Kim Kardashian asks court to move forward on divorce from Ye

LOS ANGELES – Kim Kardashian has asked a court to ignore Ye’s attempts to slow down their divorce and end their marriage as soon as possible.

She filed papers in Los Angeles Superior Court on Wednesday evening saying that Ye, who legally changed his name from Kanye West, in his own recent filing, began adding conditions to the divorce that would mean changing the parents’ prenuptial agreement. couples, and seeks protections that are useless and based on lies.

Kardashian said it was clear he was just trying to delay and causing damage by doing so.

“Mr. West, by his actions, made it clear that he did not accept that the parties’ marital relationship was terminated,” the court filing reads. “Mr. West circulated the parties’ private communications and misinformation about personal family matters and co-parenting on social media, which caused emotional distress.”

In December, Kardashian, as is common in messy divorces, asked the court to declare her legally single before custody and property details were settled.

In a personal statement attached to her Wednesday filing, she said a judge declaring the two divorced could help her move on.

“I really want to divorce. I asked Kanye to keep our divorce private, but he didn’t,” Kardashian said. “I believe that the court ending our marital status will help Kanye accept that our marital relationship is over and move on to a better path. which will help us co-parent our children peacefully.
