Recent months has proven to be rocky for the couple, Kim was tied up and robbed in Paris while Kanye suffered a mental breakdown after a rant at a show.
A source which has only been identified as “a friend” of the Kardashian family has said Kim is the one pushing for the divorce.
The source confirmed she is building a case against the Chicago Rapper and fully intended to get full custody of their daughter, North West, and son, Saint West which celebrated his first birthday on Monday Dec 5.
According to US Weekly, a friend to the Kardashians claimed:
“It will take some time before she can do anything. She doesn’t want to stay married.”
The insider added that Kim won’t make any decisions until Kanye is fully recovered, stating:
“She’s being a supportive wife. She cares about Kanye and feels relieved he’s getting the help he needs but she’s felt trapped for a while.”
It has been widely speculated that the couple may be experiencing marital issues after it was claimed that the rapper is living apart from his wife and their two kids – North, three, and Saint, 12 months – as he receives outpatient care following his 10 day stay in UCLA Medical Center.
A source told People magazine:
“Kim is being very protective and doesn’t want Kanye around the kids right now.
