Kanye West and Kim Kardashian reportedly set to divorce

This follows West's recent hospitalisation

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are reportedly set to divorce, following the rapper’s recent hospitalisation. Update: These reports have since been denied.

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

Now, various sources have reportedly claimed 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 she 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.”

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’.

A source is said to have told People Magazine: “Kim is being very protective and doesn’t want Kanye around the kids right now.

“Kanye’s behaviour took a huge toll on their marriage. But Kim feels relieved he is getting the help he needs. She thinks this is what it will take to save him — and help their marriage.”

Another added: “He is receiving outpatient care else with a medical team. Kim still seems concerned but is supportive.

“They don’t know for how long Kanye will need outpatient care … There are frustrations and problems, like any relationship, but they love each other deeply.”

The couple are yet to respond to the claims.
