OREANDA-NEWS. Sources from the entourage of the TV star Kim Kardashian said, that several events at once pushed her to divorce from rapper Kanye West. The first serious conflict in the star couple broke out in 2018, writes the newspapper «US Weekly» with reference to the Kardashian entourage. West then said in an interview, that slavery in the United States was a choice, not a duty of the black people. A friend of the TV star noted, that these words seriously upset her.

In July 2020, West publicly admitted, that he had discussed the possibility of an abortion with his wife before the birth of their daughter North. Then the rapper posted a series of tweets in which he accused his wife of intending to send him to a psychiatric hospital.

«After that, there was no turning back for Kim. She could brush off the shocking public statements, but she couldn't ignore the fact, that Kanye mentioned children. In her opinion, this was unacceptable, and she was afraid, that one day North would read about it», said a source from the Kardashian entourage.

On January 6, 2021, it was announced, that Kardashian and West had decided to divorce. The initiator of the breakup, according to some sources, was the rapper's wife. A number of media outlets reported on West's plans to move to London after the divorce and become a preacher. The couple has already submitted the documents for the start of the divorce procedure to the court.
