Kim Kardashian and family ‘shielding and insulating’ kids after Kanye West’s public meltdown, reveals insider
Kim Kardashian West and the whole of her family are protecting her children from all the drama that’s going on because of their father Kanye West. A source told People that Kim is doing everything to protect her four children -- North, 7, Chicago, 2, Saint, 4, and 14-month-old Psalm -- whom she shares with her rapper husband.
“She is shielding the kids. All of her family is. They’ve circled around the kids and are insulating them from all of this. And everyone else has decided to create an atmosphere of normalcy around them. They don’t need to see such a public meltdown,” the insider said.
Recently, all four children were spotted with their aunt Kourtney Kardashian and her ex Scott Disick while Kim deals with issues in her marriage. On Monday, July 27, she reunited with West in Wyoming. The 39-year-old was pictured with the ‘Jesus is King’ singer in what appeared to be an intense conversation in a car. Kim and Kanye reportedly met for the first time after the 43-year-old’s political rally and Twitter spree last week.
Their meeting comes after West apologized to the reality star on Saturday, July 25, for publicly sharing intimate details, which includes claims like when Kim was pregnant with North they thought of abortion. He also accused his wife of having an affair with rapper Meek Mill. In a Twitter post, the 43-year-old said: “I would like to apologize to my wife Kim for going public with something that was a private matter. 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.”
Earlier, Kim asked for “compassion” while addressing her husband’s erratic behavior in the past few days. Taking to Instagram Stories, the 39-year-old wrote: “We as a society talk about giving grace to the issue of mental health as a whole, however, we should also give it to the individuals who are living with it in times when they need it the most. I kindly ask that the media and public give us the compassion and empathy that is needed so that we get through this. Thank you for those who have expressed concern for Kanye’s well being and for your understanding. With Love and Gratitude, Kim Kardashian West.”
In the second message, the ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ star continued that she understands West “is subject to criticism because he is a public figure and his actions at times cause strong opinions and emotions.” Kim also acknowledged that the father-of-four is a “brilliant but complicated person who on top of the pressures of being an artist and a Black man, who experienced the painful loss of his mother, and has to deal with the pressure and isolation that is heightened by his bipolar disorder.”
“Those who are close with Kanye know his heart and understand his words sometimes do not align with his intentions. Living with bipolar disorder does not diminish or invalidate his dreams, no matter how big or unattainable they may feel to some. That is the part of his genius and as we have all witnessed, many of his big dreams have come true,” she added.
