A court clerk for Los Angeles Superior Court Friday confirmed Kim Kardashian West filed for divorce from Kanye West.
Christy Welder, a legal representative for Kardashian West, confirmed the divorce filing, but said Kardashian West had no additional comment.
The filing cites irreconcilable differences; Kardashian West seeks joint custody of the couple’s four children. It also cites a prenuptial agreement regarding their assets.
The two, who married in an exorbitant wedding in Italy, 2014, have been living separately for a while.
West has reportedly been living at their home in Wyoming, while Kardashian West has stayed in California with their children.
The couple met in the early 2000s, but it would be years before they became romantically involved.
West interviewed his wife for Vogue Arabia and asked her about the first time they met.
“This was before you released your first album, and you were known as a music producer. I was really shy. You thought I was (singer) Brandy’s assistant, which I wasn’t,” Kardashian West recalled. “Ever since you said that, it’s everywhere … like ‘Kim is Brandy’s assistant.’ I was her friend and stylist. (laughs). I thought you were attractive, nice, very charming, really funny, powerful – I was in awe of you, but I was really shy, quiet, and a little nervous, to be honest.”
Both had high-profile relationships before they went public with their love in 2012.
West famously proposed to Kardashian by renting out a sports stadium and hiring an orchestra, as her family watched from nearby – all of which was documented and shared on the family’s popular E! reality series “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.”
The couple have four children together. Daughter North was born in 2013, followed by a son, Saint, in 2015, daughter, Chicago, in 2018, and son, Psalm, in 2019.
The couple supported each other through tough times, including Kardashian West being robbed at gunpoint in Paris in 2016 during a home invasion.
