America’s favourite couple Kim Kardashian-West and Kanye West are getting divorced, according to reports from TMZ.
The couple who began dating in 2012, and got married in an elegant ceremony in Italy in 2014, have four children: North (born in 2013), Saint (born in 2015), Chicago (born in 2018), and Psalm (born in 2019).
According to TMZ, multiple sources have confirmed that a “divorce is imminent,” and the outlet reports that Kardashian has hired Laura Wasser, the powerful divorce attorney who has previously represented Angelina Jolie, Heidi Klum, and Kardashian herself, during her 2011 divorce from Kris Humphries.
Kanye West reportedly spent the holidays separate from Kim and her family, at his lavish Wyoming ranch.
According to TMZ, Kardashian has had Wasser on retainer for “for various reasons,” but has not given the green light to file for divorce.
Recent reports have suggested their relationship was struggling, particularly during West’s ill-fated presidential campaign last year.
Around the period of the campaign, Kanye west called out his wife, Kim Kardashian over meeting with Meek Mill at the Waldorf hotel.
During that period, Kanye revealed a string of their personal details in his characteristically rants, including disclosing how he encouraged Kim not to abort their first child.
It remains to be seen if there is any truth to these claims however, as the couple hasn’t publicly announced their imminent split.
