They are two of the most scandal-prone people in the entertainment industry, and a few months ago, their marriage looked like a mess.
While Kim and Kanye’s celebratory season look shining recently may have made their relationship look bad for life, the scandal that raged on Twitter in July opened wide their marriage, with drama playing out in front of the world.
And in the middle of it all is a photo from two years ago.
PHOTOS THAT STARTED IT ALL
A photo of Kim meeting with rapper Meek Mill to discuss prison reform in 2018 at a Los Angeles hotel was found during Kanye’s infamous series of tweets earlier this year.
West shocked fans when he claimed he had been “trying to divorce” from Kim since the meeting at Waldorf in Beverly Hills, suggesting something unwanted was happening and he was “out of line”.
She wrote: “Meek is my man and respect. That’s my dog Kim out of line. I’m worth 5 billion dollars and more through Christ. But you won’t listen to MJ and now you will believe them?”
The photo that emerged as a result of the fiery tweet showed Kim, 40, and the 33-year-old rapper, real name Robert Rihmeek Williams, joining philanthropist Clara Wu at the rooftop restaurant, where they are believed to have discussed prison reform. – reasons they support passionately.
In response to Kanye’s wild claims, Mill wrote: “Sh ** is cappp cmon,” which is slang for lies.
Later, when the photo appeared, Mill added to the following: “Being in the wrong environment and the wrong people will make you forget your grades! Stay focused.”
It came after Kim received smoldering praise from Mill last year, with the rapper calling him “friend” and praising him for his work on prison reform.
Among a series of now deleted tweets, Kanye, 43, lashed out at Kim and his mother-in-law, Kris Jenner, claiming they tried to “lock me up”.
It came after the rapper held a presidential campaign rally in North Carolina where he shared intimate details about him and the reality star’s decision not to abort their daughter North.
During an emotional rally, West broke down in tears as he talked about how he and his wife were considering ending the pregnancy.
In another tweet, West claimed his wife tried to fly a doctor to Wyoming to “lock me up like Get Out” because she cried about “saving” her daughter North’s life.
The film Get Out, which is compared to his life by West, is about an African American man who is taken to the family home of his white girlfriend and reveals a series of disturbing details about them.
The majority of West’s tweets were quickly deleted but only 24 hours later he let go of his family again.
He then apologized to his wife.
“I would like to apologize to my wife Kim for announcing something of a personal nature,” he wrote. “I didn’t protect her like she protected me. To Kim I want to say I know I hurt you. I’m sorry. Thank you for always being there for me.”
Kardashian-West broke her silence about her husband’s mental health shortly after her nagging, posting a statement to Instagram in which she defended the rapper and mentioned bipolar disorder.
“Anyone who has this or has had a loved one in their life who has done it, knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand,” he wrote.
“I’ve never spoken publicly about how this affects us at home because I really protect our children and Kanye’s right to privacy regarding his health.”
But Kardashian said she felt compelled to speak up because of “mental health stigma and misconceptions.”
“Those who understand mental illness or compulsive behavior know that families are helpless unless members are minors,” he continued.
“People who are unconscious or distant from this experience can be judgmental and don’t understand that the individual himself must be involved in the process of getting help no matter how hard the family tries.”
Reports from December 13th recently suggest all is still not well with the pair, despite their efforts to put a united front in place.
According to the New York Post, the couple may still be together, but “lead separate lives”.
“Kim has a job and a project that is important to him, and Kanye has it,” a source told People. “Their lives don’t overlap much.”
“Kim looks happy,” and “very focused on work and goals,” they added.
“He firmly believes he can make a difference in terms of prison reform. This is his passion. His family is very proud of him.”
