"With a healing heart I post this..... I am sorry for my sins and sorry for anything I've ever done to anyone rather I'm aware of it or not I just hope you find it in your heart to forgive me..... I have not met my BEST self yet and I know it.... I can't wait to meet the NEW ME!!!!! This single life hits different especially since I could of never ever seen this coming...... Ever.... Back to the basics.... What's your name? Where you from? Who yo momma nem? What you do? What's your credit score? Jesus or Nah? Lol #TheVibes"

The Bible says an apology cannot stand alone. It must be coupled with true contrition, repentance and humility. "The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise."

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.

Dr. Dre and a mystery woman were spotted arriving for a romantic dinner at BOA Steakhouse in West Hollywood. The couple was swarmed by paparazzi as they arrived and again when they departed the restaurant.

BACKGRID

The 20-something beauty was scantily dressed in a sheer lace bra with a houndstooth coat and matching leggings, with houndstooth matching heels and a black face mask.

BACKGRID

Dre wore a black hoodie, black jogging pants, white sneakers, a black ball cap and a black mask.

Dre's estranged wife Nicole Young wants to examine the financial records of 3 of Dre's ex-girlfriends to determine how much cash he spent on them while he was married to her.

Nicole says one of the women bought a $2.15 million house with cash in 2019, and she wants to know if Dre provided the cash for the home purchase.

In documents obtained by TMZ, Nicole claims the women's lawyer is trying to delay their depositions until the validity of her prenup is decided by a judge.

Dr. Dre agreed to pay Young $293,306 monthly until a judge rules on the validity of their prenup, according to TMZ. In addition, he gave her a $2 million one-time payment from his hospital bed when he reportedly suffered a brain aneurysm. The money was for temporary support and she is responsible for paying her attorney's fees.

If you recall, Dre has an ironclad prenup that Nicole wasn't aware of until she filed for divorce in the summer of 2020 after 24 years of marriage.

Nicole claims Dre ripped up their prenup in front of her a few months after they initially tied the knot. Nicole says the delay in seeking depositions from Dre's ex-girlfriends could potentially affect her spousal support.

Nicole's lawyers say any money that flowed from Dre's bank accounts to his extramarital affairs would be community property and Nicole presumably would be entitled to half of the other woman's mansion. Which means she could evict the woman from the premises.

There is also a rumor that Dre and the other woman have a child together -- which explains the extravagant home purchase.

Dre and Nicole share two adult children - son Truice Young, 24, and daughter Truly Young, 20. He also has a plethora of children from previous relationships.

Kenya Moore's long distance husband Marc Daly filed for divorce during her 50th anniversary celebration.

Like Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, Kenya and Marc lived in separate states for most of their marriage. Kenya lived and worked in Atlanta, while Marc operated a restaurant in New York.

The couple share a daughter, Brooklyn Daly, who lived most of the time with her mother in Atlanta.

Despite the miles between them, Kenya and Marc tried to make their relationship seem normal for their daughter's sake.

In a statement obtained by The Root Marc writes:

After recently attending mediation, Kenya and I have agreed to end our marriage. I will always have great care for her and look forward to amicably continuing to co-parent our daughter Brooklyn with an abundance of love and wisdom.

As always, in addition to perpetual self-improvement, my primary focus will continue to be helping the underserved and people of color in Brooklyn to recover from the negative impact of the COVID - 19 pandemic.

This focus will take shape through using my restaurant as a 'Community Hub' where positive and diverse perspectives on important topics such as economic empowerment, social activism and political engagement can be highlighted in a safe and productive forum.

I'm blessed to be a positive change agent for not just my family but also my community.

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."

MediaPunch / BACKGRID

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.

Dr. Dre's estranged wife Nicole Young is making serious allegations of spousal abuse while he's laid up in an intensive care unit.

According to PEOPLE, Nicole, 51, alleges that Dr, born Andre Young, "held a gun to my head" twice in 2000 and 2001, that he "punched me in the head/face" in 1999 and 200 and that he "kicked down a door" while she hid "from his rage" in 2016, among other instances of abuse.

"Andre has verbally and emotionally decimated my personhood to the extent that I currently suffer from post-traumatic stress syndrome," she said in documents, filed in the Superior Court of California.

In his response, Dre reportedly told the court that "at no time did I ever abuse Nicole or threaten her physical safety." He called the allegations a "blatant lie" — and that she never called the police during their marriage.

The 55-year-old Compton native is currently in an ICU at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angles, after suffering a ruptured aneurysm in his brain in December.

The rap producer updated fans on his condition on Jan. 5, saying he was "doing great."

Rapper-turned-actor Ice-T, born Tracy Lauren Marrow, also gave an update on Dre's condition, amid reports that the beloved music mogul suffered paralysis on one side of his body.

"Just talked to the homie @drdre," the "Law & Order SVU" star wrote on Instagram. "He's going good and hopefully he'll be home soon.. But let's keep him in our prayers for a full recovery."

There are unconfirmed reports that Dre's family members suspect "foul play" because Dre worked out in the gym several times a week and was in good health before he fell ill.

One family member suggested Dre was "poisoned" with anticoagulants, a common ingredient in rat poison that causes excessive bleeding, strokes, anemia, and death in rats.

The family member said the rat poison was possibly introduced into his food, beverages, or sprayed in the air at the gym where he worked out.

Dre's security detail has been increased while he is in the hospital.

Dre authorized $2 million in spousal support to cover Nicole's expenses through April while he recovers in rehab following his discharge from the hospital.

The court also ordered Nicole to cover her own security expenses until April 14.
