Kim Kardashian's friend denies Kanye divorce rumours


Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are not heading for divorce, one of the couple's close friends has said.

Reports of yet another impending celebrity break-up came after rapper Kanye was released from hospital, where he was treated for "temporary psychosis due to sleep deprivation and dehydration".

Reality TV star Kim, 36 - who suffered her own drama earlier this year when she was tied up by armed robbers in Paris - was reported to "want a divorce".

But Jonathan Cheban, who appeared in Keeping Up With The Kardashians and Celebrity Big Brother, told E! News he had spoken to the couple and that the reports were "hysterical".

"It's so funny to me because it's so not true," he said.

"They're in good spirits.

"I don't want to talk much about them because it's not my business but I do have to say that the divorce thing is kind of hysterical, that I will mention, because I just spoke to both of them on FaceTime literally before I was coming here and when I heard that I literally burst out laughing."

Kanye, 39, abruptly pulled the plug on his Saint Pablo Tour following a series of on-stage outbursts, ranting about Beyonce, Jay Z, Hillary Clinton and Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. He was later taken to hospital.

Kim was locked in a bathroom in a private residence in the French capital and tied up by armed robbers, who were dressed as police officers and are believed to have stolen jewellery worth $10 million, earlier this year.

The couple, who have two children, wed in a lavish ceremony in 2014.
