According to the Sun, Kanye, 43, visited two jewellers to get quotes for the items he was considering selling.
A source told The Sun: ‘In the last two weeks, Kanye was attempting to sell jewellery he had purchased for Kim to at least two top jewellers.
‘Kanye recently said, “I don’t want to be connected to the Kardashian brand anymore” but he was so torn because he still very much loves Kim.
‘Although he never ended up selling the jewellery he was talking about how he didn’t want to be reminded of the past.’
The insider added that Kanye ‘really wanted to stay together but she was done’.
During their marriage, the rapper and billionaire fashion designer splashed out millions building Kim’s jewellery collection.
These included a $1million Lorraine Schwartz diamond necklace as her push present for North, her 15-carat engagement ring worth $3million, two Cartier bracelets and a vintage Cartier gold plaque necklace with a text from Kanye etched into it.
Kim filed for divorce from Kanye on Friday February 18, after almost seven years of marriage.
As part of the divorce filings, she is asking for joint legal and physical custody of their four young children: North, seven, Saint, five, Chicago, three, Psalm, 21 months.
Kim is worth almost $1B thanks to her makeup, fragrance and intimates lines. The rapper is worth a reported $1.3B thanks to his music, concerts, and apparel and shoe lines.
Reports say neither will contest their prenup and they are far along in their agreement over how to split property.
