What Kim and Kanye's 'Donda' Wedding Moment Really Meant

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West fueled rumors after they were spotted holding hands leaving Kanye's 'Donda' listening party in Chicago. Could this mean they are back together?


Just months after Kim Kardashian and Kanye West filed for a divorce, everyone was astonished when Kim appeared in a Balenciaga couture wedding dress during West's Donda listening event.

Before Kanye joined Kim on stage, he had literally set himself on fire inside a recreation of his childhood home and had the fire put out again. 

Some fans genuinely theorized that this moment in the new Donda experience is a sign that the couple is “back together” in the traditional sense, with others joking that the moment felt like witnessing a remarriage. A new report from TMZ, however, appears to clarify that the late Thursday night reunion was simply a show of support woven into a larger intended narrative.

Kim and Kanye have a friendly relationship,” the source said. “It's always been important to Kim to have a good relationship with Kanye. They are not getting back together though. She accepted his lunch invitation earlier this week because they are at the point now when they can hang out. There are no hard feelings.”

According to Page Six's music insiders, the drive to beat Drake is what inspired the fake wedding ceremony, to begin with. Sources told the outlet that it was a grand piece of "performance art" meant to help him beat Drake on the sales charts.

As for Kim, her motivation for participating in the stunt was pretty straightforward: to support the father of her children. 

"They weren’t talking for months after she filed for divorce, but they began talking again earlier this summer for the sake of their kids," the Page Six source added. "Kim is a nice person–while she and Kanye are not back together–she’s happy to support him in his work and his art, she wants a good relationship with him for the sake of their children." 

Even if Kimye aren't reconciling in a romantic sense, the fact that they've gotten to a point where they can support each other and put on a united front as a family is undeniably great. 

West's mother was an English professor at Chicago State University who died at 58 in 2007 after complications from cosmetic surgery.

The album named after her also features contributions from The Weeknd and Travis Scott, plus a sample from Lauryn Hill.

Donda West's death had a devastating impact on her Grammy-winning son, who also named a creative content company after her.
