Since then, she's worked in beauty and fashion and has married rapper Kanye West, who she has 15-month-old daughter North with.

Recently hackers have distributed nude photos of celebrities, stolen from their iCloud accounts, online. Kim, 33, was targeted, and it's thought the resulting backlash is causing her some concern.

It was reported the nude snaps, thought to have been taken before she married Kanye, 37, in May, enraged her husband. And this alleged tension is apparently taking its toll on the couple.

"Kim is devastated by Kanye's reaction," the insider continued. "He was outraged that his wife's privacy was abused, and said that no one should be allowed to see Kim that intimately.

"Kim's trying to diffuse the drama but Kanye is very protective of her and North. He thinks it's disgraceful that people have done this to her."
