What happened between Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West?

Things began to go south for Kim and Kanye when the rapper held a presidential rally where he revealed that he and Kim almost aborted their oldest daughter, North West. Shortly after that, Kanye went on a Twitter rampage, claiming that Kim tried to lock him up.

“Kim tried to bring a doctor to lock me up with a doctor,” he wrote in a now-deleted tweet. “If I get locked up like Mandela… Ya’ll will know why.”

“Kriss don’t play with me,” he wrote in a follow-up tweet. “You and that Calmye are not allowed around my children. Ya’ll tried to lock me up.”

He went on to allege that the Kardashians were trying to imprison him.

“Kim was trying to fly to Wyoming with a doctor to lock me up like on the movie ‘Get Out’ because I cried about saving my daughter’s life yesterday,” he wrote.

But one of the things that shocked fans the most was when he revealed that things hadn’t been good between him and Kim for a while.

“I been trying to get divorced since Kim met with Meek at the [Waldorf] for prison reform,” he said.

How are Kim and Kanye working toward a better marriage?

Since the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has shut down most large gatherings, Kim and Kanye have been able to spend a lot of time together and they are using this time to better their marriage.

“The couple has been spending a lot of quality time together with their kids and family,” a source recently told Entertainment Tonight. “They’ve been trying to spend time in places that are slower or more calm like Colorado so they can enjoy their time without worrying about paparazzi or fans interrupting.

“The couple knows they have to work on things, but they’re putting in the effort, all while busy with their own work and continuing to grow their brands,” the source continued.

The pair has been sharing pictures of them laughing and playing with their four children. Though nonessential travel has been advised against, the couple has traveled to the Dominican Republic together and also spent some time bonding in Colorado.

“The couple still makes time for one another when they can, but they aren’t strangers to spending periods of time apart because they’re both so busy,” the source said. “Couples go through up and downs but Kim and Kanye have love for one another that others can’t always see.”

The downtime has been the perfect way for the couple to reconnect. But as the world reopens and West continues campaigning to win the 2020 presidential election, it only stands to reason that more stressors will make their way back into the couple’s life.
