mentioned that "Kim [was] mortified," while the family member reportedly believed he was struggling with his mental health. The two spent much of 2020 living in separate states, with Kanye spending the holidays away from the rest of the family member at their Wyoming ranch. A blow-out argument
in December was apparently the final straw.
