According to a British newspaper, 40-year-old socialite followed Kris Jenner’s advice and has been consulting with a divorce attorney for months
Kim Kardashian decided to divorce Kanye West after her mother, Kris Jenner, said: “It’s over.”
A source close to the famous couple informed The Sun that Kim and Kanye have been living apart since at least the last month of May, and said that Kris asked his daughter to “put herself first.” “Kim has been meeting with her divorce attorney in secret for months. And, during the holidays, Kris told her that the situation couldn’t go on any longer, so Kim officially moved to end things,” he said…
The contact added: “Kris thinks Kanye is out of control and is ‘bad for the family brand’. She can’t bear to see how unhappy Kim is. ”
Another British newspaper source also spoke of the influence Kris Jenner had on the 40-year-old socialite’s decision: “Kim did not make that decision alone. Kris has been stirring his daughter’s heart to persuade her to do the right thing, which is to kick Kanye. He’s no longer useful and it’s time to be cut. ”
In May 2020, The Sun had reported that Kim and Kanye were living in “separate corners” of their mansion. “Kim is going crazy since she is used to being on the move. It is also a long time alone with the kids for her,” said a vehicle contact. “She is frustrated with Kanye and thinks he is not dealing with family responsibilities. They have been on opposite sides of the house to keep things civil.”
Divorce rumors gained strength after a rally that Kanye held after announcing his candidacy for the United States presidency: at the event, he declared that he had prevented Kim from aborting their first daughter. According to the New York Post, the rapper’s political candidacy was “the last straw” for the socialite.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were married in 2014 and have four children: North, seven; Chicago, two; Saint, out of five; and Psalm, one-year-old.
