A shocking Kimye report came out on Tuesday. According to an Us Weekly source, Kim Kardashian wants to divorce Kanye West, a stunning claim that comes in the wake of the rapper’s outpatient treatment. “Kim wants a divorce,” the insider, allegedly a friend of Kardashian, told the magazine. “It will take some time before she can do anything, but she doesn’t want to stay married.” The source also added that Kardashian is allegedly “building a case” so she can get full custody of the couple’s two children, North, 3, and Saint, 1. Bustle has reached out to Kardashian’s rep for comment, but did not receive a response at the time of publication. Update: While Kardashian and West haven’t spoken out themselves, a new report claims the rumors are false. A source who spoke with Entertainment Tonight said, “Not only is the rumor that they are splitting not true, but so is the report of them living apart.”
Earlier: Since being hospitalized for exhaustion on Nov. 21, West allegedly has since been receiving outpatient care since his release from the hospital, both Us and People report. He is reportedly not living with his wife and children at this time, but rather an L.A. rental home, according to Us.
“Kanye isn’t at home with Kim and the kids,” a source told People. “He is instead receiving outpatient care elsewhere with a medical team. Kim still seems concerned but is supportive. They don’t know for how long Kanye will need outpatient care.” The Us source claimed that Kardashian “is being very protective and doesn’t want Kanye around the kids right now,” though the magazine notes that he attended Saint’s birthday party just days after his release from the hospital.
Prior to Us Weekly‘s divorce report, an insider told People that there aren’t serious issues in their marriage.
“That is not accurate,” the insider said at the time. “There are frustrations and problems, like any relationship, but they love each other deeply.”
The Us source claimed that Kardashian will not be making any decisions until the rapper is better. For now, the insider said, “She’s being a supportive wife. She cares about Kanye and feels relieved he’s getting the help he needs, but she’s felt trapped for a while.”
