Kim Kardashian-West and Kanye West have been living separately for a few months already, and a divorce could be on the way soon.
As per Page Six, multiple sources have confirmed that Kardashian is "done" and that she is "in settlement talks" with powerful celebrity divorce attorney Laura Wasser. Wasser is the same attorney who represented Kardashian during her divorce from Kris Humphries in 2011, and also Angelina Jolie, Heidi Klum, Britney Spears, and Johnny Depp’s attorney.
Though this isn’t the first time they thought about splitting up, "but this time it is way, way more serious," says a source to Page Six. They said it's happening now "because Kim has grown up a lot."
It can be recalled that the couple has been on the news several times last year for their marriage. Rumors about divorce has been brewing since last year, but they have been attending marriage couseling and have been working on fixing their relationship.
TMZ reports that "the marriage was in deep trouble for the last half of 2020." There was also a point where Kardashian was ready to file for divorce, but when Kanye was struggling with his mental health, "she felt it was cruel to do it when he wasn't well."
The couple also haven't been living together for a couple of months and only see "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," a source told E! News.
Despite their marriage struggles, lifestyle indifferences, and unaligned political beliefs, Kardashian hasn't filed for anything and no final decision has been made yet. A source told E! News that "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," they added.
It was also noted that Kardashian wants to move forward and is thinking about her own mental health, too. "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," said Page Six.
Kardashian and West share four children together, North, 7, Saint, 5, Chicago, 2, and Psalm, 20 months.
