World’s most-followed celebrity couple ‘Kimye’’s relationship is no more. According to reports, reality-tv show superstar Kim Kardashian has filed for divorce from rapper, singer and fashion celebrity Kanye West in the LA Superior Court on Friday. The couple has decided to go their separate way after six and a half years of marriage. The divorce filing is the final nail in the coffin of the relationship of one of the most loved celebrity couples in the 21st century. The couple has 4 kids, all the fame they could ask for, and a vast fortune to show for it.
Why is Kim filing divorce from Kanye West?
According to TMZ, the first crack in the relationships started to appear during the first half of 2020 when Kanye West launched his Presidential campaign on July 4. Weeks later, the rapper held a campaign event in South Carolina where he told a private story of a discussion between him and Kim. The story was not only way too personal, but it was also bizarre.
After a few weeks, Kanye posted a few pictures of the Kardashian/Jenner family on Twitter and referred to Kim’s mother Kris Jenner as “Kris Jong-Un”. TMZ claims that multiple sources told them that Kim was through with Kanye’s outbursts and was ready to call it quits had it not been Kanye himself going through a bipolar episode. Kim thought it would have been cruel on her part to end the marriage when Kanye was struggling so much.
Things got so bad for the celebrity couple that they started living separately and didn’t spend much time together as a married couple. Kanye was spending his time in Wyoming while Kim was giving all her time to her kids in Calabasas.
Sources report that the divorce is quite amicable and cite differences in lifestyle and politics as the main reasons for the end.
