Reality star and beauty entrepreneur, Kim Kardashian has filed for divorce from husband Kanye West after almost seven years of marriage.
Representatives for Los Angeles Superior Court and for the 40-year-old star said on Friday that she had filed the divorce papers.
According to TMZ, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are splitting amicably and they’ve civilly agreed to part ways. Neither party has yet to address the news of their separation publicly.
The filing follows months of leaks and reports that the marriage between the two celebrities was on the rocks.
Kardashian, who made her name in the reality TV series “Keeping Up with the Kardashians”, married West, 43, in May 2014, making them one of the most talked about celebrity couples in Hollywood and popularly known as “Kimye”.
The couple’s already unconventional relationship became strained last year when West, who suffers from bipolar disorder, ran an unsuccessful campaign marked by erratic statements to be elected US president under his self-styled Birthday Party.
Kardashian in July released a statement urging compassion for West’s mental health struggles after he swiftly deleted a tweet in which he said he had been trying to divorce her for months.
The couple grew further apart with the 21-time Grammy winner spending most of his time at his ranch in Wyoming and Kardashian remaining in their Calabasas mansion outside Los Angeles.
During their 7 year marriage, the couple welcomed four children together, daughter North born in 2013, a son Saint, who was born in 2015, daughter Chicago born in 2018 and son Psalm born in 2019.
