When the SKIMS founder filed for divorce in February, she applied for joint custody of her children. Now, two months later, Kanye finally answers and requests the same.

Furthermore, neither Kim nor Kanye seem interested in cutting the others out of their children’s lives, suggesting that they may be able to work out a healthy situation for the future.
With Kanye busy at work on his upcoming collaboration with Yeezy X Gap, the fashion designer still places great emphasis on seeing his kids. “He still sees the kids just keeping everything private and quiet and not for long,” the source added. Meanwhile, the KKW Beauty founder reportedly remains positive, trying to keep peace with her estranged ex. “Kim will take you to Wyoming for the night or he will come to California for a few days and stay with friends,” the insider said. Despite the ongoing divorce proceedings, the former couple has worked out “their routine”. But things are more “on his schedule, which can be frustrating for Kim”. At least they both try for the sake of their children.
