In a since-deleted Instagram post, the reality TV star was seen posing for a mirror selfie without her wedding or engagement rings on either hand. This spotting by fans came in hours after reports claimed that the couple is parting ways after a six-year-long marriage and an eight-year-long romance.
“It’s gotten to the point where they haven’t spent time together as a married couple in months. They’ve seen each other for the sake of the kids but have been living separately. Kim knows the marriage is over. She’s known for a while,” E! News quoted a source as saying.
Kim, however, has yet to file for a divorce. According to reports, the reason why she hasn’t gone ahead with the paperwork is because she wants to make sure she is doing right by her four kids.
“She wants to make sure she’s making the right decision for the kids. It’s not about the marriage anymore, she’ll always care for Kanye but it’s over between them,” E! News quoted the source as saying.
The celebrity couple who have been together since April 2012, are parents to four children – North West, Saint West, Chicago West, and Psalm West.
The couple’s relationship has seen increased pressure in recent months. Back in July, Kardashian had spoken up for the first time in public about West’s mental health and termed the situation “complicated and painful.”
Earlier last year, it was reported that though the couple is together, they are not living together.
