Kim Kardashian has officially pulled the plug on her marriage to Kanye West.
The E! reality TV star filed for divorce from Kanye West on Friday, Feb. 19, E! News confirms. According to documents, Kim has requested joint legal and physical custody of their kids, and cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for their split.
This major development comes after a source told E! News their relationship had effectively reached its breaking point following months of private turmoil.
Kanye, who went public with their relationship in April 2012 and married in May 2014, share four children together, North West, 7, Saint West, 5, Chicago West, 3, and Psalm West, 20 months.
Kim, 40, held off on officially submitting divorce documents out of concern for their little ones. “She wants to make sure she’s making the right decision for the kids,” the source explained to E! News.
It’s not about the marriage anymore, she’ll always care for Kanye but it’s over between them,” added the source. “Kim is only focused on what’s best for the kids. It’s a tough decision for her and she’s figuring it out.”
