Kim Kardashian could be headed for divorce just days after giving birth, with new reports that the reality star was dumped by husband Kanye West within a week of son Saint’s birth.
The couple has faced rumors of trouble for months, dating back long before Kim got pregnant for the second time. The latest report comes from Life & Style magazine, claiming that Kanye West walked out on the family just after the baby came home from the hospital.
The source said it came after a blowout fight when Kim confronted Kanye for being distant. Sources say Kanye has spent much time away from the family, focusing on his work and his new album instead of following through on his duties at home.
“Kim yelled at Kanye for never being around or including her in any of the decision-making – he’s always discounting her ideas and ignores her,” the source said, via Celeb Dirty Laundry. “His response was to walk away. That’s when Kim really flipped out. But Kanye just kept walking, turning back only to tell her, ‘I’m done,’” the source added. “‘Now Kim’s been telling friends, ‘I feel like I’ve been dumped.’”
The source added that Kanye West is planning to retreat to Paris to work on his music, and Kim is “begging him” not to go.
This is also not the first time that Kanye has been accused of threatening to move to Paris and leaving the family behind. During Thanksgiving, 2014, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian faced divorce rumors when Kanye reportedly skipped out on the family dinner and then planned to move far away.
Reports at the time claimed that Kanye was spotted at Ralph Lauren’s restaurant in Paris with two male friends while the rest of the family was at Khloe’s house for Thanksgiving dinner.
But it can be difficult to find the truth when it comes to Kanye West and Kim Kardashian divorce rumors. The couple faces a different report of breakups seemingly every week, including several reports during Kim’s pregnancy that her “diva” behavior was driving Kanye away.
Earlier this year, a source close to the couple told Celeb Dirty Laundry that Kim’s insecurities and her difficult pregnancy brought the couple to their breaking point.
“Kim is like a mad woman when she is pregnant, and she lashes out at everyone,” the source said. “To top it off, her self-esteem is at an all time low because she just turned 35. After she was photographed wearing rubber sandals, she was a mess for nearly two days over it. Even her paid staff aren’t getting paid enough to be around her, Kanye is at his breaking point. It will be a miracle if he manages to not dump her before his son is born.”
There is plenty of doubt over whether the latest reports are true. Kim and Kanye have faced down these rumors many times, and have never publicly wavered in their relationship. There are also simultaneous reports that they are planning their son’s baptism.

While much of the report may be in question, one point appears to be true. Kim definitely had a difficult pregnancy, gaining more than 50 pounds and dealing with plenty of complications. Back in November, Kim told E! News that she suffered from “every medical issue that you could probably have.” She added that the pregnancy have been giving her quite a bit of anxiety and the “inevitable” issues she would have to deal with.
That prediction turned out to be true, as Kim ended up delivering weeks earlier than expected.
If there is trouble in the marriage, the two are doing a good job keeping in under wraps. Neither Kanye West nor Kim Kardashian have commented on the divorce rumors, current or past.
