It appears that the duo might work things out and call off their divorce eventually. Inside sources told the outlet that while the divorce is still on for now, “there actually is a chance they could get back together. They’ve been spending time together privately and ‘working on rebuilding the foundation of their relationship.’”
Although the lovers have major areas of contention “that can be worked out,” they want the best for their four kids whom they share together– North 8, Saint 5, Chicago 3, and Psalm 2. While Kim was yet to start dating anyone since the split, Kanye allegedly kicked off a blossoming romance with Russian model Irina Shayk, who appeared in his 2010 music video for “Power.”

West & Kardashian Divorce Announcement
Kardashian filed for a divorce from West on February 19, 2021 after being married for six years as confirmed by E! News. They mentioned that their split was amicable, and that Kardashian is holding up well.
“Kim is doing OK, she’s mostly worried about her privacy and kids. She’s a mama bear and protective of her kids.”
Kardashian’s attorney, Laura Wasser, who represented her for the divorce could not be reached for comments, however, the news outlet noted that Kardashian had been considering the divorce for a long time, and intended to do it, but pushed it till this year. She also explained that neither of the estranged couple had any affairs, however, West has been absent from his family’s life for weeks.
“North has some understanding of what’s going on,” the outlet added. “But mostly the kids have always seen them apart so it isn’t super surprising.”
West lives in Wyoming, and would most likely continue to live there if they go through with the divorce.
Timeline Of Their Love Story
West and Kardashian met for the first time in 2003. At the time, she was still married to music producer Damon Thomas. Although they didn’t start dating until 2012, the rapper confessed that he had a niggling crush on the “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star from the moment they met each other.
“I just knew I wanted her to be my girl for a long time,” West told Ryan Seacrest in a 2013 interview. “I remember I saw a picture of her and Paris Hilton, and I remember telling my boy, ‘Have you seen that girl Kim Kar-dijon?”’ He said.
In the midst of the affection that they shared for one another, Kardashian and West continued seeing other people while keeping their friendship intact. The socialite shared that they started dating after she broke up with her second ex-husband–NFA star player, Kris Humpries.
In 2013, the now estranged couple got married and gave birth their first child, North. Although, Kardashian noted that the pregnancy wasn’t planned, she admitted that it was one of the best things that ever happened to them.
Later on, they became a family of four as they welcomed Saint in December 2015. At this time, Kardashian struggled with complications that stemmed from the birth of her second child, Saint. Reports revealed that she had to undergo multiple procedures to help her body recover from the trauma. In 2018 and 2019 respectively, the Wests welcomed two more kids, Chicago and Psalm.
It’s uncertain if the pair ever wanted to have more kids, but from the looks of it, that’s the least conversation on their list of things to talk about now.
Kardashian And West Agree To Co-Parenting
Mirroring Kardashian’s divorce filing from the 19th of February, West agreed to joint custody of their four young children. They’ve also agreed that they do not need spousal support.
The ex-lovers were among the most recognisable stars in the world and are both hugely successful people, so it’s understandable that neither of them requires spousal support from the other.

Meanwhile, 40-year-old Kardashian first found fame in 2007 as the star of her family’s reality show, “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.” The show remained popular since then, airing on channels like E!
Kanye West’s Listening Party
West held a listening party for his upcoming album, “Donda” recently. This was the third time since the beginning of this month. The first two were held in Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium and the last one took place at Soldier Field in Chicago, his hometown.
This listening party made headlines for many reasons, the most controversial being a sudden appearance of his ex-wife, Kim Kardashian, in a wedding robe.
The event featured Marilyn Manson’s appearance, West setting himself ablaze, and his decision to replace a Jay-Z verse with Dababy’s.
Also, the highlight of the party was when West and Kardashian dashed out of the stadium arm-in-arm after the “No Child Left Behind” performance came to an end.
