The 40-year-old TV star filed documents on Friday, according to TMZ, through her lawyer Laura Wasser, but the date of separation was not listed.
The reality TV star and makeup guru is asking for joint legal and physical custody of their four young children: North, seven, Saint, five, Chicago, three, Psalm, 21 months.
“It’s gotten to the point where they haven’t spent time together as a married couple in months,” an insider shared with E! News. “They’ve seen each other for the sake of the kids but have been living separately. Kim knows the marriage is over. She’s known for a while.”
At the center of their relationship, however, remained the children. As the insider put it, “They are still a family and they come together for the kids.”
Kim and Kanye were in marriage counselling as they ‘tried to work through things’.
A source said of their counselling sessions: ‘Divorce has been discussed, but Kim wants more than anything for their relationship to work. There wasn’t anything specific that happened that led them to this point … They are 100 percent aligned when it comes to the kids.’
A source previously claimed Kim has accepted she and Kanye are just ‘not on the same page’ anymore and she is focusing her energy on her future.
