Kim Kardashian West and her rapper husband Kanye are rumoured to be in the midst of finalising their divorce, but they have not yet publicly confirmed their split.
Now a source close to Kim, 40, has claimed the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star is keen for Kanye to continue to have a relationship with their four young kids, North, seven, Saint, five, Chicago, three, and one year old Psalm.
A source told E! News: “He still wants to play a huge role in their lives and Kim would never discourage that.
“He is no longer living at the house with Kim and the kids. When he sees the kids, he meets them elsewhere.”

They also claimed the pair, who reportedly quit marriage counselling, are in no rush to officially end their marriage because they are effectively split from each other now anyway.
They said Kim “already feels like she is divorced”.
The source added: “They are at a standstill currently and neither of them are pushing [to make the split official]. At this point in time, there is no rush for the paperwork to be finalised.”
Kim, who recently shocked fans with underwear snaps taken in her bathroom that appeared bigger than their house, was recently seen breaking down in tears in the trailer for the finale of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, which aired last month.
Fans have been speculating that she could open up about her rumoured divorce from Kanye, 43, in the reality show.
Kim can be seen sobbing several times in the trailer, including wiping away tears whilst talking on her phone.
The star shared the trailer on her Instagram and revealed the show’s final season will premiere on E! on March 21.
She wrote with her post: “I wouldn’t leave you without some seriously ugly cry faces on our final 20th season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.”
