Kim and Kanye West divorce final

Reality TV star Kim Kardashian’s marriage to Kanye West officially ended on Wednesday when a Los Angeles judge finalized her divorce from the rapper now known as Ye.

Kardashian appeared in court virtually, but Ye was only represented by his lawyer, who did not object to the termination of the marriage.

You had fought the divorce in public, also with… social media posts begged Kardashian to reconcile.

Kardashian filed for divorce last year after months of press releases about marital spats and when Ye struggled with mental health issues.

“I really want a divorce,” Kardashian wrote in a statement filed with the court last week.

“I believe the court ending our marital status will help Kanye accept that our marital relationship is over and move forward on a better path that will help us peacefully co-parent our children.”

The couple has four children: eight-year-old daughter North, six-year-old son Saint, four-year-old daughter Chicago and two-year-old son Psalm.

The couple, who began dating in 2012 and married two years later in a lavish ceremony in Italy, quickly became one of the world’s most instantly recognizable couples.

But their union ran into trouble over reports of bizarre outbursts from Ye, 44, who suffers from bipolar disorder.

In 2020, the mercurial entertainment mogul launched a bid for the US presidency with a disjointed speech in which he revealed shocking personal details about his daughter and burst into tears.

He also posted tweets accusing his wife and mother-in-law of locking him up.

Kardashian has previously called on the media and the public to show “compassion and empathy” about her husband’s erratic behavior.

It is the first divorce for Ye and the third for Kardashian, who rose to fame with the American reality TV series “Keeping Up with the Kardashians”, which followed the lives of her relatives in Los Angeles.

Chicago-raised Ye stormed the rap scene through his production skills, before delivering a string of critically acclaimed and best-selling studio albums.

In recent years, he has turned publicly to Christian evangelism.

Last August, he filed to legally change his name to his old nickname “Ye”, saying it was for “personal reasons”.

The couple began dating while Kardashian was going through divorce proceedings with second husband Kris Humphries.

Kardashian is now dating 28-year-old comedian and actor Pete Davidson.
