Kim Kardashian divorce LIVE – Marriage collapsed over ONE issue with Kanye after 'loyal' Kim broke back to avoid divorce

KIM Kardashian and Kanye West are getting a divorce, according to reports.

After a tumultuous year for the megastar couple, multiple sources confirmed to Page Six that Kim is now "done" with the rapper after the pair spent much of 2020 living totally separate lives.

The split is said to have come after Kim's mom, Kris Jenner, told her the relationship had to end because Kanye's erratic behaviour throughout 2020 – including publicly branding her Kris Jong-un – was unforgiveable.

Kim is understood to have already ditched her $1.3 million wedding ring, hired celebrity lawyer Laura Wasser who handled Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's split, and to have started settlement talks.

    KARVE UP

    It's likely to be one of the most expensive splits in history with assets totalling £1.6billion.

    When Kim Kardashian and Kanye West head hit the divorce courts, they’ll be wrangling over a huge property portfolio worth £68million, a fleet of supercars and the profits of two multi-million pound companies.

    Kim, 40, has hired hotshot lawyer Laura Wasser and is suing for full custody of the couple’s four kids – North, seven, Saint, five, Chicago, two, and Psalm, one.

    But she’s also planning to hold on to the family home – a £45million LA mansion they renovated together over four years.

    The audience was stunned at Wendy's comment, as were fans on Twitter who believed the moment to be an "outing" of his sexuality.

    One wrote: "Did @WendyWilliams just out Kanye?" with a finger snapping gif, while another asked earnestly: "Did Wendy Williams just out Kanye West???"

    After seeing her audience reactions, Wendy was quick to pull back from her bold accusation, saying: "What, NO, I mean, he knows guys! I didn't mean kissing guys, I meant kissing women.

    "But he makes music, and he likes his guy squad," she reasoned.

    Wendy then turned to her producer, Norman, asking: "You know what, I want to ask you a favor. Can you please look up Jeffree Star? Get me his number immediately."

    SAY WHAT? 

    Wendy Williams shocked fans on her show today with some claiming she "tried to out" Kanye West.

    Williams discussed the rumoured divorce between Kim Kardashian and Kanye West – then said the rapper may "have a new boyfriend" before quickly retracting the statement.

    The daytime host offered her opinion on the couple's split, and what she believes should take place if their divorce is finalized.

    Wendy, 56, expressed that she thinks Kanye, 43, should be able to go out and date normally following their breakup.

    She explained: "I don't think he'll ever get married again, but he should be allowed to go on and be single.

    "It shouldn't be like 'we caught him kissing on a yacht' it should be like 'oh no, that's his new boyfriend or his boo for the night' or whatever."

    “In an old song of mine from 2009 called B***h Please, I say a line about Kanye.

    “But it was very like Eminem. I mentioned like 50 celebrities,” he added of his dance track.

    'I'M SINGLE'

    Jeffree Star has slammed the shocking rumors he’s dating Kanye West and was the reason for his nasty divorce with Kim Kardashian.

    He captioned the video: "Hi 2021, let’s relax. Addressing this Kanye West and Jeffree Star situation and the truth about why I moved to the state of Wyoming.”

    The internet sensation then went on to tell his nearly 17 million subscribers: “I’m single … I’m not sleeping with anyone.

    “This is so weird … this is so stupid. Let me just say this one time … I like very tall men,” he added.

    Blond Pam lived with the Kardashians in Beverly Hills from 1991 to 1996 when she looked after the kids and also acted as Kris’ personal assistant.

    She would help look after Kim, brother Robert and sisters Khloe and Kourtney, as well as cook family meals and get the kids to do their homework.

    She said: “If I could speak to Kim now, I would say to her I want you to be happy, be strong.

    “And at this point I think she is doing the right thing putting the marriage on the line.

    “There will not be easy days ahead I am sure but she’s an overcomer.

    “If she can get over this mountain, there’s going to be good things in the future for her.

    “Kim is going to be fine, I know it.”

    'I DON'T BLAME HER'

    Kim Kardashian did "all she could" to save her marriage to Kanye West, but the reality star "had enough" after six years of trying, the Kardashians’ former nanny exclusively told The Sun.

    Pam Behan, 52, who spent five years literally keeping up with the Kardashians as the family's nanny in the 1990s, says the marriage is on the rocks because unlike Kim, troubled Kanye “can’t handle” his billion-dollar success.

    Pam, now a financial adviser in Aberdeen, SD, also says she believes 40-year-old Kim has had three failed marriages because her “beauty and intelligence” can “intimidate” men.

    Speaking exclusively to The Sun she said she "admired" Kim for sticking with her six-year marriage for as long as she has and for “trying all she can” to make it work, especially for the sake of her and Kanye's four children.

    The Sun has told how Kim decided to end her marriage after “momager” Kris Jenner told her “it’s over” and also that Kanye “wouldn’t take meds or help with the kids.”

    SCOTT, WHO?

    Kourtney Kardashian seems unbothered as she models a short deep-v jacket with nothing underneath, following her ex and baby daddy Scott Disick's vacation with his teenage girlfriend.

    Scott has been dating Amelia Hamlin since Halloween, and the couple just returned from vacation in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

    Kourtney, 41, owns and operates the blog Poosh, which she calls "the modern guide to living your best life."

    The mom of three frequently promotes her wellness shop to her Instagram stories and continued the trend yesterday.

    The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star posted a sultry photo of her reflection in a glass door, where she had on full glam, slightly messy hair and a massive oversized yet short black jacket.

    Kourtney left very little to the imagination as the picture showed full cleavage, and she wore nothing underneath the overcoat.

    KIM WANTS TO SELL $60M HOME FOR ‘FRESH START’

    Kim Kardashian wants to sell the $60m Calabasas mansion she spent six years building for a “fresh start” away from Kanye West, claim friends. 

    “Kim never loved the house, she felt it was cold and like living in a museum,” says a source close to the family. 

    “The process of getting it built was chaotic as Kanye was always changing his mind and starting over and now, the house represents the chaos of the marriage to her. 

    “It had bad memories – if she keeps it in the divorce, she’ll likely sell it and move somewhere close by for a fresh start,” the insider added.

    “She won’t go far – she wants her children to grow up close to their cousins – but she won’t stay in the house.”

    According to Forbes, the rapper has a net worth of £93million – making him a dollar billionaire – but much of his money is tied up in his company, Yeezy.

    The brand was valued at £2.2billion by the Bank of America, in 2019, and as the sole owner Kanye collects around 11 per cent of the company’s annual revenue.

    The shoe brand was launched by Nike then bought by Adidas, who manufacture and distribute the £150 trainers.

    In June 2020, Kanye partnered up with high-street chain Gap in a multi-million dollar deal, and the line is expected to officially start rolling out in 2021.
