Kim Kardashian and Ye settle their divorce, avoiding custody proceedings

Kim Kardashian and Ye have reached a settlement in their divorce, avoiding a trial that had been set for next month, court documents filed Tuesday showed.

The former couple and their lawyers filed documents seeking a judge’s approval of the terms they agreed to, including $200,000 a month in child support payments from Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, to Kardashian.

The two will have joint custody and neither will pay spousal support to the other, according to documents filed in Los Angeles Superior Court.

The judge declared the pair legally unmarried at Kardashian’s request in March, ending their eight-year marriage, but property and custody issues remained to be resolved in a trial that begins on December 14.

The two have four children whose ages range from three to nine.

Kardashian and Ye will split equally the expenses of the children’s private security and private schooling, including college, according to the proposed settlement.

Each will also pay their own debts, the agreement states. The two had a prenuptial agreement and kept their property largely separate.

The couple began dating in 2012 and had their first child in 2013. West proposed later that year using the giant screen at the San Francisco Giants’ empty waterfront park, and the two married on the 24 May 2014, in a ceremony at a Renaissance fortress. in Florence, Italy.

The two appeared to be headed for an amicable split with agreed terms when Kardashian first filed for divorce in February 2021.

Neither publicly discussed the split until earlier this year, when Ye began lashing out on social media against Kardashian, her family and then-boyfriend Pete Davidson. Among his complaints were that he was not allowed to make major parenting decisions and was excluded from birthday parties and other events for their children.

Ye, who fired two lawyers from the divorce filing, also raised several technical issues and motions, including a request for the right to cross-examine any of Kardashian’s new husbands under oath, which Judge Steve Cochran denied prompt.

The settlement comes shortly after several companies cut ties with Ye over offensive and anti-Semitic remarks that further eroded an already wilting public image.

His most recent attorney, Nicholas Salick, did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the settlement.

It was the third marriage for Kardashian, the reality TV superstar, businesswoman and influencer, and the first for rap and fashion mogul Ye. Theirs was one of the most watched celebrity unions in decades.
