Kanye West and his wife, Bianca Censori, are reportedly hitting the pause button on their relationship following a supposed intervention by Censori’s friends. The couple, who exchanged vows in December 2022, has apparently been taking some time apart since mid-October, as per reports from the US Sun.
According to an insider, Censori’s family has never been fond of Kanye West, and those close to her have raised questions about her decision to marry him. The source describes West as a challenging person to be around and work with, and Censori has demonstrated immense patience in dealing with him. Despite the rapper’s increased happiness and focus when she’s around, the relationship appears to have taken its toll on her due to various opinions being thrown into the mix.
While West is currently immersed in creating new music with Ty Dollar $ign at a luxury complex-turned-recording studio in Saudi Arabia, he doesn’t seem overly concerned about the state of his marriage. The source suggests that Censori may return to him for the album launch, given her fondness for the lifestyle, but it’s clear that her family and friends would rather she didn’t.
The source also highlights West’s primary concern at the moment, which is finding distribution for his music after losing connections due to controversial remarks he made last year.
As of now, representatives for Kanye West and Bianca Censori have not responded to requests for comment.
Earlier this month, West traveled to the Middle East, while 28-year-old Censori, who works as a fashion company architect, visited friends in her native Australia, where her family resides. Reports suggest that her inner circle has grown increasingly concerned about her and the challenges she faces due to the “blockades” West has imposed around her. It is alleged that West has a set of rules for Censori, which includes dictating her speech, clothing choices, diet, and exercise regimen, despite his own reluctance to work out.
Initially, Censori reportedly showed little interest in discussing or heeding anyone’s concerns for her wellbeing. However, recent developments suggest that her friends have managed to convey their worries to her, and she may be starting to see her marriage from an outside perspective, including her awareness of West’s controlling tendencies.
