Kanye West objects to Kim Kardashian’s request to be legally single

Kanye West does not want Kim Kardashian to be declared legally single. This should come as no surprise to anyone who has been keeping up with the rapper on social media.

West, who legally changed his name to Ye, filed documents on Wednesday opposing Kardashian’s request until custody and property issues are resolved. If the reality star’s motion is approved, West has a number of requests of his own. Without getting too into the weeds, they involve taxes, health insurance, and retirement funds, but the interesting one has to do with remarriage.

According to the document, viewed by Yahoo Entertainment, West wants his estranged wife to waive marital privilege if she gets hitched before their divorce is finalized.

“Terminating marital status before custody, property, and support issues are resolved creates a risk of adverse consequences. This is especially true if one of the parties were to pass away while the case is pending. Early termination of status also creates barriers to obtaining evidence if a party remarries before the case is concluded,” the document states.

So what does that mean, exactly?

Let’s say Kardashian weds boyfriend Pete Davidson, hypothetically speaking, and he witnesses an incident involving her children. Communication between spouses is privileged, so Davidson wouldn’t have to testify about the said incident while West and Kardashian resolve custody issues. West is asking that if Kardashian remarries, she waive marital privilege — meaning he would have to testify in this hypothetical — “until a final custody determination has been made and that Kim obtains the same waiver from any new spouse prior to remarriage.”

Lawyers for Kardashian rejected West’s conditions. A hearing has been set for March 2 at which Kardashian will likely be declared single. The former couple has a prenuptial agreement in place which resolves many financial and property issues.

Yahoo Entertainment reached out to Kardashian’s lawyer for comment but did not receive a response.
