Popular celebrities Kim Kardashian and Kanye West divorce after six years of marriage. 

“I was never a big fan of Kim, but what happened was a little sad,” said Emily Smith, 8.

 On January 5th, 2021, Kim Kardashian announced that she is officially ending her marriage with Kanye West. Resources say Kim has had enough of Kanye’s political tendencies and bad behavior. Kanye running for president last year caused a huge divide in their marriage. She hated that he was running. She didn’t feel like he was putting their family first and was being completely selfish. 

“I thought they would last longer then they did. They seemed like they had a good, happy marriage. I don’t know everything, so I have to respect them and hope this was the right decision,” said Camryn Jones, 8.

Over the past few months, the two have been living separately. Kim says that she has work and projects that are more important to her, and Kanye has his. She has also quoted multiple times that she worries about her kids with this situation. She says she “needed to end the marriage for the sake of her kids and her own sanity.”  

“I’m surprised they got divorced, but I guess it’s for the better if thats what makes them happy,” said Addie Hume, 8.

Kim says she, “Has been done with their marriage since July and is finally ready for a fresh start.”
