Kim Kardashian’s best friend Jonathan Cheban has weighed in on her impending split from husband Kanye West after six years of marriage, revealing he spoke to his close pal only recently.

The reality TV star filed for divorce in February this year and the pair will share custody of their four children – North, eight, Saint, five, Chicago, three and two-year-old Psalm.

Jonathan, who has regularly appeared in Keeping Up With The Kardashians, suggested he could see a break-up was on the cards.

Appearing on The Wendy Williams Show he said: ‘Everything is open on the show, they question everything. I am not surprised it really happened, I love them both.’

He added that he ‘misses’ the rapper’s ‘brilliant energy’ since they split and he ‘really likes’ both Kim and Kanye, calling the former couple ‘amazing’.

‘He is always ahead of the times, he is inspiring,’ he said of Kanye.

The reality TV star said that the mum-of-four is too busy to find love as she is busy with her family and preparing their new TV show, due to launch on Hulu.

Neither Kim or Kanye, who wed in Italy in 2014, have directly addressed the breakdown of their marriage. However in a recent episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, the star said revealed what prompted her to think about divorce.

Kim spoke about ‘waking up at 40 and realising I just want total happiness’, telling mum Kris Jenner that she was ‘figuring out how to get there.’

‘I just feel like I’ve worked so hard in life, to achieve everything that I wanted to, and I’ve lived up to my expectations and achieved 10 times more than I even thought was humanly possible,’ she said.

‘But I don’t have a life to share that with. I do, obviously, my kids and everything, but am I just gonna sit here and think, “Okay, my kids fulfill me, and I’m good?”’

Kim went on to say: ‘I never thought I was lonely. I always thought that’s totally fine. I could just have my kids. My husband moves from state to state. And I just am on this ride with him. And I was okay with that.

‘Then after turning 40 this year, I realised, “No, I don’t want a husband that lives in a completely different state to me.” I thought, “Oh my God, that’s when we’re getting along the best.” But that is sad to me and that’s not what I want.’

As Kim remains focused on being a mum, Kanye has reportedly moved on with model Irina Shayk as the pair were spotted on a trip to France for his 44th birthday.
