As you’ve likely heard by now, Kanye West was hospitalized last week after suffering a psychological breakdown.
As is usually the case with this sort of thing, rumors about the nature and severity of his condition have been circulating non-stop, but confirmed details remain scarce.
So far, we know for certain that the rapper required nine days of in-patient care and that his release date was postponed at least once to allow for additional treatment.
Now, Kanye is out of the hospital but still under the supervision of 24-hour medical staff.
It’s been widely rumored that his erratic and possibly dangerous behavior has put a strain on his marriage to Kim Kardashian, and now People magazine is confirming that Kim and Kanye are indeed living in separate homes.
The move is said to be primarily a safety precaution, but there have been multiple reports that Kardashian and West were headed for divorce in the weeks leading up to his hospitalization.
“He is receiving outpatient care else with a medical team,” a source tells the magazine.
“Kim still seems concerned but is supportive. They don’t know for how long Kanye will need outpatient care.”
The insider says Kim is concerned for the safety of her children, who have reportedly not seen West since the day he was admitted.
“She is very worried about the kids being around Kanye,” says the source, adding that they did not accompany her on her visits to the hospital.
The family threw an early birthday party for Kim’s son Saint on Wednesday, but Kanye was not in attendance.
The unidentified family friend claims that the future of Kim and Kanye’s relationship is unclear, but adds that both parties hope to move forward as a couple.
“There are frustrations and problems, like any relationship, but they love each other deeply,” the insider says.
As for now, however, the iconic couple is soon to enter their third week of sleeping under separate roofs.
We’ll have further updates on this story as more information becomes available.
