Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were fighting in the weeks leading up to his breakdown, a new report is claiming.

‘It’s just been hell for them,’ a source told Us Weekly .
The 39-year-old Famous hitmaker had apparently become ‘unbearable’ to live with and the duo, who share a 11,000 sq ft Bel Air home together, were fighting a lot.
‘It’s just been hell for them’: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were reportedly fighting in the weeks leading up to the rapper’s nervous breakdown
‘He would be up all night ranting about things,’ said the insider who added that Kanye ‘unraveled’ when he realized he can’t do it all.
‘He’d be up drawing, writing and sketching, or pacing and doing push-ups. he would not calm down and go to bed.’
Things reportedly came to a head when Kanye’s on-stage rants became increasingly worrying and controversial, ending one of his concerts after just three songs.
In Sacramento, California the rapper launched into a 15-minute tirade attacking friend Beyonce and begging Jay Z to call him before walking off stage.
Two days later the producer canceled his remaining Saint Pablo tour dates.
‘Kanye’s so used to getting her constant support and coddling, but it’s not always about him,’ the source told Us Weekly.

‘She felt like she needed him to be stable and her rock instead of the other way around,’ Insiders say Kim felt like Kanye bailed when she wanted to lean on him
‘She didn’t know if she could take it anymore, and this time she refused to support him.’ a source close to Kim revealed.
It all became too much for Kim, 36, who, at the time of Kanye’s breakdown was planning her first public appearance since the jewelry heist at the Angel Ball in New York to honour her late father Robert.
But as she left for the east coast, the KUWTK star informed her husband of two years that she needed a break and told him she didn’t want to talk to him, according to Us Weekly.
A source said Kim felt like Kanye had bailed on her and that ‘she felt like she needed him to be stable and her rock instead of the other way around.’
While Kim, who suffered nightmares and flashbacks, was ‘disappointed at the lack of support’ from her husband after the October 3 heist, he himself was struggling to deal with the terrifying incident.
It seems the E! star is now hoping that Kanye’s hospitalization and well needed break will save their marriage.
‘Kim is relieved he is getting the help he needs.’ a source told Us Weekly.
The rapper and father of two was admitted to Resnick Neuropsychiatric ward at UCLA over a week ago.
According to TMZ , Kanye suffered a ‘nervous breakdown triggered in large part by the anniversary of his mother’s death.’
Donda died at the age of 58 after suffering complications from elective surgery. Her funeral was November 20 – the same day Kanye cancelled his show at the L.A. Forum.
The following day Kanye cancelled the rest of his tour and was later taken to hospital.

The ‘near death’ experience reportedly left Kanye ‘completely freaked out’ and the fact that it happened near the nine-year anniversary of the loss of his mother Donda only deepened the rapper’s distress.
Dailymail.com has contacted a spokesperson for Kim for comment.
Kim got the emergency call just as she’d landed in New York informing her that Kanye, who reportedly hadn’t slept in a week, was acting ‘paranoid and psychotic and struggling to identify what was real’.
Kanye was at trainer Harley Pasternak’s home who put the call in to his doctor who then called 911 for Kanye, telling the operator the star was suffering a ‘temporary psychosis’.

The rapper – who has always been a slave to his work – has reportedly been asking his wife Kim if he can have music equipment at his bedside and see his Yeezy fashion designs, but the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star has told him he must focus on getting better.
A source told Us Weekly : ‘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.’
It was reported on Tuesday that Kim has not yet taken their two children North, three and Saint, 11-months to visit their father.
‘She is very worried about the kids being around Kanye,’ an insider revealed.
An insider recently said: ‘In the hospital he has been very paranoid and is under constant watch for his safety.
‘He’s still there because clearly he’s not doing well. Kim does spend hours with Kanye every day. She says that Kanye is on many different medications and that his doctors are figuring out proper doses.
‘Kim says that not much has changed since he was admitted and that his doctors seem concerned.’
