Why Kanye West Is Now Allegedly 'Annoyed' About Kim K. Being The One To File For Divorce

Kanye West in Keeping Up with the Kardashians

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are preparing to enter new phases of their lives, as the celebrity power couple is currently in the middle of a divorce. Though neither of them has made an official statement on the matter, various reports have surfaced since Kardashian initially filed back in February. The situation appears to be pretty drama-free so far, as the two seem to want to get things done in a professional manner. However, a new report now suggests that West is “annoyed” about the fact that his soon-to-be-ex-wife was the one to file.

Kanye West is allegedly unhappy with the way his and Kim Kardashian’s divorce has been presented. A source told Page Six that “he’s super annoyed that the story is being constantly presented as her divorcing him.” The source made note of the Kardashian-Jenner family’s “huge spin machine,” which appears to imply that the family has taken steps to put emphasis on Kardashian’s side of the situation.

Ahead of their divorce, it was reported that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian were doing what they could to make their marriage work, which even included seeing a marriage counselor. Reports also claimed that Kardashian was putting in a considerable amount of effort to salvage the relationship. With this, the source also alleges that West was the one who was looking ahead to divorce:

Actually it was him saying for a year that they have nothing in common except the kids and he wanted out. She pulled all the stops to try to save the marriage.

The source also claims it wasn’t a coincidence that Kim Kardashian was the one to file for divorce. They go on to assert that Kanye West let her “file first in order to give her dignity.”

In her original divorce petition, Kim Kardashian reportedly asked for joint legal and physical custody of the couple’s four children. West, in his response, also asked for joint legal and physical custody of the kids and also reportedly asked for the termination of the court’s ability to award spousal support and attorney’s fees to either party.

Aside from the legal proceedings, it appears that both Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are continuing to explore the “new norm” they’re now faced with. This includes co-parenting their children in a new way but, on the surface, this method comes off as a bit awkward.

It remains to be seen just how long it will take for the divorce to be finalized. As we’ve seen in the past, some can be relatively smooth, while others can drag on for a while. But despite Kanye West’s alleged feelings, it would seem that his divorce with Kim Kardashian is moving along effectively. CinemaBlend will be sure to keep you posted on more updates as they arrive.
