"Kim has felt Kanye is not willing to do the hard work and compromise."

A source explained to The Sun: "Kim had visited the idea of divorce so many times that she already had the paperwork drawn-up and ready to go, when she finally actually filed.

"The move came as a bit of a surprise to her family because they know how much she loves Kanye and knew she didn't really want to go through with it. They all knew she felt she had no choice.

"Some closest to the family feel this isn't Kim definitely calling it quits, this is more a strategic move to make Kanye wake-up and see that he could lose her if she doesn't change."
