2021 is not a good start for Kanye West and Kim Kardashian-West. They are getting a divorce.
Yes, Kim and Kanye are over.
According to Page Six, the couple’s divorce is imminent. Kim hired divorce attorney to the stars, Laura Wasser.
“They are keeping it low-key but they are done. Kim has hired Laura Wasser and they are in settlement talks.”
The 40-year old reality star has not been wearing her wedding ring while 43-year old Kanye stayed at his $14 million Wyoming ranch over the holidays instead of spending it with the Kardashian family, who drew criticism for their extravagant celebrations.
“Kim got Kanye to go up to Wyoming so they could live separate lives and quietly get things sorted out to separate and divorce. She’s done,” a source says.
The source adds that while Kim has done much in the past “to protect and help Kanye deal with his mental health struggles,” the divorce is happening because Kim is totally done with Kanye.
“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.”
Kanye himself is done with the Kardashians. He has became increasingly uncomfortable and irritated by the Kim’s family’s over-the-top reality star lives.
“Kanye is completely over the entire family. He wants nothing to do with them and he finds their reality show unbearable,” a source reveals.
Back in July 2020, Kanye tweeted about divorcing Kim after she met rapper Meek Mill when they attended a criminal justice summit in November 2018.
He tweeted: “I been trying to get divorced since Kim met with Meek at the Warldolf [sic] for ‘prison reform.”
Kanye also referred to Kim’s mother and manager, Kris Jenner, as “Kris Jong-Un” after he was forced into psychiatric treatment.
Last October 2020, Kanye reluctantly showed up for Kim’s extravagant $1 million-plus 40th birthday in Tahiti for just one day.
“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,” the source added.
The biggest battle in the Kimye divorce settlement would be their family home in Calabasas, California, which underwent a total redesign by Kanye and was featured in Architectural Digest.
They reportedly paid $40 million for the house and spent $20 million on renovations.
“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. She owns all the land and adjoining lots around the house but Kanye owns the actual house. They’ve both put a lot of money into renovating it. This isn’t the first time they’ve been talking about a split, but this time it is way, way more serious,” a source says.
This would be Kim’s third divorce. She previously hired Wasser for her divorce from basketball player Kris Humphries whom she married in 2011 and divorced in 2013.
In 2000, Kim married Damon Thomas and got divorced in 2004.
Kim and Kanye were married in 2014 in a ceremony in Italy. They have four children: daughter North, 7, son Saint, 5, daughter Chicago, 3 and son Psalm, 19 months.
As of June 2020, Kim Kardashian’s net worth is $900 million. Kanye West is worth $1.3 billion.
