American reality television personality Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are again hounded by split reports. The couple have allegedly distanced after the Gold Digger hitmaker was checked into UCLA Medical Center for psychiatric evaluation in Los Angeles on 21 November.

A source told InTouch Weekly: "Kim is terrified of her husband's behavior, and has been talking to celebrity divorce attorney Laura Wasser (though it's unclear if she will represent Kim in court)."

"She really thought Kanye was her soul mate and is absolutely devastated. But this isn't what Kim signed up for when she married Kanye. She's done," the insider added.

"Kanye has absolutely no idea that any of this is happening. She's been doing everything in top secret," the source continued.

However, the 36-year-old reality star's best friend, Jonathan Cheban assured all is well between the couple. He told E! News at the DailyMail.com Holiday Party: "I just FaceTimed with Kim and Kanye and everyone's talking about some divorce rumors and I was laughing because I didn't hear that all day and I guess everybody else apparently here did and it's so funny to me because it's so not true."

"I don't know where people come up with stories but it's literally hysterical but Jennifer Aniston has also been pregnant like 1,000 times so it's kind of a joke," he added.

He continued: "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 divorcing 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."
