If any couple needed a healthy dose of Christmas cheer this year it was Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. Following months of turmoil and trauma, the superstar couple got together to celebrate the holiday season with the whole Kardashian family.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West got festive at the Kardashians' Christmas party on Sunday, PEOPLE reports. The couple showed up at Kourtney Kardashian's family Christmas celebration to get in some quality family time with their children North and Saint West following rumors that the pair have been spending time apart. And although they spent the holidays together, some insiders noticed the the married couple doesn't exactly seem to be on great terms right now. Apparently Kardashian and West were getting together more for the benefit of their children than for their relationship, according to one of PEOPLE's sources.
They were focused on making it a fun Christmas for the kids. They hang out with the kids, but are not really getting along otherwise.
Kanye West reportedly arrived to the party a while after his wife Kim Kardashian got there, opting to take in a movie with a friend first. When he did make it to the celebration, West and Kardashian reportedly barely spoke to one another and kept their distance. Although, they did get together to have a photo taken, which West uploaded to his Twitter on Tuesday.
The alleged strained relationship between Kim Kardashian and Kanye West has developed from after a particularly traumatic series of months for the couple. Back in early October, Kardashian was held at gunpoint and robbed of millions of dollars in her hotel room in Paris. Following the robbery, Kardashian has remained offline and out of the public eye, having been so shaken by the near-death experience.
And things didn't get better after Kanye West was hospitalized for a reported temporary psychosis at the end of November. After going on a long rant about politics at what turned out to be his final concert of the year, West canceled the rest of his tour and was admitted to the UCLA Medical Center a day later after reports that he got aggressive with one of his staff members. West was released eight days later, and instead of following his wife's strategy of staying out of the public eye to recover from a highly publicized tragedy, he immediately took a meeting with President Elect Donald Trump and dominated headlines yet again. Some people are speculating that it's this disparity in dealing with their respective tragedies that is driving a wedge between West and Kim Kardashian.
Hopefully 2017 will be a much better year for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.
