Kanye West’s Popularity Rating Drops 66% Since Dating Kim Kardashian

We figured interrupting Taylor Swift at the MTV Video Music Awards would be the lowest of the low for Kanye West, but it turns out people like him even less now!

According to Q Scores, a website that measures celebrity likeability, Yeezy’s popularity rating has dropped a staggering 66% since he’s been romantically linked with baby mama Kim Kardashian.

Prior to when KimYe began dating in April 2012, Kanye had a score of 17 among women aged between 18 and 49. Fast forward to today and he’s clocking in at a measly 3.

To put that in perspective, the average hip hop artist scores between 12 and 18 and a male celebrity usually falls in the 14 to 19 range.

“Kanye has had a significant drop among women,” Henry Schafer, Executive Vice President of the Q Scores Company, told website RadarOnline. “It’s surprising.”

Kim’s ratings aren’t so hot either. Her likeability has dropped 50% within the past two years.

But Kardashian may not be the only one to blame. West’s clashes with the paparazzi have likely contributed to the nosedive in his scores as well.
