People: Kim Kardashian ‘is very worried about the kids being around Kanye’


Kanye West is still seeking treatment at UCLA Medical Center. Reportedly, his stay is open-ended at this point, and no one really knows when he’ll be discharged. I think that’s being reflected in the more official-sounding leaks to E! News, TMZ and People Magazine too. I can only assume that these leaks are coming from Kris Jenner or Kim Kardashian or both. But what’s interesting is that the leaks aren’t happy-happy, let’s-put-a-positive-spin-on-this. The leaks are getting DARK. Here are some assorted quotes from several People Mag stories:

Kanye’s condition is serious. A source says that West generally has “big ups and big downs, but this bout seems to be much more serious. In the hospital he has been very paranoid and is under constant watch for his safety. He’s still there because clearly he’s not doing well.”

Kim is doing what she can. Reportedly, Kim “acts very concerned. She says he has yet to be diagnosed, but she uses words like paranoia and explained that Kanye thinks everyone is out to get him. The only person Kanye trusts is Kim. Kim does spend hours with Kanye every day. She says that Kanye is on many different medications and that his doctors are figuring out proper doses. Kim says that not much has changed since he was admitted and that his doctors seem concerned.”

Kanye wants to work. Yet another source tells People, “They tell me he’s doing good… he’s been really eager to make music and to work even from the hospital bed.”

Kanye’s kids haven’t visited him. A source says, “The kids have not visited. Kim has been there,” a source close to the situation tells PEOPLE. Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital at UCLA, where West is being treated, allows children to visit with adult accompaniment and patient permission. Though supportive, a Kardashian family insider says that the episode has left Kim, 36, feeling “overwhelmed” and concerned about West’s relationship with their children, North, 3, and Saint, 11 months. “She is very worried about the kids being around Kanye,” another source close to the family tells PEOPLE.

[From People Magazine]

I wonder if Kim is worried that Kanye will have issues around the kids, or if she worries about the kids seeing Kanye in that kind of state. It’s probably a little bit of both, and I think that part says a lot about how badly Kanye is doing overall, that Kim doesn’t even want to bring the kids to the hospital. It also wouldn’t surprise me at all if Kim and the kids were staying with Kris Jenner right now, don’t you think?

Meanwhile, E! News reports that Kanye has decided that he isn’t ready to go back home and that he knows he isn’t where he should be mentally. As for the state of their marriage, while sources admit that this is a difficult time, Kim and Kanye “know in the end this will bring them closer. Their love has not been affected during this hard time, but it has been tested to see if they can get through it. They have faith they will.”

And finally, production on Keeping Up with the Kardashians has been shut down until further notice. The production was suspended following Kim’s robbery in Paris, and she apparently has barely filmed anything since. Now with Kanye in the hospital, E! is pretty much resigned to the idea that the production won’t be back up until next year. And even then, Kim might be out.

    Wondering if they will talk about Kayne’s mental breakdown on the show like they did with Lamar.

  2. Priscilla says:

    This is so sad. God I feel really bad for her. But I’m glad she’s being strong for her kids. Life has weird and hard twists sometimes. It’s how we adapt to the chaos that shows who we really are.

    • Hannah says:

      My grandmother was schizophrenic and my mother has terrible memories of the crisis she witnessed during her childhood, so it’s good that Kim don’t want the kids to be traumatized, especially in such a young age.
      And it’s starting to look like the Britney situation.

    • dana says:

      I don’t know. I say again from the K family… too many leaks about how helpful they are and how bad he is. The story if you read it essentially says:
      Kanye was really suffering and Kim needed him. He became just as traumatized as she did after her robbery compounded with the death of him moms anniversary. And she was angry with him and left. IN THE MIDDLE OF HIS BREAKDOWN. Kim was not there for him bc she was upset he wasn’t there for her.
      His trainer had to send him to the hospital. Imagine your spouse showing his ass… and you saying, fuck it, i’m out. And the random trainer has to get him help. WTF. So now she’s staying with him in the hospital, and suddenly he’s unfit to stay around his children and reports get worse. If they were so bad why not get help for your husband. Seems to me like she was traumatized by her experience and his actions. But theres a thing called identifying if the one you need help from is mentally stable themselves to give it. And he wasn’t, but that doesn’t mean you bail on them. The minute Kanye heard of your assault, he was on a plane. The minute Kanye broke down, she abandoned him and blamed him for not being supportive. Sounds like same ol Kardashian version of abandonment when things get tough.

