Kim Kardashian has been left ‘furious’ by husband Kanye West’s latest onstage meltdown and thinks it’s time for him to ‘grow up, stop having tantrums and be a man’, according to friends.
The news of Kim’s fury came just hours before West was hospitalised for his own safety after suffering a psychotic breakdown.
‘Kim is fed up,’ a close friend told DailyMail.com.
‘They’ve been bickering constantly – she didn’t want Kanye to do the tour in the first place. She wanted him by her side as she recovered from her traumatic robbery in Paris.
‘She lost days with him while he’s touring and then he made a rash decision to end the concert after ten minutes and go on a rant.’
The 36-year-old, who was seen boarding a private jet bound for New York without her husband on Monday morning, has spent the past month reassessing her future – with her career at the forefront of her mind.
West’s ‘narcissistic’ behaviour has proved problematic and friends tell DailyMail.com that she wants him to ‘grow up and be a man’ and be a proper source of support for her.
She wants him to grow up and really be a man, stop throwing tantrums and thinking throwing a tantrum on stage is more important than being with your children, especially after she just went through this horrible ordeal,’ explained an insider.
‘That’s messed up. Her heart and soul need to be nurtured right now. She wishes that person was Kanye but she’s realising right now that it’s probably not.
‘Kanye is not helping matters at all – first by not supporting her and then by going off on an erratic rant.’
According to friends, Beyoncé taking the Video of the Year Award at this year’s Video Music Awards, combined with his belief that the singer and her husband Jay-Z didn’t show enough support for Kim after she was robbed, proved the ‘final straw’ for the notoriously volatile rapper.
‘He had a psychotic break. Kanye is very hot tempered and he’s very reactionary. A lot of times, he speaks before he thinks and he’s very sensitive,’ explained an insider
When he heard about Beyoncé demanding to get Video of the Year, which means he wouldn’t have won.
‘And he won’t win if she gets her deal with MTV. There’s also the fact that she didn’t reach out to Kim or come and visit after her ordeal. He took it really hard.’
West’s Saint Pablo tour, which kicked off in July, had proved a critical success – with many of the dates, including three nights at the Los Angeles Forum, selling out.
Saturday night’s concert at Sacramento’s Golden 1 Center, which was added to the tour by the rapper ‘due to popular demand’, was also sold out.
But West’s decision to add extra dates to the tour did not go down well with his 36-year-old wife who is said to be fed up with of his ‘narcissistic behavior’ and lack of support.
