Kim shared a glimpse into the preparations, showing her dark hair tied back in plaits while her brows were covered in bleach.

“Can you guess what the set vibes are today?” she asked fans on her Instagram Stories.

“So it’s really cute, guys. Bleached brows. I’m into it. I can’t wait to show you guys the final look.”

The reality star then showed off the finished result, pouting at the camera as she displayed her blonde coiffed waves, almost non-existent brows, smoky eyeshadow and heavy contour.

Kim didn’t stay blonde for long though, sharing a selfie not long after the shoot where her hair and brows were back to dark.

“I’m back to dark already, don’t worry,” the mother-of-four reassured fans.

Kim’s edgy shoot comes just one day after her estranged husband Kanye West was spotted still wearing his wedding ring.

The Yeezy mogul, 43, flashed his wedding band on his left hand while listening to DJ Khaled’s new album at the producer’s home.

Kanye was previously seen wearing the ring in February while out in Los Angeles.

Kim filed for divorce in February after six years of marriage and months of speculation that the relationship had broken down.

The exes have four children together – North, seven, Saint, five, Chicago, three and Psalm, one.

According to TMZ, Kanye filed for both joint legal and physical custody of their four children.

The pair has decided to co-parent amicably, despite Kanye spending the majority of his time on his Wyoming compound, a thousand miles away from Kim’s LA home.

The celebrity couple has agreed they will split their $ 2billion fortune evenly, which The Sun exclusively reported after the divorce announcement was made.

Due to his music empire and clothing ventures, Kanye is technically the richer of the two, with a staggering $ 1.3billion fortune.

Kim has been linked to a number of men since they officially separated, including CNN reporter Van Jones.

The KUWTK star and Van, who is best known in the UK for crying on television when Joe Biden won the US election, have known each other for years.

The friends worked together on criminal justice reform, helping to free Alice Johnson from jail in 2018 after she was jailed for life for a first-time drug offense.

The SKIMS founder has also been linked to Colombian singer Maluma after they were spotted at a Miami party and rapper Drake.

Eve, Nas & Kanye West’s Sunday Service Choir Pay Tribute To DMX At Brooklyn Memorial — Watch

The hip hop community gathered in Brooklyn, New York to pay tribute to the late DMX at his memorial service. Kanye West’s Sunday Service Choir also performed.

Many of DMX‘s friends came to pay tribute to the late rapper at his memorial in Brooklyn, New York on Saturday, April 24. Among those who spoke were rappers Eve — the “First Lady of the Ruff Ryders” — and past collaborator Nas. Standing with Alicia Keys‘ husband Swizz Beatz, Eve remembered her longtime friend. “I am seriously the luckiest, luckiest woman in the world to have been adopted by the Ruff Ryders, but to have known DMX the way that I knew him as a man, a father, a friend,” she said.

“This is so hard y’all. What I pray, what I hope, I pray to God, I pray to our angels, our ancestors, that his journey was smooth. I know that he will rest in power. Rest in love, but most of all he feel rest in peace,” she added. Kanye West‘s Sunday Service Choir performed, kicking off the service which was attended by his 15 children, who also gave touching eulogies just weeks after their father’s unexpected death at 50.

Nas described his Belly co-star DMX as a “hip-hop icon” during his speech. “It’s an honor to be here tonight but at the same time, it’s a sad day. It’s a glorious day. I just want to say I’m honored to be here,” he said to the crowd, wearing a green camo outfit with a hat.

The April 24 memorial was held in DMX’s native New York City at the Barclay’s Center. The touching service, which was also streamed live on YouTube, came just a few weeks after the visionary musician died at the age of 50 following a heart attack.

DMX tragically passed away on April 9 at the age of 50. He suffering a heart attack one week prior, and sadly never recovered. “We are deeply saddened to announce today that our loved one, DMX, birth name of Earl Simmons, passed away at White Plains Hospital with his family by his side after being placed on life support for the past few days,” a rep for the musician said in a statement to PEOPLE. “Earl was a warrior who fought till the very end. He loved his family with all of his heart and we cherish the times we spent with him.”

Stars like T.I., actually named DMX as one of his 50 greatest rappers of all time on The Brew Podcast, quickly took to social media to share loving messages about the musician. “Rest In Peace to a cultural icon. There are no words that can mend the loss the hip-hop community felt today #RIPDMX,” he wrote, including the white dove emoji, a symbol of peace. Our thoughts are with DMX’s friends, family and fans.

