ITV CAN’T replace Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain

It seems ITV is struggling to replace Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain.

The former GMB star quit the show last month (March) following a wave of backlash from viewers after his comments about Meghan Markle.

Since he left, many have wondered if the show will ever be able to find a new presenter like him.

Well, it turns out ITV has been wondering the same thing.

ITV can’t find a replacement for Piers Morgan

Boss Kevin Lygo has confessed that the network has realised there is “not a single person” who could replace Piers.

Kevin told Deadline: “Piers is a special thing. You can’t replace somebody like him. There is nobody like Piers, for good or bad.

“We have a roster of presenters. They’re all stepping up and doing a few more days than they would have done … We’ll mix and match until we feel what the right thing is to do.

“There isn’t a single person [who can replace him].”

Despite the way he quit, Kevin went on to insist that Piers’ split with GMB remains amicable and that they are on good terms with Piers.

He admitted he’s “amazed” Piers “lasted this long” because “there were some other moments where I thought, ‘Oh, here we go’”.

Kevin added the last time he signed him was “about a year-and-half ago, and I remember saying: ‘Well, we’ve had a great run haven’t we Piers?’”.

Jason Manford doesn’t agree with Piers

Comedian Jason Manford recently labelled Piers’ remarks about Meghan Markle “out of order”.

Piers had said he didn’t believe Meghan in her Oprah interview.

The Duchess of Sussex opened up about feeling suicidal during her pregnancy with Archie, but claimed she didn’t receive help from the Palace.

Jason made his comments after Piers tweeted his Mail on Sunday article in which he opened up about his GMB exit.

Comedian Jason replied: “I always think it’s a good idea to read all sides.

“I don’t agree with Piers over the Meghan thing at all, think he was out of order.”

He added: “But when he quit GMB, nobody cheered more than the politicians who no longer have anyone to ask the hard questions.”

Piers then responded: “Fair enough… I respect your right to have a different opinion to me.”

Meghan Markle’s Suits co-star D.B. Woodside warned Royal Family ‘messed with the wrong woman’

Meghan Markle’s Suits co-star D.B. Woodside has urged the Royal Family to ‘back off and apologize’ to the royal – before warning they’ve ‘messed with the wrong woman.’

The American actor, 51, who played the character Jeff Malone in the hit Netflix show that made Meghan Markle famous, branded the Duchess of Sussex, 39, ‘strong and resilient’ and asked the monarchy to apologize to her after she claimed she wasn’t offered support despite having suicidal thoughts.

‘Listen, the thing about her [Meghan] is she is strong and she is resilient,’ he said, speaking on Entertainment Tonight. ‘If they think that this kind of stuff is going to knock her off her game for very long, they picked the wrong woman to mess with.

‘She is the wrong woman to mess with, they need to back up. ‘[They need to] back off and apologize because she is not the one. She is not the one.’

The Suits actor went on to praise Meghan for speaking out against the Royal Family in the bombshell tell-all Oprah Winfrey interview.

Also discussing the time when Meghan and Prince Harry were first dating, Woodside said: ‘I did not know at that time. She kept that tight, tight, tight, tight, which I completely understand. My God. But now I think back on that time, I’m like, ‘She was dating him then!’ Like, ‘Aha.’ But that’s great.’

It comes just weeks after Prince Harry and Meghan’s tell-all Oprah Winfrey interview, where they said racism drove them out of Britain and claimed their son Archie was denied the title of prince because he is mixed-race.

During the bombshell interview, Meghan Markle also claimed that Kate Middleton left her in tears during a row over bridesmaid dresses and Prince Harry accused his father Prince Charles of refusing to take his calls when the pair moved to the US last year.

CBS presenter Gayle King since told how she had spoken to the Sussexes who told her that Harry had talked to the Duke of Cambridge and Prince of Wales after the interview.

