Kim Kardashian has been declared officially single from her former husband Kanye West.
The reality TV star appeared in the court ruling via a video conference call
Kardashian, who filed for divorce from the rapper last year, made the request in December to become legally single.
The former couple 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.
Ye, 44, who was not present for the hearing, had publicly fought the separation and appealed for Kardashian to return to their marriage.
Kim and Kanye’s official divorce news first broke in February 2021.
This came weeks after speculations about their marriage collapse.
Kim and Kanye have four children: North, 8, Saint, 5, Chicago, 4, and Psalm, 2.
