Update 01/19/2021 6:59pm:
Kanye West plans to speak with divorce lawyers this week after he and Kim Kardashian reportedly discontinued their marriage counseling sessions.
The new development comes less than two weeks after multiple sources said Kim plans to file for divorce and has hired high-profile divorce attorney Laura Wasser. Sources say the reality star feels the couple’s futures aren’t aligning as she continues to fight for criminal justice reform and work on her law degree.
“They are just not on the same page when it comes to their future as a family and Kim is okay with it,” one source said.
Sources have also credited Kanye’s political leanings and Twitter rants as reasons why Kim has lost patience with the marriage.
“Kim has become more independent and has lost patience with his antics, rants, the presidential campaign, and tweets,” a TV industry source said. “The love story between Kim and Kanye has been over for a long time. They adored each other but have too many differences.”
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have been married for nearly seven years and share four children.

Kim Kardashian is reportedly preparing to file for divorce from Kanye West after marrying in 2014. According to Page Six, “divorce is imminent” as Kim has hired high-profile divorce attorney Laura Wasser.
“They are keeping it low-key but they are done. Kim has hired Laura Wasser and they are in settlement talks,” one source claimed before adding, “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.”
Recently, Kim has been spotted without her wedding ring and Kanye remained in Wyoming over the holidays instead of spending time with the Kardashian family. The source claimed Kim has tried to protect and support her husband through his mental health struggles, but she “is serious about taking the bar exam and becoming a lawyer, she is serious about her prison reform campaign. Meanwhile, Kanye is talking about running for president and saying other crazy s***, and she’s just had enough of it.”
Another source said Kanye became increasingly turned off by the reality TV lifestyle and is “completely over the entire family…He wants nothing to do with them.”
This past summer, Kanye expressed that he wanted to divorce Kim and referred to her mother as “Kris Jong-Un” during separate Twitter rants. Kim attempted to address the situation by providing a statement on Kanye’s bipolar disorder. A few weeks later, it was reported that the couple took a family vacation in an attempt to save their marriage.
Since marrying in 2014, the couple has become parents to four children.
