The pain is real. Hollywood is currently mourning the relationship of one of its most beloved power couples, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. Or, for short, “Kimye.”
Kardashian has officially filed for divorce from West after almost 7 years of marriage. The two began dating in 2012 and have 4 young children together: daughters North and Chicago and sons Saint and Psalm. The decision to divorce comes after a period of separation and tension for the couple in the second half of 2020.
According to Page Six, Kim and Kanye have been living separate lives for a couple months now. Kanye spent the holidays at the couple’s ranch in Wyoming rather than spending it with the Kardashian family in the L.A. area.
Who can forget West’s twitter rant this past July? The series of tweets followed one of West’s presidential campaign rallies in which he emotionally told the world that he and Kardashian had contemplated aborting their first child, North.
“I almost killed my daughter…so even if my wife were to divorce me after this speech, she brought North into the world, even when I didn’t want to,” said West.
The outburst is suspected to be a result of a bipolar episode. The next day, Kanye began tweeting negative things about his wife and other members of the Kardashian family.
In the since deleted tweets, Kanye said that he wanted to divorce Kardashian, called her mother, Kris Jenner, “Kris Jong-Un,” and said that the Kardashian family were attempting to force him to get psychiatric help.
A source tells Page Six that Kardashian feels as if she has done a lot to try and help West with his mental health issues, but has finally reached her limit.
“She is serious about taking the bar exam and becoming a lawyer, she is serious about her prison reform campaign,” says their source. “Meanwhile Kanye is talking about running for president and saying other crazy s–t, and she’s just had enough of it.”
A different source tells Page Six that West has become “increasingly uncomfortable and irritated” with the entire Kardashian family and their extravagant lifestyles. The source also notes that Kanye hates the family’s insanely popular reality show, “Keeping up with the Kardashians.”
