The couple is over. According to sources, the divorce is ‘imminent’ between the two A-list celebrities and a divorce lawyer, Laura Wasser has been hired. “They are keeping it low-key but they are done,” says a source. “Kim has hired Laura Wasser and they are in settlement talks.”
Kim hasn’t been wearing her wedding ring and Kanye din’t attend the Kardashian’s Christmas festivities. Kanye West spends most of his time at the family’s 14 million dollar Wyoming ranch as he spent a lot of the past few months there because he wanted the two to live separate lives and doesn’t want ‘anything to do with her right now’ a source mentioned.
The source added that while Kim has done much in the past to protect and help Kanye with his mental health struggles, “Now this divorce is happening because Kim has grown up a lot. 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.”
Meanwhile, a separate source says Kanye, who became increasingly uncomfortable and irritated by the Kardashians’ over-the-top reality star lives, “Is completely over the entire family. He wants nothing to do with them,” adding he eventually found their reality show “unbearable.”
The two have been living completely separate lives at this point so their divorce can play out peacefully and not infant of any of their family members. Kanye actually has tweeted this year that he has been trying to divorce Kim since 2018 “I been trying to get divorced since Kim met with Meek at the Warldolf for ‘prison reform’” said Kanye. He also called momager Kris Jenner “Kris Jong-Un” and claimed that the Kardashians were trying to force him into psychiatric treatment. Sources also confirm that Kim is completely done with Kanye.
The source said, “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.”
Explaining, “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.”
The source added of the advanced settlement talks, “This isn’t the first time they’ve been talking about a split, but this time it is way, way more serious.”
Another source confirmed to us that divorce settlement talks were underway, but they were not yet at the point of deciding how their properties would be divided.
This would be Kim’s third divorce. She previously hired Wasser for her divorce from basketball player Kris Humphries. The LA divorce lawyer is well-known to advocate for her clients to negotiate and agree a confidential settlement before any divorce papers are filed in court. Because LA divorces are more public than in New York, this ensures that more of the proceedings remain secret.
Kim and Kanye were married in 2014 in an over-the-top ceremony in Italy. They have four children: daughter North, 7, son Saint, 5, daughter Chicago, who turns 3 next week, and son Psalm, 19 months. Both of them haven’t commented yet but we wish them all the best going forward in life.
