They make money by being famous. Now that KUWTK is ending, they need new material to stay in the news. First Kanye running for president, now a divorce. Expect more such silliness every few months.Can you feel it? Breakup time! Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are getting divorced, so this news paper tells.
