Kanye West is stepping away from the spotlight amid his divorce from Kim Kardashian. He has told his ex-wife Kim Kardashian he is “going away to get help”.
He has caused loads of controversy earlier this year with a stream of Instagram posts harassing Kim and her new partner Pete Davidson, 28, but will now reportedly step away from the limelight “for the sake of their kids”.
The two seem to have been on better terms as on Sunday they were seen talking at their son Saint’s game in Los Angeles. Together with Kim and Kanye co-parent North,, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm.
A rep for West told Page Six, ‘At this time, Ye is committed to a healthy co-parenting relationship with Kim and is focused on raising their beautiful children.’
‘For the sake of the kids, Kanye has told Kim he’s not making any public appearances or inflammatory social media statements, and he will go away somewhere to get better,’ said a Kardashian family ‘insider’ to the site.
The source added that ‘it wasn’t clear if West planned to go into a treatment facility, as he has stayed in Los Angeles to be with his and Kardashian’s four kids.’
When West repeatedly harassed Kim and Pete on social media, forcing the singer to be barred from Instagram for 24 hours in March, fans voiced concern that he may not be in good mental health.
In a music video, Kanye showed a Claymation version of Pete being buried alive.
Kanye has also said that Kim is being a good parent by letting North go on TikTok and he also said that she was keeping the kids from him, which she has denied.
Kim is ready to talk about Kanye on her new Hulu series The Kardashians which debuts on April 14.
In a teaser trailer for the ABC primetime special, which airs on April 6, Robin joked to Kim: ‘You can not make this stuff up!’
She replied: ‘You couldn’t write this stuff if it was a sitcom!’
Robin also asked the 41-year-old beauty: ‘How have you leaned on your family through your divorce with Kanye?’
Her answer wasn’t shown, but at another point in the trailer, the Kardashians star noted: ‘It’s hard to live your life on a reality show and then say I want certain things to be private.’
Kim appears to have moved on with her business links with West. Last summer she said she was rebranding her makeup line KKW Beauty. And on Friday she said she was rebranding her scent line KKW Fragrances.
