American reality TV star, Kim Kardashian has filed for divorce from award-winning rapper, Kanye West after almost seven years of marriage, her publicist told AFP Friday.
The divorce proceedings confirm a split that became public last month, when the billionaire couple were reported by US media to be living separately and going through counseling dealing with “regular relationship issues.”
According to TMZ, while breaking the news Friday, the separation was “as amicable as a divorce can be.”
Kardashian, 40, is asking for joint custody of the couple’s four children, it added, with her lawyer Laura Wasser reportedly filing the divorce papers Friday.
Kardashian’s publicist confirmed the divorce filing but did not provide further details.
The pair, who married in a lavish ceremony in Italy in May 2014, have been dogged for months by reports in the gossip press that their marriage was on the rocks.
