The insider said, “Kim flew to Wyoming to plead with Kanye to get help and try and figure out some sort of resolution for the two of them and their family. Kim has always tried to be there for, support, and help Kanye in any way she can, but the way he has been acting and behaving in recent months has taken a toll on her and become a huge burden.”
The source added, “Kim and Kanye have talked about the possibility of ending their marriage.”
Another source told the magazine, “Kim has wanted to make this marriage work and so has Kanye. They both still love each other and there is still some interest in making this marriage work, but in recent months it has looked way less likely.”
An insider at People shared more details, saying, “Kim feels trapped. She loves Kanye and she thinks of him as the love of her life. But she doesn't know what to do.”
Of her return to L.A., the source said, “Kim was thinking that they need to be apart. She knows that it's not healthy for her to be around him now, and it's honestly not healthy for the kids. He needs to get his stuff together before he can be any sort of partner or father.”
She still supports him, the insider said: “Kim wants the best for Kanye. And she will always want what's best for him.”
Kim flew to Wyoming after Kanye publicly apologized to his wife for hurting her. West, who announced he is running for president, had recently told a crowd at a campaign rally that they considered aborting their daughter North, followed by tweets that Kim was trying to have him locked up. The rapper also tweeted about wanting a divorce.
She showed her support with an Instagram post acknowledging his bipolar diagnosis and writing, “Those who are close with Kanye know his heart and understand his words sometimes do not align with his intentions.”
The couple, who wed in 2014, are parents to North, 7, Saint, 4, Chicago, 2, and Psalm, 14 months.
