According to TMZ, West's mental health issues will have no bearing on Kardashian's move for joint legal and physical custody of the couple's four children: North, 7, Saint, 5, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 1. In fact, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star has complete confidence in her estranged husband's ability to help raise their children.
Sources with direct knowledge told the gossip outlet that Kardashian “totally trusts” her soon-to-be ex-husband with their kids, adding that the 43-year-old — who also lives with bipolar disorder — is usually not around his children whenever he's experiencing an episode. What's more, "there are almost always caretakers or family members around the children."
"Kanye's a great dad, and over the last few months even made a couple trips with just him and some of the kids ... no additional assistance,” insiders told TMZ.
As many will recall, West made headlines more than once in 2020 for accusations he made against Kardashian and her mother, Kris Jenner. Despite the fallout, Kardashian still defended her husband.
“As many of you know, Kanye has bi-polar disorder. Anyone who has this or has a loved one in their life who does, knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand,” Kardashian wrote on Instagram at the time, calling him “a brilliant but complicated person.”
“Those who are close with Kanye know his heart and understand his words do not align with his intentions,” she said at the time.
As of this writing, neither Kardashian nor West have commented on the divorce reports.
