Kim Kardashian filed documents to become legally single because she was embarrassed by Kanye West’s recent actions, a Page Six source told.
The rapper (who now goes to Ye) has been publicly begging Kardashian to come back — all while his new model girlfriend, Vinetria, continues to stay at his Malibu home.
“Kim is making a statement by doubling down as being single,” a source told Page Six. “She thinks it’s weird that Kanye keeps saying he wants her back, but all the time he’s got [22-year-old] Model at his Malibu home.”
If a judge approves the papers, which were filed in Los Angeles last Friday, Kardashian, 41, will be considered “legally single” while she and West, 44, continue to work on child custody and the terms of their ongoing divorce.
Kim – who filed for divorce in February – is also looking to get her maiden name back and officially drop the “Western” moniker she currently shares with the rappers and their three children: North, 8, Saint, 6, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 2.
Just last Thursday, West begged the Kardashians to “run” to him during the Free Larry Hoover Benefit Concert, co-chaired by Drake, at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.
“I want you to come right back to me, more specifically Kimberly,” Yeezy founder ad libb said while performing his hit song “Runaway.”
However, given Kardashian’s new court filing — and the fact that she’s been dating “Saturday Night Live” star Pete Davidson since November — the Skims founder doesn’t seem too keen on the idea of reconciling with West.
Page Six also exclusively revealed last month that West and Venetria were dating.
We reported at the time that they had been “connecting” for a while, but their relationship seemed to have taken a more serious turn. They attended their first public event together, Dunda Academy’s first basketball game in Minneapolis, on November 6.
Plus, the model – the new face of Pat McGrath Labs – posted photos to Instagram last week that appear to have been taken on the balcony of the Malibu Palace on the waterfront in the west.
According to our source, the Kardashians still want to keep things “nice” between her and West, for the sake of their children.
A representative for Kardashian declined to comment.
