Kim’s Request for a Marriage Break May Have Been What Sent Kanye to the Hospital
Kim Kardashian has loyally been by Kanye West’s side since he was hospitalized last week, and though it was first reported that exhaustion and sleep deprivation was the initial cause for his stay, there may actually be more to it. With Kim doing her best to keep on top of the situation as well as protect her children and continue to deal with the aftermath of her terrifying Paris robbery, her need for stable support (and lack thereof) may in fact have been one of the things that set Kanye off in the first place.
According to a source who spoke to Us, the sitch between Kim and Kanye has “just been hell,” and the celebrity pair had been fighting fiercely before this latest incident. With Kim still recovering from her attack, “the trauma of the incident made her more hesitant to do things. Of course it strained their relationship, because she hadn’t seen him.”
On top of that, though Kim was trying to recover, Kanye “would be up all night ranting about things. He’d be up drawing, writing and sketching, or pacing and doing push-ups. He would not calm down and go to bed… They were fighting because he was impossible to live with.”
What makes it even worse is that this was when Kim felt she needed her husband to support her and now she’s having to support him. “She felt like now she needed him to be stable and her rock instead of the other way around. Kanye’s so used to getting Kim’s constant support and caring, but it’s always about Kanye… She didn’t know if she could take it anymore, and this time she refused to support him.” At least, that was until he was hospitalized. Now, not only has it been reported that she’s by his side nearly constantly, but she’s even taking care of him, including helping to feed him.
Despite this, Kim apparently hopes that things can be made right again. “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.” Let’s hope so!

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
