Reality star Kim Kardashian is seeking outside help amid the growing controversy concerning her ex-husband, Kanye West, now known as Ye. The “SKIMS” founder filed for divorce from the rapper in late 2021 and was declared legally single in March this year.
Ye faced major backlash in the past few weeks after he debuted “White Lives Matter” emblazoned attire and made anti-Semitic comments on his social media. As a result, the rapper is currently banned from both Instagram and Twitter and has now been dropped by major brands like Balenciaga, Vogue, GAP, and his most prominent partner, Adidas.
Over the past few days, family and friends of Ye have aired their worries over the rapper’s recent anti-semitic behavior, with many condemning him for it. Kardashian, who recently called out her ex-husband’s “hate speech,” was recently photographed trying to seek help from a spiritual healer.

Kim Kardashian Spotted Visiting A Spiritual Healer
On Tuesday, Kardashian was spotted trying to look inconspicuous while paying a visit to a spiritual healer in Beverly Hills. Page Six revealed that the business mogul made this shocking move merely days after speaking out against her ex-husband, Ye, and his controversial anti-Semitic posts.
In a photo, Kardashian seemed to want to keep her face covered by lifting a small black backpack to face level. She dressed casually for her visit with a pair of black leggings and a large blue racer jacket.
The tv-personality also wore black Vans and shielded her face with Balenciaga sunglasses. Kardashian seemed mostly makeup free or with minimal makeup on and let her dyed blond hair fall loose.
Kim Kardashian Spoke Against Kanye West’s Actions
Earlier in the week, Kardashian took to her Instagram stories to voice her opposition to her ex-husband’s controversial anti-Semitic rants. In the statement, the reality star revealed that she stood in solidarity with the targeted Jewish community and asked that the hateful comments come to an end.
Kardashian wrote, “I stand together with the Jewish community and call on the terrible violence and hateful rhetoric towards them to come to an immediate end.”
Besides the mother of four, the rest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan also called out the anti-Semitic rants in matching statements on their social media pages. Kendall, Kylie, Kris Jenner, and Khloé all posted, “I support my Jewish friends and the Jewish people.”
Kanye West Made Anti-Semitic Comments
Kardashian’s recent posts come after West’s recent anti-Semitic posts online and the ensuing backlash. The rapper began making comments like this after being criticized for his “White Lives Matter” clothing during the Paris Fashion Week.
After the event, Ye promised to go “death con 3 on Jewish People” and got banned from both Instagram and Twitter for the statements. Fans, celebrities, and brands alike have reacted to the designer’s statements, causing a wide range of criticisms and businesses cutting ties with him.
Balenciaga notably cut ties with Ye last week, and according to Page Six, Vogue Magazine had no intention of working with him in the future. Other organizations like Gap Inc., Peloton, and notably Adidas had ended their relationships with the artist. Wax museum Madame Tussaud has also reportedly taken down the wax figure of the rapper.
Adidas Dropped Kanye West
While the “Donda” rapper lost a lot of contracts, his severed relationship with the massive sportswear brand Adidas had the most effect on his net worth. The brand previously revealed that they had his contract under review after his “White Lives Matter” controversy but recently released a statement cutting ties with him.
The statement read, “Adidas does not tolerate antisemitism and any other sort of hate speech. Ye’s recent comments and actions have been unacceptable, hateful, and dangerous, and they violate the company’s values of diversity and inclusion, mutual respect and fairness.”
Adidas’ statement was released not long after Ye appeared in an interview and claimed that the sportswear giant couldn’t drop him despite his actions. He said, “I can literally say anti-Semitic things, and Adidas can’t drop me.”
Due to the contract cancellation, Ye’s net worth reportedly dropped from $1.5 billion to $400 million. The rapper recently visited the headquarters of Jewish-owned Sketchers the next day to do business with them. He was instead escorted out of the building.
