Kim Kardashian hasn’t filed for divorce yet because she’s still not sure?

Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West arrive at the 2020 Vanity Fair Oscar Party held at the Wallis Ann...

For the past nine months or so, we’ve been seeing a ton of exclusives from People Magazine, Page Six and various British outlets about the state of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s marriage. They had problems before 2020, and Kim even consulted divorce lawyers at one point (early 2017), but she stuck with Kanye… until she didn’t. Kim has been over him for a while. They largely lived separate lives in 2020, and Kim kept leaking sh-t to People about how she was seriously considering divorce. And now here it is – Page Six broke the story last night (which I covered earlier), and other outlets followed suit. There’s not much new info:

Kim Kardashian West and Kayne West had a tumultuous 2020 — including the rapper’s unsuccessful presidential bid and numerous Twitter rants — and it looks like the pair’s 2021 might be even more tumultuous with the possible demise of their marriage. After six years of marriage and eight years together, Kardashian West is working with top divorce lawyer Laura Wasser, though she has yet to file for divorce.

A source tells PEOPLE that West is bracing himself for the reality star to file. However, there still may be a chance the couple weather this storm as another source tells PEOPLE they are in therapy in an effort to salvage their relationship.

“Kim and Kanye are in counseling and exploring their options,” says the source. “They have been working on their marriage for a long time, but no decision has been made.”

[From People]

I don’t think they’ll reconcile. I honestly believe that Kim gave Kanye multiple opportunities to change and really be a full partner in their marriage, and he wouldn’t or couldn’t. I’m also not surprised that Kim hasn’t actually filed for divorce yet – she’s working with Laura Wasser, and I bet there’s a lot of sh-t happening behind-the-scenes. Kim probably wants to have some stuff locked down before she files. Sources also told Us Weekly that Kim’s friends are surprised that she hasn’t filed yet, for whatever that’s worth. As for the other Kardashian-preferred outlet, TMZ, they had a more nuanced exclusive on the imminent divorce:

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have been in marriage counseling, and we’ve learned the subject of divorce was looming for much of 2020, but they haven’t given up. Multiple sources with direct knowledge tell TMZ, the marriage was in deep trouble for the last half of 2020. In fact, we’re told Kim was ready to pull the plug on the marriage at one point but it was when Kanye was going through a serious bipolar episode and she felt it was cruel to do it when he wasn’t well.

They have been living separately for a few months … with Kanye spending the majority of his time in Wyoming while she has been in Calabasas with the kids. They were absorbed in personal business projects and didn’t focus on making any final decisions.

Kim has gone back and forth, we’re told … at times thinking divorce was the only option but other times believing there was a chance to save the marriage. That’s why they took a family vacation late last year … to see if they could repair things. Everything got put on hold for the Christmas holidays, but now the issue is front and center. Kim’s had disso queen Laura Wasser on retainer for years for various reasons, and the subject of divorce was discussed months ago, but Kim never gave the green light to file. Her ambivalence is understandable, what with 4 small kids. They married in May, 2014.

We’re told no final decision has been made, and it’s telling they’ve been in counseling for a while. We’re told their issues have been neither contentious nor ugly, but they do have lots of differences … from lifestyle to politics. They are, however, fully aligned on parenting. One thing our sources wanted to make clear … there is no third party.

[From TMZ]

I think that’s probably true about “there is no third party.” Kim has four children, a bipolar husband, fifty businesses and her law studies. Now, does that mean that she hasn’t been weighing her own romantic future? Of course she has. The truth is, Kim outgrew Kanye. Maybe they outgrew each other, but Kim absolutely has such a different energy and such different interests now, and I am definitely curious to see the energy Husband #4 brings to the table. Anyway… I do hope she files and I actually hope there isn’t a ton of drama. Kim might be worried that she’ll trigger another manic episode if she moves too fast on the divorce.

    She’s probably just dragging it out so she can try and stay in the news cycle. I put nothing past these people.

    • Persephone says:

      Yup. That’s it exactly.

    • STRIPE says:

      Maybe. But maybe not. My ex sister in law is bipolar (and like Kanye doesn’t manager her illness at all) and my brother went through the motions of leaving her several times before he finally did. It’s really hard to do because you could potentially love the person so much, and you know their mental illness is not their fault, you don’t want to abandon them…but if they refuse to take responsibility you have to leave. It’s just hard to do that for so many reasons.

      All that to say, I feel for Kim and am willing to believe her back and forth on this is genuine. Her leaking to the media? Eeeeehhhhh not sure about that part.

  2. Angel says:

    Yeah If my husband told the world that we almost aborted our first child, i would file for divorce too. I can’t even blame her this time.

  3. Lillyfromlilooet says:

    Obvi this is from her people–it’s almost like she’s sending a warning to Kanye through press coverage.

  4. Snuffles says:

    I think she’s sure. She’s just waiting until she gets her ducks in a row to protect herself, her businesses, her kids and any other future endeavors.

