After Kanye West's alarming Twitter rants this week, fans are all convinced there must be trouble in paradise for him and Kim Kardashian. Not only did the rapper call out his wife and his mother-in-law, Kris Jenner, but he also claimed the 2017 movie Get Out was about him, along with the fact that he tried to get a divorce. His messages have been explosive, to say the least.

Although Kim broke silence on the tweets and defended her husband, sources say the divorce comments made by the dad-of-four weren't totally out of left field. According to People, the famous couple has been thinking this way for some time. "There has been enough communication, both in the past few days and in the weeks prior, to establish that both sides feel the marriage is over," a source says, adding that a divorce would be "a long time coming."

Kanye's recent behavior isn't the first time we've heard reports of conflict between the two. The insider also explains, "They have work to do, as parents and as a spouses who want to end this phase of their relationship. Kanye knows all of this, and everything that is happening right now is just like a horrible sideshow to what the real issues are."

This insider seems completely certain that Kim and Kanye are ready to end things, but fans can't be too sure. Though the rapper has always been a bold, big personality with opinions many disagree with, Kim has also always stood by his side. We're not convinced she's ready to leave just yet.
