It’s Official: Kim Kardashian And Kanye West Are Divorcing

Here's everything we know so far...

After months of speculation, the news has been confirmed that Kim and Kanye are getting divorced. The era of one of the biggest celeb couples ever, Kimye, is over.

Kim Kardashian officially filed for divorce on Friday the 19th of February after six years of marriage.

This comes as no surprise really as rumours have been speculating since early last year that their relationship was on the rocks. An insider, speaking with E!News shared; “It’s gotten to the point where they haven’t spent time together as a married couple in months.”

This is something many fans have noticed as the couple are rarely spotted on each other’s Instagram accounts or even snapped together in public.

“They’ve seen each other for the sake of the kids but have been living separately. Kim knows the marriage is over. She’s known for a while,” the insider continued.

The pair married in May 2014 which was arguably one of the biggest celeb weddings ever, but had been publicly dating since April 2012.

They share four children together, Psalm who is a year and a half old, Chicago, 3, Saint, 5 and their eldest, North is 7.

It seems that Kim held off on her decision for this long for the sake of her kids as the source shared; “She wants to make sure she’s making the right decision for the kids.”

Apparently the 40-year-old is looking for joint legal and physical custody of their children which should hopefully lead to an amicable divorce.

The reason for their split is cited as “irreconcilable differences” as the couple have not been getting along for some time. Over the past year it has seemed as though Kanye’s bi-polar disorder had worsened, after a number of erratic outbursts last year.

Kim supported her husband through this, despite some of the hurtful things he said about her and her family, which he later apologised for. She released a public statement at the time too which reminded fans that her husband is battling a mental illness.

However, it seems it has all got too much for the star as now their relationship has officially come to an end.
