Kanye, 44, and the 41-year-old reality star – who legally separated a year ago – officially became single following a virtual court hearing on Tuesday via Zoom – according to TMZ.

The couple formerly known as ‘Kimye’ will likely have an ‘informal’ custody agreement for their four children – daughter North, 8; son Saint, 6; daughter Chicago, 4; and son Psalm, 2.

‘Kim will be home base and Kanye can see his four kids pretty much whenever he chooses,’ a source told TMZ on Thursday.

‘As crazy as the divorce has been, the custody issues for the most part have been handled peacefully. Whenever Kanye’s in L.A. and wants to see the kids, Kim has facilitated it. They can always go back to court if it becomes acrimonious, but for now things have been peaceful.’

‘She hopes the rest of the divorce process will be amicable for the sake of the kids and her and Kanye will be able to get through it peacefully.’

However, the Atlanta-born hip-hop star dropped a claymation music video for his track EAZY with The Game on Wednesday featuring himself burying the SKIMS CEO’s boyfriend Pete Davidson alive.

Kim has been dating the 28-year-old girl-crazy comedian ever since she hosted Saturday Night Live on October 9.
