Reality TV star Kim Kardashian’s marriage to Kanye West officially ended Wednesday when a Los Angeles judge finalized her divorce from the rapper now known as Ye.

Kardashian appeared before the court virtually but Ye was represented only by his lawyer, who brought no objection to the end of the marriage.

Ye had publicly fought the separation, including with social media posts imploring Kardashian to reconcile.
Kardashian filed for divorce last year after months of press reports about marital strife and as Ye battled with mental health issues.

“I very much desire to be divorced. I have asked Kanye to keep our divorce private, but he has not done so,” the 41-year-old Kardashian wrote in a declaration filed to the court last week. 

“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 added.

Kardashian and West have four children: eight-year-old daughter North, son Saint, six, daughter Chicago, four, and two-year-old son Psalm.

The pair, who began dating in 2012 and married in a lavish ceremony in Italy two years later, rapidly became one of the world’s most instantly recognizable couples.

It is the first divorce for Ye and the third for Kardashian, who came to fame with the US reality TV series Keeping Up with the Kardashians, which followed the lives of her family members in Los Angeles. She is now in a relationship with 28-year-old comedian and actor Pete Davidson.
