Kim Kardashian Defuses ‘Time Bomb’ Kanye West Amid Divorce Rumors & Family Showdown: Rapper Melts Hearts With North

Kanye West has succeeded in turning wife Kim Kardashian West’s life into something that, if it were a reality TV show, would be titled Keeping Up with Kanye West. From meltdowns to Twitter tirades to album lyrics attracting a backlash, Kim has been struggling to rein in West. Now, with rumors swirling that she plans to divorce Kanye, Kardashian is feeling stabbed in the back by none other than her own sisters Kylie Jenner and Kendall Jenner, according to Radar Online.

Launched by Glu Mobile, Kendall & Kylie is a mobile game similar to Kim’s own game. Kardashian fought back to steal the attention by flaunting a photo of her cleavage online almost simultaneously, which a Kardashian insider told Radar was a desperate attempt to re-focus attention on Kim.

“Of course Kim is bothered by her sisters’ success,” added the insider. “Why else do you think that she would go [and] post a photo of her boobs today?”

The competition didn’t stop there. With Kardashian also getting attention for her braids, Kylie flaunted her own new braided look that’s almost a mirror image of Kim’s.

“Kim cannot stand that Kylie always tries to steal her thunder lately,” noted the insider. “She thinks that the fact that Kylie went to braids the day that she got her braids undone and went back to brunette is just ridiculous!”

But it’s more than a mobile game and a hairstyle that has Kardashian feeling upset lately. While Kanye has known problems with impulse control, venting on Twitter to an extent that even has some of his pals concerned, Kim wants to control everything. And that means that if a publicity stunt occurs that affects her, Kardashian gets irate.

“Kim carefully plans all of her own publicity stunts, so anything that disrupts her ultimate plan really puts her over the edge,” revealed the insider.

But has Kanye recognized that Kardashian is at the breaking point? As the Inquisitr reported, the friction West has caused in their marriage has pushed Kim to the verge of divorce, according to sources.

Kanye even went to anger management class to learn techniques, but they don’t seem to be effective anymore, one source told Radar Online.

“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. Lately he’s been going off about everything β€” he’s a ticking time bomb and insufferable to be around.”

But both West and Kardashian seem to be making attempts to change Kanye’s image by revealing his sweet side. With a quick shift from engaging in feuds on social media to charming as a loving father, West shared an adorable picture of his daughter North West, complete with a heart-melting caption, reported the Daily Mail.

The photo shows North mingling with the big folks.

“My Heart,” summed up Kanye for the caption.

Can the sweetness erase the memory that his followers have of those Twitter rants and tantrums? West recently got slammed for giving himself credit for the success of Taylor Swift and declaring that Bill Cosby is not guilty. He also claimed to have $53 million of personal debt and melted down prior to his Saturday Night Live performance.

How is Keeping Up with the Kardashians momager Kris Jenner reacting to all this? Get ready for another family showdown.

Kris wants a public relations team to take charge of Kanye, revealed a source to Page Six.

“He’s damaging the Kardashian brand…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,” said the source.

But Kim seems to be trying to do her own brand of damage control. Kardashian shared a sweet photo showing West slumbering next to North. Both daddy Kanye and daughter North got pooped out on a shopping expedition, reported ET.

Kim chronicled what happened in a series of tweets.

Kardashian quickly discovered the adorable reason why the duo was so silent.
