Kanye West cheated on Kim Kardashian after she welcomed their first two kids — and it’s the inspiration for his new song “Hurricane.” Multiple sources confirmed the meaning behind the telling lyrics in the track off “Donda,” West’s latest album that was released with plenty of fanfare and controversy.
“The song is in a way his testimony of everything he did wrong and taking accountability for their marriage breakdown,” one insider shared. In the song, West raps, “Here I go actin’ too rich / Here I go with a new chick / And I know what the truth is / Still playin’ after two kids / It’s a lot to digest when your life always movin’.”
Our source confirmed the aforementioned “new chick” is not West’s brief fling Irina Shayk despite rumors swirling online. “If you look closer to the lyrics, he is referring to his infidelity during his marriage with Kim, even after two kids,” the insider continued.
The song also alludes to West, 44, never going home to the now-estranged couple’s multimillion-dollar mansion and struggling with alcohol abuse.
“Architectural Digest, but I needed home improvement / Sixty-million-dollar home, never went home to it,” he raps of his struggling marriage. “Genius has gone clueless, it’s a whole lot to risk / Alcohol anonymous, who’s the busiest loser?”
Despite the seemingly admitted infidelity, we’re told it wasn’t the straw that broke the camel’s back for Kardashian, as she went on to have two more kids with West before ending their marriage.
While West’s bizarre presidential run and Twitter tirades took a toll on their union, his infidelity and struggles with alcohol also strained the relationship.
Page Six broke the news in early January that Kardashian, 40, was ending her marriage to the “All of the Lights” rapper. The former “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star officially filed for divorce in February.
Despite the divorce, the KKW Beauty founder has been publicly supportive of West since the “Donda” promo tour kicked off — even if she is sometimes listening on mute.
