American rapper, Kanye West, has disclosed an idea as to why his marriage to reality TV star, Kim-Kardashian has ended.
On Friday, news broke that West’s wife, reality star Kim Kardashian, had filed for divorce after nearly six years of marriage.
While previous reports indicated that there were a handful of factors that led to their split like property, lifestyle and politics were also mentioned.
West, 43, famously threw his name in the ring during the 2020 presidential election, only securing his name on the ballot in 12 states.
He conceded the longshot election before the race between Donald Trump and Joe Biden was called.
Following the news of the divorce filing, West has been “texting people” and “talking things through,” an insider told People magazine.
“He’s in that place of ‘if only,’” the source said. “‘If only I had done this, if only I hadn’t done that.’ He’s processing things.”
Additionally, the source claimed that the hip-hop star “thinks that the Presidential run was the straw that broke the camel’s back.”
“Before that, there was hope. After that, none,” the insider further claimed. “It cost him his marriage.”
In fact, a source previously told Page Six that the campaign was the “final straw” for Kardashian while another source said that she had opposed the idea from the beginning.
People magazine also learned from a source that while West “isn’t happy” with the divorce, he’s “resigned to reality.”
“He knew it was coming, but that doesn’t make it any easier,” said the insider. “This is a sombre day for him.”
The divorce is as “amicable as possible,” said the source, noting that “amicable doesn’t mean joyful or ideal.”
West and Kardashian, 40, are “being adults” about the split. The source also revealed that the rapper is “seeing counsellors and advisors to help him through this spot.”
The information comes not long after a report surfaced that West was “not doing well” ahead of the divorce filing.
“He is anxious and very sad,” another insider told People. “He knows that the marriage is over, and there’s nothing that can be done right now.”
“He also knows what he is losing in Kim.”
The source also said that the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star has “defended [West] privately to her family” and “stood beside him at a time where a few wives would have done that.”
“He is very aware that she has been a good wife. He still loves her very much. But he understands,” said the source, who explained that Kardashian feels “she can’t be married to him anymore.”
Reps for Kardashian and West did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
