The divorce and custody battle between Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are getting nastier by the minute and the public is getting a front row seat.
Most recent back and forths between the former power couple all stem from their daughter Chicago’s 4th birthday party last month, in which Kanye blamed Kim for not extending an invitation to him, and stated that he had to find out the location of the party from Travis Scott, Kylie Jenner’s boyfriend.
It was all downhill from there. Kanye took to social media to air his grievances about his soon-to-be former wife.
In a later response to Kanye’s claims, according to Page Six, a source close to the Kardashian-Jenner camp stated that they didn’t understand why Kanye would make that claim against Kim, when they both had previously agreed to have separate birthday parties for little Chicago. The unnamed source also went on to say that Kanye barely tries to see his four children.
More recently, Kanye took to social media to attack Kim’s parenting skills in her allowing their oldest daughter, North, to post clips on social media platform, Tiktok. He asked his 10.7 million Instagram followers, “what should I do about my daughter being put on Tiktok against my will?”
Then, he went on to post Tiktok’s terms and conditions, which state that if a person is under 13, they should be placed on Tiktok for Younger Users, which has additional privacy and safety protections. North is 9 years-old.
Kim clapped back in an Instagram story post to her 284 million followers. “Kanye’s constant need for attacking me in interviews and on social media is actually more hurtful than any TikTok North might create. As the parent who is the main provider and caregiver for our children, I am doing my best to protect our daughter while also allowing her to express her creativity in the medium that she wishes with adult supervision — because it brings her happiness.”
The Skims founder went on to say, “divorce is difficult enough on our children and Kanye’s obsession with trying to control and manipulate our situation so negatively and publicly is only causing further pain for all.”
Mere hours later Kanye hit her with his rebuttal, doubling down on his issue with her surrounding Chicago’s party.
This is a a huge mess that doesn’t look like is going to get cleaned up anytime soon.
It’s so unfortunate for their four children, North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm, to witness their parents’ constant bickering between one another.
The writing was definitely on the wall before these two ever got married, or started a family. Kanye has shown time and time again that he is a difficult person to truly get along with. At least that’s what he’s consistently portrayed.
I had a strong feeling that this union wasn’t going be relationship goals for anyone.
And, now look. It’s a freakin’ mess!
Hopefully they get it together for the babies.
