Kanye West and Kim Kardashian Seek Joint Custody After Divorce

0

The U.S rapper, Kanye West is seeking joint custody of his four children with estranged wife and reality star, Kim Kardashian.

The rapper’s response to Kardashian’s February divorce filing is “basically a mirror image” of his estranged wife’s petition, according to the site, which noted that the joint custody doesn’t necessarily mean a 50/50 split of North, 7, Saint, 5, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 1.

They have also agreed that they do not need spousal support.

West and Kardashian have two daughters – North and Chicago, age seven and three respectively- and two sons – Saint, five, and Psalm, who turns two next month.

According to Kardashian’s filing, they kept their property separate throughout their marriage because of the terms of a pre-nuptial agreement.

The couple are among the most recognizable stars in the world and are both hugely successful in their own right. Their marriage was one of the most closely followed in recent decades.

Kardashian, 40, first found fame in 2007 as the star of reality TV show about her family, keeping up with the Kardashians. The show has remained popular since then and is due to air its final series on the E! Cable network next year.

West, 43, is one of the biggest names in rap music, known for global hits like Stronger, Jesus Walks and Gold Digger. He has also found success as a fashion designer.

Last year, West unsuccessfully ran for US president. During his campaign, a series of erratic public appearances and online postings by the rapper sparked concern and led Kardashian to speak out.

She said her husband had bipolar disorder, was a “brilliant but complicated person” and called for greater empathy surrounding his mental health from the public and the media.
