Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have reportedly jetted to the Caribbean in a final desperate bid to save their marriage.
Sources claim the couple are holed up in what can only be described as a ‘fortress’ with their four children, as their relationship hangs by a thread following a series of public meltdowns.
Kim, 39, and Kanye, 43, were previously seen together last week when she jetted to his ranch in Wyoming, following his series of controversial statements about their marriage, which she has attributed to his bipolar disorder.
According to TMZ, Kim and Kanye have jetted to the Caribbean after being spotted leaving Wyoming on a private jet, and are now staying on a remote estate to try and rebuild their relationship before its ‘beyond repair.’
Sources have also claimed the couple have brought along the pastor who married them, Rich Wilkerson Jnr on their ‘make or break’ trip, but Kim opted against bringing her mother Kris Jenner.
An insider told The Sun: ‘Kim and Kanye’s trip isn’t a romantic holiday. It’s more of a chance for them to reconnect away from the chaos of Wyoming, the hangers on who surround Kanye and the audience of their entourage.
‘She’s planning to fly Rich Wilkerson Jnr, their pastor who married them, out with his wife – or if Kanye is resistant, to video call him. He’s someone Kanye trusts.
‘He’s been a constant in Kim and Kanye’s lives and he’s a friend of the family. Kim is hoping an intervention will help Kanye.’
MailOnline has contacted representatives for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West for comment.
Kim and Kanye were last seen together last weekend, when Kim jetted from Los Angeles, where she’s been staying with their children, for an emotional reunion in Wyoming with Kanye.
During the reunion, the pair were pictured having an emotional exchange in the musician’s car, which looked to have left Kim in tears.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashian star proceeded to leave Wyoming solo back to Los Angeles to reunite with their children.
Kim has since denied a report that she feels ‘torn’ about the prospect of leaving Kanye, whose recent erratic behaviour she has attributed to his bipolar disorder, but is reportedly viewing divorce as ‘a last resort.’
In the report, shared by People, a source is quoted as saying: ‘She isn’t getting back what she needs from Kanye. She was to the point that she flew to Cody to basically tell him their marriage is over and to say goodbye.’
People reports that musician and fashion designer Kanye is eager to work on their marriage, recently issuing a public apology to her on Twitter after stating during a presidential rally that she contemplated aborting their first daughter North, seven.
However, a source claimed the apology is as far as his reparative efforts have gone, explaining: ‘He doesn’t seem to get what she is saying. He hasn’t changed anything that she told him needs to change.’
‘Kim is very torn,’ added the source. ‘The last thing she wants is to be divorced with four kids.
‘She knows that she will be fine financially, but her concerns are the kids and the partnership. She is moving towards a divorce, but who knows if she will actually sign papers.’
After his presidential campaign rally on July 19, in which he tearfully revealed he and Kim had considered aborting North, Kanye launched into a days-long string of Twitter rants denouncing both his wife and his mother-in-law Kris Jenner.
Kim, who was reportedly livid that he shared the abortion story publicly, made a statement late last month, saying that her family was ‘powerless’ to intervene to help Kanye with his bipolar disorder issues.
And while Kardashian’s representatives have told MailOnline that reports that she is weighing whether to leave her husband are ‘absolutely not true’, a number of Kanye’s recent tweets suggest divorce has been on his mind for some months.
Clearly the distance between the couple has been a source of contention, as during Kanye’s Twitter meltdown last week, he stated: ‘My family must live next to me,’ before adding: ‘It’s not up to E or NBC anymore.’
The rapper appeared to be hinting that he wanted Kim and the kids to be based in Wyoming and not in LA, where she films her E! reality series Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
‘Kanye has been in Wyoming for the last year. Kim goes about once every five weeks and brings the kids,’ one source told Us Weekly.
Added the source: ‘They haven’t been spending time together because he moved his life completely to Wyoming and that’s not where their life is, their family is, their kids are in school or the larger family is.’
Another report added that Kanye lives ‘full time’ in Wyoming as it is ‘best for his creativity’ according PageSix.
Kim is also said to have urged Kanye to quit his bid for presidency, which lead him to a disastrous first campaign rally in North Charleston, South Carolina, where he claimed he and his wife considered aborting their first baby, daughter North.
Yet Kanye is still eager for his presidential bid to become a reality, after making another last-ditch attempt to get on another ballot in Missouri last week, and is said to have hired top political advisers.
Last month, Kim took to Instagram following Kanye’s controversial behaviour, admitting that she was ‘powerless’ amid his meltdown, calling her husband ‘brilliant but complicated’.
The reality star said ‘his words sometimes do not align with his intentions’ after Kanye last night claimed he has been ‘trying to get divorced’ from Kim since she met his fellow rapper Meek Mill at a hotel.
Kanye said late last month that Kim was ‘out of line’ to meet Meek Mill at a hotel in Los Angeles to talk about ‘prison reform’, and blasted her mother Kris Jenner as ‘Kris Jong-Un’ while accusing the pair of ‘white supremacy’.
However, Kanye apologised to his wife in a tweet days later, amid reports that he went to hospital to be treated for anxiety.
The rapper 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. Please forgive me. Thank you for always being there for me.’
His apology came after Kim gave a frank and open statement about the situation to her fans, sharing three pages to her Instagram story amid the controversy.
She wrote: ‘Those that understand mental illness or even compulsive behavior know that the family is powerless unless the member is a minor.’
The star continued: ‘I understand Kanye is subject to criticism because he is a public figure and his actions at times can cause strong opinions and emotions.
‘He 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 bi-polar disorder.
‘Those who are close with Kanye know his heart and understand his words some times do not align with his intentions.’
It has also been reported that the couple have been living separately for the past year, with Kanye at their $14 million ranch in Wyoming and Kim back in Hidden Hills, California, with their four children, making near-monthly trips to see Kayne
Kim and Kanye four children − daughters North, seven and Chicago, two, and sons Saint, four, and Psalm, 14 months.
