Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are officially getting a divorce. This comes after a Page Six interview in which Kim said “I’m done” and confirmed that a divorce “is imminent”.

Kim has hired renowned divorce attorney Laura Wasser to represent her in the case. West reportedly spent the holidays separate from Kardashian and her family, at his lavish Wyoming ranch, though he did appear at her infamous private island 40th birthday party in October.

For the last half of 2020, TMZ has been reporting that Kanye and Kim’s marriage was in “deep trouble” and that they have been unhappy for some time. According to TMZ, Kim has had Wasser on retainer for a long time, even though she only decided to file for divorce now.

New reports suggest that their marriage has reached breaking point after Kanye’s failed run at winning the US presidential election last year. After West sent a series of manic tweets in September, a source claimed, “It’s the same thing over and over and over again. He’s on very thin ice with her right now, and she’s truly trying to decide what to do to protect the kids, but also her own sanity.”

Divorce rumours first surfaced in 2016 after Kanye was admitted to hospital for exhaustion. His doctor said he suffered from “temporary psychosis due to sleep deprivation and dehydration.” It turned out that if there were issues indeed, the couple was able to overcome this.

Kim and Kanye married in 2014 and have been one of the most famous couples in the world. However, their relationship has been plagued with issues. Kanye has also been battling several mental health problems, which he has been vocal about in several interviews. Kim has always been an advocate for family unity, declining to give negative comments on rumours of struggles between her and her husband.
