For a while there, it looked like Kimye was a thing of the past.
Just last month, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian were living in separate homes and seemingly on the verge of divorce.
(It would be his first, her third.)
There had been rumors of trouble in the Wests marriage in the past, but this time, there was real reason to believe that the couple had actually hit a rough patch.
The situation came to a head when West was hospitalized following an emotional breakdown back in November.
In the weeks that followed, the iconic rapper had to fight to recover and find a treatment program that would work for him going forward.
Now, it seems that he also had to fight to save his ailing marriage.
Prior to his hospitalization, Kanye took flak from the Kardashians for not being supportive enough after Kim was robbed at gunpoint in Paris.
At the time, insiders say, she was ready to leave her husband of two years due to his emotionally distant and increasingly erratic behavior.
“She didn’t realize how much of Kanye’s behavior stems from a mental illness,” an insider tells Us Weekly.
“When he’s doing the things his therapists tell him to do, she is so much happier.”
These days, the Wests are reportedly back together, but still taking things slowly.
Kanye is back living at home after spending some time in a sort of private halfway house designed to ease his transition back into day-to-day life.
In addition to making amends with Kim, Kanye is said to be focusing on repairing the other damaged relationships in his life.
The insider confirms reports that the Wests have apologized to Jay Z and Beyonce, following Kanye’s public bashing of the hip hop power couple back in November:
The couples had a sit-down and Jay and Bey’s SoCal home last week, during which Yeezy reportedly offered a full apology for the damage he’d done to their friendship.
“Jay was very reasonable and understood that Kanye wasn’t feeling well when he made the remarks,” says the source.
“He was forgiving.”
Hopefully, members of Kanye’s fan base who have been alienated by his antagonistic remarks in recent months will feel the same way.
