Kim Kardashian West has flown to her family’s ranch in Wyoming to see her husband Kanye West for the first time since his troubling presidential rally in Charleston a week ago. The couple were photographed in a car outside a local Wendy’s restaurant and Kardashian is seen in tears in the passenger seat.
According to TMZ, the reality star and beauty mogul, 39, has been trying to convince her rapper husband to seek medical help for bipolar disorder after a series of public outbursts. It is thought West is refusing treatment.
Last week, during the aforementioned rally, West, 43, told shocked supporters he and his wife had considered abortion when Kardashian fell pregnant with their first child North, now 7.

Distraught Kim Kardashian breaks down in tears as she meets with Kanye West in Wyoming for marriage crisis talks after he accused her of an affair on Twitter and discussed abortion at his wild campaign rally. What do you think? I hope they will overcome crisis ❤️😇 ____ SC: @dailymail
“She said she was pregnant, and for one month, and two months, and three months, we talked about her not having this child,” he said during the rally. “She had the pills in her hand…I almost killed my daughter! I almost killed my daughter!”
He then accused Kardashian of wanting to fly to the family ranch with a doctor to “lock me up like on the movie Get Out” and claimed he has also been trying to divorce his wife since November.
Kardashian was said to be “distraught” over West divulging this private information – but she did ask the public for “compassion” and “empathy” toward her husband in light of his mental illness.
“People who are unaware or far removed from this experience can be judgmental and not understand that the individual themselves have to engage in the process of getting help no matter how hard the family try,” Kardashian said in a post to Instagram.
On the weekend, West issued an apology via Twitter. “I would like to apologise 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.”
More to come on this very sad situation.
