Why Kim Kardashian Won’t File For Divorce From Kanye West As They Live ‘Separate Lives’

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are reportedly 'struggling' to 'stay together as a couple' but there's no divorce planned 'anytime soon'.

It doesn’t look like Kim Kardashian, 40, and Kanye West, 43, will be getting a divorce in the near future despite currently living “separate lives” and it’s all because they’re both “content” with how things are for the time being. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star and the rapper have been “struggling” for “months and months”, according to some sources, but they’re “happy” with the way things are with their kids and staying in the locations they prefer, even if they are different states.

“Kim and Kanye are struggling to stay together as a couple and have for quite some time now,” one source EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife. “It doesn’t seem like she’ll ever actually file for divorce, at least anytime soon. They really are living separate lives right now and have for awhile.”

Kim and Kanye share four kids together, including North, 7, Saint, 5, Chicago, 2, and baby Psalm, 1, and although they primarily stay in Los Angeles with Kim, they often visit Kanye at his ranch in Wyoming, where he lives part of the time and makes music. “She’s in L.A. most of the time and he’s spending most of his time as secretly as possible in Wyoming with a team around him,” the source continued. “He’s there as much as he can be and loves it there. They both seem happy doing whatever it is that they’re doing and the kids are as well.”
“Kanye will always worship Kim. He loves her so much,” a second source EXCLUSIVELY told us. “He doesn’t seem worried about losing Kim. Kim also isn’t planning on leaving Kanye anytime soon.”

The husband and wife have sparked divorce rumors on more than one occasion in the past, and even though they’re living in separate locations, our source insists that their love for each other is strong and they’re both “on the same page” about their current situation. “They are both kind of on the same page as they live separate lives,” the second source explained. “This really has been going on for months upon months now. They still talk constantly and they both just seem content for now with the way things are.”
“Kim loves Kanye just as much as Kanye loves her,” the source went on. “It’s really a soulmate type of love they have, but their marriage and relationship is not a normal one. She’s very happy having the kids with her in L.A. near her family and she wants Kanye to be happy and take care of himself. If that means being in Wyoming right now, she supports that.”
Kim and Kanye have been married since 2014 and have lived very public lives during their years together. Some of their personal struggles have also come to light, such as Kanye’s diagnosis of bipolar disorder, proving they face regular hurdles just like anyone else. Kim has opened up about Kanye’s diagnosis several times over the past few years, including in an interview in May 2019, when she talked about how traveling can affect him.
“Traveling a lot does set it off, so he doesn’t travel as much as he used to,” she told Vogue. “But honestly, I never want to speak for him, because I am not in his mind. But I think some of the hurtful things that I read online … ‘What is she doing? She’s not stopping him.’ …. Like, it’s my fault if he does or says something that they don’t agree with?”
“That’s my husband,” she continued. “I share every opinion that I have and let him know when I think something’s wrong. Or if it comes to him being in the middle of a bipolar episode, I’ll do everything to be supportive and help to calm the situation.”
