Kanye West was recently photographed vacationing in Greece without Kim Kardashian more than one after after the couple welcomed the birth of their first child.
The "New Slaves" rapper, 36, reportedly cruised around the Aegean Sea on Sunday, but onlookers observed that Kardashian, 32, and their newborn daughter, North West, were nowhere in sight.
In recent days it was claimed that West became furious after learning about the reality TV star's recent post-baby debut on her mother's talk show. Critics are now speculating whether the rapper may have taken a break from the drama by traveling to the Greek Islands over the weekend.
"Kanye went to Greece for two days with business friends of his and Kim's. He's back home in L.A. Now," a source told Us magazine.
"Everyone around him seemed to be enjoying the day, laughing and joking but Kanye kept to himself," a separate source told The Daily Mail UK about West's trip to Greece. "He didn't seem to be having much fun."
On Aug. 2 Kardashian, who had not been seen publicly since giving birth to her baby, made a brief virtual appearance on her mother Kris Jenner's talk show "Kris" and West was reportedly left upset.
"He thought it was a pretty cheap stunt," a source told In Touch magazine adding that if West had known about the appearance beforehand "he certainly wouldn't have wanted her to go onto Kris' show."
West reportedly wants to orchestrate Kardashian's post-baby reveal by advising her on fashion choices and her overall look.
"When the time comes for her to step out into public, he wants her to be wearing outfits he picked out for her," the source said.
As fans anxiously await a first glimpse of baby North critics are speculating whether West, who is notoriously private, will ever allow the newborn to be viewed by the public. Kardashian's family members are reportedly not allowed to tweet about the new addition.
"He's telling her sisters, mom — everyone — what they can and cannot post on Twitter," the source revealed.
West previously revealed that he wants privacy when it comes to his family and a source claims the rapper has the same restrictions for baby North that he has for Kardashian when it comes to the paparazzi.
"She has to do what he says — or else," the source said. Kardashian reportedly has no problem with West's requests. "She knows the littlest thing can set him off. She knows not to push Kanye too far … she's doing her best to keep him happy."
