It’s been a crazy week in the marriage between Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.
Last week, West made some outlandish comments about Kardashian. Most shocking of all was when he insinuated she cheated on him with rapper Meek Mill. West also claimed that he had been trying to divorce Kardashian for two years.
West did end up apologizing for his comments, sharing on Twitter that “I would like to apologize to my wife Kim for going public with something that was a private matter. I did not cover her like she has covered me. To Kim, I want to say I know I hurt you. Please forgive me. Thank you for always being there for me.”
For her part, Kardashian also broke her silence on the ordeal, discussing her husband’s mental health struggles with bipolar disorder, and asking for empathy.
Specifically, she stated last week on her social media that “As many of you know, Kanye has bi-polar disorder. Anyone who has this or has a loved one in their life who does, knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand. I’ve never spoken publicly about how this has affected us at home because I am very protective of our children and Kanye’s right to privacy when it comes to his health. But today, I feel like I should comment on it because of the stigma and misconceptions about mental health.”
Kardashian added at the time that “I understand Kanye is subject to criticism because he is a public figure and his actions at times can cause strong opinions and emotions. “He is a brilliant but complicated person who on top of the pressures of being an artist and a black man, who experienced the painful loss of his mother, and has to deal with the pressure and isolation that is heightened by his bi-polar disorder. Those who are close with Kanye know his heart and understand his words some times do not align with his intentions.
A Tense Reunion
Yesterday it was revealed that Kardashian had finally flown out to Cody, Wyoming, where West has been staying on his ranch. She was spotted in photos that were shared online crying, so it was assumed that the situation between the pair remains understandably tense.
Then, as we reported this morning, it was revealed that Kardashian and West have not been living together for almost a year.
Specifically, a source had spilled to US Magazine that “Kanye has been in Wyoming for the last year. Kim goes about once every five weeks and brings the kids.”
US’s insider went on to note that “When together things are fine between them but they haven’t been spending time together because he moved his life completely to Wyoming and that’s not where their life is, their family is, their kids are in school or the larger family is.”
Since his outburst began last week, there has been much speculation regarding if the pair are going to stay together or not. There has also been the question of how much more Kardashian can take before she files for divorce.
‘The Marriage Is Over’
A new report from People this mooring had more to add to the story. An insider revealed to People that “as soon as Kim got to the ranch, she and Kanye came out together in his car.”
Their source detailed more about why she was so upset (aside from the obvious), stating that “Kim is hysterically crying. Kim hasn’t seen Kanye for weeks.”
Explaining that it’s a “bad situation,” People’s insider went on to share that “She is very emotional about everything, and also exhausted. She feels very hurt by Kanye. She has tried to reach him multiple times and he just ignores her. She decided to fly to Cody to speak to him in person. She doesn’t want to be ignored anymore.”
While it’s clear they must both care for each other to some extent, another source dished to People that even before West’s outbursts last week divorce has been on the table.
With the latest outbursts, this source explained that the marriage is basically done, stating explicitly that “There has been enough communication, both in the past few days and in the weeks prior, to establish that both sides feel the marriage is over.”
They added that the conversation regarding divorce has been “a long time coming.”
In a similar vein, a source spoke to US Magazine stating that “Kim is not leaving the relationship because of this current situation, but before this situation, over the last three months or so, they had been talking about divorce.”
Their source went on to explain that “Kim has wanted to make this marriage work and so has Kanye. They both still love each other and there is still some interest in making this marriage work but in recent months it has looked less likely.”
However, they added that divorce talks are taking a temporary pause as “There is no conversation around divorce until he’s able to be in a better mental space.”
“Really, there’s little to no contact between Kim and Kanye right now,” they added.
Wait And See
