Kim Kardashian and Kanye West may have a luxurious mansion waiting for them once renovations on the palatial pad are through, but it's not just the remodeling efforts that are keeping the pair out of their new home.
Kim and Kanye, who have set up camp at Kris Jenner's California home since the birth of their daughter, North West, on June 15, are reportedly having a hard time leaving home, thanks to Kim's reluctance to be apart from her family.
UK magazine Closer reports that Kim is frightened to be away from the supportive nest her mother has provided, especially with Kanye travelling so frequently for business.
"Kanye's been pushing for them to move into her townhouse or to rent until their home is completed in about six months, but Kim's resisting - she's scared," a friend of the couple told the magazine.
"Kanye's not around much and when he is, he's moody. She prefers being surrounded by family and doesn't seem to want it to be just them and North."
Kim is also reportedly concerned about Kanye's temper getting worse if he's isolated with her and the baby for an extended period of time.
"Kim's worried rows will erupt between her and Kanye when they're alone together because they haven't been getting on," says the friend. "She's terrified they could be on the verge of a split and is doing anything she can to avoid that."
