After officially filing for divorce earlier from Kanye West earlier this year, Kim Kardashian has taken the proceedings one step further.

According to TMZ, the reality star filed legal papers to become “legally single” which will “separate issues of child custody and property from marital status”.

In addition, after being legally known as Kim Kardashian West for the last seven years, Kim has reportedly requested for her “maiden name to be restored” in the official documents.

This move comes after Kanye – now known as ‘Ye’ – made a public declaration of his desire to reconcile with Kim.

While performing at the L.A. Memorial Coliseum, where Kim was in attendance with two of their children North and Saint, Kanye sang one song entitled ‘Runaway’ of his recent album.

Opting to adlib some of the lyrics, Kanye sang, “Run back to me… more specifically, Kimberly.”

It’s been reported that just hours after this declaration, Kim filed the papers to become legally single.

She filed for divorce back in February after seven years of marriage.

At the time, TMZ reported that in the court papers, the beauty mogul requested joint custody of their four children – North, seven, Saint, five, Chicago, two, and 20-month-old Psalm – together and the pair are “committed to co-parenting together”.

It appears Kim has also moved on from Kanye romantically as she has been linked with comedian Pete Davidson after hosting an episode of Saturday Night Live in October.
