Kardashian is protecting her kids from ongoing Kanye West drama
Kim, 39, arrived in Cody, Wyoming, to speak with her husband, 43, face-to-face for the first time in weeks. The emotional reunion came after Kanye's various Twitter tirades attacking Kim and her family, and the SKIMS creator making a public statement to address his bipolar disorder.
A source tells PEOPLE that Kim is making a point to protect their kids — daughters North, 7, and Chicago, 2½, and sons Saint, 4½, and Psalm, 14 months — from their father's public outbursts.
“She is shielding the kids. All of her family is. They’ve circled around the kids and are insulating them from all of this,” says the source. “And everyone else has decided to create an atmosphere of normalcy around them.”
“They don’t need to see such a public meltdown,” the source adds.
Recently, the kids have been spotted with Kim's sister, Kourtney Kardashian, and her ex, Scott Disick, who have spent some quality time with Kourtney's nieces and nephews while Kim deals with her marriage issues.
