  • Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are reportedly splitting and are "in settlement talks".
  • The news comes after Channel24 reported that the couple was spending "a lot of time apart".
  • "They are keeping it low-key, but they are done," insiders say.

In December we shared that Kim and Kanye were spending "a lot of time apart" and now it seems the beauty mogul is gearing up to divorce the rapper.

2020 was a rollercoaster year for the couple, following Kanye's bid to run for president, an emotional rallyerratic tweets that followed, and Kim expressing concern for her husband's mental health.

Though the couple was reportedly in counselling, multiple outlets have now reported Kim is officially "done" with the drama.

Sources told Page Six on Tuesday "divorce is imminent" for the two – and Kim has hired celebrity divorce attorney, Laura Wasser, to represent her.

"They are keeping it low-key, but they are done," the insider says, adding that "they are in settlement talks".

Kim has reportedly been spotted without her wedding ring on, while Kanye's been huddled up in Wyoming – and didn't spend Christmas with the Kardashians, despite prior reports.

According to E! News, Kim hasn't filed for divorce yet because she wants to do things right for their four children, North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm.

On why Kim has decided to go forward with proceedings, a source says: "This divorce is happening because Kim has grown up a lot. 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 shit, and she's just had enough of it."

Meanwhile, another insider says Kanye is "over" being part of the Kardashians' busy lives and finds it "unbearable".

"[He] is completely over the entire family... He wants nothing to do with them."
