The move came after weeks of speculation suggesting a divorce was in the works and Kim was simply trying to find the right time to proceed with making it official.

In fact, the hope seems to have faded away several months before their relationship became so bad divorce emerged as the best possible option.
Kanye West blames his Presidential run for ruining his marriage
According to a new report from PEOPLE, Kanye believes it was his decision to run for president in 2020 that was the true turning point in his relationship with Kim — the moment in which any hope of mending their relationship dissolved and reached its point of no return.
“He thinks that the Presidential run was the straw that broke the camel’s back,” a source revealed. “Before that, there was hope. After that, none. It cost him his marriage.”
