The court has ruled Kim Kardashian legally single amid her ongoing divorce from Kanye West.

According to TMZ, a bifurcation hearing took place on Tuesday where the judge granted Kardashian’s request to be ruled legally single. Kardashian appeared via video conference for the hearing and West did not attend.

The ruling for Kim Kardashian to be legally single comes nearly three months after she requested that the judge change her marital status. West previously challenged his Kardashian’s request to be declared legally single.

In recent court documents, filed on Feb. 23, Kardashian said, “I very much desire to be divorced. I have asked Kanye to keep our divorce private, but he has not done so. Kanye has been putting a lot of misinformation regarding our private family matters and co-parenting on social media which has created emotional distress. I believe that the court terminating our marital status will help Kanye to accept that our marital relationship is over and to move forward on a better path which will assist us in peacefully co-parenting our children.”

The Kardashians star added, “While I wish our marriage would have succeeded, I have come to the realization that there is no way to repair our marriage. Kanye does not agree but at least it appears that he has come to the realization that I want to end our marriage, even if he does not. I ask that the Court restore me to the status of a single person so that I can begin the healing process and so that our family can begin the healing process and move forward in this new chapter in our lives.”

Kardashian and West started dating in 2012 and officially wed in May 2014. Together they share four children: North, 8, Saint, 6, Chicago, 4, and Psalm, 2.
