Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West ‘in good spirits’
Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West are "in good spirits" despite divorce rumors, according to close friend Jonathan Cheban.
The 39-year-old rapper was admitted to hospital last month after suffering from exhaustion and sleep deprivation, and set tongues wagging about a possible divorce from the ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ star as his mental health took its toll on their relationship.
Now, the 42-year-old reality star – and close friend of the couple – has completely shut down the rumors, saying they’re "so not true".
Speaking to E! News, Jonathan said: "I just FaceTimed with Kim and Kanye and everyone’s talking about some divorce rumors and I was laughing because I didn’t hear that all day and I guess everybody else apparently here did and it’s so funny to me because it’s so not true.
"I don’t know where people come up with stories but it’s literally hysterical but Jennifer Aniston has also been pregnant like 1,000 times so it’s kind of a joke.
"They’re in good spirits. I don’t want to talk much about them because it’s not my business but I do have to say that the divorcing is kind of hysterical, that I will mention, because I just spoke to both of them on FaceTime literally before I was coming here and when I heard that I literally burst out laughing."
Jonathan’s defence for the couple – who share three-year-old North and 12-month-old Saint together – comes after multiple sources reportedly claimed Kim, 36, didn’t "want to stay married" to the ‘Bound 2’ hitmaker.
One source reportedly said: "It will take some time before [Kim] can do anything. She doesn’t want to stay married.
"She’s being a supportive wife. She cares about Kanye and feels relieved he’s getting the help he needs but she’s felt trapped for a while."
Another is believed to have said: "Kanye’s behaviour took a huge toll on their marriage. But Kim feels relieved he is getting the help he needs. She thinks this is what it will take to save him — and help their marriage."
