Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West are calling it quits.
The “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star, 40, has filed for divorce from the “Jesus is King” musician, 43, following almost seven years of marriage, Kardashian West’s ep Christy Welder confirms to USA TODAY.
The Associated Press reports Kardashian West filed for divorce in Los Angeles Superior Court. The filing was not immediately available.
According to TMZ, which broke the news, Kardashian West is asking for joint legal and physical custody of the couple’s four children: daughter North, 7, son Saint, 5, daughter Chicago, 3, and son Psalm, who turns 2 in May.
Kardashian West and West tied the knot in an over-the-top Italian ceremony in May 2014 after getting engaged on Kardashian’s 33rd birthday in October 2013. Both events were captured on the long-running reality series “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” which is set to air its final season in March.
This will mark Kardashian West’s third divorce. She was previously married to music producer Damon Thomas (2000-2003) and NBA player Kris Humphries (2011- 2013), from whom she famously filed for divorce after only 72 days of marriage.

Kanye West jokes about Kim Kardashian’s ex Kris Humphries, says he got a $68M tax refund. The split of Hollywood’s power couple comes on the heels of a rocky 2020.
West was diagnosed with COVID-19 mid-March at the onset of the pandemic. Kardashian West opened up about the daunting task of caring for her ailing husband in October.
“Kanye had it way at the beginning, when nobody really knew what was going on,” Kardashian West said during her GRAZIA cover story interview. “It was so scary and unknown. I had my four babies and no one else in the house to help.”COVID-19 and vaccine: Here’s what Kim Kardashian West, Tom Hanks are saying
In July, West announced he was running for president, a political campaign that failed to gain much traction after a rocky start and an unhinged campaign rally in South Carolina.
West elicited concerns about his mental health during the political rally as he shouted without a microphone, cried and offered deeply personal statements about his family, including a revelation that the couple considered terminating their first pregnancy. He tearfully said Kardashian West fought to keep the unborn child, and gave birth to daughter North in 2013. “So even if my wife were to divorce me after this speech, she brought North into the world, even when I didn’t want to,” West said on July 19. “She stood up, and she protected that child.”
West went on to send a barrage of worrisome tweets days after his presidential campaign rally, including a now-deleted tweet from July 22 that read, “I been trying to get divorced since Kim met with Meek at the Warldolf (sic) for ‘prison reform.’ ”
During his tweet storm, West also suggested that he was resisting intervention efforts by Kardashian West, his mother-in-law Kris Jenner and medical professionals. He accused the Kardashian family of trying “to lock me up.”
In September of last year, West returned to Twitter to equate his record contract with Sony and Universal to “modern day slave ships” and declared that he wouldn’t release any new music until he’s released from his contract. He went on to release a 5-song classical project, “Emmanuel,” on Christmas Day.

“I understand Kanye is subject to criticism because he is a public figure and his actions at times can cause strong opinions and emotions,” Kardashian West wrote in a lengthy Instagram statement on July 22. “He is a brilliant but complicated person who on top of the pressures of being an artist and a black man, who experienced the painful loss of his mother, and has to deal with the pressure and isolation that is heightened by his bi-polar disorder. Those who are close with Kanye know his heart and understand his words some times do not align with his intentions.”
