Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have reportedly been facing marital troubles for months, and now, a source claims the Keeping Up With The Kardashians couple is more miserable than they have ever been.
After just under two years of marriage, a new headline claims Kim Kardashian and West are “separated.”
“[Kim Kardashian] and Kanye don’t sleep in the same bedroom in the new house,” a source told Radar Online on April 5. “At Kris’s house they had to be together because there wasn’t a lot of room. At the new house they have tons and tons of space and so they are apart even when they’re home, and night is the worst time.”

The insider claimed Kim Kardashian and West don’t even see each other at certain times, and when it comes to the distance between them, the time apart hasn’t been a good thing.
“[Kim Kardashian] and Kanye don’t want to address the problems, so they act like they’re happy in public, but they’re not even sleeping in the same bedroom at home. They aren’t happy,” the source told Radar.

According to a separate Radar Online report on April 4, Kim Kardashian’s relationship with West started off as a publicity stunt orchestrated by Kim Kardashian’s mother, Kris Jenner, who reportedly set them up in an effort to increase her fame. In an upcoming book, Kardashian Dynasty, written by author Ian Halperin, “dark secrets” about the family, including Kim Kardashian’s relationship with West, will reportedly be revealed, and ahead of the bombshell book’s release, a publishing insider spoke out.
After Kim Kardashian’s marriage to Kris Humphries came to an end after just 72 days, Jenner reportedly made it her business to get her daughter hooked up with another celebrity.
“Halperin says he discovered that Kris Jenner called a crisis meeting and came up with the idea of moving the plot forward by having [Kim Kardashian] date someone else who was fashionable and ideally of African American descent,” the insider told Radar Online. “In the end, Halperin says the list included one Caucasian, Justin Bieber, as well as Kanye [West], Nick Young, of the LA Lakers, and Matt Kemp, of the LA Dodgers, who once dated Rihanna.”
Ironically, Bieber has been linked to Kim Kardashian’s older sister, Kourtney Kardashian, for the last several months. As Us Weekly reported in December, 2015, the couple has allegedly been dating since shortly after Kourtney’s split from Scott Disick in July of that year. In addition, Kim Kardashian’s younger sister, Khloe, was linked to Kemp after her marriage to Lamar Odom ended in 2013.
“[Kim Kardashian] settled on Kanye, though at first she thought he was too short for her,” the insider explained, adding that “Halperin says that Kris was upfront with Kanye about this being a set up and he agreed because he thought his star as well as Kim’s would be augmented.”
The source went on to reveal that despite their arranged relationship, Kim Kardashian and West ultimately did have feelings for one another as they welcomed two children, North West and Saint West, and wed in May, 2014.
“It became friends with benefits and Kim got pregnant and they really did fall for each other,” the insider explained.
Kim Kardashian and her family will return to the E! Network on May 1 for the 12th season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, airing at 9 p.m.
