Kim and Kanye had a huge 'blowout' over her White House meeting with Donald Trump
Kim met with the president to discuss prison reforms and was particularly focused on the case of a 63-year-old great-grandmother Alice Marie Johnson
Kanye West has repeatedly made it clear that he is a massive fan of President Donald Trump but, apparently, the rapper was not pleased with his wife Kim Kardashian visiting him at the White House recently. To be precise, Kanye was unhappy with the fact that his wife had not invited him to come on her May 30 private meeting with POTUS.
“Kanye was upset over Kim’s visit to the White House because he wanted to go too. They had an epic blowout fight over the trip. Kanye wanted to make it about him. He felt like he also has some big ideas he needs to discuss with the president,” an insider told Hollywood Life recently.
Kim met the President to discuss prison reforms and was particularly focused on the case of the 63-year-old great-grandmother Alice Marie Johnson, who is a non-violent first-time drug offender currently serving a life sentence in a federal penitentiary.
“Kim convinced Kanye that the timing wasn’t right. Kim begged Kanye to back off. She pleaded with him that he already had his turn meeting Donald. She encouraged her husband to focus on his album release and his new music. She is the only one Kanye will listen to in situations like this and Kim was able to quickly calm him down,” the insider continued.
“She was glad that he relented and gave her space to have her meeting with the President. She promised to hurry back to his side, for his album release and listening parties. Kanye is proud that Kim is taking an active role in politics and he just wanted to be a part of it too,” added the source.
The popular TV star was scheduled to meet with White House senior adviser and son-in-law to the president, Jared Kushner, in order to push for clemency to be granted to the 63-year-old Johnson.
Trump later tweeted a photo of himself with Kim in the Oval Office. However, he did not reveal the minutes of the meeting pertaining to Johnson's release. "Great meeting with @KimKardashian today, talked about prison reform and sentencing," Trump said.
"I would like to thank President Trump for his time this afternoon. It is our hope that the President will grant clemency to Ms Alice Marie Johnson who is serving a life sentence for a first-time, non-violent drug offense," the reality star tweeted. "We are optimistic about Ms Johnson's future and hopeful that she — and so many like her — will get a second chance at life."
Many were surprised when reality queen Kim Kardashian visited the White House on Wednesday, but leave it to gossip queen Wendy Williams to rain on Kim's parade. The outspoken talk show host taunted the 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star by asking, “Kim, why don’t you do something closer to home, like mental health,” taking a direct dig at her husband Kanye West's recent outbursts.
The host further added, "I applaud anything she’s doing in terms of making things better for somebody else. Good for you, Kim!”
Wendy also speculated on her show that Kim is "bored with her money and unsatisfied with her marriage." She defended her statements, saying, "You know what? Here's my thing. She wants prison reform and that's what she's there for. She has 100 million followers on social media. I hate to say it, but her voice is more influential, apparently, than a lot of politicians out here trying to do the one-two shuffles. Her voice is more influential than you or me."