But she said the conversations were ‘not productive’ and the Sussexes were keen for the ‘royals to intervene and tell the Press to stop with the unfair, inaccurate, false stories that definitely have a racial slant’.

Ms King, 66, who is also close friends with Oprah, failed to give any examples of the stories she was referring to, but added that Meghan had ‘documents to back up everything that she said on Oprah’s interview’.

She told CBS: ‘Well I’m not trying to break news, but I did actually call them to see how they were feeling, and it’s true, Harry has talked to his brother and he has talked to his father too.

Bombshells from the Oprah interview

– Meghan’s mental health

The Duchess of Sussex revealed she had suicidal thoughts and said: ‘I just didn’t want to be alive any more.’

She said she begged for help, and asked to go somewhere to get help, and approached one of the most senior people in the institution, but was told it would not look good.

The duchess said: ‘I said that I needed to go somewhere to get help. I said that I’ve never felt this way before and I need to go somewhere. And I was told that I couldn’t, that it wouldn’t be good for the institution.’

– Baby Sussex is a girl

Harry and Meghan revealed they are expecting a baby girl. The duke joined his wife in the second half of the interview, and told the chat show host: ‘It’s a girl.’

He said his first thought was ‘amazing’ when he discovered they were having a girl, adding: ‘Just grateful. To have any child, any one or any two, would have been amazing.

‘But to have a boy and then a girl, I mean what more can you ask for? Now we’ve got our family, we got the four of us and our two dogs.’

Asked if they were ‘done’ with two children, Harry said ‘done’ and Meghan said: ‘Two is it.’

She also confirmed the baby is due in the ‘summertime’.

– Royal family accused of racism

Meghan said, when she was pregnant with Archie, an unnamed member of the royal family raised ‘concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he’s born’.

Asked whether there were concerns that her child would be ‘too brown’ and that would be a problem, Meghan said: ‘If that is the assumption you are making, that is a pretty safe one.’

Pushed by Winfrey on who had those conversations, Meghan refused to say, adding: ‘I think that would be very damaging to them.’

She added: ‘That was relayed to me from Harry, those were conversations the family had with him, and I think it was really hard to be able to see those as compartmentalised conversations.’

– Archie’s title

Meghan suggested she and Harry wanted Archie to be a prince so he would have security and be protected.

The duchess expressed her shock at ‘the idea of our son not being safe’, and the idea of the first member of colour in this family, not being titled in the same way as other grandchildren.

Archie, who is seventh in line to the throne, is not entitled to be an HRH or a prince due to rules set out more than 100 years ago by King George V.

He will be entitled to be an HRH or a prince when the Prince of Wales accedes to the throne.

As the first born son of a duke, Archie could have become Earl of Dumbarton – one of Harry’s subsidiary titles – or have been Lord Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, instead at the time of his birth, a royal source said Harry and Meghan had decided he should a regular Master Archie Mountbatten-Windsor.

– The Prince of Wales

The Duke of Sussex said his father the Prince of Wales stopped taking his calls while Harry and Meghan were in Canada ‘because I took matters into my own hands. I needed to do this for my family’. He said Charles wanted him to put his plans in writing.

– The Queen

Harry denied that he had ‘blindsided’ his grandmother Queen with the bombshell statement about stepping down as senior royal.

The duke said he believed the report probably could have come from ‘within the institution’.

– The Duchess of Cambridge

Meghan said Kate made her cry ahead of her wedding. Reports circulated ahead of the Sussexes’ nuptials that Meghan left Kate in tears at Princess Charlotte’s bridesmaid dress fitting.

But Meghan told Winfrey the ‘reverse happened’.

Meghan said she was not sharing the information to be ‘disparaging’, but added it was ‘really important for people to understand the truth’.

‘She’s a good person,’ the duchess added.

‘The word I was given was that those conversations were not productive. But they are glad that they have at least started a conversation.

