Celebrity Docket: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West


For today’s Celebrity Docket, we bring you the matter of Kimberly “Kim” Kardashian v. Kanye West. This matter is in its very beginning stage because, as of today’s date, neither party has filed for divorce in the California court system. Also, the parties have yet to reveal the details of their split publicly. What we do know, according to various celebrity news outlets, is that divorce is on the horizon for this power couple. At least at this stage, it appears that Kim, the party pursuing the split, is trying to keep matters out of court.

It will be interesting to watch this matter unfold. Specifically, to see if Kim and Kanye entered into a prenuptial agreement (also referred to as a “prenup” for short) before they got married in 2014. To learn more about prenuptial agreements in Virginia, watch our video here.

If the couple did have a prenup, we’ll see if it specifically addressed many of the parties’ current assets. For example, according to a recent Forbes article, Kanye West’s shoe brand, Yeezy, is alone worth 1.26 billion. Kim’s KKW Beauty was valued at roughly $1 billion last year. These are only two of the parties’ business ventures, they have also acquired millions of dollars in art, houses, vehicles, and jewelry, among other things. Suffice to say, Kim and Kanye have some large assets at stake! While Kanye may have sang, “Holla we want prenup!”, we’ll stay tuned to see if he took his own advice.

We’ll also be on the lookout to see if Kim’s strategy moving forward to resolve all matters (not addressed in a prenup if there is one) can be negotiated through a separation agreement. To learn more about separation agreements in Virginia, read our blog here and watch our video here.

At minimum, it is likely the parties will need to address matters of their children’s custody, visitation, and child support in some manner, through negotiations or court actions. It seems for now that Kim is trying to keep the matter as private as she can. Perhaps, she is doing this for the parties’ children. Again, only time will tell.
