The agreement comes almost two years since Kardashian filed for divorce in February 2021 and will see the ex-spouses have joint custody of their four children.

West and Kardashian will also evenly split the bill regarding their children’s medical, educational and security expenses. Should a dispute arise regarding their children, the pair will have to commit to mediation.

This comes amid plenty of controversy in Kanye’s professional life, with several companies having cut ties with the rapper following anti-Semitic comments and several other controversial incidents. This included the termination of his Yeezy deal with Adidas, with the company saying it does “not tolerate antisemitism and any other sort of hate speech.”

The German sportswear company have also launched an investigation into Ye’s behaviour during his partnership, including reports that he showed staff there pornography and explicit images of his ex-wife.

And Ye’s money troubles haven’t stopped there, with Forbes reporting the rapper was no longer a billionaire after many companies stopped dealing with him following his controversies. He recently also revealed on the right-wing podcast Timcast IRL that he owes a reported $50 million (£42 million) in taxes.

Despite these problems, compounded by his almost weekly doubling-down on his remarks, Ye is still gearing up for his presidential run for 2024. Ye announced his bid for the highest office in America last week and asked the controversial right-wing figure Milo Yiannopoulos to be his campaign manager, with likewise incendiary fringe figure Nick Fuentes also joining in.
