Kim Kardashian Files For Divorce From Kanye West
Kim Kardashian has filed for divorce from Kanye West after seven years of marriage.
According to sources, Kim is asking for joint legal and physical custody of their four children, which Kanye is said to be in agreement with. The split is apparently as amicable as divorce can be, and both plan to co-parent together, TMZ reports.
It is also reported the pair have a prenuptial agreement, which neither are contesting, it’s even said the couple are ‘far along’ in agreeing to a property settlement.
Kim and Kanye are said to have been living apart for several months, with the rapper spending time in Wyoming while Kim was in Calabasas. The pair’s differences in politics and diverging lifestyles are reported to be factors that led to the divorce.
The celebrity couple wed back in May 2014. They’ve had four children together – North, seven, Saint, four, Chicago, two, and Psalm, one – and recently, Kanye entered the 2020 presidential race.
It’s the latter event that’s been widely attributed to the collapse of their relationship, with the Jesus is King rapper’s recent comments often targeting, directly or indirectly, his wife and her past decisions.
After Kanye revelations during his presidential run, and his subsequent struggles with mental health, Kim said she was helping him with his bipolar disorder, calling him ‘brilliant but complicated’ and asking the public to be compassionate. Kim herself has been working to develop her own career in law and prison reform.
Earlier this year, a source told Page Six Kim had hired divorce attorney Laura Wasser, adding, ‘Now this divorce is happening because Kim has grown up a lot,’ while suggesting Kim had ‘had enough’ of Kanye’s antics on the failed political campaign.
TMZ reports the couple took a family holiday together last year in hopes of reconciling things, with Kim also earlier flying to Wyoming to see Kanye after his frenzied presidential campaign.
This will be Kanye’s first divorce while, following divorces from music producer Damon Thomas and basketball player Kris Humphries, it will be Kim’s third.
