Kanye West is at New York Fashion Week today and naturally, he’s hosting a big event for his line of sweatshirts stolen from church donation boxes.
Following reports that Kanye and Kim Kardashian spent Valentine’s Day apart due to some sort of disagreement, the couple has reportedly made a point of sticking close to one another at events in order to send a message that all is well in Kimye Land.
Reports about the cause of their spat vary, but most accounts concur that it had something to do with this evening’s big Yeezus show.
The most popular explanation seems to be that Kim feels Kanye isn’t emotionally stable enough for such a major undertaking.
Back in November, West was hospitalized following a psychiatric breakdown, and he’s reportedly still undergoing daily treatment.
His wife is reportedly (and understandably) concerned that if the show doesn’t go well, it could send the rapper into a serious downward spiral.
Now, it seems her worst fears are coming to life, as Kanye is reportedly losing control of his emotions in the tense final hours before his highly-anticipated event.
“Kanye has been acting like a madman because he does not seem to think he is entirely prepared for this show,” a source close to the situation tells Radar Online.
Kim, who was reportedly not initially planning to spend the entire week in New York, has been doing damage control to prevent another public meltdown.
“She went there to make sure that it all goes smoothly, but she is in over her head and her family is convinced that this is going to be a total bomb,” says the insider.
The source claims that Kim is at the end of her wits, and has even taken to suggesting to Kanye that perhaps he should stick to music:
“Kim told Kanye that if this is a total failure that he just really needs to stop doing fashion and focus on something else,” says the insider.
As with last year’s Yeezy Season 3 show, most of the Kardashian clan will reportedly be in attendance – but not necessarily by choice:
“They are going to Kanye’s show because they have to, not because they want to,” the source says.
It will reportedly only be a partial crew this time, as “not all of the family agreed to go.”
No word on whether or not Kanye is once again going to desperate measures to fill all the seats, but we get the feeling he should have an easier time drumming up interest this year.
After all, who doesn’t want a frontrow seat for a potential trainwreck?
