Rumours are circulating that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are headed for divorce after six years of marriage.

Kanye West raised eyebrows this week after targeting his wife Kim Kardashian and her mother Kris Jenner during a lengthy Twitter rant, and reports claim divorce may be looming for the couple.

The 'Jesus Is King' rapper, 43, made a thinly-veiled suggestion that Kim, 39, had an affair with rapper Meek Mill before labelling momager Kris a "white supremacist" and dubbing her "Kris Jong-Un".

In a shock statement, Kanye appeared to confess he's been "trying to divorce" Kim since she met up with Meek in a hotel to discuss prison reform in November 2018 - but this isn't the first time the famous couple have faced divorce rumours.

On Sunday (Aug 2), it was reported that Kim and Kanye had taken a private family vacation with their children as they try to navigate "an extremely rough patch" in their relationship.

The couple have allegedly not spent time together for "months" and have been discussing divorce over the last year or so, with the couple reuniting for an emotional run-in in Wyoming just the week before.

"The family trip will mark one of the first they've taken in a long time," say TMZ, adding, "and outside the vacation, Kim and Kanye hadn't spent much time together outside family birthdays and holidays".

On Monday (Jul 27) Kim Kardashian reunited with West in Wyoming where the 39-year-old beauty mogul was spotted breaking down in tears during an tearful conversation with her husband.

However, the following day, Kim arrived back in LA by herself following the their intense discussion. The reality star was spotted alone.

Kim was pictured in a white sweat co-ord as she came off her private jet with her hair in a bun. She appeared to wipe her cheek and kept facing as she got into a waiting SUV.

An insider source told People Magazine, Kim is "very emotional about everything, and also exhausted".

"She feels very hurt by Kanye. She has tried to reach him multiple times and he just ignores her. It's all a bad situation". The insider added, "She decided to fly to Cody to speak with him in person. She doesn't want to be ignored anymore."

After Kanye's erratic outburst, reports surfaced claiming he and Kim have been considering divorce "for a long time" as sources claim "both sides feel the marriage is over".

An insider told People that "divorce had been in the process for several weeks." A second source added, "There has been enough communication, both in the past few days and in the weeks prior, to establish that both sides feel the marriage is over."

The rumours surfaced shortly after West announced his presidential bid, and a tearful confession during his first rally in South Carolina that he and Kim considered aborting their daughter North, seven.

"They have work to do, as parents and as a spouses who want to end this phase of their relationship," the source continues. "Kanye knows all of this, and everything that is happening right now is just like a horrible sideshow to what the real issues are."

The report adds that the two "were already nearing the end of their marriage" prior to West's recent behaviour. "There have been multiple attempts to talk to him about the situation, but right now nothing is proving successful," the source says.

Kim is yet to publicly address the divorce rumours. Since their lavish 2014 wedding the Forte di Belvedere in Florence, Italy, there have been numerous reports speculating a separation between Kim and Kanye.

In December 2016, it was first reported that Kim was seeking a divorce. "It will take some time before she can do anything,” claimed a source, "but she doesn’t want to stay married."

After West was hospitalised following an episode of mental exhaustion, the pair were said to be living apart while West was receiving treatment. New reports claim the couple still live on opposite sides of their sprawling Hidden Hills home.

The day after Kanye posted - and deleted the majority of - his tweets, Kim shared a lengthy statement on Instagram calling her husband "brilliant but complicated" and admitted she is "powerless".

"I've never spoken publicly about how this has affected us at home because I am very protective of my children and Kanye's right to privacy when it comes to his health," she wrote.

"Those who are close with Kanye know his heart and understand his words some times do not align with his intensions."
