Rumors have been swirling that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were ready for divorce, and earlier this month it was all but confirmed as the truth. Fans have been waiting for the announcement from Kim herself, but it looks like we might be learning more!
Apparently, Kim has an exit plan in place for the split. We know she was worried about who would get possession of the house, but it looks like she’s got it all figured out.
Now, the two are officially over after a six year marriage.
At the beginning of January, Page Six reported that Kim Kardashian is dropping the West from her name. Multiple sources told the outlet that divorce is unavoidable for the couple at this point, and Kim hired celeb divorce attorney, Laura Wasser, to help with the case.
“They are keeping it low-key but they are done,” a source told the outlet. “Kim has hired Laura Wasser and they are in settlement talks.”
The couple spent the holidays in separate states, Kim in California and Kanye in Wyoming. It was also reported that Kim is no longer wearing her wedding ring.
“Kim got Kanye to go up there [Wyoming] so they could live separate lives and quietly get things sorted out to separate and divorce. She’s done,” the source revealed to Page Six.
Although the couple has tried to work things out, Kim is no longer able to take care of Kanye.
“Now this divorce is happening because Kim has grown up a lot,” the source continued. “She is serious about taking the bar exam and becoming a lawyer, she is serious about her prison reform campaign. Meanwhile Kanye is talking about running for president and saying other crazy sh*t, and she’s just had enough of it.”
Another source revealed that Kanye is equally fed up with the Kardashian lifestyle. They claimed he is “completely over the entire family…he wants nothing to do with them.”
Kanye has tweeted about divorcing Kim and his distaste for her family, but more recently, he barely showed up to Kim’s birthday celebration.
“He showed up late and left early, he wouldn’t appear in any of their Instagram shots. All he did was bring over the hologram of her father Robert Kardashian, then got out of there as fast as he could,” a source claimed at the time.
It appears the biggest issue in the divorce settlement is their Calabasas home (which doesn’t even have a jacuzzi!).
“Kim is trying to get Kanye to turn over the Calabasas house to her, because that’s where the kids are based and growing up. That is their home,” a source told Page Six. “She owns all the land and adjoining lots around the house but Kanye owns the actual house. They’ve both put a lot of money into renovating it.”
Apparently, this isn’t the first time the couple has had settlement talks, but now they appear to be more serious.
“Kim has had all of her and Kanye’s financials and properties ready to be split, it’s a very fair deal for everyone,” a source told Us Weekly. “Kim has all of her assets and financials ready for when she decides to file officially. Friends thought she was going to file in September, but she’s holding out. That does not mean that everything behind the scenes is already done.”
According to the source, Kanye’s comments about wanted to have an abortion when he found out Kim was pregnant with North was the final straw.
