Kim Kardashian has filed for divorce from Kanye West after seven years of marriage, TMZ reports, with their sources adding that it is an amicable split.

As part of the settlement, Kim wants legal and physical custody of their four children, with sources telling the news outlet that Kanye is happy with this arrangement and is committed to co-parenting his children with Kim.

The couple has a prenup which neither party is contesting, and sources have told TMZ that they are close to reaching an agreement about their property.

Per Buzzfeed News, a spokesperson for the Los Angeles County Superior Court stated that the divorce documents were filed on Friday (February 19), and that they did not list a date of separation; instead, it is registered as to be determined.

The papers were filed by celebrity divorce lawyer Laura Wasserdo, after Page Six reported last month that Kim had hired her.

The announcement comes after Kanye hit headlines throughout 2020 with a series of eccentric and offbeat public displays of behavior - including his announcement that he would be running for the Oval Office in the 2020 US presidential election.

At one "presidential rally" in July, the rapper told the crowd that Kim had considered aborting their then-unborn child North.

He then went on to take aim at the Kardashian-Jenner family on Twitter, referring to its matriarch, Kris, as "Kris Jong-Un."

After fans raised concerns over Kanye's bipolar disorder last year, Kim took to Instagram in July to address her husband's mental health.

Writing in July, she described her West as "a brilliant but complicated person, who on top of the pressures of being an artist and a black man, ... experienced the painful loss of his mother, and has to deal with the pressure and isolation that is heightened by his bi-polar disorder."
