Kanye West has finally answered Kim Kardashian's divorce petition.
In his court documents, the rapper filed for joint legal and physical custody of the couple's four children, just as Kim did, TMZ said. The custody arrangement wasn't expected to be dramatic, as sources close to the duo had suspected that they would have an amicable agreement in regard to their kids.
What joint custody means in their case is still yet to be determined, as it doesn't necessarily mean that they will have a 50/50 split. In fact, the likelihood, the report claims, is that Kim will have the children for the lion's share of the time.
Both Kim and Kanye have committed to co-parenting.
Further, the former duo is lockstep in that neither wants spousal support, and both said they should pay their own legal fees. They also signed a prenuptial agreement, which neither plans to contest. Ironically enough, the new filing comes less than a week after Forbes declared Kim a billionaire (Kanye was declared a billionaire in 2020 by Forbes).
The "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star filed for divorce back in February after months of speculation that their marriage was hanging on by a thread. Some reputable media outlets said the duo rarely communicated in the months leading up to the split.
Although the divorce is very high-profile considering the celebrity status of Kim and Kanye, it's believed that the two will hash everything out privately and file a settlement agreement.
