Kim Kardashian officially filed legal papers to end her 7-year marriage to musician, Kanye West.

The reality TV star's attorney, Laura Wasser, filed divorce documents at a California courthouse this week.

According to TMZ, Kim, 40, is seeking joint legal and physical custody of their four children - daughters North, 7, and Chicago, 3, and sons Saint, 5, and Psalm, who turns 2 in May.

Sources claim the split is amicable, and the pair is committed to co-parenting together. But other reports suggest Kim changed the locks at her Calabasas mansion after Kanye packed up and moved to Wyoming in 2019.

Kanye, 43, was still wearing his wedding band this week. Sources say he is not handling the divorce well.

Kim and Kanye are reportedly prepared to honor their prenuptial agreement, and are already working on a property settlement.

The date of separation has been listed as "to be determined" on the court documents, but the couple's marriage is said to have been on the rocks for some time.

Representatives for the stars have yet to comment on the news.

It's Kim's third failed marriage - she was briefly wed to basketball player Kris Humphries and songwriter Damon Thomas.

Kanye West is being sued in federal court for failing to pay nearly 1,000 members of his Sunday Service revivals.

Kanye faces two class action lawsuits totaling $30 million in penalties for failure to pay members and crew of his Sunday Service revivals, according to multiple reports.

Complicating the rap producer's legal troubles is the fact that he obtained $2 million in federal Covid-19 relief funds in 2020 -- specifically to pay his performers and crew.

According to Page Six, the two cases were filed in Los Angeles separately for 500 performers and over 300 crew members.

Lawyers representing the plaintiffs have asked them to reach out to others who provided services for Kanye, but did not get paid.

"They've got hundreds of people on board already," a source told the UK Sun newspaper. "They're talking to many, many others who want to be a part of it. People are very upset how they were treated, saying it's their worst experience," the source added.

You may have heard about the video that leaked of Kanye West yelling at Chance The Rapper in a Wyoming studio while recording his upcoming DONDA album.

According to other bloggers, Kanye was upset about Chance's opinion about a song. The video went viral after it was posted to YouTube on Jan. 23.

The leaked video had a "YZY TV" watermark in a corner -- suggesting that it was part of a documentary about the making of the DONDA album, according to London's Daily Mail, which uploaded the video.

In the video, Kanye is seen in a room with a few men. He climbs over a piece of furniture while yelling, "Josh! Where's the bass?"

Later, he is seen whispering in Chance's ear, and in other scene, he goes off on Chance, telling him "Sit yo a** down and listen to the album or leave!"

Roc-A-Fella co-founder Damon Dash, who produced the documentary, shared his views about the confrontation between the two Chicago natives.

"You know my thing is just get rid of the people that are triggering, get them out of here and let's just have fun being creative. So, you know, Kanye is finishing his album."

Damon says, despite the blowup in the leaked video, the two artists remain good friends.

"Chance, honestly, because of what he was reading [about Kanye's mental issues], he came through just to check [on] Kanye. You know, again, Kanye deals with his [mental] issues at all times. They got into it, but they worked it out," he said.

"At the end of the day, Chance was there just to be a friend.”

Kanye moved to Wyoming in 2019 to get away from his estranged wife, Kim Kardashian, who seemed to be enjoying the gossip surrounding the video leak.

She shared a photo of herself covered in frosting, which she captioned, "Don't be messy."

No one knows if Kim was referring to her estranged husband yelling at Chance, or the fans who are commenting about the video leak.

Chance The Rapper first appeared on Kanye's 2016 hit "Ultralight Beam" off his critically acclaimed album The Life of Pablo.

Many say 2016 was the last year that Kanye released meaningful music.

Kanye West just wants to put his divorce behind him as he begins his journey as a single father of four.

The "College Dropout" rapper is reportedly "less than thrilled" that his estranged wife Kim Kardashian plans to air their dirty laundry on the final season of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians."

According to Us Weekly, the upcoming final season of the E! reality show, which premiered in 2007, will feature an extensive breakdown of their amicable divorce.

But West, 43, is "less than thrilled" about it, the insider exclusively tells Us Weekly.

A rep for Kim, 40, recently confirmed reports that the couple had separated and were living in two different states.

"She will continue to focus on her business empire," the insider told Us. "Kim has been in individual counseling and is at peace with where her life is headed."

But another source reported that Kim and Kanye abandoned marriage counseling because it wasn't working out.

Kim began meeting with divorce attorneys in July, but she and Kanye worked hard to stay together for their children, North, 7, Saint, 5, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 20 months.

The TikTok personality who spread that rumor about Kanye West (left) dating makeup guru Jeffree Star (right) now admits she made up the whole affair for 'likes' and 'follows'.

TikTok influencer Ava Louise got the ball rolling when she dropped a video claiming she had insider information about Kanye and Jeffree's secret romance.

