It’s been a traumatic couple of weeks for her family.
And so Kim Kardashian decided to skip her usual extravagant celebrations in favour of a ‘low key’ party this week to mark both her husband Kanye West’s return from hospital and their son Saint’s first birthday.
Kanye was discharged from hospital on Wednesday, after suffering a reported ‘nervous breakdown’ over a week ago, while little Saint will turn one on December
Kim, 36, was keen to celebrate with her nearest and dearest according to insiders, and managed to throw together a ‘little celebration’ at her house in Los Angeles on Wednesday.
A source has told Us Weekly: ‘[Kim held] a little celebration with a little cake but it was very low-key.’
Kim – who also has three-year-old daughter North with her partner – invited her family to the party, with her sisters Khloe, Kourtney and Kylie all uploading a snapchat of dozens of star shaped metallic balloons filling the room.
Although it was supposedly a small get together, the Kardashian/Jenner family are ‘just happy’ the ‘Famous’ rapper is home safe and the brood can slowly start to get their life ‘back to normal’.
The source explained: ‘Everyone is just happy he’s back home and things can go back to normal.’
Meanwhile it has been claimed Kim is struggling to handle everything that has befallen the family in recent weeks.
Despite Kanye finally being discharged from hospital after his breakdown last week, his wife is still having difficulty coping.
‘Kim is really stressed out,’ an insider told People magazine on Thursday. ‘Everyone is trying to pitch in and help her out to relieve some of that and everything she’s going through.’
Just last month, Kim personally went through an ordeal of her own when she was robbed at gunpoint while staying at a luxury apartment in Paris.
Undoubtedly, the incident did no favours for Kanye’s mental well-being – he left in the middle of his concert when he heard the news – and now his breakdown appears to be having further affect on his wife.