‘And I think what is still upsetting to them is the palace keep saying they want to work it out privately, but yet, they believe these false stories are coming out that are very disparaging against Meghan, still.

‘No one in the Royal Family has talked to Meghan yet, at this particular time.

‘And I think it’s frustrating for them to see that it’s a racial conversation about the Royal Family when all they wanted all along was for the royals to intervene and tell the Press to stop with the unfair, inaccurate, false stories that definitely have a racial slant.

‘And until you can acknowledge that, I think it’s going to be hard to move forward. But they both want to move forward with this and they both want healing in this family. At the end of the day, that is Harry’s family.’

The Duke of Cambridge was the first royal to personally respond to the racism allegations days after the interview aired when he spoke about mental health during a visit the School21 in east London.

At the time, he revealed that he had not spoken to his brother since it came out, but added that he ‘will do’.

It was also the first engagement for Kate since she was accused by Meghan of making her cry in the bombshell tell-all chat.

Meghan said: ‘She (Kate) was upset about something, but she owned it, and she apologised. And she brought me flowers’.

During the Oprah interview, Meghan also revealed details about their strained relationship, saying of pictures of them laughing at Wimbledon, ‘Nothing is what it looks like.’

She added that Kate being called ‘waity Katie’ in the press couldn’t compare to the alleged racism she faced.

Meghan also made allegations that she felt suicidal and turned to the palace HR for help.

The Duchess of Sussex told Oprah she ‘couldn’t be left alone’ and told her husband she ‘didn’t want to be alive anymore’ before claiming the Buckingham Palace HR department ignored her plea for help because she wasn’t a ‘paid employee’.

Describing how she considered ending her life believing it ‘was better for everyone’, Meghan said:

‘I knew that if I didn’t say it, that I would do it. I just didn’t want to be alive anymore.

‘And that was a very clear and real and frightening constant thought. I remember how he just cradled me. I said that I needed to go somewhere to get help.

‘I said that ‘I’ve never felt this way before, and I need to go somewhere’. And I was told that I couldn’t, that it wouldn’t be good for the institution’.

She said that after confiding in her husband, she was forced to go to the Royal Albert Hall for a charity event in January 2019, claiming photos from that night ‘haunt me’.

She told Oprah she later reached out to one of the best friends of Diana, Princess of Wales, because she felt unsupported by the palace.

She said: ‘When I joined that family, that was the last time I saw my passport, my driving licence, my keys – all of that gets turned over’.

Meghan said Harry had ‘saved my life’ by agreeing to move to Los Angeles.

During the broadcast, Prince Harry hinted at the extent of the alleged rift between the two brothers, claiming that their relationship was now ‘space,’ but added he hoped time would be a healer.

He went on to claim he was ‘on different paths’ to William and spoke about his brother was ‘trapped’ in the Royal Family.

Harry also said he felt ‘very let down’ by his father Prince Charles, accusing him of refusing to take his calls and and then ‘cut him off’ financially when they moved.

He said: ‘My father and brother. They’re both trapped’ and added that his mother Diana would be ‘angry and sad’ that he felt he had to leave the royal family, but ‘she saw it coming’.

Harry said: ‘All she’d ever want for us is to be happy’, adding that his wife had ‘saved me’, declaring:

‘I myself was trapped, as well. I didn’t see a way out’.

The Queen broke her silence on the interview, voicing her ‘concern’ over the issues raised, ‘particularly that of race’, although the statement added that ‘some recollections may vary’.

There has been much speculation about which member of the royal family they were accusing of racism. But during the interview the couple would not be drawn on who had deeply offended them.

Harry said: ‘That conversation, I am never going to share. At the time it was awkward, I was a bit shocked.’

GMB’s Alex Beresford reveals he has QUIT social media amid ‘relentless racist abuse’

Alex Beresford has revealed he’s quit social media amid ‘relentless racist abuse’ resulting from his on-air spat with former Good Morning Britain co-star Piers Morgan.