The rumor went viral because the left-wing blogosphere is hungry for reports about bisexual celebrities hooking up -- particularly Black bisexual stars.

There is an unfounded theory that Black people are more homophobic than any race or ethnicity on earth.

Another reason the rumor circulated so widely is Kim Kardashian, 40, is filing for divorce from Kanye, 43, who checked out of their marriage about 2 years ago and moved to rural Wyoming for good in 2019.

Jeffree, 35, trolled his 14.2 million followers by sharing photos from Wyoming and declaring he was "ready for Sunday Service."

Sunday Service is a hip-hop worship service led by Kanye to promote his projects and political aspirations.

After the rumor was disputed by Kanye's camp and by Jeffree, Louise, 22, returned to TikTok this week, saying:

"I'm not even getting sued, I made this entire scandal up. There's literally not one bit of truth to anything I have said. I just tricked the entire world into talking about me again because I was on a lot of Adderall and bored."

Louise previously earned an invitation to the Dr. Phil show after she recorded herself licking a toilet for the "coronavirus challenge" last year.

She lost followers after she claimed she'd tested positive for the coronavirus.

She added. "We all had fun though didn't we? You're welcome for the memes."

Now that Kanye West is on the brink of divorce from socialite Kim Kardashian, men are crawling out of the woodwork trying to claim him.

TikTok personality Cole Carrigan, who claimed Kanye arranged a hotel hookup with him, is now backtracking.

Page Six reported on Friday that Cole, a makeup artist by trade with over 350,000 followers, claimed Kanye's former bodyguard, Steve Stanulis, arranged a hotel rendezvous with Kanye at a W Hotel in November.

But Cole backtracked after he received a cease-and-desist from Stanulis's lawyer, who slammed Cole's allegations as "completely and entirely false."

The attorney added that Stanulis, "denies, in the strongest terms, all of these false and defamatory statements," and said Stanulis had never heard of Cole.

On Sunday, Cole posted a video in which he apologized to Kanye and Kim for making up a story about them for 'likes' and 'follows'. He claimed he manufactured the story because Kanye "voted for Trump."

Noting that lawsuits are very expensive to defend, Cole said:

"In order to for me to stay out of court and not get sued, I have to issue an apology to Mr. West and Kim Kardashian West. So hi, Kim, if you're watching this, I am so sorry, I honestly did this for the simple fact that your husband voted for Trump, and we simply can't have that clownery in America, so you're welcome."

He added: "Second of all, I hope this doesn't ruin the chances of me getting on the KKW p.r. list, because I've been dying for those contour sticks."

KKW is Kim's makeup line.

Jeffree Star addressed the "funny" rumor that he slept with Kanye West and caused the breakup of the troubled rapper's marriage to Kim Kardashian.

In a lengthy YouTube video, Jeffree, 35, said he woke up on January 7 to a plethora of phone calls and text messages that he's "sleeping" with Kanye, 43.

The androgynous beauty guru took to YouTube on Thursday to dismiss the "dumbest sh*t I think I've ever read in my life."

The makeup artist who recently moved from California to Casper, Wyoming, said he's "never hung out with” Kanye, whose Cody, Wyoming ranch is a short 21-minute flight away.

Jeffree blamed Kanye's mother-in-law, Kris Jenner, of orchestrating the whole thing.

"Let me just say this one time for any news outlet, I like very tall men. Me and Kanye have never hung out and this whole thing is really funny," Jeffree said.

"So, I guess if this is the start to my New Year, then Happy New Year. I really can't and if Kris Jenner orchestrated this whole thing, Happy New Year sweetie girl," he said, before adding that "Jeffree Star is single and I've never slept with Kanye."

There's an old saying that goes: "Every rumor has a kernel of truth to it."

But a source close to Kanye West's camp said the rumor that he's in a same-sex relationship with beauty influencer Jeffree Star is just flat out false.

Jeffrey, 35, fueled the rumors last month when he posted a photo of himself in Casper, Wyoming, along with the caption: "It's Mrs. Wyoming to you... #jeffreestar #casperwyoming #wyoming."

Casper is about a 3-hour drive or 21-minute flight from Kanye's ranch in Cody, WY.

After teasing his 14 million followers with more photos from Wyoming, Jeffree sent the gossipmongers into a frenzy when he shared an IG image of himself wearing a pink bathrobe, along with the caption, "I'm ready for Sunday Service."

A source close with Kanye and his estranged wife Kim Kardashian told E! News that "there is absolutely no truth to Jeffree and Kanye rumors".

The rumors that Kanye and Jeffrey were an item were started by TikToker Ava Louise, who claimed she had insider information.

Ava teased that Kanye left his wife and moved way out to Wyoming in the middle of nowhere because he was ashamed of his true sexual identity.

