Kanye West and Kim Kardashian divorce rumours denied

Kardashian's friend Jonathan Cheban describes divorce rumours as 'hysterical' and 'so not true'

Sources close to Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have reportedly denied that the pair are set to divorce following recent rumours of a potential split.

West was reportedly released from hospital last week after being hospitalised for “temporary psychosis due to sleep deprivation and dehydration” late last month, following a series on on-stage outbursts. It was claimed yesterday that West would be ‘taking a break’ for the rest of the year.

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’.

Kanye West’s ‘The Life Of Pablo’ is number two in NME‘s Albums Of The Year list for 2016. West also featured in our Songs Of The Year list.
