Public speculation of potential celebrity divorces is nothing new, and the rumors of a split between Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have been steadily growing for months now. The latest report on the pair asserts West “is not doing so well” amidst the swirling rumors that the divorce is imminent.

A source connected to Kanye West confirmed to People that his emotional state is floundering because of the relentless rumor mill. The source stated,

Kanye is not doing well. He is anxious and very sad. 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.

Multiple other sources confirmed to People back in January that Kim Kardashian was planning to divorce Kanye West. In true reality television star fashion, no one has officially released a statement about a divorce. The entire Kardashian clan, in fact, has been notably silent about divorce rumors.

Even more noteworthy was the deafening silence from both Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's social media accounts on Valentine's Day last weekend. On the holiday dedicated to love, neither Kardashian nor West took the time to show a united front to the world or even bother with an obligatory “I love my spouse of the last six years” post. Heck, even Kourtney Kardashian recently made her relationship Instagram-official with drummer Travis Barker.

In fact, on the day after Valentine's, Kim Kardashian posted a pic on the beach of herself with sister Kourtney Kardashian with a caption about the "thin line between love and hate.” Was the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star just playfully joking about sibling rivalry, or alluding to her relationship with Kanye West?

At the time, Kardashian made a statement on Instagram that addressed their struggles and West’s battle with bipolar disorder. Kardashian said,

[Kanye] is a brilliant but complicated person who on top of the pressures of being an artist and a black man, who experienced the painful loss of his mother, and has to deal with the pressure and isolation that is heightened by his bi-polar disorder. Those who are close with Kanye know his heart and understand his words some times do not align with his intentions.
