The details of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s prenup has been revealed amid their ongoing divorce.
Although Kimye attempted to keep their split amicable at the beginning, things got messy after the SKIMS owner began dating Saturday Night Live comedian Pete Davidson in November, leading Ye to share some controversial posts online.
Ye, who was in a relationship with Uncut Gems actress Julia Fox until recently, began sharing posts threatening Pete - posts which Kim begged him to take down in leaked text messages out of fear for her beau’s safety.
Following this, Kim stated in new divorce papers that she was ready to move on and become legally single, writing: “I very much desire to be divorced”.
In documents obtained by TMZ, the mother-of-four said she wished to proceed with the divorce amid Kanye’s behaviour, adding: “Kanye has been putting a lot of misinformation regarding our private matters and co-parenting on social media which has created emotional distress.”
After this, Ye filed new legal documents attempting to make his social media antics inadmissible in this week’s hearing - where a judge will allegedly decide whether to restore Kim’s single status.
The ‘Donda’ rapper’s lawyer is also now saying that their prenup can’t be viewed as valid, despite previously filing documents saying he would agree to their divorce under the condition that all of their assets will be frozen for now to prevent Kim from transferring assets out of any trust.
However, Kim has since responded via the documents, according to TMZ, where she stated that their prenup has always kept their trusts and assets separate.
“Both Kanye and I came into the marriage with significant separate property estates,” Kim explained in the paperwork.
“We each wanted to protect our premarital assets and the earnings from those assets and any appreciation in the value of our premarital assets during our marriage.”
Kim went on to say that even their finances were kept separate apart from one joint account that they used to pay their children’s expenses; North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm.
The KUWTK star’s statement in her new documents went on to say that she thinks their marriage officially being terminated in court will ‘help Kanye accept’ that their relationship is over and will allow them to progress into a healthy space of ‘peacefully co-parenting’.
