In the ongoing divorce proceedings between Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, a judge has granted Kardashian’s request to be ruled legally single.
According to People, the ruling comes three months after Kardashian requested her marital status be changed. Although West previously challenged Kardashian’s request, the rapper did not attend the bifurcation hearing held on Tuesday.
Kardashian filed for divorce after nearly seven years of marriage. She requested to be declared legally single in December 2021 and to have her maiden name restored.
In recent court documents obtained by People, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star revealed, “I very much desire to be divorced. I have asked Kanye to keep our divorce private, but he has not done so. Kanye has been putting a lot of misinformation regarding our private family matters and co-parenting on social media which has created emotional distress.”
“I believe that the court terminating our marital status will help Kanye to accept that our marital relationship is over and to move forward on a better path which will assist us in peacefully co-parenting our children,” Kardashian wrote.
“While I wish our marriage would have succeeded, I have come to the realization that there is no way to repair our marriage,” the mom of four added. “Kanye does not agree but at least it appears that he has come to the realization that I want to end our marriage, even if he does not. I ask that the Court restore me to the status of a single person so that I can begin the healing process and so that our family can begin the healing process and move forward in this new chapter in our lives.”
