KIM Kardashian and Kanye West’s seven-year marriage has been officially over since February of 2021.
The couple’s split was not a shock to fans and followers, as the pair had been going through a rough patch for nearly a year prior.
Are Kim and Kanye back together?
Despite many rumors of a reconciliation, Kim and Kanye are not back together.
The reality star's relationship with Kanye became the talk of the town when she appeared during the final song of the rapper's Donda event, No Child Left Behind, wearing a Balenciaga Couture wedding dress.
TMZ reported: "Now, our sources with direct knowledge have told us for weeks the two are NOT back together… but they're forever family."
"Kim and Kanye have always supported the other's endeavors and will continue to do that in the future, whether it be a collaborative effort or not."
The mini-wedding ceremony took place just moments after Kanye set himself on fire and had to be put out on stage.
On September 13, 2021, Kim made headlines when she showed up to the Met Gala covered head to toe in a black Balenciaga outfit with a man seemingly appearing to be Kanye.
Yet, it was later revealed to be the designer's Creative Director Demna Gvasalia.
Just hours before her red carpet appearance, Kanye unfollowed Kim on Instagram.
For years, the rap star exclusively followed Kim on Instagram.
The former couple still followed each other on social media during the ordeal, though their relationship was rocked further last month.
News broke that Kanye admitted to cheating on Kim, leaving her "conflicted" and heartbroken.
It was after this that Kanye looked to have unfollowed Kim, instead, replacing her with 12 other music-related accounts.
On September 14, 2021, Kim posted a cryptic meme about giving up on relationships, saying: "Don't waste your energy trying to force something that isn't meant to be."
He aired his alleged infidelity to the world via his new music, writing in song Hurricane: "Here I go with a new chick… Still playing after two kids."
According to Page Six, Kanye “betrayed” Kim and cheated while the couple was together as he struggled with alcohol abuse.
An insider said: "The song is in a way his testimony of everything he did wrong and taking accountability for the marriage breakdown."
“If you look closer to the lyrics he is referring to his infidelity during his marriage with Kim, even after two kids,” a second source added.
Why did Kim Kardashian divorce Kanye West?
On October 9, 2021, Kim hosted Saturday Night Live and in her monologue shared a glimpse as to why she decided to divorce Kanye West.
The star said: "So when I divorced him, you have to know it came down to one thing – his personality.
"I know it sounds mean, but people keep telling me that comedy comes from truth.
Adding: "And if there’s one thing that I always strive to be, it’s genuine."
Kim also revealed in Thursday, June 3rd’s episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians why her and ex-husband Kanye West called it quits.
Khloe said in a confessional: “Kim is dealing with so much right now. And it’s tough because right before we got here, Kim and Kanye got into this huge fight.”
A clip is then played of Kim sobbing on the bed next to sister Kylie Jenner, as she said: “I can’t do this anymore. I can’t.
"How am I still in this place where I’m stuck for years? Like he goes and moves to a different state every year."
The mother of four continued: "And I have to be in a place where I’m together for the kids.
"And he’s an amazing dad. And he’s done an amazing job."
She continued: "I think he deserves someone that can support his every move and go to Wyoming to be with him and follow him everywhere.
"He deserves a wife who travels with him and is there for everything. I feel like a f**king failure."
As Kim continued to break down, Kylie began to cry next to her older sister.
The Sun also exclusively revealed back in February that the couple’s last straw was when they could not agree about a summer vacation destination.
A source told The Sun: "Friends have been told that the final straw came when Kim and Kanye were making family summer plans and they couldn't agree."
The source continued: "What seemed like nothing more than a simple conversation over dates and locations escalated, and sadly it turned into a huge blowout argument.
"The final fight that ended their marriage was over nothing more than summer plans.
"It was one blowout fight that wasn’t even that serious and it pushed Kim over the edge.
"Kim was just fed up with the endless conflict and finally called it quits."
What did Kim Kardashian’s divorce papers say?
In the divorce documents, Kim is asking for joint legal and physical custody of the couple's four kids, TMZ reported.
Sources close to the family told the outlet Kanye is "fine" with the joint custody arrangement as the couple is "committed to co-parenting together."
According to the insider, a prenup is already arranged to handle the pair's massive $2billion fortune and neither party is contesting the agreement.
The couple is also in the stages of reaching a property settlement agreement.
According to Forbes, the TV personality turned business owner is estimated to be worth around $900million.
The prenup revealed that Kim would remain the beneficiary of one of Kanye's life insurance policies, which is valued at $20million – even if the two divorced.
When did Kim and Kanye get married?
Kim and Kanye married in 2014 in Florence, Italy after dating for three years.
The pair tied the knot on May 24, 2014.
They had been friends since 2003, with Kanye famously saying in 2013 that he had wanted to be with Kim for a while.
He said: "I just knew I wanted her to be my girl for a long time."
In 2015, Kim shared throwback photos of the first time her and Kanye "really connected" in 2008.
The two were filming a pilot together, for a puppet show called Alligator Boots in which Kim was set to play Princess Leia.
After Kim's 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries in 2011, the star flew out to Paris to stay with Kanye and see his fashion show.
Kim and Kanye took their relationship public the following spring.
How did Kanye propose to Kim?
In October of 2013, a few months after their first child was born, Kim and Kanye got engaged.
The rapper projected the words "PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE" on the stadium screen at AT&T Park in San Francisco, where the Giants play baseball.
Kim accepted his proposal in front of family and friends, and a 15-carat cushion-cut diamond was placed on her left hand.
A few years later, in 2016, Kanye re-upped her engagement ring, replacing the original with a 20-carat emerald-cut diamond, which was later stolen during the Paris robbery.
When did Kim and Kanye have their children?
The couple share daughters North, 8, Chicago, 3, and sons Saint, 5, and two-year-old baby boy Psalm.
After dating for nearly a year, Kim and Kanye revealed in December of 2012 that they were expecting their first child.
Kanye even referred to Kim as his "baby mama" on stage at a concert in Atlantic City.
On June 15, 2013, North West was born. She is the eldest of the Kardashian-West clan, and has already performed on stage with her father.
North's first Vogue appearance came when she was just nine months old, in a spread for Kim and Kanye's pre-wedding cover story.
In May of 2015, after struggling to conceive, Kim and Kanye announced they were expecting their second child together.
Saint was born on December 5, 2015.
Because of her struggles with preeclampsia during her first two pregnancies, Kim and Kanye turned to surrogacy for their third and fourth kids.
Their daughter, Chicago, was born on January 15, 2018.
“We are incredibly grateful to our surrogate who made our dreams come true with the greatest gift one could give and to our wonderful doctors and nurses for their special care,” Kim wrote at the time.
The following year, it was revealed that the couple's surrogate was pregnant with their fourth child, Psalm.
Psalm was born May 9, 2019. Shortly after his birth, Kim and Kanye renewed their wedding vows.
The two continue to co-parent their children despite their looming divorce.
