What we know
Back in early January, a PageSix report cited “multiple sources” who said that “divorce is imminent” between Kim Kardashian West and Kanye.
- “They are keeping it low-key but they are done,” one of the sources said. “Kim has hired Laura Wasser and they are in settlement talks.”
As I wrote about for the Deseret News, the PageSix report said Kim Kardashian had not been wearing her wedding ring. Kanye, meanwhile, had been spending time in his Wyoming ranch.
- “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 source told PageSix.
