Kim Kardashian has filed for divorce from Kanye West.

A rep for Kardashian confirmed the news to Insider, which was first reported by TMZ.

According to sources quoted in TMZ’s article, the couple, who’ve been married for seven years, are planning on pursuing a joint custody agreement for their four children.

Kardashian was the one who reportedly requested the arrangement.

The sources also told TMZ that the split is “amicable,” and that Kardashian and West are “committed to co-parenting” together.

News of the couple’s impending separation first broke in December after Page Six reported that the couple was “done.”

Still, prior to the report, Kardashian and West’s relationship had hit several rocky patches.

In July, West tweeted that he had been considering divorcing his wife since 2018, when she paired up with the rapper Meek Mill to work on criminal-justice reform.

That was part of a series of later-deleted tweets in which he also referred to his mother-in-law, Kris Jenner, as “Kris Jong-Un,” seemingly connecting her to the controversial North Korea leader.

And last December, an anonymous source told E! News that the couple weren’t spending much physical time together and were “focused on the things that are important to them.”

Kardashian, for instance, has been focused on her law career, while West ran for president in 2020 as a third-party candidate.

The couple married in a lavish ceremony in Italy in May 2014, and have four children together— North, 7; Saint, 5; Chicago, 2; and Psalm, 1.

Their relationship was Kardashian’s third marriage (she was previously married to Damon Thomas from 2000 to 2004, and from Kris Humphries from 2011 to 2013), and West’s first.
