It’s rare for more than a few days to go by without at least one man in the Kardashian-Jenner clan hitting the headlines, and usually it’s for all the wrong reasons. I think I speak for the rest of the world when I say that I felt bad for Khloé when videos of Tristan cheating went viral.
Because of the less than admirable behavior of most of the men in the famous family (yes, I’m looking at you too Scott Disick), Kanye West has become the unlikely hero of chivalry in this very modern fairy tale and, despite his eccentricities, is the most stable partner in the family. Or is he?
While Kanye might treat his wife Kim like a queen, even he has some seriously undesirable qualities. But then again, Kanye was never famed for having a small ego.
According to TheDailyNet, it turns out that he’s quite a controlling partner and makes Kim follow some downright bizarre rules.
1. Kim must pay attention to him at all times
Okay, so this won’t come as a surprise to anyone familiar with Kanye – he’s an egomaniac, after all. He once caught a glimpse of Kim looking at her phone while he was performing. Now she is forced to keep her eyes on him at all times when he’s on stage so she can admire his artistry.
2. Kanye’s clothes must never be mixed with anyone else’s
I don’t know Kim personally, but I think it’s a pretty safe bet that she rarely ever does laundry. However, if she was going to wash any of Kanye’s clothes, she’d be under strict instructions not to wash them with anyone else’s. I guess he’s had a shirt accidentally dyed in the past!
3. No phones at the table
While Kanye might be kooky, this is actually a reasonable rule. Becuase his wife’s life pretty much revolves around her huge social media presence, he’s banned her from using her phone at the table. She’s allowed to take pictures there though, but only after she’s eaten.
4. Kanye must give Kim permission to hang out with her friends
Having friends outside of a relationship is essential for its long-term survival. Horrifyingly, however, Kim can’t just agree to meet her gal pals for a drink or coffee at the drop of the hat, instead, she has to clear everything with Kanye first. He’s worse than my mom was when I was a teenager!
5. No contact with exes
It’s often said that exes are exes for a reason and, while some do become friends, this definitely isn’t a possibility for Kim who has been banned from having any kind of contact with anyone she used to date. I’m sure there’s a lot of people out there who would agree with this one though.
6. The air conditioning can never be on
Apparently, Kim knew that Kanye was the one when she discovered their mutual hatred of air conditioning. So this isn’t so much a rule per say, it’s just something that Kim is never allowed to change her mind about. Kanye must sweat a lot in the house given that he’s always in hoodies!
7. No gender reveals
Most celebrity couples take pride in announcing the sex of their baby before they are born, but that’s not the case for Kim and Kanye. As far as Kanye is concerned, it should stay a surprise, so if the couple decides to have baby number four, Kim won’t get a gender reveal party. Again.
8. Kim can’t take the kids out without Kanye’s permission
Kanye absolutely adores his children, and he wants to be fully informed on everything that’s going on in their lives. It also turns out that he doesn’t trust their mother enough to do anything with them without his permission. Not gonna lie, this is psychopathic behavior as far as I’m concerned.
9. Their kids aren’t allowed on TV
As it stands, you won’t see more than occasional glimpses of Kim and Kanye’s kids on Keeping up with the Kardashians. While this seems like a sensible rule as they are so young, Kanye is unlikely to keep it in place once they become teens and want to taste stardom for themselves.
Kanye might be the most stable partner compared to the poor standards set by the other men in the Kardashian-Jenner clan, but it’s safe to say that he really does impose a lot on Kim’s life. That being said, as long as she’s happy to live by his rules, then I guess it’s none of our business!
