The KimYe era is officially over.

According to TMZ, reality star and business mogul Kim Kardashian has officially filed for divorce from her husband of six years, rapper and designer Kanye West. The outlet is describing the separation as "amicable." Both Kardashian and West have agreed to joint legal and physical custody of their four children together, North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm. TMZ reports that the couple have a prenuptial agreement prepared and neither Kardashian nor West is contesting it.

The divorce documents were filed by Kardashian's lawyer, Laura Wasser, and doesn't list an exact date of separation, though major outlets began to report last month that the famous pair had parted ways.

A source previously told E! News that Kardashian had known her marriage was over for some time. Both Kardashian and West have yet to publicly acknowledge or make a statement regarding the end of their marriage.

"It's gotten to the point where they haven't spent time together as a married couple in months," a source told E! last month. "They've seen each other for the sake of the kids but have been living separately. Kim knows the marriage is over. She's known for a while."

People reported this week that West has been handling the dissolution of their marriage as best as he can, considering the circumstances.

"He is anxious and very sad," said a source. "He knows that the marriage is over, and there's nothing that can be done right now. He also knows what he is losing in Kim. There is very little hope of reconciliation. It would have to be a miracle. But Kanye does believe in miracles."
