Kardashian West, 40, and West, 44, shared the stage this past Thursday when she re-married the rapper during his latest listening event in Chicago for his upcoming album Donda.
The recreation of the two’s 2014 wedding was purely metaphorical and a reminder that the former couple are solely co-parents to North, 8, Saint, 5½, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 2, according to a source.
“They have come a long way since Kim filed for divorce,” a source tells PEOPLE of Kardashian West and West’s rocky relationship. “It’s taken them months to get to this point. Kim is happy that they get along and that things are amicable.”
Kardashian West filed for divorce from the rapper back in February after the two publicly suffered West’s unsuccessful presidential bid, his mental breakdown and his move away from the family.
The two were married for a total of seven years.
“The kids will always be her number one priority. She wants to have a friendly relationship with Kanye, because it benefits the kids,” says the insider.
They add, “Filing for divorce was always the most difficult decision for Kim. She only filed because they had issues that they couldn’t solve. She will always love Kanye though.”
Many believed that Thursday’s event at Chicago’s Soldier Field stadium as a sign of reconciliation, but the source stated, “Right now, she is not calling [the divorce] off though.”
Kardashian West and West’s recreated wedding at Thursday’s controversial event was intended to demonstrate “this more holistic sense of love as a healing force” not a change in their relationship status, a source informed PEOPLE on Friday.
“The thing that’s important is it’s not at all about them getting back together or something like that,” they shared.
Another source similarly told PEOPLE on Monday: “Kim and Kanye have a friendly relationship. It’s always been important to Kim to have a good relationship with Kanye. They are not getting back together though.”
The insider praised the pair for being able to remain friends for their children’s sake.
“They have come a long way. The kids are thrilled when they see Kanye. Kim wants them to have an amazing relationship with their dad, just like she did with her dad,” the source admitted.
