It’s no secret that Kardashian West went through a lot in her marriage to West.

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star experienced many ups and downs in her union throughout the years. But in 2020, her marriage to West took a tumultuous turn.

Not only did she have to deal with the backlash surrounding the “Flashing Lights” rapper’s controversial presidential campaign, but she also put up with his outbursts on social media in which he put her and the Kardashian-Jenner family on blast.

But through it all, Kardashian West never stopped trying to be supportive of West. She even did all she could to keep their marriage intact.

Unfortunately, her attempts ended up not paying off because on February 19, 2021, Kardashian West filed for divorce from West, marking the end of their nearly seven-year marriage.