      • swak says:

        FYI, Kanye did not get on a plane to go to Kim. He cancelled the rest of his concert that night. Kim flew back to NYC as soon as possible because people were questioning how she was able to fly out so quickly.

      • Tanya says:

        I agree with much of what you say, but as a parent of very young children, if my spouse were to behave in a way that I thought would be harmful to my kids, I’d get them out first and deal with him later.

      • squirrelgirl says:

        Here are some truths… when a patient is in a treatment facility, family members can only visit up to 30 minutes at a time about twice a day. Any more than that affects the treatment and can hinder his progress towards health. So this “hours on end with Kanye” is total bull. The doctors can tell her things but they aren’t going to sit with her for hours explaining his situation.

      • Jag says:

        From what I understand, Kim had an engagement to attend, so that’s why she got on a plane and left.

        I don’t usually defend her, but it’s not like she just hopped a plane as soon as he needed her.

    • ravensdaughter says:

      Well said, Priscilla.

  3. RussianBlueCat says:

    That sound you hear is the Kardashian bulldozer revving up to flatten Kanye in the upcoming divorce. Someone (Kris) is getting all the ducks in a row for when it happens. The only reason that the show is not being filmed is that people would criticize Kim for working on KUWTK while her husband is in the hospital. These leaks to the media are disgusting. A simple ” This is a private family matter. Please respect our privacy at this time” would have been fine. But this is the Kardashians we are talking about. They don’t know the meaning of the word privacy

    • anonymous says:

      Exactly. They are literally trowing him under the bus right now just so she can appear as a saint when she files for divorce.

      • Original T.C. says:

        I’m not sure it will work. The public has seen Kanye at his worst and have no time for his megalomaniac antics. But true mental illness is different. Most people have some sympathy and Kim will look bad throwing a sick spouse under the bus. Also Kanye is richer and more famous than Lamar.

    • HK9 says:

      Yup. This is what they do. I just wish they would leave the children out of it. Let the man recover in peace and stop leaking info to the press.

    • Squiggisbig says:

      I thought the same thing. All these stories are basically about Kim and how selfless she is. I assume the next play is “kim loves Kanye but feels they need to separate for the safety of the children.”

      • lightpurple says:

        That is definitely coming.

      • minx says:

        “Kim’s Torment” will be the main headline on People/Us. Subhead “How Kim made the painful decision to protect her children and leave Kanye.”
        5, 4, 3, 2, 1….

      • Kate says:

        Kris saw the Angelina/Brad headlines and thought …. I can do that too! Similar narrative.

      • lightpurple says:

        And then: “Kim’s Exclusive First Interview Since The Painful Decision To Divorce Kanye” to People, followed by “Kim: Single Again and Loving It” with nude or semi-nude pictures in Maxim or GQ.

      • Megan says:

        I used to think Kanye knew what he was getting into since the Ks live their life in public, but now I am not so sure. It seems like he has had mental health issues for a long time. I feel sorry for him because he really loves her, his kids, and her family. A divorce would be devasting for him.

    • paolanqar says:

      Kris knows how to spin this. She will make Kanye totally unsuitable and unsafe to be with his children so Kim will have custody and people’s opinion on her side.
      This family is disgusting.

    • Suzie says:

      I’m also wondering if realizing how much people dislike her after the robbery was a hard blow on Kim and made her come up with a plan to have a more positive image: less selfies, devoted wife, no more reality TV, etc.

      • Tris says:

        Along with preventative mastectomies and international humanitarian work, Angelina sparks a trend in getting the hell away from your exhausting man-child of a husband on grounds of ‘protecting the children’.

    • Blackcat says:

      @Russian Blue Cat


    • Bonbons says:


      Engage PR Divorce Prep V2, K- Town. All St Kim media leaks are on full speed! NOw releasing “its for the children” mode! Alert the media! Laura Wasser on standby!

      This is not a drill, I repeat, this is not a drill!

    • HappyMom says:

      Yep-new story just out on US Weekly that they’ve been separated for a few weeks, and that when she was on her way to NYC she told him she didn’t want to talk to him anymore-and that was the tipping point.

    • Kitten says:

      Precisely. Same pattern every damn time.

