Six months after filing for divorce, a source says the reality star may be having second thoughts about ending her marriage to the rapper.
Kardashian, 40, set tongues wagging on Aug. 26, when she waltzed through Chicago’s Soldier Field stadium at a listening event for her soon-to-be-ex hubby’s new album, Donda. The high-profile couple also appeared to recreate their 2014 nuptials at the Aug. 26 event, with the reality star wearing a gorgeous Balenciaga wedding gown.
This comes after OK! reported other curious updates to the couple’s ongoing split, including the “Stronger” rapper still wearing his wedding ring and the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star’s decision not to change her last name.
A source previously told E! News that the KKW Beauty founder will remain a “West” for the benefit of their kids: “They are always going to be a family and family unit. She feels like it’s in the kids’ best interest to all have the same last name.”
Meanwhile, the Grammy winner, 44, “was dead set on Kim playing a big role in his album release, and it didn’t take much persuading to get her on board,” the source spills, noting that it was the third event she attended to support her ex.
“It’s not just because he sees her as his muse,” continues the source. “It’s obvious he’s trying to get Kim to [reconcile].”
While the Skims founder seemed ready to play hardball when she hired powerhouse divorce attorney Laura Wasser last spring, “the fact is, she’s torn about this,” states the source, noting that Kim doesn’t want to tear apart their family. The estranged couple share kids North, 8, Saint, 5, Chicago, 3, and Psalm 2.
“She wants more than anything to maintain a loving and close relationship with Kanye for their sake,” adds the source. “Kanye’s using that as leverage. Plus, he’s pouring on the charm and making her feel like a bona fide princess.”
That has friends and family worried that Kim could cave and take back the charismatic but troubled rapper.
“Kim still loves Kanye,” dishes the source. “But as good as his intentions may be, he remains as erratic and unpredictable as ever.”
