Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are brushing off the rumors.
A source close to the couple tells ET that nothing has changed between them, despite reports that the two are having marital troubles after a very difficult year that included Kim's Paris robbery and Kanye's recent hospitalization.
"Kim and Kanye have to work at their marriage, just like any couple. Of course there are some bumps in the road at times, but that's not unlike any other marriage. It takes work," the source says. "They are definitely still together and more madly in love than ever."
"Kim is slowly getting back to her normal routine. She finally feels ready to get back out in public, but she is doing it little by little," the source adds. "She does not having any work commitments on her plate until the new year. She went to Shelli Azoff’s big holiday party last week as well. Shelli is like another mother to Kim, it was important for her to be there.”
An eyewitness tells ET that Kim and Kanye had a romantic dinner together on Sunday night at the Giorgio Baldi restaurant in Santa Monica, California. "When she got to the car, she paused and made it a point to look back at [Kanye] and make sure he was OK," the eyewitness said, noting the couple arrived with three bodyguards. "She looked strong and so happy."
