Kim Kardashian and husband Kanye West looked stone-faced

Kim Kardashian took to the water with her daughter as she and husband Kanye West put their troubles aside for a family day on a lake. For weeks, the 39-year-old reality star and her 43-year-old rap star husband have been battling speculation that their marriage is on the rocks.

Speculation that was intensified when Kanye sensationally claimed during a Twitter outburst that he had been trying to divorce his reality star wife for the past two years. On Saturday, the couple appeared to force some happy(ish) faces upon themselves as they enjoyed a family day taking in water-based sports on a lake.

Kim shared a small collection of photographs that showed her dressed in a skin-tight wetsuit with a black and yellow life-vest. The TV star looked confident as she took command of a paddleboard with her daughter, North West, perched on the front of the board.

Kim had her hair tightly pleated back, and added an element of cool with a pair of statement sunglasses - and added a futuristic edge with some ambiguous white trainers.

Kanye joined his wife at the shore where he posed for a photo by squatting alongside his wife while wearing a brightly coloured hooded top, shorts, and matching trainers. Kim’s sister, Kourtney Kardashian, was also in attendance at the shore of the lake.

Kim shared her collection of photos along with a simple surfing emoji. Over the past few weeks, there has been speculation that Kim and Kanye’s six-year marriage could soon be coming to an end. For months, there has been speculation that the couple is barely talking and living apart inside their collection of giant mansions.

While Kanye forced a rift between his wife into the open when he declared they had planned to abort their eldest child when Kim first fell pregnant during a chaotic Presidential Election rally in North Carolina.

He later took to Twitter to declare he had been trying to divorce Kim for two years, claimed she had been trying to get doctors to have him “locked up”, and accused mother-in-law Kris Jenner of being a white supremacist. The couple were soon after spotted having crisis talks in their car outside a branch of the fast-food chain, Wendy’s – but more recently went to the Dominican Republic to work on their marriage.
