Kourtney Kardashian put her family drama to one side on Wednesday night to enjoy dinner with friends at celebrity hotspot Nobu in Los Angeles.
Concern has grown for the rapper’s mental health in recent weeks after he broke down in tears at a presidential rally, accused Kim of cheating on him with Meek Mill and called his mother-in-law Kris Jenner ‘Kris Jong-Un’.

But Kourtney gave no hint of the family drama as she was pictured laughing and joking with a male pal while leaving the restaurant.
The eldest Kardashian sister, 41, showed off her sartorial style in leather trousers and a matching jacket. She wore her hair in a sleek bun and accessorised her outfit with a black clutch bag and simple heels.
In keeping with government guidelines amid the coronavirus pandemic, Kourtney wore a pale pink face mask.

Kourtney’s outing comes after her younger sister Kim took to Instagram on Wednesday morning following husband Kanye’s late night Twitter meltdown.
The reality star said she feels she is ‘powerless’ and called the rapper, 43, ‘brilliant but complicated’.
Kim said ‘his words sometimes do not align with his intentions’ after Kanye last night claimed he has been ‘trying to get divorced’ from Kim since she met his fellow rapper Meek Mill at a hotel.
In his latest rambling Twitter outburst, West said that Kim was ‘out of line’ to meet Meek Mill to talk about ‘prison reform’, and blasted her mother Kris Jenner as ‘Kris Jong-Un’ while accusing the pair of ‘white supremacy’.

Sharing three pages to her Instagram story Kim said: ‘Those that understand mental illness or even compulsive behavior know that the family is powerless unless the member is a minor.’
She told her 180 million followers: ‘I understand Kanye is subject to criticism because he is a public figure and his actions at times can cause strong opinions and emotions. He is a brilliant but complicated person who on top of the pressures of being an artist and a black man, who experienced the painful loss of his mother, and has to deal with the pressure and isolation that is heightened by his bi-polar disorder.
‘Those who are close with Kanye know his heart and understand his words some times do not align with his intentions.’

West on Tuesday repeated his claim that his wife and mother-in-law had ‘tried to fly in with two doctors’ to have him hospitalised amid concerns about his well-being after his bizarre entry into the 2020 presidential race.
‘Kris and Kim put out a statement without my approval… that’s not what a wife should do,’ Kanye said.
The Stronger hitmaker deleted his late-night tweets barely half an hour after posting them, except for a final post in which he signed them off as coming from ‘the future president’.

Split on the cards? Kanye claimed he has been ‘trying to get divorced’ from Kim Kardashian since she met his fellow rapper Meek Mill at the Waldorf Hotel
Kim wrote in her statement: ‘As many of you know, Kanye has bi-polar disorder. Anyone who has this or has a loved one in their life who does, knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand.
‘I’ve never spoken publicly about how this has affected us at home because I am very protective of our children and Kanye’s right to privacy when it comes to his health. But today, I feel like I should comment on it because of the stigma and misconceptions about mental health.
‘People who are unaware or far removed from this experience can be judgmental and not understand that the individual themselves have to engage in the process of getting help no matter how hard family and friends try.
‘Living with bi-polar disorder does not diminish or invalidate his dreams and his creative ideas, no matter how big or unobtainable they may feel to some. That is part of his genius and as we have all witnessed, many of his big dreams have come true.’
Kanye’s shock divorce claim comes after sources had alleged that Kim and Kanye are already ‘living apart’ and have been ‘at each other’s throats’ with ‘daily bust-ups’ during lockdown.
The couple married in 2014 and have four children; North, Saint, Chicago, two, and Psalm, 14 months.
