KIM Kardashian is meeting with divorce lawyers after her husband Kanye West’s wild Twitter rants, sources have claimed.
In the last few days the rapper has accused mother-in-law Kris Jenner of being a “white supremacist” and claimed he’s been trying to divorce Kim for almost TWO YEARS.
A source told Us Weekly: “Kim has been meeting with lawyers to explore and talk about divorce.”
It’s thought she could seek the help of her lawyer friend Laura Wasser who represented her in her divorce from Kris Humphries in 2013.
Another source further explained that the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has “wanted to make it work” because of couple’s four children.
Earlier today Kim broke her silence to ask for “compassion” during Kanye’s “painful” bipolar battle while admitting she is “powerless”.
Kanye took to Twitter on Wednesday morning to claim he’s been trying to get a divorce from Kim after she met with rapper Meek Mill in a hotel two years ago.
On his Twitter page this morning, Kanye wrote: “They tried to fly in with 2 doctors to 51/50 me.
“I been trying to get divorced since Kim met with Meek at the Waldorf for ‘prison reform.
“I got 200 more to go. This my lady tweet of the night … Kris Jong-Un. Lil Baby my favorite rapper but won’t do a song wit me.”
Kanye appeared to be referring to the time Kim and Nicki Minaj’s ex Meek Mill teamed up to speak at the inaugural Criminal Justice Reform Summit in Los Angeles in November 2018.
He added: “Meek is my man and was respectful. That’s my dog. Kim was out of line. I’m worth 5 billion dollars and more than that through Christ. But ya’ll ain’t listen to MJ and now ya’ll believe them???”
The possibility of a divorce comes just one day after sources told The Sun that Kim was planning an intervention for her husband of six years to get him the help he needs for his bipolar disorder.
An insider noted: “Kanye needs medical help.
“His friends know he’s had a hard time managing his medications in the past but this time things are very different.
“His behavior and his harmful statements have taken this situation to a whole new level of scary for Kim.”
The source added Kim has her back against the wall when it comes to her husband.
“She wants to help him by getting him the right doctor but Kanye isn’t willing to accept any help,” the source told The Sun.
The informant continued: “An intervention is the next step.
“Those closest to Kim and Kanye have joined together and discussed ways to approach him.
“They know it’s time for an intervention but making that happen peacefully will be a huge challenge.
“Kim has put up with many of Kanye’s ups and downs but this is different.
“In her eyes the bizarre lies about North are unforgivable and their closest friends worry this was the final straw.”
Meanwhile, comedian Dave Chapelle made a trip to Wyoming on Tuesday to check up on the rapper.
If the intervention doesn’t work and Kanye continues down this path, Beverly Hills family law attorney Adam Michael Sacks says Kim could get Kanye committed involuntarily within a day if he meets certain legal criteria and she convinces a judge it’s an emergency.
The lawyer told The Sun: “She could tell the court that her husband is a danger to himself.
“She would have to go before a judge and get a court order.
“If she stresses it’s an emergency, she could get the order right away.”
Though Kanye is currently hunkered down at the family’s Wyoming ranch, Kim could still force him to get treatment in California, Sacks claimed.
“She could get the order in California, then take him home.”
If under an involuntary psychiatric hold, Kanye would be observed by professionals for three days. Then, Kim could possibly extend the treatment.
Sacks said: “It’s a very drastic thing to do, but sometimes, it ends up saving a person’s life.”
Concerns for Kanye’s wellbeing were raised after he claimed Kim “tried to bring a doctor to lock me up”.
The accusations came after a presidential rally in South Carolina at the weekend in which he broke down in tears and alleged Kim considered aborting their eldest daughter, North, in 2013.
Kanye then shared a string of tweets in which he claimed his mother-in-law Kris Jenner was “not allowed” to spend time with his four children.
He also criticized her parenting for allowing Kim and Kylie to pose for Playboy magazine.
The 43-year-old also claimed that his life was like the 2017 horror film Get Out, in which a black man is tormented by his white girlfriend’s family.
Sources close to the Kardashians, however, had previously claimed that Kim “doesn’t know how much more she can take” of “public embarrassment” and called for him to drop out of the 2020 Presidential race or be faced with divorce, after he claimed they almost aborted their daughter.
The rapper’s behavior in recent weeks has caused concern that he is in the midst of a manic episode caused by his bipolar disorder.
