Kanye West has agreed to joint custody of his and Kim Kardashian’s four young children. His response mirrors Kardashian’s divorce filing from 19 February, which began the process of ending their almost seven-year marriage.
West’s attorneys filed his response Friday in Los Angeles superior court to Kardashian West’s divorce filing seven weeks earlier, which began the process of ending their six-and-a-half-year marriage.
West’s filing was virtually identical to Kardashian West’s original petition, agreeing that the marriage should end over irreconcilable differences, and that the two should share custody of their children: North, age seven, Saint, age five, Chicago, age three, and Psalm, who turns two next month.
According to BBC, Kardashian’s filing revealed they kept their property separate throughout their marriage because of the terms of a pre-nuptial agreement.
The couple are among the most recognisable stars in the world and are both hugely successful in their own right.
Their marriage was one of the most closely followed in recent decades. It was the first marriage for West and the third for Kardashian West, who has not asked the court to change her name back to just Kardashian, though she may still do so during the divorce process.
