After weathering a tumultuous summer, Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West are still together — though a source says they “very much live separate lives” currently.
“Kim has work and projects that are important to her, and Kanye has his,” the source tells PEOPLE. “Their lives don’t overlap much.” (A rep for Kardashian West, 40, had no comment when reached by PEOPLE, and a rep for West, 43, did not respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.)
Still, the source says “Kim seems happy” and is “very focused on work and causes.”
“She strongly believes she can make a change when it comes to prison reform,” the source says of the star, who is studying to become a lawyer and this week publicly pushed for President Donald Trump to commute the sentence of Brandon Bernard. Bernard, who was convicted of murder as a teenager in 2000, was executed by the federal government on Thursday.
“This is her passion,” the source says of Kardashian West’s justice reform advocacy. “Her family is very proud of her.”