    • Frida says:

      This is exactly how Kris handled Khloe/Lamar. She released a slew of stories to the press pre-divorce to paint Khloe the victim, then orchestrated the narrative on the show to reflect that. I guarantee Kim is about to file for divorce, and all these stories about Kim (some of which may be true, but so damn melodramatic), will give her the leverage to come out of the divorce unscathed.

    • Pandy says:

      SO SPOT ON!!! We already have the narrative starting on how she will obtain sole custody … she’s “afraid for the kids”. She’s not afraid they have to see her walking out in public in lingerie or with her giant ass out on the cover of a magazine. No, they have to be afraid of their father.

      He’d better hope he gets insurance $$ to cover his cancelled appointments. He will be bleeding support money to St. Kim.

    • Erica_V says:

      I said this last week – 100% that is their MO for the end of every relationship.

    • BTownGirl says:

      My thoughts exactly. Now that he’s not useful, she can claim she made the decision to leave him because…Think of The Children! I feel terrible for him.

  4. Nancy says:

    First of all I hope he gets well. I agree the children shouldn’t see him in the hospital. North is too young to understand and it could further complicate Kanye’s state of mind, as well as hers. Lastly, if true, how strange is it that this is what will finally shut that show down. A reality show stopped by reality.

  5. Allie B. says:

    It seems like a combination of drugs and mental illness. He’s never been shy about talking a little recreational use, which is dangerous when you already have a chemical imbalance. Nervous breakdowns are so Hollywood.

    • dana says:

      Kanye has never joked or rhymed about him using drugs. Think again for you paint all rappers or POC with the same brush. Egomaniac, yes. Drug user, no.

    • Chicagogurl says:

      He’s never been into drugs, but he’s always been an egomaniac. I personally think this is all build up from Shonda’s death. I knew people who worked with him in Chicago and literally to say Momma’s boy was putting it mildly. He called her for almost every opinion/decision – to a point of crippling. He likely just threw himself into a relationship with Kim and as time progressed he began to depend on her the same way. He was also used to his mom depending on him. That has to be a big hole. The thought of losing Kim likely stirred up unresolved mom stuff. I have always thought he legitimately has narcissistic personality disorder – the description is eerily accurate.

      • Allie B. says:

        So you’re saying that he doesn’t recreationally use the drugs he’s admitted to taking? I am not saying he is an addict. You can dabble and it’s totally fine, however, that’s not recommended when you have issues already. It’s a trigger. Yes, his mother died. A lot of people have parents that die, but this is nowhere near a healthy response to grieving just from being extremely close to a parent. He self medicates and parties with alcohol and drugs, maybe weed, ecstacy, other pills and most likely has BPd.

  6. minx says:

    Here we go. St. Kim.

  7. trollontheloose says:

    when in his last rants he asked Jay Z to call back “his killers” I knew there was paranoia and him saying I would have voted for Trump didn’t make him any friends (he leeches on people with power and money, forget integrity when he thinks he can have a ally with deep pockets) i don’t trust any stories because of spins that the Kardashians are putting out there especially knowing the narratives they concoct for the men they date/marry. I can’t stand both of them but paranoia and bi-polar disorder is no joke. I get to be around some celebrities and many are paranoid about people around them selling their stories what they did or said in private, who leaked a pic etc.. they often will search in their very members of family or friends, they make a mountain of nothing, they are very suspicious. If someone didn’t get a role they believe there was a campaign against them. in the case of kanye I think he thought he made it in name and fame and being in tabloids every day but then his thinking doesn’t come out the way he feels that and the story about Kim footing the bill for the house makes him the guy has no money and his girl is richer that he is which I am sure is not something he would want in business and friendship too come out. I believe he lost lots of money and has to borrow left and right. His ego is burning and I guess many of his friends started to ghost him or less willing to work with him. I’m sure he wants to leave a legacy of some sort hence him always comparing himself to semi gods of Jesus and Co.

  8. Sam says:

    St. Kim is planning on filing that divorce. That’s what all these leaked stories are hinting at. First it starts with a breakdown, then it goes on about how the Kardashians were always there and then it ends with well he’s too dangerous to be around the kids. That’s the nail in the coffin.

