Divorced: Although the two broke up on Friday, Pete appeared in public to put family first to support his sister

Sparks immediately flew between them and soon after they decided to take the chance and start dating for real.
Kim was previously married to rapper, Kanye West, or now also known professionally as Ye. The couple married in 2014, but the media influencer filed for divorce in February 2021.
The exes share four children, North, Chicago, Psalm and Saint West. Despite filing for divorce over a year ago, the details are still being refined. Kim was declared legally single earlier this year in March.
