Kanye West Posts Social Media “Fair Game” In Divorce Proceedings With Kim Kardashian

Kanye West’s social media posts are “fair game” and could “become evidence” against him in his divorce from Kim Kardashian, according to legal experts.

Kardashian, 41, filed for divorce from West, 44, in February 2021 after seven years of marriage. The two share four children together: North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm.

West has been going after Kardashian’s new boyfriend Pete Davidson in a flurry of Instagram posts, which he continues to later delete. He’s also shared text messages from Kardashian on his account and speaks about their divorce on the social media app.

When it comes to the divorce proceedings, legal experts tell Fox News Digital that social media posts are “fair game” and can be used in custody battles.

“Social media posts are fair game when it comes to divorce proceedings,” Katherine Miller, founder of New York City-based Miller Law Group, who is not involved in the ex-pair’s case, explained. 

Kanye West Rants About His Divorce

“Kanye West’s rants about his divorce could hurt his arguments on any custody and other parenting issues since he is clearly willing to put his own needs to express his feelings over their best interests,” Miller added.

Divorce proceedings typically entail a decision on custody, although Kardashian and West have agreed on joint custody of their children at the moment. However, if there were to be a custody battle, social media posts that don’t foster a “healthy parent-child relationship” could affect a judge’s decision, according to California divorce lawyer Mark Ressa.

“Social media posts that show a failure of one parent to foster a healthy parent-child relationship with the other parent can absolutely affect the court’s ultimate determination of custody and visitation; i.e., whether custody is awarded primarily to one or to both parents equally and whether there will be restrictions on visitation, such as supervised visitation,” Ressa, who is also not involved in Kardashian and Kanye West’s case, told Fox News Digital.

“Certainly calling into question on social media a parent’s new significant other, especially when children are old enough to access and read social media, does not help foster a healthy parent-child relationship,” he added.
