Kim Kardashian West has had a difficult year, caring for her four children amid the pandemic and navigating her husband Kanye West's outbursts and mental health-related struggles. As divorce rumors circulate surrounding the spouses of six years, a source tells ET that the KKW Beauty founder has "considered divorcing Kanye for quite some time.""Kanye and Kim have been trying to save their marriage but it's been difficult when he acts out," the source shares. "She is focused on raising her kids and making sure they're in a safe, stable environment and has felt overwhelmed trying to take care of him too."Kanye, who has been open about his struggles with bipolar disorder in the past, has had a year of highs and lows, complete with a presidential run as well as some controversial comments he made about Kim, her family, and their children at a South Carolina rally. Following those comments in which Kanye claimed he and Kim discussed the possibility of her having an abortion while she was pregnant with their eldest child, daughter North, Kim issued a rare statement. "As many of you know, Kanye has bipolar disorder. Anyone who has this or has a loved one in their life who does, knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand," she wrote in July. "Those that understand mental illness or even compulsive behavior know that the family is powerless unless the member is a minor. People who are unaware or far removed from this experience can be judgmental and not understand that the individual themselves have to engage in the process of getting help no matter how hard family and friends try."In the May 2019 issue of Vogue, Kim shared, “For him, being on medication is not really an option, because it just changes who he is. Traveling a lot does set it off, so he doesn’t travel as much as he used to. But honestly, I never want to speak for him, because I am not in his mind."ET's source also shared that the couple has been "living separate lives for months." RELATED CONTENT:Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Are ‘Still Having Difficulties’ in Their Relationship (Source)This video is unavailable because we were unable to load a message from our sponsors.If you are using ad-blocking software, please disable it and reload the page.Embed CodeRestartKim Kardashian Talks Getting Her 'Mind and Body Right' in the New YearKim & Kanye Headed Towards Divorce: Counseling Hasn't Made 'Headway'Kim Kardashian's KKW Beauty Line Closes $200 Million Deal With Coty

Drew Barrymore should have swiped left! The 45-year-old actress opened up about her struggles with dating apps while talking with comedian Nikki Glaser on Monday's The Drew Barrymore Show. "I booked a date with one guy, finally. He stood me up at the exact time we were supposed to meet," Barrymore told Glaser. "And I was like, 'Can't you be a jerk like an hour before?' That would have been such a time saver."The mother of two tried to take her rejection with a grain of salt, saying, "I know that happens all the time." She also admitted, "I felt so stupid." Barrymore revealed that she was on the celebrity dating app, saying, "There are big, high-powered men and of course, I didn't go for any of those. I never have! I was like, oh, the comedy writer, that sounds fun."When Glaser tried to make Barrymore feel better by saying the potential suitor was just intimidated by her, she replied, "I think he's just an uncourteous person who has reasons that are completely fine to him but is going about them all the wrong way.... We've just got to face the facts. It may be personal, it may not be, but whatever. Let's not fool ourselves in the middle of all of this."Barrymore also confessed to having struggles with her body image when comparing herself to the other women on the apps. "And at the same time, I'm like, you know what, this is my body. I made two babies. I'm working with what I've got," she said. "You know what, screw it. I love these women in Victoria's Secret campaigns. I love these women on this app and I'm not going to compare myself to them."Barrymore split from ex-husband Will Kopelman in 2016 and has been candid about her reentry into the dating world on her talk show. Back in September, Barrymore joked with Jane Fonda that she might be swearing off men altogether."I'm not closed for business, but I have been exactly in that mentality for the last five years, thinking I just don't have the bandwidth... I don't know if I'm willing to open my... I just don't, can't fit it in!" she said at the time.  That same month, Barrymore told ET's Kevin Frazier that she's at a good place in life.  "Timing really is everything in life. I think I am at probably the most settled place I have been at in my life," she shared. "I am a mom, I can see things from a lot of different angles and I still have enough energy."RELATED CONTENT:Inside Drew Barrymore's Reunion With Ex-Husband Tom Green After Not Speaking for 20 Years (Exclusive)This video is unavailable because we were unable to load a message from our sponsors.If you are using ad-blocking software, please disable it and reload the page.Embed CodeRestartHow Drew Barrymore Brushed 'Off the Icicles' of Dating After 5 YearsHow Drew Barrymore and Ex-Husband Tom Green Are Keeping in TouchDrew Barrymore Tearfully Says She Took Divorce 'Really Hard'

