Kim Kardashian attends the Jean-Paul Gaultier Haute Couture Fall Winter 2022 2023 show as part of Paris Fashion Week on July 06, 2022 in Paris, France. Kanye West attends a game between the Washington Wizards and the Los Angeles Lakers in the fourth quarter at Crypto.com Arena on March 11, 2022 in Los Angeles, California.
Kim Kardashian is not helping Kanye West this time amid his recent problematic public outbursts. Though she has stepped in and stood by him over the years, she has, apparently, had enough this time. Sources familiar with the situation told gossip website TMZ that the SKKN founder has totally removed herself from the situation with the Yeezy designer. They report that she has not spoken to him directly in weeks.
Sources close to Kanye, 45, say they wish Kim, 41, was still in the picture to step in. Those close to him are concerned that he could lose a lot of money, due to all of his recent controversies. Ye has apparently made several attempts to reach out to Kardashian to no avail. She is said to be focusing her attention on their children.
Last week, Kanye showed up to North’s basketball game wearing his controversial White Lives Matter shirt. Eyewitnesses at the game say that Kim did not speak to Kanye nor did she look in his direction. She even went as far as to have her car moved in the parking lot in order to avoid any communication.
As we earlier reported, Kim hired extra security at their kids’ school after Kanye repeatedly mentioned the name of their school on social media in his pleas to have them attend his private Christian school Donda Academy. The increased security presence isn’t because the Donda rapper is the threat, but there is concern someone online could see his messages about the school and show up on campus, posing a risk to students. Kim has resisted moving their children to his school because it’s not accredited. A recent Rolling Stone article says Donda Academy offers “Parkour classes, a cone of silence, and a principal with no apparent formal teaching experience.”
Jaden Smith Leaves Kanye's Fashion Show Over 'White Lives Matter' Shirt
Jaden Smith doesn’t care who you are — if he’s not feeling “the message,” he’s out. That’s what happened on Monday (October 3) during Kanye West’s YZY SZN 9 presentation during Paris Fashion Week. The musician and actor has criticized Kanye for wearing a shirt with a “White Lives Matter” slogan across the back. Before the surprise Yeezy fashion show started, Ye had a message for the attendees: “I am Ye, and everyone here knows that I am the leader,” he said at one point, before adding: “You can’t manage me.”
The showcase of West’s season nine collection also saw models walk the runway in white versions of the “White Lives Matter” shirt.
Posting on Twitter after the show, Smith, 24, wrote that he “had to dip.” In a series of follow up tweets, Jaden continued to add commentary about Ye. “True leaders lead.” In a since-deleted tweet, he wrote: “I can’t stand behind what Kanye’s saying, he does not have the full support of the youth.” In tweets that are still on his page at the time of writing, Smith added: “Black Lives Matter.” He also wrote: “I don’t care who it is if I don’t feel the message I’m out.”
This follows the news of Jaden’s father, Will Smith, making his comeback to cinema since his famed slap-heard-round-the-world with Chris Rock. In a based-on-a-true-story film titled, Emancipation, Peter (Smith), a runaway slave journeyed north, outwitting cold-blooded hunters and surviving the unforgiving swamps of Louisiana along the way. After escaping to freedom, Peter joined the Union Army. When he showed his bare back during an army medical examination, photos were taken of the scars from a near-fatal whipping delivered by an overseer on the plantation owned by John and Bridget Lyons. The Independent published the photo, known as The Scourged Back, in May of 1863. It appeared in Harper’s Weekly‘s July 4 issue and became indisputable proof of the cruelty and barbarity of slavery in America.
The film will open in theaters on December 2 and stream on December 9. Watch the trailer below:
As noted by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), “White Lives Matter” is a “white supremacist phrase that originated in early 2015 as a racist response to the Black Lives Matter movement”. The phrase has also been used by supporters of former president Donald Trump.
