Real-life situations hit hard, and this time around, there is so much in the bag for the celebrity couple, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, who have been reported to be currently undergoing serious challenges in their marriage.
Partly due owing to the fact that the current pandemic, has made a lot of couples see the cracks in their marriages and for Kim, it is Kanye’s obsessive nature of being controlling and adamant. According to sources close to the couple, though they have been through a lot of misunderstanding, the issue majorly got heated up with his rant on TMZ in 2018, and shortly after, admitting to being bipolar, hence justifying some of his erratic behavior.
The couple who had been friends from way back got married in 2014, right after Kim had processed her divorce with ex-husband Humphries. Last year, there were several hints that things had gone south with the couple, with Kim confessing that he had become more forceful with his ideals, right after he expressed his displeasure at her MET Gala outfit, and of course, the way he got rid of a couple of items in the house, including a TV set and makeup bag which belonged to their kids.
Since then, it has been an on and off episode for the couple, and recently, according to close sources, the couple has had to seek help with a therapist. It was also mentioned that they spend a few hours with the therapist, venting out their anger, and building the strength of their communication.
Last month, West, took some of the children away from their home in California, to Wyoming, for Kim to have some time to herself, and this had reportedly been the case as they take turns in caring for the children, right after Kim expressed her anger for his lack of doing so, at the start of the social distancing period.
Though there have quite a number of speculation about whether or not their marriage is heading for the rocks, some fans have expressed their satisfaction at how well they are both handling the internal pressure, hoping that things return to normal for the couple.
Remember, how they rapidly grew to become one of the industry’s most celebrated couple? Well, this just goes on to say that there more in every relationship/marriage than actually meets the eye. Just because you see married couples smile, and stay happy on the outside, doesn’t mean all is well on the home front. Hence don’t compare whatever you have with someone else’s, who knows, you might even be having it so well at your end.
As for Kim and Kanye, we hope they get past their differences and work out their love story once again. We can’t wait!
