The couple, who has been married for six years, is said to have flown to the Caribbean for a trip that is “make or break” for their marriage, according to The Sun.
The tabloid has also reported that Kardashian planned to fly out the couple’s pastor, Rich Wilkerson Jr., who officiated their wedding in 2014.
TMZ has also reported that Kardashian and West are joined by their four children, and that the family is staying in a “fortress” to evade paparazzi.
Speculation about Kardashian and West’s relationship began following the rapper’s public breakdown, which appeared to begin when he declared he would run for the US presidency on July 4 through Twitter.
Later that month, West held a campaign rally in South Carolina where he shared a series of bizarre and personal statements, including his claim that revered abolitionist Harriet Tubman “never actually freed the slaves,” and a tearful confession that he and Kim considered terminating their first pregnancy.
Kardashian released a statement on Instagram defending her husband. In it, she called West “a brilliant but complicated person,” and spoke of the “incredibly complicated and painful” struggle West’s bipolar disorder was for him and the entire family.
West later shared an apology to Kardashian on Twitter, writing: “I would like to apologize to my wife Kim for going public with something that was a private matter. I did not cover her like she has covered me,” he posted.
“To Kim I want to say I know I hurt you. Please forgive me. Thank you for always being there for me.” Days after West’s July 25 tweet, TMZ published photos of Kardashian in tears as the two reunited in Wyoming.
Kardashian was reported to have returned to Los Angeles following their meeting with a renewed sense of hope about the state of their marriage, despite previously stating the family was “powerless” in getting West help if he refused.
“Before the trip, she was ready to end her marriage,” a source told People following Kardashian’s visit to Wyoming.
“But Kanye has been listening to her concerns. He has made some promises to her. Kim still sees divorce as a last resort. She is not there yet.”
