Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are back together after their divorce, but how does the reality star feel about the rapper publicly discussing their marriage? A source tells this story.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s friendship is much “stronger” than it was six months ago.
After the reality star decided to file for divorce from the rapper in February, multiple sources told E! News that Kim and Kanye are no longer talking. In March, one insider claimed that Ye even changed his phone number, forcing the ex-spouses to communicate exclusively through their teams.
However, time heals all wounds: a source close to the 40-year-old reality star told E! News, “Kim and Kanye are doing great now. Now that the pressures of marriage have eased, they’ve become friends.”
The insider adds that Kim and Kanye’s communication and parenting together is “much better” now that they’ve adjusted to their new normal. The source shares, “They reunited a few months ago and are now friends.
Although they continue to lead separate lives, the source reports that Kanye informed Kim of his plans to release a song about their divorce on his upcoming album DONDA. “Kanye did write a song about Kim and their marriage, and Kim has spoken out about it,” the insider told E! News. “He was respectful and warned her, not wanting to put her on the spot.”
And while Kanye has not spoken publicly about their divorce, the source claims that he “has a lot of respect for Kim and wants to keep the family together,” adding, “Now that they have space, Kim feels relieved that they can be cordial and spend time together for the children.”
Most recently, the estranged husband and wife took their four children, North, Seinte, Chicago and Psalm West, on a family outing to a museum in San Francisco.
And even the Kardashian-Jenner family is on good terms with Kim’s ex. Khloe Kardashian made a subtle sign of support for Kanye by liking one of his Instagram photos, which features gold necklaces with the names of his four children.
Khloe double-tweeted Kanye’s Instagram account after sources confirmed that the artist is dating model Irina Shayk. And while some expected Kim to express jealousy, the source said the KKW Beauty mogul “doesn’t mind” if Kanye is ready to move on. As the insider said in July of this year, “If it doesn’t affect her kids, she’s fine with Kanye going on dates.”
In just a few hours, Kanye will present “DONDA” during an audition event at Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta. Apple Music will broadcast the event live at 8 p.m. ET.
