In January of this year, news broke that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West would be getting a divorce. It’s the end of an era: Kimye were the couple of the 2010s and their divorce announcement caused plenty of fanfare – particularly for us Keeping Up With The Kardashian fans.
Of course, Kanye West’s birthday falls smack bang in the middle of peak Gemini season and despite the fact that ’Ye is no longer one of them, Kim Kardashian and co still took a moment to publicly wish him well. The maturity!
On Instagram Kim Kardashian posted a photo of her and ex Kanye West, along with their kids North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm. “Happy Birthday, Love U for Life! 🎈” Kim wrote for the caption.
Meanwhile, my ex has recently responded to my Instagram Story saying “lol”, so there’s that.
Khloé Kardashian also posted to celebrate her “brother for life” Kanye, with a rather random photo showing Kanye in a full tee in the ocean. Obviously Khloé did that thing where you choose the hottest photo of you that that person you’re celebrating just happens to be in. Happy birthday babes!
“Happy birthday to my brother for life!!! Have the best birthday Ye! Sending you love and endless blessings!!” Khloe wrote. Kim, cordial as ever, posted a balloon emoji – a comment that has since racked up over 15,000 likes. The internet is a funny place.
"Kim wants to control the PR campaign of the divorce and she was blindsided by leaks about the divorce reports," a separate source told Us Weekly about the decision to feature their marriage breakdown heavily in the final season.
This week’s episode gave more of a glimpse into that split, with shots of Kim breaking down at the thought of ending the marriage. “I honestly can’t do this anymore,” Kim Kardashian says. “Why am I still in this, like, place where I’m stuck for years? Like, he goes and moves to a different state, every year, I have to be together so I can raise the kids, you know? And he’s an amazing dad, he’s done an amazing job.”
“I feel like a fucking failure, that it’s like, a third fucking marriage. I feel like a fucking loser. But I can’t even think about that like, I want to be happy,” she says.
Ugh. Breakups suck.