Chrissy Teigen Reveals How Kim Kardashian’s Really Doing After Kanye West Split: She ‘Gave Her All’

Chrissy Teigen Reveals How Kim Kardashian’s Really Doing After Kanye West Split: She ‘Gave Her All’

Chrissy Teigen says that her pal Kim Kardashian really ‘tried her best’ when it came to making her marriage to Kanye West work before finally filing for divorce.

Kim Kardashian, 40, put up with a lot from husband Kanye West, 43, in their final year of marriage. From his ill-fated 2020 “presidential run,” spending so much time away from his wife and their four kids on his ranch in Wyoming, to his outbursts on social media claiming he wanted to divorce Kim, the 40-year-old reality star never said a bad word about him. The SKIMS founder’s pal Chrissy Teigen, 35, is confirming that Kim “gave her all” to make their marriage work, saying that she “tried her best” at her union with the rapper. Ultimately, Kim filed for divorce from Kanye on Feb. 19, 2021.

The Cravings cookbook author appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Tues. Apr. 20, and what quite honest when a fan asked, “What is the status of John’s relationship with Kanye right now and have they been in touch since the news of the divorce with Kim broke? And how is Kim doing?” Chrissy’s husband, singer and musician John Legend, 42, had worked creatively in the past and was formerly friends with Kanye. The pair had a falling out in 2018 over Kanye’s support of Donald Trump‘s presidency. The EGOT winner also shaded people as “reckless” if they planned to actually vote for Ye in his 2020 presidential bid.

“I will say I have definitely been in touch with Kim more than John has been in touch with Kanye. If anyone knows Kanye, it’s that he is that he goes off the grid. It’s hard to ever contact Kanye,” Chrissy began part one of the fan’s question. “But Kim is doing okay. I know Kim gave her all for everything and it’s honestly a shame it didn’t work out. Because I saw them being a forever relationship. I really did. But I know she tried her best,” the purple robe-clad former model continued.

Kim and Kanye have four young children together — North, 7, Saint, 5, Chicago, 3, and 23-month-old Psalm — and she worked so hard to keep up the marriage for the sake of their family. But with Kanye spending so much time away in Wyoming, along with his ongoing battle with bipolar disorder where he refused to take his medication, the two ultimately drifted apart.

Kim has been focused on raising their children, along with building her business empire including SKIMS solutionwear and KKW Beauty. Meanwhile, Kanye has vacillated between his devotion to building his Sunday Services and commitment to God, his Yeezy clothing and footwear line and his promises to deliver a new album, which tends to end up beset by delays. But at the end of the day, both are now officially billionaires in 2021 thanks to their business savvy.

Chrissy’s husband John explained his complicated relationship with Kanye in a May 2020 interview with the UK newspaper The Sunday Times. “I’m not trying to disown Kanye because I still love him and love everything we’ve done together creatively. But we were never the closest of friends,” he explained.

When asked if Kanye’s support of Trump increased the distance between them, John didn’t solely blame his and Ye’s rift on the president. “I just think we’re doing our own thing. He’s up in Wyoming. I’m here in LA. We’ve both got growing families, and I no longer have a formal business relationship with him as an artist, so I think it’s just part of the natural cycle of life.”

Kanye West Wanted To End Marriage to Kim Kardashian A Year Ago – Report

Kanye West Wanted To End Marriage to Kim Kardashian A Year Ago – Report

Though Kim Kardashian filed the papers, Kanye Wrest reportedly wanted to end their marriage first after he figured they ‘had nothing in common except the kids.’

Kanye West might have finally “accepted” that his marriage with Kim Kardashian is over. Still, one thing Kanye, 43, reportedly can’t accept is the narrative that Kim, 40, was the one who wanted out first. Kanye is “super annoyed that the story is being constantly presented as her divorcing him,” according to Page Six. The publication claims that their sources say Kanye wanted to bail on his marriage back in 2020, adding, “Actually it was him saying for a year that they have nothing in common except the kids and he wanted out. [Kim] pulled all the stops to try to save the marriage.” Kanye supposedly let Kim “file first in order to give her dignity.” HollywoodLife has reached out to Kanye’s camp for comment and will update this post when more information becomes available.

This report might be a case of Kanye being a “sore loser,” but keep in mind what Kanye claimed during his July 2020 tweetstorm. In the same tweet in which he claimed Kim’s family “tried to fly in [to Wyoming] with 2 doctors to 51/50 [detain Kanye in a 72-hour psychiatric hospitalization] me,” he also claimed he wanted to end his marriage in 2018. “I been trying to get divorced since Kim met with Meek [Mill] at the Warldolf (sic) for ‘prison reform,’” Kanye tweeted. The accusing message has since been deleted, but it may lend credence to the idea that Ye was the one who wanted out first.

