It appears fans eager for a front-row seat to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s personal relationship drama might get what they’ve been hoping for after all.

To recap, when Kim and Kanye first started experiencing issues last year speculation immediately began about how much of the drama unfolding behind closed doors Kim would allow the viewers at home to see.

Sure the Kardashians have never been shy about addressing conflict within their family, but given Kim has four kids to think about there have been a lot of questions about just how much Kim would allow to featured on Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

While it was previously reported that Kris Jenner was planning on censoring Kim and Kanye’s relationship drama out of the upcoming season of KUWTK, new reports indicate Kim is looking to not only planning to allow her relationship struggles to be featured on the show but is hoping to leverage her rumored divorce for ratings.

Nothing has been confirmed, but it is telling that neither Kim nor Kanye have addressed the rumors which makes one question whether Kim is holding the revelation for the show. It’d be a strategic move that would surely bring a lot of buzz to the show’s final season while also setting the stage for the family’s next chapter with Hulu.
