The Capitol siege pushed Kim Kardashian and Kanye West out of the public’s mind for a week. It was sort of odd that the story got so pushed aside, just because in my experience, many gossip stories begin to pick up concurrently with major national or international events, almost like people need a silly gossip chaser for all of the horrific fascism. I think that’s why the Olivia Wilde-Jason Sudeikis split has picked up steam, btw. But people just forgot that Kim Kardashian is doing her Hamlet act over whether to file for divorce from Kanye. Thankfully, Kim ran to People Magazine to remind everyone!
It’s a new year, but Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are still navigating a significant rough patch in their marriage. Multiple sources confirm that Kardashian, 40, has been struggling in her decision of whether or not to end her nearly seven-year union to West, on the heels of an exceedingly difficult year.
“Kim and Kanye’s marriage is beyond repair,” says a family source. “Kim is over Kanye’s chaos, and at this point she just wants to focus on the kids and her own life.”
The high-profile couple shares four children: daughters North, 7, and Chicago, who turns 3 on Friday, and sons Saint, 5, and Psalm, who turns 2 in May. Despite social media posts showing seemingly happy family vacations to Wyoming and Colorado last year, sources say behind the scenes, Kardashian grew increasingly concerned about West’s behavior — including his unlikely Presidential run and controversial and public statements about abortion, Kris Jenner and his marriage to Kardashian.
“If I had to say the final straw, I believe it was a combination of the Presidential run and his Twitter rants,” says an insider. “It created havoc at home. And though Kim is well aware of his issues [West opened up about his bipolar disorder in 2018], and tried to help him, she realized it was futile.”
Ultimately, “they are not on the same page,” says the source of Kardashian and West, 43. “Kim knows what she wants to do with her life and Kanye is constantly all over the place.” Continues the source: “She isn’t in a rush to file for divorce. But it is on her mind.”
I don’t think Kim’s support was necessarily “futile.” Time and time again over the past four years, Kim is the one who has shouldered the responsibility of getting Kanye help, or taking him away when he’s being batsh-t in public, or convincing him to stop tweeting, etc. But I can understand – and I have understood, this whole time – how it probably feels futile to her, or it feels like Groundhog Day, with Kanye having these increasingly awful manic episodes every five months or so. She’s worn out from dealing with it. I would have said sayonara years ago.
