Kim Kardashian’s decision to divorce Kanye West is thought to have been partly swayed by his reported refusal to take medication for his bipolar disorder.
The 43-year-old rapper has also not taken any time to help parent their four children, as he stays at his $14 million ranch in Wyoming while Kim has the kids at their Calabasas mansion.
With Kanye having “no plans” to return to Kim, she has seen that there is no alternative to bring a permanent end to the six year marriage.
The 40-year-old Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has reportedly hired celebrity lawyer Laura Wasser to push through the divorce as battle plans are drawn up to carve up the couple’s near $2 billion fortune.
With settlement talks reportedly ongoing, a source has told The Sun that Kim had felt their marriage was no longer working as she felt like a “single mom” to North, seven, Chicago, two, Saint, five, and one-year-old Psalm.
The source said: “Kim wanted nothing more than to make her marriage work.
“She supported Kanye with his choice to run for president and tried to make amends even after Kanye tried to reveal her private life to the world.”
Kim is reportedly finished with trying to keep Kanye together, especially as they are living hundreds of miles apart and she has the children to care for.
The source added: “She has given her marriage her all and finally realised at a certain point it is time to walk away.
“She loves Kanye and always will, but he isn’t willing to remain on his medication and to do what it takes to make it work.”
Kanye has opened up about his bipolar disorder before and Kim supported him after his presidential bid ended with him saying that they wanted to abort North before attacking Kim and Kris Jenner in an epic Twitter rant.
Kim said that Kanye was suffering a bipolar episode but the rapper himself has said that he will not take medication for his mental health issues.
He once tweeted: “I cannot be on meds and make watch the throne level or dark fantasy level music.”
Kim also admitted to Vogue in 2019: “For him, being on medication is not really an option, because it just changes who he is.”
Recent months have been difficult for the couple and Kim feels that Kanye is “out of control.”
The source added: “When Kim and Kanye started their family, Kim felt they were on the same page about life and their future but that last two years she has watched as he’s spun out of control, separated himself from her and the children and will do nothing to work on their marriage.”
The source continued to say that they were sleeping “in separate rooms” and she gave him space and time so he could focus on his career and projects.
“She never envisioned her life as a single mother but refuses to live like a single mother while she is married. She knows she deserves better,” said the source.