Morgan, 55, famously left ITV’s GMB after saying he ‘didn’t believe a word’ of Meghan Markle’s account of experiencing racism and other charges against her husband Prince Harry’s Royal Family during her bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.

And after Morgan’s last day on the show saw him storm off the set following a dramatic conformation with Beresford, 40, the weatherman has revealed that the racism he’s endured online since defending Meghan has forced him to step away.

Writing for The Telegraph, he said: ‘I haven’t announced it (like the former Arsenal player Thierry Henry did this week when he publicly quit social media, in response to anonymous racist bullying) but I have been forced to step away from Twitter and Facebook myself, because it was getting too much.’

‘I am a strong person, but I am not made of steel,’ he continued, adding that the messages he’s received are ‘very much the lived experience of racism in Britain’.

He added: ‘The harsh reality, though, is that social media is just a reflection of a bigger problem in society. These people are your co-workers, they are even a parent at the school gate.’

Last month, Piers announced he had quit GMB after Alex challenged his comments about the Duchess of Sussex, 37, and her interview with Oprah, 67.

Clash: Beresford, 40, famously clashed on-air with Piers Morgan, 55, as he defended Meghan Markle following her bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey

The outspoken GMB host left the daytime series after he insisted he ‘didn’t believe a word’ of Meghan’s account of suffering suicidal thoughts and experiencing racism at the hands of the royal family.

Piers then walked off set after a fierce debate with Alex, in which the weather presenter accused Piers of unfairly ‘trashing’ Meghan, and branded him ‘diabolical’.

When Piers walked off screen, Alex continued: ‘I’m sorry but Piers just spouts off on a regular basis and we have to sit there and listen.’

Piers, who refused to apologise, later announced his resignation and tweeted his thanks to the GMB team, praising them for their ‘hard work and dedication’ that led to them beating their main breakfast TV rival.

Bombshell: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle spoke with Oprah Winfrey last month, making shocking claims about racism and the Royal Family

And the presenter shared his own reflections on the events of that fateful week in a piece for the Mail On Sunday last weekend.

Piers called Alex ‘GMB’s occasional stand-in weatherman’ and ‘uptight’ in the telling account, adding that the presenter hasn’t messaged him since his exit unlike others on the show.

Reflecting on their now infamous encounter on GMB, which ended in Piers leaving the studio, Piers said he wasn’t going to sit there and be ‘whacked’ by one of his own team.

He wrote: ‘I don’t mind outside guests trying to make a name for themselves by whacking me like this, but I wasn’t going to sit there and take it from one of my own team, especially someone who I’ve gone out of my way to help whenever he’s asked me for advice about his career.

 Intense: Alex called Piers’ decision to leave the studio following their encounter ‘pathetic’ and ‘absolutely diabolical behaviour’

‘Realising I might say something I’d regret, I decided to leave the studio to cool down.

‘As I walked off, Alex doubled down: “This is pathetic. Absolutely diabolical behaviour. I’m sorry but Piers spouts off on a regular basis and we all have to sit here and listen. From 6.30 to 7am yesterday, it was incredibly hard to watch.

“He has the ability to come in here and talk from a position that he doesn’t fully understand…”‘

Piers continued: ‘I didn’t hear any more of his diatribe, as I was out the door and heading for my dressing room.

‘I knew it wasn’t a good look, the great snowflake-basher running away from confrontation. And on reflection, I shouldn’t have done it. But in the heat of the moment, in my rather strained state of mind, this seemed the less worse option.’

His side: Reflecting on storming out of the studio in his own account for the Mail On Sunday, Piers said he wasn’t going to sit there and be ‘whacked’ by one of his own team

Since Piers’ exit from the show he has received messages from several stars, naming Jeremy Clarkson and Bear Grylls, who have said he had a ‘right’ to say his mind.

Sharon Osbourne also voiced her support for Piers during an appearance on The Talk, though she has since parted ways with the CBS show.

