Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are “doing well,” according to a source. A couple of insiders sat down with us recently and dished on reality TV’s favorite celebrity couple following the release of Ye’s recent album and TMZ’s explosive interview where the rapper made controversial statements about “slavery being a choice.”
According to an insider, “Kanye is extremely happy right now. He likes to pretend like he is on some kind of philosophical higher plane, but he’s glad to know that the critics are praising his latest album.”
Another added, “honestly, a lot of critics, including those in the mainstream media, were secretly hoping that his album would be terrible following his catastrophic interview with TMZ. It didn’t help that he wore that Trump hat either.”
However, no schadenfreude was permitted, as the rapper’s album has impressed both his fans and critics. The source explained, “Kanye has been working on his mental health, and he feels very whole these days.”
During a listening party in Wyoming on Thursday, May 31st, Kardashian, 37, was there along with her husband, Chris Rock, Jonah Hill, and Scott Disick.
An insider explained, “a lot of people don’t know that Jonah Hill and Kanye are actually close friends. They like each other a lot. They both have an eclectic style of humor and are fairly down-to-earth, even though Kanye seems like a larger-than-life figure in the media.”
As it was previously reported, Kardashian spoke with Entertainment Tonight on the 4th of June and said that the rapper’s latest track “meant a lot” to her.
Another source explained to us, “Kanye’s time off in Wyoming was very good for the both of them. It’s good to take a rest from the Hollywood/entertainment scene every once in a while.”
As you may know, Kanye and Kim just celebrated their four-year-wedding anniversary, and they have three children together, North, Saint, and Chicago, who are 4, 2, and four-months-old, respectively.
