- Kim Kardashian took to her social media platforms to post a new picture of herself but followers were after information
- Online users commented on the picture but very few were concerned with her look as most wanted details on her relationship with Kanye
- Fans asked questions about the rapper's whereabouts and also searched for clarification on the divorce rumours that have been confirmed by insiders but not Kim herself
Kim Kardashian has uploaded another picture of herself to her social media platforms but fans were not as complimentary about her appearance as they usually are.
Online users decided to take the opportunity to ask Kim about her husband, and rumoured soon-to-be-ex, Kanye West.
Kim had the same picture uploaded to both her Instagram and Twitter accounts and the replies and comments on both platforms were centred around getting information about the potential divorce.
Rumours that Kimye is no longer a celebrity couple began circulating last year but they were refuelled by sources close to the situation saying that the divorce is moving forward.
Despite multiple publications reporting and different sources confirming the split, neither Kim nor Kanye has put out an official statement regarding the matter.
This lack of confirmation led online users and fans of Kim K to ask her for themselves on social media.
Some checked whether the rumours were true:
@Nwadikedeb: "Are you and Kanye really divorcing???"
@TochiAgu1: "Kimberly can I see your ring finger? I’m trying to check something."
Some wanted to know about Kanye:
@hermesposer: "where’s Kanye?"
@Moses_Hadebee: "Kim why are you divorcing Kanye?"
And some had decided that the divorce had already happened and that Kim was better for it:
@dreambrother808: "Looking like old school Kim, not being controlled by Kanye’s styling choices."
@gaurbage: "Got that divorce glow"
Check out the post below:
Briefly.co.za previously reported on the situation after sources confirmed to various US publications that the rumours were real and that Kanye's failed presidential bid was the final straw for Kim before beginning divorce proceedings.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's divorce proceedings were reportedly triggered by the rapper's failed run for president. Sources have come forward alleging that Kanye's highly-controversial and much-discussed campaign became the final straw for Kim and made her realise that the marriage was beyond saving.
Many are of the opinion that Kardashian was also not a fan of the remarks that the rapper made about Harriet Tubman, Kris Jenner and mental health. Kanye very publicly criticised the Kardashian-Jenner family and refused psychiatric treatment for his bipolar disorder.
A source confirmed to Page Six that the two celebs had been amicably continuing with divorce proceedings for some time before rumours began making headlines. The source was also reported as saying that there was no bad blood between Kim and Kanye and they have both accepted the situation:
“There isn’t a war happening. They’ve been working through a lot for a while now, for a few months.”
A second source re-iterated the sentiment that Kim's final straw was Kanye's sham of a presidential campaign and that it was the moment that she felt a separation would be better for their four kids.
The same source then added that Kanye is "over" the Kardashian family too. Neither West nor Kardashian has come out and confirmed the divorce but fans have come to accept it to be as-good-as true.
