It has been a full year since rumors about Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s breakup after six years of marriage began to circulate in January 2022, with the Skims founder filing initial divorce paperwork a month later in February 2021. West and Kardashian have both been romantically linked with other people since then. Kardashian has recently been linked to Saturday Night Live actor Pete Davidson, while West has been busy with a number of women.
It’s understandable that two adults going through a difficult divorce seek solace and new love in others, but while Kardashian is adamant about moving forward with the divorce, West has expressed interest in mending their broken relationship and keeping their marriage together. West has made no secret of his feelings for her, even moving in next door to her. West, on the other hand, appears to be sending mixed signals by dating other women while publicly declaring his love for Kardashian.
