Kim Kardashian, star of Keeping Up With The Kardashians and selfies that broke the Internet, and Kanye West, rapper and blossoming fashion designer, rank high on the list of celebrity couples who are reported to have marriage problems hiding within the walls of their mansions. Among the rumored causes of their relationship woes are Kim’s obsession with weight loss and Kanye’s desire for some freedom to spend time away from his family.
Although Kardashian enjoyed a trip to Mexico with her children, she was upset with West for not joining them. The two also have been battling over the 35-year-old reality TV star’s busy schedule, sources told Hollywood Life.
Kanye opted to watch Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz fight in UFC 202 rather than visit with his wife and children, and although Kim does want to respond to his craving for separate time away from the clan, it reportedly still upsets her.
“[Kim] would rather [Kanye] spend time with her and the kids on vacation than going to Las Vegas.”
In addition, West has been pleading with Kardashian to make more room in her schedule for the rapper and their children, causing his absence from the family vacation to appear even more upsetting, according to the insider. Kim sent out a sexy message by twerking and sharing a hot video on social media, but Kanye didn’t even respond by joining her in Mexico.
Amid the questions about the absence of West on Kardashian’s vacation to Mexico, an insider told Radar Online that Kim is “livid” about her husband’s need to spend time away from his family.
“Kim is absolutely livid right now because Kanye told her he wanted space!”
Although the 38-year-old rapper has teamed up with the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star to try to hold onto their marriage and “protect” their youngsters North and Saint, West also informed her that he needs to head out of town for some business trips.
“Kim is freaking out because Kanye told her that he needed to go alone,” shared the source. “He did not ask her to go with him.”
In addition, Kardashian has caused problems in their marriage because of her intense focus on her weight loss, according to a source cited by Hollywood Life.
West feels that Kardashian is overdoing it by repeatedly weighing herself multiple times every day after disrobing, added the source.
“He thinks it’s crazy that she’s always taking off all her clothes and jewelry to weigh herself at least four times a day.”
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star’s focus on her weight loss reportedly has caused battles because her husband cannot comprehend her obsession, while Kardashian feels upset that West won’t support her post-pregnancy battle of the bulge.
Kim informed Kanye that he was “selfish and unsupportive” during their fight, according to the source. She then moved out, taking herself and her children to her mother Kris Jenner’s home.
The fight between the two is seen as a symptom of their marriage problems, with West focused on his career and Kardashian focused on her weight loss, according to Hollywood Life.
“Their attention is clearly not on each other anymore, and this has been making their blowup fights even worse.”
With West focused on his tour, Kardashian reportedly increasingly feels that she has slipped on his list of priorities. But the question remains as to whether time will help heal the rift over his craving for freedom and her obsession with her weight.
