Kim Kardashian does not typically find herself the object of pity or ridicule. But the queen of the Keeping Up With The Kardashians now is in a position where some feel sorry for her. And the person responsible for Kim’s humiliation? Husband Kanye West, creator of Twitter rants, public meltdowns, and album lyrics that are attracting outrage.
For Kardashian, recent events that have garnered Kanye some harsh headlines have become a wake-up call that West has serious impulse control problems, a source told People.
“Kanye, once in a while, goes on public rants and [Kardashian family members] are all very understanding that it’s exhausting for Kim. It’s like a tick that he has,” revealed the source.
But Kardashian is concerned about that ticking time bomb that’s become her husband.
“[West has trouble] controlling his impulses,” added the source. “Kim just wants him to calm down and stop.”
That’s not so easy, added the insider, who revealed that Kanye seems unable to control himself, and when he gets going on a rant or meltdown, he can’t stop himself.
“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. Kanye might seem mentally unstable at times [and] has a problem controlling his impulses.”
It’s not just Kim who is worried about West, however. Momager Kris Jenner is stressing that Kanye is damaging the reputation of the Keeping Up With The Kardashians brand, revealed a source cited by Times Live.
“His Twitter rants are out of control, and Kris fears that he’s taking the family down. Kris wants Kanye to hire someone to handle all the noise and drama so he can focus on being an artist,” shared the source.
But can that handler prevent West from turning to Twitter to rant? Kanye just lashed out in yet another series of tweets, attempting to defend himself against that criticism that resulted from his lyrics alleging he gets credit for Taylor Swift’s fame.
”I did not diss Taylor Swift and I’ve never dissed her… First thing is I’m an artist and as an artist I will express how I feel with no censorship,” tweeted an irate West.
With so much tension caused by Kanye, Kardashian is getting closer to the point of divorce, according to Radar Online.
“Lately [West has] been going off about everything — he’s a ticking time bomb and insufferable to be around,” an insider told Radar.
At this point, Kardashian can’t take much more, added the source.
“Kim’s sick of it,” said the insider.
As for those proclamations that Kanye is deep in debt? Kardashian has the power to erase any money problems, pointed out Yahoo.
I write this to you my brothers while still 53 million dollars in personal debt… Please pray we overcome… This is my true heart…

With mobile games, apps, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, and personal appearances boosting the Kardashian money flow, Kim has no worries about debt. But does that mean she won’t help West, or could it be that he’s fabricating his financial status?
Among the signs that Kardashian and West have no money woes, the couple is building a backyard pool as part of their remodel for their $20 million mansion, reported the Daily Mail, which cited an insider noting that Kim and Kanye enjoy a luxurious lifestyle.
“They both make a ton of money but they also spend a ton,” said the insider.
Despite the plans to create a mega-mansion, Kardashian has decided to give West an ultimatum by drawing up divorce papers with her lawyer, revealed an insider cited by Radar Online.
“[Kim] instructed [her attorney] to get everything in order so if she decides to end the marriage, she’s ready to go,” said the insider. “And she told Kanye he has one final chance to change his ways or she’s going to file for divorce.”