  9. AmunetMaat says:

    I think these daily updates are becoming too much. Kanye needs to not be in the spotlight. I agree with others that this is a serious problem and I am glad he is getting the help he needs. I don’t know these people or follow them enough to know what they think or feel, but Kim and Kanye seemed like a solid couple with similar goals, but mental illness and dealing with a home invasion/robbery can put a lot of stress on any strong relationship. Hopefully things will improve, but these updates need to stop. I don’t want to know about his day to day. I prefer to know he’s better when he finally drops a fiyah album with promo.

  10. Bess says:

    If Kanye is still paranoid and yet still calling the shots, UCLA is not really helping him. He should be on the same routine for therapy and visiting hours as every other patient in the unit. Kim should not be there all day and when she does visit Kanye for 1 or 2 hours per day, it should be in the common area.

    Also, someone at UCLA must realize that the Kardashian camp is leaking information about their patient. The Kardashians are violating patient privacy and should be warned and then banned if it continues.

    • paranormalgirl says:

      If he is not being hospitalized involuntarily, then he gets to “call the shots” medically,along with his doctors. As for visitation, as long as the doctor and patient agree, there is 24 hour visitation at UCLA. The Neuropsychiatric hospital there generally allows visiting around the clock provided it is not contraindicated by the patient’s program. Visitation doesn’t need to be in the common area. This isn’t “Kanye Interrupted.”

      • Bess says:

        Then UCLA must be completely different from other psych units because I’ve never heard that a patients spouse can be with him or her for most of the day. Also, if Kanye is still so paranoid that he is giving the doctors a hard time, isn’t that a sign that he shouldn’t be calling the shots?

      • paranormalgirl says:

        It’s all based on what is good for the patient and the program they are in.

        Most of the hospitals where I have admitting privs, they do have pretty strict formal visiting hours (an hour or two daily and 2 – 4 hours on weekends) but UCLA is a whole different animal. The Regan hospital has 24 hour visitation and the Neuropsychiatric Hospital is based on patient need and program the patient is admitted to.

      • jwoolman says:

        That makes sense. Visitation should be based on how it affects the patient. If Kim’s presence helps rather than hinders, why not? Kanye sounds as though he is in a very bad way, anything that helps calm him would be welcome. I would assume he will need strict medical supervision for quite a while, even if his conditions are treatable with drugs (many are not), it can take a long time to discover the right drug and the right dose. These things are not as simple as taking aspirin for a headache.

    • Bonbons says:

      I don’t think family members are bound by HIPPA. Only medical,professionals. Family discussing it is certainly disgusting but not illegal.

      • paranormalgirl says:

        Family members are not bound by HIPAA. They can pretty much say whatever they want. Only the medical professionals and those involved in billing, etc are bound by HIPAA, as Bonbons said.

      • Megan says:

        The leaks may be legal, but they are horrible. Can you imagine having details of a medical emergency broadcast to the world? It is just so wrong.

    • KWM says:

      When my sister in law was in the psych ward, we could visit in her room. But it was for 2 hours only 2 days a week. But she was in the strictest ward, they called it Level 3, level 2 had more days of visit and longer hours, level 1 basically followed a normal hospital visiting hours.

    • Lindsey says:

      They aren’t medical professionals so there isn’t any law requiring them to maintain patient confidentiality. It is not like they are dishing about other people on his unit. The doctors need to pay attention to their patient, not his media coverage, that isn’t their responsibility. Kanye has to make that call.

    • Nicole says:

      Thank you! @Bess. I completely agree. This is so convoluted.

  11. Mogul says:


    • L says:

      yes. I remember one time Khloe was talking about how Kim idolizes Liz Taylor and bought some of her jewelry. Looks like Kim is going down the path of multiple marriages/divorces like her, too!

      • Nancy says:

        Khloe’s the one to talk………she has a resume of fallen ballers, they just didn’t marry her except for poor Lamar. The curse of the Kardashians….lol

  12. Jem says:

    I’m pretty sure they don’t allow children that young in an adult psychiatric ward, it has nothing to do with what anybody ‘wants’. I’m pretty sure that’s not allowed.

    • swak says:

      I was wondering who would and would not be allowed and how much time that even Kim gets to stay with him. If they are trying top work on his mental health, then unless she is part of the process, she should not be there. Also, all this is coming, again, from sources.

      • Katie says:

        In my experience with family members, very little time is actually spent with doctors and therapists actively working on /with the patient. Maybe 2 hrs per day. The remaining hours of the day are spent resting. It is extremely important to have family and friend support with you during the rest of the day. Patients whose family members leave them “in the capable hands of the doctors” don’t do as well as those who have a support system and a family advocate with them almost all day.

