Kim Kardashian's Latest Instagram Post Fuels Kanye West Divorce Rumors

Kim Kardashian’s new Instagram post seems to hint at where she stands with Kanye West amid ongoing rumors of the estranged couple’s divorce.
On Monday (January 11), the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star took to social media with two flirty images of herself wearing Skims to promote the launch of her brand’s upcoming hosiery collection. What’s most noticeable in the second photo, however, is the 40-year-old’s missing wedding ring, which is absent from her visibly bare left hand.
Time will tell whether the picture will remain on Kim’s Instagram feed, as she’s been known to post-and-delete similar, suggestive photos in the past.
As some will recall, it was only just a week ago that the reality star removed a picture on her Instagram feed showing her without her wedding ring — as captured via screenshot by BuzzFeed — before speculation of her impending divorce with West made headlines.
Of course, Kimye has not directly addressed rumors of their divorce, though outlets like Page Six have reported that their “divorce is imminent.” As one source told the outlet, “Kim got Kanye to go up there [Wyoming] so they could live separate lives and quietly get things sorted out to separate and divorce. She’s done,” adding that, "this divorce is happening because Kim has grown up a lot."
Of all the couple’s alleged marital issues, Kim’s “final straw” with West was apparently his now-infamous campaign rant in July 2020 in which he revealed they nearly aborted their 7-year-old daughter North West.
After trying “everything she can” to save their marriage, a source told Entertainment Tonight that Kim is ready for a “fresh start,” adding, “Kim has held on to the relationship in hopes of a change and for the sake of the kids, but all signs are pointing to divorce.”
