The couple’s four-year relationship has become the subject of intense speculation, after it was reported that Kardashian, 36, was considering a divorce from the rapper, 39.
But following a ‘heart-to-heart’ over the weekend, the pair have now decided to get counselling in an effort to mend their marriage, which was rocked by West’s breakdown last month.
A glum-looking West, who spent part of last week with President-Elect Donald Trump in New York, was pictured with his equally gloomy wife on Sunday night, leaving a Santa Monica restaurant.
However a source close to the couple insisted that, contrary to appearances, things have begun to improve. ‘They’re actually doing better,’ said the insider.
‘It was obviously a bit tough when everything [West’s psychotic breakdown] went down and it was confusing with the stuff going on. But they’re doing better now.’
Kardashian, who was left ‘conflicted’ over the future of her marriage following West’s hospitalization on November 21, now wants to give the relationship a chance.
‘Kim is so in love with him and love can be blinding sometimes – she just adores him and the family loves him as well,’ said the friend of the couple’s.
‘It’s a situation that she’s giving another shot, a second chance. She feels he’s been under a lot of pressure, so she feels like he deserves another shot.’
‘They had a heart-to-heart about it and Kim is still deeply in love with him.’
Kardashian is also making her two children with West a priority and, having thought hard about her situation, has concluded that making the marriage work would be better for them.
The insider told DailyMail.com: ‘Despite the fact that logic tells her the best thing to do would be to move on, the other side of that is that she has children with him now.
‘Kim told me, “It’s not just about me, it’s about the kids”. So she wants to make it work. The only issue right now is he needs more time to recover and get better so she wants to wait and see how it goes.’
