Kim Kardashian has officially filed for divorce from Kanye West. It has been reported that they have been separated and living separate lives for a while.

The 40-year-old reality star filed for divorce on Friday, February 19. According to TMZ, she is seeking joint legal and physical custody of their four kids. The news comes one month after reports that, Kardashian and West, 43, were in settlement talks after she had divorce lawyer Laura Wasser on “retainer” since the summer of 2020.

“[Kim] will continue to focus on her business empire,” a insider told Us in January as the divorce loomed. “Kim has been in individual counseling and is at peace with where her life is headed.”

Kim has been over Kanye West shenanigans for a long time.

In July, West wrote in a now-deleted tweet, “I been trying to get divorced since Kim met with Meek at the Warldolf [sic] for ‘prison reform,’” referring to a criminal justice summit attended by Kardashian and rapper Meek Mill in November 2018. He later apologized on Twitter, his public platform of choice to air grievances. 

The Hollywood couple got married in 2014 and have two daughters, North and Chicago; and two sons, Saint and Psalm. Their separation marks Kardashian’s third divorce, following her relationships with basketball player Kris Humphries and music producer Damon Thomas.
