As Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s marriage continues to crumble, OK! has learned that the rapper is willing to do anything to make sure he gets custody of his kids, even if that means revealing all the secrets about his estranged wife and her notorious family, spills a well-placed source.
“Kanye has been sick of Kim’s family for a long time,” an insider exclusively tells OK!. “Can you imagine what it’s like having Kris Jenner as a mother-in-law? He knows how hard Kris fights to get what she wants, but if the family thinks he is just going to walk away from his kids without fighting back himself, they are mistaken.”
The insider stressed that “if the Kardashians are going to play dirty, they need to remember that Kanye knows everything,” adding that “no-one in the family, including Kim, makes a big decision without Kris’ blessing, but they should be careful. He’s a loose cannon with nothing to lose.”
While Kardashian and the "Gold Digger" rapper's divorce drama continues to make headlines, questions regarding the custody of their four kids have been at the forefront.
OK! previously reported that the duo's prenup agreement contains nothing in regards to a custody arrangement for their children, North, 7, Saint, 5, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 1, in case of a divorce, which is consistent with California law. Meaning that if either parent wants full custody of the kids, they are going to have to put up one hell of a fight, and the former flames could turn against each other.
“Most divorces start with parents getting 50/50 custody. But if Kim or Kanye want to spend more time with their kids, they will need to prove that it would be detrimental for the children to spend time with the other parent,” a source exclusively dished to OK!, noting that “if Kim wants full custody of the kids, she will need to fight and reveal everything about life behind closed doors with Kanye."
“Kim doesn’t have to prove she is a great mom,” the source continued; her battle now will be “to prove Kanye is a bad dad.”
OK! previously revealed that after West returned to Los Angeles from Wyoming (where he had been living) late last month, he has had zero contact with his wife. "Kanye did not return to the family home when he arrived in L.A. Instead he has been staying at a hotel and a private house," a source exclusively told OK!. "He basically returned to get his stuff, meet with lawyers and look for a new home for him and his children.”
The KKW Beauty founder and West are believed to have stopped marriage counseling last month, putting the final nail in their marriage coffin. Their split will reportedly play out on the final season of KUWTK, which will premiere March 18 on E!.
