Kim Kardashian has asked a US court to hasten her divorce, claiming that doing so will assist her husband, Ye, understand that their marriage is over.
After months of newspaper stories about marital difficulties and as the musician formerly known as Kanye West battled mental health issues, Kardashian filed for divorce last year.
Ye has been vocal about his dissatisfaction with the split, including social media posts pleading with Kardashian to reconcile.
“I very much desire to be divorced,” Kardashian wrote in a declaration filed to a Los Angeles court on Wednesday.
“I have asked Kanye to keep our divorce private, but he has not done so.
“I believe that the court terminating our marital status will help Kanye to accept that our marital relationship is over and to move forward on a better path which will assist us in peacefully co-parenting our children.”
The couple has four children: an eight-year-old daughter named North, a six-year-old son named Saint, a four-year-old daughter named Chicago, and a two-year-old son named Psalm.
The couple, who started dating in 2012 and married two years later in a grandiose ceremony in Italy, quickly became one of the world’s most known couples.
However, tales of odd outbursts by Ye, who suffers from bipolar disorder, put their union in jeopardy.
“While I wish our marriage would have succeeded, I have come to the realization that there is no way to repair our marriage,” Kardashian wrote in the filing.
“Kanye does not agree but at least it appears that he has come to the realization that I want to end our marriage, even if he does not.”
