Kim Kardashian gave her boyfriend a very public shout out for his birthday on Saturday, however, the reality TV star's absence from his star-studded party has raised more questions about their relationship.
On June 8 West, who is expecting a baby girl with Kardashian, celebrated his 36th birthday with close family and friends.
However Kardashian, 32, was noticeably absent and reportedly in another state. The couple of one-year has faced reports of a split due to their extended time apart throughout Kardashian's pregnancy, however, a source insists there was a good reason for the reality TV star's absence.
"Kim isn't allowed to fly," a source told Us magazine.
West reportedly celebrated his birthday at Ms. Lily's in New York City and guests included hip hop mogul Jay-Z, singer Beyonce and rapper Nas among others. Kardashian along with her sisters Khloe and Kourtney characteristically took to social networking site Twitter to send well wishes to the "Mercy" rapper.
"Happy Birthday to my best friend, the love of my life, my soul!!!! I love you beyond words!" Kardashian tweeted to her 17 million followers.
"Happy birthday Yeez! Love having you in our family and us in yours!. Keep shining. All I want for my birthday is a big booty gurl (Kanye voice)," Khloe tweeted alongside of photo of herself, Kardashian and West.
"Happy Birthday!" Kourtney tweeted alongside a photo that included Kardashian, West and herself with boyfriend Scott Disick.
West's birthday celebration came just days after it was claimed that Kardashian, who is just weeks away from her due date, is "stressed" over her unborn baby. The reality TV star allegedly feels torn between her mother, Kris Jenner, and West.
Jenner, who has always managed her son and daughters' careers, is said to be intent on making money off of Kardashian and West's first child, particularly by selling the first baby photo. West, who is notoriously private, is reportedly against the idea and allegedly wants complete privacy after the child is born.
"Kim has been telling her friends that she's really stressed about everything. She trusts Kris, and knows that she is only trying to help Kim, but she loves Kanye too and wants to be an equal partner with him rearing their daughter," a source told Radar Online. "For the first time in a long time, Kim just doesn't know what to do— she feels stuck."
Jenner, 56, and West are reportedly clashing over everything from where the baby will be born to how she will be raised, and Kardashian who is due in July, is unsure what to do.
"Kris has always been in charge of Kim's life, starting with the sex tape, and now she wants to make sure she makes as much money as possible off the baby," the source said.
"Kim has always relied on her mom to give her the best advice, but now she's struggling because Kanye wants to make sure that they don't overexpose their baby," the source added.