      • swak says:

        @Katie, thanks. I just think all this “up to the minute” reports that are coming out cannot be helping. Don’t know who it is coming from, but I find it just as bad as when the reports on Lamar came out daily.

    • paranormalgirl says:

      Actually, they do, if the doctor thinks it would be therapeutic.

    • lightpurple says:

      In my experience with hospitals in general, they all have visiting hours so most of the hospital is closed to visitors for part of the day to allow for doctors making rounds, tests to be run, general cleanup. The exception was the ICU where we could visit at any time but who could go in and the number of people who could go in at a time were limited and children’s wards where a parent might stay overnight. I’ve had an uncle and a sister-in-law in locked psychiatric wards and they followed the same visiting hours as the rest of the hospital. But we visited in a general area within that ward and weren’t allowed to bring in newspapers, magazines, books, tablets, and our phones had to be kept off in order to prevent triggers.

    • KWM says:

      Depends. But yes my sister in law was in a psych ward at the highest level and no one under 18 was allowed to visit, as the levels went down so did the visitation requirements.

  13. Green Is Good says:

    Countdown to Kim filing for divorce. So obvious.

    • Katie says:

      I truly hope not.

    • Tourmaline says:

      Agree, the upcoming US Weekly cover story is all about how their marital problems have been brewing for months, and US is a total mouthpiece of the Kardashians. The groundwork is being done for the inevitable divorce.

  14. Sophieb9 says:

    I’m just going to put it out there: How bad does the situation with Kanye have to be before the insurance coverage for all those cancelled concerts kicks in?

  15. NL says:

    Reminds me of that Britney Spears episode of South Park where the townspeople destroy her. There’s are mechanics to superstardom that not everyone can handle. The fame is all consuming. And you either sacrifice your personality to it and become your persona (Mariah, Kim), or you keep shape shifting personas to stay relevant and keep from being devoured (Madonna, for a time), or you live in that spotlight too long and your persona becomes transparent and all your flaws come to light. This is serious and sad and deeply personal, but here we all are commenting on it, you know?

    • Nancy says:

      The Britney comparison is spot on. The paps were relentless on destroying her and almost did with her fragile psyche. If not for the help she eventually received, who knows what would have happened to her. Shaving her head and busting out windows. But alas, she survived. Kim is strong but Kanye isn’t, and all the negativity will do nothing to help him. It should fade to black now and let him recover privately and gag all of these unknown sources. I am by no means a Kardashian cheerleader, but human life is fragile and deserves respect.

      • LAK says:

        Britney’s breakdown can’t be blamed on paps in the same way you can’t say Diana was driven to her death by paps.

        The paps made a difficult situation worse, but they weren’t the cauee of the situation.

        For a start, Britney was going through a very contentious divorce and custody battle. Rumour was that she was threatened with a request for a sample of her hair to prove her drug use which is why she shaved it off.

        She was hanging out with exploitative people wjo enabled her wordt habits and instincts. One of them, Sam Lofti, was found to be giving her a constant supply of drugs.

        Rather than keep to the quiet places and friends in LA, she deliberately hang out with fame thirsty people lije Paris and Lilo and went to pap heavy places and or called them to fibd her. She even dated one of the more notorious paps stalking her, Adnan whatshisname, who sent out a near daily commentary on her movements and state of mind under the guise of looking after Britney.

        Only when her parents stepped in were all these people removed from her life.

      • jwoolman says:

        LAK – if you mean her divorce from Federline, I doubt that the word “contentious” and “custody battle” are quite descriptive. He was legitimately worried about the safety of those children, especially when she was driving then (she had trouble even securing the seat belts and child carriers at that point) but never said a word against their mother. Even when he had to move for full custody because of her illness (she refused to let the kids go back to their dad after her time with them, and had taken the younger one with her into the bathroom and wouldn’t come out – very scary in her condition – that triggered the involuntary psych hold)), he always said it was temporary and he was confident they would be able to go back to 50/50 custody. When the judge banned her from even visitation, Federline allowed the kids to visit as long as she never drove with them and one of the grandparents was present. At that point, she was so ill that she wasn’t really able to interact with the kids but I’m sure their presence helped at some level. He also gave the grandparents full access to the kids. He really did everything right, in my opinion, during that crisis even though like most people he had no idea to do with a mentally ill wife while they were still married.

