Those who are near to the two parties have noted that Kim and Kanye have been living apart for some time, and that their individual aspirations are pulling them in opposite directions. “They have been living separately for the last few months,” a friend of Kardashian said in a statement. “They have been in marriage counseling and have discussed divorce, it’s on the table.” “There is no drama or contentious relationship” a second individual added. They are “amicable” and “fully aligned when it comes to the kids.”
One 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.” Elaborating on their respective goals, “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.”
While the situation is unfortunate, it comes as no surprise to many as the Grammy-winning artist’s behavior has been increasingly erratic over the years, stemming from his bipolar disorder coupled with other life events.
At press time, the divorce plans are, as yet, unconfirmed.
