Kim Kardashian has formally filed for a divorce from her rapper and music producer husband Kanye West. In addition to the Reality TV star and model filing for a divorce on Friday, February 19, she also demanded joint legal and physical custody of the couple’s four kids.
It would seem the couple’s relationship had taken a turn for the worst as an insider had this to say:
“It’s gotten to the point where they haven’t spent time together as a married couple in months”. “They’ve seen each other for the sake of the kids but have been living separately. Kim knows the marriage is over. She’s known for a while.”
The couple’s four kids North West, 7, Saint West, 5, Chicago West, 3, and Psalm West, 20 months had been the reason why Kim had held off the divorce, the insider insinuated.
“It’s not about the marriage anymore, she’ll always care for Kanye but it’s over between them,” added the source. “Kim is only focused on what’s best for the kids. It’s a tough decision for her and she’s figuring it out.
As the couple’s relationship deteriorated to the point of not communicating, Kanye had to move out in February to his Wyoming ranch while Kim continued to stay in L.A.
At the center of their relationship, however, remained the children. As the insider put it, “They are still a family and they come together for the kids.”
Despite the friction, Kanye and Kim have had their fine moments, an example would be when Kanye made a hologram of Kim’s late father, Robert Kardashian, to wish her a happy 40th.
