Reality TV star Kim Kardashian has filed for divorce from rapper Kanye West after almost seven years of marriage, her publicist said.


The mega-celebrity couple’s divorce proceedings come just weeks after US media reported the pair was living separately and going through counselling dealing with “regular relationship issues.”


Celebrity gossip site TMZ said the separation was “as amicable as a divorce can be.”


Kardashian, 40, is asking for joint custody of the couple’s four children, it added, with her lawyer Laura Wasser reportedly handing in the divorce papers Friday. Kardashian’s publicist confirmed the divorce filing, but did not provide further details.

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 recognisable couples.

But their union has been dogged for months by reports in the gossip press that their marriage was on the rocks as West has battled with mental health issues and launched an improbable and controversial foray into US politics. West, 43, has opened up about his struggles with bipolar disorder.
