Kim Kardashian and Kanye West split reports do not seem to die down. A magazine has come up with claims that the couple, who got married in Florence, Italy, on 24 May 2014, could be preparing to divorce soon.

A source told Heat magazine: "Right now, things are very tough for their marriage."

"We're all concerned that this could be a sign their marriage is on the rocks and that they want time apart," the insider added. "Kanye is in a very odd place in his life right now, so he's happy to take a break. Kim convinced him that this was the best solution for him, as it would allow him to take time out of the spotlight."

"I think she's enjoying the freedom to do what she wants, knowing Kanye's out of the city and has a good crew around him," the source shared.

The couple allegedly distanced after the reality star's Paris robbery, and the Gold Digger hitmaker was checked into UCLA Medical Center for psychiatric evaluation in Los Angeles on 21 November 2016.

The 36-year-old reality star, who has daughter North West and son Saint West with Kanye, has a history of failed marriages. In 2000, Kardashian eloped to Las Vegas and married Damon Thomas, when she was just 19. They split three years later. In August 2011, Kardashian married NBA star Kris Humphries after just six months of dating. But the couple parted ways in 72 days.
