(CNN)Kim Kardashian West has filed for divorce from Kanye West, a court clerk for Los Angeles Superior Court confirmed to CNN on Friday.

Christy Welder, a representative for Kardashian West, confirmed the divorce filing but said Kardashian West had no additional comment.

CNN has reached out to West for comment.

The two, who married in a lavish wedding in Italy in 2014, have been living apart for some time.

West has reportedly been living at their home in Wyoming, while Kardashian West has stayed in California with their children.

West interviewed his wife for Vogue Arabia and asked her about the first time they met.

You thought I was (singer) Brandy's assistant, which I wasn't," Kardashian West recalled.

I thought you were attractive, nice, very charming, really funny, powerful -- I was in awe of you, but I was really shy, quiet, and a little nervous, to be honest. "

West famously proposed to Kardashian by renting out a sports stadium and hiring an orchestra, as her family watched from nearby -- all of which was documented and shared on the family's popular E!

reality series "Keeping Up With the Kardashians. "

The couple have four children together.

The couple supported each other through tough times, including Kardashian West being robbed at gunpoint in Paris in 2016 during a home invasion.

In 2018, West tweeted his admiration for his wife.

"Gratitude and happiness best describe what my wife means to me," he wrote.

Kardashian West, for her part, has also often spoke out in defense of her husband, who has been open about his struggles with bipolar disorder and stirred controversy with his provocative tweets and political views.

Last summer, Kardashian West sought understanding from the public in a social media post.

"I understand Kanye is subject to criticism because he is a public figure and his actions at times can cause strong opinions and emotions," she wrote in a statement shared on social media.

Those who are close with Kanye know his heart and understand his words some times do not align with his intentions. "
