Las Angeles - Kim Kardashian West has defended her husband Kanye West's recent outbursts.

The reality TV star took to her website,, to slam those who have criticised the rapper for his outlandish tweets, in which he has blasted stars including Wiz Khalifa, Taylor Swift and Amber Rose, and praised his new record as "the greatest album of all time".

In a blog post entitled 'Currently', Kim wrote: "LOVING My Husband. HATING That people don't get that Kanye will stand up against the whole world for his creativity and art. LISTENING TO 'I Love Kanye.' WEARING Yeezy Season 3 samples I took from the show.

"WANTING Everyone to be as honest as Kanye. WATCHING Kanye shoot his new video. READING Kanye's tweets (sic)."

Meanwhile, it was recently claimed that Kanye's outbursts have no effect on his family life with Kim and their two children, North, two and Saint, two months.

A source said: "It's been a rough week for Kim. She has lots of support from her family though. Everyone knows that Kanye, once in a while, goes on public rants and they are all very understanding that it's exhausting for Kim. It's like a tick that he has.

"When he starts his rants, it's very difficult for him to stop. When he starts venting, it's like he needs to get it all out. Kanye might seem mentally unstable at times, but there has never been any concern for Kim, or the kids. Kanye just has a problem controlling his impulses. It's not anything that usually affects their everyday life. Their marriage is not perfect, but there are no plans to split."
