Kim Kardashian's sudden reclusiveness may be due to her partner's increasing obsession with privacy, according to a report by American gossip magazine In Touch.
The magazine, citing sources close to Kardashian and partner Kanye West, claims the rapper is doing all he can to control the reality star's every move following the birth of their daughter North, and is reluctant to let her leave the house.
The rapper has reportedly brought in more security around the house and controls her every move.
"She has to do what he says. She knows the littlest thing can set him off. She knows not to push Kanye too far ... she's doing her best to keep him happy," a source close to Kardashian stated.
"The intrusion sets into everything from what Kim's wearing, to what she's tweeting. When the time comes for her to step out into public, he wants her to be wearing outfits he picked out for her. He's telling her sisters, mom - everyone - what they can and cannot post on twitter," the source said.
Kardashian, meanwhile stated in a recent blog posted on Celebuzz that she was having the most exciting experiences of her life.
"These past couple of weeks have been filled with the most exciting experiences of my life. I'm enjoying this time to fully embrace motherhood and spend time at home with my family," Kardashian said.
"I've been reading all of your messages and want to thank you all for your sweet thoughts and best wishes. It truly means everything to me. I am so blessed to have the support of my family and fans in this beautiful moment."
North West, already a celebrity, was introduced to her family earlier this month, during an Independence Day party on 4 July at the clan's Malibu beach house.
"Kim has taken North on a few play dates, but she can't do it with lots of people since she's still so small," a source told Us magazine. "They are both so in love with their little girl. He [father Kanye West] doesn't leave North for more than an hour," the source added.
