When the word first got around that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were reportedly getting divorced, it was pretty hard to believe.
Could the modern day power couple that is Kimye really be splitting?
Well, the rumours are true. Kim Kardashian has officially filed for a divorce from Kanye West.
Talk of the power couple divorcing first came to light after Page Six reported that Kim had hired high-profile attorney, Laura Wasser to handle their divorce at the beginning of January.
Page Six also reported that in the weeks prior to the divorce speculation, Kim had also been seen without her wedding ring.
They both also reportedly didn’t spend the holiday season together, with Kanye staying at his Wyoming ranch and Kim heading to Los Angeles to celebrate with her family.
“Kim got Kanye to go up there [Wyoming] so they could live separate lives and quietly get things sorted out to separate and divorce. She’s done,” the source revealed.
