Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are on the brink of calling it quits! Several speculations now circulating on the rumor mills claimed the celebrity couple were experiencing trouble in their marriage long before his recent breakdown.

The rapper and designer have struggled with a lot of issues over the past few months. Most notably, the upcoming anniversary of his mother’s death. Donda West had died on November 10, 2007, from complications developed from a medical procedure done earlier.

39-year-old, Kanye was also said to have nightmares of his wife’s 10 million dollar robbery in Paris. The never-ending saga have now created a rift in their marriage, and have fueled the rumor mill of an impending breakup.

Kim, who was always a staple of her husband’s concerts were nowhere in sight at Kanye’s recent concert tours. The mother of Saint and North West, the couple’s two children, have opted to stay at home with her young children.

Sources close to the couple have reported that they were having marital problems long before the highly publicized robbery in Paris.

According, to US Weekly the source also stated “it’s just been hell for them.” The mother of two had struggled to feel safe from the trauma, she is reluctant to take part in anything. The source also stated “The trauma of the incident made her more hesitant to do things.” “Of course it strained their relationship, because she hadn’t seen him.”

Kanye’s continuous rants and workaholic tendencies coupled with sleep deprivation finally got the better of him. The source also disclosed that, “He would be up all night ranting about things.” “They were fighting because he was impossible to live with.”

The breaking point finally came when the 21-time Grammy winner abruptly cancelled the rest of his 63-date Saint Pablo tour. With the help of his personal trainer Harley Pasternak, he checked himself in at the Los Angeles, UCLA Medical Center.
