Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have reportedly been considering getting a divorce for the last couple of weeks.
The 43 year old and Keeping Up With The Kardashians star, 39, are said to have been exploring the option of ending their marriage prior to Kanye's explosive Twitter rant, where he revealed he's been trying to divorce Kim since 2018.

"There has been enough communication, both in the past few days and in the weeks prior, to establish that both sides feel the marriage is over," they said.
