Inside The Kim Kardashian And Kanye West Divorce Rumors

It's safe to say 2020 was a mess all around, however the year was particularly stressful for Kim Kardashian and her husband, Kanye West. During the summer, headlines blared about West's mental health after the "All Falls Down" rapper took to Twitter to share his sporadic thoughts for hours on end. During these rants, he called his wife of six years "out of line" for meeting Meek Mill in 2018 to discuss criminal justice reform. 

"I've been trying to get divorced since Kim met with Meek at the Warldolf for 'prison reform,'" the father-of-four tweeted in July 2020, according to People. "Meek is my man and was respectful That's my dog Kim was out of line I'm worth 5 billion dollars and more than that through Christ But ya'll ain't listen to MJ and now ya'll believe them???"

While this since-deleted tweet was the only mention of divorce on West's end, it seems there's a possibility of the star getting what he asked for. Keep scrolling for the latest details on the couple's rumored "imminent" divorce

Has Kim Kardashian filed for divorce?

On Tuesday, Jan. 5, 2021, news broke that there's a possibility of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West ending their marriage. While no official paperwork has been filed, multiple sources (per Page Six) have reported that "divorce is imminent" for the high-profile couple. 

A source revealed, "They are keeping it low-key but they are done. Kim has hired Laura Wasser and they are in settlement talks." The source later added, "Kim got Kanye to go up there [Wyoming] so they could live separate lives and quietly get things sorted out to separate and divorce. She's done." 

The source even shared Kim's aspirations of becoming a lawyer and said she's "serious about taking the bar exam."

"She is serious about her prison reform campaign," the source revealed. "Meanwhile Kanye is talking about running for president and saying other crazy s–t, and she's just had enough of it."

As of this writing, there has been no official statement from either Kardashian or West.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West had been working on their marriage

Amidst reports that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's, or "Kimye," as their fans call them, relationship was on the rocks during the summer of 2020, sources claimed that the pair wanted nothing more than to save their marriage.

"Kim and Kanye have put a lot on hold professionally to be together with their family," a trusted source revealed to Entertainment Tonight in August 2020. "They spent time out of the country together and are back in the States continuing their vacation. Kim and Kanye love one another and want to work on saving their marriage." This report came after Kim posted a photo from the family vacation with Kanye.

The pair share four kids: North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm, whose wellbeing is their utmost priority. "The couple has had time to spend with their kids as well as discuss their future and what that looks like without anyone else getting involved," the source added. 

While the public could see that the relationship was definitely in need of some TLC, a source close to Hollywood Life said just weeks before the most recent split rumors that West and Kardashian saw their future together and were planning to keep it that way. "Kanye will always worship Kim. He loves her so much," the source told the publication. "He doesn't seem worried about losing Kim. Kim also isn't planning on leaving Kanye anytime soon." So, why the sudden split?

Kim Kardashian has tried to support Kanye West

Kim Kardashian has been open about Kanye West's mental health struggles in the past, but she never saw them as something her marriage couldn't handle.

"I think some of the hurtful things that I read online ... 'What is she doing? She's not stopping him.' .... Like, it's my fault if he does or says something that they don't agree with?" she reflected in an April 2019 Vogue interview about the complications surrounding West's bipolar disorder. "That's my husband. I share every opinion that I have and let him know when I think something's wrong. Or if it comes to him being in the middle of a bipolar episode, I'll do everything to be supportive and help to calm the situation," she continued.

Kardashian opened up about her husband's mental health struggles on her Instagram page following the rapper's concerning tweets in 2020, which included the rant about divorce and calling Kardashian's mom "Kris Jong-un," per The Sun. "Those who are close with Kanye know his heart and understand his words some times do not align with his intentions," Kardashian wrote. She also reminded her followers that West has bipolar disorder and was dealing with the pressures of being a Black man in Hollywood after losing his mom (per CNN). 

Despite Kardashian's support for West's mental health journey, it seems that she has simply reached her breaking point with her hubby's public antics, per Page Six's sources. Moreover, sources say West is done with his wife's reality TV lifestyle, too.

What is next for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West?

As they continue to live "separate lives," per sources close to Page Six, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West will prepare to formally file for and finalize their divorce. Sources say the biggest concern in their divorce, besides their kids, might be who will get to keep their stately Calabasas, Calif. mansion. The couple reportedly purchased their home for $40 million and spent $20 million on renovations to make it the minimalist dream that West spearheaded, Page Six said. 

While West owns the physical home, Kardashian owns the lots surrounding the property. "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," a source divulged to Page Six.

While an additional source said the couple has talked about divorce before, this is the most serious they've been about making their separate lives truly separate.
