KANYE WEST has devastated his baby mama KIM KARDASHIAN – by doing his best to remain an ocean apart!
The two have been separated for 85 days so far during Kim’s nearly seven-month-pregnancy, with the rapper hunkered down in Paris while Kim spends most of her time in L.A. tending to her family’s reality TV empire.
“Things are incredibly tense between Kim and Kanye, and it doesn’t look like it will get better any time soon,” said an insider.
“As much as he knows that it breaks Kim’s heart, Kanye needs his space. He just won’t put up with the family circus that goes with dating a Kardashian.”
As The ENQUIRER has reported, 35-year-old Kanye has been locked in a bitter feud with Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner. He’s also clashed with Kim, 32, over her desire to involve him with the family’s reality series.
While the parents-to-be recently reunited in New York, the award-winning rap star has mostly been living in France.
“Kanye has told Kim that he needs to be in Paris to get inspiration for the album he’s working on,” said a second source.
“But the real reason he stays there is to put some space between them.
“If Kanye was in the States, he’d have to be at Kim’s side while she makes her reality show appearances, and he refuses to follow her around.”
To make matters worse, mom-to-be Kim has transformed into a preg-zilla.
“Kim is the most high maintenance pregnant woman EVER,” declared the source.
“It’s nonstop drama with her, and Kanye is at his wit’s end.
“She’s been barking orders at him since the minute she found out she was pregnant. She’s constantly complaining about being swollen and nauseated, demanding that he rub her feet and massage her back.
“As far as Kanye is concerned, at this point either he takes this time out in Paris or they break up. But whatever happens between them, he’s promised to be there for their baby.”
