Kim Kardashian, queen of selfies and star of Keeping Up With The Kardashians (KUWTK), is reportedly at war with her rapper/fashion designer husband Kanye West. The two are described as having problems ranging from his most recent fashion show to how to raise their children, North and Saint.

For the KUWTK star, protecting her daughter North means doing all she can to avoid having the now 3-year-old to get bullied in school, while West feels that education needs to be center stage, according to a source cited by In Touch.
Kim, 35, and Kanye, 39, reportedly have discussed whether North should attend a regular school, with the concerned mom fearful of what could happen to her youngster. As a result, the two allegedly have been feuding, revealed the insider.
“[Kim is] terrified that the other kids will pick on North because she is so famous!”
The source also pointed out that the 3-year-old is at an age to get enrolled in a Pre-K class. However, that move into the school system has not yet occurred, with the KUWTK star’s family siding with her against West.
“North is at the age where she could be enrolled in Pre-K and she is not. Kim’s family thinks that it is in her best interests to not be in school,” noted the insider. “Kanye is extremely upset about this because he wants his kids to have top-of-the line education.”
But the reality TV star disagrees with West, contending that her children don’t even have to attend a formal school.
“Kim said that she could care less whether or not her kids go to school because she thinks they do not necessarily need to,” added the source.
There is a precedence for this no-school decision in the family because Kourtney Kardashian has three children who have avoided attending regular school thus far.
It isn’t just in the educational area that the 35-year-old mom of North and Saint and her rapper husband are experiencing stress in their relationship, however. As part of his ongoing quest to become the king of the fashion world, Kanye staged another fashion show that caused tension with both his wife and some other members of the KUWTK clan, reported the Daily Mail.

For Kardashian, sitting front and center at West’s fashion displays is part of her wifely duties, but apparently, most of her family decided they didn’t want to sign up for the task. Although Kendall and Kylie Jenner joined their big sister in showing support for Kanye’s Yeezy Season 4 show, both Kourtney and Khloe and their mother Kris Jenner opted out.
However, some reviewers felt that those skipping it didn’t miss much, with negative reviews terming it a “total disaster” and a “hot mess.”
In the wake of that harsh criticism, West felt deeply disappointed that some of his wife’s sisters and his mother-in-law Kris decided not to attend, a source told People.
“It was a big disappointment to Kanye. [He] has been very stressed about his fashion show,” revealed the insider.
“[Kanye] is a perfectionist and was a nightmare before the show.”
All that stress spilled over onto West’s wife, according to the source, who described her as “definitely annoyed.”
But will the after-effects of the stress, tension, and disappointing reviews hit the family’s reality TV show? Radar Online reports that Kardashian “wants out” of KUWTK, noting that the lesson from West’s fashion extravaganza is that not all publicity is good publicity.
The 35-year-old reality TV star felt “utterly embarrassed” by Kanye’s fashion show, and her KUWTK family is “really worried” about her, a source told Radar.
“Kim has already given up so much for Kanye that she is at her breaking point.”
Although Kardashian has issued threats that she will leave KUWTK previously, the low rating this time around may make a difference, according to Radar. However, West’s wife may have contract negotiations ahead if she does decide this is the time to exit the reality TV series.
The contract with E! is estimated at $100 million, and because it reportedly lasts until 2019, Kardashian might experience some problems breaking free of KUWTK‘s golden handcuffs.
As for how West feels about it?
“Kanye told Kim that he wants her to leave the show and that she should get out before the ratings crash even more,” added the insider. “At this point, she just wants it to be done with it.”
