Power couple Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are reportedly living separately following Yeezy’s recent hospitalization.
According to Us Weekly, the rapper is residing at a rental house where he’s receiving outpatient treatment after a bout with extreme exhaustion and experiencing an alleged nervous breakdown, while his wife and children reside elsewhere.
Insiders close to the couple revealed that while “Kim is being very protective and doesn’t want Kanye around the kids right now,” she isn’t keeping her two children, North and Saint, from their father.
Sources also claim that Kardashian’s October 2016 robbery in Paris placed a huge burden on their union revealing, “It’s just been hell for them.” The source went on to say, “Kanye’s behavior took a huge toll on their marriage. But Kim feels relieved he is getting the help he needs. She thinks this is what it will take to save him — and help their marriage.”
News of the couple living separately comes as a surprise as Kardashian reportedly threw her hubby a welcome home party in conjunction with their son’s first birthday right after he was released from the hospital.
Despite frequent reports, neither Kanye West or Kim Kardashian has released an official statement on Yeezy’s hospitalization or the current state of their marriage.
