It’s 10 years since they first began dating – and although Kim and Kanye announced their marriage split in February, insiders say the couple have fallen back in love and are calling off their divorce.

The news comes as a source claims that Kanye, 44, admitted to cheating on Kim, 41, after the birth of their second child Saint, five, by having “sex with groupies” during a tour in 2016, when he was allegedly suffering a bipolar episode.

Last week, Kim posted a snap of her listening to Kanye’s song Hurricane from his new album Donda – in which he allegedly confesses to his infidelities – and sources tell Closer the reality star was “already aware” of them.

In fact, following his fling with supermodel Irina Shayk, the sources say that, incredibly, his cheating and being apart have made the couple realise they wanted to be together. A source says, “Kim was aware of what happened, but it was back in 2016 and they had worked through it ages ago.

“What’s driven them together now though is – ironically – his relationship with Irina. Having time apart made them both realise they miss each other and how much they really mean to each other. Despite what he’s apparently done, Kim is Kanye’s rock and he has always been in love with her.

“He’s realised and accepted the mistakes he’s made, and it showed him what he really wants – Kim. He is going all- out to prove that they really can work together – serenading her, treating her to meals out and giving her gifts.

“Meanwhile, Kim hated seeing Kanye with another woman, and it really made her think about what she wants in her life too.”

The pair – who also share North, eight, Chicago, three, and Psalm, two, – have appeared closer than ever recently. Last month, they were pictured having a one-on-one lunch in Malibu without their children.

Kim also showed support for her estranged husband when she attended the listening party of his new album Donda – which broke records for hitting number one in 152 countries – and joined him on stage in a wedding dress.

During the listening party, Kanye rapped, “Time and space is a luxury, but you came here to show that you’re still in love with me” as Kim watched.

Kanye then deleted the contents of his Instagram to post just one picture, of Kim – who is the only person he follows – in her gown and veil. One fan comment read, “If turning up to see your ex in a wedding dress isn’t a sign you want him back, I don’t know what is!”

Their PDAs raised eyebrows – especially as Kanye had been dating Irina, with the pair sharing a romantic trip to Paris in June. But sources recently confirmed they’ve split, and last week Closer revealed that the rapper – whose main home is his ranch in Wyoming – had been staying with Kim and the children in LA.

Kim rose to fame in 2007 on reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians – but it was going public with her romance to Kanye in 2012 and his appearances on KUWTK, before they married in May 2014, that catapulted her into worldwide stardom and led to them becoming the ultimate celeb power couple.

They married in a lavish £6m Italian ceremony in 2014 after three years of dating. But it was clear there were issues in their marriage when last summer, during his US Presidential bid, Kanye made shocking claims about Kim, 40, and her family.

He appeared at a rally claiming Kim had considered an abortion when she discovered she was pregnant with North.

Kim and Nick Cannon dated between 2006 and 2007 but they split because the KUWTK star allegedly lied to him about her sex tape. "This was my issue. We talked about this tape… And she told me there was no tape," he said on The Howard Stern Show.
"If she might have been honest with me I might have tried to hold her down and be like 'That was before me' because she is a great girl. She's actually one of the nicest people you'll ever meet. But the fact that she lied and told me that there was no tape?"

OK so Miles almost slipped our minds tbh and that's probably because him and Kim were in a long distance relationship. Distance didn't make the heart grow fonder and they split in 2010.

If you watch KUWTK it's quite obvious why Kim and Kris didn't last – because they were completely different. Nevertheless we did see the moment they got engaged and thanks to Kris we got to see the iconic moment Kim lost her diamond earring in the ocean. The pair tied the knot in 2011 but after 72 days and crying on her reality show, they called it quits.

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian

Kim and Kanye were friends for years but following her split from Kris Humpheries they grew closer, started dating, welcomed North West and in 2014 they got married. They've also welcomed Saint, Chicago and Psalm into the world.

He then posted a series of rambling Tweets, falsely accusing Kim of having an affair and referring to her “momager” Kris as “Kris Jong-Un” in reference to the North Korean dictator.

Kim released a statement explaining Kanye’s outbursts were down to his bipolar – which causes mood swings from mania to depression – something he was diagnosed with in 2016.

She wrote on Instagram, “Anyone who has this or has a loved one who does, knows how complicated and painful it is to understand.”

Since the episode last summer, Kanye has reportedly spent most of his time at his £10m Wyoming ranch, where he’s been living this year, while Kim and the kids have been in LA. Sources said he “healed” in Wyoming, adding, “He found solace. It was a kind of therapy for him and helped create what I think is one of his best albums.”

And with that very album now breaking records and being number one around the world, sources say Kanye is in a great place, and Kim can see that.

The source adds, “Kanye is in a really good headspace at the moment. His time in Wyoming did wonders for him – he’s always said that music is his therapy, so spending time there, resting and writing, has done him a world of good.

“Kim’s being reminded of the man she fell in love with. They were always adamant they’d stay on great terms after their separation, for the sake of their children. But they are getting on really well at the moment and it’s stirred up old feelings again – so for now, the divorce is off as they work on how to go forwards as a couple again.”
