The E! reality TV star filed for divorce from Kanye Weston Friday, Feb. 19, E! News confirms. Kim has requested joint legal and physical custody of their kids.
This major development comes after a source told E! News their relationship had effectively reached its breaking point following months of private turmoil.
“It’s gotten to the point where they haven’t spent time together as a married couple in months,” an insider shared with E! News. “They’ve seen each other for the sake of the kids but have been living separately. Kim knows the marriage is over. She’s known for a while.”
Kim, 40, held off on officially submitting divorce documents out of concern for their little ones. “She wants to make sure she’s making the right decision for the kids,” the source explained to E! News.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West will resort to their pre-nuptial agreement to separate their riches, in which Kim will get $6million cash, their Bel Air mansion, and all of the gifts the rapper has gotten her through the years.
The superstar couple had a nasty split last year and have “lived separate lives” in the months since the rapper’s public mental health breakdown.
Though the couple has appeared to be on bad terms recently, sources tell TMZ things have been as “amicable as a divorce can be.”
Kardashian kicked off the New Year by retainingcelebrity divorce attorney Laura Wasser, who TMZ reports made the divorce filing. Just a week ago, Kardashian was spotted without her wedding ring, while West was spotted wearing his on February 17. That day, a source told [I]People[/I] that West was “not doing well,” adding, “he knows that the marriage is over, and there’s nothing that can be done right now. He also knows what he is losing in Kim.”
Sources close to the family told the outlet Kanye is “fine” with the joint custody arrangement as the couple are “committed to co-parenting together.”
Before their big 2014 wedding, Kim and Kanye hired their lawyers to prepare a prenup in case of a divorce.
According to sources who spoke to RadarOnline.com back in 2014, the Skims founder would get $1million for every year they were married, capping at $10million.
She would also keep their Bel Air home, which was put under her name, despite Kanye paying for most of it.
She will also get to keep all of the pricey gifts and jewelry were given to her by Kanye, including a $40,000 hand-painted Hermes bag, several Cartier bracelets valued at at least $35,000 each, and a neon green Mercedes-Benz G550 SUV worth at least $227,000.
Most famously, Kanye gave Kim two engagements – one was valued at $2million and the second one, which was stolen during the infamous Paris robbery, was valued at $4.5million.
Fortunately, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star will get to keep all the money she made from the Kardashian clothing line, SKIMS, KKW, and promotional appearances as they are considered her sole and separate income.
Back then, it was also revealed that Kim would remain the beneficiary of one of Kanye’s life insurance policies, which is valued at $20million, even if the two divorced.
At the time, the source told RadarOnline.com: "The entire process for the prenup for Kim and Kanye has been extremely easy, and relatively drama free.

As of October 2020, Kim is estimated to be worth $780 million, according to Forbes. She followed in her sister Kylie’s footsteps and sold a 20-percent stake in her KKW Beauty line to Coty for $200 million while Kanye’s net worth is $1.26 billion, Forbes reported in January 2021, based on an estimate made in April 2020. Most of the rapper and designer’s wealth is tied to his Yeezy apparel brand, which he owns 100 percent.

This was bound to happen . Kanye West is not well mentally. I mean he is suffering from immense mental problems. He is a mathare case basically. When he is off his meds for a day he runs to the nearest mic to say sth very dumb , crazy or nuts. Kanye needs real help eg. A new brain, coz with that money he cant still fix it… damn
