American rapper and billionaire, Kanye West (Ye), said divorce feels like full-blown Covid-19 after the court declared Kim Kardashian as legally single.
In a virtual court hearing on Wednesday, Kardashian also officially and legally dropped “West” from her last name after nearly eight years of marriage.
Kardashian, who filed for divorce from the rapper last year, made the request in December to become legally single.
The former couple must still resolve the division of property and custody of their four children.
Wednesday’s ruling – granting Kardashian’s request for a “bifurcated divorce” – means that divorce proceedings will be split into two parts – the first settling her legal name and marital status, now resolved, and the second part involving custody and financial assets.
In several sworn statements submitted since December, the 41-year-old beauty and television mogul said she “very much” desired the termination of her marriage.
Kanye West, however, took to social media on Friday to pen an emotional note about divorce.
He wrote: “Divorce feels like full-blown Covid. Divorce feels like your doctor doesn’t know sh*t. Divorce feels like you’re walking on glass.
“Divorce feels like you’re running through a glass wall. Divorce feels like you’re being bullied in a class hall. Divorce feels like you’re getting beat up in the mall.”
Describing divorce as “suffocating”, West said it also felt “like your teeth being pulled with pliers”, “like nails in your hand”, “like walking in on your bride and best man.”
Concluding with a quote from Micheal Jackson’s Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’ lyrics, the rapper said divorce felt like “you gave everyone away and you don’t have the right to have anything to say.”
“You are not you anymore. You’re what’s left of you. Micheal Jackson said it best: You’re a vegetable. You’re a vegetable. You’re the real Cosby not a Huxtable,” the post read.
