Kanye West ‘is anxious and very sad’ as he’s been having a difficult time amid a growing sense that his marriage to Kim Kardashian is coming to an end.
‘Kanye is not doing well,’ an insider told People Wednesday of the 43-year-old star. ‘He knows that the marriage is over, and there’s nothing that can be done right now.’
The Grammy-winner ‘also knows what he is losing in Kim,’ the source told the outlet of the celebrity split, as divorce papers have yet to be filed.
The end of the marriage comes amid a time that Kardashian ‘defended him privately to her family,’ and ‘stood beside him at a time where a few wives would have done that.’
The Keeping up with the Kardashians star, who shares four kids with West – daughters North, seven, and Chicago, three, and sons Saint, five, and Psalm, one – ‘has made it clear that Kanye can talk to his children anytime he wants’ and ‘has never threatened to keep him from them,’ as ‘she only requires that he is not going to damage them.’
Kardashian has been hoping West can stay in touch with his kids every day utilizing technology.
‘Kanye can FaceTime the kids anytime he wants,’ the source said. ‘He hasn’t been great about that, but everyone is encouraging him to do it. Kim doesn’t want to hurt him. She just knows she can’t be married to him anymore.’
The Bound 2 artist remains ‘very aware that she has been a good wife,’ as ‘he still loves her very much’ and ‘understands’ where she is coming from in their split after being married to one another for almost seven years.
According to Page Six, West was seen continuing to wear his wedding ring on Wednesday in Malibu, while Kim didn’t wear one when she was seen in her hometown of Calabasas last week.
