Kanye and Kim’s marriage has been on the rocks for a few weeks, starting with his tweets and what appears to be a mental health breakdown. After Kanye apologized on Twitter, he and Kim had a reunion in Wyoming, finally.
Daily Mail has the scoop:
The 39-year-old reality star appeared distressed and cried as she talked to Kanye, 43, in a vehicle, following his political campaign rally and Twitter meltdown last week, where he discussed how they once considered having an abortion and hinted she had an affair with rapper Meek Mill, which Kanye has since publicly apologized for.
It is the first time that the married couple has been pictured together since before his disastrous first campaign rally in North Charleston, South Carolina, after announcing his unlikely bid for presidency.
“‘She is very emotional about everything, and also exhausted,’ a source told People magazine Monday. ‘She feels very hurt by Kanye. She has tried to reach him multiple times and he just ignores her. It’s all a bad situation.’
The insider added: ‘She decided to fly to Cody to speak with him in person. She doesn’t want to be ignored anymore.’
While the pics are very candid, the internet has noticed some possible chicanery here.
Namely in the fact that Kanye has a whole bunker and Kim knows how to keep private if she wants, but now they have a fight in full view of paparazzi and the public?
Well, how did we get here in the first place? Hit the flip to see the history of it all.
This all started with a series of rants on Twitter, namely Kanye saying he didn’t want his kids in Playboy photoshoots and accused Kim of having an entangled private meeting with Meek Mill.
Kim spoke out on Kanye’s struggles with mental illness:
“As many of you know, Kanye has bi-polar disorder,” she began. “Anyone who has this or has a loved one in their life who does, knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand. I’ve never spoken publicly about how this has affected us at home because I am very protective of our children and Kanye’s right to privacy when it comes to his health. But today, I feel like I should comment on it because of the stigma and misconceptions about mental health.”
“Those that understand mental illness or even compulsive behavior know that the family is powerless unless the member is a minor,” she said. “People who are unaware or far removed from this experience can be judgmental and not understand that the individual themselves have to engage in the process of getting help no matter how hard family and friends try.”
“I understand Kanye is subject to criticism because he is a public figure and his actions at time can cause strong opinions and emotions,” she continued. “He is a brilliant but complicated person who on top of being an artist and a black man, who experienced the painful loss of his mother, and has to deal with the pressure and isolation that is heightened by his bi-polar disorder. Those who are close with Kanye know his heart and understand his words sometimes do not align with his intentions.”
“Living with bi-polar disorder does not diminish or invalidate his dreams and his creative ideas, no matter how big or unobtainable they may feel to some. That is part of his genius and as we have all witnessed, many of his dreams have come true,” she wrote. “We as a society talk about giving grace to the issue of mental health as a whole, however we should also give it to the individuals who are living with it in times when they need it the most. I kindly ask that the media and public give us the compassion and empathy that is needed so that we can get through this. Thank you for those who have expressed concern for Kanye’s well-being and for your understanding.”
Kanye apologized to Kim for his treatment: “I would like to apologize to my wife Kim for going public with something that was a private matter.”
“I did not cover her like she has covered me. To Kim I want to say I know I hurt you,” he continued. “Please forgive me. Thank you for always being there for me.”
