Looks sure can be deceiving! Life & Style has exclusively learned that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are desperately trying to keep up the facade of a happy marriage. On Sept. 23, while Kim cheered on North at her very first fashion show, Kanye was thousands of miles away throwing out the first pitch with Saint at a Chicago Cubs game. It may have appeared to be a simple scheduling conflict but, sadly, it goes far deeper than that.
“Kim and Kanye have grown further and further apart, emotionally and physically,” an insider admitted. “They not only sleep in separate rooms — [but] they’re also leading separate lives at this point. They’re pretty much estranged.”
Unfortunately, the pair has been dealing with marital strife for quite some time now. During the most recent episode of KUWTK, the mother-of-three revealed to her sister Khloé Kardashian that she and the “Ghost Town” rapper have been “fighting a lot.”
Additionally, Kiki noted that her husband has been feeling “neglected” because of her commitment to her three children — North, 5, Saint, 2, and Chicago, 8 months. “I think so many husbands feel neglected when you start having kids and then all of their attention gets taken away,” the 37-year-old explained.
Koko then offered her insight on the situation. “Sometimes men still want to be treated as, like, the first baby. I know Kim is so overwhelmed and I think sometimes it’s easy to get distracted,” she confessed in her private interview. “But your husband still wants you to take care of him. I’m sure with three kids you’re tired at the end of the day and you don’t make that a priority, but she really has to.” Hmmm, here’s hoping that Kim and Kanye can turn things around and start making each other a priority… before it’s too late!
