Kanye West’s wife, Kim Kardashian, has applied for divorce. The pair had been married for six years before they divorced, citing irreconcilable differences, according to E! News. “It’s gotten to the point where they haven’t spent time together as a married couple in months,” a source close to E! News said. They’ve seen each other for the sake of the children, but they’ve lived apart. Kim is well aware that her marriage is over. She’s been around for a long time.” The couple has yet to make an official comment on the matter. Earlier stories in the US media suggested that they were living apart and finding therapy for relationship problems. Kim Kardashian is also said to be seeking shared custody of their four children. Kim’s publicist acknowledged the divorce filing but declined to elaborate.
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian began dating in 2012 and married in a lavish ceremony in Italy in 2014. However, rumours of their marital problems have been circulating for a long time, owing to Kanye West’s mental health concerns and his divisive foray into US politics. Kanye West had previously apologised to his wife and reality-TV star/model Kim Kardashian for remarks he had made about the couple considering aborting their eldest daughter North, wanting to divorce Kim, and his wife attempting to lock him up.
“I would like to apologise to my wife Kim for going public with something that was a private matter,” Kanye West posted on his official Twitter account. I did not protect her the way she has protected me from Kim, and I apologise if I have caused you any harm. Please accept my apologies. Thank you for being there for me at all times.”
