Kim Kardashian, the star of the hit series Keeping up with the Kardashians, which follows the antics of the famous media personality and her whole family and friend group, has recently filed for a divorce from her husband, the highly successful rapper, Kanye West. Although the two have been spending their lives together with their family of 4 children for a while now, it seems like it’s all going to end soon, as they’ve reached a point where there’s no saving it anymore. How did it get to this point, and how will it affect both of them and their children?

  Kim and Kanye, informally dubbed Kimye by their most loyal fans, tied the knot in 2014, during a trip to Florence, Italy. Before the ceremony though, they welcomed their first daughter, North West – yes that is indeed what they decided to name her- into the world in 2013, which may be what led to them getting subsequently married. Somewhere down the line, there was another child, and another, and another, until their family reached the number 6. After Saint, their second child, Kim decided to hire surrogates for her third and fourth children, Chicago and Psalm respectively, as she suffered from a condition called Placenta Accreta which would put her at risk in case of another pregnancy. 


Despite everything that has been going on, Kim is moving ahead confidently as far as the reports are saying. A source for People alleges that the divorce was considered by both parties to be the right way forward, and that their main concern regards the privacy of their children. Additionally, “She [Kim] is very happy and convinced that she made the right decision.”

KUWTK finale

  You can take the words that have come out of her own mouth as proof of this; let’s see what she has said on the finale of Keeping up with the Kardashians. In a confrontation with her mother, she revealed that she is receiving the help of a therapist – and so should you if you are going through tough times like this- and also talked about what happiness means to her and how her life is going in her eyes.

   “I know obviously complete bliss is like, not a full reality, but if I can have it more of the majority of the time, that’s all I want to do, wherever that takes me” she explained. “I just want my pure happiness, so that’s what I’m working on figuring out how to get there. I just feel like I’ve worked so hard in life to achieve everything that I’ve wanted to, and I’ve lived up to my expectations and achieved 10 times more than I even thought was humanly possible.” She continued with, “But I don’t have a life to share that with” in reference to how her husband had been absent from her life for long periods of time.


  Yeezy was often flying away from their home to spend time at his Wyoming ranch, which was one of the main reasons they couldn’t work anymore.

  She continued with, “I just am on this ride with him, and I was okay with that and then after turning 40 this year, I realized like, ‘No, I don’t want a husband that lives in a completely different state to me.’ I thought, ‘Oh my God, that’s when we’re getting along the best,’ but then that is sad to me, and that’s not what I want.” If you are at your best when the two of you are separated from each other, then it’s a sign as clear as day that something needs to be done about it because your relationships ain’t working out well for you. And that’s why she filed for divorce in February.

What about Kanye?

   You may be wondering how Kanye West is feeling about all of this, and the answer is “we don’t know exactly”. The “Runaway” rapper has been quiet for the most part as these events were unfolding, opting for the route of silence until their legal matters are settled. It seems like he has distanced himself from his former life with Kim, as he was even absent from the finale of her own show which spanned 20 seasons. Understandably, he may need some time away to help him deal with all that’s going on, but reports say he has been spotted in France, celebrating his birthday with model Irina Shayk. Keep in mind that nothing is set in stone when it comes to reports, but nonetheless, how would you feel if your spouse was dating another person a couple months after filing for divorce?
