The 40-year-old rapper has been posting tweets that are increasingly worrisome to some of his loved ones. In one recent tweet, West suggested the need to 'get rid of everything.'
Sources close to the rapper told the publication that while he can be 'eccentric and erratic', not everyone sees his latest actions as cause for concern.
A source said: 'A lot of this is just Kanye. He’s always been like that. He stirs the pot.'
'Kim is trying to control him and the situation, but he can’t be controlled,' the insider adds. 'She’s trying her best to support him on social media and show a different side of things, but it’s just not working.'
'He genuinely believes he’s God and a genius and that he can do everything on his own. He has a great love for Kim, but in his mind he doesn’t think Kim is a genius, and he’s telling her he knows what he’s doing,' they continue.
In late 2016, West was hospitalized for exhaustion after canceling his Saint Pablo tour. Fans saw Kardashian-West break down on Keeping Up with the Kardashians when she was told of the hospitalisation.
'I don’t even know what’s going on right now, it’s getting pretty hectic at home,' Kim said on the show. 'Everyone is just getting really worried.'
'I’m not in the mood to get into it right now… but it will be okay,' she told her family. 'Everything will be okay. It’s forcing him to take much-needed time off, which he needs. I think that will be really good for him. I feel a sense of responsibility just with the pressure of taking care of everything. Even after the robbery and everything, it’s just I’ve been staying home and I’ve been looking to him to just take care of everything while I stay home.'
'He just never takes time off,' she continued. 'I’m just so drained. There was one moment where I just sat there and took deep breaths.'
