Kim Kardashian's chances of winning children custody increases after Kanye West disses judge

By George Johnson November 24, 2022

According to a recent court document, Kim Kardashian's ex decided to skip his scheduled deposition on November 16 due to his anti-Semitism scandal.

According to court documents obtained by The U.S. Sun, he still has a chance to be questioned by Kim's defence team on November 29. His lawyer has consented to this.

However, if the 45-year-old celebrity decides not to appear, it might have a significant impact on the custody of his children, North, 9, Saint, 6, Chicago, 4, and Psalm, 3.

Family law attorney Lexie Rigden of Rigden Law LLC in New Jersey provided her legal assessment of the current situation.

She told the source: "If Kanye refuses to show up to his deposition, the Judge could sanction him monetarily, make him pay counsel fees, and if it is an egregious enough discovery violation, the judge may be able to bar him from putting on a case at trial."

"In most divorce cases, the parties are able to at least work out some of the issues. But, given his behavior and apparent unreasonableness, everything may be in dispute, from custody to distribution of assets."

"For two very wealthy people who do not need each other's money, the custody issues will be most important."

"His disparaging posts about Kim and her family in the media, and his nonsensical proposals including that the children attend two different schools at once, are going to likely be used to show that he cannot reasonably co-parent and does not have the children's best interests in mind."

Despite earlier reports that Kim, 42, is content to give Kanye 50/50 custody, he has criticised her on social media, asserting that she is in charge of the children 80% of the time.
