Wyoming officially has a new (and mega-famous) bachelor, because Kanye West is back on the market after six years of marriage.
On Friday, Kim Kardashian West filed for divorce from the rapper, with whom she shares four children ranging in age from seven years to 20 months. Gossip website TMZ obtained the court documents.
No date of separation was listed in the filing.
This was the first marriage for West and the third for Kardashian. The two met in the 2000s, but finally made it official in 2012 after West professed his love for the socialite in the song “Cold.”
The two have reportedly been living separate for months, with West taking up residence at one of his mansions in Cody and the socialite staying in Los Angeles.
The culmination of the divorce will likely be a central storyline on the final season of the reality series “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” on which West regularly makes appearances alongside the four children.
West has exhibited bizarre behavior in the last year, such as throwing his hat into the presidential race months last summer (far too late to make any headway), and even admitted in a speech that he and Kardashian considered aborting their eldest daughter.
Unsurprisingly, West didn’t win the presidential election, but teased a 2024 run on Twitter, the last post he has made on the social media website.
The rapper has also been diagnosed with bipolar disorder in recent years.
