Kim Kardashian has filed new court documents to expedite her divorce from Kanye West, describing their marriage as unsalvageable.
After filing to be declared legally single last week, new court documents filed by the star emphasized her desire to “bifurcate the issue of marital status from the remaining issues to be heard in this matter, and to terminate the parties’ marital status.”
The documents note that issues regarding their children, property matters and division of assets should be dealt with separately from their marital status, allowing the Kardashian to be legally single sooner.
While the court date for their divorce hearing is set for March 22, Kim Kardashian has, however, requested that the courts “grant an early and separate trial on the issue of the dissolution of the status of the marriage apart from other issues…rather than delaying the dissolution until all other property and custody issues are resolved.
“The parties’ marriage has irremediably broken down. [Kardashian] no longer desires to be married to [West],” the documents state, noting that, “There is no question that the marriage of the parties is no longer viable.”
Despite efforts by West to woo his now estranged wife, the documents reveal that the Kardashian has “no desire to reconcile.”
“Irreconcilable differences have led to the irremediable breakdown of the marriage, and there is no possibility of saving the marriage through counseling or other means,” the documents state. “The continued maintenance of technical marital status between [Kardashian] and [West] serves no useful purpose, and there is no reason to maintain the legal relationship.”
In her declaration in the documents, Kardashian says, “I have been attempting to settle our dissolution with [West] since I filed for divorce in February 2021. I have requested several times that [he] agree to bifurcate and terminate our marital status. [He] has not responded to my request.”
She concluded that both she and West “deserve the opportunity to build new lives.”
