For the past few months, the Kardashian faithful have kept themselves focused on the reported divorce between Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. But now, those marital woes are no longer coming only from the tabloids, as they’re now catching up with the final season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Recent episodes have shown Kardashian lamenting the problems she and West were facing at the time, with the reality star even going as far as to say she feels like “a failure” because her third marriage hasn’t worked out With these episodes currently airing, one had to wonder how Kardashian feels about these moments coming to light. Now, a source claims to know how she feels about reliving the issues through the show.
It’s safe to say Kim Kardashian has quite a bit on her plate right now, with the divorce proceedings, the recent Keeping Up with the Kardashian episodes, and the show’s impending series finale. A source has now alleged to E! News that the combination of these things is “a lot for her to take in when she’s reminded of it.” The insider also claims that Kardashian “gets upset” whenever she thinks about the divorce or when it’s brought up to her.
Kim Kardashian reportedly filed for divorce back in February and in her filing, asked for joint physical and legal custody of her and West’s four children. West formally responded to the filing in April, with the rapper also asking for joint physical and legal custody. It’s also been reported that neither West nor Kardashian are planning to contest their prenuptial agreement.
While the actual divorce proceedings have seemingly been drama free, reports alleged that Kanye West has taken issue with one aspect of the divorce. Sources claim the musician is “annoyed” by the fact that the public perceives the situation as Kardashian making the decision to get the divorce. While Kim Kardashian is reported to have put considerable effort into salvaging the marriage, sources allege that West had wanted out of the relationship for at least a year.
The source continued to tell E! News that Kim Kardashian becomes “sad” when thinking about how the split could affect her and West’s children. However, the source also appears to indicate that the star is looking to the future:
It is sad for her at times to think about the kids having to deal with their parents being split… She tries to put everything behind her and is truly focused on herself, the kids and her future plans.
This seems to line up with recent reports that Kim Kardashian is allegedly moving on, as she attempts to navigate her “new norm.” Reports also point to her traveling and spending more time with her kids, which is evident through some of her recent Instagram posts. Meanwhile, Kanye West is reported to have taken up residence at his ranch in Wyoming, where he’s allegedly focusing on his music. But a recent rumor also suggests that he may be moving on with a new love.
With only a few episodes of Keeping Up with the Kardashians left, it’s hard to say if Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s relationship will be explored any further. Ultimately, viewers will just have to wait and see how things pan in the final stretch of the long-running series.
You can catch the final episodes of Keeping Up with the Kardashians Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET on E!.
