ET Online: Kim Kardashian Is Optimistic That She Will Be Okay as She Copes with Her Divorce
Kim Kardashian is reportedly ready to move on after she filed for divorce from her rapper husband, Kanye West. Kardashian feels relieved following her divorce.
A source close to reality star Kim Kardashian revealed to Entertainment Tonight that she is somewhat relieved after ending her marriage to Kanye West. Speculations of the couple’s relationship have been making the rounds for a while now.
According to the insider, the model feels like "there is a weight lifted off her shoulders" after officially filing for divorce last Friday. The separation has been in the works for "a while now," the source revealed.
KARDASHIAN OPTIMISTIC ABOUT THE FUTURE
After filing, she reportedly spent time with her family in Palm Springs, California. “Kim feels like she can put that part behind her and start to move forward in healing,” the insider added.
“She knows she will be OK. It’s just going to take some time to get used to her new normal,” said the source. Kardashian filed for divorce on February 19 after six years of marriage.
She asked for joint custody and physical custody of the four kids they share – North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm. A source revealed that West is reportedly on board with the joint custody agreement and committed to co-parenting together.
The source further explained that Kardashian filing for divorce from West is just a formality. According to the insider, the couple's marriage has been over for a while, and they have been amicable for quite some time.
WEST SPOTTED AFTER DIVORCE NEWS
Meanwhile, since his wife filed, West was spotted for the first time on Tuesday without his wedding ring while visiting his Yeezy Academy in LA. The record producer was accompanied by several bodyguards and his youngest son Psalm.
According to the publication, days prior, Kardashian was also spotted out and about. Like her spouse, she too opted not to wear her wedding ring and engagement ring.
KARDASHIAN BREAKS SOCIAL MEDIA SILENCE
Following her filing for divorce, she finally broke her social media silence. The “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star took to Instagram to celebrate her best friend Jonathan Cheban’s birthday on Sunday.
According to Buzzfeed, some of the Kardashians gathered at Kris Jenner’s Palm Springs home for the celebration, with the Skims founder documenting the event. She reportedly seemed in high spirits despite divorce news.
WHAT LED TO THE DIVORCE?
According to Entertainment Tonight, the 40-year-old had reached her breaking point in her marriage with the 43-year-old Atlanta native since July. A source shared:
“Kim has been over Kanye in a romantic sense for a while but loves him as the father of their kids and doesn’t want to embarrass or hurt him.”
According to the insider, Kardashian’s last attempt to make their relationship work was when she flew to Wyoming that month and was seen crying in the car with him. After that, she knew that she had to end things for good.
Kardashian visited West at their Wyoming ranch after his controversial political rally in South Carolina, and his Twitter claims that his wife and mother-in-law were trying to lock him up. The pair were photographed having an emotional conversation in their car.
According to the source, that was the last draw for West. Kardashian reportedly takes her career, image, and businesses very seriously and keeps all that in mind with her relationships. West's actions have affected all aspects of her life.
