Kim Kardashian West is requesting to be declared legally single amid her ongoing divorce from Kanye West.
On Friday, Kim, 41, filed court documents asking to separate issues of child custody and property from her marital status, per the outlet.
Kim also asked to have her maiden name restored.
Kardashian West and West, 44, share four children, North, 8, Saint, 6, Chicago, 3½, and Psalm, 2½. Kim filed for divorce from Ye in February after nearly seven years of marriage.
West has continued to publicly ask to get back with Kardashian West. The latest plea came on Thursday, when he dedicated his song “Runaway” to his ex while performing at the Free Larry Hoover concert at the Los Angeles Coliseum.
After singing the lyrics, “I need you to run right back to me, baby,” he added, “more specifically, Kimberly.”
West has also insisted Kardashian West is “still” his wife. While appearing on the Drink Champs podcast back in November, Ye stated: ” ’cause she’s still my wife, ain’t no paperwork,” and said the two were not divorced.
“And I ain’t never even seen the papers, we’re not even divorced,” he said, adding, “That ain’t no joke to me. My kids want their parents to stay together. I want … us to be together.”
After Thursday’s concert, a source revealed how Kardashian “knows where Kanye’s head is” but “ignores it.”
The source also said Kardashian West “has moved on” but “she knows it’s difficult for Kanye to deal with,” adding, “She isn’t surprised that he pleads in public for her to run back to him. She is just trying to be respectful about it.”
Kardashian West attended Thursday’s concert with her two eldest kids, North and Saint, as well as her sister Kendall Jenner and mom Kris Jenner. The source said North “is especially a fan of her dad’s music.”
“Kim will always bring the kids to events that are important to Kanye,” the source added. “Co-parenting and making sure her kids are happy will always be her priority.”
Kardashian West has been dating comedian Pete Davidson amid her divorce.
“He’s exactly what Kim needed after her divorce — someone to make her laugh and just have a fun time with,” a source previously shared of Davidson, 28. “The end of her marriage was a very dark time for her and Pete has been the best antidote.”
