Kanye West and Kim Kardashian will share joint custody of their four children following their divorce, court documents show.

West, like Kardashian, has requested joint custody of North, seven, Saint, five, Chicago, three and one-year-old Psalm.

There was no date listed for the separation, but the couple’s relationship had been under speculation for months at the end of last year.

The divorce will not be required to award spousal support either, according both West and Kardashian, with both stars considered billionaires by Forbes magazine.

Kardashian, who shot to fame in the reality TV show Keeping Up With The Kardashians, married Gold Digger hitmaker West in 2014 – making them one of the biggest celebrity couples in Hollywood.
