Kim Kardashian is planning to divorce her husband Kanye West as soon as he recovers from his mental breakdown that left him at UCLA Medical Center for 10 days.
According to a new report, the 36-year-old reality star has not been happy in her marriage for a long time. UsWeekly claimed on Wednesday Kim will file for divorce ‘when the time is right’.
Us Weekly is also alleging that Kim is currently trying to ‘build a case for full custody of the kids North and Saint.’ The gossip site also claims that Kanye West is not living with Kim inside their Bel-Air mansion. They cite multiple sources that tell them the ‘Stronger’ rapper has been residing in an LA-area rental as an outpatient.
UsWeekly claims Kim definitely ‘wants a divorce’ and she knows for sure she ‘doesn’t want to stay married to him.’ But the timing is terrible. So she has been advised to ‘take some time before she does anything.’ ‘She cares about Kanye and feels relieved he is getting the help he needs,’ a source said. ‘But she’s felt trapped for a while.’
Immediately after Kanye’s hospitalization, sources claimed she asked for a break before flying to New York City for her first public appearance since her October robbery in Paris. That request reportedly sent him into deep depression. ‘It’s just been hell for them,’ a source told Us Weekly last month. ‘It has become unbearable. They’ve been fighting a lot.’
A source at E! News denied Kim and Kanye are heading for divorce. The source says Kim and Kanye were living together and that ‘she wants to get Kanye back on his feet.’ ‘She is not leaving him. She loves him.’ the insider says. However, E! is the network that produces Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
According to Kanye’s physician Michael Farzam, the rapper’s breakdown was a ‘temporary psychosis.’ TMZ has claimed that he either went off his meds for a longstanding psychological ailment or changed the dose of his meds. For now Kim wants to be the ‘supportive wife’ and make sure he is getting the care he needs, the new issue of UsWeekly reports. ‘She is very protective,’ it was claimed by the site. As far as their two children, North, aged three, and Saint, aged one, Kim does not want them around Kanye at this time.
Kim reportedly banned Kanye from attending Saint’s low-key first birthday party last week. The gathering was small, but it was filled with balloons and there was a big cake. It has been a challenging time for the family ever since Kim was robbed at gunpoint inside her Paris apartment on October 3. She was left bound and gagged with $11 million dollars worth of jewelry stolen from her. Her best friend Jonathan Cheban told DailyMail she was ‘not doing so good,’ which was later said by her sisters Khloe and Kourtney.
UsWeekly has reported that Kim’s recovery was hard for Kanye to accept as he had grown accustomed to relying on her for emotional support. She was seen at his LA concert after the robbery, but was often not by his side during his Life Of Pablo tour, which he has since canceled. Kim has not made a public appearance or made any Instagram posts since her robbery. Her friends and family have been posting to her site kimkardashianwest.com.
Kim’s love life has been a rocky one. She was wed to Damon Thomas from 2000 until 2004 before entering a high-profile relationships with NFL player Reggie Bush and singer Ray J. After their split she wed NBA player Kris Humphries in 2011 after a short engagement. Their union lasted only 72 days. The two were seen fighting over fame and work on her show Keeping Up With The Kardashians. They finalized their divorce in 2013. Kim and Kanye wed at the Forte di Belvedere in Florence, Italy, in May 2014.
