As Life & Style exclusively reported, Kim Kardashian is filing for divorce from Kanye West. The contouring queen decided to move forward with the separation despite the fact that her surrogate — who’s pregnant with the couple’s third child — is due in a few weeks.
“Of course having a third child and being single is incredibly daunting for Kim,” an insider tells Life & Style. But she has her large family to lean on. “Kim knows her mom, Kris [Jenner], and sister Kourtney will be there to help her pick up the pieces when Kanye is gone.”
In fact, 38-year-old Kourt serves as an inspiration to Kim. The mother-of-three has successfully raised her kids — Mason, 7, Penelope, 5, and Reign, 2 — since splitting from baby daddy Scott Disick in July 2015. “Yes, it will be chaotic and exhausting, but [Kim] can afford to hire nannies and night nurses, so it’s not completely overwhelming,” the insider explains of the 37-year-old’s current predicament.
Though some fans may think Kim and Kanye’s relationship drama is all for TV ratings — her show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, is currently in its 14th season — a second source insists the fashionista wouldn’t dump the rapper for more viewers. “Kim has a lot she still wants to accomplish, and she can’t do that if she feels Kanye is dragging her down,” the source says. “The last thing she wants is to become this rich, lonely, unhappy housewife, and that’s where her life is headed.”
The Kimoji creator had hoped things would get better after Yeezy’s breakdown a year ago, but they haven’t. “Kanye thinks he’s being spied on,” says the source. “Kanye will go days without talking to her. He’s hot and he’s cold. Even their sex life isn’t what it used to be.” We hope the pair will find a way to amicably co-parent their kids during this difficult transition.
