So yesterday UsWeekly made a pretty bold claim that Kim Kardashian wants to divorce Kanye West. While the rest of us predictably and understandably freaked out, Vanity Fair went and
ruined our fun did the responsible journalistic thing and actually checked in with one of Kim’s real friends. They asked Jonathan Cheban if the divorce rumors are true, and he said they’re a big fat lie. Guess we (especially Kanye) can hold onto our sanity for a little while longer.
In case you’re interested, Jon’s exact words were: “I just FaceTimed with Kim and Kanye and everyone’s talking about some divorce rumors and I was laughing because I didn’t hear that all day and I guess everybody else apparently here did and it’s so funny to me because it’s so not true.” He unnecessarily elaborated, “They’re in good spirits. I don’t want to talk much about them because it’s not my business but I do have to say that the divorcing is kind of hysterical, that I will mention, because I just spoke to both of them on FaceTime literally before I was coming here and when I heard that I literally burst out laughing.”
Aside from the fact that he probably just won some worldwide competition for the longest run-on sentences with the above statements, it seems like he’s overcompensating a little. Like tell me, did you FaceTime them, Jon? Say FaceTime again.
Serious question, though: How do tabloids get their sources? Like, do they just pick one random intern per day, have them make up an outrageous lie, and deem them their “anonymous source”? Is there like, a rotation? Do they get prizes for whoever can come up with the most outlandish story?
Anyway, it seems like Kim and Kanye aren’t divorcing, for now. Either way, we’ve come a long way since “Bound 2.”
