Kanye West Is Ready to Move to Paris with North West, Leaving Kim Kardashian Behind to Focus on Her Image and Career in LA

10:39AM EDT

Kim Kardashian has not exactly had much success when it comes to love. Kanye West is her third husband, and the fact they share a daughter, North West, might be the main thing that prevents her from pulling the plug on their already shaky union. The thing is, for once she is dealing with a man who is as headstrong and determined to do things their way as she is, so their clashes have been epic. According to "Radar Online," the most recent one occurred last week on the night of her birthday bash, and it left Kardashian completely reeling. West loves his life in Paris — do not forget he chose to abandon Kardashian for half her pregnancy in order to spend his time in the City of Lights — and has been dropping hints for a while now about wanting to relocate there full time. Until now, Kardashian has kind of shrugged off the idea because her life, family and career is based in Los Angeles, but finally it seems these two have hit a crossroads.READ MORE

At least, that is what Kardashian is saying in a new interview that accompanies her cover for London's "Evening Standard." While I think most of us have been under the notion that being a Kardashian means you get whatever you want when you want it, she claims to have had to work for everything.READ MORE
