More fuel is being added to the speculation that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West might be headed for a divorce. Things have reportedly been tense between the two following his bizarre presidential campaign rally on Sunday and then a string of troubling, since deleted, tweets on Monday. Now TMZ is reporting that West is refusing to allow Kardashian to visit him in Wyoming, where he’s been living.
The outlet reports that Kardashian has tried two times this week to fly to see West, but he has shot down the idea both times. TMZ also reports that he is avoiding her phone calls and the two have had “very little communication” since his rally on Sunday.
During the rally, West told a very personal story of him and Kardashian considering getting an abortion when she was pregnant with their first child, North.
He then went on a Twitter tirade during which he claimed the Kardashian and her mom Kris Jenner were trying to fly to Wyoming to have him locked up.
TMZ reports that Kardashian has been concerned for West’s mental well being since they went on a trip to the Dominican Republic earlier this month and something was “seriously off.” She then flew back to Los Angeles to be with their kids. Shortly thereafter, he abruptly flew to South Carolina for his rally without giving her any notice.
During the Twitter rant, West claimed he “has been trying to get divorced since Kim met with Meek at the Warldolf [sic] for ‘prison reform.'” That meeting occurred back in 2018.
Sources that spoke with PEOPLE this week made similar claims to what TMZ’s source said.
“There has been enough communication, both in the past few days and in the weeks prior, to establish that both sides feel the marriage is over.”
The source went on to say that the divorce has been a “long time coming,” and the two “were even attempting to figure out the most amicable and loving co-parenting situation.”
“But now Kanye has, well, he has gone down a different path,” the source continued. “Both in terms of deciding to announce his presidential bid, and also in terms of how he is choosing to express himself and the things he is choosing to say.”
In a long statement on Instagram on Wednesday, Kardashian addressed the current situation with West, including his struggles with bi-polar. She said that unless West himself wants to engage in getting help, the family’s efforts are futile.
