Kanye, 43, announced he was running for US President in July last year and had a public meltdown soon after during a rally, in which he made a series of wild allegations about Kim.

Kim – who has reportedly hired celebrity attorney Laura Wasser amid her "plans to divorce Kanye" – hit breaking point when the Yeezy mogul declared his political ambitions, Page Six claimed.

An insider claimed Kanye's campaign made Kim realize she “needed to end the marriage for the sake of her kids and her own sanity".

The couple – who married in 2014 – have four kids together, North, seven, Saint, five, Chicago, two, and Psalm, one.


“She never came out publicly and endorsed [Kanye's presidential bid]. Her silence on it spoke volumes," the source went on.

"Kim was really supportive of Kanye during his struggle with his mental health. But she knows she has to do the right thing for her kids.”

Kanye finally conceded on November 3.

A second source said Kim isn't in the right mindset to date anyone – despite fans urging the KUWTK star, 40, to romance CNN reporter Van Jones.


“She’s not dating anyone because, if she were, it would be a career move," they claimed.

"She can’t go to restaurants now on dates and have paparazzi [due to the pandemic]. She can’t date quietly; she doesn’t even understand what that would be like.”

Back in July, Kanye made a series of sensational claims against Kim during a presidential rally in South Carolina.

He said she considered aborting their eldest child North, sobbing: "She had the pills in her hand. My girlfriend called me screaming, crying.


"I'm a rapper. And she said I'm pregnant. She was crying."

He then ranted on Twitter that he's been trying to divorce Kim for almost two years ever since she met Nicki Minaj's ex Meek Mill at a hotel.

The Yeezy mogul also accused the KUWTK star and her mom, Kris Jenner, of being "white supremacists".

It was reported this week that Kim is preparing to split from Kanye after six years of marriage.

The SKIMS founder hit breaking point after they had a "huge fight" in early December, in which Kanye "blew up" at her,  Us Weekly claimed.

Sources exclusively told The Sun that Kim is divorcing Kanye because he is refusing to take medication for his bipolar disorder.

“She loves Kanye and always will, but he isn't willing to remain on his medication and to do what it takes to make it work," the insider said.

Kanye has tweeted in the past about not taking medication for his well-documented mental health issues, saying: "I cannot be on meds and make watch the throne level or dark fantasy level music."

Kim too opened up to Vogue in 2019 about Kanye, telling the magazine: “For him, being on medication is not really an option, because it just changes who he is."

She is now battling for full custody of their four kids and "won't back down", sources told The Sun.

“Neither of them want to seem like the loser in this divorce and they both will fight hard for their kids," the insider said.

“Kim has made it clear she wants full custody so if Kanye tries to fight her on that, the custody battle will be brutal."

The children have been staying with Kim in Los Angeles, while Kanye lives at their sprawling Wyoming ranch.

The estranged couple are also set to go to war over the $60 million luxury mansion in Calabasas, California, as both fight to keep the dream house.
