Kim Kardashian is reportedly "completely devastated" by Kanye West's recent  actions, after revealing the couple had considered aborting their daughter North in a tearful speech at his presidential rally.

Soon after, Kanye retreated to his ranch in Wyoming, where he posted a series of concerning tweets that included claims Kim and Kris Jenner had "tried to lock him up with a doctor".

According to US Weekly, a source close to the family says Kardashian "feels helpless" and thinks the father of her four children "crossed a line" when he spoke about private family matters so publicly.

"She's tried so hard to help him," the source said.

Entertainment Tonight reports a source that claims Kanye "isn't in a good place and isn't listening to anyone trying to talk him into getting help". 

Kim is said to be "heartbroken" by the idea of her 7-year-old daughter North seeing footage of her father screaming "I almost killed my daughter" when she gets older.

Kim previously called dealing with her husband's mental illness "an emotional process" in an interview with Vogue last year, but said the couple could "feel bipolar episodes coming and knew how to handle them". 

Having deleted many of his tweets - some of which referenced his wife's infamous sex tape and Playboy magazine shoot - Kanye returned to Twitter to declare he's dropped a new album this week. He also shared an awkward video with comedian Dave Chappell, in which Kanye urges him to make a joke to "lift their spirits".
