Inside Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s Divorce Settlement, Rapper Reportedly Ordered to Pay $200K In Monthly Child Support

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West reportedly are officially divorced. The two began dating in 2012 and wed in 2014. They share four kids, daughters, North, 9, and Chicago, 4, and sons, Saint, 6, and Psalm, 3.

Kanye West Child Support Payments

TMZ confirmed the news in a report on Tuesday, Nov. 29, noting further details about their children and assets. Both parties waived spousal support and reportedly will share joint legal and physical custody with “equal access.”

West reportedly must wire Kardashian $200,000 in child support on the first of every month. They will split all medical, educational and security expenses for the kids. Any disputes about the children will be handled in mediation. However, according to the outlet, if one individual fails to cooperate, the other will make the final decision by default.

One critic said, “Kim K asking for child support from Kanye like she not a billionaire is insane. That man just lost millions too.”
