Kim Kardashian is reportedly considering divorcing Kanye West.

The 36-year-old is "waiting until the time is right", according to UsWeekly.

She is also reportedly trying to "build a case for full custody of the kids".

The couple have two young children together, North (3) and Saint (1).

Kim has been helping her husband Kanye recover since he suffered a mental breakdown in November.

He was hospitalised at the UCLA Medical Center for 10 days.

UsWeekly is also claiming that the rapper is not living with Kim and the children at their Bel-Air mansion.

"She cares about Kanye and feels relieved he is getting the help he needs," a source told the website.
