Kanye West is out of the hospital.
But will he soon be out of a wife as well?
As most of the free world knows by now, Kanye was just released after nine days inside of UCLA Medical Center.
He was hospitalized after some kind altercation with an employee at a gym, which promoted Kanye’s personal physician to call 911 out of concern for his famous client.
This incident followed a series of bizarre headlines centered around the rapper, from his claim that he is a fan of Donald Trump… to his bashing of Beyonce… to his cancelation of the rest of his Saint Pablo tour this year.
Numerous insiders have since reported that Kanye didn’t merely suffer a nervous breakdown…
… but he continues to suffer from various mental issues.
What brought on these problems? The most reliable outlets seem to believe it was a combination of two factors:
- The ongoing trauma of wife Kim Kardashian being assaulted and robbed at gunpoint in Paris in October.
- The anniversary of his mother’s death in 2007.
Sources have said that West never properly dealt with the latter, while he can’t stop dealing with the former, creating endless amounts of stress.
Throughout his hospitalization, however, Kanye could count on the support of Kardashian.
She remained by his bedside nearly around the clock.
But it didn’t take long for the rumor mill to churn and for websites to claim that Kim may have been physically next to Kanye… but it was a different story emotionally.
“The trauma of the [robbery] made her more hesitant to do things,” according to Us Weekly, referring to how Kanye had been forced to tour on his own since the armed robbery.
“Of course it strained their relationship,” the tabloid added. “Because she hadn’t seen him.”
Suddenly, fans were wondering if Kim and Kanye were getting divorced.
And it didn’t help when People Magazine confirmed that West and Kardashian are living apart at the moment.
It’s mostly a safety precaution, due to Kanye’s mental state, but still. The optics aren’t very good.
However, E! News is here to put these divorce rumors to rest.
Kanye “will remain getting outpatient treatment till he is fully recovered,” a source told the outlet over the weekend, emphasizing that Kardashian is still closely involved in the rapper’s life.
“Kim wants him to continue getting therapy even after all of this. He has support from so many people.”
Kardashian hasn’t returned to social media or made any public appearance since the robbery.
She has A LOT going on these days.
But she’s “doing okay,” E! writes and she certainly isn’t leaving her marriage any time soon:
“She has many things on her plate so being overwhelmed is expected. She wants to get Kanye back on his feet. She is not leaving him. She loves him.”
And in case one insider’s opinion isn’t enough to sway you, a second adds to E! News:
“Kim will of course always stay by Kanye’s side and support him and help him through it all.”
Kim and Kanye’s son, Saint West, turns one year old today.
So the family will likely be together to savor and celebrate this milestone.
It’s unclear when we’ll see Kim or Kanye in public again, together or individually.
But does it even matter at this point?
Go take care of yourselves, Kim and Kanye. Go get better, physically and emotionally.
You’ll be welcomed back by fans with open arms once you do.
