Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are getting divorced — or at least that's according to reports.

Page Six has published a story reporting that the couple are ending their marriage of seven years. According to the publication, multiple sources have stated "divorce is imminent" for the couple, with Kardashian apparently already hiring star divorce lawyer Laura Wasser.

"They are keeping it low-key but they are done," a source told Page Six. "Kim has hired Laura Wasser and they are in settlement talks."

The publication also reports the source as saying, "Kim got Kanye to go up there [Wyoming] so they could live separate lives and quietly get things sorted out to separate and divorce. She's done."

Tensions between the couple have been bubbling for ages, especially due to Kanye's mental health issues. According to the report, though, she's now set to make a clean break from it all.

"Now this divorce is happening because Kim has grown up a lot," the source explained. "She is serious about taking the bar exam and becoming a lawyer, she is serious about her prison reform campaign. Meanwhile Kanye is talking about running for president and saying other crazy shit, and she's just had enough of it."

UPDATE (1/6, 12:20 p.m. ET): PEOPLE has now published another report stating the divorce is indeed imminent, according to multiple sources. One of those sources reportedly close to Kanye stated, "He knows that she's done. She has had enough, and she told him that she wants some space to figure out her future." The source added: "He's okay. He's sad, but okay. He knows the inevitable will happen, and he knows that it's coming soon."

So far, no official announcement has been made of any divorce, so stay tuned.
