Another day, another rumor. Kanye West's inner circle wants him to fly the coop when it comes to the Kardashian family, a source told the New York Post.
The report from the newspaper comes the same week that Us Weekly reported that Kanye's wife, Kim Kardashian West, wants out of their 2 1/2-year marriage. Several other reputable outlets quoted sources who admitted that there was tension in the marriage, but said that splitting is nowhere near their radar.
Page Six, the Post's gossip section, indicates that perhaps Kanye is the one who could be leaving.
"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," the source said, adding that Kanye, himself, has said he's "not going to be the next casualty.""
In the past, many of the men that the Kardashian sisters have been with have been somewhat demonized, from Kim's ex Kris Humphries to Khloe Kardashian's ex Lamar Odom. Of course, Kourtney Kardashian's boyfriend Scott Disick has felt the scorn of the family in the past.
Still, Page Six quotes another Yeezus friend who backs the reports that any notion of a divorce is simply false.
"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," the source said, referring to his recent hospitalization. "It's totally wrong. His friends want to be supportive of them and of her."
Since leaving the hospital, Kanye was been hitting the recording studio. Page Six's source said his health scare could being a good thing from a creative standpoint.
"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," the source said. "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."
