Did ‘Keeping up With the Kardashians’ Put a Strain on Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West’s Marriage? The Rapper Reportedly Found the Reality Show ‘Unbearable’
After enduring a challenging year filled with controversial presidential campaigns, tweetstorms, and ongoing divorce rumors, Kardashian West and West’s relationship has broken down to a point of no return. According to reports, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star is looking to end her union with the rapper after six years of marriage. While several factors played into the couple wanting to go their separate ways, it seems that Kardashian West’s family might also be to blame for KimYe’s relationship deteriorating.
Kim Kardashian West is reportedly preparing to divorce Kanye West
Kardashian West and West’s marriage is on the verge of ending, and we honestly don’t know how to feel.
According to a recent report by Page Six, a “divorce is imminent” for the powerhouse couple who have been battling marital issues for the last few months.
Insiders tell the outlet that Kardashian West has already started discussing her options with celebrity divorce attorney Laura Wasser as she has officially reached her breaking point with “Flashing Lights” rapper.
“They are keeping it low-key but they are done,” the source shares. “Kim has hired Laura Wasser, and they are in settlement talks.”
A separate source tells People, “[Kanye] knows that she’s done. She has had enough, and she told him that she wants some space to figure out her future,” adding that West is bracing himself for a filing but doesn’t know when it will take place.
KimYe’s respective career ambitions allegedly tore them apart
Though previous reports claimed that Kardashian West and West were in a good place in their marriage, the KKW Beauty mogul recently signaled an impending divorce when she was photographed without her wedding ring over the holidays.
She even spent the festive season with her kids and the rest of the Kardashian family instead of her husband, who has reportedly been living solo at his $14 million Wyoming ranch for the last few months.
“Kim got Kanye to go up there [Wyoming] so they could live separate lives and quietly get things sorted out to separate and divorce,” the insider told Page Six. “She’s done.”
Reports claim Kanye West is over the Kardashian family
Though living apart hasn’t helped KimYe get their relationship back to where it used to be, it turns out that this isn’t the only factor impacting their marriage.
In addition to West’s controversial presidential rally in July 2020, his headline-making Twitter sprees, and his mental health struggles, it’s been reported that the couple’s respective careers have also played a part in their marriage deteriorating.
According to Page Six, West has been focused on furthering his political campaign while Kardashian West has been putting in the work to become a lawyer.
Though the KUWTK star was supportive of her husband’s run for the presidency, insiders claim that the rapper’s political aspirations are what ultimately drove her to want to end their marriage.
“Now this divorce is happening because Kim has grown up a lot,” the source shared with the outlet. “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 sh*t, and she’s just had enough of it.”
But it seems Kardashian West isn’t the only one who’s officially over this marriage.
A separate source tells Page Six that West has had enough as well, namely with Kardashian West’s famous family and their over-the-top lifestyle.
West “is completely over the entire family…He wants nothing to do with them,” the source says, adding that he also finds their hit reality show “unbearable.”
But despite his feelings toward the Kardashian-Jenners, the famous family are still supportive of West and whatever decision he and the KKW Beauty mogul make regarding their future together.
“Kris Jenner and Kim’s sisters are being as supportive as possible,” an insider tells People. “They’ve seen Kim struggle over the last year and ultimately just want both her and Kanye to be happy, however that may look.”
