Reading Time: 2 minutes

The reason that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s are divorcing has been revealed.

In the famous ex couple’s divorce papers the Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s star, 40, cited “irreconcilable differences” as the motivation for ending her marriage of seven years to the 43-year-old rapper.

Her filing was viewed by The Sun and it also shows that Kim is seeking to have joint custody for their four children: North, seven, Saint, five, Chicago, three and one-year-old Psalm.

The glamorous business owner has also asked that the ability to award spousal support by either her or Kanye be terminated.


The couple’s divorce is believed to be amicable.

A source told People: “There is no drama between Kim and Kanye.

“Kim is mostly just disappointed that they couldn’t figure out how to stay married.

“But it takes two people to create a happy marriage.


“Kim has felt Kanye is not willing to do the hard work and compromise.”

A source explained to The Sun: “Kim had visited the idea of divorce so many times that she already had the paperwork drawn-up and ready to go, when she finally actually filed.

“The move came as a bit of a surprise to her family because they know how much she loves Kanye and knew she didn’t really want to go through with it. They all knew she felt she had no choice.

“Some closest to the family feel this isn’t Kim definitely calling it quits, this is more a strategic move to make Kanye wake-up and see that he could lose her if he doesn’t change.”


Kim is being represented by top divorce layer Laura Wasser, who has counted Christina Aguilera, Ryan Reynolds, and Ben Affleck among her clients.

And this isn’t Laura’s first time working with Kim as she was also hired to help with Kim’s divorce from ex-husband Kris Humphries. (OK!)
