Kanye West has agreed to pay his ex-wife Kim Kardashian $200,000 a month in child support.

The former couple were together for eight years and got married in Florence, Italy, in May 2014. 

West, who has legally changed his name to Ye, and Kardashian had their first child, North West, in 2013.

Their second child, Saint West was born in December 2015. While they welcomed Chicago West in 2018 and Psalm West in 2019 via surrogate.

However, the couple called it quits in February 2021 as Kardashian filed for divorce.

Since their separation, both have experienced substantial differences when it comes to their finances.

Kardashian achieved billionaire status shortly afterwards, while West recently lost his billionaire status which caused fans to set up GoFundMe pages to restore it.

However, it seems that he now may have another big cost coming up.

Both parties were declared legally single in March, with Kardashian also dropping ‘West’ from her last name.

The former couple has now finalised their divorce after finally solving issues around the division of property and the custody of their children.

According to documents seen by TMZ, Rolling Stone, People, and Page Six, West has agreed to pay $200,000 a month in child support.

The pair have also agreed to ‘equal access’ to their four children, as well as agreeing to each fund half of their children’s educational and security needs.

The divorce settlement also confirmed that the ‘Gold Digger’ artist and the reality star would waive spousal support.

While they may have finally come to an agreement, it has not been smooth sailing.

West has publicly made attempts to win Kardashian back, whether that was sending a truck full of roses to her house or changing the lyrics in his song ‘Runaway’ to her name.

Despite his romantic methods, Kardashian has rejected them and explained in an interview with Vogue that she split from the rapper for her own happiness.

She said: “For so long, I did what made other people happy.

“And I think in the last two years I decided, I’m going to make myself happy. And that feels really good.

“And even if that created changes and caused my divorce, I think it’s important to be honest with yourself about what really makes you happy.

“I’ve chosen myself. I think it’s OK to choose you.”

Since separating, the couple has been romantically involved with other people.

Famously, Kardashian dated comedian Pete Davidson for nine months, however, the pair had an amicable breakup in August 2022.

During their relationship, West made a number of threats towards the Saturday Night Live alumni, including saying in the song ‘Eazy’: “God saved me from that crash just so I can beat Pete Davidson’s a** (who?).”

Meanwhile, the Grammy award rapper was in a short-lived, whirlwind relationship with actress Julia Fox.

The pair began dating in January 2022 but had split up by February 2022.

Fox recently revealed that the reason she started going out with West was to stop him harassing Kardashian.

She explained in a TikTok video: “But then I had this thought, maybe I can get him off of Kim’s case. 

“Maybe I can distract him, like, just get him to like me.”
