Kim Kardashian West Shares First Photo With Kanye West Since Divorce Rumors Surfaced
Kim Kardashian West may have considered calling it quits from Kanye West, but after spending some quality time together, it seems divorce is no longer on the table.
On Aug. 23, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star shared her first photo with the rapper since his controversial Twitter rant back in July. While many were convinced Kardashian West had finally reached her breaking point with West, it appears the pair are back on good terms as they continue to prioritize their marriage.
Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West recently experienced a rift in their marriage
The West’s marital problems started on Jul. 19, when the rapper held his very first presidential rally in South Carolina.
During the event, the rapper shockingly revealed some personal information about their relationship, which quickly swept the internet.
After his controversial statements made headlines, West took to Twitter to call out his wife for trying to fly to his Wyoming ranch with two doctors to “lock [him] up.” He also called out her mom, Kris Jenner, for “ignoring” his phone calls and said she was not allowed around their kids: North, 7, Saint, 4, Chicago, 2, and Psalm, 1.
But the most shocking claim of all came when West revealed he wanted to divorce Kardashian West in a since-deleted tweet. “I been trying to get divorced since Kim met with Meek at the Warldolf for ‘prison reform,'” he wrote. “Meek is my man and was respectful. That’s my dog Kim was out of line.”
Despite the Grammy-winner taking some major jabs at his wife, the KKW Beauty mogul kept quiet regarding his behavior. But a few days after his Twitter tirade, Kardashian West issued a statement on Instagram where she acknowledged West’s mental health struggles and asked the media to show compassion.
After sharing her statement, West publicly apologized to the reality star on Twitter, writing, ‘To Kim I want to say I know I hurt you. Please forgive me. Thank you for always being there for me.’
KimYe just took a family trip to ‘save’ their marriage
Though he set out to right his wrongs and apologized to his wife, West still kept her at a distance as he shot down almost every attempt she made to try to see him in Wyoming.
After several failed attempts, Kardashian West finally reunited with the rapper at their second residence in the Mountain State. Upon her arrival, the SKIMS founder was photographed crying while having what appeared to be a heated conversation with her husband.
At the time, sources reported that Kardashian West was prepared to end their relationship, but it was later revealed West had suggested they take a family trip to potentially save their marriage, which the reality star agreed to.
“She wants to do everything she can to save her marriage,” the source told People. “It’s all very complicated though. Kim wants him to get proper help, and Kanye still doesn’t want to. Kim is just taking things day by day right now.”
The couple and their four kids reportedly traveled to the Dominican Republic for a week. While there, KimYe focused “on their marriage” as they enjoyed spending quality time as a family.
“They decided to travel together so they can be away in private,” an insider revealed. “Between the kids, work, and dealing with Kanye’s bipolar episodes, it’s been hard for her to think clearly.”
Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West are spending more quality time together
Since returning home from the Dominican Republic, the Wests have been prioritizing their marriage, and so far, it seems their efforts are working.
On Aug. 23, Kardashian West took to Instagram to share several photos of herself and her family during a recent trip to Dunton River Camp, Colorado.
In the last snapshot of the slideshow, the mom of four can be seen posing alongside West, sister Kourtney Kardashian, and family friend Harry Hudson, marking the first photo she has shared of her husband since break-up rumors made headlines.
The photo comes days after West shared a video on Twitter of the pair kissing during what appeared to be a Sunday Service concert.
‘WE’RE STEPPING OUT ON FAITH,’ he captioned the clip, shared on Aug. 19.
While the future of KimYe’s marriage remains unclear, it seems to us that they aren’t calling it quits anytime soon.
