Kim Kar­dashian dumped by hubby Kanye West


OK! (Australia) - - Contents -

New York Fash­ion Week has al­ways been a top pri­or­ity for Kim Kar­dashian and Kanye West. At­tend­ing the twiceyearly event was their way of show­ing the world that their mar­riage was solid. But this time around, the 40-year-old Yeezy de­signer was MIA. In fact, he’s been miss­ing for months.

It’s been al­most 70 days since Kanye was last pho­tographed with Kim, 36. He’s been choos­ing in­stead to hide away in a se­cluded record­ing stu­dio up­state or at the fam­ily man­sion in Bel Air – alone. Now, many be­lieve it isn’t a ques­tion of ‘if ’ the pair will di­vorce, but ‘when’.

Dis­in­ter­ested and dis­con­nected from the woman he once gushed was a mod­ern-day Mar­i­lyn Mon­roe, the trou­bled rap­per ig­nored Kim on Mother’s Day and even on their May wed­ding an­niver­sary af­ter years of spoil­ing her with lav­ish gifts, like string or­ches­tras and elab­o­rate flower walls, hint­ing that their union has been in dis­ar­ray for some time.

Even Kim ad­mits that the man she once called her ‘best friend’ is more of a busi­ness ad­vi­sor these days. ‘I usu­ally go to Kanye for ad­vice about my brand, my life, my im­age,’ she says. ‘If it’s other drama, I go to one of my best friends, Tracy [Nguyen Ro­mu­lus]. She used to be Kanye’s pub­li­cist. I al­ways get her opin­ion on ev­ery­thing.’

Once upon a time, Kanye’s point of view was para­mount to Kim. But with­out him to guide her at Fash­ion Week, the rap­per and de­signer’s for­mer muse was sav­aged by crit­ics, mak­ing the trip from LA to New York a lonely one.

Dumped by the man who once gushed, ‘Kim is like a fan­tasy, pe­riod. She’s like a dream girl’, and who con­fessed, ‘I was in love with her be­fore I was ever able to talk with her’, Kim’s had to face her naysay­ers head on at NYFW. ‘Her fash­ion has been ter­ri­ble lately,’ wrote one, while an­other sensed there was more going on be­hind her strange, re­veal­ing out­fits. ‘What a mess of a woman.’

Back in LA, Kanye’s been spot­ted spend­ing time with the cou­ple’s daugh­ter North, four, and mis­er­ably roam­ing Hol­ly­wood, a far cry from his days at the top of the fash­ion and mu­sic world.

And as the one-year an­niver­sary of Kim’s Paris rob­bery ap­proaches, he’s won­der­ing when she’ll stop broad­cast­ing the ins and outs of her trau­matic or­deal. Af­ter all, Kanye suf­fered a men­tal break­down and was hos­pi­talised in the weeks that fol­lowed, but has kept his side of the story pri­vate. ‘Kanye is over it and act­ing dis­mis­sively to­ward his wife,’ an in­sider re­veals. ‘He’s done lis­ten­ing to her com­plain non­stop. He has a big ego and ul­ti­mately, it’s al­ways about him.’

The in­sider’s com­ments make news of the cou­ple’s sur­ro­gacy all the more heart­break­ing. With a baby girl due in Jan­uary, Kim is now fac­ing the very real and ter­ri­fy­ing prospect of rais­ing three kids un­der five alone. ‘Right now, things are very tough for their mar­riage,’ a friend re­veals.

But Kim has a strong sup­port base be­hind her in the form of her sis­ters and mother. ‘My fam­ily was so close grow­ing up; now that I’m a mum, I un­der­stand the bond my mum and dad felt with us,’ she says.

And it’s that pow­er­ful legacy that she plans to pass down to her chil­dren as she moves for­ward with­out sup­port from her hus­band.

‘I have such un­con­di­tional love for my kids,’ Kim adds. ‘No mat­ter what [hap­pens], I will al­ways love them and sup­port them.’


LAST PICS JULY 7 70 DAYS APART Kim told friends, ‘Kanye and I are like strangers.’ A close pal adds, ‘Kim feels like their re­la­tion­ship is more of a busi­ness re­la­tion­ship than a real mar­riage.’