      • Neo says:

        I hadn’t thought of the Federline/Kim comparison but it’s apt. She could be done with the relationship, she could have been in the real for the press and finances, and still she might be decent about the kids, their marriage or divorce, and honestly concerned about his health. I’ve never heard it said about her that she’s malicious. In fact, on a personal level, she seems rather nice.

  16. EM says:

    He has been unstable for a while.

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      Average time from first manic/depressive episode to diagnosis averages six years.

      • paranormalgirl says:

        *nods* and sometimes longer if the episodes are not “dramatic”

      • Ashamed 2 b a Fl girl says:

        Probably longer if everyone around you keeps telling you that you are a genius.

      • jwoolman says:

        Can be much longer is the person is basically unipolar, suffering more from depression. They are more likely to just be considered “moody”, although nowadays people may be more aware of abnormal depression patterns.

  17. Thaisajs says:

    I’ve never been a hugely big fan of the Kardashians, but man, Kim is dealing with some major stuff. I feel incredibly sorry for her. She got tied up and robbed at knife point and then her husband has a mental collapse.

    But I also agree with PPers that gossip about this is coming from the Kardashian camp (or the many many hangers-on) and that’s not helping the situation.

  18. Nancy says:

    Everyone is being so cynical. The dude is sick and she is by his side as any wife would be. How this is a step towards divorce is beyond me. She really has been in Kardashian style hiding since her robbery in October. I think she is the one Kardashian that is getting over the show…the mother and Khloe will hold on for dear life. Only time will tell, but I can’t step on the toes of someone whose life right now is in crisis.

    • Chloeee says:

      Right? Sure, could be groundwork for divorce but I’m inclined to believe these events are legit and I feel bad for her.

      • Tulip Garden says:

        I cannot stand the K’s but I feel bad for her even if she is laying the ground work for divorce. Kanye is seriously mentally ill and it takes a special kind of love and fortitude for a relationship to withstand that. I am not suggesting it would make her a bad person.

    • Molly says:

      “The dude is sick and she is by his side as any wife would be.” Agreed. No one is critical of her being with him. It’s the constant communication with the press by either Kim or her mother as they spin his mental state to shape their current and future narrative.
      Kim may be over the show, but she will never, ever quench her thirst for attention.

      • Nancy says:

        Before Ray J and Ryan Seacrest made the Kardashians famous, Kim was a 19 year old wife to a non famous man and was disinherited by her father. At that point of her life, it doesn’t appear she had any quest for fame. It wasn’t until her marriage dissolved and mom found a way to finagle a tv show out of her daughter’s sex tape that this all started. Be careful what you wish for comes to mind.

      • LAK says:

        Nancy: that husband was a d-bag who kept her under control.

        There is video of teen Kim saying she wants to be famous and doesn’t care how she does it.

        After that divorce, she started hanging out with any and all famous peopke trying to become famous in her own right, eventually attaching herself to Paris and exploiting that until she surpassed her.

        Mario Lopez AND Nick Cannon spoke about how paps were called to record dates they were on with Kim.

        All this before Ray J was in the picture.

        As we know, Ray J was the right ingredient to make her famous, but she had been trying for years ahead of that event.

      • Nancy says:

        True. I do remember her hanging with Paris and getting all excited from the attention she was getting….with her original nose! Also Nick Lachey admitted his faux date with her and how the paps were called. She was a girl looking for something. That was then and this is now. She has more money than God and two marriages behind her, two kids and Kanye. As a mother I do feel for her, this can’t be easy, especially in front of the world, what she prayed for as a twenty something, she probably now dreads. For your comments above on Britney, I agree as well, although she was really hounded by the press and that with all you said, pushed her over the edge. She was so young and couldn’t handle the fame.

        @ LAK

        Name one guy Kim or any Kardashian has dated/married that wasn’t painted as the “bad guy” after break up? We don’t really know if Kim’s first husband was a d-bag. That is what the Kardashians put out there. He was nice enough to fund her first ever lip suction though ! LOL.

        Anyways, there is no way Kim is going to stay married to Kanye. In fact, it might have been her wanting to separate that pushed him over the edge. Who knows? I don’t see Kim as the “caring wife” type just based on how she treated Rob (someone she has known her whole life).

