Kanye West responds to Kim Kardashian West's divorce petition

Kanye West has responded to Kim Kardashian West's divorce petition.

The couple - who share North, seven, Saint, five, Chicago, three, and Psalm, 23 months, together - decided earlier this year to go their separate ways and after Kim filed for divorce from the rapper, he has filed his own response to her submission.

Kanye is requesting joint legal and physical custody of their children and both Kanye and Kim agree that there is no need for either of them to pay spousal support. Both have agreed to pay their own legal fees, TMZ reports.

Meanwhile, Kim's mother Kris Jenner previously insisted that her and her family have rallied around Kim to offer "support" amid her divorce and the family are focusing on making sure Kim and Kanye’s children are happy.

Kris said: "I think it's always going to be hard anytime ... you know, there's a lot of kids.

“The good thing about our family is that we are there for each other and supportive and we love each other very, very much so all I want is for those two kids to be happy. And I want the kids to be happy.

“That's the goal. I think we all want that for our families, just to be able to have the love and appreciation of one another, and that everyone's okay. That's what you want as a mom."

It comes after it was reported the SKIMS founder wants to sit down with Oprah Winfrey to open up on her split.

A source said: "Kim’s gearing up to do a big sit-down interview with Oprah to open up about her marriage split.

“She feels she needs to face the public and be open and honest about what really happened between her and Kanye, and address the rumour mill.

“She’s biding her time, but she has already been planning the interview and wants it to be a two-part special.

“It will likely happen when all the loose ends of the divorce are tied up."