Kim filed the papers in Feb. 2021, seemingly beginning the end of her seven-year marriage to Kanye. In the documents, Kim cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split and requested joint custody (both legal and physical) of their four children —  North, 7, Saint, 5, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 1.  The filing came after reports that their marriage was on the rocks and that they had been living separately – Kim in the home in Los Angeles, Kanye on his ranch in Wyoming – for months.

At first, Kanye didn’t believe that Kim was serious with the divorce and that things would smooth over and return to normal. However, now that it’s clear that Kim wants out, Ye has come to terms that his marriage is over. “He’s finally accepted it,” a source told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY, right after Kanye got his own legal team together and filed paperwork asking for joint custody. “Instead of extending the heartbreak, it is easier to start getting things done for the benefit of the whole family,” a second source told HollywoodLife. “His lawyers are fully aware of the next steps and will be dealing with all that heavy lifting.”

Kim Kardashian Officially Becomes A Billionaire Like Kanye West: What Put Her Over The Top

Kim Kardashian Officially Becomes A Billionaire Like Kanye West: What Put Her Over The Top

Sorry, Kylie Jenner, but it looks like Kim Kardashian is the richest KarJenner sister because the KKW Beauty boss is now a billionaire.

The initials “KKW” now stand for money because Kim Kardashian[1] is officially worth an estimated $ 1 billion, according to Forbes[2]. Kim, 40, finally made it to the magazine’s World’s Billionaires List[3], a decade after being first mentioned in the financial magazine’s pages. So, what finally helped the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star enter this exclusive club? Credit her two booming businesses. According to Forbes, Kim’s wealth rose from $ 780 million in October to $ 1 billion thanks to KKW Beauty and SKIMS, as well as “cash from reality television and endorsement deals, and a number of smaller investments.”

Kim got a huge payday when she sold 20% of KKW Beauty to cosmetics conglomerate Coty for $ 200 million last year. While this deal would value the company at $ 1 billion, Forbes estimates that figure “is a little bloated” due to Coty’s history of overpaying. Still, the magazine estimates that Kim’s remaining stake in KKW is worth about $ 500 million. Kim also owns a majority stake in SKIMS, but the company “hasn’t disclosed its revenues.” However, Forbes estimates that the company is valued at “north of $ 500 million,” which would make Kim’s state “worth a conservative $ 225 million.” Add in all the endorsement deals, investments, and real estate purchases, and Kim’s estimated worth is more than a billion dollars.

Kim’s estranged (and seemingly future ex[4])husband, Kanye West[5], also appeared on Forbes’s World Billionaire List. The 43-year-old rapper is worth an estimated $ 1.8 billion, according to Forbes – who, earlier in the year, disputed[6] the multiple reports that claimed Kanye is the “richest Black person in America” and is worth $ 6.6 billion[7]. Bloomberg reported that Ye’s Yeezy sneaker brand – as well as Yeezy Gap, which Forbes notes “has yet to sell one stitch of clothing” – has a combined value of $ 4.7 billion, and Kanye has “an additional $ 1.7 billion in assets.” Forbes claims their competitor’s assumption was on “projected future earnings,” meaning Kanye could be worth $ 6.6 billion someday.

At the moment, Kanye will have to be happy with his estimated $ 1.8 billion (up from $ 1.3 billion last May.) This wealth putting him at an 86-way-tie at Rank No. 1750 on the World’s Billionaire List (proving that there are way too many billionaires.) Kim Kardashian, with just (just!) one billion, comes in at No. 2674.

Kim is now the richest sister in the KarJenner empire. There was a time when Forbes claimed that Kylie Jenner[8], 23, was the “world’s youngest self-made billionaire[9].” The publication first dubbed her a billionaire[10] in 2019 and again the following year, but a late-April 2020 report accused Kylie and her team of lying about her business to make her look richer than she is. The accusations that the Jenners, and/or their accountants, falsified tax returns and then lied about their 2016 revenues for the last four years, are absolutely false,” Kylie and Kris Jenner[11] said in a statement, and Kylie clapped back on Twitter[12]. “All I see are a number of inaccurate statements and unproven assumptions, lol. I’ve never asked for any title or tried to lie my way there EVER. period.” Currently, Forbes estimates Kylie’s net worth at $ 900 million.
