Kanye West Felt Powerless.
(ThyBlackMan.com) I can’t imagine my spouse being robbed at gunpoint and I’m a woman. One could only image the horror of a husband when he gets a call informing him that his wife was robbed at gunpoint. That she was overseas, and men broke into her apartment, held her at gunpoint, and restrained her in the bathroom. This is enough to drive any man to immediate action.
This was Kanye West as he stopped a concert to get to his wife, Kim Kardashian-West, when he learned she was robbed. Granted there are those that don’t believe the news. Some believe she staged her own robbery possibly for the insurance money. However, she is currently sueing a few outlets that taken that spin on this topic. I will admit some of the details are abbot suspect, but I wonder if she would something so heinous.
It was reported that Kanye West felt powerless, and in that moment I really did feel bad for him. “Kanye says that it has been one of the hardest days of his life, that he feels helpless. This is a guy who isn’t used to feeling helpless at all. He’s usually in control. And now he realizes that he could have lost her, and there wasn’t a thing he could do about it.” I am no longer a big fan of Kanye West, but the fear of losing his wife, the mother of his children, is enough to invoke helplessness. Kanye West is putting her needs above his anger by being there for her verses acting on impulse. “He wants to find the men who did this to his wife. But he knows that the best place for him to be right now is with Kim. She needs him now. He won’t leave her.”
In November 2007 Kanye West lost his mother. One could say West blamed himself, and felt helpless. He knows what it means to lose an important woman in his life. While this is not the first marriage for Kim Kardashian-West …it is the first for Kanye. The loss of his mother was so devastating, and the effects were lived out for us to see through his music. The idea that he could lose another woman dear to him is gut wrenching. I acknowledge that this was devastating for Kim Kardashian-West, and I’m glad she was able to make it home safely to her family.
Until more information is released that says otherwise that says otherwise I can’t bring myself to assume fraud. When I thought about it after reading so many headlines I was glad she safe. In thinking my mind did Kanye West’s feeling of powerlessness, and was what didn’t set well with me. That in itself is mental anguish… it’s hard to watch those you love suffer. The silver lining is their children are young, and can’t understand what has transpired. Their innocence was not shattered, and they are safe. There is much that can be speculated, but I’m married and a mother. All I could bring myself to do was say a prayer for their family’s peace and safety.
