Kim Kardashian West has filed for divorce from Kanye West after 6 1/2 years of marriage.
Sources familiar with the filing confirmed that Kardashian filed for divorce in Los Angeles Superior Court.
The impending end of “Kimye” brings a close to one of the most famous celebrity unions of the 21st century, between a reality TV superstar and a hip hop and fashion mega-mogul.
They have four young children: North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm. The two married in Italy in 2014.
It was the first marriage for the 43-year-old West, and the third for the 40-year-old Kardashian.
The couple began dating in 2012 and had their first child in 2013. West proposed later that year using the giant screen at the empty waterfront ballpark of the San Francisco Giants, and the two married May 24, 2014, in a ceremony at a Renaissance fortress in Florence, Italy.
