Billionaire reality star, Kim Kardashian has been officially declared single from Kanye West after nearly eight years of marriage.
In a virtual court hearing on Wednesday, Kim Kardashian, who filed for divorce from the rapper last year, was granted the request to become single.
Naija News understands that the reality star also officially and legally dropped “West” from her last name.
The former couple who have four children together, must still resolve the division of property and custody of their four children.
Wednesday’s ruling – granting Kardashian’s request for a “bifurcated divorce” – means that divorce proceedings will be split into two parts – the first settling her legal name and marital status, now resolved, and the second part involving custody and financial assets.
In several sworn statements submitted since December, the 41-year-old beauty and television mogul said she “very much” desired the termination of her marriage.
“I believe that the court terminating our marital status will help Kanye to accept that our marital relationship is over,” she wrote in a statement last month.