It was recently claimed that Alex hopes to make it big in America after winning new fans including Oprah Winfrey after his row with Piers.

A source told The Sun that he has already been offered several big-money jobs from US TV companies, in addition to possible radio work and a book deal. 

According to the insider, Alex also told his agent Jonathan Shalit that he wants to ‘crack’ America as he doesn’t want to be resigned to the position of a weatherman or breakfast TV presenter for the rest of his life.

Amazing Spider-Man and Cruella Star Emma Stone Gives Birth to First Child

Academy Award-winning actress Emma Stone has reportedly given birth to her very first child! It was revealed earlier this year that theAmazing Spider-Man star and husband Dave McCary were expecting their first baby, though there was no word on an expected due date. While neither Stone nor McCary have publicly announced the birth of the child, TMZ is reporting that the baby has actually arrived.

According to the report, Stone gave birth to her first child back on March 13th in the Los Angeles area. There has been no word yet as to whether the baby is a boy or girl, but the couple are clearly keeping the entire birth a private, family matter.

“She seems very happy and very excited about becoming a mother — she’s constantly oohing and cooing. She looks great, she looks healthy, she’s glowing,” a source told US Weekly back in January of this year. “She’s been keeping up with friends and work lately, she’s always staying active and gets her daily exercise in.”

Stone and McCary met back in 2016 when the actress was hosting Saturday Night Live. McCary, a writer and director, was directing one of the pre-taped sketches for the new episode. The couple dated in secret for a while before going public in 2019. In December of that year, McCary shared a photo to Instagram announcing their engagement.

According to TMZ, Stone and McCary got married in a secret ceremony sometime last fall, though the exact date isn’t know. The couple obviously values their privacy and likes to keep major family news out of the public eye. Considering how famous Stone has become over the last decade or so, they seem to be doing a pretty stellar job at keeping out of the spotlight.

Congratulations to Emma Stone and Dave McCary on their new baby!

Zara Tindall gives birth to baby boy on bathroom floor – and name is touching tribute to Prince Philip

ZARA Tindall has given birth to her third child – a baby boy named Lucas Philip Tindall in a touching nod to the Duke of Edinburgh.

Husband Mike confirmed the happy news on his podcast – and revealed the Queen’s “warrior” granddaughter gave birth on the bathroom floor on Sunday.

Mike, 42, previously said he wants a boy as he has two daughters with 39-year-old Zara, six-year-old Mia Grace and two-year-old Lena Elizabeth.

Speaking on The Good, The Bad and The Rugby, he said: “Sunday got even better because a little baby boy arrived at my house! Yeah brilliant, six o’clock last night,

“We haven’t got a name yet, we’re still working on it, we always struggle with that, we’ve never picked one before they arrived.

“8lb 4oz, very bonny. Arrived very quickly, didn’t make it to hospital, on the bathroom floor!”

15

Describing the dramatic birth, Mike said he had to rush to his gym to grab a mat and place it on the floor in a case of “brace, brace, brace”.

Mike added: “The best thing about being at home, the best thing was, as soon he’s wrapped up, he’s skin on skin, straight downstairs. TV room. Golf on. This is what we’re doing.”

The rugby star also described Zara as a “warrior” – and joked he would get a vasectomy now he has his wish of a son.

He said: “I literally was like ‘Yep, snip, snip, snip.’ I’ve got a boy. I’m out. I’m out of here.”

The couple’s spokesperson also confirmed the happy news and revealed the baby – 22nd in line to the throne – is called Lucas Philip Tindall.

The name is a sweet nod to Prince Philip, who is recovering at Windsor after a long stint in hospital.

He and the Queen are “delighted” by the news and “look forward to meeting their 10th great-grandchild when circumstances allow”, Buckingham Palace said today.

They currently have ten great-grandkids after Princess Eugenie gave birth to son August in February.

