Kanye West is expected to pay Kim Kardashian $200,000 (£166,000) a month in child support following their high-profile split.
The pair, who were married for nearly seven years and share four children, have finally finalised the terms of their divorce almost two years after it was first announced.
According to TMZ, both child custody and property-related issues have now been resolved between the former couple. The pair will reportedly get joint custody with equal access to their four children: North, nine, Saint, six, Chicago, four and Psalm, three.
However, it's reported that Kim, 42, will have the children most of the time.
According to the settlement, Kanye will pay $200,000 his share of child support per month and he is also responsible for half of the children's educational expenses and security expenses.
Should there be any disagreement over anything in relation to the kids, the pair have agreed to participate in mediation. If one of them doesn't turn up, the other will make the decision.
The publication has reported that both Kim and Kanye waived receiving spousal support, as per their prenup agreement signed before the marriage.
The agreement brings to a close a long period of negotiations and back and forth to resolve all of the outstanding issues. A source said: "Kim's patience was tested, but she handled things calmly and ultimately Kanye came around."
Kim first filed for divorce back in February 2021, although speculation that the couple were splitting had been circulating for weeks.
Speaking to Vogue about her decision to divorce Kanye, Kim said: “For so long, I did what made other people happy. I think in the last two years I decided I’m going to make myself happy – and that feels really good.
"And even if that created changes and caused my divorce, I think it’s important to be honest with yourself about what really makes you happy. I’ve chosen myself. I think it’s okay to choose you."
She continued: “My forties are about being Team Me. I’m going to eat well. I’m going to work out. I’m going to have more fun, spend more time with my kids and the people who make me happy. I’m going to put my phone down. Unfollow if I don’t want to see something on Instagram.”
She confirmed that those “changes” were what caused her to file for divorce from her husband of nearly seven years.
The pair married back in 2014 after first going public with their relationship in 2012.
