We know more about the sinking of the Kardashian-West couple, whose divorce was registered on February 19th. The Sun newspaper has obtained the official request for separation, which notifies "irreconcilable differences", according to the classic formula.
But some relatives are lifting the veil on the real reasons that have taken everything away, including yet another dispute on a trivial subject, a drop of water that has broken the camel's back...
"The final battle that ended their marriage was nothing more than summer vacation plans, a relative told the British daily newspaper. What was a simple conversation about the choice of dates and places took on huge proportions and, unfortunately, degenerated into a violent confrontation.

Kim Kardashian, 40 years old, should receive a big check but would not consider asking for alimony, her juicy business, valued at 900 million, allowing her to ensure her lifestyle and that of her children.
