Kim Kardashian and Kanye West 'splashed out $1million each on Christmas presents despite looming divorce'

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West reportedly splashed out $1million (£744,000) each on Christmas presents for one another despite their looming divorce. 

TMZ claim the couple went all out in their truly lavish style, with the rapper, 43, buying Kim, 40, five 2021 Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600s, ringing in at $200,000 (£147,000) each, while she bought him several James Turrell pieces. 

It has been claimed by multiple sources that their divorce is 'imminent', following a rocky year which saw them pictured in tearful 'crisis talks' after the rapper's series of explosive Twitter posts in the grips of a bipolar episode. 

Kanye and Kim, who wed in 2014 and share four children together, daughters North, seven, and Chicago, two, and sons Saint, five, and Psalm, 20 months, are known for their lavish ways, often spending extraordinary amounts of cash. 

In a touching gesture, the KUWTK star opted to give her estranged husband some pieces by 77-year-old Turrell, who Kanye has previously lauded. 

When the rapper visited Naoshima, the Tadao Ando-designed Japanese “art island”, which features three of Turrell's installations, in 2018, he stated that he wanted to live inside the light-and-space artist’s work. 

In a later interview with GQ, Kanye revealed he had been gifted a house design by the artist: '“Turrell designed an entire home and gave it to me on my birthday. I said, ‘We need to live in a Turrell.’” 

Kim meanwhile received an alleged five cars from Kanye, with the inexplicable volume of vehicles ringing up to the $1million mark.     

At Christmas, Kim was pictured without her $1.3 million engagement ring, two weeks before reports surfaced that her marriage was over.

She was without the diamond as she documented her Christmas celebrations in a slew of Instagram snaps, amid reports she's hired high-profile lawyer Laura Wasser, 52, to begin settlement talks.
