Who was Kanye's hit 'Heartless' about? Fans say Kim Kardashian 'divorce album will unleash dangerous energy’
Kanye West had once announced before singing 'Heartless' at a Philadelphia concert, 'To the city of Philly, I want to thank y'all for making the incredible person that this song was made for'
As the Kardashian-West divorce stole the spotlight away from the Wilde-Styles dating rumors, there is something that totally justified stealing the thunder from both: a highly anticipated Kanye divorce album that Twitter users believe might just be the sublime revelation we need in these dire times. Some ten hours ago Page Six insiders spilled that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are pretty much "done" with Kim having hired none other than signature celebrity lawyer Laura Wasser for the settlements. But will their already joint net worth of $1 billion also include revenue from a divorce album since she will be the inspiration?
The news comes after the outlet reported that sources said, “They are keeping it low-key but they are done. Kim has hired Laura Wasser and they are in settlement talks.” The outlet notes Kim hasn't been wearing her wedding ring for a while now, and neither did Kanye spend time with them over Christmas. According to sources, Kim has "grown-up" enough to be "serious about taking the bar exam and becoming a lawyer, she is serious about her prison reform campaign. Meanwhile, Kanye is talking about running for president and saying other crazy s–t, and she’s just had enough of it.”
Sources for Kanye however claim he finds the reality star's extravagant life for TV "unbearable" and “is completely over the entire family … He wants nothing to do with them.” This comes after the Kanye running for president fail happened, and the rapper tweeted, “I been trying to get divorced since Kim met with Meek at the Warldolf [sic] for ‘prison reform,’” alleging cheating affairs with rapper Meek Mill from their November 2018 meeting. Momager Kris Jenner was labeled 'Kris Jong-Un' and the family was accused of trying to enforce psychiatric treatment on him.
“He showed up late and left early, he wouldn’t appear in any of their Instagram shots. All he did was bring over the hologram of her father Robert Kardashian, then got out of there as fast as he could,” the source revealed about the birthday present Kim couldn't stop gushing about on Instagram.
About their elaborate settlement arrangement with multiple properties up for split, the insider added how “this isn’t the first time they’ve been talking about a split, but this time it is way, way more serious.” With Wasser having represented Angelina Jolie, Britney Spears, and Johnny Depp, and with how considerably more public LA divorces are, will Kanye's over the top Italian wedding nuptials and marriage of six years end in another hit like 2008 classic 'Heartless'?
Fans believe not only will that be a thing but "a kanye divorce album will unleash some very dangerous energy on the world," as tweeted one. Others believed "this kanye breakup album boutta hit different." Others were torn over the dilemma of "Hearing the Kanye news but realizing that divorce Album finna be Fire." And some celebrated "What time is it? [...] time for [...] a new Kanye album." Many mocked said fans writing "Kanye fans after realizing that they will be getting another classic heartbreak 808 Kanye album" along with a compilation of funny dance clips, offering a subtle nod to the 2008 legendary '808s & Heartbreak' album from Kanye. While others chided the fans saying "Kanye just lost his wife and will probably lose his kids and all people care about is a break-up album. Down bad fr."

Prepare yourselves for the best album Kanye finna release after this divorce #KanyeWest— eliz (@elizabeth02323) January 6, 2021
Most of them were just busy warning the world "Prepare yourselves for the best album Kanye finna release after this divorce #KanyeWest." And the reason might have something to do with a certain Amber Rose, who has been alleged to be the muse behind the acclaimed '808s & Heartbreak'. In an interview with The Observer from November that year, Kanye had told the publication that the chorus of the track 'Heartless' comes from, "The Shakespearian tragedy. The Shakespearian tragedy. That's what this is - it's a modern-day tragedy. Devastation. Multiple losses in my life."
At the time, some had deduced this was about his 18-month long engagement with designer Alexis Phifer ending, or about the loss of his mother's death. Others on the internet have claimed a concert video as evidence that the song was about Amber Rose, and possibly the album too. The evidence lies in a YouTube video featuring Kanye announcing during a 2011 concert in Philadelphia (Rose's hometown), "To the city of Philly, I want to thank y'all for making the incredible person that this song was made for…". Of course, the relationship wrapped soon after this proclamation, as the two split and as Rose blamed, "Kim [Kardashian] is one of the main reasons why me and Kanye are not together. She's a homewrecker," in a Star magazine interview.
Rose's former publicist Janero Marchand is surprisingly on the other side of the split, as he said: "Amber Rose allowed fame, money, and greed to get in the way of her self respect, dignity, and morals. Kim Kardashian did not break up their relationship, Amber did." He also accused Rose of cheating on Kanye, claiming that the rapper's 'Robocop' video featuring Rose was never released because he had found out about her infidelity. Makes more sense as to why fans would think something equally phenomenal as that album is coming.
