Kanye West cheated on Kim Kardashian after she welcomed her first two kids — and is the inspiration for his new song “Hurricane.”
Multiple sources confirmed the meaning behind the telling lyrics in the track off “Donda,” his 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 the 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 brief fling Irina Shayk, despite rumors swirling otherwise.
“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 their 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 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 Kim, as she went on to have two more kids before ending it.
A rep for West didn’t immediately return Page Six’s request for comment. Page Six broke the news in early January that Kim, 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.
