Kris Jenner may have been surprised to see her son-in-law Kanye West drag her on Twitter in recent weeks.
“Kris has a great relationship with Kanye,” says an insider exclusively Us weekly, noting that the 64-year-old mother “wants to” support both West, 43, and her daughter Kim Kardashian as they work through their struggles.
While the rapper made headlines for his social media activities, including the claim that his mother-in-law and wife wanted to “lock him up” for controversial comments he made during his presidential campaign rally, referring to Jenner as “Kris Jung-Un, West’s recent behavior is just one of the reasons his marriage may be in trouble, by source.
“Kim is not leaving the relationship because of this current situation, but before this situation they had talked about divorce for the past three months or so,” the source said. “Kim wanted this marriage to be successful, and so was Kanye. Both still love each other and there is still some interest in making this marriage a success, but in recent months it seemed much less likely. ‘
Kardashian was spotted during a tense conversation with West in Wyoming on Monday, July 27, a week after his Twitter rant, which has since been removed. According to the source, the CEO of KKW Beauty is concerned about West’s fight against bipolar disorder.
“There is no talk of divorce until he can be in a better mental space,” the source said, noting that Kardashian and West saw each other “about once every five weeks” prior to his recent struggles. “When they’re together, it’s okay between them, but they haven’t spent time together because he moved his life completely to Wyoming and that’s not where their life is, their family, their kids at school, or the bigger family.”
Kardashian and West, who got married in 2014, share four children: North, 7, Saint, 4, Chicago, 2, and Psalm, 14 months. After revealing at his meeting that the couple was discussing ending Kardashian’s first pregnancy, the Yeezy designer tweeted that he was trying to separate her for two years. Then he publicly apologized to his wife.
“I want to apologize to my wife Kim for going public with something private,” West tweeted on Saturday, July 25. “I didn’t cover her like she covered me. I want to say to Kim that I know I hurt you. Please forgive me. Thank you for always being there for me.”
Later that day, West was seen in a hospital near his ranch.
“Kanye has been experiencing a lot of anxiety lately. He was surrounded by many people and started to feel really overwhelmed, ‘said a source U.S. Kanye decided to go to the hospital to be checked out. Upon his arrival, Kanye decided he would rather be seen at home. He went back to his house – an ambulance followed. Kanye has been treated and his doctor says his vital signs are normal. He feels much better. ‘
