American rapper Kanye West has responded to his estranged wife Kim Kardashian West’s February divorce filing to end their six-and-a-half-year marriage as husband and wife.
On Friday, April 9, the rapper’s attorneys filed his response in Los Angeles superior court seeking joint legal and physical custody of his four children with Kim Kardashian in their ongoing divorce.
According to TMZ, Kanye’s response to Kim Kardashian’s divorce filing is “basically a mirror image” of his estranged wife’s petition, agreeing that the marriage should end over irreconcilable differences and that the two should share custody of their children: North, age 7, Saint, age 5, Chicago, age 3, and Psalm, who turns 2 next month.
Kim Kardashian West cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason she is divorcing rapper Kanye West.
The reality TV star filed divorce papers with an LA court that also confirmed she is seeking joint custody of their four children – North, seven, Saint, five, Chicago, three, and Psalm, one.
She filed for divorce after seven years of marriage, ending months of intense speculation over one of the most-talked about couples in showbiz.
The businesswoman has enlisted the services of lawyer Laura Wasser, who earned the title “disso queen” thanks to her work sorting out the divorces of high-profile celebrities.
