Kim Kardashian has gone solo at this year’s MET Gala. As expected, Kanye West was not on her side when she walked the red carpet of the famed fashion event in New York Monday night. While reports claimed it shouldn’t be taken as a red flag, the rapper’s absence still had many wondering whether it had something to do with their rumored marital problems.
“Kim will be going solo. [Kanye] is still very much enjoying his time off from public events,” a source told People. “He’ll be staying back in L.A. with their kids.”According to the insider, everything is great between the couple. In fact, the Heartless hitmaker was even supportive of her wife gracing the event by herself.
It had reportedly nothing to do with the Met Gala, but the stress and pressure of a big red carpet. “He just wasn’t quite there yet,” a separate source said. While this is no big deal for the two, it somehow is for their fans.
Monday’s event marked the first time the 36-year-old Kardashian attended the fashion event alone. She has joined the coveted party with her husband since they debuted as a couple at the 2013 Met Gala while she was pregnant with their daughter, North. Trouble in paradise?
Kim Kardashian Kanye West Divorce
Fans can’t help but attribute Kanye’s decision to skip the party to their alleged failing marriage. It’s no secret that Kim and Kanye have been bombarded with divorce rumors since late last year. Details are sparse with majority claiming it started from their political differences. We can recall Kanye was a loyal supporter of then-GOP nominee Donald Trump while her wife voted for Hillary Clinton. But that apparently was just a small part of the longer story arc.
When Kanye’s hospitalization came November, speculations intensified. Since then, they have been looking down the barrel of a Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie–esque tabloid cycle despite debunking the allegations several times. More recently, rumors resurfaced again that they are on the brink of divorce. The reason? Baby No. 3.
An insider asserted that Kim believes “another kid will save their marriage, but she and Kanye can’t agree on anything involved in this process.” Gossip Cop, however, thankfully declared the reports false. Such is apparently the case as well with the latest Kim Kardashian Kanye West divorce rumors stemming from Met Gala 2017.
Marriage on the rocks? Here’s the TRUTH!
Neither the couple nor their reps have addressed the accusations yet. But we’ll likely not hear one given it’s a baseless claim just like the majority of the Kimye divorce reports.
As usual, we’re left to wonder if a legal separation is indeed in the cards for the parents of North West, 3, and Saint West, 1. Hopefully, it’s not. There’s around $300 million at stake, not to mention the well-being of Kimye’s children and the issue of custody. But if they do push through with a divorce, it will drag on for a very long time and more likely turn personal that social media might not be able to handle it.
Met Gala 2017
In the meantime, here’s Kim at this year’s MET Gala, going simple in a white Vivienne Westwood dress—a departure from last year’s futuristic silver dress with a thigh-high split. If you noticed, the socialite also skipped the jewelry, no thanks to her harrowing Paris robbery experience.
What do you think of her getup for her first solo MET Gala appearance? How does it compare to her past MET gowns? Are you suspicious of Kanye’s absence too? Sound off in the comments section below!
