According to a Daily Mail report, rumors of a potential divorce between the couple have been circling around for a while, even prior to this incident.
Here are 5 things you need to know.
1. Kim’s robbery incident and Kanye’s unexpected outbursts took a toll on their marriage.
Kim has not been seen since she was robbed at gunpoint in Paris. A source told People Magazine that due to stress and exhaustion, Kanye has been more prone to outbursts. A combination of the two put a significant strain on their marriage in the last few months.
The magazine also reported that Kim had a scheduled appearance at the Angel Ball in New York where her late father was being honored, but instead, she went to support Kanye after his breakdown.
“She definitely rolls her eyes when he goes into his mode or rants… She’s also very protective of him, but he can be exhausting,” says the source.
2. Kim and Kanye are reportedly living apart now.
Even though Kanye has been discharged from UCLA Medical Center, he has been living in a rental home as an outpatient. Meanwhile, Kim and the kids are staying in their Bel-Air mansion.
Cosmopolitan reported that Kanye attended their son Saint’s first birthday at the mansion for a “low key” party.
