Yet another divorce, one more couple is parting ways and its none other than ‘Kim Kardashian‘ and ‘Kanye West’. Times are harder for the duo and they are reportedly getting a divorce.
On Jan. 5, a source reportedly claimed “divorce is imminent,” as Kim has hired celebrity divorce attorney Laura Wasser. Kanye reportedly spent the holidays at his Wyoming ranch instead of with his wife and children in Lake Tahoe, and Kim Kardashian has reportedly been spotted without her wedding ring.
Meanwhile some other source reported that divorce is on the table, but that the couple is currently in marriage counseling trying to make things work. According to TMZ reports, Kimye’s marriage has been in “deep trouble” since the second half of 2020, and that the couple has been in counseling. The publication also reports that while they haven’t “given up,” their reported sources claim fans shouldn’t “bet against” divorce.
In 2016, Us Weekly reported Kim Kardashian and Kanye’s marriage initially began to strain following Kim’s Paris robbery in October of that year. A source reportedly told the publication the ordeal “left West [Kanye] paranoid and ‘completely freaked out.’” In November 2016, Kanye was hospitalized for “extreme exhaustion” after he reportedly didn’t sleep for a week and began acting “paranoid and psychotic” at his trainer’s house in L.A. Kim reportedly remained at his bedside throughout and, according to a source, felt “relieved” he was getting help. “She thinks this is what it will take to save him — and help their marriage,” the source reportedly claimed.
Their relationship made headlines again in May 2018, when Kanye sparked controversy by asserting slavery was “a choice” during an appearance on TMZ Live. A month later, the rapper told that he was worried Kim would leave him due to his controversial comments.
Earlier this year, Kanye revealed in one of his tweets he wanted to divorce Kim Kardashian, before heading on a tropical vacation to try and repair their relationship.
Are Kim and Kanye Divorcing?
The site adds that Kim is now hoping to get Kanye‘s key to their home in Calabasas.
“Kim is trying to get Kanye to turn over the Calabasas house to her, because that’s where the kids are based and growing up. That is their home..she owns all the land and adjoining lots around the house but Kanye owns the actual house. They’ve both put a lot of money into renovating it.”
If the divorce goes through, this would be Kim‘s third. She was previously married to basketball star Kris Humphries and Damon Thomas.
The reality star and rapper were longtime friends before they began dating in 2012. They got married in a lavish Italian ceremony in 2014 following her divorce from Kris Humphries, and share four children together: North, 7, Saint, 5, Chicago, 2, and Psalm, 1.
