Kim Kardashian files for divorce from Kanye West


Kim Kardashian West has officially filed for divorce from Kanye West.

The reality TV star filed paperwork on Friday, according to TMZ, Variety and E.

The separation has been imminent for the better part of a year, with Kardashian spending most of her time in Los Angeles and West at his ranch in Wyoming.

The pair have been married for seven years and have four children together—North, Saint, Chicago, and Saint. Kardashian is seeking a joint custody agreement in which she will chaperone the kids the majority of the time, and West is likely to agree, according to TMZ. Their marriage is subject to a prenuptial agreement that will divide their assets.

Reports of trouble in paradise began to emerge last year and escalated as West’s ill-fated presidential run saw him rage during unhinged campaign events and reveal the family’s most private affairs.

He said that Kardashian nearly decided to terminate the pregnancy that eventually resulted in the birth of North West. Kardashian later said the musician had been undergoing a serious mental health episode.

The divorce will be Kardashian’s third and West’s first. They married in 2014 in Italy.
