If it’s not his music that’s catching our attention, it’s his controversial tweets, award ceremony conduct or political views.

Kanye West is an American rapper and all-around musical genius, record producer, entrepreneur and fashion designer.

Sorry, the recording artist is among the most critically acclaimed of the twenty-first century.

He and Kim Kardashian began dating after many years of just being friends. On 24th May 2014 they tied the knot in Florence, Italy.

They have three children together and he gets on with her family like a house on fire.

So, Why is Kanye Never on Keeping Up with the Kardashians?


Kanye’s Probably Focusing On Being An Artist

Believe it or not, Kanye could have his own things to do other than appear on his wife’s reality TV show.

Among writing songs, recording albums, touring and doing the odd interview.

Yeezy may find it hard to squeeze in KUWTK filming. Apparently, it’s hard to even get him for a TV interview.

Maybe, Fashion Comes First For Kanye

Kanye is the owner of the Yeezy clothing brand.

He collaborated with Adidas to create the Adidas Yeezy Boost.


The Adidas Yeezy 750 Boost “Light Brown” was the first sneaker to release from this collaboration on 23rd February 2005.

Wife, Kim Kardashian can often be seen modelling Yeezy wear.

Just about spot them there?

Ye’s Views Can Get Pretty Controversial

Kayne’s got himself involved in a fair number of controversies in the last year alone.

He endorsed Donald Trump in April with a picture of him wearing a ‘Make America Great Again’ cap.



He was also called out for suggesting that African-American slavery was a “choice” in May 2018.

In recent months Kanye has openly spoken about his mental health, saying that he has been diagnosed at 40-years-old with a mental condition.

He said in an interview with Big Boy TV:

That’s why God put that on me at 40. I’ve never been diagnosed and I was like 39 years old.”

Kayne also stated that the backlash he received after a scene from KUWTK (where he says to Kim to throw out all her old clothes in order to revamp her wardrobe to get on the ‘best-dressed’ list) made him not want to return to the show.

KUWTK Kanye and Kim closet revamp

You’d expect after many years of being in the spotlight he’d be able to take the flack but the show does get pretty personal.

Kanye also admitted this year that he got hooked on Opioids after undergoing liposuction surgery.

Perhaps the criticism he gets is enough without the added stresses of having your life aired to the masses.

Remember; it ain’t easy being Yeezy.
