Kim Kardashian West Officially Files For Divorce From Kanye West! Reality TV Star Kim Kardashian West has officially filed for divorce from husband Kanye West after nearly 7 years of marriage, multiple sources have confirmed. Finally the couple is set to move in opposite directions as Kardashian vows to follow the direction of her Compass in a new direction – away from West!
Christy Welder, a representative for Kardashian West confirmed a Friday report by TMZ though she declined to give a statement. She confirmed the divorce filing but said Kardashian had no additional comment on the matter. Also, according to Variety, a court source from LA Superior Court on Friday confirmed that the divorce paperwork had been filed.
According to the filing, the reality TV Star cites irreconcilable differences as Kardashian West seeks ‘joint custody’ of their four children. A prenuptial agreement regarding the couple’s assets is also cited. TMZ reports that the couple has a prenup in place, which seeks to protect their individually owned assets prior to the marriage. This most likely includes Kanye’s Yeezy line and recordings, in addition to Kim Kardashian’s reality TV empire.
After dating for close to 3 years, Kanye and Kim tied the knot in May 2014 in Florence, Italy. Their marriage was blessed with 4 Children, daughter North, son Saint, daughter Chicago and son Psalm.
Back in January, sources close to Kim Kardashian claimed that the marriage had hit the rocks and that Kim in particular has had enough of Kanye’s “bad behavior” – political or otherwise in recent years. She therefore wants some space to figure out the future. Kim had reportedly hired famed lawyer – Laura Wasser to handle “settlement talks”
Attorney Laura represented Kim with her past 2013 divorce to NBA star Kris Humphries. Laura who also represented Angelina Jolie, can as well be referred to as the Simone Biles of divorce lawyers or the Michael Jordan of marital dissolution—there simply is no other!
Among the issues possibly fueling split rumors is the fact the couple has not been seen together for the better part of 2020 although reports showed that they planned to re-unite at the Wyoming ranch over Christmas. However Kanye West was conspicuously absent as Kim and her family gathered in Lake Tahoe to celebrate the holidays.
Back in July, during his first Presidential Campaign rally in South Carolina, Kanye tearfully divulged private information about their partnership followed by a series of twitter rants.
At the rally Kanye claimed Kim considered aborting their eldest child North, sobbing: “She had the pills in her hand. My girlfriend called me screaming, crying.
“I’m a rapper. And she said I’m pregnant. She was crying.”
On twitter, he claimed he had been trying to divorce Kim for almost two years ever since Meek Mill and Kim met at a hotel. He also made claims that his mother-in-law Kris Jenner was a white Supremacist calling her “Kris Jong-Un” – likening her to the North Korean dictator.
Kanye further claimed Kim and Kris had tried to “lock him up” and told them to “come get him” at his ranch in Wyoming.
