Kim Kardashian and Ye reach a divorce settlement, will share custody | UKTN news

Kim Kardashian and Ye have settled their divorce, averting a trial scheduled for next month, according to court documents filed Tuesday.

The former couple and their lawyers filed documents asking for a judge’s approval of terms they agreed to, which included $200,000 US per month child support payments from Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, to Kardashian.

According to the documents filed with the Los Angeles Superior Court, the two will have joint custody and neither will pay the other spousal support.

The judge declared the two legally single at Kardashian’s request in March, ending their eight-year marriage, but issues of ownership and custody remained to be resolved in a trial on December 14.

The two have four children ages three to nine.

The settlement comes after companies cut ties with Ye

The couple began dating in 2012 and had their first child in 2013. West proposed later that year, taking advantage of the giant screen in the empty waterfront baseball field of the San Francisco Giants, and the two married on May 24, 2014 at a ceremony in a Renaissance fortress in Florence, Italy.

The two appeared to be headed for a cordial split with agreed terms when Kardashian first filed for divorce in February 2021. Neither of them publicly discussed the split until early this year, when Ye began lashing out at Kardashian, her family, and then-boyfriend Pete Davidson on social media.

One of Ye’s complaints was that he was not allowed to make important parenting decisions and was banned from birthday parties and other events for their children.

Ye, who has fired two lawyers since the divorce filing, also raised several technical issues and demands, including the right to question each of Kardashian’s new husbands under oath, which Judge Steve Cochran promptly rejected.

The settlement comes shortly after several companies cut ties with Ye over offensive and anti-Semitic remarks that further eroded its already damning public image.

His newest attorney, Nicholas Salick, did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the settlement.

It was the third marriage for Kardashian, the reality TV superstar, businesswoman and influencer, and the first marriage for the hip-hop and fashion mogul Ye.

Theirs was one of the most followed celebrity unions in decades.
