Kim Kardashian apparently isn’t only the center of Kanye West’s world, she’s the star of his latest single, “White Dress.” The cover of the single even features the Keeping up with the Kardashians fashionista in a bridal gown. But with wedding bells seemingly imminent for the reality show star and the rapper, there is one pesky detail holding up the show. Kardashian is technically still married! But is her mom-ager, Kris Jenner, to blame?
“It’s Kris Jenner’s fault that Kim is still married to Kris [Humphries],” a source recently revealed, as Entertainmentwise reports. “Kris has decided that she will let the divorce drag on because she is not willing to give into any of Kris’s demands. Kim wants to just settle out of court, but Kris Jenner is adamant that Kris will not get away with calling the marriage a scam. She keeps telling Kim that if they give in and admit the marriage was fake for the cameras, their fans would never forgive them…”
It may seem that mommy dearest is being demanding and overbearing in this situation, as she’s continuing to force Kim to deal with the tiresome divorce proceedings, while preventing any serious wedding talk between her and West. But the flip side shows a mother and a manager who’s looking out for her daughter’s best interests–both personally and professionally. Kim surely wants to retain as much of her reputation (the good parts, at least) as she can after the divorce, and the “scam” brand is not one she wants to highlight on her rÃ©sumÃ©. Settling for a quickie solution to the divorce may seem like a good thing now, but it could come with lasting consequences.
Unfortunately, Kim Kardashian has been rather unlucky in love with her two failed marriages. Her romantic story certainly hasn’t played out as successfully as her famous career. And she could be slightly envious of her younger sister Khloe Kardashian Odom’s relatively stable marriage to Lamar Odom, and her older sis Kourtney Kardashian’s family with partner Scott Disick and their two children.
Hopefully, the third time–and a “White Dress” rapper–is the charm for Kim.
