Kim Kardashian, 40, filed for divorce from Kanye West, 43, on Feb. 19 after reaching her “final straw.” Kim and Kanye both had met with lawyers. Kim felt she tried everything to make the marriage work and Kanye was refusing to get the help she requested which was the final straw, referencing the rapper’s struggles with bipolar disorder.
She and Kris Jenner too even tried to get him to go to counseling and offered support as best she could and he kept refusing. Kim Kardshian filed the papers through celebrity divorce attorney Laura Wasser, according to reports.
The KKW Beauty founder publicly spoke out about Kanye’s mental health in July 2020 after he posted a series of controversial tweets, including one where he alleged Kim and Kris Jenner tried to bring 2 doctors to 51/50 him.
Reports began swirling of a split shortly after, and the reality star has had her ducks in a row for a while. They both knew this was coming. Nobody was blindsided. For her, it’s always been about working through the financials more than the kids, our source explained, referencing their four children North, 7, Saint, 5, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 1.
She’s just been trying to gauge how they can work together on this to make it a seamless transition and to make sure he’s going to mentally be in that space in the decisions to make together over the kids. Kim Kardashian knows this is the best decision for the family.
She really loves him and wants the best for him and doesn’t want to put the entire family through all of their issues and drama. She’s trying to omit any drama and keep the kids out of it and doesn’t want them intertwined in any drama or issues as they figure the financials out.
