UPDATE (December 8, 2016, 11:30 a.m.) — A source tells PEOPLE that although Kim and Kanye are living separately, reports of a potential split are false. The couple is “currently living in separate households for medical reasons.”
“‘This divorce stuff is completely false,’ the insider tells PEOPLE. ‘Kim does not have any plans to divorce Kanye. She’s told me it’s false. The picture that’s being painted is that she is planning on leaving him because of the robbery and this [hospitalization] incident.'”
Kim withdrew from the spotlight after her traumatic October robbery, and Kanye was recently hospitalized for an alleged mental breakdown. Experiences like those will cause a rift between any couple–even the super famous and attention-loving KimYe.
According to Us Weekly, Kim may be ready to distance herself from her husband and start a new life as a single mom. A source revealed that although the reality star, who was married twice before, isn’t in a rush to sign any papers, “It will take some time before she can do anything, but she doesn’t want to stay married.”
The distance between the couple has reportedly already begun to widen, after Kanye was released from UCLA Medical Center following a nine-day stay. The rapper is now receiving outpatient treatment at an L.A.-area rental, while Kim has remained with the children in Bel-Air. An insider added, “[Kim] is being very protective and doesn’t want Kanye around the kids right now.”
As for now, sources say that Kim won’t make any decisions until ‘Ye is fully recovered. A friend of the Kardashians revealed that until then, “She’s being a supportive wife. She cares about Kanye and feels relieved he’s getting the help he needs, but she’s felt trapped for a while.”
