the type of spouse Kanye needed because of having her own demanding career. While Kim continued to speak highly of Kanye during their divorce, there were source reports for Kanye that did the exact opposite.
Shortly after her filing, it was revealed that Kanye changed his phone number and only allowed Kim to contact him through his security. He also is still the only one in the relationship who has moved on and dated someone else. It was also said that Kanye was actually the one who initiated the divorce and had wanted out of his marriage for some time. Now with the revelations on Kanye’s past cheating being revealed, it’s become clear that the “Stronger” rapper might be more to blame for the cause of his divorce.
From an outsider’s perspective, it looks like Kim was patient with Kanye despite his constant erratic behavior. Even after he embarrassed her publicly on a number of occasions, she still came out to show her support for all three of his Donda listening parties. But in the end, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star’s efforts weren’t enough to maintain her marriage, keep Kanye from cheating, or prevent him from moving on so quickly after her filing. It’s nice that he owned up to his wrong in his new album. But it could be too little too late.
