Though he's been at the center of attention as he tweets up a storm over the past couple of weeks, Kanye West was a no-show at this year's Met Gala. The rapper has accompanied wife Kim Kardashian to the event in the past, but this time around, the reality star walked the red carpet solo — and sources have revealed to Life & Style that the power couple has hit a rough patch in their relationship.

After four years of marriage, the parents of North, 4, Saint, 2, and three-month-old Chicago are on the brink of a split. "Kim is in talks with lawyers about getting a divorce," a source exclusively tells Life & Style. "Kanye’s acting more unpredictable than ever. Things have gotten so bad that they sleep in separate rooms."
Though Kim was desperate to try and save their relationship, she finally had enough of the rapper's bizarre behavior. "Kim is tired of covering for him and putting out fires that he keeps creating," the insider says. "She can’t take it anymore." It doesn't help matters that Kanye has barely spent any time at home, as he's busy producing multiple albums and working on his fashion line. "She accuses Kanye of being selfish and has told pals that she’s done with her husband always putting himself first," the insider states.
Luckily for Kim, her $175 million fortune will remain safe and sound, as the twosome have a prenup. "She’s relieved to have a prenup in place.[Kanye] is known for spending money like water, and his finances have been up and down for years," the insider reveals. "With him acting up right now, she’s afraid he’ll make irrational decisions and splash out millions on anything and everything. She’s spent years building her brand and is determined to protect her assets no matter what it takes."
