According to Elle, These are likely the final days of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s marriage, sources have made clear to multiple outlets over the last week, while noting that Kardashian still hasn’t made a final decision about their relationship. But Kardashian is a little more decisive about what her future will look like, People reports today, and it won’t involve being West’s wife.
The outlet reports that while Kardashian isn’t about to file divorce papers today, she knows this is the end and has known for a while. “Kim and Kanye’s marriage is beyond repair,” a “family source” told the outlet. “Kim is over Kanye’s chaos, and at this point she just wants to focus on the kids and her own life.”
One source said there wasn’t one final straw, but the breaking point came in the summer, during West’s failed presidential run. “If I had to say the final straw, I believe it was a combination of the presidential run and his Twitter rants,” the source said. “It created havoc at home. And though Kim is well aware of his issues [West has bipolar disorder], and tried to help him, she realized it was futile.”
The source added that their priorities just don’t align. “Kim knows what she wants to do with her life and Kanye is constantly all over the place,” the source said. “She isn’t in a rush to file for divorce. But it is on her mind.”
People reported in September that when Kardashian and West went on an emergency trip in August to save their marriage, West had promised to take his medications. Not even a month later, he broke that vow—a major blow to their reconciliation efforts: “He’s off his meds,” People’s source said at the time. “He promised he’d stay on them. The last time, part of his negotiation with Kim was that he’d get back on his medication and he would work very hard to control his impulses. He made a lot of promises. And now those promises are broken, less than a month later.”