Kristen Wiig is enjoying her life as a mother of two. The Wonder Woman 1984 star welcomed twins with her fiancé, Avi Rothman, in January, and she recently opened up about how it feels to be a mom after a long road to becoming a parent."It's the best," Wiig told ET's Rachel Smith. "I know everyone always says that, and everyone says, like, it changes how you look at the world and how you, like, see love. Now it's just, like, such a bigger thing, and all of that stuff is so true."Wiig and Rothman have been together for five years, but their attempts to have kids began three years ago and included numerous attempts at IVF, which the actress has been very open about since they welcomed their twins, via surrogate, in an effort to help comfort and inform other women going through similar struggles.For Wiig, as an actress, being a mother takes on a different significance than one might imagine."Especially being in this business, you're on your own a lot, and you make your own decisions. It can be very sort of, like, an isolated existence," Wiig explained. "Now that I have kids, it's like, 'Oh, I don't want this to be about me, I don't wanna think about me anymore.'"And with that paradigm shift, the celebrated and versatile comic actress has found a sense of tranquility that many don't necessarily associate with raising two infants."Just having these two other little beings that I get to take care of is so amazing and, even though it's hard, I feel more relaxed in a way," she shared. "I don't know why, but I had this sense of, like, calm after they were born."Wiig previously opened up about her IVF struggles and welcoming her adorable babies in an interview with InStyle in August, and she said that, while she's got two movies coming out in the coming months --Wonder Woman 1984 and Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar -- work is the last thing on her mind."Now that I have these two little ones, my mind is just not on work. Even if this global pandemic weren’t going on, I would want to be with my kids," she said. "Obviously, some days I get more sleep than others, but it is what it is. And it’s frickin’ awesome."However, Wiig is still excited about the upcoming Christmas release of Wonder Woman 1984 -- especially after how much work went into filming.In the long-awaited superhero epic, Wiig stars as Barbara Ann Minerva, aka Cheetah, a mild-mannered geologist who gains superhuman powers and transforms into one of Wonder Woman's most ferocious enemies."It was intense, because when you're not shooting, you're training or you're working with the stunt team or memorizing choreography and doing all that stuff," Wiig recalled. "So, you show up to shoot and you're, like, already tired and sore."However, getting to appear in a big, blockbuster superhero epic and act alongside Gal Gadot was a thrilling experience for Wiig, who has built her career on typically playing more comedic characters."I love superhero movies," Wiig added. "The whole experience, you're just sort of like, 'What is going on?!' And the fact that I got to do those fight scenes and train and do that stuff with her, it was a dream come true."Wonder Woman 1984 will be in theaters and streaming on HBO Max on Dec. 25.'Wonder Woman 1984': Gal Gadot Reveals What It Was Like Physically Fighting Kristen WiigThis video is unavailable because we were unable to load a message from our sponsors.If you are using ad-blocking software, please disable it and reload the page.Embed CodeRestartRELATED CONTENT:Gal Gadot and Kristen Wiig Go Behind the Scenes of 'Wonder Woman 1984'New 'Wonder Woman 1984' Trailer Reveals Kristen Wiig as The CheetahKristen Wiig on 'Isolating' IVF Struggles & Quarantining With Her KidsRose Byrne on 'Nurturing' Kristen Wiig Becoming a Mom (Exclusive)

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is getting candid about his health struggle, and the struggle faced by Black Americans due to racial inequality in the nation's health care system. The iconic NBA superstar penned a powerful editorial in which he revealed his own battle with prostate cancer, and what he learned from his experience.In his op-ed for WebMD, titled "Black Lives Matter," Abdul-Jabbar revealed that, over the course of his life, he's had "prostate cancer, leukemia, and heart bypass surgery," and explained that given his age -- 73 -- and his towering 7-foot-2-inch height, he's already more at risk than most.However, Abdul-Jabbar explains that another major factor when it comes to his health is the fact that he is Black."Black lives are at risk. Serious risk. Not just from the diabetes, heart problems, obesity, and cancer that we as a group are prone to, but from a wide spectrum of health threats built into the foundation of American society as solidly as steel girders holding up a bridge," Abdul-Jabbar writes. "Most people know this is true, though some will deny it because they fear removing those rusty girders will cause the whole bridge to collapse. The truth is that those girders are already malignant with rust and will eventually collapse if we don’t address the underlying rot of systemic racism."The basketball icon admitted that, when it came to his own health concerns, he's "been fortunate because my celebrity has brought me enough financial security to receive excellent medical attention. No one wants an NBA legend dying on their watch. Imagine the Yelp reviews."However, the vast majority are not as lucky and privileged as he.Abdul-Jabbar addressed the Black Lives Matter protests that swept across the country during the summer in the wake of shocking instances of police brutality. He went on to explain that the call for human equality wasn't just in regards to law enforcement and courts, but in every facet of American society."The backlash in which white people proclaimed All Lives Matter clearly had no understanding of the issue. Blacks weren’t saying that Black lives mattered more, they were emphasizing that, the way the system works now, Black Lives Matter … Less," Abdul-Jabbar wrote. While police brutality has been the focus of the protests, and has been a very visible point of contention to stir the protests needed for change, the hidden inequities in medicine are as dangerous and need to be changed in order to save lives on a daily basis."The more insidious and damaging threat to the health, lives, and economic well-being of Black Americans is a health care system that ignores the fact that, though they are most in need of medical services, they actually receive the lowest level,” he said.When it comes to how the nation can address this system concern, Abdul-Jabbar recalled his analogy to the bridge at risk of collapse, and explained the importance for "daily maintenance" of its structural integrity."More Black teachers, jurors, and doctors -- that’s our daily maintenance. Athletes kneeling during the national anthem, social media banning hate posts, politicians and celebrities condemning racist speech, police not profiling based on race, companies committing to financially supporting organizations fighting racism -- that’s our daily maintenance," he wrote. "And not just for the next few months until the public relations spotlight has dimmed, but until the country proves through legislation and public behavior that it actually believes in liberty and justice for all."Abdul-Jabbar concluded, "The future of equity for Black Americans starts with physical and mental health, and as long as they are at the end of the line for services, true equity can’t happen. Black lives have to matter in every aspect of American society if they are to thrive."RELATED CONTENT:'Dancing With the Stars': How Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's Height and Age Play Into 'All-Athletes' SeasonBarack Obama Expresses Pride in Daughters for Joining BLM Protests'Black Lives Matter' Featured on New NBA Finals Court Design: PICSAva DuVernay Feels ‘Blessed’ to Contribute to the Black Lives Matter Conversation With Her FilmsThis video is unavailable because we were unable to load a message from our sponsors.If you are using ad-blocking software, please disable it and reload the page.Embed CodeRestart
