Kim Kardashian is planning to file for divorce from husband Kanye West "when the time is right," according to sources.
The reality star and her husband have been keeping a low profile following his hospitalization in November to recover from a mental breakdown.
And while Kim has reportedly been doing all she can to help aid the rapper’s recovery, US sources are claiming that the reality star is ‘unhappy’ in the relationship.
According to US Weekly, a friend to the Kardashians claimed: “It will take some time before she can do anything. She doesn’t want to stay married.”
The insider added that Kim won’t make any decisions until Kanye is fully recovered, stating: “She’s being a supportive wife. She cares about Kanye and feels relieved he’s getting the help he needs but she’s felt trapped for a while.”
It has been widely speculated that the couple may be experiencing marital issues after it was claimed that the rapper is living apart from his wife and their two kids – North, three, and Saint, 12 months – as he receives outpatient care following his 10 day stay in UCLA Medical Center.
A source told People magazine: “Kim is being very protective and doesn’t want Kanye around the kids right now.
“Kanye’s behavior took a huge toll on their marriage. But Kim feels relieved he is getting the help he needs. She thinks this is what it will take to save him — and help their marriage.”
While another source added: “He is receiving outpatient care else with a medical team. Kim still seems concerned but is supportive.
“They don’t know for how long Kanye will need outpatient care … There are frustrations and problems, like any relationship, but they love each other deeply.”
However, it has also been reported that Kanye was allowed to attend the low key 1st birthday party for the couple’s son, Saint.
TMZ.com reported he left the hospital “under the care of Kim and his personal physician Dr Michael Frarzam.”
The Famous hitmaker was admitted more than a week ago after suffering a breakdown which was believed to have been triggered by the nine-year anniversary of the death of his mum Donda West.
Meanwhile, it was previously claimed that Kanye is desperate to get back to work but has been ordered to rest up.
A source shared: "People in Kanye's inner circle are hoping the hospital stay has made him realize that he needs to take a step back from work and focus on his personal health and mindset.
"Kanye loves working, but he loves Kim and his family more. He had way too much on his plate and it came to a point where he couldn't handle it all, so he just broke. He needs to find a good balance with the two in his life and he'll work hard at finding that."
Whilst another insider added: "Kanye keeps wanting to work. At the hospital, he requested that recording equipment be brought to the hospital so he can record in his bed. And he has kept asking to see sketches of his fashion lines. He continues to want to work and Kim has to keep telling him to rest."
Kim has been married twice before after she eloped with music producer Damon Thomas in 2000 at the age of 19.
However, the marriage was over two years later and Thomas filed for divorce. Kim went on to claim the pair separated due to emotional and physical abuse in the relationship.
Kim then married basketball star Kris Humphries in August 2011 but the marriage famously last for only 72 days.
