Is the truth finally out?

A close friend of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West has denied that the pair are heading for divorce.

Rumours of the famous couple's marital split have been circulating in the wake of Kanye's hospitalisation last month.

US Weekly recently reported that Kim "feels trapped" in the relationship, and was even preparing to build a case for full custody of their children North and Saint.

However, close friend and frequent KUWTK co-star Jonathan Cheban was quick to deny the rumours in a recent interview.

"I didn't hear any rumours today, 'cause I've been busy, but I just literally got off the phone with them," revealed Cheban.

"They’re in good spirits. I don’t want to talk much about them because it’s not my business, but I do have to say that the divorcing is kind of hysterical,"

He added: "I just spoke to both of them on FaceTime literally before I was coming here and when I heard that I literally burst out laughing."

In addition, the official Twitter account for 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' enforced Cheban's words, adding that the pair "are NOT divorcing."

Various reports have also suggested that Kanye and Kim have been living separately since his breakdown

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are yet to respond to the rumours.

Interestingly, Kim's two previous marriages both ended in divorce.

Her first was to record producer Damon Thomas in 2000 when she was just 19. They split three years later.

Her second, more high profile marriage was to basketball player Kris Humphries - which infamously only lasted 72 days.

In related news, Kanye West's mood may have been slightly lifted this week after he was nominated for 8 2017 Grammy Awards.
