Kim Kardashian and Kanye West may be headed for a split a report claims. The rapper is allegedly having a hard time sharing the spotlight with the reality TV star.

The couple, who has been dating for one year, recently fueled reports of a split when it was revealed that they have spent less than one month together in total since announcing Kardashian's pregnancy in January. West, 35, moved to Paris in February where has reportedly been working on a new album while Kardashian, who is seven months along in her pregnancy, has remained in Los Angeles.

"Kim and Kanye have been apart a lot in their relationship, but there is nothing that either one of them can do about it," a source close to the expectant couple told

Kardashian recently expressed her desire to marry West during an interview with Ryan Seacrest, but West reportedly does not feel the same way.

"It doesn't appear that Kanye will ever marry Kim because the more time he has spent with her, the more he recognizes they want very different things from life," the insider said.

"Kanye doesn't want to share the spotlight with his partner, and he wants to be the center of attention, period," the source went on reiterating, "[they] just want very different things out of life."

The couple was recently reunited in New York City, but the "Mercy" rapper appeared to frown in several photographs, which fueled split reports. Approximately one week later, Kardashian flew from Greece to France to spend time with West and critics again claimed they looked distant.

"He makes his records, goes on tour, and then chills. Kim is always making nightclub appearances, and other paid promotional gigs all over the world," the source said of Kardashian and West's differences.

"If a used car dealership in Fresno would pay her $200,000 to appear, she would. Kanye just wonders how much money and fame she needs," the source continued. "Kanye thinks reality shows are cheap, and doesn't want his child to be raised in front of cameras."

Kardashian is due to give birth in July. She and West have not yet publicly addressed reports of a split.
