The latest update in the tumultuous divorce of the West’s came on Friday when Kanye finally responded to Kim’s request to be named legally single.
Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from Kanye West on February 19, 2021, a year from today. The documents cited, “Irreconcilable differences have led to the irremediable breakdown of the marriage, and there is no possibility of saving the marriage through counselling or other means”.
Throughout Kanye’s very public attempts for reconciliation the Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s star has remained firm on dissolving their marriage.
“I need you to run right back to me,” sang Kanye at the Free Larry Hoover event in Los Angeles. “More specifically, Kimberly.” Just a day after West remixed his song “Runaway”, on December 10, Kim filed a request for bifurcation.
The court request petitioned the court to declare her legally single and restore her father’s last name while the pair continue to settle issues of custody and shared assets.
Kanye had yet to respond to the request until now. The opposition documents filed on Friday stated, “Kim’s motion should be denied without prejudice so that Kim can refile it with the mandatory corrections and requested conditions set forth in the proposed judgment. Alternatively, a hearing regarding these additional conditions should be set.”
Kanye’s lawyer set forth three conditions in order to move forward with Kim’s request however, Kim has allegedly rejected them.
The first condition is that if one of them dies, any money owed to one another gets reimbursed. The second condition is that Kim is prevented from transferring assets out of any shared trust. And finally, and perhaps the most interesting, if Kim were to remarry she’d have to waive their marital privilege pending a final custody decision.
The documents read, “If status is terminated now without this condition then a barrier to obtaining evidence regarding parenting and custody will arise if Kim remarries before the case is concluded.”
