“Kim is doing well, she’s taking things day by day,” the insider says. “Everything has been going as smoothly as possible with her and Kanye so far.”
The reality star, 40, officially filed for divorce from the rapper, 43, on February 19. The news came one month after Us confirmed Kardashian and West were engaging in settlement talks.
“[Kim] will continue to focus on her business empire,” a source told Us at the time. “Kim has been in individual counseling and is at peace with where her life is headed.”
Rumors of a split from West had been looming for months. In July 2020, a source revealed to Us that Kim had met with a divorce lawyer following West’s explosive presidential campaign rants. The pair first hit a rough patch years earlier.
“The turning point in Kim and Kanye’s marriage was when he said that slavery was a choice,” the insider said, referring to the “Bound 2” rapper’s controversial 2018 interview with TMZ. “They went through a really rough patch in the aftermath of that. Kim was completely mortified by Kanye’s ridiculous and outrageous comments. It took a lot for them to move past it.”
