Watch: Jonathan Cheban Comments on Kim & Kanye Divorce Rumors

Trouble in Kimye's marriage? Not so fast according to Jonathan Cheban.

As Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's relationship continues to be put under a microscope, one of the couple's closest friends is speaking out and making one thing clear: These two are doing just fine.

"I just FaceTimed with Kim and Kanye and everyone's talking about some divorce rumors and I was laughing because I didn't hear that all day and I guess everybody else apparently here did and it's so funny to me because it's so not true," Jonathan told E! News at the Holiday Party. "I don't know where people come up with stories but it's literally hysterical but Jennifer Aniston has also been pregnant like 1,000 times so it's kind of a joke."

The self-proclaimed Food God added, "They're in good spirits. I don't want to talk much about them because it's not my business but I do have to say that the divorcing is kind of hysterical, that I will mention, because I just spoke to both of them on FaceTime literally before I was coming here and when I heard that I literally burst out laughing."

Keeping Up With Kimye

While close friends can chuckle about the speculation, there's no question that the past couple of months have been challenging for both Kim and Kanye.

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star continues to recover from her Paris robbery while Kanye remains committed to outpatient treatment after being hospitalized for exhaustion.  

"It's been a very hard couple of months," a family source shared with E! News. Another insider added, "She has many things on her plate, so being overwhelmed is expected."

Fortunately, the couple has family holiday celebrations to look forward to. In addition, the Hollywood pair has their children North West and Saint West who certainly leave quite the positive impression on those around them.

"I love them. I am obsessed with them both. They are so cute and I literally think they are the cutest kids ever," Jonathan shared with E! News while at Vandal. "Saint I'm in love with. I think Saint should be a Gerber baby. I'm putting it out there."
