Kim and Kanye: The Divorce Of The Year

Kim, Kanye, and Divorce

By now, even if you are not following celebrity news, you have heard a thing or two about the Kanye West and Kim Kardashian divorce drama. Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from Kanye West in early 2021. Since then, there has been a multitude of issues stemming from these divorce proceedings. In the early stages, there was not too much news coming out of this, but as time has progressed, the Kim and Kanye divorce drama has only increased. While this divorce is taking place in the state of California where Kim and Kanye are residents, what would happen if their divorce proceedings took place in Florida? Let us find out, shall we?

According to US Weekly Magazine, Kim Kardashian cited “irreconcilable differences have existed and continue to exist between [West] and me, which have caused our marriage to irretrievably break down” as the reason for her divorce. If you live in Florida, a no-fault state, you can do the same. In a no-fault divorce jurisdiction, an irretrievable breakdown of the marriage is one of the reasons you can plead in regards to your divorce, in accordance with Florida Statute 61.052.

It is no doubt that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are among the world’s most rich and famous, so what happens to the money and assets in their divorce? Not to worry, they had a prenup. According to, Kim and Kanye’s prenup stated that Kim would receive $1 million dollars for every year her and Kanye West were married (up to $10 million), a mansion, and Kim gets to keep all gifts and jewelry from Kanye. Even if you have a different setup and lifestyle than Kanye and Kim, you should still consider a prenuptial agreement to protect your interests. According to Florida Statute 61.079, a prenuptial agreement may allow several arrangements in the event of a divorce, such as rights to buy, sell, use, or transfer property; the establishment, modification, waiver, or elimination of spousal support; rights regarding the death benefit from a life insurance policy; or any other matter that does not violate public policy of Florida or a law imposing a criminal penalty.

Kim and Kanye also have been in recent news for Kanye’s recent social media posts, including telling everyone that he was not invited to his daughter’s birthday party, that he disagreed with his daughter’s tik tok usage, and his dislike for Pete Davidson, among many other things. If your soon to be ex-spouse is making or posting disparaging comments about you or your divorce, consider consulting with an attorney to create a non-disparagement clause in your settlement agreement or in a court order during the divorce proceedings.
