Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are on vacation in the Caribbean to save their marriage, according to TMZ. Sources told the site on Thursday, August 6, that the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star and the “Stronger” rapper are on vacation at a remote location in the Caribbean with their four kids as they work out their issues as a family.
While we’re sure there will be a lot of candid talks between Kanye and Kim, a source told TMZ that there’s one topic that’s off limits: politics. News of Kanye and Kim’s vacation comes after the “Gold Digger” rapper’s controversial presidential campaign rally in South Carolina in July, where he claimed that he and his wife almost aborted their eldest daughter, North, when Kim first learned she was pregnant in 2012. Sources also told TMZ that Kanye made it clear to Kim that he’s continuing his bid for the White House, despite his wife’s issues about his political career. TMZ called it a “non-negotiable issue.”
Kanye and Kim’s vacation also comes after the Grammy winner’s Twitter rants in late July, where he accused the E! personality of cheating on him with rapper Meek Mill. His Twitter rants, which have since been deleted, also included allegations that Kim and her mother, Kris Jenner, were trying to fly to Wisconsin, where Kanye was staying, to “lock” him “up” with a doctor. The “Heartless” rapper also claimed that he was the inspiration for Jordan Peele’s 2017 movie Get Out, in which a Black man is kidnapped by his white girlfriend’s family.
After his rants, Kanye took to his Twitter on July 25 to apologize to his wife for the hurt he caused her. “I would like to apologize to my wife Kim for going public with something that was a private matter. I did not cover her like she has covered me. To Kim I want to say I know I hurt you. Please forgive me. Thank you for always being there for me,” he wrote at the time.
Kim and Kanye’s vacation also comes after a source told Us Weekly that Kim has been meeting with divorce lawyers in case her marriage with the “Famous” rapper isn’t able to be saved. “Kim has been meeting with lawyers to explore and talk about divorce,” the insider said, adding that Kim has “wanted to make it work” for years.
