How Kim Kardashian Subtly Supported Kanye West During Her Holiday Weekend

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian speak on Keeping Up with the Kardashians

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have been making headlines for years now, and that only increased when it was reported that Kardashian had formally filed for divorce. Since then, there have been numerous reports alleging how both are handling the situation and what could lie ahead for the both of them. One thing that has become clear is that the two are pretty much keeping their distance from each other at the moment. Yet that didn’t stop Kim Kardashian from subtly showing a bit of support for her soon-to-be-ex-husband over the holiday weekend.

Kim Kardashian celebrated the Easter holiday by posting a few photos of herself in a bright yellow ensemble. The images also showed the reality TV star sporting a pair of Kanye West’s Yeezy brand slides, which actually haven’t even hit the market yet. You can check them out in Kardashian’s Instagram post down below:

Given the state of their relationship, it may be surprising to some that Kim Kardashian would provide promotion for Kanye West’s brand. But throughout the divorce proceedings, the two seem to be keeping things professional, and this simply appears to be an extension of that. And on a more basic level, Kardashian may just simply love those shoes.

Kanye West himself has been absent from Kim Kardashian’s social media accounts for a while now. Some of the last photos to feature West were posted last fall and showed the two spending time with their kids. Despite the sweet photos, speculation continued to surround their relationship until trades began to report that the two were indeed going their separate ways.

It’s fair to say that during this time, both Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are experiencing new realities as they prepare to end their marriage. Aside from the legal proceedings, the two are also working to co-parent their four children and have found a (slightly awkward) way to do so to ensure that they don’t have direct contact with each other. Still, it’s been reported that Kardashian is mostly fine with West spending time with the kids.

Amid the changes, Kim Kardashian seems to be finding comfort through her downtime. Sources allege that while she’s still figuring out her single life, she’s using this time to catch up with friends, which has been a comfort after this past year. She’s also been spending plenty of time with her kids, as she and her little ones even recently enjoyed a Spring Break vacation.

Kim Kardashian’s choice of footwear is unexpected, but you can’t blame her for simply choosing shoes that she loves. And even though it doesn’t signal any kind of potential reconciliation for her and West, it does, at the very least, represent a sign of respect between the two.
