Kim Kardashian and Kanye West appear to be calling it quits, according to a new report. A source said to Page Six that “divorce is imminent” for the two.
It has also been reported that Kim has hired Laura Wasser, the powerful divorce attorney who has previously represented Angelina Jolie, Heidi Klum, and Kardashian herself during her 2011 divorce from Kris Humphries. “They are keeping it low-key but they are done,” the source further claimed. “Kim has hired Laura Wasser and they are in settlement talks.”
Meanwhile, E! News reports that the couple is going their separate ways, but Kardashian has yet to officially file for divorce because she wants to be sure she’s “making the right decision for the kids,” an insider says.
Just last month, Kim and Kanye West had shared how they both were focused on their children and their individual goals – Kim on her passion to fight prison reform and Kanye on his music.
Though they have been one of the most famous couples in the world for their entire marriage, they have long endured their share of struggles, many of them linked to Kanye’s mental health battles.
The couple were last pictured together at Kim’s extravagant 40th birthday celebration that caused much condemnation as the star flew out a group of her friends and family to a private island.
Social media users found Kim’s posts tone deaf during a time when the world was going through a deadly pandemic and most people did not have the privilege to be around their nearest and dearest.
Kanye was reportedly not with his family during Christmas but was isolated at his lavish Wyoming ranch. The couple began dating in 2012 then the 40-year-old reality star married the hip-hop icon, 43, in May 2014. They share four children: North, 7, Saint, 5, Chicago, 2, and Psalm, 1.
TMZ also reports the two have been living separately for a few months and that their relationship was “in deep trouble for the last half of 2020,” with the pair reportedly in marriage counselling.
“Kim got Kanye to go up there [to Wyoming] so they could live separate lives and quietly get things sorted out to separate and divorce. She’s done,” Page Six’s insider echoed. Similarly, E! News’ source claims that “Kim knows the marriage is over. She’s known for a while.”
