Kim Kardashian requests joint physical and legal custody of her four children with Kanye West, according to TMZ, which cites sources with direct knowledge of the situation stating that West is on board with joint custody. The soon-to-be exes are said to be committed to co-parenting their kids, with neither intending to contest the prenuptial arrangement. They’re reportedly already working on a property settlement agreement.
Despite efforts by Kim Kardashian to debunk rumors of trouble within the marriage as recently as November, when she clapped back at people claiming that Kanye West wasn’t present at her birthday party, which came after she shared the ghost hologram of her father that West gave her on her birthday. Rumors later spread that West didn’t stay at Kardashian’s party for long, showing up late and leaving early.
Less than a month after Kim Kardashian shared the photo of her with Kanya West at her birthday party, however, they were reportedly living separate lives, even if not necessarily on the road to divorce just yet. Sources claim that Kardashian was ready to end their marriage in 2020 after West dropped a series of comments about her family on Twitter but didn’t take action because he was struggling with his bipolar disorder. Later reports suggest that West is “sick” of his involvement with Kris Jenner and the rest of the extended Kardashian/Jenner family.
