Kim Kardashian, Kanye West still together but living separate lives as she focuses on prison reform, says source
A source noted that 'Kim seems happy and is very focused on work and causes. She strongly believes she can make a change when it comes to prison reform'
Is Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s marriage falling apart? It’s been a while since the reality star and her rapper husband made an appearance together. Ever since West’s failed presidential campaign and multiple episodes of breakdown that accompanied it, rumors are speculating that they are happier apart and a few sources have reportedly claimed that they are living “very separate lives”.
A source told PEOPLE, "Kim has work and projects that are important to her, and Kanye has his. Their lives don't overlap much.” Furthermore, the report states that Kim’s representative had no comment to make when they were reached out and West did “not respond to PEOPLE's request for comment.” The source noted that "Kim seems happy and is very focused on work and causes. She strongly believes she can make a change when it comes to prison reform."
Earlier this week, Kim rallied to stop the execution of Brandon Bernard, who was on death row for killing two Christian youths in 1999. She publicly called out the US justice system for going ahead with his execution by injecting lethal injection. In a series of tweets shared by Kim, she has sung praises of Bernard.
She took to Instagram on December 10, the day he was executed, to share details of her last conversation with him via Instagram stories. She told her followers that it was the “hardest call” she has ever had and had to mute her mic while speaking to Bernard to hide her crying.
Even after he was pronounced dead, the training-lawyer continued to slam the system for taking the life of a man for a crime he committed when he was 18, instead of letting him serve a life sentence.
Meanwhile, West has been silent since he stepped down from the presential race. On the day of the election, November 4, he shared a picture of him over the electoral map and captioned it, “Kanye 2024”. He even voted for himself on the day before the election. The rapper’s Twitter handle has been quiet since, without any more updates.
On November 23, Kim congratulated West on the 10th year anniversary of his album 'My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy', through an Instagram post. She wrote, “Happy 10 year anniversary to Kanye’s 'My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy' album. For those that don’t know the story behind 'Lost In The World'...Kanye couldn’t come up with some of the lyrics but then realized he had them in a poem he had written me that was my birthday card he gave me for my 30th birthday. He took the poem he wrote me and made it the song. I keep everything! Swipe to see the card.” She also shared the pictures of the card, in which you can see West’s hand-written poem for her.
Kim and West share four children together. Their relationship is said to have been deeply impacted by his meltdown during the South Carolina campaign, as he spoke about Kim wanting to abort their daughter North and even called his mother-in-law Kris Jenner a “White Supremacist”.