The Queen and Philip are expecting an 11th with the arrival of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s second baby.

The couple have previously spoken about their torment at suffering two miscarriages.

Zara and Mike lost a baby in December 2016 after announcing the pregnancy a month before.

She later suffered another miscarriage before her daughter Lena was born in June 2018.

“I had to go through having the baby because it was so far along. I then had another miscarriage really early on,” she said in an interview in The Sunday Times.

Zara was praised for speaking about her agony before having her second child.

She said for a time “you don’t talk about it because it’s too raw”.

The mum added: “But as with everything, time’s a great healer.”

Zara and Mike met during England’s Rugby World Cup-winning campaign in Australia in 2003.

In 2010, they announced their engagement and married on July 30, 2011.

As required by the Royal Marriages Act 1772 – which has since been repealed – the Queen gave her consent to their marriage in a meeting of the Privy Council on 10 May 2011.

Their first child, daughter Mia, was born in January 2014 followed by Lena in June 2018.

The couple, who live in Gloucestershire, are famously down-to-earth.

 

 

MARKLE HER WORDS

Meg & Harry’s aide says ‘all white people rife with internalised racism’

Zara and Mike regularly shun royal events and the family have no title.

Her mum Princess Anne decided she didn’t want her children to be known as ‘prince’ and ‘princess’ – with Zara adopting the same stance for her own kids.

She has previously said she feels “lucky” as she had a more normal upbringing because of it.

Kate Garraway documentary: Star thanks fans after positive reaction

Kate Garraway has thanked fans for their “love” after her Finding Derek documentary.

The presenter‘s husband Derek Draper has been in hospital since March last year as he battles the after-effects of COVID-19.

The ITV programme documented Derek’s health battle over the last 12 months as Kate gave viewers a personal insight.

What did Kate Garraway say about reaction to the documentary?

In a message to GMB, which was read out by her co-stars Susanna Reid and Ben Shephard, Kate wanted to thank fans “for all the love”.

Susanna said: “Also we have to say, Kate has been in touch. She wants to say a huge thank you for all of the love this morning.

“There has been a huge response to Finding Derek last night, hasn’t there Ben?

“We know so many of you have been touched by her story.

“We have spoken to Kate and she will be back in tomorrow morning for Thursday’s show.”

She wants to say a huge thank you for all of the love this morning.

The presenter added: “But she says she is reading every single message and she is really grateful for the support.”

It comes after viewers praised Kate for the documentary and some defended the star after trolls made comments about her house.

Kate explained in the documentary that she was renovating her home to ensure it was perfect for Derek when he returns home.

However, some trolls criticised her house and called it ‘messy’.

Many viewers slammed the comments and took to Twitter to defend Kate.

One person said in response to a troll: “Says more about you than Kate when you watched such a heartbreaking programme and that’s what you took from it!”

Another added: “Pathetic! Absolutely pathetic!”

A third wrote in reply to another troll: “Where do you think she gets the time considering she’s under considerable stress?!”

Viewers shower Kate with love

Despite the trolls, Kate received an outpouring of love as the show aired.

Many praised Kate’s “remarkable” strength and branded her an “inspiration”.

One said: “Wow Kate Garraway is quite remarkable… in awe of her strength.”

Another gushed: “@kategarraway What an extraordinarily strong person you are! Just watched #FindingDerek and my god – you and your family are an absolute inspiration. Stay strong.”

Kim Kardashian constructs ‘Lil Hidden Hills’ in backyard of her sprawling Calabasas mansion

Kim Kardashian is building a miniature version of Hidden Hills for the little ones in her life on a patch of land at her sprawling Calabasas residence.

‘Lil Hidden Hills,’ which is plastered on a welcome arch at the town’s entrance, features a myriad of shops and play stations, including a KKW Beauty storefront and a Lego castle.

Though Kardashian has yet to reveal the reason behind the ambitious project, it may be in anticipation of the upcoming Easter holiday.

