Justin Bieber is trying to save close pal Kanye West’s marriage to reality TV star Kim Kardashian.
Kanye, 43, made bizarre claims that he has wanted to divorce wife and mum-of-four Kim, 39, for more than two years.
Superstar Bieber, 26, joined the rapper at his ranch in Wyoming on Friday.
He is believed to have turned marriage counsellor to try to mend the six-year marriage at the request of Kim’s older sister Kourtney, 41.
A source said: “Justin has been through his own very public breakdown and he wants to help Kanye as much as he can.
“He’s also trying to mediate between him and the family as he’s very close to the Kardashians – particularly Kourtney.
“It was Kourtney who asked him to go and see Kanye, she thinks Justin will be a positive influence on him.
“All of the Kardashian sisters are rallying round Kim and trying to support her as much as possible.”
Kanye, nicknamed Yeezy, uploaded a photo of himself with Justin to his Twitter account and wrote: “DD & JB discussing the new spray foam wall prototypes on the YZY campus.”
Justin, who married model Hailey Baldwin, 23, in 2018, has become closer to Kanye since he signed with the pop singer’s manager, Scooter Braun.
Kanye, who declared earlier this month that he is running for US President, flew to Wyoming after having a breakdown on stage during his first campaign rally in South Carolina on Sunday.
During the impassioned speech, he included a claim that he and Kim almost aborted their first child North, seven.
And in one tweet last week, he claimed he had been “trying to get divorced” from Kim since she met another rapper at a hotel in November 2018. Kim and Meek Mill both attended a Criminal Justice Reform Summit at a hotel in Los Angeles.
Kanye, who is bipolar, also accused Kim and her mum Kris Jenner of “white supremacy” and threatened to bar his mother-in-law from seeing his children.
Referring to rapper Mill, he wrote: “I been trying to get divorced since Kim met with Meek. Meek is my man and was respectful. That’s my dog, Kim was out of line.”
Another tweet from Kanye read: “Kris and Kim put out a statement without my approval … that’s not what a wife should do. White supremacy.”
He also made wild claims that King of Pop Michael Jackson, who died in 2009, was murdered.
Kim told fans online after Kanye spoke out: “As many of you know, Kanye has bipolar 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 my 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.
“Those that understand mental illness… know the family is powerless unless the person is a minor.
“People who are unaware or far removed from this experience can be judgemental and not understand the individual has to engage in the process of getting help, no matter how hard family and friends try.”
