On Aug. 4, Kim Kardashian will pass a milestone: marriage to Kanye West for 73 days — one day longer than her disastrous marriage to Kris Humphries. However, those close to the reality star say that the possibility that her union with the rapper will turn out to be another short-lived debacle is greater than anyone thinks!
Kanye’s frequent absences, control issues and stalled career have placed Kim in an increasingly isolated position, and indications are that she’s already miserable…and turning to food as a way to dull the pain.
Only days after their honeymoon, ‘Ye was already back touring in Europe, leaving his wife alone with baby North. Even when the tour went on a two-week hiatus, he continued to stay away, preferring to work on his upcoming album, and Kim has turned to food for comfort. “Before the wedding, when she was happy and trying to lose weight for the occasion, Kim watched what she ate and worked out,” an insider tells Star. “But now she’s stressed and doing the one thing she hates most…losing control of her diet.”
Part of her weight gain is also due to Kanye’s controlling behavior, which includes choosing Kim’s wardrobe and constantly analyzing her body. “Since she doesn’t eat much around him, she ends up indulging in junk food when they’re apart,” the source reveals.
Now, Kim is telling friends that she’s finally had enough. “She has told Kris [Jenner] that she knows marriage takes work,” the insider explains. “but she’s surprised that the honeymoon didn’t last just a little bit longer.”
