Kardashians deny 'Kimye' divorce rumours

Kim Kardashian West and husband Kanye are not heading for divorce, the reality TV family has assured fans.

Rumours about the celebrity power couple splitting up spread online on Wednesday evening, a week after the rapper was released from hospital.

"Calm down everyone: Kim and Kanye are NOT divorcing," the Kardashians posted on their Twitter account in response.

According to E! News, which broadcasts Keeping Up With The Kardashians, a family source said it had been "a very hard couple of months" for the couple, but the relationship is stable.

"Kim wants him to continue getting therapy even after all of this, she wants to get Kanye back on his feet," said Jonathan Cheban, who works closely with the family on the show.

"She is not leaving him. She loves him."

West was treated for temporary psychosis due to sleep deprivation and dehydration following a series of rants about Donald Trump, Beyonce, Jay Z, Hillary Clinton and Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg during two shows of his Saint Pablo tour.

It came after his wife was tied up by armed robbers in Paris, locked in a bathroom and robbed of jewellery worth around $10m (£8m).

Cheban said he did not want to "talk much about them because it's not my business" but said that "the divorce thing is kind of hysterical".

He added: "It's so funny to me because it's not true. They're in good spirits."
