Despite no actual paperwork being filed or official announcement being made to the press confirming their divorce, that hasn’t stopped a whole lot of sources surrounding Kim Kardashian and Kanye West from dishing to the press about exactly what went wrong with their relationship.
So far there’s been no information from the two central figures involved since the news first broke last week, but there has been an endless supply of anonymous intel. A source told Us Weekly on Friday that the couple has been keeping their distance from each other for the sake of their four children. “Kim and Kanye had no option but to live apart in the end because the communication between them had gotten so downright toxic,” an insider told the outlet. “They went into the latter part of 2020 with the very best of intentions and wanted to find a way to get along when they spent time together. But it reached the point where the bickering turned to nasty blowups and confrontations, and since neither of them wanted the kids exposed to that type of hostility, they [stayed] apart.” Kanye has reportedly been living primarily at the family’s Wyoming ranch, while Kim stays with the kids at their Hidden Hills, California mansion.
And while she hasn’t even begun the formal process of legally ending her marriage, Kim is apparently already ready to move on. A source told E! News that with the final season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians behind her and the drama over her impending divorce starting to settle, “Kim wants to feel at peace going into this new chapter of her life and is focused on herself and her children.” And if you’ve noticed the reality star has started clocking more hours at the gym and in Bible study, that’s apparently all part of her plan “to feel strong mentally and physically.” The source added, “She has been very busy with her business, which has been a blessing. She’s really focusing on the kids and their happiness as well.”
Naturally, Kim has the total support of her family, too. “All of the sisters are aware of the situation and are very supportive,” the source said. “They all love Kanye like a brother but agree it’s best they part ways.” And even Kim and Kanye have apparently made peace with the situation as the source reported that they, “have no bad blood and they are very cordial. He’s focusing on his world and she is focusing on her world.”
