Kanye West will be paying $200,000 monthly in child support to Kim Kardashian
Kim Kardashian and Ye have settled their divorce, according to court documents filed on Tuesday, avoiding a trial scheduled for the beginning of next month.
Ye, also known as Kanye West, must pay Kardashian, a former reality show host, $200,000 per month in child support, according to paperwork submitted by the couple’s attorneys.
According to papers filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, the couple has agreed to share custody of their children.
A judge granted Kardashian’s plea in March and declared the couple legally single, terminating their eight-year marriage. However, a trial over property and custody was set to begin on December 14.
These two are parents of four children, ranging in age from three to nine.
According to the terms of the proposed settlement, Kardashian and Ye will each pay half of the costs associated with providing private security and private education for their children.
The settlement also states that they will each be responsible for their own bills. The couple established a prenuptial agreement and kept their respective assets separate.
They started seeing each other in 2012, and in 2013, they welcomed their first kid. Later that year, West used the large screen at the San Francisco Giants’ vacant waterfront ballpark to pop the question. They wed on May 24, 2014, in a ceremony held at a Renaissance stronghold in Florence, Italy.
When Kardashian initially filed for divorce in February of 2021, it appeared like the two were headed for an amicable separation with mutually agreeable terms.
Neither party spoke publicly about their breakup until Ye began attacking Kardashian, her family, and ex-boyfriend Pete Davidson on social media in January.
He felt he was being shut out of important parenting decisions and was never invited to their kids’ birthday parties.
Judge Steve Cochran quickly dismissed Ye’s technical difficulties and requests, including his request to interrogate Kardashian’s future spouse under oath. Ye has already fired two lawyers since filed for divorce.
The payment is the latest blow to Ye’s already tattered reputation after several companies severed connections with him following his harsh and anti-Semitic comments.
Nicholas Salick, his current attorney, did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the agreement.
