The rapper, 35, who was once attached to the hip of his expecting lady, 32, has been keeping his distance for months now, leaving Kim to manage her pregnancy on her own while he works on his new album in France.
“He insists on staying in Paris,” says a friend of Kim’s, “but he could write and record anywhere.”
And with three months left until she gives birth to her first-born, Kim is reportedly paranoid about Kanye’s absence— and it sounds like she has reason to worry.
Their honeymoon phase is long gone.
A once love-struck Kanye has whisked Kim off to romantic spots like Rio de Janeiro and London. Now, “Kanye has been ignoring Kim’s pleas to visit her,” says a source close to her. “He’s staying in Paris— Kim has to fly there if she wants to see him.”
While Kim struggles with her pregnancy weight gain and battles feelings of abandonment in LA, Kanye is keeping company with 22-year-old hip-hop bombshell Iggy Azalea. “[Kim]’s incredibly stressed and has even started to wonder if Kanye’s cheating,” a family insider says.
Do you think Kim has reason to worry about Kanye’s absence during her pregnancy?
