The Rollercoaster Journey Of Kim Kardashian And Kanye West’s Relationship

By Divya G

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West stayed in contact after they initially met via Brandy in early 2000. Kim says she had contact with Kanye before her infamous marriage to a basketball player. Kim and Kanye made their relationship known in early 2012.

In December 2012, it was confirmed that the couple was pregnant with their first child, North, whom they welcomed in June 2013. In October 2013, Kanye planned a proposal for Kim at a stadium! The couple finally tied the knot at the Forte di Belvedere in Italy in May 2014.

One of the most notable and scary events for the couple was when Kim flew to France in October of 2016 to attend the Paris Fashion week, and she was robbed at gunpoint. The men dressed up as policemen and locked her in the bathroom before leaving.

In November 2016, the rapper was hospitalized due to all the stress caused by his profession, the Paris events involving his wife, and the fact that his mother’s death anniversary was approaching. On top of that, Kanye made the headlines with his support for a controversial presidential candidate. West, on his 2018 album, informed the public that he has bipolar disorder. 

The couple was always appreciating and supporting each other for their successes. However, their fire did not last long enough. Kim Kardashian filed for divorce in early 2021 and, as of lately, both Kim and Kanye have been co-parenting, though things haven’t been exactly peaceful between them.
