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!