Lil Hidden Hills: Kim Kardashian is building a miniature version of Hidden Hills for the little ones in her life on a patch of land at her sprawling Calabasas residence.

All in the details: ‘Lil Hidden Hills,’ which is plastered on a welcome arch at the town’s entrance, features myriad of shops and play stations, including a KKW Beauty storefront and a Lego castle.

She may be trying to make this year’s celebration a special one due to her divorce from husband and the father of her children, Kanye West, which was confirmed by DailyMail.com last month.

West has used Easter as an opportunity to host his elaborate Sunday Services, which often include several celebrity cameos, dance numbers, and lots of singing.

Although he is not currently living with Kim at the Calabasas abode they purchased together in 2017, an arrangement of pews just beyond Lil Hidden Hills appeared to be being set-up.

Besides touting her own brand or bringing Lego creations to life, the 40-year-old KUWTK star also made sure Lil Hidden Hills featured a number of other storefronts and things for her kids – and endless nieces and nephews – to explore.

Another noteworthy structure, located directly next to the KKW Beauty is a pale blue retro-style diner featuring a bright red sign with ‘West Diner’ written on it in bold font.

There is also a darling fire station, which Kim and her younger sister Khloe have featured on their Instagram Stories in recent months.

The ultra colorful Lego castle comes complete with two royal blue slides and two defensive towers for the kids to climb up to and peer down on their pals.

The right side of the linear town provides the Kardashian-Jenner clan with plenty of opportunities to play house, including a sweet flower shop, grocery store, and a two-story cottage-style abode.

Wedged among the homey vibes is a confectionary castle dominated by bright pink paint and roofs made resemble sprinkle topped cupcakes.

Always seeing the importance of details, Kim also included an ATM machine, Starbucks walk-up, and a faux guard tower to screen incoming guests to Lil Hidden Hills in her child-friendly creation.

There were a ton of vehicles parked at the Kardashian-West compound on Tuesday, including several work trucks and chrome luxury car.

Some crew members were spotted amid Kanye’s outdoor pews as construction remained underway on its outskirts.

Despite working hard to make the divorce as easy on her kids as possible, Kim is having a tough time amid her divorce from Kanye who she married in 2014.

Kim’s mother Kris Jenner addressed the end of the marriage with daughter Kourtney, 41, during the season premiere of Keeping Up With The Kardashians on Thursday.

Relaxing at their sprawling Malibu summer rental, she said: ‘I know she doesn’t want to talk about it on camera, but I just feel like she’s struggling a bit’.

Home stage: West has often used Easter as an opportunity to host his elaborate Sunday Services, which often include several celebrity cameos, dance numbers, and lots of singing

Kourtney insisted her sister Kim ‘can’t possibly navigate this on her own,’ as the star prepares to co-parent their four kids, North, seven, Saint, five, Chicago, three, and Psalm, 22 months, while hashing out custody arrangements in court.

Kim last month filed for divorce from the rapper following a six-year-plus marriage, asking for joint custody of the kids.

It was later reported that the couple are only only communicating through security after Kanye changed his number in his cut-off of Kim, with Page Six reporting: ‘Even before Kim filed for divorce, Kanye changed his numbers and said, “You can contact me through my security.”

‘Despite this, Kim trusts him around the kids. He loves them and is seeing a lot of them.’

A source had said: ‘He still wants to play a huge role in their lives and Kim would never discourage that… He is no longer living at the house with Kim and the kids. When he sees the kids, he meets them elsewhere.’

It was also reported the couple were in no rush to legally terminate their marriage, but had separated in private.

The insider added: ‘Kim already feels like she is divorced. They are at a standstill currently and neither of them are pushing [to make the split official]. At this point in time, there is no rush for the paperwork to be finalized.’

The documents reveal she has requested to terminate spousal support and references a prenup Kim and Kanye have in place when it comes to property.
