A few days ago, rapper and Yeezy owner Kanye West made the news again as fans were quick to notice that he is still wearing his wedding ring two months after his wife Kim Kardashian filed for divorce. A black and white photo of West was posted by his good friend DJ Khaled on Instagram when he visited the latter’s house early one morning. In the photo, West was seated with his arms stretched upwards, giving everyone a clear view of his wedding band. 

Kanye West has been married to Kardashian for seven years, and they have four children together: North, seven, Saint, five, Chicago, three, and Psalm, who will be turning two in May. Just this April, West filed his response to Kardashian’s petition asking for joint legal and physical custody of their four children. 

Despite the emotional turmoil that West and Kardashian are experiencing at the moment, a source close to the couple told People that the divorce is proceeding smoothly. 

“Kim and Kanye are getting along,” the source reveals to People. “They have both stayed true to their commitment to making the best situation for the kids. Kim is very happy that they have managed to keep things calm. She thinks Kanye is a good dad. She wants him to be able to spend as much time with the kids as he wants.”

In the same report, the source also revealed that Kardashian is happy once again and that she believes that divorcing West is the best course of action moving forward. The support of her mother, Kris Jenner, and siblings is allowing her to brave this season. Since she filed for divorce, Kardashian has been staying in the Hidden Hills mansion with her children, the same home she shared with West when they were still together. 

Sources reveal that it is highly likely that Kardashian will continue to stay in the mansion even after the divorce is completed. It was previously reported that Kanye West and Kardashian previously agreed that they do not want the children to go through stress. He is known to love his children deeply and wants to make sure that they remain happy. 

Amidst his very public divorce proceedings, Kanye West put aside his personal battles to do a good deed for his friend, the late DMX, who passed away last April 9 due to a heart attack brought about by a reported drug overdose. Balenciaga designed a custom memorial shirt for DMX that was commissioned by the Yeezy brand. In 24 hours, the stocks were sold out, and the West-initiated event generated a whopping $1 million for the family of the late rapper. 

DMX, born Earl Simmons, was 50 years old when he died. On April 24, Kanye West once again appeared in his tribute, set on the same day as his funeral. To further express his deep love for his deceased friend, West designed the elaborate stage together with his Yeezy team. The Sunday Service Choir performed on that same stage, and friends of the late actor and rapper also shared warm sentiments and their fondest memories of him on it. West, however, opted to keep a low profile throughout the tribute.
