Kanye West’s presidential run was ‘the final straw’ for Kim Kardashian
Kanye West’s failed presidential run was “the final straw” for Kim Kardashian, who until then had battled to save their troubled marriage.
Page Six exclusively revealed that the couple is heading for divorce after nearly seven years of marriage — and his bizarre presidential campaign made Kardashian realize that she “needed to end the marriage for the sake of her kids and her own sanity,” a source told Page Six.
West’s self-serving bid kicked off with an insane speech in July last year during which he wrongly claimed Harriet Tubman “never actually freed the slaves.”
That same month, he also called momager Kris Jenner “Kris Jong-Un” on Twitter and claimed that the famous family was trying to force him into psychiatric treatment.
A second source told us of Kardashian’s reaction to West’s presidential run, “She never came out publicly and endorsed him. Her silence on it spoke volumes.” He finally conceded on Nov. 3.
The first source continued, “Kim was really supportive of Kanye during his struggle with his mental health. But she knows she has to do the right thing for her kids.”
