Kanye West refuses to be the Kardashian family’s “next casualty,” a source told Page Six amid reports that Kim Kardashian wants a divorce.
“People around him are like, ‘He needs to get away from those crazy people.’ It’s just a curse over there. Anything with the Kardashians is tarnished and . . . they’re opportunistic people who completely take advantage of him. Even [Kanye’s] like, ‘F - - k this, I’m not going to be the next casualty,” a source told us, referencing how the men connected to the family including Khloé’s ex-husband, Lamar Odom, Kim’s ex-husband Kris Humphries and Kourtney’s baby daddy, Scott Disick, have all been demonized in one way or another.
While sources close to the family tell Page Six there has been tension in Kimye’s marriage since Kim’s Paris robbery, another source close to West insists, “The divorce stuff is totally untrue. If anything — with everything that’s been going on between the robbery and this episode with him — it’s brought them closer. Kim has been right by his side and they’ve gotten closer than ever through it. They were even out on a date last night. [The divorce rumor] is completely bogus and lame because it makes her look like she’s abandoning him in his time of need. It’s totally wrong. His friends want to be supportive of them and of her.”
We’re told Kardashian has been supportive and by his side since he was rushed to the hospital last month, and things are slowly getting better for the rapper.
“He’s doing really good. He’s with his kids and Kim at home, and he’s been recording. He’s not recording in a hard-core way, but he has a studio set up and is feeling inspired. His creative juices are flowing, and he’s determined to make the best album of his career. There’s no timeline. He’s not rushing toward it, but he doesn’t stop thinking about his creative projects,” the second source added.
