Kim Kardashian officially became single again on Wednesday, March 2: a Los Angeles judge granted her divorce from Kanye West, whom she married in 2014.
The reality star appeared in court via the internet but Kanye West was only represented in court by his lawyer, who did not object to the dissolution of the marriage.
Until then, the rapper, who officially got to change his marital status to “Ye” , opposed this separation and had called Kim Kardashian for reconciliation on social networks on several occasions.
Kim Kardashian filed for divorce last year after months of rumors in the press about her marital difficulties and the rapper’s psychological problems.
“I really want to be divorced ,” she wrote in a statement sent last week to the court asking it to speed up the procedure. “I asked Kanye to keep our divorce private but he didn’t ,” the 41-year-old star added.
“I believe that if the court ends our marriage, it will help Kanye to accept that our marital relationship is over and to turn the page” so that we can “peacefully raise our children” , underlined this declaration.
The couple have four children: two girls, North and Chicago (8 and 4 years old respectively) and two boys, Saint and Psalm (6 and 2 years old).
The two stars, who started dating in 2012 and married in Italy two years later, quickly became one of the hottest couples in the world.
But their union was particularly undermined by the unpredictable outbursts of Ye, 44, who suffers from bipolar disorder.
The artist had, for example, embarked on an improbable candidacy for the American presidential election of 2020, collecting only 60,000 votes in the twelve American states in which he was qualified before throwing in the towel.
During his election campaign on social networks, he had mentioned very personal details about his family and his marriage, which had visibly displeased his wife. Kim Kardashian had spoken publicly about the psychological disorders affecting Kanye West, calling on the public to show “compassion” towards him.
It’s the first time that Kanye West divorced but it’s already the third for Kim Kardashian, who was married to music producer Damon Thomas from 2000 to 2004 and basketball player Kris Humphries in 2011, a union that lasted only 72 days.
The star, a billionaire thanks in particular to his lines of cosmetics and clothing, now frequents comedian Pete Davidson, one of the residents of the famous television show “Saturday Night Life”.
