A lot is going on at the moment. There's the COVID-19 vaccine. Daft Punk broke up. Plus, a columnist has decided Nick Kyrgios is Australia's Donald Trump. But you and I both know there's only one thing keeping you up at night, namely: what exactly is the latest on Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West's divorce?
The first time we heard whispers that the two were keen to end their marriage as far back as six weeks ago; but back then it was all still speculation. It was only last weekend (in Australia and NZ) that we heard Kim Kardashian West had officially filed for divorce from Kanye West.
And it sounds like the formalities are well underway. Kim is reportedly requesting joint legal and physical custody of the couple's four children, which Kanye seems to be fine with. The couple are apparently committed to co-parenting their four children post-split, with neither party contesting the marital pre-nup currently in place. Word has it the two are even making headway in sorting out a property settlement agreement. Sounds like a whole lot of amicable admin!
The famous couple will divorce after almost seven years of marriage. Kim Kardashian first started dating Kanye in 2012, when she was still technically married to basketball player Kris Humphries. The couple had their first child, North West in 2013 before officially getting married in 2014.
So how are Kim and Kanye feeling about their divorce?
Kim gave us some insight into her emotional state via an Instagram story posted yesterday featuring Olivia Rodrigo's anthemic break-up song, "Driver's License".
Around the same time, a source told E! Online that there has been a "weight lifted off [Kim's] shoulders" since filing for divorce."Kim feels like she can put that part behind her and start to move forward in healing," they added.
But rumour has it that Kanye isn't doing quite as well, and will take some time to adjust to life without Kim. "Kanye is upset that he and Kim couldn't work it out, but he knows the two tried very hard to make it work".
The divorce will reportedly be as a central plotline in the final season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
