Over a year after filing for her first-ever divorce from Kanye West, Kim Kardashian has finally been granted her wish as she has now been legally declared a single woman, by a Los Angeles Superior Court.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West started dating back in 2012 and officially married as husband and wife in May 2014. They both share four children together: North, 8, Saint, 6, Chicago, 4, and Psalm, 2½.
Both Kim and West were not present at Wednesday, March 2, 2022, court hearing, they were represented by their legal divorce attorneys.
The American media personality, socialite, model, businesswoman, actress, and reality star, Kimberly Noel Kardashian attended the court hearing virtually via videoconference, represented in person by a prominent divorce lawyer, Laura Wasser who was in court.
American rapper, record producer, and fashion designer, Kanye West, who is now known as Ye was also not present in the court room, he was also just like Kim, represented by Samantha Spector, another well-known Hollywood family attorney after he fired his attorney, Chris Melcher a day to the Wednesday hearing.
Kim Kardashian Legally Declared Single
Kanye tried his very best to object Kim’s single status request with three conditions, out of the three conditions, two were denied while only one was granted which is “any right to get reimbursement of money that’s supposed to be divided up will be preserved in case either of them dies“.
The other conditions are that Kim would not transfer any assets she had in trust, and if Kim remarries she would waive the “marital privilege.” That privilege means a new spouse would not have to testify about communications he had with her. The judge said nope to that. according to TMZ’s report.
At a hearing in Los Angeles Superior Court, Judge Steven Cochran who presided over the case granted Kim the request to get a divorce from West, which means that Kardashian’s legal name will immediately revert from “Kardashian West” to simply “Kardashian” signifying that she is now a single woman.
There are still complex issues to deal with which includes custody and division of assets.
The next hearing in the court case between the two superstars according to Judge Steven Cochran is set for August 2022.
