Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West are living separately and in couples counseling after six years of marriage, a source close to the family has confirmed to TODAY.
The two have four children together, North, 7, Saint, 5, Chicago, 2, and Psalm, 1. The source said the couple had been living separately for the past few months, with West in Wyoming and Kardashian West and the kids in Calabasas, California.
The news of their separation comes after several months of public signs of splintering between the two celebrities.
A source told E! News of their counselling sessions: “Divorce has been discussed, but Kim wants more than anything for their relationship to work. There wasn’t anything specific that happened that led them to this point … They are 100 percent aligned when it comes to the kids.”
Kim, 40, hasn’t been seen wearing her wedding ring, and Kanye, 43, remained at his $14 million Wyoming ranch over the holidays instead of spending it with the Kardashian family, who drew criticism for their extravagant celebrations.
“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 continued.
This would be Kim’s third divorce. She previously hired Wasser for her divorce from basketball player Kris Humphries. Wasser, who has also represented Angelina Jolie, Britney Spears and Johnny Depp, was not immediately available for comment.
