Kanye West has been the most famous thing in Hollywood headlines the past 4 months that isn’t related to Covid-19. His antics are well-known and are numerous. For a quick reminder, check out the article below:
The father of 4 was diagnosed with bipolar disorder a few years and while that might be a mitigating factor in how erratic his behaviour can be, there are still some like his wife who believes he should allow for more medical attention from his doctors, something that the rapper has been averse to do.
And let’s not forget that Kim has been the most affected as she has been the recipient of a lot of his shenanigans during his many Twitter tirades.
Things got so bad that there were rumours swirling in the media that Kim was contemplating divorce the rapper and producer.
But that all seems to have changed as Kanye was seen making amends with her by publicly apologising to his wife and then visiting a hospital for diagnosis and was found to be o.k.

That wasn’t all as the two were recently spotted at his Wyoming ranch having a heart to heart trying to work things out. Despite his apology, reports indicate that his wife wants him to seek professional help that can deal with his issue once and for all.
Kanye’s psychological issues first came into the public domain when he was hospitalised in 2016 with hallucinations and paranoia.
Hollywood marriages have a higher than normal failure rate among the American populace. Most celebs in America are either on their 2nd or 3rd marriages and it is something that has become par for the course and isn’t frowned upon anymore.
The things Kim has gone through the past few years with her man would respond in either of 3 ways;
-Stay with him and ask him to get treatment
-Have her break down.
-Move on and divorce her husband.
Kim Kardashian has chosen the first and has been resolute even if there have been cracks about her contemplating moving on from her fashion designer husband.
And why is she still with him? My theory? Money. Kanye is still an appreciating asset. His deal with Adidas for Yeezus has already made him a dollar billionaire and will keep him in the cheddar for the foreseeable future.
California where the couple have stayed for most of their marriage is a no-fault divorce state. If Kim were to ever divorce him, she would at least take half of his fortune. The man is worth at least 1.3 billion dollars at the moment while she is worth at least 900 million dollars.
Even if she doesn’t need his money, why would a smart woman like Kim leave a potential gravy train like Kanye while his worth hasn’t even reached its zenith? Some even value his Yeezy brand at 3 billion dollars with the rapper himself touting it at the 5 billion mark.
Either way, the brand will keep on growing as there is a hunger for it, with the rapper even signing a 10-year deal in 2020 with clothes store, Gap.
While my reasoning might be cynical, prior celeb relationships have shown me that most marriages are kept together, not because of the love but the convenience. Once Kanye’s is done, he most likely will be done with Kim. But what do I know?
