Kim Kardashian and Kanye West first met in the early 2000s when they were both up-and-coming in their respective industries. Kardashian and West became fast friends but did not date, although West might have had a bit of a crush on Kardashian for some time, even referencing her in a few of his songs. Their relationship did not turn romantic until 2012, after Kardashian ended her brief, 72-day marriage to basketball player Kris Humphries. 

Kardashian and West started dating, and later that same year, they announced that they were expecting a baby. In June 2013, the couple welcomed their first child, and in October 2013, the couple got engaged. Their extravagant wedding in May 2014 was relatively private, and while the ceremony itself wasn’t filmed for the family’s reality show, the preparations for the wedding caused massive fan excitement. In the years since, Kardashian and West have welcomed three more children together and built a life that is the envy of many. However, it is possible that there is trouble in paradise.

Kanye West’s mental health issues have reportedly caused a strain

Kanye West has long had a history of erratic behavior, but in the past few years, it has become more pronounced. In 2016, West was hospitalized for mental exhaustion and odd behavior, and he was forced to cancel the remainder of his concert tour. While Kardashian was supportive of her husband and immediately went into crisis management mode, sources stated that it was a “stressful time” for the couple. 

West’s behavior continued to spiral, and as he caused more controversy, Kardashian remained supportive – in public, that is. West even rapped about her reaction to some of his behavior in a song called “Wouldn’t Leave,” where he sings: “My wife callin’, screamin’, say, ‘We ’bout to lose it all!'” While Kardashian has acknowledged that she has “different views” than West, she has not spoken directly about any possible marital problems. Still, a new report could reveal that the couple has actually been growing apart for quite some time.

It’s no secret that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West love architecture and luxurious homes. Recently, it was reported that the couple splurged and purchased their fourth home on the same street in Los Angeles. The four-bedroom home is designed in a split style, with a pool and spa attached. Sources for the story said that all of West and Kardashian’s friends know that they sleep in separate bedrooms, and sometimes, entirely different houses. The source also added that the couple doesn’t like to talk about that fact publicly and have every intention of living their own lives.

While some couples do live long and happy marriages while sleeping in separate bedrooms, it could certainly be a sign of the distance between the pair. It seems unlikely that either Kardashian or West will ever talk about it since they seem committed to putting on a united front for the press, but it certainly has fans talking.
