The Motive Kanye West Ought to Keep away from A Custody Battle

Kanye West may have four children, but his genetics “will only get him this far,” divorce attorney Christina Previte told Nicki Swift exclusively. If West is to have 50/50 custody of Kim Kardashian, he “has to overcome some hurdles,” starting with demonstrating his mental fitness and stability, Previte said. “Given Kanye’s very public mental health events, Kanye is unlikely to be able to provide the level of stability the kids have grown accustomed to with Kim unless something has changed drastically …” she said. West has reportedly sought treatment for bipolar disorder, according to People.

While West’s mental health struggles wouldn’t necessarily stand in the way of joint custody, “I doubt there’ll be any serious discussion about it at all unless and until Kanye has his mental illness under control and has proven it for a period of time He follows the treatment recommendations and can provide the children with a stable and safe environment, “said Previte.

If West were not given joint custody after a divorce, it doesn’t mean his relationship with his children would end. “It will certainly be visited regularly with the children as long as it is not showing an active psychological event such as mania, severe depression or even psychosis,” said Previte. No matter what goes on behind closed doors in Kim and Kanye’s relationship, we wish the whole family well.
