Kanye West and Kim Kardashian appear to be headed for a divorce and according to a new report he’s not handling the split well.
Kanye West is reportedly “struggling” as divorce rumours continue to swirl around him and wife Kim Kardashian. According to a new report in the latest issue of PEOPLE Magazine the rapper is “very sad” that the marriage is coming to an end.
“Kanye is not doing well,” a source told the news outlet. “He is anxious and very sad. He knows that the marriage is over, and there’s nothing that can be done right now. He also knows what he is losing in Kim.”

Kim and Kanye share four kids: daughters North, 7, and Chicago, 3, and sons Saint, 5, and Psalm, 1. “Kim has made it clear that Kanye can talk to his children anytime he wants,” the source shared with PEOPLE.
“She has never threatened to keep him from the kids. She only requires that he is not going to damage them. Kanye can FaceTime the kids anytime he wants. He hasn’t been great about that, but everyone is encouraging him to do it. Kim doesn’t want to hurt him,” the source continued. “She just knows she can’t be married to him anymore. He is very aware that she has been a good wife. He still loves her very much. But he understands.”
Kanye is currently living in Wyoming and hasn’t fought to save the marriage. “He knows it’s inevitable and now, it’s just a matter of when it’s all happening,” a source close to Kanye previously revealed. “He hasn’t really fought for her and hasn’t been around the kids or the Kardashian family. It’s not an ideal situation for anyone and it’s just sad for the entire family.” So far Kim and Kanye have remained silent on the reports that they are planning to divorce.
Kanye West: Why he ‘hasn’t fought’ to make things work with Kim Kardashian?
Kanye West has been laying low in Wyoming, where he hasn’t been active in attempting to save his marriage with Kim Kardashian. We’ve learned that the rapper is struggling with the situation.
Kanye West is having a “really hard time” amid looming divorce reports with Kim Kardashian. “He’s struggling knowing that divorce is looming and looming. He knows it’s inevitable and now, it’s just a matter of when it’s all happening,” a source close to Kanye told HollywoodLife, exclusively. “He hasn’t really fought for her and hasn’t been around the kids or the Kardashian family. It’s not an ideal situation for anyone and it’s just sad for the entire family.”
Since her 40th birthday in October, it seemed as though Kim and Kanye had taken time apart. The SKIMS founder, 40, began stepping out without her wedding ring, before spending the holidays with the couple’s kids at her sister, Kourtney Kardashian‘s home. Meanwhile, Kanye’s been staying at his home in Wyoming where it was recently reported that he had hundreds of his sneakers shipped to the quiet ranch from the home he shares with Kim in Calabasas, CA.
“He’s completely icing people out that he would usually turn to for support and not talking to his closest friends,” the insider revealed, noting that communication has turned tumultuous between the pair, who wed in 2014. “It’s completely on Kanye’s terms when he talks to Kim because he can completely go dark and she can’t get a hold of him for days. He’s been bouncing all over the place secretly and hasn’t only been in Wyoming.” the insider explained, adding that Kanye “has a few people on his team who he trusts” to “communicate with people when needed.”
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s “struggling marriage”
In December 2020, a source told HollywoodLife that Kim and Kanye were “struggling to stay together as a couple and have for quite some time now,” adding that they were “living separate lives.” On January 5, multiple reports claimed the longtime couple are headed for divorce. Adding to the split speculation, Kim has been ditching her wedding ring on social media in 2021.
HollywoodLife reached out to representatives for both Kim and Kanye for comment, but did not hear back at the time of the initial divorce reports. We can not independently verify the divorce reports, and Kim and Kanye have not confirmed or addressed the claims.
