Despite having what seemed like a whale of a time on their family vacation earlier this month, it looks like Kim Kardashian and Kanye West will still be living apart. In different states, in fact…

Prior to their family vacation in the Dominican Republic earlier this month, the pair had been living apart while Kanye West focusses on his mental health, as well as his ongoing presidential campaign.

The 43-year-old rapper was living at his ranch in Wyoming, while the 39-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashians star was living in Los Angeles with their four children – North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm.

According to a source who opened up to People, Wyoming “is where he wants to live”, while Kim “is happy to be back” in L.A.

“It’s hard traveling with the kids for such a long time,” the source added.

“Kim still seems focused on making her marriage work. She is pretty quiet about her exact plans for the future, but for now she seems okay with Kanye living in Wyoming.

“He is moving ahead with the presidential campaign. This is a decision that no one can change his mind about.”

This news doesn’t really surprise us, as we learnt last month that Kimye had actually been living apart for almost a year!

“Kanye has been in Wyoming for the last year. Kim goes about once every five weeks and brings the kids,” a source told US Weekly at the time.

“When together, things are fine between them but they haven’t been spending time together because he moved his life completely to Wyoming and that’s not where their life is, their family is, their kids are in school or the larger family is.”

Another insider added that although Kim Kardashian “envisioned spending the rest of her life with him,” she has now been forced to “get real for the sake of the family.”

The second insider added that prior to the Coronavirus pandemic, Kim and Kanye had actually been talking about getting divorced. However, due to the pandemic and Kanye’s ongoing battles with his mental health, talk of divorce is firmly off the table…

“Before this situation, over the last three months or so, they had been talking about divorce,” the insider said, before adding that there would be “no conversation” about divorce until Kanye West is in a “better mental space.”

What will happen to the Kardashian Wests over the next few months is anyone’s guess…
