After months of speculation, Kim Kardashian officially filed for divorce from Kanye West after six years of marriage on Feb. 19. While the 40-year-old reality TV star nor the 43-year-old rapper have yet to publicly confirm the news themselves, many fans seem to be wondering: what went wrong? Over the past decade, we've witnessed Kim and Kanye's journey as a couple to parents to their four beautiful children - North, 7, Saint, 5, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 1 - but it looks like their time together has come to an end.

According to E! News, the pair simply just "grew apart." A source added, "She tried to give it a chance. She wanted to do this last year. She gave it plenty of time, but it's just time to move on. There were no affairs. No one did anything bad."

A separate source told People that Kanye reportedly believes his recent presidential run was "the straw that broke the camel's back." "Before that, there was hope. After that, none. It cost him his marriage," the insider explained.

Kim and Kanye first got together in the spring of 2012 before getting engaged a year later during Kim's 33rd birthday celebration at San Francisco's AT&T Park. In May 2014, they made things official by tying the knot in an over-the-top wedding in Italy. The pair's split is reportedly "amicable" and Kim is asking for joint legal and physical custody of their kids, which Kanye is apparently on board with.
