Despite their problems, Kim Kardashian isn’t ready to divorce Kanye West, a source tells HL EXCLUSIVELY. She ‘wants them to work’ above all else.

Though Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are still living apart while their marriage struggles, the KKW Beauty founder isn’t looking to finalize anything just yet. Kim, a source close to the family tells HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY, “is not rushing to file for divorce. She loves Kanye very much and she doesn’t want to rock the boat. So right now, she’s waiting.”

Kanye has seemingly stayed at his 9000 sq. foot ranch in Cody, Wyoming, for months while reports of martial drama brew. Meanwhile, Kim is at the couple’s home in Hidden Hills with their four kids — North, 7, Saint, 5, Chicago, 2, and Psalm, 1. She’s also spent time with her family at their vacation home in nearby Palm Springs. Despite essentially living different lives, Kim is just trying to keep things normal, the source explained — even if she and Kanye are “both very upset.”

Make no mistake; Kim has definitely talked to her lawyer, Laura Wasser. She hasn’t asked her to “draw anything up” yet, though, according to our insider. “Kim’s holding back to see if it’s going to work,” they said. “She wants to have a family. She wants them to work.” HollywoodLife reached out to Kim’s rep for comment but did not hear back as of press time.

Kanye’s short-lived presidential run played a role in their marital strife, a separate source previously told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. After his July 4 announcement, Kanye shockingly went on a tear-filled tangent at a campaign rally, telling the crowd that he and Kim once considered aborting their now seven-year-old daughter, North. Throughout the summer, his increasingly erratic tweets included claims that Kim and her mother, Kris Jenner, had him “trapped.” Kim eventually issued a statement about Kanye’s bipolar disorder, saying that she was “powerless” to help him if he didn’t want to accept the help.

Another source told HL that Keeping Up With The Kardashians played a role in Kim and Kanye’s relationship issues, as well. “Kanye has never been into doing the show, the constant paparazzi, or the cameras and  that was a big thing they’d fight about for years,” the source revealed to HL EXCLUSIVELY. “Kim has felt for years that she has had Kanye’s back, but he hasn’t had hers.”

Kim Kardashian is dropping new SKIMS hosiery and her wedding ring in a photos! Amid reports that her marriage with Kanye West over, Kim ditched her massive diamond while modeling new tights.

Kim Kardashian was without her wedding ring in a number of Instagram posts on January 11, that showed the SKIMS founder modeling the brand’s new hosiery. Fans were quick to point out that Kim’s left hand, specifically her ring finger, was missing her massive diamond sparkler from husband Kanye West. Yet, many critics weren’t surprised to see her bare ring finger, as the couple is at the center of looming divorce reports.

This marks the second time this month (and it’s only January 11th) that Kim ditched her wedding ring in social media posts. On January 5, she went ringless while modeling a brown lingerie set from SKIMS’ new Body Basics line. Before that, Kim left her ring behind while celebrating Christmas Eve at sister Kourtney Kardashian‘s with her four kids — North, 7, Saint, 5, Chicago, 2, and Psalm, 1 — and the rest of the KarJenner family. The last time fans saw Kim rocking her wedding ring on social media was on December 14, when she modeled SKIMS Backless Shapewear.

A source close to Kim recently shared with HollywoodLife that “no one should be looking at her ring, whether she’s wearing it or not, as some sort of message” to be cryptic. “She often chooses to go without it for pictures because she likes a clean look,” the insider explained, adding that “when she’s home chilling out she doesn’t always wear it and that has been true for many years. It’s nothing new, people are just reading into everything.”

Throughout 2020, Kim stood by Kanye during bizarre his Twitter rants, the time he physically peed on a Grammy and even his short-lived presidential campaign. Despite her unwavering support, the couple appeared to quietly distance themselves from one another as 2020 came to an end. Toward the holidays, Ye’ retreated to his Wyoming ranch, while Kim traveled to Lake Tahoe and Aspen with the couple’s kids and her famous family. Additionally, Kim and Kanye haven’t been photographed together since October 2020.

Just a few days into 2021, Kim and Kanye’s marriage was on the chopping the block, according to three different reports. PageSix, which was first to report the troubling news, claimed that “divorce is imminent” for Kimye. The outlet also reported that Kim hired Laura Wasser, a powerhouse celebrity divorce attorney, who’s work with the likes of Angelina Jolie, Britney Spears, Heidi Klum and Gwen Stefani, among many other big Hollywood names.
