Kanye West, Kim Kardashian Agree Divorce, To Share Joint Custody For Kids



US rapper and American billionaire, Kanye West and estrange wife Kim Kardashian West have agreed to joint custody of their four children.

Naija News also reports that non of the celebrity duo will be needing spousal support.

Kim had earlier filed for divorce from Kanye in a move that ended their marriage that lasted for nearly seven years.

According to UK Guardian, documents show that Kanye’s attorneys filed a response last Friday in LA’S superior court to Kim’s divorce petition, which had only begun the process of ending their marriage.

It is understood that Kanye’s filing was identical to Kim’s original petition agreeing that the marriage should end over and that the two should share custody of their children: North (7), Saint (5), Chicago (3), and Psalm (nearly 2).

As in Kim’s, West went ahead to ask that the court’s right to award spousal support to either person be terminated.

In Kim’s 19 February filing, she said they had a prenuptial agreement under which they kept properties separate.

The two, who married in a lavish wedding in Italy in 2014, have been living apart for some time. 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. 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 supported each other through tough times, including Kardashian West being robbed at gunpoint in Paris in 2016 during a home invasion.
