Rapper Kanye West has been ordered to pay Kim Kardashian $200,000 per month in child support after a divorce settlement was finally reached.
The controversial artist and reality TV star will share joint custody of their four children, following a divorce filed by Kardashian in 2021.
The two spent 8 years together, and are parents to North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm. Issues around the division of property and custody were resolved in court documents filed on Tuesday.
The two parties should consult with each other on major decisions about their children’s welfare, with expenses for the kids’ security, school and college to be shared.
The reason behind Kanye’s $200,000 monthly fee is because the children will spend the majority of their time with Kardashian. Kardashian had said that she very much wanted the marriage over as it would help Kanye accept that the relationship ended.
This comes after Ye’s recent controversial statements on social media, which saw major brands, including Adidas and Balenciaga, cutting ties with him.
Apart from previously fighting against the divorce, Ye had also announced his intention to run for US President in 2024. He had already done so in 2020, gaining only 70,000 votes.
