It is reported that Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West are ending their marriage

On Jan. 5, news broke that Kardashian and West, who had been together shortly after her divorce from Kris Humphries in 2011, are ending their marriage. The two had been friends for several years before romantic matters turned out between them, and within a year or so of dating, they learned that Kardashian was pregnant with their first child.

The couple welcomed the Northwest in 2013, and tied the knot at a grand concert in Italy the following year. Since then, they have welcomed three more children – two from a surrogate – and have spoken to having as many as seven children.

However, the couple’s marriage has been on the rocks for some time. Sources close to the founder of Skims reported Page six that the marriage has been over for several months. “It’s done,” one source told the media group, adding that a “divorce is imminent” between the two. Kardashian West reportedly considered filing for divorce last year but postponed it because West was going through some mental health problems.

Kardashian’s separation from the West would be her third divorce

Neither Kardashian nor West has mentioned the rumors, although West claimed several months ago that he was leaving his wife and that Kardashian’s family tried to force him to seek psychiatric help. Kardashian spoke earlier this year after people worried about her husband’s mental health, although there was no sign that she was planning to leave at the time.

Despite the rumors, it is unclear whether the two are going through a divorce. However, West did not spend the holidays with Kardashian and her family, which was strange for fans. If the divorce happened, it would be Kardashian’s third. She was previously married to Damon Thomas, with whom she fled in 2000 at the age of 19. The couple separated about three years later.

Kardashian dated several others over the years, and she married former NBA star Kris Humphries back in 2011. The marriage lasted only 72 days before Kardashian West filed for divorce. And before their divorce was finalized, she began going back to the West.

Only two other members of the Kardashian family have been through divorce

The Kardashian family has seen the division of relationships through the years, but only a few have been through divorce. Kris Jenner and Robert Kardashian divorced in the early 1990s, and soon after, she married Caitlyn Jenner. Kris filed for divorce from Caitlyn in 2014, and it was terminated in 2015.

Khloé Kardashian has also been through a divorce; she and her ex-husband Lamar Odom were married after just several weeks of dating, and Odom’s enslaved struggle led Khloé to file for divorce. Kim has also been through many divorces, but Kourtney, Rob, Kendall, and Kylie are still unmarried.
