Kanye earns a lot more money than Kim, and she fears losing her meal ticket as she ages out of reality TV and sponsorships.
Kanye revealed his admiration for Owens in a Twitter post in April, tweeting: “I love the way Candace Owens thinks”.
Kim dropped everything and rushed over to Africa when she got word that Owens accompanied the rap producer to the African Nation of Uganda.
Kim, 37, reportedly caught Kanye kissing Owens, according to Radar Online.
"Kanye's into Candace and Kim's very scared," a source tells Radar.
According to the source, Kanye told Kim that Candace was his "best friend."
Radar reported Kanye was spotted cozying up to Owens at a listening party for his new album Ye.
"Kim caught Kanye giving Candace a kiss while they were elephant watching and she lost it!" the source told Radar. "She confronted Candace, telling her to back up off Kanye and get her own man."
Kim also raised eyebrows when she willingly allowed Kanye to take their son, Saint, to live with him in Chicago for a month.
While Kanye was in Africa wit Candace, Kim was posting photos showing Saint attending a teacup party with his cousins. A day later, the reality TV star was in Africa posing for photos alongside her husband, who didn't look pleased.
Kanye, 41, has dropped hints that he may be over his wife and her family.
While visiting the White House last week, Kanye said he didn't vote for Hillary Clinton because the White House needs more male energy.
"My dad and my mom separated so there was not a lot of male energy in my home," said Kanye. "And also I'm married to a family where, you know, there's not a lot of male energy. It's beautiful though."
