Trouble in paradise? Not exactly. Kim Kardashian may be posting fewer photos on social media, particularly of herself with husband Kanye West, for a good reason, according to Closer UK magazine. And it might have to do with those infamous political statements Kanye has made in the last few months.
Sources told the outlet that Kim — who shares North, 5, Saint, 2, and 11-month-old Chicago with the rapper — is allegedly afraid her husband is the cause of increasing negativity against her, which in turn hurts her reputation. An insider told Closer UK, “Kim fears her reputation has been severely damaged by Kanye, but short of divorcing him, she’s at her wits’ end on what to do.” But posting fewer photos of the couple together may be part of her strategy to save her rep, even if Kanye’s sinks.
You may recall that Kanye drummed up quite the controversy earlier this year, when he made comments about slavery being “a choice” and made it very clear he strongly supports President Donald Trump. A source previously told In Touch exclusively in May that, “Kim is losing it. She doesn’t want Kanye putting himself out there like he’s doing because it’s ruining his brand and her family’s image. She thinks he’s doing more damage to their empire than good. She certainly did not approve him going on TMZ and ranting and raving. She’s cringing.”
And those concerns may have led to Kim being much more cautious about the photos she posts with Kanye on social media. The insider told Closer UK, “She’s trying to speak up more to win the public back around, including speaking out when she disagrees with her husband. And she hopes that by posting less couple snaps on her social media and being far more low-key instead of flaunting themselves as a power couple, it will help prove to the public that they’re two separate individuals, with two very separate views.”
The source added, “She insists she shouldn’t be tarnished with the same brush as him.” But only time will tell if the public agrees with her.
