Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are over. They have reportedly called it quits on their marriage.
According to multiple sources, “divorce is imminent“.
“They are keeping it low-key but they are done,” one of the sources says.
The couple’s relationship has been under pressure as Kanye deals with mental health struggles and was pursuing a presidential campaign that failed.
The couple had a few issues in their marriage last year. In December it was reported that the couple were living separate lives. Another source said the couple were “doing their own thing” and “spent a lot of time apart“.
“This isn’t the first time they’ve been talking about a split, but this time it is way, way more serious,” the source added.
Kim, 40, hasn’t been seen wearing her wedding ring, and Kanye, 43, stayed at his $14 million Wyoming Ranch over the holidays instead of spending it with the Kardashian family.
The source added that while Kim has done much in the past to protect and help Kanye deal with his mental health struggles, “Now this divorce is happening because Kim has grown up a lot”.
“She is serious about taking the bar exam and becoming a lawyer, she is serious about her prison reform campaign. Meanwhile, Kanye is talking about running for president and saying other crazy s–t, and she’s just had enough of it.”
Another source says Kanye has become increasingly irritated by the Kardashians. He is completely over the entire family and he wants nothing to do with them. “Unbearable” is the word he used to describe their reality show.
He also called Kris Jenner “Kris Jong-Un” and claimed that the Kardashians were trying to force him into psychiatric treatment.
Kanye reluctantly showed up for Kim’s extravagant $1 million-plus 40th birthday in Tahiti last October for just one day. “He showed up late and left early, he wouldn’t appear in any of their Instagram shots. All he did was bring over the hologram of Kim father, Robert Kardashian then got out of there as fast as he could,” the source added.
It’s been confirmed that divorce settlement talks have started and are in progress, but they were not yet at the point of deciding how their properties would be divided.
The source said the biggest sticking point in their settlement talks could be over their Calabasas, California, family home, which underwent a total redesign masterminded by Kanye.
The couple worked on their all-white, minimalist home with Belgian designer Axel Vervoordt. They bought the house for $40 million and spent $20 million on renovations.
The source said, “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.”
Both Kanye and Kim are yet to publicly comment on the reports.
Kim and Kanye were married in 2014 in an over-the-top ceremony in Italy. They have four children: daughter North, 7, son Saint, 5, daughter Chicago, who turns 3 next week, and son Psalm, 19 months.
