The court ordered Kanye West to pay Kim Kardashian $200,000 a month as alimony as part of their divorce agreement. West and Kardashian will share joint custody of their four children. Kardashian filed for divorce in 2021, after 8 years with West, who recently changed his name to “Ye.”
As early as last March, the two became legally single, so Kim removed the name West from her last name. However, issues concerning the division of the property and custody of the children were resolved only last Tuesday in court.
According to the documents submitted, both parties will have to consult each other on major decisions related to the welfare of their children. Expenses related to the safety of the children, their schools and the colleges they will attend in the future, will be shared between the parents. In addition, West will pay $200,000 a month in child support to Kim, because the children will spend most of their time at their mother’s house.
The Kardashian-West couple have four children: 9-year-old North, 6-year-old Saint, 4-year-old Chicago and 3-year-old Pasalem. While Kim worked vigorously to finalize the divorce and officially say goodbye to West, the rapper expressed opposition to the separation and even attacked Kim’s partner, her family and herself on social media.
The decision was made against the background of the recent storms in which West was involved. Huge companies he worked with cut ties with him following his postings on social networks that provoked a lot of public criticism, partly because they were tainted with anti-Semitism. West, who testified himself in the past that he suffers from depression, lost the huge contracts he had with brands such as Adidas, Gap and Balenciaga.
