It came as no surprise that Kanye West was spiraling out of control and his mental health was teetering on the brink of unstable. Well, to everyone but Kim Kardashian, that is. Maybe because she was dealing with her own traumas, or taking too many selfies, but this past year, Kanye has shown just how troubled he was. And possibly because Kim didn’t realize it was happening and presumably chalked it up to Kanye being Kanye, their marital problems began before he was hospitalized.
“The divorce rumors come from before he had the breakdown,” a source told People. “She didn’t know what was up with him and they weren’t spending time together. She didn’t realize it was a mental breakdown.”
Kim obviously had a lot going on but Kanye’s questionable behaviour has been building. The fact that things only got more strained after she was held at gunpoint in Paris, and that he wasn’t there for her in the seven weeks between that and his own breakdown, obviously didn’t help matters. After he was admitted to the UCLA Medical Center, she spent Thanksgiving by his side and the two are trying to make it work. And despite the reports that they were living apart after his release, divorce reportedly isn’t imminent.
“Splitting is not even a point of discussion,” the insider said, adding that there’s “no truth” to the divorce rumours. “He had a breakdown but it does not pertain to them not getting along.”
There’s something about the holidays that bring people together and they’re doing just that with Kim and Kanye, who will celebrate Christmas with their kids, North and Saint. Is this make or break time? Perhaps. But maybe this is exactly what the family needs for them both to realize just how much they love each other and want to make it work. Kanye needs to be there, for Kim and their kids. Hopefully the holidays will make them both realize that family is what matters most.
