Embattled rapper Kanye West, 43, made headlines after he  moved his expansive sneaker collection out of the home he shares with Kim Kardashian. Although fans speculated that it was a sign the couple’s relationship was deteriorating further, a source close to ‘Ye spoke to HollywoodLife exclusively about the decision to move his 500-strong collection. “Kanye moving his sneakers out has nothing to do with the divorce,” the insider explained. “He has made Wyoming his main residence and his sneaker collection is his prized possession. Kim was thrilled and helped organize it and took over the closet with her Skims. They’re not fighting right this second. There’s nothing for them to fight about.”

The source also added that the pair were supportive of each other’s business endeavors, no matter the state of their romantic relationship. “While they’re not romantically involved right now, Kim and Kanye are both 100% supportive of each other when it comes to business,” the insider told HL. “They made that plan together for Kanye to move his shoes out. Kanye decided he wanted to have his sneaker collection nearby and Kim was thrilled to be able to have her closet to hang her Skims as they both continue to grow their brands. She’s making the closet like a showroom and she’s excited for it.”
It comes amid speculation that Kim and Kanye are headed for a divorce after six years of marriage. The rapper moving his sneaker collection to his ranch in Wyoming, which was first reported by Page Six, certainly fueled those rumors. “They both felt it would be less dramatic without both of them in the house,” a source told the outlet at the time. Nevertheless, another insider recently told HL that the couple, who share four children together, have been communicating better. “Kim and Kanye have been spending more time communicating on the phone,” the source EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife. “It started about 3 or 4 weeks ago and it’s much better than it was between them, but Kim still needs more. She’s being patient though because she does feel Kanye is starting to try.”
