Kim Kardashian allegedly 'wants a divorce' from Kanye West

Following a string of outbursts that led up to husband Kanye West's 8-day hospitalization, Kim Kardashian reportedly wants a divorce from the rapper.

According to Us Weekly's sources, Kardashian "wants a divorce" from West, and she building a case up that will help her attain sole custody of the couple's two children, North, 3, and Saint, 1.

She "doesn't want to stay married," the source continues. But "it will take some time before she can do anything" as West continued to recover from his breakdown late last month that landed him at UCLA Medical Center.

The rapper, who is currently receiving outpatient care at a rental home away from the pair's Bel Air mansion, did attend a small get together to celebrate son Saint's birthday party last weekend, but other than that, Kardashian "is being very protective and doesn't want Kanye around the kids right now."

Though her husband's hospitalization was recent, Kardashian has allegedly "felt trapped for a while" now and "doesn't want to stay married."

It's been a nightmare last few months for the couple since Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint in Paris in early October, and reports from the past few weeks have pointed to the terrifying incident as the cause of the couple's recent marriage troubles.
