Kim Kardashian is reportedly “still trying” to save her marriage to Kanye West, amid reports they’re set to split.
After Page Six reported that the 40-year-old is preparing to divorce her husband of six years, sources have told PEOPLE magazine that their marriage isn’t over just yet.
An insider said: “Kim and Kanye are in counseling and exploring their options. They have been working on their marriage for a long time, but no decision has been made.”
A second source explained: “They are still trying to see if the marriage can be saved.”
“Kris Jenner and Kim’s sisters are being as supportive as possible.”
“They’ve seen Kim struggle over the last year and ultimately just want both her and Kanye to be happy, however that may look.”
Another source added: “He knows that she’s done. She has had enough, and she told him that she wants some space to figure out her future.”
“He’s okay. He’s sad, but okay. He knows the inevitable will happen, and he knows that it’s coming soon.”
Amid rumours Kim and Kanye are set to divorce, Us Weekly has reported that the couple got into a “big fight” in early December.
An insider claimed: “They had a big fight in early December. Kanye blew up at Kim and she was really upset. Things between them don’t seem to have healed since that.”
A separate source claimed it was “only a matter of time” until Kim decided to end their marriage.
The insider said: “She didn’t just walk away. The comments about North and the abortion were the final confirmation. She will protect the children first, always.”
The news comes after multiple sources told Page Six that Kim has allegedly hired divorce attorney Laura Wasser, who previously represented the star in her divorce from Kris Humphries.
An insider told the publication: “They are keeping it low-key but they are done. Kim has hired Laura Wasser and they are in settlement talks.”
The publication has also reported that Kanye spent the Christmas season at his ranch in Wyoming, while his family celebrated without him.
“Kim got Kanye to go up there [Wyoming] so they could live separate lives and quietly get things sorted out to separate and divorce. She’s done,” the insider claimed.
Another insider said of the couple’s alleged settlement talks: “Kim is trying to get Kanye to turn over the Calabasas house to her, because that’s where the kids are based and growing up. That is their home.”
“She owns all the land and adjoining lots around the house but Kanye owns the actual house. They’ve both put a lot of money into renovating it.
“This isn’t the first time they’ve been talking about a split, but this time it is way, way more serious,” they added.
Fans feared the couple were headed for a divorce back in July, when Kanye spoke about almost aborting their daughter North during a presidential campaign rally in South Carolina.
After the rally, Kanye posted a number of shocking statements on Twitter, and he even accused Kim of trying to get him “locked up”.
The rapper also claimed he’s been “trying to get divorced” from Kim ever since she met Meek Mill back in 2018 to discuss prison reform, and he also appeared to slam his mother-in-law Kris Jenner.
Kanye later deleted the tweets, and a few hours later Kim released a statement addressing her husband’s behaviour.
In the statement, the reality star opened up about her husband’s mental health – explaining how “incredibly complicated and painful” it can be to struggle with bipolar disorder.
The mother-of-four also asked the public to show their family “compassion” during such a difficult time.
Days later, the 43-year-old posted a public apology to Kim on Twitter.
The couple then put on a united front by taking their kids on a “make or break” trip to the Dominican Republic.
Kim and Kanye tied the knot back in 2014, and the couple share four kids – North, 7, Saint, 5, Chicago, 2, and Psalm, 1.
