Kim Kardashian's Romance With Kanye West Is Publicity Stunt, Accuse Sources

Kim Kardashian Kanye West

An insider close to Kris Humphries AND a friend of the Kardashian family give HollywoodLife.com evidence why Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s relationship is mostly a ‘showmance!’ Can you believe it?

Kim Kardashian is ready to move on from her failed 72 day marriage to Kris Humphries and will do anything to do it — even exploit a romance with her friend and press-lover, Kanye West, a source close to Kris tells HollywoodLife.com.

“Whether or not they are in a real relationship, it’s a publicity stunt to sell records on his part and more importantly for her, to divert people from talking about her divorce,” the insider says. “If anyone deserves each other, it’s these two. They both love publicity and material things.”

Our source explains Kim and Kanye’s sudden infatuation and public displays of attention at dinner, shopping and when leaving Kanye’s New York City home are “no coincidence they started the same night his new song dropped.”

Indeed, Kanye’s new single, “Theraflu,” talks about his love for the 31-year-old reality star and even disses her soon-to-be ex-husband, threatening to get him kicked off the team!

“I’m convinced they are the ones who have been tipping off the paparazzi to take their photos everywhere they go so that they can get the publicity,” the insider says. “Someone who is calling the paparazzi can’t be as desperate about her divorce as she says she is.”

Interestingly enough, a source close to the Kardashian family also confirms that Kim and Kanye are exploiting their relationship for publicity.

“It’s so calculated and of course, Kim’s mother, Kris, is all behind it,” the insider says. “Look at all the great PR they are getting. I must say they they make a perfect couple. They both love the limelight and can’t get enough attention.”

Adds the source, “This is also a big f**k you to Kris Humphries. I kind of feel sorry for him because Kim is acting like never ever shed a tear for him. I don’t understand why the Kardashians think this is a good move for Kim. But believe me everything that family does calculated.”

Do you think Kim and Kanye are just hooking up for the cameras? Sound off below!

is she getting paid any royalties off that song, i wonder? cuz cannot imagine momager would allow kanye to make money off of a kim reference without getting a cut… in which case, this romance starts making even more sense, cuz kim loves her some money…

I think Kim did this to help promote her image as being so desirable to men. But this time I think it’s going to backfire. I’ve been reading other sites. It’s not so much that Kanye dissed Kris or that he is homely. Um, people are getting fed up with her dating outside of her race. It is weird. Now I guess Kardashian Inc thinks everyone wants to see another fairytale romance. But no, it’s a bit much. She used her first husband for plastic surgery, let Ray J piss on her in a porno, used Reggie Bush’s fame for her first, cute fairytale romance, used Kris for the fairytale wedding. Now here she is with Kanye, and being all nasty about it. Her actions are screaming str8 up ho! She is alienating her white fans and if that’s what it finally takes to get her out of our lives, so be it.

Race? She’s ALWAYS dated black guys. This is nothing new. Yeah Kanye is out of her pretty boy norm, but if people dislike her for that, it’s idiotic. If he makes her happy so be it.

I mean i don’t think anyone is going to argue that they aren’t a much better match than Kim and Kris were. Kris and Kim were too different.

If this is a publicity stunt, who cares. All the people commenting negative comments are also buying into the publicity aspect of it. Good or bad, publicity is publicity and talking about it only makes others more aware.

Very good article. I agree that puppetmaster kris jenner’s stunts like this are a bad move. Adding fuel to the fire that kj started shows stupidity not confidence. It is going to give me no greater pleasure than to see the kardashians in court, scriptless, PR-less, stuntless, basically naked in front of the cameras giving sworn testimony. There is a God.

Most of us had already figured this out. And with the Daily Mail and TMZ pushing daily publicity for the Kardashians, they are still in the news must to the dismay of most of us.

Whatever happened to suing the flour tosser?……exactly nothing, because it was a set up, just like these two dating is a set up.

Kris Jenner is scraping the bottom of the bowl, she has her daughter take public her “friend with benefits” affair! I too amazed that Bruce Jenner has not divorced her! He is the only real “celebrity” in the family

Remember, Kim only does things that will get her her publicity like the hickey on her neck, like her taking a walk of shame, maybe they want us to believe that they are dating or at least screwing its all a set up!!

What will next week bring????

Um kanye has a lot of haters, maybe more than kim and that’s a lot, a lot of haters do affect sales. Many feel he’s been off his game since 2008. He actually does need buzz for new releases.
kim talks about how much she married for love on the today show, kanye’s song referencing her love for Kris, kim spotted coming out kanye’s apartment flashing hickey for paps– all this happens on the same day. What a koweenkydink!

Ok get some facts. Kanye is one of the top album sellers + has many Grammys. He’s a multiplatinum artist who needs no help in that department.

Many do feel he is off his game and he does have a lot of haters, I don’t care about numbers or grammys, if I did I would have not said so. However I feel the scam was a calculated move to bully Humphries. It’s obvious and it was wrong.

Well you’re still wrong. He sells huge numbers. How can people think he’s off his game when he chose not to make music because he wanted to be a fashion designer? His next album is highly anticipated and his song Mercy with no mention of anything Kim related is top ten already. He doesn’t need her to sell records.

To be honest she doesn’t need him either. This is actually a bad move on her part so i don’t buy that it’s PR. If it was really about PR she would’ve stayed single until the divorce was final.

gina- even dead people don’t sell albums without trying. it’s called marketing. kanye may sell albums, but that does not mean the guy won’t stoop to these kinds of levels to boost sales. hate to break the news to you… as many haters as kim has, she also has many blind followers who can expand kanye’s sales and listenership. in any case, who knows what’s going on with these two- i trust him only slightly more than her- but, just saying, the guy does try to sell albums… even successful artists do that.

Of course it’s fake. For him, to promote his new record. Oh, he wants to dis Kris Humphries but he used him to help sell his record. Although probably advised from coming straight out and saying “I hate Kris Humphries” Kim is doing this to let people know how little she thinks of him. I’m not surprised. He was only an actor who she married for ratings. Now that he won’t give her a divorce she’s just stewing. Bed, made, lie. When this came out, I wondered how were they planning to date. He lives in New York and she lives in California. I bet we don’t see those two together anymore for months.

I completely agree. If I recall, everytime that a new season of one of the Kardashian’s shows came out, a crazy stupid pr stunt would happen to make them relevant. They’ve done it plenty of times before, but now people are actually knowing where they step. It’s over for the Kardashians, no one stays famous forever. Just move on, and Kris, please stop pimping your youngest two out. Your hunger for fame and money is disgusting, I don’t know why Bruce hasn’t divorced and taken Kendall and Kylie away from you yet.

Of course it’s a stunt. Not only that, but those pictures of them at FAO Schwartz? Paparazzi on private property? Ha! They had their own people take the photos and then sold them off. Pathetic really. But what can you expect from a pair of idiots?
