Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West will be getting a divorce, The Associated Press reports.

TMZ was the first to report the news of the impending divorce. Page Six had reported that Kardashian West had considered divorce for a few weeks now. News outlets such as BuzzFeed News, Fox News, The Associated Press picked up on the story on Friday.

What we know

Per Fox News, West is not objecting to the request. There is no date of separation planned yet. But there is a prenup in place for the couple, according to Fox News.

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.

More context

Kim and Kanye have experienced problems in the past. Back in July 2020, Kanye West accused Kim of trying to lock him up based on medical grounds, as I wrote about for the Deseret News.
