Kanye West 'requests joint custody of children & asks court NOT to give Kim Kardashian spousal support' in $2B divorce

KANYE West has reportedly asked for joint custody in his divorce from Kim Kardashian but requested the court NOT give her spousal support. 

The former couple have a lot at stake with the split as they have four young children together and a massive $2 BILLION fortune to divide. 

The 43-year-old Yeezy mogul filed for both joint legal and physical custody of their four kids, according to TMZ.

However, the outlet adds that North, 7, Saint, 5, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 1, will most likely live with their mother for the majority of the time.

While the reality star has remained in Los Angeles with the kids, Kanye has been living at his Wyoming ranch thousands of miles away over the past couple years.

As both Kim, 40, and Kanye committed to co-parenting, they are said to be working out the specific details privately and will get it approved by the court.

The Grammy winner asked that he not be accountable for any spousal support – which Kim has reportedly agreed to.



In the latest documents, Kanye also says each of them should pay their own legal fees.

The Sun exclusively revealed in February that Kim and Kanye will split their combined $2.1billion fortune evenly.

While each have earned a stagger net worth, Kanye is the richer of the pair – with an alleged $1.3billion thanks to his Yeezy and footwear brand empire as well as his music, Forbes reported.

The financial magazine reported this month that the SKIMS founder is now also a billionaire.

Her wealth is also thanks to "cash from reality television and endorsement deals, and a number of smaller investments."


After she launched KKW Beauty in 2017, she quickly expanded from contour kits to eyeshadows, concealers, lipsticks and fragrances.

A year later, the lawyer-in-training was reportedly bringing in about $100million in revenue from the company.

Kim sold 20% of KKW Beauty Coty in 2020 in a $200million deal which valued the company at $2billion.

Due to this figure, Kim's 72 per cent stake in the company is thought to be worth about $500million.

Elsewhere, Kim launched her shapewear line SKIMS in 2019 owns a majority stake in the company, which hasn't revealed its revenue.



A source told Forbes, however, about a transaction that reportedly values the brand at $500million.

The outlet estimates that her stake in the label is worth $225million, which is enough to list her as a billionaire.

The mother-of-four's fortune is up from $780million last October when it was last valued by the publication.

She also has been earning millions ever year from filming Keeping Up With The Kardashians – which is currently airing its final season.

Cameras have followed Kim in her bid to “save” the marriage during Kanye’s short-lived campaign for the US presidency and the couple’s attempts at marriage counseling.

Despite her best efforts, Kim filed for divorce from Kanye in February after six years of marriage.

According to the insider, a prenup was already arranged to handle the pair's massive $2BILLION fortune and neither party is contesting the agreement.

At the time of filing, it was added they've made it so far along in the legal proceedings, the couple – who got married in 2014 – is in the stages of reaching a property settlement agreement.
