Kim Kardashian may have been spotted without her wedding ring during an outing with Brittny Gastineau in Los Angeles earlier this week, but according to new reports, she and Kanye West are not on the verge of a split.
Although rumors have been ongoing when it comes to the future of Kim Kardashian’s marriage to the rapper, two new reports have suggested that the 36-year-old reality star is dedicated to working on her marriage and sorting through her alleged issues with West.
“[Kim Kardashian] and Kanye have to work at their marriage, just like any couple. Of course there are some bumps in the road at times, but that’s not unlike any other marriage. It takes work,” a source told Entertainment Tonight on December 19, according to a report by Yahoo! TV. “They are definitely still together and more madly in love than ever.”
As X17 Online revealed to readers on December 18, Kim Kardashian’s wedding ring was noticeably absent as she sat in the driver’s seat of a silver Range Rover with her friend in the passenger’s seat and her two children, daughter North West, 3, and son Saint West, 1, in the back.
Around the time of Kim Kardashian’s outing with her kids and friend, she and Kanye West embarked on what appeared to be a romantic dinner in Santa Monica, California. According to the Entertainment Tonight report, Kim Kardashian and her husband were spotted together on Sunday night.
“When [Kim Kardashian] got to the car, she paused and made it a point to look back at [Kanye] and make sure he was OK,” an eyewitness said, also revealing that the couple arrived with three bodyguards. “She looked strong and so happy.”
“You can see it in the way they were that they were making a point to say, ‘We are solid,'” the eyewitness added. “They were smiling, completely at ease and just enjoying each other.”
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have been dealing with some serious issues. In October, Kim Kardashian was robbed in her Paris apartment, and several of her pricey pieces of jewelry were stolen. Then, just weeks later, West suffered what has been referred to as a breakdown, which left the rapper hospitalized for several days in Los Angeles.
According to a second report regarding Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s relationship, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star is ready to do whatever it takes to make their marriage work for the sake of their children, North and Saint.
“They’re actually doing better,” an insider explained to the Daily Mail on December 20. “It was obviously a bit tough when everything went down and it was confusing with the stuff going on. But they’re doing better now.”
“Despite the fact that logic tells her the best thing to do would be to move on, the other side of that is that she has children with him now,” the source continued. “Kim told me, ‘It’s not just about me, it’s about the kids.’ So she wants to make it work. The only issue right now is he needs more time to recover and get better so she wants to wait and see how it goes.”
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West became engaged during an elaborate on-camera proposal at the AT&T Stadium in San Francisco, California in late 2013. Then, months later, they tied the knot in a romantic ceremony in Italy, which was attended by only their close friends and family members.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have not yet directly addressed the ongoing rumors regarding their potential split.
