Kanye West, the Grammy-winning rapper who shares four children with his wife, Kim Kardashian, is at a painful point in his life. After his inflammatory remarks including his claim in 2018 that “slavery was a choice”, Kim has grown increasingly well aware that his issues are escalating.

Kim has tried to help Kanye through these times but according to an inside source, “she doesn’t want to worry about a grown man anymore”. The Keeping up with the Kardashians star is studying to be a lawyer.
Kanye’s troubling behavior also included him stating at a Presidential July 19th campaign speech (where he made an unlikely run for President of the United States) that he and Kim had considered aborting their first child North who is now 7 years old.
