Kim Kardashian and Kanye West had started dating in the year 2012 and in 2013, he had made a grand proposal for his ladylove. Kanye had proposed Kim using the giant screen at the empty waterfront ballpark of the San Francisco Giants, leaving her happily surprised. The couple had welcomed their first child, North West in June 2013, and had later gotten married on May 24, 2014, in a ceremony at a Renaissance fortress in Florence, Italy. The now-estranged couple had welcomed their second child, Saint West in December 2015 and the next two kids, Chicago West and Psalm West via surrogacy in 2018 and 2019 respectively. Their divorce has come as a shocker for their fans!
It was back in February 2021, when Kim had filed for divorce from her husband, Kanye West. Now, according to TMZ, as a part of the divorce settlement, Kim is keeping the Hidden Hills, California mansion, which she shared with her now-estranged husband, Kanye and their four kids, North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm. The decision is for the “much-needed stability” of their kids. The interesting part is that Kanye had designed the home in a multi-year project.
Ever since the reports of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s divorce had emerged in the media, fans are eager to know what went wrong in their close to seven years of marriage.

A couple of weeks ago, it was reported that the trouble in Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s married life had apparently begun when he had made a controversial statement that slavery was a choice. Us Weekly had quoted a source as saying, "The turning point in Kim and Kanye's marriage was when he said that slavery was a choice." The source had continued, "They went through a really rough patch in the aftermath of that. Kim was completely mortified by Kanye's ridiculous and outrageous comments." And things had taken its worst turn when Kanye had started sharing personal details in the media. The source had added, "But when Kanye told the world that he and Kim had discussed aborting North (in July 2020), it was the breaking point in their marriage."
In 2019, Grammy award-winner, Kayne West, for the first time, had interviewed his wife, Kim Kardashian. When Kayne had asked, “We are constantly in the news, and sometimes we end up reading unpleasant things about ourselves. Does it affect you?” Kim had retorted, “When it’s about my family, I get really protective. Most of the time when things are so baseless or absurd, I have a good laugh. But as far as dealing with it on a daily level for me, I’m pretty content. If it’s about you, or the kids, or my sisters, I can get worked up when I read things that are false or negative. But when it’s about me, I’ve learned how to block out the noise for the most part.” (Don't Miss: 'Fantastic 4' Fame, Loan Gruffudd Files For Divorce Without Telling His Wife Alice Evans, She Reacts)
