- Kardashian has been publically seeing Pete Davidson since November 2021.
Kim Kardashian is probably feeling a wave of relief now that the courts have ruled in her favour! The TV personality and SKIMS founder filed to be legally single amid the messy divorce with Kanye West, and they've agreed.
Kanye West skips court
On Tuesday, the court proceedings began as Kim Kardashian filed a request to be granted the opportunity to be legally single, which essentially means despite West's pushback on legal divorce documents, she can still begin the process.
Although Kim Kardashian was present at the court proceeding, West didn't show up. During her plea to the judge, Kardashian wishes to regain her full name without her estranged husband's attached.
Furthermore, being "legally single" will provide Kardashian with the opportunity to control her assets as per the agreement in their prenup that West is allegedly attempting to change.
In documents obtained by TMZ, Kardashian made a plea to the court explaining her situation, and why she has been pushing for haste in regards to the divorce.
"I very much desire to be divorced," the statement read. "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."
Despite Kanye openly admitting he "wants his wife back", his behaviour towards the makeup mogul has been less than kind.
"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," she continued in her statement.
She further explained noting, "While I wish our marriage would have succeeded, I have come to the realization that there is no way to repair our marriage. 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."
Their divorce comes months after West publically broke down over the decision to almost abort their now 8-year-old daughter, North, during his run for president.
Additionally, West since has attacked Kardashian and her new boyfriend in a slew of Instagram posts, which he has since deleted.
Kardashian and Davidson still went out for Valentine's Day amid all the drama and were spotted multiple times holding hands and looking happy as ever. Go Kim!
