Kim Kardashian has filed for divorce from rapper Kanye West. The couple have been married for almost seven years and have four children.
The news was broken by celebrity website TMZ after months of rumors of marital difficulties.
Reports suggest the reality star requested joint legal and physical custody of their children.
The couple are among the most recognizable stars in the world and are both hugely successful in their own right.
Kim first found fame in 2007 as the star of an E! Television reality series about her family. Keeping up with the Kardashians has remained popular since, with its 21st and final season due to air. Forbes estimates her personal wealth to be about 780 million dollars.
Known for huge international hits like Gold Digger, Kanye West has been one of the biggest names in rap music for over 15 years. The Grammy-winning musician has also found success as a fashion designer.
Last year, West unsuccessfully ran for US president.
