Kim Kardashian has filed to be ‘legally single’ in her divorce from Kanye West.
The businesswoman, 41, filed the documents on Friday which, if signed off by a judge, will make her a single woman in the eyes of the law.
She is also asking to revert to her maiden name, dropping ‘West,’ which will essentially separate matters of child custody and property from marital status.
The reality star’s lawyer is Laura Wasser, whom TMZ reports has frequently pursued these cases for other big celebrity clients, including Dr. Dre and Kelly Clarkson.
Since legal proceedings are likely to drag on for a while, this move allows celebrities to move on with their lives in the meantime.
The news comes after a series of public pleas from rapper Kanye for his ex to take him back.
