KIM Kardashian insisted that Kanye West paid child support in order to show he is “serious about co-parenting”.
The reality star, 42, and rapper, 45, reached a divorce settlement last month, and it was revealed that Kanye will be paying $200k a month towards their children.
They said: “Kim wanted Kanye to pay an amount that showed she was serious about them co-parenting and that he would notice coming out of his bank account every month.
“It’s the only thing she can control about their relationship right now.
“She doesn’t need the money, so she’s going to put it aside for the kids. Same with Kanye’s bachelor pad next door to her house – she doesn’t need it, but she doesn’t want him living there.”
The Kardashians star and her Yeezy founder ex will get joint custody of their four kids.
Documents obtained by TMZ say they will have equal access to the kids, though sources said that Kim will have them most of the time.
Sources claim that it’s his share of the cost to care for and maintain the lifestyle of his children and it’s to be wired directly into her account on the first of every month.
In addition to that sum, Kanye is responsible for 50 percent of his kids’ educational expenses and 50 percent of their security costs.