"i can't say WHO cuz he’ll sue me hint hint but it's part of the reason Kanye's so religious now it's his self hatred .... my source is legit I promiss [sic]"

Kanye and Kim are reportedly in counseling to help repair their broken bonds of matrimony. But it's going to be tough going because both are seeing other people.

Kim, 40, is reportedly dating CNN reporter Van Jones, 52, who can't stop gushing about her to his friends.

Van met Kim at the White House when she asked President Donald Trump to pardon Alice Johnson in 2018.

Kim has been studying law, and she hopes that Van, who graduated from Yale Law School, will help put her on the fast-track to obtaining a law degree.

Van reportedly told friends that Kim will make "a great lawyer" because she is "incredibly persuasive and persistent."

Jeffrey responded to a Wendy Williams segment about the rumors on Thursday.

"If she only knew about the actual rappers who have visited my mouth. Taking that sh*t to the grave miss thing."

Rumors are running rampant that Kanye West invited influencer and makeup artist Jeffrey Star to his Wyoming ranch -- and Jeffree never left.

Kanye is reportedly "sad, but okay” while he waits for his estranged wife, Kim Kardashian, to serve him with divorce papers.

Jeffrey, 35, fueled romance rumors last month when he posted a photo of himself in Casper, Wyoming, along with the caption: "It's Mrs. Wyoming to you... #jeffreestar #casperwyoming #wyoming."

Casper is about a 3-hour drive or 21-minute flight from Kanye's ranch in Cody, WY.

Kanye, 43, purchased his sprawling ranch with its 10-bedroom mansion with 2 underground garages for $14 million in 2019. That's around the time Kanye emotionally checked out of his "cold" marriage with Kim.

Jeffrey left no doubt whose bed he shares when he posted an IG image of himself wearing a pink bathrobe, along with the caption, "I'm ready for Sunday Service."

He included an emoji of a pigeon that is a symbol for Rest in peace (RIP). Some IG followers speculated that his use of the RIP emoji signified the death of Kanye and Kim's marriage. The post drew over 20,000 comments.

Kanye and Jeffrey have a lot in common: Jeffree prefers his chocolate dark, while Kanye prefers androgynous women who could easily pass for men in drag.

Kanye was raised in Chicago and Atlanta by his single mom, Donda West, who died following a botched breast reduction procedure in 2007. The aspiring rapper's dad, Ray West, was a former Black Panther in the 1960s and a photojournalist for The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Donda and ray divorced in 1980 when Kanye was only 3. In her memoir Raising Kanye: Life Lessons from the Mother of a Hip-Hop Superstar, Donda recalled how hesitant Ray was to raise a child.

"I don't know if I can be a good father. I don't know if it's in me. That's why I don't want to do it," she quoted him in her book. Donda and little Kanye moved to Chicago while Ray stated in Atlanta.

The youngster didn't have a strong father figure in his life to teach him how to be a man growing up. He struggled with mental illness as an adult, which resulted in at least two emergency admissions to mental wards.

Kanye had difficulty maintaining stable relationships with androgynous women, such as bisexual socialite Amber Rose, 37, who spread rumors about Kanye's sexual preferences in an explicit tweet.

Page Six reported this week that celebrity divorce attorney Laura Wasser, who handled Kim's previous divorce from NBA star Kris Humphries, is drawing up the papers for Kim's divorce from Kanye.

Wasser also negotiated mega producer Dr. Dre's temporary spousal support check for $2 million to his estranged wife, Nicole Young, that will be paid on Monday, Jan. 11.

Kim is reportedly delaying the divorce proceedings until she figures out how to break the news about daddy's new girl/boyfriend to their four children.

According to multiple sources, the children, North, 7, Saint, 5, Chicago, 2, and 1-year-old Psalm, have already met Kim's new man, CNN reporter Van Jones.

Kanye West is reportedly "sad, but okay" over his impending divorce from socialite Kim Kardashian.

According to PEOPLE, a source close to the couple says Kim is delaying filing divorce papers to figure out a way to protect the couple's four children during the divorce process.

"He knows that she's done. She has had enough, and she told him that she wants some space to figure out her future," a source told PEOPLE, adding that Kanye is waiting to be served with the divorce papers.

Meanwhile, the single mom has dropped subtle hints of her single status all along. She recently shared a photo of her naked ring finger as well as a sleepover with another divorcee, La La Anthony.

Your auntie told you last year, Kim and Kanye have been living separately for at least a year with Kanye spending the majority of his time in Wyoming while she was in Calabasas with their 4 children, North, 7, Saint, 5, Chicago, 2, and 1-year-old Psalm.

Kim, who kept divorce maven Laura Wasser, on Speed dial for years, began seriously considering filing months ago during the Covid-19 lockdowns.

Kim and Kanye tied the knot on May 24, 2014 after dating for several years.
