Kanye West’s compulsive, irrelevant Twitter addiction has taken its toll on his marriage to Kim Kardashian, but she is still holding the torch for her man.
According to a source close to the couple, Kim is standing by her man despite his nonsensical rants and outbursts on the micro social media site and will do anything to make her third marriage work.
Meanwhile, it’s Kardashian’s strong foundation with West, 38, is what keeps them together, says another source.
“They’re incredibly supportive of one another, not only publicly, but privately as well. Kim has a unique understanding of him, probably in a deeper way than anybody else in the world. She’s understanding of the way that he operates.”
In the 20 months since their extravagant wedding in Italy, the couple have expanded their family, giving daughter North, 2, a baby brother, Saint, 2 months.
“Kim and Kanye are so happy!” a source told PEOPLE magazine in December, but the weeks since have revealed cracks.
While an insider said West is still “excited about his family,” his energies have shifted to new projects, including his album The Life of Pablo and Yeezy Season 3 clothing line launch.
In the process of promoting the ventures, he’s garnered an endless string of headlines with his Saturday Night Live tantrum, $53 million debt claims, renewed feud with Taylor Swift and Twitter scuffles.
“What causes friction in the marriage, however, is Kanye’s compulsive tweeting,” a source said.
“Kim can’t stand it. She is all for self-promotion, but doesn’t approve of Twitter drama.”
