Kim Kardashian is reportedly trying to save her marriage to Kanye West. 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 Closer: "Kim's having a hard time and is worried about what might happen. She's sick of putting on an act in public and she feels like she can't keep it up."

"Kanye's been so busy that he found it hard to keep in touch while he was away. Kim thinks he's distant. He's still great with the kids, but sometimes she feels she and Kanye are worlds apart. Kim loves him and is working hard to explain how he feels, but it seems he's a closed book."

"Kim really wants to make it work with Kanye. She knows how much of a boost being with Kanye has given her so she's telling everyone their relationship is fine. She's doing everything she can to squash split rumors and she hopes the marriage can survive, but she's petrified it might be too late. There's only so long she can hide it."

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.
