Kanye West and Kim Kardashian escape by private jet on family vacation to 'save marriage'

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have reportedly escaped the limelight on a family vacation amid what could be the breakdown of their marriage - according to some of West's now-infamous tweets. 

TMZ reports the couple took their children to an undisclosed location via private jet in a bid to "try and work things out". The celebrity gossip website claims the pair discussed the trip during their emotional reunion at West's ranch in Wyoming, where Kardashian was photographed crying in the car during a heated argument. 

West and Kardashian reportedly "haven't seen each other much at all for months", even before West's repeated outbursts which began at his now-infamous presidential rally where he claimed he and Kardashian had considered aborting their first child. 

The rapper retreated to his ranch where he embarked on several Twitter tirades, accusing his wife of trying to "lock him up" and insisting he had been trying to divorce her for sometime, among other concerning remarks. 

Kardashian released a statement asking for empathy and compassion in response to her husband's behaviour, discussing his bipolar diagnosis in detail for the first time. 

West made a public apology to his wife last week, writing: "I did not cover her like she has covered me." 

"To Kim I want to say I know I hurt you. Please forgive me. Thank you for always being there for me."
