Kim and Kanye’s love story is facing a major shakeup after six years of marriage and more than eight years together. The “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” reality TV star and “Jesus is King” rapper are effectively going their separate ways. However, reports confirm that Kim has not yet filed for divorce.
The celebrity couple share four children together, North West, 7, Saint West, 5, Chicago West, 2, and Psalm West, 20 months. “It’s gotten to the point where they haven’t spent time together as a married couple in months,” a source told E! News. “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.”
It is said that Kim hasn’t made the separation official because she wants to make sure she’s making the right decision for the kids. “It’s not about the marriage anymore, she’ll always care for Kanye but it’s over between them. Kim is only focused on what’s best for the kids. It’s a tough decision for her and she’s figuring it out.”- the source told the publication.
In the past few months, the couple’s relationship has been a rollercoaster ride, and it has faced increased pressure from both external and internal forces. Back in July, Kim spoke out for the first time publicly about Kanye’s mental health following a series of Twitter sprees about their family.
“As many of you know, Kanye has bi-polar [sic] disorder. Anyone who has this or has a loved one in their life who does, knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand,” Kim said in part. “I’ve never spoken publicly about how this has affected us at home because I am very protective of our children and Kanye’s right to privacy when it comes to his health. But today, I feel like I should comment on it because of the stigma and misconceptions about mental health.”
In her message to the public, Kim called for compassion and privacy for their family.
