Kim Kardashian and her relationship with Kanye West
Kardashian and West began dating in 2012. They got married in May 2014 but ran into some trouble in 2020 when West launched a campaign for President of the United States and started revealing deep personal details about his family and marriage on the campaign trail and on Twitter.
At the time, Kardashian asked fans to be understanding of their situation complex and painful situation that resulted from West’s bipolar disorder diagnosis.
Later, in February 2021, Kardashian filed for divorce from West after almost seven years of marriage. Then, in December, Kim asked to be legally declared single. She also requested that child custody and property issues should not be connected with her marital status and that she wants her maiden name back.
In February, Kardashian filed court documents that said, “I want to be divorced. I asked Kanye to keep our divorce secret so we could work things out between us, but he hasn’t. He’s put a lot of false information about me and our children on social media which caused emotional distress.” Shepherd continued by saying she believes the court terminating their marital status will help West “accept that our relationship is over and move forward so we can co-parent the children peacefully.”
“I hope our marriage works out,” she said. “But I realize that there is no way to fix it.. Kanye disagrees, but at least he seems to have realized that I want to end the marriage–even if he doesn’t. So, your Honor, I ask the court to put me back in single person status so Starting the healing process and enabling our family to move forward into this new chapter of our lives.”
