- Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's divorce was allegedly triggered by the rapper's failed bid for president
- Sources confirmed to Page Six that West's controversial actions and comments during his campaign signalled the end of the marriage
- Neither celeb has confirmed the divorce news but sources say they are amicably splitting and know it's what they both want
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's divorce proceedings were reportedly triggered by the rapper's failed run for president.
Sources have come forward alleging that Kanye's highly-controversial and much-discussed campaign became the final straw for Kim and made her realise that the marriage was beyond saving.
Many are of the opinion that Kardashian was also not a fan of the remarks that the rapper made about Harriet Tubman, Kris Jenner and mental health. Kanye very publicly criticised the Kardashian-Jenner family and refused psychiatric treatment for his bipolar disorder.
A source confirmed to Page Six that the two celebs had been amicably continuing with divorce proceedings for some time before rumours began making headlines.
The source was also reported as saying that there was no bad blood between Kim and Kanye and they have both accepted the situation:
“There isn’t a war happening. They’ve been working through a lot for a while now, for a few months.”
A second source re-iterated the sentiment that Kim's final straw was Kanye's sham of a presidential campaign and that it was the moment that she felt a separation would be better for their four kids.
The same source then added that Kanye is "over" the Kardashian family too.
Neither West nor Kardashian has come out and confirmed the divorce but fans have come to accept it to be as-good-as true.
YEN.com.gh reported on sources confirming the rumours of divorce being imminent between Kim and Kanye when the news first made headlines.
After six years of marriage, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are reportedly calling it quits. The celebrity couple has had rumours swirling that there was trouble in paradise for some time, but multiple sources have confirmed that they are done.
Kim and Kanye reportedly spent time apart during the holiday season as they sorted through the details of their separation and divorce.
Multiple sources told Page Six that the "divorce is imminent" and that Kim has procured the services of famous celebrity divorce attorney Laura Wessner.
Another source told E!News that Kim is settled with the idea of a split and is solely concerned with the most desirable outcome for her four children:
"Kim is only focused on what's best for the kids. It's a tough decision for her and she's figuring it out."
Kim and Kanye got married back in 2014 and have four children together: North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm.
