CALIFORNIA – After nearly seven years of marriage, Kim Kardashian West has filed for divorce from Kanye West.
The split between the celebrity couple first broke out on celebrity website TMZ. Sources said the divorce was amicable and that Kardashian asked for joint custody of their four children.
The couple’s children are North, 7; Saint, 5; Chicago, 3; and Psalm, who is 21 months old.
The grounds for the divorce were not immediately known, and representatives for West did not immediately issue a comment.
The filing of the divorce comes after months of reports and speculation of trouble in their marriage. Last July, West had posted in a since-deleted tweet that he has been trying to divorce Kardashian.
Kardashian responded with an Instagram statement urging people to understand West and claiming he struggled with bipolar disorder.
Last September, it was announced that reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians was ending in 2021 after a 14-year run. CCP/Expat Media
