Kim Kardashian Says Kanye West’s Instagram Posts Caused ‘Emotional Distress’
Kim Kardashian wants a judge to make her single ASAP … because Kanye West‘s Instagram posts are hurting her emotionally, and all she wants now is to move on and co-parent in a healthy manner.
In new court docs, obtained by TMZ, Kim says it very directly, “I very much desire to be divorced.” She tells the judge she’s asked Kanye to keep their divorce private, “but he has not done so,” and talks about Kanye’s barrage of social media posts about their relationship.
Kim says, “Kanye has been putting a lot of misinformation regarding our private matters and co-parenting on social media which has created emotional distress.”
As we’ve reported, Kanye’s accused Kim of kidnapping their daughter, Chicago, says she’s accused him of ordering a hit on her, and gone after her for allowing North to be on TikTok.
Kanye had also asked to prevent Kim from transferring assets out of any trust. Kim says that ridiculous — they have a prenup which keeps all their trusts and other assets separate, and Kim needs access to her trust to run her businesses. And, in the docs, Kanye’s lawyers recognize the prenup is valid.
She also notes Kanye’s lawyers acknowledge they’re having trouble getting through to him. In October 2021 they wrote to Kim’s attorney about trying to break down the prenup for Ye, saying …”But as you also know, we face challenges in communicating with our client — and the validity of the prenup (with all of its related legal implications) is a heavy issue to broach.” The upshot — it seems Kanye isn’t throwing up the roadblocks — his lawyers are, because Ye isn’t involved.
Kim bottom lines her request for single status by stating … “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.”
She adds that she needs to be single, so “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.”
Fact is … the big issue in court next week is when Kim’s lawyer, Laura Wasser, appears to formally have Kim’s legal status restored, and that’s pretty much done for the asking.
