Kanye West is seeking joint legal and physical custody of his four children with Kim Kardashian, TMZ reported Monday.
The rapper’s response to Kardashian’s February divorce filing is “basically a mirror image” of his estranged wife’s petition, according to the site, which noted that the joint custody doesn’t necessarily mean a 50/50 split of North, 7, Saint, 5, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 1.
Kardashian, 40, and West, 43, are not seeking spousal support from each other — an interesting if not entirely unexpected development given the Grammy winner’s spending habits and the fact that the reality star was recently recognized as a billionaire.
In addition, West wants them to be responsible for their own legal fees.
Page Six reported in March that while the couple are co-parenting their children, they are no longer on speaking terms. West has requested that Kardashian not be at the couple’s home whenever he visits the children, and “even before Kim filed for divorce, Kanye changed his numbers and said, ‘You can contact me through my security,’” per a source.
West and Kardashian had a prenup in place, making their split “an easy case of ‘You keep your money and I’ll keep mine,’” the source added.