      • Nancy says:

        Geez this has to be my last post on this, getting obsessed. Reggie was her true love (I think) and he dumped her. As far as comparing Rob to Kanye, there is just so much I could say……brother v husband….oranges to apples.

      • me says:


        Kim and her family dogged Reggie severely after the break up. It was on their show. All one-sided of course. No, I think it is fair to compare Rob and Kanye. Kim basically told Rob to “snap out of it”. Do you think when it comes to Kanye she’s any more supportive? She has known Rob her whole life. A caring person is a caring person period.

      • LAK says:

        Me: his physical abuse of her was detailed in court papers. Along with the cosmetic procedures he insisted she have.

        The physical abuse is listed in detail, not in abstract terms.

        Please see the documents embedded in this DM (yes i know, but receipts!!) article.

        Whilst they lie for publicity and career, i really doubt she would lie in court documents at that young an age when she hadn’t perfected her public persona.

    • HappyMom says:

      New story out that they’ve been separated for a few weeks.

    • Scout says:

      MTE. I still can’t get over people saying this is all an elaborate insurance scam. Human decency goes out the window when it comes to Kim. I don’t watch their show(s) and I have many issues with them but I just don’t understand how nasty people can be.

      • yuck says:

        There’s a huge amount of money on the line here. They wouldn’t be the first to hype a situation for insurance purposes.

      • Scout says:

        @yuck the Kardashians are filthy rich. They came from money and have built an empire, as baffling as it may sound. Kanye signed a deal with ADIDAS in June that has the potential to net him over a BILLION. They already have retail stores in the works to be opened all over the world that will exclusively sell his Yeezy collection. He will also be designing baseball and basketball uniforms for professional sports teams. He doesn’t need money, he’s loaded and that’s not even taking into account his wife’s fortune.

  19. Lalu says:

    Gah, I cannot stand Kanye but this makes me sick for him. I really hope he gets better soon.
    I cannot imagine the kids being around him as being any more harmful than anyone else in that family. And I really mean that. His kids are going to need him to get his head on straight so he can look out for them.

  20. Josefina says:

    Aw, poor Kim.

  21. Anna says:

    The amount of constant stories being planted/leaked by Kris and Kim about a man they supposedly love is reprehensible. Their usual EXPLOITATION of any man who enters the fray. The old saying, “with friends like these, who needs enemies comes to mind. If I were in Kanye’s shoes and this were my support system, I’d be mega-paranoid. After all, the tales being told about this HIIPA protected matter warrant it. Once he’s out to find out what they’ve been up to, trust will surely be broken for good. And to drag the kids into it…ARGH

  22. Susan says:

    Why couldn’t Kim just live at her own home with her kids and her team of nannies and assorted other staff? She is a 35=year old, multimillionaire woman who ought to be able to live on her “own” (not really because of the staff). I don’t understand about the speculation that she is probably at home with Kris or should be.

    • swak says:

      It’s not speculation. It has been reported that she moved back to Kris’s house after the robbery because Kanye was on tour and never home. They have lived. probably, less than a year in their own home.

  23. Helena says:

    I think he totally lost his mind and did not responded to medication yet. I think irs a psychotic breakdown, some patient do get back with proper meds and time, others dont. And I think the PR people are starting to make it look as bad as it is in fact because Kim’s scared and wants out. Like “looks, that’s smoke, maybe it s a fire”, then they’ll go “look! There s fire indeed, lets all run The farther we can”.

    • Ashamed 2 b a Fl girl says:

      It can take weeks to see if a psych med works, and if it doesn’t, more weeks to adjust that med. A month would seem to be about normal. Most insurance will cover a 28 day psych stay. It takes time. I think the K’s are rushing the narrative.

      • Madailein says:

        It can take up to a month to see if certain psych meds, like antidepressants, will work. But it takes much less time to be somewhat stabilized on an antipsychotic drug: many people can be brought out of a psychosis within 24 hours, depending on how deep the psychosis is, and on what caused it. B/c we don’t know Kanye’s exact diagnosis, it’s impossible to ascertain how quickly he’ll resurface from a psychotic state—if indeed he is actually in one.

