Kim and Kanye have been one of Hollywood’s power couples for a long time. And while it was predicted that these two would get divorced for a couple years running, it seemed like these two were solid. However, in 2020, Kanye and Kim were quarantining separately, and Kanye went on another of his infamous Twitter rants against Kim’s mom, Kris Jenner.

Unfortunately, she might have lost a lot of that respect this week, when one of her Goop candles exploded in someone’s living room, almost starting a fire. Jody Thompson, originally from North London, told The Sun that, “The candle exploded and emitted huge flames, with bits flying everywhere, I’ve never seen anything like it.”
