Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are on the road to divorce, which would lead them too soon be living the single life and ready to mingle… or could they be? Some fans feel like Kim might be using a certain tactic in order to win her soon-to-be ex-husband back into her life as she recently debuted a new look seemingly similar to what, or who, Kanye was rumored to be dating in the past.
This year started off on the wrong foot for the former couple when it was announced that KimYe would soon be a thing of the past. The couple were married for 7 years and shared four children before making the decision that their nuptials should be ended.
Trouble seemed to begin brewing for some time, and apparently Kim had enough when Kanye, known to display erratic behavior from time to time, dispelled some disturbing information as it pertains to a decision concerning their daughter North while on his presidential campaign trail.
“Even if my wife wants to divorce me after this speech, she brought North into the world even when I didn’t want to,” he said referring to the couple almost aborting their daughter. “She stood up and she protected that child.”
A source told PEOPLE that despite the divorce news, the process has been very amicable. “Kim and Kanye are getting along,” the source said. “They have both stayed true to their commitment to make the best situation for the kids. Kim is very happy that they have managed to keep things calm. She thinks Kanye is a good dad. She wants him to be able to spend as much time with the kids as he wants.”
The source added, “For every week that goes by since she filed for divorce, Kim seems happier. She knows that filing for divorce was the right decision. The kids are doing as good as she could hope.”
And then the beginning of the year also brought the rumors that Kanye was romantically linked to Youtube personality and makeup maven, Jeffree Star. Things didn’t get any better when Jeffree himself eluded to the rumors being true.
Without evidence, the rumors which stemmed from a TikTok user began to spread like wildfire. Star would then come on social media in the midst of the hoopla with a post in which he says. “I’m ready for Sunday Service,” adding fuel to the fire.
He then would post other hints that the rumor was possibly true, as he responded to a fan stating that he was in Wyoming “having the best time” and that they should “come visit”.

Reportedly, Kim Kardashian was embarrassed by the rumors and asked Star to cease feeding into them, as it appeared he was doing so to “gain attention.” It is to be noted that while Star was embroiled in a scandal in which he was accused of being a racist, Kim Kardashian boldly stood up for him. She would later apologize for standing up for him, claiming it was not her place to speak on the matter.
Eventually, Jeffree would take to social media to debunk the rumors, although the damage had already been done in the hearts and minds of many pertaining to himself and Kanye. Nevertheless, he made a video addressing the whole situation.
“This is so weird, this is so stupid. Let me just say this one time, I like very tall men,” said star in the video. “Me and Kanye have never hung out. And this whole thing is really funny. I get why people are really laughing about this.”
With the divorce being a hot-ticket story for media outlets, many reported every detail from every source possible to the Kardashian clan, in which reportedly annoyed Kanye. Page Six stated from sources close to Kanye that he considered the family to be a “huge spin machine” as he was “super annoyed that the story is being constantly presented as her divorcing him.”
“Actually it was him saying for a year that they have nothing in common except the kids and he wanted out,” insisted the insider. “She pulled all the stops to try to save the marriage.” They also add claims that he had her file in order for her to save face, while he changed his number and told her the only way to contact him would be through his security.
While it is unknown whether either of the two has moved on, reports are speculating heavily. Numerous outlets have reported that Kardashian has suitors hitting her up left to right as they vie for her hand in courtship.
On the other hand, Kanye was recently seen popping up on DJ Khaled and it looks as though he still was proudly wearing his wedding ring.
“TRUE STORY: KANYE STOPPED BY MY HOUSE AT 8 AM THE OTHER DAY!” Khaled captioned the photo. “I DIDNT KNOW HE WAS COMING! HE HAD @chefmelissazuniga make him SOME EGGS WITH KETCHUP AND VEGAN BACON.”
Fans were quick to notice that West was still holding on to the space on his left ring finger, keeping it warm with the wedding band.
Meanwhile, fans are also speculating that Kim could be trying to get Kanye back as she recently switched her look up, bleaching her eyebrows. Fans were quick to note the similarities to Jeffree Star’s appearance, as he is known to do the same.