  5. 123qwerty says:

    I dunno. This seems to have been a story for years and no official action. I don’t think Kim minds his come and go habits. I’m also sure they have a very detailed pre-nup.

    • Lillyfromlilooet says:

      I think Kim was willing to, and fine with, having a marriage with some distance. I think Kanye’s mental health problems were what changed this.

  6. Aphra says:

    Kim and Brad would be a hilarious gossip couple!

  7. sunny says:

    Yeah, I think Kayne was absolutely a difficult person to be in a relationship with. Kim probably has outgrown him because she has so many other concerns, children, her businesses, maintaining her fame, her causes. That must be hard to balance with a narcissist like Kayne.

    I will always dislike Kim for her family’s continued exploitation of black people. They are gross. But Kayne has a whole host of issues, including his misogyny. Shrug.

  8. Ann says:

    This is going to be so messy and Kanye is going to be the one making it messy. Like he gives a damn about NDAs. Kim is going to have to smack the fear of God into Ye for him to keep his mouth shut during the proceedings. I hope for their children and everyone’s general sanity that it goes as well as possible, but I have zero faith Kanye will be able to handle this any way other than his way.

    • Snuffles says:

      Well, Twitter is saying that Kanye is having an affair with Jeffre Star. That ought to do it.

      • Ann says:

        Oh God lol things are going to kick off good and sloppy.

      • ME says:

        Well of course the Kardashian Klan has to make sure the men in any divorce or relationship that has ended looks like the bad one. The Kardashians are perfect angels after all aren’t they? I wonder who put this rumor out there? Hmmm let me think ! Also, a lot of the sh*t being said on twitter is homophobic. A cheater is a cheater, doesn’t matter if it’s with the same sex or not.

  9. Lunasf17 says:

    Team Kim on this one! I do feel bad for the kids (and side eye her for bringing more kids into the situation when it was crystal clear that the marriage wasn’t working but she has enough money and resources to care for them). Sometimes divorcing a narcissist is almost worst than being married to one so I hope he doesn’t drag this out and use the kids against her.

  10. Daphne says:

    Why wish divorce on a woman with four kids. I thought Kim was supposed to have been around the block so she is not better than Kanye so why should she divorce him and look for husband number four. It is not like she will be liked either way. This narrative that she must divorce why?

  11. Daphne says:

    And all this divorce talk, how is helpful to the kids or Kim. Yes he said some shit about the kids so she is going to teach her kids to change men because they can? Kim was not blindsided by Kanye so basically don’t see why all the jealous people out there want a divorce that can harm young children just for entertainment.

  12. Tiffany :) says:

    Did ya’ll see why Jeffree Star is trending on Twitter? Hmmm…

    Divorce filing delays many times are strategic/working on financial details. I’m sure their finances are very complicated.

  13. Elizabeth says:

    Like Kim isn’t a narcissist herself lol

  14. ME says:

    Kim must be loving all this new attention she’s getting. It’s been a while huh Kim? This family will do anything for attention. They’ve been putting out divorce rumors for how many years now? At this point, is this story really shocking to anyone or are we all just bored because were locked up in our houses and need to laugh at some funny memes about how Kim can now stop dressing like she’s in the Hunger Games or how she can finally buy furniture for her home lol.

  15. Queen Meghan’s Hand says:

    Time to make your move Van Jones!! Totally ‘shipping them.

    But in order for Jones to become Husband No. 4 Kim needs to FILE B!TCH!! Perhaps in 2017 even 2018 had she divorced him she would be mocked for her third divorce but Kanye has shown what a miserable partner he is time and time again. FILE!

  16. Mindy_Dopple says:

    I think she’s taking it in stages. After he got comfortable with the idea and they agreed, they let the news leak. She’ll let that settle with him for a while and then move to the step. Letting each stage calm down before moving on to the next so he doesn’t freak out and think it’s coming all at once? With their separate lives, I really thought she would just stayed married and keep control of the custody of the kids but maybe that’s what’s in the NDA? Or part of the agreement they’re working on now? Don’t get messy or we’ll take the kids away due to XYZ?

  17. Ariel says:

    I’m guessing she wants custody and property fully settled before they involve the Court.
    And the property could take awhile.
    I don’t think Kanye has more than a passing interest in the kids- or an ego interest- as in they’re MINE!!!
    No real interest in the day to day of raising them.

    • ME says:

      I don’t know, North really seems to enjoy spending time in Wyoming with her dad (and the nannies of course). He seems to favor North more than the other kids. She’s older and maybe realizes she doesn’t like her mom’s lifestyle of “look at me” and would rather go to Wyoming where it’s quiet and peaceful? Who knows.

  18. BayTampaBay says:

    I do not follow the Kardashians so I have two questions:

    1. I thought Kim had three husbands not four. Who are/were her four husbands?

    2.. What is the real reason Kin & Kris Humphries divorced? Did it ever come out?
