Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Are Living Apart For Now
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have had a rough few months, if reports are to be believed.
The couple reportedly hit a rough patch in their marriage earlier in the summer when West revealed personal details about their lives to the public. Amid speculation that they were headed for divorce, the Wests allegedly began taking several measures to save their relationship, including several vacations together with their four children.
Reports say that they allegedly are also living in different spaces, with the Yeezus rapper hunkering down at his ranch in Wyoming and Kardashian West spending her time at their Calabasas home. Neither of them has addressed the reports, but here’s what we know so far.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s reported marital problems date back to July 2020
The drama began on July 19, when West held his first campaign rally for his 2020 presidential campaign in South Carolina, where he revealed he and his wife had considered aborting their eldest daughter, North, who was born in June 2013.
As the rally attracted global attention, sources claimed Kardashian was “upset” and that her marriage to the Yeezy designer had allegedly started to deteriorate due to his behavior. The makeup mogul herself did not comment at the time, but West claimed on Twitter that she had been contacting him and trying to fly to Wyoming with doctors to “lock him up.”
After days of public silence, Kardashian West later shared a statement on Instagram implying that West had been struggling with bipolar disorder before asking the world for compassion. She went to see him on July 27 at his ranch and was seen crying as they conversed.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West took several family vacations after the blow-up
As their rumored marital woes continued to make headlines, West offered up an apology to the reality star via Twitter. In early August, he reportedly traveled to the Caribbean with her and their kids in what a source told People was an attempt to work and focus on their marriage.
Page Six reported that they spent a week in the Dominican Republic before flying to Colorado in mid-August to continue their family trip. The couple reportedly stayed in a $43,000 ranch in the San Juan Mountains before West returned to Wyoming and Kardashian West went back to California, per TMZ.
A source told People that Wyoming is where West “wants to live” and that his wife was “happy to be back in L.A.”
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s plans for their future are not known
So far, the Wests have not commented on the state of their marriage or their plans for the future. In recent weeks, the Graduation rapper has limited his social media presence while Kardashian West has shifted her attention back to her business pursuits.
“At this point in time, Kim doesn’t feel like talking about it,” a source who is supposedly close to the family told HollywoodLife in a recent report. “She doesn’t bring him up and is keeping what’s happening with him very, very private. She’s in her normal, good mood, and you wouldn’t know if something was going on with her or her marriage.”
Though it might sound like they are on two different trajectories, their recent moves suggest that they really do want to stay married and are trying to find a system that works best for them.
