Tragically, there will be no Kardashian Christmas card this year.

Due to all the issues facing this famous family (from Kim’s robbery … to Kanye’s breakdown … to Rob and Chyna’s imaginary feuds), the stars simply didn’t have the time, patience or capacity to come together for a special holiday photo in 2016.

But at least Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are here …  

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian on Christmas

The allegedly troubled, on-the-brink-of-divorce celebrity couple has released a brand new picture of themselves and their two children.

Call it an unexpected, albeit watered-down, version of this Kardashian tradition, if you will – and a possible sign of hope for Kimye.

We presume the photo was taken at Kris Jenner’s Christmas Eve gathering, although Kanye did not provide many details upon sharing it.

The rapper simply wrote "Happy Holidays" as a caption and that was it. No mention (or denial) of the Kim and Kanye divorce rumors.

This speaks for itself, though, doesn’t it?

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, In Happier Times

This is the first time he and Kim have posed together since West spent nine days in the hospital in November, following some kind of mental collapse.

As you can see, both North West and Saint West are decked out in black, while Kanye rocks his ugly blonde hair that he’s been sporting of late.

Kardashian, meanwhile, shows off a lot of cleavage.

Standard operating procedure for the reality star. In other images from this Kris-hosted event, Kim is actually wearing a lip ring.

We’re not kidding. See for yourself:

Kanye and Kim have remained eerily silent ever since both of them ran into some severe personal issues over the past couple of months.

The latter as victimized by armed assailants in Paris in early October; the former seemingly victimized by his own mind a few weeks later.

Amidst this individual drama, there’s been drama surrounding both the Keeping Up with the Kardashians fixture and the rapper.

Specifically, there’s been constant talk on the Internet that they’re actually headed toward a divorce – yes, for real this time.

This may have seem inconceivable just a few months ago, but Kim’s trauma and Kanye’s response to it have supposedly driven the stars apart.

According to one recent report, the 36-year-old Kardashian has already met with a divorce lawyer to discuss her options. YIKES!

“She really thought Kanye was her soul mate and is absolutely devastated,” a source allegedly has told In Touch Weekly, adding:

“But this isn’t what Kim signed up for when she married Kanye."

"She’s done."

In addition to canceling the remainder of his Saint Pablo tour right before his hospitalization, a rep for Kanye recently confirmed that West will not be moving forward with European concerts, either.

The guy is clearly going through a lot.

And so is Kim.

It appears as if neither side can relate well to the other, and perhaps what was always a bit of a mismatch is becoming more clearly so now.

Will this Christmas family photo of the Kardashian Wests together for the holidays do anything to quiet the divorce chatter? We doubt it.

The celebrities don’t exactly look happy together, do they?

If you think about it, all it would take is a simple statement from either Kim or Kanye (or, heck, a family member) to set the record straight.

But this has not happened.

We’ve been given no reason to think a break up really could be imminent, but would that even be so stunning at this point?

Donald Trump was just elected President of the United States. Again, Donald Trump was just elected President of the United States.

Moreover, Prince, David Bowie, George Michael and Carrie Fisher all died in the past year year. T.I. and Tiny are headed for a divorce.

The way 2016 just came to a close, nothing is sacred or out of the realm of possibility. At this point, you can bring on nearly any story.

We’re likely to believe it.
