Kanye West isn't leaving without his Yeezys, rapper moves out of Kim Kardashian's home with 500 shoes
If you weren't 100 percent sure that the Kim Kardashian-Kanye West marriage is headed to divorce-ville, here's proof. Kanye just moved some things out of the Calabasas mansion which was the marital home he shared with the reality star.
And what might be those things be? According to a source that spoke to Page Six, the bulk of what Kanye took with him were 500 pairs of sneakers from his shoe collection. The rapper behind the Yeezy empire had once posted a picture of his own collection on Twitter, which he had titled shoes. The 67 pairs on display were probably his favorites, were a mix of sneakers, slides and boots. As to be expected, many of them were from his own Yeezy collection.
Is Kanye West trying to protect his sneakers from Kim Kardashian?
Kim is already on vacation and had posted a picture of herself in a bikini with a pair of Yeezys. Specifically, Yeezy’s polarizing Foam Runners made from harvested algae and EVA materials and priced at $75 a pair. Fans took it as an encouraging sign that despite the talk of divorce, Kim was showing support for her husband's brand. One of her followers asked "Am I the only one wondering if they’re back together bc of the yeezy’s??" While another, an apparent supporter of her husband wrote: "Give my boy all his sneakers back!!!" The picture seems to be a response to Kanye removing his shoe collection from the house to avoid having Kim getting access to them.
Kim is reportedly on a girls-only trip to Turks and Caicos with her family to give Kanye all the space and time he needs to remove what he wants from the house. “They both felt it would be less dramatic without both of them in the house,” said the source who spoke to Page Six. Kanye was last seen in public when he came to Los Angeles at the Van Nuys Airport via private jet in January.
Kim had earlier also posted an Instagram story on February 1 of a new showroom in her home for her SKIMS line. At the time, fans had speculated that she had taken over Kanye’s closet that was once shown in an episode of “My Next Guest with David Letterman” in 2019.
According to current rumors circulating about the couple, the stage is set for a divorce and they’re currently in settlement talks. The couple stopped their marriage counseling in January. Several sources close to Kim say she is comfortable with the idea of raising their four children — daughters North, 7, and Chicago, 3, and sons Saint, 5, and Psalm, who turns 2 in May — on her own. A source also told ET online that while Kim is prepared to divorce Kanye, she isn't rushing through the process and wants what's best for the family.
