Huh? Did Kim and Kanye get married...again?! You can certainly color us confused. After a bizarre turn of events at the rapper's Donda listening party, everyone has a ton of questions. 

Is this considered a vow renewal? Getting back together with an ex? Were they even separated long enough to be considered exes? In true Kimye fashion, this whole stunt requires some unpacking. Let's get to it!



Did Kim and Kanye get married...again? 

On August 26, 2021, the rapper held one of several listening events in Chicago for his forthcoming album, Donda. However, it seems as though everyone's forgotten about the music...and the fact that Kanye lit himself on fire. 

Yes, that's right: he went up in flames, only to be greeted by a woman in a white wedding dress upon being extinguished. Who was in the long white dress and veil? Onlookers suspect it was Kim. 

To make matters even more confusing, traditional wedding music played as Kim emerged, and even the Kardashian and Jenner sisters posted this portion of the show on their Instagram stories. Has there been a reconciliation?

According to Entertainment Tonight (opens in new tab), this is not an actual romantic reunion, but merely a stunt for one of his performances. Allegedly, the two are still parting ways but remain on "great terms." It would appear that way!

The final moment of the event seems to have negated everything else about the listening party—including, again, the fact that the rapper lit himself on fire and chose to appear alongside two artists immersed in serious controversy: DaBaby and Marilyn Manson. Oh, and the album still has yet to drop. Never a dull moment!
