Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are officially divorced. The reality star and the rapper have finalized their divorce, with the exes coming to an agreement about child custody and property. According to divorce documents, the former couple will have joint physical and legal custody of their four children, North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm.
Moreover, the Grammy winner will be required to pay Kim Kardashian $200,000 a month in child support. West will also be responsible for half of the children’s medical, educational, and security expenses. Both Kardashian and West waived spousal support. The divorced couple also agreed to settle disputes regarding the children by participating in mediation, as reported by People. However, if either party fails to take part, the other is allowed to make the decision in a dispute by default.
The couple’s assets, including their property, will be divided based on their prenup. The divorce finalization comes nine months after Kardashian was ruled legally single during a bifurcation hearing. West had previously challenged Kardashian’s request to be declared legally single, but said in a statement at the time, “I’ve asked my team to expedite the dissolution of my marriage to Kim so I can put my entire attention to our beautiful children.”
Kim Kardashian And Kanye West Relationship
Kardashian and West started dating in 2012 and exchanged vows just after two years in May 2014. Their marriage landed in crisis at the height of West’s public outbursts in 2020 after he launched a controversial bid for president of the United States and exposed deeply personal details about his family and marriage on the campaign trail and on Twitter.
At the time, Kardashian addressed his bipolar disorder diagnosis in a rare public statement, asking fans for “compassion” and acknowledging their “complicated and painful” situation. Afterwards, Kardashian filed for divorce from West in February 2021 after nearly seven years of marriage. Months later, in December, she requested to be declared legally single. She also asked to separate issues of child custody and property from her marital status and to have her maiden name restored.
