Kanye West’s Donda has been almost all the rap world has talked about recently. The release date is as unpredictable as Mr. West’s actions themselves. Indeed, it’s been the conversation of note, well that and going toe-to-toe with Drake’s September release of Certified Lover Boy.
However, Kim Kardashian has entered the chat, as the latest Donda listening event saw Kim make a cameo in an-all white Balenciaga haute couture gown as “No Child Left Behind” played.
The scene was admittedly goose-bump-inducing and keenly dramatic. Kanye had also just set himself on fire (literally). The theatrics of Kim’s silhouette as she strode in a slow walk to Kanye only added to the vision of a cliff-hanging reunion. Her dress was also reminiscent of a wedding gown, and the draping veil only added to this aesthetic. As the two met face-to-face on the field, all the lights shut off, cueing the album’s close.

This was when the internet broke.
Reports started flying that the event was a symbol of the two remarrying, or at the very least getting back together.

So let me get this straight Kanye lights himself on fire in his childhood home to let go of his past, is reborn through the ashes, and gets back with Kim in the end. INCREDIBLE. pic.twitter.com/bTW4FJ5XEi

However, as TMZ investigated, it wasn’t an expression of Kimye getting remarried or getting back together.
The publication noted that “the two are NOT back together, but they’re forever family. Kim and Kanye have always supported the other’s endeavors and will continue to do that in the future, whether it be a collaborative effort or not.”
In another report, however, another source expressed that the two are looking to rebuild things, as Complex confers.
How true this is still contested, but what is reportedly sure is that Kim’s bridal aesthetic didn’t mean an actual remarriage. Mr. West does love his shock value though, so as always, marketing props go fondly to him.
