Kanye West is one of the biggest names in the music industry and regularly rubs shoulders with the likes of Jay-Z and Beyonce. However, while some say his celebrity has increased after he started dating Kim Kardashian, others say that his public image has taken a big hit.
The Kardashian brand, while bringing in millions of dollars a year in endorsements and their television show ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’, is not often associated with prestige, whereas Kanye West is often seen endorsing high-class brands such as Louis Vuitton. Has this finally token a toll on Kanye?
MTO reports that Kanye’s relationship with Kim is nearing its end and he’s looking to break things off with her, despite her reportedly being pregnant with his child. The report states that a source close to the couple has said, “Kanye was coming to Abu Dhabi for a concert and Kim wanted to come with him cause she loves that place. Ye didn’t allow her because he said it was dangerous for her to travel while pregnant.”
However, the source continued that the real reason he didn’t want her to travel was different, adding, “The real reason is his closest friends (Hov included) keep telling him to show up less with Kim, because she’s always a bad look for his image.”
If this report is true, the breakup will cause quite a splash in the news, even though it’s not entirely unexpected. The media has been predicting a breakup between the duo for a long time now, especially because Kanye’s public image and even his reported friendship with Jay-Z and Beyonce has suffered because of his relationship with Kim. However, leaving a pregnant woman might not be the best thing for his image, either.
The likeliest possibility is that this report isn’t accurate, because this ‘insider’ has just made a bunch of unsubstantiated claims about the status of Kanye’s and Kim’s relationship. While Kim definitely didn’t travel to Abu Dhabi for the concert, it’s all but certain now that she’s pregnant and it is very true that it’s dangerous for pregnant women to travel such long distances, especially after their first trimester. However, will the relationship last through Kim’s pregnancy? Well, that’s much less likely.
