9 crazy rules that Kanye West makes Kim Kardashian follow
It can't be said that the Kardashian-Jenner family have great taste in men. Earlier this month, when Khloé Kardashian was just days away from giving birth to her first child, news broke that her boyfriend and baby daddy, Tristan Thompson, had been cheating on her.
But, of course, America's most famous family have quite the history of philandering or dating otherwise unsuitable beaus. Kim Kardashian cited physical and emotional abuse when divorcing her first husband, Damon Thomas, and Kourtney Kardashian was on-and-off with Scott Disick for the better half of a decade - a relationship which was plagued by rumours of alcohol abuse and infidelity on Disick's part.
With this in mind, Kim's now-husband Kanye West seems like a veritable godsend in this modern fairy tale. However, given his many eccentricities and larger-than-life ego, it can't be said that the Yeezus singer is your average Prince Charming. Certainly, it appears that Kanye makes Kim follow several rules, which range from bizarre to downright crazy...
1. Kim has to pay attention to him at all times
When Kanye is on stage performing, Kim is prohibited from ever letting her eyes wander from the stage. This is purportedly because there was one regrettable occasion when the reality television star had the audacity to start texting during one of Kanye's sets, and of course, he was not impressed.
2. No phones at the dinner table
When Kim and Kanye manage to fit date-night into their hectic schedules, the pop-star operates a strict no phones policy. He wants Kim to be in the moment, and not scrolling through her various social media platforms. No flat-lays for you, Kim!
3. The house must be kept at optimal "hoodie" temperature
While Kanye's sartorial stylings can be rather eclectic, he often opts for a simple hoodie, no matter the season. Certainly, whilst most Americans are lounging in shorts and t-shirts during the summer months, the 40-year-old can be found in his trusty pullover. As such, the temperature in the home needs to be kept super cool to ensure he stays temperate.
4. His clothing should always be washed separately
While we doubt that Kim is acquainted with soap suds and detergent, it's up to her to ensure that there's no cross-contamination when it comes to Kanye's clothes. One can only assume that a hoodie was once accidentally dyed...
5. Kim's social circle has to get Kanye's stamp of approval
According to an inside source, Kanye wasn't happy to be surrounded by some of Kim's friends at her baby shower for Saint. "He probably wasn’t in the mood to be around all Kim’s friends, all the ‘quote on quote’ celebrities, and all those women," the source stated. So aside from her large family, everyone is vetted by the Bound 2 singer.
6. Kim must be makeup-free at home
While Kim doesn't like to stray too far from her glam squads, her husband purportedly prefers her to be makeup-free at home. Though it's nice that Kanye appreciates her natural beauty, we can't imagine that Kim enjoys being without her contouring kit.
7. No communication with exes
It appears that the Yeezus singer is a little insecure when it comes to Kim's former flames. He operates a strict rule wherein Kim can't reach out to Ray-J, Kris Humphries or Damon Thomas.
8. He's in charge of keeping Kim's aesthetic "cheese free"
While Kanye hasn't defined what exactly it is to be "cheese free", we can assume that he's responsible for the style evolution that Kim has gone through in recent years.
9. She can't speak to his security team
Kanye ordered his security team to not talk to Kim, so this must mean that she can't converse with them either. While it's only cursory to say "hello" or "good morning", it appears that Kanye's security team are off-limits to Kim for some bizarre reason.
Well, there you have it. While fame may have brought Kim Kardashian great fortune and influence, it hasn't liberated her from her husband's watchful eye...
