Kim Kardashian ‘set to divorce’ Kanye West and fight for custody of her children with troubled rap star
by True NewsGist
It took two failed marriages before Kim Kardashian found the love of her life – but is it all over now?
Sources are claiming that Kim has been plotted to divorce husband Kanye West and fight for full custody of their children North and Saint.
New claims have emerged that Kim has wanted a divorce for a while, and is allegedly trying to “build a case for full custody of the kids North and Saint”, according to American magazine Us Weekly.
The magazine says Kim definitely “wants a divorce” and knows for sure she “doesn’t want to stay married to him” despite over two and a half years together as husband and wife.
With the fairy tale possibly coming to an end, we take a look back at Kim and Kanye’s love story.
From the first time they met, there was a spark between Kim and Kanye.
They were destined to end up together despite a series of relationships with other people that kept them apart for years.
Neither were superstars yet when Kim joined the R&B singer Brandy, whom she worked for as a stylist, for a recording session of a track called Talk about Our Love at the Record Plant Studio in Hollywood.
Curvaceous and stunningly beautiful, Kim immediately caught the eye of Kanye, then, in early 2004, a young producer and songwriter with one hit album to his name. He was recognised as talented but had yet to become the enigmatic and controversial figure he is today.
Kim made the tea. She was in a steady relationship with Brandy’s brother, the rapper Ray J, with whom she made the notorious sex tape, so wasn’t free to pursue Kanye even though they fancied each other. He too was in a long standing relationship.
Kanye didn’t forget Kim, however, and, glancing through a magazine, he saw a picture of her with Paris Hilton in Sydney, Australia, in 2006 that reminded him what great legs she had.
The following September they were pictured together at the opening of the Intermix boutique in West Hollywood. Kim arrived with her younger brother Rob while Kanye was with his girlfriend, designer Alexis Phifer. Kanye is in the middle of a picture taken that night with Alexis on his right arm and Kim on his left.
This was the year, 2007, that Kanye told Kim he would marry her one day.
Kim had moved on from Ray J and had begun a relationship with the famous American footballer, Reggie Bush. Many predicted they would marry but this was clearly not the right time for Kim, who threw herself into her work after Keeping Up with the Kardashians began.
She was determined that her fifteen minutes of fame would become a lifetime.
“You have to stay committed,” she said.
She wanted to be a Bond girl but instead made a badly received film called Disaster Movie which showed acting was not her forte. A stint on Dancing with the Stars ended with an early exit from the top rated show.
