After a controversial and explosive couple of weeks, Kanye West has reportedly escaped LA and fled to Wyoming to finish his upcoming album.
TMZ reports the rapper, 40, flew from LA to Jackson Hole on Wednesday to finish his next album, reportedly coming out on May 25.
Kim Kardashian, 37, has joined her husband, posting images from their getaway home.
For the past few weeks, West has fueled headlines for his erratic Twitter antics and comments he made Tuesday when he called slavery 'a choice' during a live TMZ interview, as well as publicly supporting US President Donald Trump.
A source close to the family told PEOPLE that Kim is doing her best to protect her rapper husband, 40, after the string of controversial statements made via Twitter.
'Kanye is the most amazing person when he’s not acting like this. But when he gets manic, it’s really hard for everyone around him,' the insider spilled. 'Kim is absolutely worried about him right now, but she will defend him publicly to the end. She’s a very loyal wife, and her tweets and everything she’s been saying is definitely very calculated to help Kanye.'
Kardashian West was quick to defend her husband in a series of tweets of her own, arguing that reports labeling him 'as having mental health issues for just being himself when he has always been expressive' are 'not fair.'
Appearing on The Ellen Degeneres Show earlier this week, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star continued to defend Kanye.
I didn’t even know he got his Twitter again until I started seeing tweets coming in from other people retweeting them. And I was like, ‘Wait, is this real?’ And then at night he came in and said, ‘Did you see my tweets?’ I was like, ‘Yes, I did see your tweets,’ and I followed him back,' she explained.
