They are one of the world’s favourite couple. In fact millions adore their love life but what they don’t know is that Kanye West and Kim Kadashian are on the verge of breaking up.
The latest from the US is that the power couple has of late been fighting which has resulted in the Keeping up with the Kadashians actress to ask for a break, the Daily Mail reports.
This comes shortly after Kim Kadashian’s Paris robbery ordeal. Apparently, Kim felt like she couldn’t lean on the “workaholic” rapper, who was becoming increasingly “paranoid” and not sleeping.
The Daily Mail reports that the 39-year-old Famous hit maker had become “unbearable” to live with and the duo, who share a 11,000 sq ft Bel Air home together, were fighting a lot.
“He would be up all night ranting about things,” said the insider who added that Kanye “unraveled” when he realized he can’t do it all. He’d be up drawing, writing and sketching, or pacing and doing push-ups. He would not calm down and go to bed.
Things reportedly came to a head when Kanye’s on-stage rants became increasingly worrying and controversial, ending one of his concerts after just three songs.
In Sacramento, California the rapper launched into a 15-minute tirade attacking friend Beyonce and begging Jay Z to call him before walking off stage. Two days later the producer canceled his remaining Saint Pablo tour dates.
“She didn’t know if she could take it anymore, and this time she refused to support him,” a source close to Kim revealed.
It all became too much for Kim, 36, who, at the time of Kanye’s breakdown was planning her first public appearance since the jewelry heist, at the Angel Ball in New York to honour her late father Robert Kadashian.
But as she left for the east coast, the KUWTK star informed her husband of two years that she needed a break and told him she didn’t want to talk to him, according to Us Weekly.
A source said Kim felt like Kanye had bailed on her and that “she felt like she needed him to be stable and her rock instead of the other way around.”
While Kim, who suffered nightmares and flashbacks, was “disappointed at the lack of support” from her husband after the October 3 heist, he himself was struggling to deal with the terrifying incident.
The experience reportedly left Kanye “completely freaked out” and the fact that it happened near the nine-year anniversary of the loss of his mother Donda only deepened the rapper’s distress.
