The beginning of the marriage end comes after the September announcement that the show that made her family's name, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, was coming to an end in 2021 after 14 years.

It was the first marriage for the West, 43, and the third for Kardashian, 40. While the union wasn't long, it outlasted the predictions of many cynics who thought doom was inevitable given the two oversized personalities, West's well-known volatility and the fact that Kardashian's previous marriage, to former NBA player Kris Humphries, was fleetingly brief, reports said.

Kardashian's first marriage at age 19 in 2000 to music producer Damon Thomas lasted until 2004. In 2011, she married Humphries in a heavily hyped wedding televised in a two-part special on Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

She filed for divorce less than three months later, though she was still legally married in 2012 when she and West, a friend for years who had paid tribute to her in his songs, became a couple, and she became pregnant.

Since the Humphries divorce, Kardashian has retained the services of perhaps the best-known divorce attorney in the country, Laura Wasser, dubbed the Disso Queen after representing clients that include Angelina Jolie, Johnny Depp and Britney Spears. Wasser filed the divorce Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court. It was first reported by the celebrity website TMZ.

Kardashian is a Los Angeles-area lifer, but West is from Chicago and spends much of his time, including many of the later months of the marriage, at his ranch in Wyoming, and has said he wants his kids with him there.
