Kanye West has not been photographed with his girlfriend Kim kardashian is several weeks and conflicting reports on the couple's relationship have left many fans wondering what exactly is actually going on.
On December 30 West, 35, appeared to be excited when he announced that Kardashian, 31, was expecting his child. In February the rapper relocated to Paris where he has been living for two months while Kardashian has remained in Los Angeles, he is said to be working on a new album.
While one report claims the pair has actually seen each other more than the public knows, another maintains that the relationship is over.
"Kanye has made at least three trips via private jet from Paris to L.A. (costing about $100k total) so that he can be in attendance for Kim on her [doctor's] checkups," gossip website TMZ.com reported Sunday.
Contrary to TMZ's claim, a report by InTouch Weekly magazine suggests West has barely seen the pregnant reality TV star. The tabloid story appears to support a Yahoo report claiming the pair has spent a total of 18 days together since announcing the pregnancy.
"He insists on staying in Paris but he could write and record anywhere. Kanye has been ignoring Kim's pleas to visit her. He's staying in Paris— Kim has to fly there if she wants to see him," a source reportedly told InTouch.
"She's telling friends that she's miserable in her relationship with Kanye because he's deserted her," a separate source said. "She knows she's probably going to end up as a single mom."
West is rumored to be returning to the US in May for a hosting gig on "Saturday Night Live." Kardashian, who is due to give birth in July, is yet to address the split reports.
