The news was confirmed that E! News, and disclosed that Kim has requested for joint legal and physical custody of their kids.
A reliable source said that their relationship had effectively reached its breaking point following months of private turmoil.
An insider shared with E! News: “It’s gotten to the point where they haven’t spent time together as a married couple in months.
“They’ve seen each other for the sake of the kids but have been living separately. Kim knows the marriage is over. She’s known for a while.”
The couple went public with their relationship in April 2012, and got married in May 2014.
They have four children together, North West – 7 years, Saint West – 5 years, Chicago West – 2 years, and Psalm West – 20 months.
The reality TV star had previously withheld the official submission of the divorce documents out of concern for their children.
“It’s not about the marriage anymore, she’ll always care for Kanye but it’s over between them.
“Kim is only focused on what’s best for the kids. It’s a tough decision for her and she’s figuring it out.”
Over the past few months, Kim and Kanye have been living separately as Kanye had been staying at his Wyoming ranch, while Kim continued living in Los Angeles.
“She is doing her thing and he is doing his,” a source stated back then in December.
“She doesn’t micromanage it or worry about it too much. She lets him go off and be who he is. It is what it is,” the source added.
The children are at grasses in this giants tussle, but an insider stated that they are still a family and they come together for the kids.
Despite the blaring news about their divorce, Kanye was at Kim’s 40th birthday celebration last October to show her his love, and the creation of hologram of Robert Kardashian, Kim’s late father, was orchestrated by him.
“For my birthday, Kanye got me the most thoughtful gift of a lifetime,” she gushed on social media at the time.
“A special surprise from heaven. A hologram of my dad. It is so lifelike and we watched it over and over, filled with lots so tears and emotion. I can’t even describe what this meant to me and my sisters, my brother, my mom and closest friends to experience together. Thank you so much Kanye for this memory that will last a lifetime,” she added.
