In the meantime, Kardashian, 39, is "waiting" for this rough patch "to pass," the insider shared. If the 43-year-old — who announced he would be running for president in August — cannot work on his issues, then the KKW Beauty founder has "divorce options planned out if it comes to that."
The couple share four children together — North, 7, Saint, 4, Chicago, 2, and Psalm, 16 months — and have been going through several ups and downs ever since West's first presidential rally, which took place in South Carolina in July.
In one of his speeches, the rapper revealed that Kardashian was ready to abort their first child.
Afterward, the Grammy winner continued to hurt his family. First, he claimed that his mother-in-law, Kris Jenner, tried to "lock me up" and that Kardashian was trying to divorce him in a series of tweets.
Fortunately, the dad of four owned up to his mistakes on social media.
"I would like to apologize to my wife Kim for going public with something that was a private matter," he wrote on Twitter. "I did not cover her like she has covered me. To Kim I want to say I know I hurt you. Please forgive me. Thank you for always being there for me."
After the pair made up, they went to the Dominican Republic to work on their marriage and spend some quality time together. "He finally suggested they go away for a while with the kids — and that time together made all the difference," a source told OK!. "They had a lot of issues to iron out, and the beautiful surroundings definitely helped ease the tension."
But earlier this month, West went on another Twitter rant. This time, West vented about the music industry and the contracts he's had to sign. The troubled rapper also shared a video where he peed on a Grammy trophy, which was his unique way of protesting. As a result, West declared that he won't be releasing any new tunes until his current contracts are terminated.
Kardashian isn't too worried about the tweets, but rather, West's "mood swings and the manic episodes," the insider told the outlet, adding that it's "extremely difficult for Kim to help Kanye cope."
The insider also revealed that makeup mogul was "sad" and "disappointed" that her husband has been going into a "downward spiral" recently. "It’s a vicious cycle that Kim has had success at interrupting successfully for months at a time," the source revealed. "Being isolated and alone essentially in his head isn’t healthy for Kanye."
