How Coronavirus Lockdown Threatens Kanye West And Kim Kardashian’s Marriage
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s marriage is apparently tested during the coronavirus quarantine.
Words are the couple has been “arguing a lot” while they remain in self-isolation, mainly due to their unequal share of parenting duties.
A source tells Us Weekly, “Kim and Kanye have been arguing a lot during the quarantine.” As they have been left to care for their four children, North, 6, Saint, 4, Chicago, 2, and Psalm, 11 months, without any help, Kim allegedly “finds it frustrating that [Kanye] doesn’t ask her how he can help with the kids.”
The source explains that the 42-year-old rapper has been “focused on creating” lately, leaving him little to no time to help Kim with their kids. As a result, the 39-year-old reality TV star feels like “all the parenting duties are falling on her.” The source adds, “Kanye is really getting on Kim’s nerves.”
News of the couple’s latest marriage issue comes after it was reported that Kim and Kanye have been alternating family responsibilities for their two daughters and sons. Dishing to PEOPLE that “it’s a huge chaos with all the kids at home,” a source said earlier this month that the “Follow God” rapper took his kids to Wyoming to let his wife “have a break.”
“Kanye escapes to his office for a work break,” the source explained how the famous parents handled the issue. “He also let Kim have a break last week when he took some of the kids to Wyoming. They have been taking turns caring for the kids.”
It’s not clear if this parenting arrangement works for the couple, though. Previously, Kim opened up about the challenge with parenting four children indoors. “To be the teacher to four young kids – well, two are in school, so two – is insanity. I’m, like, hiding from them,” she told Jimmy Fallon in late March during an appearance in an online edition of “The Tonight Show”.
“And then they have to stop for P.E., go run up and down in the backyard, or they do this Pokemon yoga,” she added, explaining that her kids have also been spending time making edible slime and building “a different fort” in “every room of the house.”
