The famous Keeping up with the Kardashians reality TV show star, Kim Kardashian, has filed for a divorce from her husband and famous rapper, Kanye West, after about 7 years of marriage. The two have been together since 2014, and as with almost all marriages, they’ve had their ups and downs.
Kim has had all the events leading up to the final divorce documented, and sources reveal she may air the journey in two reality TV series. Cameras have followed the reality TV star throughout the process in the final nine months of her marriage to Kanye, so we should definitely expect a glimpse into her life and how this divorce came about.
Kanye West, on the other hand, has expressed his disapproval of the Kardashian family publicly. Instances like when he spent Christmas at his ranch in Wyoming while Kim celebrated with her family in California already suggest that a split was inevitable.
In response to Kanye’s public disapproval of Kim’s family, the reality TV star went ahead to ask the public to excuse her husband, citing his disorder as the reason people shouldn’t be offended by his controversial statements. She pleaded with her fans to be compassionate towards them, especially during this difficult time in their lives. Others would argue that it’s a bit condescending for her to invalidate his feelings because of his mental health condition or encourage the public not to take him seriously.
Kanye West had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, which affects his mental state and is responsible for a lot of his impulsive behavior. It’s not confirmed that this is the reason why Kim would want a divorce, but it would be ignorant to say it has no part to play in what either inspired or confirmed her decision.
Speculations concerning their divorce have been going around for a while now, ever since the reality TV show star made an appearance without her $1.25-million wedding ring.
Despite everything, however, it seems clear that the divorce will be an amicable one, with both parties involved, willing and ready to see a straightforward and peaceful end to their marriage. The original prenuptial agreement before their marriage is another factor contributing to the peaceful breakup, and we may not see any fuss over it in the coming days.
The couple has four kids, with the oldest, North West, about 7 years old, and the youngest, Psalm West, only 18 months old. In Kim’s divorce filing, she requested joint custody of the kids and chose to keep the details of their split private despite being famous for being an open book about her personal life in her reality TV show.
