Why I think Kanye is trying to get back Kim

One of the most well-known couples in the entertainment industry, until they divorced, Kim and Kanye were together for six years. In February of 2021, they filed for divorce and are now co-parents to their four kids. However, I believe he is trying to get her back by calling her name at his concert with Drake, the Thanksgiving Video, and the fact that he moved in right next to her.

The reason they divorced is quite simple, during the last episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kim said that she felt lonely and that she and Kanye had little in common. “Like, I do—obviously my kids and everything—but am I just going to sit here and think, Okay, my kids fulfill me and I’m good?” I can agree with the feeling. You want to feel loved in a relationship, and it must’ve been hard having to hide these emotions from public view until now. Another reason seems to be the way Kim disapproves of Kanye’s political beliefs; during a quite recent podcast interview, she said, “I didn’t want him to wear the red hat. I’m not really a rule-breaker, so my personality would be like, ‘OK, you guys don’t like the red hat? I’ll take it off.’” So, you can see how that could be a factor in the divorce. Yet, Kanye is having some allegations about how he’s wanting Kim back.

For example, the first incident was on Thanksgiving of last year, where he had a quite lengthy video of his prayers on that day. He proceeded to say, “All I think about every day is how I get my family back together and how I heal the pain that I’ve caused…I take accountability for my actions.” It seems like he’s asking for forgiveness from Kim and he wants to get back together with her. Especially with the way he says that he healed the pain that he caused when the main part of the divorce was his actions.

The second incident was on December 9th of last year, when he realized that Kim was at one of Drake’s concerts that he was featured in. As he performed “Runaway” he changed the lyrics to his song which truly shocked the crowd. It said, “I need you to run right back to me. More specifically, Kimberly.” You can see how he doesn’t want to divorce but still agreed to it, and how he could be fighting for their ex-marriage in the future.

The final incident was when he moved in near Kim to ‘have the kids over as much as possible.’ He paid a whopping 4.5 million dollars, so technically he paid around 400,000 dollars more than it was listed for ($4,079,000). He could easily be that dedicated to Kim to pay that extra money as it’s a lot extra for a house that was listed much lower.

I went to interview some students about their opinions on this situation, the answers are below.

What’s your opinion on Kanye West’s situation with Kim?

“I think he isn’t trying to get back with her because he wants to see his kids more. I mean, who doesn’t want to see their kids? And about the concert, the main reason why she was there was to probably go see Drake, yet didn’t know that Kanye was going to perform since you don’t know all the songs they do at concerts.” – Mia Pasion (9th Grade)

“I think that Kanye is trying to get back together with Kim because he moved across the street from her, and I don’t think that’s necessary since they [were] in the process of a divorce. He could’ve just seen the children on his own time, and I think that Kanye is using Julia Fox to make [Kim] jealous or just as a rebound.” – Anonymous

Do you think it should’ve been handled privately? Why or why not?

“In a real matter of this, I think it should’ve been held privately because the way that Kanye expressed wanting her back didn’t need to be handled in that kind of way. If he would’ve talked to her privately I think things would’ve gone a lot different and she [would have] understood more. I [still] understand their point of view as they are famous people and they handle things differently, so I could understand where he’s coming from. But, it should still be held privately because this is a private matter that couples sometimes go through.” – Mia Pasion

“I think that it shouldn’t be dealt with privately because people want entertainment, and I think he was trying to do it to show how much he loves her and get publicity out of it. The way Kanye made his relationship with Julia Fox so the public could make Kim jealous, and see her as a rebound as I said before.” – Anonymous

With all of this, Kanye and Kim have a lot to discuss if Kanye truly wants her back.
