While it's true that Kim Kardashian-Kanye West divorce rumors have been circulating pretty much since the day the couple got hitched, this time around there's real reason to believe that Kimye may soon be a thing of the past.
Sources have confirmed that Kim and Kanye lived in separate homes for a brief period following his hospitalization for psychiatric issues.
These days, it appears that the Wests are once again cohabiting, but that doesn't mean they're out of the woods just yet.
In fact, it seems that Kim and Kanye are having such a tough time lately that they've been undergoing an "extreme" form of couples counseling in a last-ditch effort to save their struggling marriage.
“They’re having twice-weekly sessions, plus a third session on their own, each of which costs $1,000 a pop,” a source close to the couple tells Radar Online.
On top of the frequent face-to-face sessions, Kim and Yeezy have reportedly been taking full advantage of their therapist's 24-hour stand-by services.
“Their on-call therapist is available 24/7, which doesn’t come cheap, but she’s also available via Skype if they’re out of town," says the insider.
Not surprisingly, that sort of round-the-clock help doesn't come cheap:
“The help is costing them $4,000 a week for the four sessions and another $1,000 every time there’s an off-hours query," the source adds.
Yes, $1,000 for a phone call.
At that rate, most folks would hold off unless there was some sort of serious emergency, but this is Kanye we're talking about.
You know he's making the call every time Kim forgets to tell him how dope his leather sweat pants are.
The whole situation sounds extreme, but apparently Kim and Kanye's problems are serious enough to justify this approach.
The insider says Kim nearly reached her breaking point when she was robbed at gunpoint in Paris back in October.
Kanye was reportedly not as supportive as Kim needed him to be, and she was forced to finally come clean about a litany of complaints that she had been keeping to herself.
“They have a lot of issues to work through and Kanye’s in total shock at just how unhappy Kim’s been,” said the source.
“He’s had his head in the clouds.”
Head in the clouds? Kanye?
We simply can't believe that.
Are we laying on the sarcasm thick enough for you?
