“Kim is doing well, she’s taking things day by day,” the insider says. “Everything has been going as smoothly as possible with her and Kanye so far.”
Rumors of a split from West had been looming for months. In July 2020, a source revealed to Us that Kim had met with a divorce lawyer following West’s explosive presidential campaign rants. The pair first hit a rough patch years earlier.
“The turning point in Kim and Kanye’s marriage was when he said that slavery was a choice,” the insider said, referring to the “Bound 2” rapper’s controversial 2018 interview with TMZ. “They went through a really rough patch in the aftermath of that. Kim was completely mortified by Kanye’s ridiculous and outrageous comments. It took a lot for them to move past it.”
