If you have never heard of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, you have to be living under a rock. Kardashian is a social media star and many people’s favorite celebrity. West is a rapper who is infamous for his controversial opinions and loud personality.

Recently, this couple has been in the social medias eye focusing on the couple since October. In October Kim Kardashian was robbed in Paris and held at gunpoint. For months she stayed out of public eye. Kardashian disconnected herself from social media including twitter, Instagram, and snapchat. For a week her family did the same to show their support. Her husband then rescheduled a few tour dates to stay close with his wife.

About a month after, West suffered a mental break. The details are unknown, but what is known is that West was performing in Sacramento and after a short and surprising rant, West left the stage. The following day, he cancelled his tour and was hospitalized at the UCLA Medical Center. His mental breakdown was supposedly caused by exhaustion, Kim’s traumatizing robbery, and the anniversary of his mother’s death.

Since both of the couple’s incidents, they have stayed away from paparazzi and off of social media, but during early January the couple has bounced back.

Photos were realized of Kardashian leaving the house, with a humble appearance. Photos surfaced of West with bleached hair. And finally, Kardashian returned to social media. Posting a picture of her and West with their two children. She posted a video to her twitter of moments captured during the time she stayed away from media which included personal times with her son and daughter. She has remained a strong front with her husband with videos of them embracing on the posted video.

People have said this was a publicity stunt and Kim was never actually robbed, but on December 9th, over a dozen men were arrested for being connected to the robbery.

It is hard to say why the family is struggling so much right now. Is it because of the paparazzi and media? Or has the family just had enough of all the attention?