      • Mltpsych says:

        I don’t know where you live but in the US insurance gets you out of the hospital ASAP

  24. Verona says:

    This is disgusting….where are all these leaks and information coming out from? I’m pretty sure it’s not from the hospital staff or doctors, these are directly from the Kardashians. It amazes me that all their plastic surgery procedures are kept confidential while Kanyes and Lamars health records and mental records are all public knowledge down to every detail. Nothing is sacred with these witches anymore.

    • minx says:

      That is so true! Heaven forbid anyone tell the truth about the K’s plastic surgery. But husbands’ drug problems/breakdown–fair game.
      So despicable.

    • me says:

      100% agree. Look, if Kim was actually planning on staying married to Kanye we wouldn’t be hearing about all these “leaked” stories. It would stay super secret. She is going to divorce him and is therefore starting her narrative. Thus we have daily “updates”.

  25. jerkface says:

    I hope he gets better. I really, really do.

  26. aenflex says:

    The Kardashians are disgusting, perhaps with the exception of Kourtney. I can’t stand Kanye West, and I never imagined I would be feeling badly for him. But I almost do. His mental illness should not be publicized like this unless he chooses to publicize it.

  27. Janie says:

    Anyone remember when “Amber Rose” disclosed that Kanye could not perform unless SHE was there with him! A pattern. Needy guy!!! Ugg!

  28. coffeeisgood says:

    I don’t think Kim will divorce him, at least not in the near future. Kim strikes me as a ride or die for Kanye. I think the robbery was a real wake up call for her, and I don’t think she is going back to the reality show or social media anytime soon.

  29. mark wilson says:

    What happened to patient privacy? Did he consent to having all this information being leaked to the press by his in laws?

  30. GinGia says:

    Kayne has been more noticeably unstable since his mothers’ passing but, as we have all predicted, the K’s have added to his mental instability.

  31. jwoolman says:

    Notice that we aren’t seeing the usual flurry of pap shots since the robbery. This confirms the idea that the paps swarm all over Kim because she calls them and tells them where she and and/or her daughter are. When Kim really wants privacy, all she has to do is stop calling the paps. Then she can easily move around without being photographed. It also means she was deliberately calling paps on her little girl even though Nori has made it clear she’s disturbed by it. The nannies apparently were told to let the paps get the money shots, which is why we so often saw Nori separated from any caregiver. They were deliberately holding back and letting Nori face the paps alone.

    We can always hope all this has made Kim rethink some of her habits. Sometimes trauma can do that.

  32. MrsK says:

    He has every reason to be paranoid with a wife andmother-in-law who can’t seem to keep their mouths shut. Does he know that after she spends hours at his bedside, she spends many more hours giving minute-by-minute updates to tmz about what a superwoman she is?

    I don’t understand how these people are incapable of even minimal discretion.

  33. swak says:

    DM reporting that Kanye has been released and is at home. So much for Kim worrying about him being around the children.

  34. Hulrs says:

    A house divided can not stand. It was only a matter of time before the Kanye that wrote Gold Digger and the Kanye that had to play the Kardashian game could no longer coexist.

  35. geneva says:

    I have weighed in on this because I had to take my former boyfriend to a hospital after extreme paranoia had him convinced some terrible things were happening to his loved ones and himself. He was hearing voices, shouting in this head, he thought he heard over a loudspeaker that all his loved ones had died. He was in his late 30s then so too old when szchizophrenia normally hits people. It was called a ‘psychotic break from reality.’ He did recover in many, many ways but not without medication. Not to defend or know what Kim Kardashian is like but I think she might legitimately be scared as it is very scary to be with someone going through it…in part because it has so many violent thoughts and persecution and paranoia is so unwieldy.

    I once told someone about that experience and he was a merchant marine who spent his life on ships. I asked him if this kind of thing ever happens on ships far offshore. He said yep. I asked what they do..he said ‘you get the person off your ship.’ In other words, sometimes a break from reality is just frigging dangerous for all.

  36. tekla says:

    I had a mental breakdown about 1,5 year ago, it was severe paranoia and psychosis due to drugs and exhaustion. I heard voices and had “fake memories”. Now I’m fine and I don’t do meth anymore, only some prescription drugs, but it turns out I have borderline disorder. I really feel for the poor guy, because it’s really hard to live when you feel like people are out to get you, but I do suspect he did some coke or something. Real, deep mental breakdowns don’t just come crushing on you out of the blue. There must be reasons, usually a combination of altered brain chemistry and stress. I hope my english is fine
