The amount will then cater for their four children's expenses including security, school, and college. According to reports the children will spend most of their time with their mother Kardashian.

The couple has been blessed with four children: North, 9, Saint, 6, Chicago, 4, and Psalm, 3.

In several statements submitted earlier, Kardashian, 42, stated that she "very much" wanted the marriage to be ended, adding that this would "help Kanye to accept" that the relationship was over.

According to documents filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, the two will have joint custody and neither will pay the other spousal support.

At Kardashian's request, a judge declared the two legally single in March, effectively ending their eight-year marriage, but property and custody issues remained to be resolved in a trial beginning on December 14.

The couple began dating in 2012 and had their first child in 2013. West proposed later that year using the giant screen at the empty waterfront ballpark of the San Francisco Giants, and the two married on 24 May 2014 in a ceremony at a Renaissance-era fortress in Florence, Italy.

When Kardashian first filed for divorce in February 2021, it appeared that the two were on their way to a peaceful divorce on mutual terms.

The agreement comes shortly after several companies including Adidas, Gap, and Balenciaga due to offensive and antisemitic remarks that further harmed an already tarnished public image.

Earlier this week, Kanye stated that he is set to run for the presidency come 2024 which will be his second time after he first contested for the seat in 2020 where he garnered 70,000 votes.
