After two months without lifting a finger or saying a word, Kanye West submitted his response to the divorce papers filed by his wife Kim Kardashian on February 19. The couple who share four children in common – North (7), Saint (5), Chicago (3), and Psalm (1), separated over irreconcilable differences after living separate lives since last year.
According to People, the rapper’s attorney, 43, filed a legal response on Friday, in which West requests joint legal and physical custody of his children. It also asks that the court’s right to grant spousal support for either person be disregarded. The document refers to “irreconcilable differences” as a reason for the couple’s divorce, although no date of separation is given.
Kim and Kanye separated after six years of marriage. In February, sources close to the couple told the US magazine that neither the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star nor West are contesting the current prenup and were getting closer to a deal. Each one is in a different place. Kardashian, 40, still lives in her Hidden Hills mansion with the kids, and West is on her ranch in Wyoming.
“Kim plans to stay at the Hidden Hills house with the kids. This is his house and Kim does not want to move now at least, “said an informant to the magazine. “They both agree that the fewer stress children experience, the better. Kanye loves his children. He wants them to be happy. He doesn’t want to fight Kim for anything. West is said to travel to Los Angeles from time to time to reunite with his children.
Over Easter weekend, Kim reunited with her family in Palm Springs, California. The Kardashian-Jenner clan shared photos of their family gathering and while exposing their bodies to the sun in tiny bikinis. The CEO of SKIMS and KKW Beauty appeared in several photos wearing Kanye’s Yeezy shoes, showing that her break with the businessman does not prevent her from using their products.
