Kim Kardashian has filed for divorce on Friday from husband Kanye West after nearly seven years of marriage according to several reports from Entertainment websites E! News, TMZ and Variety and the Associated Press.
TMZ said sources called the divorce “amicable,” saying Kardashian is asking for joint legal and physical custody of the couple’s four children, which the rapper is “fine” with.
It follows months of speculation that the couple’s marriage was in trouble, with multiple sources close to the couple telling US media that their “divorce is imminent” and Kardashian hiring renowned divorce attorney Laura Wasser.
Keeping Up with the Kardashians star married Gold Digger hitmaker West in May 2014, making them one of the biggest celebrity couples in Hollywood.
West, 43, who suffers from bipolar disorder, ran an unsuccessful US presidential campaign marked by frantic statements under his self-styled Birthday Party.
