Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are going their separate ways after six years of marriage. After much speculation, the 40-year-old mogul filed for divorce from the 43-year-old rapper on Friday, according to E! News, which cited court documents obtained by TMZ. According to Variety, the split is "amicable," and Kim is requesting joint legal and physical custody of their four children, which Kanye is reportedly "fine" with.
"It's gotten to the point where they haven't spent time together as a married couple in months," an insider told 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 and Kanye's romance dates all the way back to the spring of 2012, when they first began dating. They got engaged a year later. Kanye popped the question by renting out San Francisco's AT&T Park (now known as Oracle Park) for Kim's 33rd birthday celebration, and in May 2014, they tied the knot in a lavish wedding in Italy. Kim and Kanye have four children together: 7-year-old daughter North, 5-year-old son Saint, 3-year-old daughter Chicago, and 1-year-old son Psalm. The pair's last public appearance together was during Paris Fashion Week in March 2020. Kim celebrated the 10-year anniversary of Kanye's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy album on Instagram in November of that year. Kim and Kanye have yet to publicly confirm the news themselves.
