Kim Kardashian and Kanye West seem united in so many ways, from their passion for fashion to their love for their children. But behind the scenes, signs that the golden couple may be having problems that could tarnish their marriage are emerging.
Kardashian and West are described as struggling with the decision over whether to have a third child, with Radar Online claiming that "baby number three may push them over the edge." But the 35-year-old mom and 38-year-old dad of North, 3, and her 8-month-old brother Saint reportedly are careful to save their battles for when the cameras are turned off.
Kim's Daughter Feels 'Rejected'?It's not just the decision to have a third child that is causing problems, however, because Kardashian also focuses on Saint much more than North, a Kardashian family insider told Radar. In response to those feelings of rejection, her tiny daughter has decided that she needs a sister on her team. "North is just so completely over her little brother that she has been telling Kim that she now wants a sister," revealed the source.
"[North] has just been feeling so rejected by her mom lately."Radar alleges that Kardashian has been focusing on Saint because she uses him to boost the ratings for Keeping Up With The Kardashians. The little boy's mother reportedly viewed her son as a useful method to help the reality TV show survive after the ratings plunged.
North Becomes A Daddy's GirlIn addition to requesting a sister, the 3-year-old daughter of the famous reality TV couple reportedly has come up with a solution for the lack of love from Kardashian.
And that's when the battle blew up, according to the insider.
"Kim refuses to have another child and the fact that Kanye would even suggest this made her livid!"As for paying attention to her daughter's desire to have a baby sister? Kardashian isn't taking that request into consideration, added the source.
Couple Clashes Over Career Versus CaringIn addition, Kardashian has battled with her husband over whether their professional goals are more important than taking time to show love for their family. Earlier this month, Keeping Up With The Kardashians aired an episode revealing the couple's clash over Mother's Day, reported the Daily Mail.
Kanye was furious when he learned that Kim had scheduled her life to spend Mother's Day in New York rather than devote the day to her husband and two children. Multi-tasking her reality TV career with her mothering work is a familiar game for Kardashian, but Mother's Day should take priority, in her husband's view.The rapper proved he knows the art of sarcasm with his response to Kardashian's Mother's Day schedule.
"Are we going with you or you just don't wanna see your husband and children on Mother's Day?"In turn, Kim showed she understands the importance of compromises by changing her work schedule in order to spend Mother's Day with her children and husband. He made it worthwhile by arranging for an orchestra's string section to provide his wife with a private performance.
The happy ending to the clash occurred when Kardashian discovered the special performance playing in her living room as well as dozens of roses awaiting her on a bench.
Selections from the orchestra included songs from the family-friendly movie Annie, such as "Tomorrow" and "Hard Knock Life."
