Kim Kardashian optimistic about 'peacefully co-parenting' with Kanye West amidst turmoil
Kim Kardashian believes that a divorce is necessary for Kanye to accept their 'marital relationship is over and to move forward on a better path'
Despite Kanye West's recent social media rants, Kim Kardashian remains optimistic about a successful co-parenting relationship with her ex-husband. Kim, 41, filed for divorce from her husband of seven years in February of last year. North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm are their four children. The star has said, “Kanye has been putting a lot of misinformation regarding our private matters and co-parenting on social media which has created emotional distress.”
In her new court filing, Kim also stated, “I very much desire to be divorced. I have asked Kanye to keep our divorce private, but he has not done so. 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.”
According to TMZ, Kim recently stated that she doesn't want their conflict to affect their children. Kanye West, 44, has slammed Kim and her current boyfriend Pete Davidson, 28, in a series of tweets, some of which he has since deleted. Meanwhile, Kim also filed a new court request on Wednesday (February 23) urging the court to disregard his efforts to delay their divorce. Kardashian's lawyers claimed it was evident that West was aiming to postpone the proceedings and cause harm as a result.
The new filing emphasizes that "since filing for divorce, Mr. West, by his actions, has made it clear that he does not accept that the parties' marital relationship is over," and hoped that once they were granted divorce, Kanye would be forced to accept that the marriage was over. This would help them transition into "peacefully co-parenting."
"While I wish our marriage would have succeeded, I have come to the realization that there is no way to repair our marriage. Kanye does not agree but at least it appears that he has come to the realization that I want to end our marriage, even if he does not. I ask that the Court restore me to the status of a single person so that I can begin the healing process and so that our family can begin the healing process and move forward in this new chapter in our lives,” Kim remarked.
