KIM Kardashian and Kanye West only reached a "happy medium" in their relationship by living separate lives, a pal has claimed.

The marriage crisis played out in full public view earlier this year when Kanye made a series of wild tweets about his family – including insulting his mother in law Kris Jenner – and made a failed bid to become President.

At the time Kim stood by Kanye, urging fans to treat her husband with compassion as he battled through what appears to have been the latest in a number of bipolar episode the rapper has suffered.

But behind closed doors Kim and Kanye's marriage is said to be effectively over with the couple finding a "happy medium" of living separate lives to avoid the international media attention a divorce would bring.

"Kim and Kanye are struggling to stay together as a couple and have for quite some time now,” a source told Hollywood Life. “It doesn’t seem like she’ll ever actually file for divorce, at least anytime soon. They really are living separate lives right now and have for a while."

    Footage shows Brendan Bernard apologising to the families of his victims before his execution last week. 

    Bernard’s death sentence – for the 1999 killing of young couple Todd and Stacie Bagley – was carried out following an unsuccessful campaign by Kim Kardashian and others to have it commuted to life imprisonment. 

    In video taken before the execution, he is seen saying: “I first want to tell the Bagleys that I’m sorry. My actions at that time were not reflective of who I was. 

    “I would like to tell them I have tried to be a better person since that day. I can’t imagine how they feel about losing their family and wish that we could all go back and change it. I’m sorry for all the pain that I caused.”

    Speaking after the execution, Todd’s mother, Georgia, said the remorse shown by Bernard and his accomplices had “helped very much heal my heart”, adding: “I forgive them.”
