• The source noted that while the rapper has "been happier and more focused around her," their relationship seems to have "taken a toll on her and everyone has their say."
Kanye West and his wife, Bianca Censori, are reportedly "taking a break" following the intervention of her friends, Page Six magazine has reported.
The couple - who wed in December 2022 - have been separated since mid-October, according to US Sun.
"Her family has never been a fan of Ye, and those close to her have questioned whether marrying him was the right decision," a source told Friday newspaper in the United States.
“He's a very difficult person to work with, and Bianca has been one of the most patient people I've ever dealt with."
The source noted that while the rapper has "been happier and more focused around her," their relationship seems to have "taken a toll on her and everyone has their say."
West, 46 - who is currently in a luxury converted studio recording in Saudi Arabia - is reportedly focused on making new music with Ty Dollar $ign and is therefore "not worried" about the state of his marriage.
"[Censori] could go back to him for the album launch - she loves the lifestyle - but I think it's clear her family and friends would like her not to," the source claimed, adding that the Grammy winner's biggest concern at the moment is "gaining distribution after losing a lot of connections because of his hate speech last year."
Earlier this month, the Yeezy founder traveled to the Middle East while Censori, 28 - who works as a designer for a fashion company - visited two longtime friends in her native Australia, where her Kardashian-like family still lives.
"Her friends let her know how they feel, and told her she needs to wake up," a source told the Daily Mail earlier this week, going on to say that Censori's loved ones finally "made it". go through her.”
"She knows she's locked out people close to her, and she's also starting to see through the smokey mirrors of her marriage," the source continued, adding that they're both "familiar with Kanye's controlling ways" and "starting to see" things from an outside perspective.”
In fact, Censori allegedly "chose to go home after it was made clear" that West would not include her on his latest trip.
Reports have emerged recently that people close to her have grown "very worried" about her, with sources claiming she is "stuck" because of the "barriers Kanye has put [around her]."
The musician reportedly "has some rules for Bianca," which allegedly include "never saying anything," "wearing what she wants to wear," "eating certain foods" and "working out even when Kanye isn't working."
In the past, Censori reportedly "didn't like to talk" or listen to "anyone's concerns for her."
