Chrissy Teigen is opening up about Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s divorce.
If you’re unfamiliar, Kardashian filed for divorce from West in February 2021 after nearly seven years of marriage. West then filed a response earlier this month, asking for joint legal and physical custody of their four kids: North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm.
Those close to the family, like Teigen, say Kardashian is handling the split well. “Kim is doing okay. I know Kim gave her all for everything,” the Cravings author revealed during a virtual appearance on Watch What Happens Live. “It’s honestly a shame that it didn’t work out because I saw them being a forever relationship.”
She added, “I really did, but I know she tried her best.” Before her marriage to the “All of the Lights” rapper, Kardashian was also married to Damon Thompson from 2000 to 2004 and then Kris Humphries from 2011 to 2013.
A fan dialed into WWHL to ask Chrissy Teigen about her husband John Legend’s friendship with Kanye West. “I will say I have definitely been in touch with Kim more than John has been in touch with Kanye,” she admitted. “If anyone knows Kanye, it’s that he goes off the grid and it’s hard to ever contact him.”
On January 5, news outlets, including Page Six, Us Weekly, People, E!, and TMZ, reported that the couple was getting close to divorce. They’d reportedly been living separate lives and keeping their divorce plans under wraps.
“They are keeping it low-key, but they are done,” a source told Page Six, the first outlet to report the news. “Kim has hired [divorce lawyer] Laura Wasser and they are in settlement talks.” The insider added that “Kim got Kanye to go up there [to Wyoming] so they could live separate lives and quietly get things sorted out to separate and divorce. She’s done.”
