In May 2014, American icon Kim Kardashian and top rapper Kayne West got married. After years of Kayne waiting for his opportunity to be the next man in Kim’s life he got the chance and things went smooth for a long time.

The couple have four kids together with the family living in Calabasas, CA for years until recently, when Kanye moved to Wyoming in late 2019 permanently. He would visit after he was hospitalized in 2017 to clear his head but he then decided to build a new mansion in the small town of Cody he would go to. Reports last year started coming up about Kim and Kayne talking about divorce but were trying to fix damage with counseling. But Kayne may have crossed a line with some actions he made.

For years, Kayne has suffered with bipolar disorder, which is an illness that causes extreme mood swings with emotional highs and lows. His battle has been on  display through his music, and recently he has tried to find ways of  dealing with his disorder like becoming Christian.

With a marriage already hanging by a thread, Kayne had his first presidential speech in July 2020. What most people didn’t know was that Kayne was in the middle of a high bipolar mood change. 

In an article by ABC News by Beatrice Peterson entitled “’Everybody that has a baby gets a million dollars,’ Kanye West says at 1st campaign rally”, Peterson explains how Kayne started by answering people’s questions but things took a turn as he broke down into tears saying his father wanted to abort him.

Then he continued,  “I almost killed my daughter. I love my daughter… God wants us to create.” This was him describing how he wanted to abort their child.

Still in tears, he went on to talk about African Americans and brought up Harriet Tubman. He said, “Tubman never actually freed the slaves. She just had the slaves go work for other white people.”

He then briefly mentioned a few times  during his speech about his relationship and how Kim wants to divorce him.

In reports Kim was hurt by the comments but understood some reason behind them. She put out a statement saying, “Anyone who has this or has loved ones in their life who has bipolar knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand.”

In an article by Page Six by Mara Siegler, multiple sources that talked to CNN  describe reasons both have wanted a divorce for almost a year but didn’t want to at the same time.

Siegler wrote, “Kim has grown up a lot. She is serious about taking the bar exam and becoming a lawyer, she is serious about her prison reform campaign. Meanwhile Kanye is talking about running for president and saying other crazy stuff and she just can’t handle him anymore.”

Siegler also went on to write, “Kayne is completely over the entire Kardashian family and their over the top reality star lives. He also called Kris Jenner (the mother of Kim) Kris Jong Un.”

Siegler also wrote, “ The divorce paperwork has been drawn up for months and the discussion has been there but a big part of why nothing has happened is because of the Calabasas home.” They paid 40 million for it and have put in 20 million dollars in renovations. Kim wants to keep the house because that’s where their kids have lived but Kayne will not agree to terms.

For years this marriage has been in the spotlight showing every detail but with divorce being discussed for almost a year and the drift between both sides the end of KimYe is happening very soon.

Filming on the last season of KUWTK was done on Saturday the 9th and from the cast sad social media posts Kayne was nowhere to be seen so that means curious viewers might get a peek at what truly happened to break their marriage up.
