Kim Kardashian West doesn’t give in to Kanye’s pleas.
According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, the 41-year-old multi-hyphen filed Friday to become “legally single” in the midst of divorce proceedings with Ye. If approved by a judge, the order will effectively separate issues such as child custody and land ownership from Kim’s marital status. In addition, the mother of four has asked the court to restore her maiden name, which means that she has decided to drop the surname “West”.
The news comes about 10 months after Kim announced her decision to divorce Kanye after seven years of marriage; the couple started dating in 2012 and tied the knot in May 2014, less than a year after Kim gave birth to their first child, North West. Since then, Kim and Ye have welcomed three more children: Chicago, Saint and Psalm.
Kim’s case comes less than a day after attending Ye’s Free Larry Hoover’s benefit concert with special guest Drake. While performing on his 2010 hit “Runaway”, Ye reiterated his desire for reconciliation, “I need you to run to me,” he repeated towards the end of the song, before moving on. add: “Specifically, Kimberly”.
During a speech on Skid Row last month, Kanye took the time to reflect on the “mistakes” he made when he married Kim. He admitted that some of his choices and behaviors were unacceptable, but remained confident that he and his wife still had a chance.
âIf the enemy can pull Kimye apart, there will be millions of families who feel like this separation is OKâ¦â he told the crowd at the pre-Thanksgiving event. “… [But] when God – who has already won and who is – brings Kimye together, there will be millions of families who are going to be influenced and see that they can overcome the work of separation, the trauma that the devil used to capitalize on for keep people in misery while people step over the homeless to go to the Gucci store.
Kim, who is now romantically involved with Saturday Night Live star Pete Davidson, has not commented publicly on the recent filing.
