Kim Kardashian wants husband Kanye West to keep their personal life out of his presidential ambitions.
A source tells PEOPLE that Kardashian is “furious” with West after he revealed that they’d considered getting an abortion after she found out she was pregnant with her first child, daughter North, in 2013.
“Kim is shocked that Kanye spoke about North at the rally,” the source says. “She is furious that he shared something so private.”
The source adds that Kardashian West’s main concern is how her husband’s revelations about their private life may affect their four children (North 7, Saint, 4½, Chicago, 2½, and Psaim, 14 months)
“She loves her kids tremendously and wants to protect them,” the source says. “Her favorite thing in the world is being a mom.”
A second insider adds that the couple’s relationship has begun to suffer due to West’s behavior.
“Things have broken down significantly between the two of them, and it’s happened pretty suddenly,” the insider says.
The shocking admission came during the rapper’s first campaign rally for his unlikely 2020 presidential bid in South Carolina over the weekend. West sobbed while recalling the moment he found out Kardashian West was pregnant while they were dating.
“In the Bible, it says, ‘Thou shall not kill,'” he said. “I remember that my girlfriend called me screaming and crying, and I was just thinking because at that time I was a rapper I was out there, [had] different girlfriends and everything … and she said, ‘I’m pregnant.’ And I said, ‘Yes!’ And then I said, ‘Uh oh.’
“She was crying … and for one month and two months and three months, we talked about her not having this child. She had the pills in her hand,” West continued.
The rapper said he had a revelation from God to keep the child.
“I called my wife and she said, ‘We’re gonna have this baby,’ and I said ‘We’re gonna have this child,’ ” he said
At the rally, West seemingly admitted that Kardashian did not know he planned to share the personal anecdote.
“Even if my wife wants to divorce me after this speech, she brought North into the world even when I didn’t want to. She stood up and she protected that child,” he said.
Kanye is said to have suffered both manic and depressive episodes related to his bipolar disorder. Right now, he is struggling again,” the source said.
