DJ Khaled was pretty surprised when Kanye West showed up at his door at 8 AM recently. He shared on Instagram that West wanted to listen to tracks from Khaled's album which is set to drop this week.

However, it wasn't the sneak preview of the music that drew fans to the posts. It was the fact that fellow rapper Kanye was still wearing his wedding ring, nearly three months after he and Kim Kardashian filed for divorce.

Kanye initally expressed tremendous sadness at the end of their marriage after almost seven years. Just a few months on however, a source told Page Six that Kanye has already expressed interest in dating "an artist" who better understands him.

The pair had cited "irreconcilable differences", and there were hints last year that Kanye's very public battle with mental illness and erratic behavior might be too much for Kim to handle.

Parents to daughters North (7) and Chicago (3), as well as sons Saint (5) and Psalm (1), the two have tried to keep the divorce process as amicable as possible.

Kim was also seen partying it up just days after the divorce was filed in February. Kris Jenner, head of the Kardashian clan and the powerhouse behind the twenty season reality show surrounding the family suggested that the divorce would be featured in the final season of Keeping up with the Kardashians this spring.

Because of a prenup and their individual financial success, neither Kim nor Kanye has asked for spousal support. However, Kanye did file for joint custody of the children.

If Kanye is so eager to move on, it's even more unclear why he wouldn't have removed his wedding ring, though Kim has already been without hers in public for a while.
