The fairytale marriage of African-American artiste and former presidential candidate, Kanye West, and reality show star, Kim Kardashian, has broken up.
The E! reality TV star filed for divorce from Kanye West on Friday, Feb. 19, according to court documents obtained by TMZ.
The development comes after a source revealed their relationship had effectively reached its breaking point following months of private turmoil.
“It’s gotten to the point where they haven’t spent time together as a married couple in months,” an insider shared with E! News. “They’ve seen each other for the sake of the kids but have been living separately. Kim knows the marriage is over. She’s known for a while.”
Kimye, who went public with their relationship in April 2012 and married in May 2014, share four children together, North West, 7, Saint West, 5, Chicago West, 2, and Psalm West, 20 months.
Kim, 40, held off on officially submitting divorce documents out of concern for their little ones.
“She wants to make sure she’s making the right decision for the kids,” the source explained to E! News.
