Kim Kardashian Spotted Without Wedding Ring Amid Uncertain Future With Kanye West
There’s trouble in paradise for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West—and the evidence might be hidden in plain sight.
The first couple of reality television has reached a breaking point in their relationship after mounting tensions in 2020. A source exclusively told E! News on Tuesday, Jan. 5, “It’s gotten to the point where they haven’t spent time together as a married couple in months.”
The insider said, “They’ve seen each other for the sake of the kids but have been living separately. Kim knows the marriage is over. She’s known for a while.” However, Kim hasn’t filed for divorce yet because she’s still deciding what’s best for their four children: North West, 7, Saint West, 5, Chicago West, 2, and Psalm West, 20 months.
There seems to be some solid proof that their relationship recently took a turn for the worse. Fans may have realized the stars were heading their separate ways after the KKW beauty founder shared two new pictures in which she appeared to have her wedding ring removed.
In one pic posted to Instagram on Dec. 22, she posed in the snow during her family’s Lake Tahoe vacation. The 40-year-old mom held up peace signs in their air, and her sparkler was nowhere in sight.
Kim appeared to be without it once again on Jan. 5, when she promoted her new SKIMS Body Basics on Instagram with a mirror selfie—sans ring.
Kanye proposed to the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star in 2013 with a 15-carat, multi-million dollar diamond ring, created by celebrity designer Lorraine Schwartz, making it pretty hard to miss. But since her Paris robbery in 2016, Kim has often opted to wear a simple gold band instead, although she sometimes goes without.
Last month, the couple noticeably spent the holidays mostly apart. Kim traveled to Tahoe in December with her sisters before privately celebrating Christmas with her family at Kourtney Kardashian‘s Los Angeles home.
