Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have finalized their divorce, with both parties agreeing to joint custody and no spousal support.
The former couple and their attorneys filed documents asking for a judge’s approval of terms they have agreed on, including $200,000 US per month child support payments from Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, to Kardashian.
He will also be responsible for half of the children’s medical, educational, and security expenses.
The judge declared the two legally single at Kardashian’s request in March, ending their eight-year marriage, but issues of property and custody remained that were to be worked out in a trial starting Dec. 14.
The pair also agreed to settle disputes regarding the children by participating in mediation. However, if either party fails to take part, the other is allowed to make the decision in a dispute by default.
The couple began dating in 2012 and had their first child in 2013. West proposed later that year, using the giant screen at the empty waterfront ballpark of the San Francisco Giants, and the two married May 24, 2014, in a ceremony at a Renaissance fortress in Florence, Italy.
Their marriage landed in crisis at the height of West’s public outbursts in 2020 after he launched a controversial bid for president of the United States and divulged deeply personal details about his family and marriage on the campaign trail and on Twitter.
At the time, Kardashian addressed his bipolar disorder diagnosis in a rare public statement, asking fans for “compassion” and acknowledging their “complicated and painful” situation.
The two appeared to be headed for a cordial split with agreed-upon terms when Kardashian first filed for divorce in February 2021.
Neither discussed the split publicly until early this year, when Ye started lashing out on social media against Kardashian, her family and then-boyfriend Pete Davidson.
