Kim Kardashian ‘files for divorce’ from Kanye West as she seeks ‘joint’ custody of their four kids


Kim Kardashian has reportedly filed for divorce from her husband Kanye West after months of rumours that the two were splitting.

The 40-year-old TV star filed documents on Friday, according to TMZ, through her lawyer Laura Wasser but the date of separation was not listed.

The reality TV star and makeup guru is asking for joint legal and physical custody of their four young children: North, seven, Saint, five, Chicago, three, Psalm, 21 months. 

Kim and Kanye wed in May 2014 in Italy after they had already welcomed their eldest daughter North. 

This will be Kim’s third divorce as she was wed to Damon Thomas from 2000 until 2004 and she was married to Kris Humphries from 2011 until 2013.

DailyMail.com has not yet heard back from Kim’s rep regarding a comment.

An insider told the site that Kanye ‘is fine with the joint custody arrangement.’

He and Kim have already discussed co-parenting, it was added. The children have been seen mostly with Kim in Hidden Hills, California, in the past few months.

She has been very active about showing the kids on social media, with her last post being placed on Thursday which showed Psalm in a Yeezy T-shirt. 

Kanye has not been pictured with the kids since the fall; it is believed Kim and Kanye split in October after her 40th birthday party.

The site added that there is a prenup and ‘neither party is contesting it.’

Kim is worth almost $1B thanks to her makeup, fragrance and intimates lines. The rapper is worth a reported $1.3B thanks to his music, concerts, and apparel and shoe lines.

And it was added that the stars are in the advanced stages of sorting their property agreement.

Their main house is a $60M mansion in Hidden Hills; West has been staying at their Wyoming ranch.

It looks as if the beauty has already moved on. 

Kim has been sharing several sexy images this year: not only has she posed in bikinis while on vacation but she also been photographed in lingerie for her new limited editions SKIMS line.

The TV veteran seems to be showing West what he is missing as the two have reportedly not been together since her 40th birthday party in late October that was held at The Brando resort in Polynesia.

And she has reportedly not been wearing her wedding band from West since November 2020, though she has flashed it in photo shoots.

The Selfish author is said to have very little contact with her 43-year-old rapper.

There have been many reports that the two were over. 

An insider told People over the weekend: ‘Kim is great. She has a Valentine’s Day celebration planned with her kids and family. She likes to make it special for the kids. She doesn’t have any contact with Kanye.

‘It’s obvious that she is just focused on the future.’

It was recently claimed that Kanye is ‘less than thrilled’ that his alleged divorce from the reality TV star will be broadcast on TV.

The trainee lawyer will reportedly discuss the end of her marriage on the last series of the family’s E! reality show and the Bound 2 star is not impressed.

A source said last month: ‘He is less than thrilled. She will continue to focus on her business empire. Kim has been in individual counselling and is at peace with where her life is headed.’

Kim and Kanye had been in marriage counselling as they ‘tried to work through things’.

A source said of their counselling sessions: ‘Divorce has been discussed, but Kim wants more than anything for their relationship to work. There wasn’t anything specific that happened that led them to this point … They are 100 percent aligned when it comes to the kids.’

A source previously claimed Kim has accepted she and Kanye are just ‘not on the same page’ anymore and she is focusing her energy on her future.

The insider claimed: ‘They are just not on the same page when it comes to their future as a family. And Kim is okay with it.’

‘Kim knows what she wants to do with her life. She wants to keep living in LA, create the best life for the kids and focus on her work passions.’  

Meanwhile, Kim recently sold 20 per cent of KKW Beauty to Coty Inc for a whopping $200 million.

The businesswoman – who launched the brand in 2017 – and the beauty giant finalised the major deal last month.

Kim said in a statement: ‘I’m so proud of how the KKW brand has grown over the past four years, and I look forward to working with Coty for the next phase of innovation, advancement, and the ability to bring new launches to customers all around the world. This relationship will allow me to lead the development of the creative elements that I specialise in, while benefiting from the incredible resources of an established company like Coty.’

The star is working on a skincare line for 2022 and is also expanding to other areas of beauty such as hair and nails.
