Kanye sparked concern when he broke down crying at a presidential rally earlier this month, before making a series of wild allegations on Twitter.
He claimed Kim considered aborting their eldest daughter North and that he’s been trying to divorce her since she met rapper Meek Mill in a hotel room.
Amid Kanye’s erratic behavior, sources said Kim’s family feel “so bad” for the KUWTK star, 39, and think her husband is “dragging her down”.
An insider said: “She can’t defend him anymore and she can’t keep speaking out on his behalf when it’s affecting her and the kids.”
The source added: “Kim still says he could come around, but she knows that bipolar doesn’t ever go away.”
It’s believed the couple’s four children – North, seven, Saint, four, Chicago, two, and Psalm, one – are aware that their father is suffering.
“Her kids are old enough to know what’s going on and he’s past the point of a breakdown. He’s thrown her out in the fire,” the insider said.
The source went on: “Kim’s family feels so bad for her.
“Kourtney and Khloe both want Kim to leave Kanye and told her she can raise her kids better without him being there because he is literally dragging her down now and he’s become a danger and a liability.
“The trust is gone. Kim‘s fairytale just came to an end and now she’s left with the choice of being a single 40 something year old mom with four kids or staying with her mentally unstable husband who doesn’t respect her.”
A rep for the family said the claims are “not true”.
It comes after Kim broke down in tears amid her explosive Wyoming reunion with Kanye.
According to a picture obtained by TMZ, Kim could be seen in tears as she and Kanye had an animated discussion in their car.
The rapper could be seen slamming his fist into his hands as if he was explaining his situation, while Kim cried and tried to cut into his monologue.
Sources told PEOPLE on Tuesday that “as soon as Kim got to the ranch, she and Kanye came out together in his car,” before she started “hysterically crying”.
TMZ had previously revealed that Kim flew to her husband’s ranch in Cody, Wyoming, on Monday after weeks of failed communication.
Their meeting comes two days after Kanye begged his wife for forgiveness after making claims about Kim and her family.
He tweeted: “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.”
The fashion mogul concluded: “Please forgive me. Thank you for always being there for me.”
According to TMZ, Kanye issued the apology after visiting the emergency room on Saturday following anxiety in the midst of his “serious bipolar episode.”
Friends, family, and fans became concerned about the artist’s mental health after his emotional claims at the political rally and his Twitter meltdown in the days that followed.
He has been refusing to see or speak to Kim, but he has had visits from friends Justin Bieber, Damon Dash, and Dave Chapelle.
In one of his distressing tweets, Kanye claimed he has been “trying to divorce Kim” since she allegedly met rapper Meek Mill at a hotel in 2018, an allegation which Meek denies.
Kanye also called Kim, along with his mother-in-law Kris Jenner, “white supremacists.”
What is bipolar disorder?
Bipolar disorder is a severe mental health illness characterised by extreme mood swings of manic highs and depressive lows.
The disorder is a medical condition that can affect moods, and typically can make them swing from one extreme emotion to another.
It is categorised by episodes of extreme highs, mania, or extreme lows, depression.
If mood swings last a long time, but aren’t severe enough to be classed as bipolar disorder, some people are diagnosed with having cyclothymia (a mild form of bipolar disorder).
It is thought about 29million people worldwide suffer from bipolar disorder.
- Depression – feeling very low and lethargic
- Mania – feeling very high and overactive
- Extreme episodes can last for several weeks or even longer.
During a manic phase of bipolar disorder, a person may:
- Feel very happy
- Have lots of energy, ambitious plans and ideas
- Spend large amounts of money on things you cannot afford and would not normally want
- Not feel like eating or sleeping
- Talk quickly
- Become annoyed easily
- They may feel very creative and view the manic phase of bipolar as a positive experience.
- But they may also experience symptoms of psychosis, where they see or hear things that are not there or become convinced of things that are not true.
Kim, who shares four kids with Kanye, responded to his behavior, saying she feels “powerless” to help him.
A source told The Sun exclusively: “Kanye is very unwell and everyone’s very worried for him.
“He’s acting extremely paranoid and seems convinced Kim and Kris Jenner are ‘out to get him.’
“He’s told her that if the Kardashian family try and stage an intervention he’ll live stream it on Twitter and ‘show the world the truth.’”
