For a little while, nobody could doubt the connection between Kim Kardashian West and her now-husband Kanye West. In fact, the couple seemed to have so much chemistry, fans of the reality TV family thought they might have been a thing before Kim was officially single.
But reality TV stars are still human, and every relationship has it ups and downs. According to one anonymous source, Kim and Kanye are working through some things right now, and they’re reportedly using therapy to do it.
Kim and Kanye have been through counseling before, though not always for relationship reasons. In 2016, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians couple was seeking therapy, but not together as a couple.
At the time, the Wests were said to be attending individual therapy. Kim was said to be seeing a therapist to work through the trauma of being robbed at gunpoint in Paris. Kanye was reportedly seeking help for feelings of depression and to learn how to deal with stress.
The following year, in 2017, sources reported that Kim and Kanye had officially entered therapy together to work through issues that had begun to affect their relationship. Sources claimed that Kim had hired a team of counseling professionals to be standing by should she ever need to reach out for help dealing with Kanye while his on tour.
Sources said the sessions were sometimes centered around Kanye’s anger issues, teaching Kim how to avoid setting him off when he was at home.
While there may not be very much proof of these anonymous claims, they are concerning when compared to some very public issues between Kim and Kanye in recent years.
Kanye famously redesigned Kim’s wardrobe early in their relationship and is apparently trying to revamp his wife’s style again. Fights between the couple have cropped up due to Kanye attempting to police how sexy his wife dresses, claiming that it “hurts his soul” when she is too revealing. He has also brought up the idea of a makeup ban for their daughter, North.
Once again, an anonymous source is reporting ongoing therapy sessions for the West family. The source says Kim and Kanye have been discussing the things that frustrate them, venting their issues and learning how to communicate with each other to get past them.
The source says the couple has been attending once a week and is currently focusing on the romantic side of their relationship. Reports claim Kim and Kanye are looking to spice things up and keep the spark alive. Hopes seem to be high, as they reportedly credit therapy with saving their relationship in the past.
