Kim Kardashian is mourning the loss of her marriage to Kanye West, but ready for the next chapter. After almost seven years of marriage and months of divorce rumors, the 40-year-old reality royal officially filed for divorce from the 43-year-old music maker on Friday, February 19. To no one’s shock, the news instantly began to trend. A source told PEOPLE, that Kim immediately surrounded herself with her family and loved ones.
“Kim is with her family today,” the publication reports. “She is doing okay. She is sad, but ready to move on.” Fortunately, it seems she will be able to fairly quickly. The pair have already agreed on joint legal and physical custody, their prenup isn’t being questioned by either party, and all negotiations are ticking forward. The source confirmed that they are nearing a settlement.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians Queen and “Runaway” rapper tied the knot in 2014 after a two year courtship. They share four children together: North West, 7, Saint West, 5, Chicago West, 2,and Psalm West, 20 months.
According to the E! News, who share a close relationship with the headline-making family, Kim was hesitant to proceed with the divorce for her children’s sake. “She wants to make sure she’s making the right decision for the kids,” the source explained.
“It’s not about the marriage anymore; she’ll always care for Kanye, but it’s over between them,” the source added. “Kim is only focused on what’s best for the kids. It’s a tough decision for her, and she’s figuring it out.”
It hasn’t been an easy road for the pair, especially as of late. Fortunately, they have more than enough resources to live separately. Reportedly, Kanye accepted a request from Kim to live at their $14 million Wyoming ranch while things were being sorted out.
You may recall in July of 2020 that West revealed private information about the pair’s relationship. “I been trying to get divorced since Kim met with Meek at the Warldolf [sic] for ‘prison reform,” he wrote. He also called the family’s matriarch Kris Jenner “Kris Jong-Un” and tweeting: “everyone knows the movie get out is about me.”
Neither has released an official statement at this time.
