Kim Kardashian and Kanye West sparked rumors of a reconciliation after the divorcing couple was spotted having dinner together this week.
West and Kardashian were seen at Nobu Malibu last Friday, according to Page Six. They were dining with Tracy Romulus, chief marketing officer at Kardashian’s makeup brand KKW Beauty. After the meal was over, Kardashian left in a car driven by the DONDA rapper.

Kardashian filed for divorce from West in February after seven years of marriage. The petition blamed “irreconcilable differences” for their breakup. The couple has four children together: North, 8, Saint, 5, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 2.
Kardashian’s side of the divorce proceedings was documented on the final season of Keeping Up with The Kardashians, reported Buzzfeed. She complained about the distance in her marriage during a conversation with momager Kris Jenner.
“After turning 40 this year, I realized like, ‘No, I don’t want a husband that lives in a completely different state,’” Kardashian said. “To me, I thought, ‘Oh, my God, that’s when we’re getting along the best,’ but then that is sad to me, and that’s not what I want. I want someone that we have the same shows in common. I want someone who wants to work out with me.”
West shared his perspective in his music. As Sis2Sis previously reported, he rapped about cheating on Kardashian in “Hurricane,” a track from his latest album DONDA. Despite the divorce, the couple has continued to collaborate.
Kardashian appeared at a DONDA listening party in a wedding dress to reenact her wedding to West. He is also helping with her business ventures. A source told Us Weekly West “is still styling Kim.”
“They have a more of a friendship and working relationship as they co-parent. They’re not back together,” the source added. The person said Kardashian “will be involved with Kanye’s work ventures, and he will be involved with hers.”
Their relationship is entirely platonic, but a different source believes West is still carrying a torch for the SKIMS founder, but she is “hesitant.”
“Kanye wants to get back with Kim,” the insider told Us Weekly.
“[Kanye] sees the two of them together and wants to make that a reality now,” the source added. “He has been trying to get back in her good graces again, and it seems to be working.”
