Kanye West's Actions Are Stalking Behaviors

After a very public courtship and marriage, Kim Kardashian West filed for divorce from rapper Kanye West (legally known as Ye) in mid-February. In the wake of that filing, West—who shares four children with Kardashian—has exhibited behavior that ranges from bizarre to downright scary, and the media aren’t taking them seriously enough.

Kardashian, for her part, has attempted to keep the dissolution of her and West’s relationship behind closed doors, in the hands of lawyers and mediators. West—who openly pined for Kardashian for years before they got together and has since been seen out with Kim lookalikes—has other plans.

For the past six months, West has posted about the pair’s custody fight (including an accusation that Kardashian withheld the location of their child’s birthday party); made a song about how he wants to beat up Kardashian’s new boyfriend, Pete Davidson; publicly asked her to come back to him while performing at a benefit concert; sent a truck emblazoned with the phrase “MY VISION IS KRYSTAL KLEAR” with a bed full of flowers to Kardashian’s home for Valentine’s Day; posted and deleted paparazzi photos of Kardashian and Davidson, again threatening him; repeatedly shared screenshots of his private communication with Kardashian; and talked about the dissolving marriage publicly, while volunteering at a charity event benefiting the unhoused.

This is not normal, and it should not be passed off as romantic or okay or fodder for our entertainment. “This situation is being treated as celebrity spectacle or like your typical Kardashian drama, but the behaviors are really familiar to us because of how much it mirrors real-life examples that we deal with in our law practice all of the time,” Annie Seifullah, an associate attorney with C.A. Goldberg Law, told Jezebel by phone. “Targets of this type of abuse know that once they physically separate themselves, they’re still going to be the subject and target of the ex partner’s obsession. And when the abusive ex partner no longer has like a physical or emotional control of the victim because they have left the situation, the ex partner often resorts to causing havoc around their target in order to maintain power and control even after they’ve left their relationship.”

1. He's a very dangerous combination of narcissistic, self-entitled, and wealthy as hell--making it

unlikely anyone really tells him "No." Add to that his poorly controlled bipolar disorder (and possibly other issues) and Kim's got a lifetime of headaches with this one. Sharing kids makes for a nightmare for the indefinite future and makes it impossible for her to fully ignore him.

I'm not into celebrity culture but it is impossible to tune some of it out.

3. He needs help.

His behavior isn't normal or healthy and he seems to be getting worse. I hope he gets the help he needs.

I have been targeted by someone who I wasn't in a relationship with. It was scary. He did not write songs or make public pronouncements but his behavior was still very threatening. Because I lived in a protected community, he would show up at my church, mother's home, dance studio, or any other place he thought I might be. He even found my grandmother at church and tried to contact me through her.

I can not imagine the stress behavior like this would cause coming from an estranged spouse. It must be really complicated and messy.

6. I'm really not into celebrity culture

nor am I a fan of either of them, but I put this out here as a cautionary tale because your daughters or granddaughters will have seen these stories, and this makes a really good jumping-off point for a discussion with them about obsessive behavior and stalking. It doesn't have to be a celebrity. It can be anybody, of any age. It wasn't that long ago that a 16 year old girl in Knoxville was shot and killed as she slept by a boy she'd broken up with, a boy who just couldn't let go.

7. He bought the house across the street from her....

That is what I heard this AM on Stephanie Miller Show.

That is beyond F'd up & I hope judge can write a restraining order preventing him from living there.

8. Anybody With A Brain Knew He Was Fucked Up Years Ago

Yet, Kim still chose to marry him, and give birth to 4 kids with him.

I had seen enough Lifetime movies to know that this wasn't going to end well.

11. I call B.S. on this whole thing - both are publicity pigs

They both thrive on the notoriety and press - attention hogs who both bathe in attention. It's their thing.
