Over the weekend, Page Six published a photo capturing the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star without her wedding ring as she was going over to a friend’s house. The photo, said to have been taken on February 18, appeared days after Kim filed to end her union with the “Stronger” rapper after nearly seven years of marriage on Friday (February 19).
In the picture, Kim, wearing a leather jacket and blue pants, can be seen without her wedding ring on her left hand, which is noticeably bare. (See the pic here.)
However, this wouldn’t be the first time Kim has been pictured this way. She was previously seen ringless in an Instagram post in January when reports described their divorce as “imminent.”
The reality star is seeking joint legal and physical custody of the couple’s four kids: North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm. Despite the “Jesus Walks” artist’s string of tirades following his infamous campaign rant in the summer of 2020, Kanye's mental health struggles will not affect the custody of their children, as Kim apparently has complete confidence in Kanye's ability to help raise their kids.
Rumors of the couple’s impending divorce have been going on since Kanye's public outbursts, which was reportedly the “final straw” that prompted her to call it quits. As for why it’s taken this long, TMZ sources claim Kim's been prepared to end her marriage for a long time, however, she “felt it would be cruel to end the marriage when [Kanye] wasn’t doing well.”
Neither Kim nor Kanye has spoken a word of the divorce reports as yet.
