Yesterday also saw various sources claiming that West and Kardashian’s marriage may be coming to an end. Speaking to US Weekly, a friend of the family reportedly said: “It will take some time before [Kim] can do anything. She doesn’t want to stay married. She’s being a supportive wife. She cares about Kanye and feels relieved he’s getting the help he needs but she’s felt trapped for a while.”
Following the reports, Kardashian’s close friend and fellow reality TV star Jonathan Cheban denied that the couple are to divorce, telling E! News: “I just FaceTimed with Kim and Kanye and everyone’s talking about some divorce rumours and I was laughing because I didn’t hear that all day and I guess everybody else apparently here did and it’s so funny to me because it’s so not true.”
He added: “They’re in good spirits. I don’t want to talk much about them because it’s not my business but I do have to say that the divorcing is kind of hysterical, that I will mention, because I just spoke to both of them on FaceTime literally before I was coming here and when I heard that I literally burst out laughing.”
The official Twitter for Kardashian’s reality TV show Keep Up With The Kardashians also tweeted a message, saying: “Calm down everyone: Kim and Kanye are NOT divorcing.” See that below.

West’s hospitalisation came after an erratic few weeks. He cancelled the remainder of his ‘Saint Pablo’ tour, after a concert in Sacramento where he controversially cut his set short after just 30 minutes following a rant about Beyonce, where he claimed that her husband and West’s former friend and collaborator Jay Z had the means to have him killed. He also caused controversy when he admitted that he ‘would have voted for Donald Trump’.
