During this period, the 42-year-old— who was just listed as a billionaire by Forbes— is said to be "focusing on creating" new music, meaning Kim has little help when it comes to parenting their four children, North, six, Saint, fou, Chicago, two, and Psalm, 11 months.
"Kim finds it frustrating that [Kanye] doesn’t ask her how he can help with the kids," the source added.
Sadly, this is not the first time the couple has faced challenges within their relationship. In January, an insider claimed that after a series of nasty screaming matches they sought professional help.
"They have therapy sessions at least once a week where they each vent about their frustrations to an expert, who gives tips about how to open up and communicate better," the spy told Radar Online.
"The therapist is giving them suggestions to put the sizzle back in their sex life."
The news came after another source suggested Kim was "unhappy" with his erratic behaviour and strict nature.
"They have a really strange marriage and she is not happy. She is stressed about dealing with his mood swings and manic episodes," a different source told Radar Online.
This shock new insight also aligned with the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star's admission that Kanye urged her to remove friends from her life so she could focus on spending more time their family.
"My schedule has really changed," the 39-year-old told Us Weekly. "Obviously, my kids and my husband, [Kanye West], are my life, so I just had to cut out a lot of all the extra stuff that I was doing and the friends [I had]."
Interestingly, Kim is adamant that her pals that matter are fine with it.
"I'm best friends with all my friends I've been friends with forever, but they understand. They know I just don't go to all these events anymore, the movies. I don't do that extra stuff, and that's OK for me," she told the publication.
