Since Kim Kardashian and Kanye West went public with their relationship in April 2012 and married in May 2014, the couple has been through an endless roller coaster of highs and lows in the press. One of the most encouraging things seems to be welcoming their four children: North, 8, Saint, 6, Chicago, 4, and Psalm, 2.
But on February 19, 2021, Kardashian filed for divorce from West, seeking joint legal and physical custody of their children and citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for their divorce. In the nearly one year that has passed since then, it has been a bit of a roller coaster for the co-parents. Here are the details of Kardashian and West’s divorce. The latest development: on Wednesday, March 2, a judge granted Kardashian’s request to be declared legally single, reports People.
How Kim Kardashian and Kanye West met
Before they were romantic, Kardashian and West were friends. They met in 2003 on the set of a Brandy music video. On the 10th anniversary of Keeping Up With The Kardashians in 2017, Kim said: “I think I met him in 2002 or 2003. He recorded a song with Brandy and I was his friend. I remember being with him, and then they made a video, so I saw it several times. She asked her friends, “Who is Kim Kardashian?” He doesn’t know my name.”
Fast forward to 2010. In Kourtney and Kim Take New York, West stops by the sisters’ future DASH store. Although the couple is still totally platonic, fans can’t help but notice the chemistry between the would-be lovebirds.
In March 2012, Kardashian sat front row at West’s Paris Fashion Week Show wearing many of his pieces. Within weeks, they became official. In April, the Grammy winner released “Cold,” in which he rapped, “I’ll admit it, I’m in love with Kim.”
And on May 24, 2014, the couple said “I do” at the historic Forte di Belvedere in Florence, Italy.
Why did Kim and Kanye break up?
In early January 2021, Page Six reported that the couple was ending their marriage after nearly seven years.
“They’re on the fence about it, but it’s done. Kim has hired Laura Wasser and they’re in talks to settle,” a source told the publication, noting that they’re living separate lives. “He’s serious about going to the bar and becoming a lawyer, he’s serious about campaigning for prison reform. Meanwhile, Kanye’s talking about the presidential election and other crazy nonsense and he’s sick of it.”
In June 2021, an episode of the final season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians aired, in which Kardashian revealed why she ended her third marriage. (She was previously married to songwriter Damon Thomas and basketball player Kris Humphries.)
“After I turned 40 this year, I realized, no, I don’t want a husband who lives in a completely different state,” she told Kris Jenner. “I’d like someone who goes to the same shows as us; I’d like someone to practice with me…little things that I don’t have.”
She posed the same question in a recent interview with Vogue for their March cover story, noting, “For so long I’ve been doing what made other people happy. I chose it myself. I think it’s okay that I choose you.”
The mother-of-four and entrepreneur continued: “My 40s are about being on Team Me.
In December 2021, he confirmed this by filing court papers to declare himself legally single and separate child custody and property issues from his marital status amid the couple’s ongoing divorce, TMZ reports. On Feb. 23, Kardashian explained, “I am asking the Court to restore my single status so that I can begin the healing process and our family can begin the healing process and move forward in this new chapter. live..” And on Wednesday, March 2, the judge ruled in her favor. According to TMZ, Kardashian will now be known as Kim Kardashian — and West has dropped her legal name.
Who are they now?
In October 2021, tongues started wagging when Kardashian appeared on Saturday Night Live and did an Aladdin set with cast members Pete Davidson, and their chemistry was evident.
Denying a budding romance and several public appearances/dates in New York and Los Angeles, including a trip to the Bahamas, sources told Page Six in early January that they are “very happy together.” “””
“Things are going great between them. They’re taking things slow, but they’re both very happy when they’re together,” a source told Page Six.
Meanwhile, in mid-February, West was reportedly in an open relationship with Italian-American actress Julia .
In early March, West appeared to have moved in with 24-year-old Kardashian Chaney Jones. West reposted an Instagram of him and Jones making The Shade Room together, adding a black heart emoji to the caption. A source close to West reportedly told E! The pair have reportedly “spent a lot of time together in the last two weeks and she loves his company. She travels with him and they have a good time.” The source added that West is not “exclusively dating anyone” and that there is “no label yet” to his relationship with Jones.
How they work together
. I hope one day I can meet them and we can all be friends.” West captioned the screenshot: “NEVER meet the kids.” Neither Davidson nor Kardashian have responded publicly.
The message was revealed in court documents filed by Kardashian on February 23 and reads: “I really want a divorce. I asked Kanye to keep our divorce a secret and he didn’t. Kanye has been spreading a lot of misinformation about our private life in the family and on social media. Raising our children has created emotional tension. Kanye didn’t agree, but at least he seems to understand that I want to end our marriage. I don’t love you.. .” ”
Make sure you’re your partner — your parents’ biggest cheerleader, no matter what you’re going through.”
We hope that the philosophy will eventually apply to parents of four as well.
