  • News broke this week that Kim Kardashian had filed for divorce from Kayne West after nearly seven years of marriage.
  • Rumors have been circulating for some time now that the couple was having troubles (and that those troubles were so significant that divorce was imminent), and a source close to Kim confirmed to People that the reality star has been thinking about filing for divorce for "a long time," but that she has been "dreading it" and "really, really has done everything to avoid filing." 
  • Although she tried her best to make the marriage work, the source says Kim came to realize that, though "there is still love, they are just too different and have different visions for the future."

Kim Kardashian officially filed for divorce from Kanye West after almost seven years of marriage on Friday. The couple is said to be handling the negotiations for their divorce settlement and custody plan very quickly.

But how is Kim actually doing? Okay, apparently...according to an unnamed source, anyway.

"Kim is with her family today," a source close to the reality start told People. "She is doing okay. She is sad, but ready to move on."

Rumors that Kim and Kanye were headed for divorce have been circulating for a while now, of course, and apparently, there was at least some truth to those rumors.

The Kardashian source explained that Kim has been thinking about ending the marriage for a long time—but that she really, really didn't want to have to take that step.

"Their marriage has been broken for a long time. Kim feels like she has done everything she can to save it. Filing for divorce is something she has been thinking about for a long time. She has also been dreading it. She really, really has done everything to avoid filing," the source said. "Last year, she hoped they could somehow work things out. In the past few weeks though, it has been clear that they are done. Although, there is still love, they are just too different and have different visions for the future."

This isn't the first time we've heard these kinds of claims about Kim and Kanye's marriage, though. The People source's comments echo those of a source who spoke to Entertainment Tonight in December.

"Kim is exhausted from continually trying but keeps their vows in mind when making any pertinent decisions. And Kanye is working on his psychological health and mental state," the source explained. "The family and Kanye are still in contact and everyone wants the best for Kanye, Kim, their kids and the rest of the family."
