Kim Kardashian has ‘begged’ Kanye to end presidential run: Report
Amid a report that Kim is working to save their six-year marriage, she is also said to be urging him to end his long shot presidential bid for the sake of their family. Kanye, however, has gone the complete other direction.
“Kim begged Kanye to stop his presidential thing, to stop talking about their kids at rallies. But he ignored her and instead he went ahead and hired more people . . . and tried to register in more states,” a source told adding that Kanye “just won’t stop” in his desire to be POTUS.
Kanye announced on July 4 on Twitter that he was running for President of the United States. At the time, Kim replied to the tweet with an emoji of an American flag, seemingly a show of support. Now, she sees that presidential bid as a huge hinderance to the family, particularly after Kanye’s emotional campaign rally in South Carolina in July in which he spoke about he and Kim discussing whether to abort their first pregnancy.
He later tweeted that he has been eyeing a divorce from the “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star, only to later delete the tweet and apologize to Kim publicly. Kim has said Kanye is in the midst of bipolar episode.
While this has gone on, Kim and Kanye have reportedly been living separate lives — she’s been in Los Angeles with their kids, while he’s in at their $14 million ranch in Wyoming. Multiple reports said he was ignoring Kim’s calls for several days, but the duo reunited briefly in Wyoming last week. But, it didn’t look like a happy reunion, as photos showed her crying while they appeared to be involved in a heated discussion.
“This is a nightmare for Kim, she is looking for a way out. But she’s also a nice person and wants to do the best for her kids.
Still, Kim hasn’t given up. On Aug. 2, photos emerged showing Kanye and son Saint boarding a private plane in Wyoming and hours later, TMZ — citing sources close to the West family — reported that Kim and Kanye are taking “a private family vacation to try and work things out.” Kim and Kanye haven’t “seen each other much at all for months,” the website said.
The vacation is something the couple talked about when Kim was in Wyoming days earlier, and it “will be a time for [Kanye] to prove … he’s willing to change for his family.
