Kanye West and Kim Kardashian
According to TMZ, 40-year-old Kim Kardashian has filed for divorce from 43-year-old Kanye West. The TV star asked for joint legal and physical custody of their four children, seven-year-old North, five-year-old Saint, three-year-old Chicago and one-year-old Psalm, and West pledged to fulfill his paternal responsibilities and, together with his wife, raise daughters and sons.
As noted by insiders, the couple has a prenuptial agreement, which neither of the parties is going to challenge.
They have already made headway in reaching an agreement to settle a property dispute,
– said the source.
In the documents filed with the court, the date of separation of the spouses is not indicated.
For the first time about the break in relations, Kim and Kanye started talking at the beginning of January, even though their marriage was very “stormy” all last year. According to insiders, Kardashian was ready to leave her husband after his many antics, but when his bipolar disorder worsened, she decided to wait until he got better.
She felt that it would be cruel to dissolve the marriage when he was not doing well,
– said the anonymous author.
Despite the peaceful divorce, the rapper is going through hard parting with his wife. He still hasn’t even taken off his wedding ring.
It’s hard for him and he’s unhappy, but Kanye has come to terms with reality,
The insider said.
He also noted that, according to West, the turning point in his marriage to Kim was his presidential campaign. Although, given his scandalous public statements last year, Kanye’s fascination with politics was the lesser of evil.
For most of last year, the couple lived separately: Kim was with the children in a mansion in Calabasas, and Kanye moved to the family ranch in Wyoming. The couple’s attempts to save the marriage were unsuccessful.
By marriage, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West tied themselves in May 2014. A surrogate mother gave birth to two youngest children to the couple. For Kanye West, this marriage was the first, and for Kim – already the third.
