Rapper Kanye West has been ordered to pay ex-wife Kim Kardashian $200,000 per month in child support as part of their divorce settlement.

The rapper and reality TV star will share joint custody of their four children.

Kardashian filed for divorce in 2021, after eight years with West, who has legally changed his name to Ye.

Both parties were declared legally single in March, with Kardashian also dropping “West” from her last name.

Issues around the division of property and custody of their children were resolved in court documents filed on Tuesday.

Expenses for the children’s security, school and college will be shared.

The couples have four children: North, 9, Saint, 6, Chicago, 4, and Psalm, 3.

Only last week, Ye announced his intention to run for US president in 2024.

He previously ran in 2020 but gained just 70,000 votes.
