Daily US Times: Kim Kardashian has filed for divorce her husband Kanye West, according to reports in the US media.

Kim and Kanye have been married for almost seven years and have four children together.

The news was broken by TMZ after months of rumours of marital difficulties.

US media reports suggest the reality star, 40, has requested joint legal and physical custody of their children. Neither of them has publicly commented.

The couple are both hugely successful in their own right and are among the most recognisable stars in the world.

Kim Kardashian first found fame in 2007 as the star of an E! Television reality series about her family. Keeping up with the Kardashians has remained hugely popular since, with its 21st and final series due to air next year.

The reality star has found success in many other businesses, from make-up to mobile apps, and Forbes estimates her personal wealth to be about $780m (£556m).

Known for huge international hits like Gold Digger, Rapper Kanye West has been one of the biggest names in rap music for over 15 years. Mr West has also found success as a fashion designer.

The couple were friends for years before they got together and West first appeared on her family’s reality show in 2010.

Their first daughter, North, born in June 2013.

Kanye West famously hired the San Francisco Giants’ baseball stadium and an orchestra to propose Kim in front of her family, and their show’s cameras, later that year.
