"Kim got Kanye to go up there so they could live separate lives and quietly get things sorted out to separate and divorce. She’s done," a source revealed.

It's speculated that Kim and Kanye have spent the majority of their lives apart over in recent months working on their own careers separately.

Despite the claims, there has been no official confirmation about the break down of the marriage from either Kim or Kanye and it's unlikely we'll get to see it played out on TV if the pair end up splitting for good.

It was confirmed last year that the final season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians will air in 2021 after 13 years of filming the world's most well-known family's life.
