A robbery at gunpoint, endless publicity nightmares and the occasional bid for presidency; Kim and Kanye have been through a lot. But apparently one of the most recognised couples in the world have had enough: they're calling it quits, according to several sources 'close' to the pair.
Page Six has reported that "divorce is imminent" for them, with sources saying that "they are done". "Kim has hired Laura Wasser and they are in settlement talks."
If you consider Kimye's recent movements, the news isn't actually all that surprising. Apparently Kanye stayed in Wyoming for the holidays, while Kim was in their home in LA with their four children, as well as holidaying in Lake Tahoe and at her sister Kourtney's Christmas celebrations. Kanye is notably absent from all these events, and Kim has also been photographed of late not wearing her wedding ring. All of this, according to reports, has been part of a strategic separation. "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 said.
As to why they're supposedly splitting? Page Six's sources say that Kim has "grown up a lot" and wants different things now. "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 shit, and she's just had enough of it."
The news comes after West's tweet in July last year (in the middle of a reported crisis relating to his bipolar disorder) that he's been trying to divorce Kim. "I been trying to get divorced since Kim met with Meek at the Warldolf (sic) for 'prison reform,'" Kanye wrote, likely referring to a criminal justice summit attended by Kim and rapper Meek Mill in November 2018.
Page Six also reports that Kanye was supposedly pretty unenthused about his wife's 40th birthday celebrations in Tahiti back in October (yes, those ones), referencing this very 2020 quote from their source: "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 her father Robert Kardashian, then got out of there as fast as he could."
Of course, all this divorce news could simply be the rumour mill in overdrive, as neither Kim nor Kanye have commented publicly yet about their supposed split. We'll keep you across it. Standby for the Hulu series trailer, we're sure Kris will drop it this week.
