Is Kim Kardashian fed up with the negativity surrounding her rapper husband? Following a number of outbursts on Twitter, and a caught-on-camera rant during a Saturday Night Live appearance, a source claims Kim Kardashian wants Kanye West to seek anger management.
“Kanye has never handled stress well, but for a while he could keep things under control because of the tools he learned in anger management,” an insider told Radar Online on February 19. “Lately he’s been going off about everything — he’s a ticking time bomb and insufferable to be around.”
As West continues to bring not-so-favorable attention to herself and her family, Kim Kardashian is reportedly hoping her husband will go back to treatment, and his former co-writer, Rhymefest, agrees. Days ago, following the release of West’s Taylor Swift diss track, “Famous,” Rhymefest, who worked with West on “Jesus Walks” and “New Slaves,” told his Twitter followers that his “brother needs help, in the form of counseling. Spiritual & mental.”
“[Kim Kardashian]’s sick of it,” said the Radar Online insider. “[She] desperately wants him to get back into a program where he can work on himself.”

Kim Kardashian and West began dating a short time after her second divorce from Kris Humphries, and in June 2013, they welcomed their first child together, daughter North West. Then, in May 2014, Kim Kardashian tied the knot in Italy, where they were joined by a select few members of their friends and family, including Kim Kardashian’s sisters, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian, and Kendall and Kylie Jenner.
Following about a year of wedded bliss, Kim Kardashian and West chose to further expand their family, and in December 2015, their second child, son Saint West, was born.
The birth of Saint West marked the fifth grandchild for Kim Kardashian’s mom, who is also grandmother to North, 2, and Kourtney’s three kids, Mason, 6; Penelope, 3; and Reign, 1.

As divorce rumors continue to swirl, a source claims that despite Kim Kardashian’s “rough” week, the reality star and mother of two has no plans to part ways with her husband.
“It’s been a rough week for [Kim Kardashian],” a Keeping Up With the Kardashians source told People Magazine on February 19. “She has lots of support from her family though… Everyone knows that Kanye, once in a while, goes on public rants and they are all very understanding that it’s exhausting for Kim. It’s like a tick that he has.”
During a lifestream earlier this week, Kim Kardashian was seen chatting with her longtime best friend, Jonathan Cheban, who joked about West’s frequent rants when the word “chillax” was brought up.
“It’s so 1997, I’m, like, embarrassed,” Cheban said. “Thank God Kanye’s not in the car, or he would’ve had a ‘chillax’ rant.”
The People Magazine source went on to reveal that while West has gone off a number of times recently, there may be more to come, as when he rants, he really, really rants.
“When he starts his rants, it’s very difficult for him to stop. When he starts venting, it’s like he needs to get it all out,” the source says. “Kanye might seem mentally unstable at times, but there has never been any concern for [Kim Kardashian], or the kids. Kanye just has a problem controlling his impulses.”
