Kanye West, Kim Kardhashian Finalise Divorce
Kim Kardashian married rapper Kanye West in 2014, and she filed for divorce nearly seven years later. According to People magazine, the couple has finalised their divorce and agreed to pay $200,000 per month for the raising of their four children: North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm.
Ms Kardashian filed for divorce in February, claiming disagreements. According to the agreement, Ye (Kanye West, who officially changed his name last year) will deposit $200,000 into Kardashian’s account on the first of each month, and he will be liable for the children’s school, medical, and security fees.
Both have settled in such a way that they must settle their child custody concerns through mediation. They began dating in 2012 and married two years later. The issue began in 2020, when the rapper announced his intention to run for President of the United States, and throughout his campaign, he exposed details about his personal life and their marriage.
In a rare public statement at the time, Kardashian acknowledged his bipolar disorder diagnosis, urging followers for “compassion” and admitting their “complex and traumatic” situation.
The divorce settlement parameters were agreed about nine months after Kardashian was declared legally single during a bifurcation court. West had previously disputed Kardashian’s desire to be declared legally single, but stated at the time, “I’ve requested my team to hasten the divorce of my marriage to Kim so I may devote my full focus to our beautiful children.”
In court filings filed in February 2021, Kim stated that she wanted to split and begged West to keep their divorce discreet, but he refused to do so, resulting in the ugly and costly divorce.
