Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's marriage first made headlines about really being in trouble back in July 2020. But in reality, People reports now, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians stars' romantic relationship soured many months before behind the scenes. A TV industry source told the outlet today that "the love story between Kim and Kanye has been over for a long time, more than a year. They adored each other but have too many differences."
"Kim has become more independent and has lost patience with his antics, rants, the presidential campaign and tweets," the source continued, adding that "Kim is capable of moving her life forward without him. She is busy studying [to be a lawyer], running her business, promoting it, and raising their children. That is what she wants to do."
A separate source told People that Kardashian wants to maintain a good relationship with West for the sake of their four children North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm. "She will do everything she can for the kids to have a great relationship with Kanye," that source said. "She just doesn't want to be married to him."
People reported earlier this week that despite Kardashian and West's romantic relationship being over, Kardashian wasn't ready to file for divorce just yet.
"Kim knows what she wants to do with her life and Kanye is constantly all over the place," one source told the outlet. "She isn't in a rush to file for divorce. But it is on her mind."
Entertainment Tonight echoed that messaging in its own report on how Kardashian is doing, which ran Monday. "Kim is focusing on the new year and a lot of amazing things that are coming her way," the outlet's source said. "Kim has tried everything she can to make things work with Kanye but it’s not working. Kim has held on to the relationship in hopes of a change and for the sake of the kids, but all signs are pointing to divorce."
