Here’s Why Kim Kardashian Was Noticeably Absent From Kanye’s Meeting With Trump Yesterday
The KUWTK star apparently had several reasons for staying home.
2016 officially reached peak weird yesterday when Kanye West, who left hospital last week following “a temporary psychotic episode”, hit up Trump tours to meet with the new president elect Donald Trump.
While what the pair actually discussed in their 30-minute meeting is yet to be revealed, it was noted by fans that Kanye’s wife Kim was noticeably not by her husband’s side for the historic moment.
Kim has certainly been staying out of the limelight since being robbed at gunpoint in Paris back in October but according to Hollywood Life that wasn’t the only reason she wasn’t there to support Kanye.
“Kim was also invited to the Trump meeting with Kanye,” a source told the gossip site. “But [she] turned down the opportunity. She did not want to join for several reasons, but mostly because she is not a supporter of Trump,”
The source added that Kim wasn’t happy for Kanye to go to the meeting alone so soon after being discharged from hospital and so sent Kris Jenner’s boyfriend Corey Gamble as a chaperone instead.
Perhaps tellingly, Kim’s absence comes amidst rumours that the couple are working through some issues right now, with some sources even claiming that they’re on the brink of divorce.
A friend of Kimye told US Weekly earlier this month that Kim “doesn’t want to stay married” and has started to build a case for full custody of her and Kanye’s two kids, North and Saint.
If those reports are to be believed, perhaps the “several reasons” the ‘source’ is referring to could be a whole lot more complex than we think.
