Why Kris Jenner is wrong about a Kim Kardashian/Kanye West divorce

Shockingly, all does not appear to be well in reality TV/rapper land. reports that trouble may be brewing between Kim Kardashian and her mouthy hubby, Kanye West.

Despite Kardashian’s alleged unhappiness with Yeezus, momager Kris Jenner forbids Kim from getting another divorce because she thinks it will torpedo her career. She couldn’t be more wrong if she tried.

According to the article, Jenner fears her daughter’s career would not survive another highly publicized divorce. Mama Jenner assumes that because Kardashian divorced hubby Kris Humphries after 72 days of marriage, the public would write Kim off if she divorced again. Jenner fears a divorce from baby daddy West would make Kardashian a laughingstock.

Jenner isn’t completely off in her logic, but she needs to take a look around her. Her daughter already is a laughingstock. Granted, Kardashian is laughing all the way to the bank, but is there anyone who takes her seriously? Did Jenner not see the numerous parodies — including a hilarious one by Ellen DeGeneres — of Kardashian’s “break the internet” ass pic? Kardashian can make an ass of herself without any help from a West divorce.

The matriarch of the Jenner/Kardashian clan fears Kardashian’s career would be over if she divorced West, but we disagree. West is a professional at upsetting people. Whenever we read about his latest rant, we think, “What contest in hell did Kim win?” Who could live with that guy? We doubt very much if Kardashian’s fans would abandon her if she dumped West. To the contrary, most people would slow clap her decision because he comes off as an angry, divisive individual with a god complex.

Would Kim Kardashian mind if her daughter followed in her naked footsteps? also reported that Kardashian and West’s marriage is little more than a business arrangement, and Kardashian isn’t happy about it. A source told the gossip outlet, “Kim feels like their relationship is more of a business relationship than a real marriage. All they do is talk about business whenever they’re together and it’s stressing Kim out more than it ever has before.”

Celebrities, particularly self-motivated, bigger-better-more-now ones, start to make poor decisions when they are unhappy. Tousles with the paparazzi, temper tantrums, drinking binges and extramarital affairs are not uncommon when a celebrity’s life is not going the way they want it to. We’d argue that these things are far more detrimental to a celebrity’s fame than divorcing an inflammatory loudmouth.

Kardashian somehow wormed her way into unprecedented fame before Humphries and before West. She’s undeniably gorgeous and as long as she continues to bare herself on magazine covers and on social media, she will remain an object of desire for millions of men. She’s branded herself into oblivion, and we doubt a West divorce would undo any of that. The only thing Kardashian may have to endure if she dumps West is a lot of high fives from complete strangers.
