Kim Kardashian has had a change of heart. Though the reality star, 39, was on the verge of ending her marriage to Kanye West, 43, an OK! insider says that after embarking on a few getaways with their kids, she's decided to give it one last shot.
"Kim had been keeping tight-lipped about everything, but she recently broke her silence and told friends she's chosen to call off the divorce, not so much for her sake but for that of the kids," explains the insider. "She doesn't want to tear their family apart without knowing she gave the marriage everything she had."
According to the insider, the parents of four — North, 7, Saint, 4, Chicago, 2, and Psalm, 15 months — had been butting heads since last year. But the rapper's recent erratic behavior, which included his presidential campaign announcement, pushed Kim to her limit.
"She went to their Wyoming ranch, where Kanye was staying, and said she couldn’t live like this anymore and that it would be better for everyone if they went ahead and got a divorce," the insider claims. "He begged her not to do that; they were both in tears. He finally suggested they go away for a while with the kids —and that time together made all the difference."
It was just a few days into their trip to the Dominican Republic that the KKW Beauty founder decided to forgive and forget. In fact, the excursion went so well that they extended their family time by visiting Miami on August 9 before heading to Colorado for a glamping retreat at the Dunton River Camp with Kim's sister Kourtney, her kids and a few pals.
"All in all, their trio of five-star retreats cost $3 million or more, but it was worth it," dishes the insider. "They had a lot of issues to iron out, and the beautiful surroundings definitely helped ease the tension."
One adjustment they still have to get used to is their new living arrangement, as the Yeezy designer plans to spend more of his time in Wyoming, while Kim's comfortable in California.
"Kim wants to stay near her family, but she's agreed to spend more time at the ranch," the insider adds. "They'll be going back and forth for the rest of the year, but at least they'll all be together."
