Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are reportedly headed for divorce, and as they allegedly prepare to split, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star is said to be keeping her relationship drama away from both the media and her family.
On February 24, a source spoke to In Touch Weekly, confirming news of Kim Kardashian’s impending divorce. According to the magazine source, it was one of many of West’s recent “erratic” outbursts that was the final straw for Kim Kardashian.
During a trip to New York City earlier this month, where West debuted Yeezy Season Three at New York Fashion Week, the 38-year-old reportedly caused a scene while staying at the Waldorf Astoria with his wife.
As the source explained, Kim Kardashian’s husband was heard yelling, “I am Kanye West and my wife is Kim f—–g Kardashian.”
“[Kim Kardashian’s] embarrassed to no end over his gargantuan ego and ridiculous tweets,” the source explained. “By the end of Fashion Week, she just wanted to crawl into a hole and hide.”

While debuting his collection, West treated his audience at Madison Square Garden to music from his upcoming album, and in one of the tracks, the rapper attacked singer Taylor Swift after publicly calling a truce just a short time ago. In the song, “Famous,” Kim Kardashian’s husband took aim at Swift, claiming to have made her famous. A short time later, Swift fired back at the lose-lipped rapper in her Grammy Awards acceptance speech, telling the audience that regardless of anyone who tries to discredit her, she will remain focused on her career, which began well before West infamously stole her microphone during the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.
Following his fashion show disses, West continued his outrageous behavior on Twitter, and in his latest rant, Kim Kardashian’s husband targeted a music critic, telling the man that his children should be ashamed of him, and then offering them free Yeezy tennis shows to make it easier for them to cope with the embarrassment of being related. He also took more shots at Swift and Macklemore.

In another report, a source claimed Kim Kardashian was doing her best to keep her relationship troubles private.
“[Kim Kardashian] is so secretive right now,” a source told Radar Online on February 24. “She tries to talk about anything but Kanye… Kim is getting really sick of Kanye lately. She really doesn’t want another divorce and she has decided that this is her last marriage, but she doesn’t know what else to do.”
Kim Kardashian may already have two divorces under her belt, but according to the source, she was left with no other option when it came to her third husband.
“They keep everything so quiet,” added the friend. “They never tell what they’re really going to do.”
Kim Kardashian and West are parents to 2-year-old North West and 2-month-old Saint West. Kim Kardashian’s first child with the rapper was born in June 2013, and months later, the two became engaged at San Francisco’s AT&T Stadium, and months later, the moment aired on an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
While Kim Kardashian’s wedding to West didn’t air on the show, the series included a number of scenes leading up to the ceremony, and plenty of photos of the event were eventually shared. Then, one year later, the couple announced their second child was on the way, and in December 2015, Saint West arrived.
