Even though Kim Kardashian tweets her love and support for Kanye West on the reg, don’t be fooled — their love is on the line. According to a source who spoke with In Touch exclusively, “they barely talk to each other anymore” after Kanye’s latest outbursts. Their fights have been so bad recently, that Kim even told her family she’s considering leaving her husband.
“It’s over,” an insider said. “She’s realized he’s not the man she fell in love with.” The final straw for Kim came after the rapper had a controversial interview with TMZ — calling slavery a “choice” — and tweeted his support for Donald Trump. “She called him out on his selfishness and how he doesn’t ever think of the repercussions it could have for her brands,” the source continued. "All he cares about is his music and clothing line.”
Even Kanye had a hunch Kim wasn’t happy in their marriage after the couple received backlash for his comments. He told The New York Times that he had a “real conversation” with his wife following his appearance on TMZ Live. “There was a moment where I felt like after TMZ, maybe a week after that, I felt like the energy levels were low, and I called different family members and was asking, you know, ‘Was Kim thinking about leaving me after TMZ?'” he said.

For Kim, “it’s gotten to the stage where her freedom is more important than being trapped in a bad marriage,” the source tells In Touch. “She’s sick of walking on eggshells.” But Kim — who went through a ongoing divorce with ex-husband Kris Humphries in 2011 — knows separating can be complicated, so the “last thing she wants is another lengthy divorce.” On the other hand, she feels she has no other choice. "Even when they’re together they barely say two words to each other,” the insider explains. “Kanye is fine living like that, but Kim can’t stand it. She wants passion in her life again. She wants a husband who worships her for who she is, not someone who uses her as a mannequin to sell his clothes.”
But is Kanye West able to handle divorce? “He’s strong enough now,” the source says. “Kim’s ready to start over — without Kanye by her side.”
