Kanye West has been accused of cheating on Kim Kardashian as she struggled in the months after the birth of their second child.
The 44-year-old rapper allegedly hooked up with an "A-list singer" as his wife Kim struggled with her confidence in the months after the arrival of their son Saint, who is now five years old.
Sources have claimed that Kanye cheated on the Keeping Up With The Kardashian star while he was "mainly living in his bachelor pad in Hollywood."
The controversial rapper allegedly played away from home with a global star, who is a household name in their own right, sources have told The Sun.

An insider told the publication: 'Kanye cheated on Kim with an A-list singer.
"At the time it happened, Kanye was mainly living in his bachelor pad in Hollywood because it was closer to his studio and he wasn't going to go home to Kim and newborn baby when he'd been partying late in the studio."
Kim was putting herself through a punishing exercise schedule at the time, as she felt body-conscious after gaining weight during the pregnancy.
