Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Divorcing, Report Claims

There may be some serious trouble in paradise for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, according to the latest report out of Page Six. The outlet reports that the two are going their separate ways and that a divorce is "imminent." Page Six notes that the reality star has hired celebrity divorce attorney Laura Wasser.

Rumors have been swirling around that the two may have hit a rocky road and saw those whispers become louder during the holidays. That's because West was seen spending the holidays away from the family, instead staying at his Wyoming ranch. An earlier report said West had no plans of coming back home after the trip. Page Six explains that this was because Kardashian wanted him to quietly get away while they get things settled. A source told the outlet that they are "keeping it low-key" and are currently in settlement talks. Adding some reasoning to why the two would move on from one another, the source noted Kardashian's desire to become a lawyer by completing her bar exam along with continuing to develop her prison reform campaign.

All of this comes after West had a tumultuous 2020 that saw him insert himself into the presidential race while later having his mental health struggles come to the forefront during a Twitter rant. In those series of posts in July, West accused Kardashian of trying to "bring a doctor to lock me up." He even mentioned divorce when he wrote in another tweet, "I been trying to get divorced since Kim met with [Meek Mill] at the Waldorf for 'prison reform'." All of those tweets have since been deleted. The Page Six story has a separate source from West's camp that the "Jesus Walks" rapper was sick of the reality show family, and that he wanted to move on from everything associated with them. On Keeping Up With the Kardashians, which will be coming to an end in 2021, West would make infrequent appearances, typically in the background. That same source, he found the show "unbearable."

Kardashian and West tied the knot in 2014 during a wedding in Italy. They have four children: North, 7, Saint, 5, Chicago, 2, and a one-year-old son, Psalm. If the Page Six report is true, this would mark Kardashian's third divorce. She previously was married to basketball player Kris Humphries and music producer Damon Thomas. For the former, Kardashian also used Wasser as her attorney.
