Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have reportedly started seeing a relationship counselor.
The reality TV star and her rapper partner welcomed their first child, a daughter called North, into the world in June.
Since the birth, Kanye has been involved in a string of angry public disputes provoked by his instinct to protect his child.
The couple are now said to have sought professional assistance to help them both adjust to parenthood.
“It’s helping them get through it,” a source told UK magazine Closer. “Kim knows Kanye’s an alpha male, but she finds it hard handling his moods. Kanye is a very different person when it’s just him and Kim – she melts when she sees him holding their little girl.”
Another source of aggravation for Kanye is said to be Kim’s mother Kris Jenner. The couple are currently staying at Kris’ home while their property is being renovated. Kanye and Kris have a famously fraught relationship and they are apparently finding the living conditions tough.
“There’s a constant stream of family friends and business associates in Kris’ house and it puts Kanye’s back up and makes him really moody,” the insider continued. “When he’s angry he gets in people’s faces and rants at them, but it only happens when he’s having to fight through a crowd of paps to get in the front door, or when there’s someone in the house he doesn’t know. He turns into Papa Bear!”
