Kanye West & Kim Kardashian: Headed For DIVORCE Prior to Breakdown?!

by at .

As you've likely heard, Kanye West was hospitalized last week after suffering an emotional breakdown during a session with his personal trainer.

There were reports that West would be released earlier this week, but now we're learning that the rapper will remain at the UCLA Medical Center for the foreseeable future.

There are conflicting reports about the nature and severity of West's condition, but accounts concur that West has been clashing with medical staff and complicating his own course of treatment.

As for what triggered Kanye's breakdown, there are varying reports on that score, as well.

Some say it began with the death of his mother, Donda West, back in 2007.

Others say Kanye was more upset than he let on in the weeks after his wife, Kim Kardashian, was robbed at gunpoint in Paris, and the pressure of touring after such a traumatic event eventually got to him.

Now, a new report from Us Weekly is offering a third explanation, claiming that the Wests were on the brink of divorce in the weeks before Kanye's breakdown.

An insider tells the magazine that after Kim's robbery, the couple was forced to spend large amounts of time apart for the first time in their marriage.

Kim thought it best that she lie low at home while Kanye was on tour, and the distance between them resulted in an emotional rift.

“The trauma of the incident made her more hesitant to do things,” explains the source.

“Of course it strained their relationship, because she hadn’t seen him.”

The insider adds that the new circumstances seemed to take a greater toll on Kanye than on Kim:

“He would be up all night ranting about things. They were fighting because he was impossible to live with,” says the source.

“The mere thought of his wife being taken from him was too much — it was like his mother’s death. Seeing Kim close to death did a major number on him. It sent him into a tailspin.”  

The insider adds that the robbery resulted in a shift in Kim and Kanye's relationship which created problems:

“She felt like now she needed him to be stable and her rock instead of the other way around," says the source.

"Kanye’s so used to getting Kim’s constant support, but it’s always about Kanye.

“Kanye’s behavior 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.”

Rumors about Kim and Kanye parting ways have been circulating for years, but this seems to be the roughest patch they've endured so far.

Fortunately, no matter happens later, sources say Kim has been by Kanye's side throughout his current ordeal.
