Kim Kardashian was spotted in Los Angeles without her wedding ring on Thursday, the night before she filed for divorce from her third husband Kanye West.
The 40-year-old reality TV icon emerged from lockdown in a sensational outfit including a skintight nude top that emphasized her world-famous curves.
Meanwhile Kanye, 43, had been seen out and about in Malibu this Wednesday looking somewhat downcast – and still wearing his wedding band on his left hand.

Rumors have been swirling for over a month that Kim was on the verge of divorcing Kanye, and in the intervening time she has been seen out multiple times without her ring.
When she was sighted this Wednesday she cut a typical California glamorous figure in a gleaming pair of fitted blue trousers that showed off her knockout legs and derriere.
She also slipped into what appeared to be a PVC black jacket, letting her luxurious hair down and accentuating her screen siren features with makeup.

By Friday she had filed for divorce through her lawyer Laura Wasser and was requesting joint custody of her and Kanye’s children North, seven, Saint, five, Chicago, three, and Psalm, one.
Both parents are amenable to the idea of split custody, they are both willing to let their prenuptial agreement stand and the property settlement is well on its way to being sorted out, TMZ reports.
Kim is allegedly worth about $780 million according to a Forbes estimate last October, while Kanye is said to be worth $1.3 billion, the same magazine reported Friday.
Their homes include their $60 million main residence in Hidden Hills – as well as the Cody, Wyoming ranch where Kanye is currently staying and which he reportedly bought for $14 million.

A source told DailyMail.com: ‘The split is amicable and there is no drama,’ but a representative for Kim has not yet replied to DailyMail.com’s request for comment.
Meanwhile a Deadline insider said the divorce ‘will be a fairly straightforward and hopefully quick process,’ and a source in Kanye’s camp told People: ‘It’s as amicable as possible, but amicable doesn’t mean joyful or ideal. It just means that they’re being adults about the whole thing.’
The rap star and former U.S. presidential candidate apparently ‘knew it was coming, but that doesn’t make it any easier. This is a somber day for him.’
Laura also represented Kim in her split from her second husband Kris Humphries – a marriage that infamously lasted only 72 days in 2011 before the reality star filed for divorce.

In fact Laura is widely regarded as one of the top Hollywood divorce attorneys and has represented Angelina Jolie in her divorce from Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp in his divorce from Amber Heard, among other major names.
Kim married Kanye in Florence in 2014 in a bridal gown designed by the groom’s friend Riccardo Tisci, but by last year the problems in the marriage became a public spectacle.
After his presidential campaign rally on July 19 in which he tearfully revealed he and Kim considered aborting North, he launched into a days-long string of Twitter rants denouncing his wife and his mother-in-law.
He claimed Kim and Kris tried to have him committed and accused his wife of having an inappropriate relationship with the rapper Meek Mill.

Kanye, who referred to his mother-in-law as ‘Kris Jong Un’ in one of his outbursts, also posted and deleted a tweet claiming he was ‘trying to divorce’ his wife.
Amid her husband’s Twitter rants Kim, who was reportedly livid that he shared the abortion story publicly, made a statement saying the family was ‘powerless’ to intervene in Kanye’s bipolar disorder issues since he is an adult.
The couple then traveled to the Caribbean with the pastor who married them for what was widely reported as amake-or-break trip to save their relationship.
In October Kanye attended Kim’s lavish 40th birthday vacation to what used to be Marlon Brando’s private island in Tahiti, though he is said to have arrived late.

Kanye and Kim’s already strained relationship reportedly was dealt its final blow after the couple had ‘a big fight in early December,’ an insider told Us Weekly.
‘Kanye blew up at Kim and she was really upset. Things between them don’t seem to have healed since that,’ the source claimed as rumors circulated that the couple were over.
Recently a Page Six insider alleged that the last season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians will show the ‘Kimye’ marriage on the rocks – and an Us Weekly source added that Kanye is ‘less than thrilled’ by it.
The Page Six source claimed that ‘the Kardashians intend to go out with a bang. They’ve filmed Kim discussing her marriage problems. But everybody involved is on a nondisclosure agreement, because the finale won’t screen until later in 2021.’

Keeping Up With The Kardashians will end this year with its 20th season and the women of the family will then move to an undisclosed project at Hulu.
Meanwhile last month Kim came in for another financial windfall when she finalized a deal to sell 20% of her KKW Beauty empire to Coty for a staggering $200 million.
Kim’s first marriage was to record producer Damon Thomas, whom she eloped with in Las Vegas in 2000 while on ecstasy and divorced in 2004. He has staunchly denied her allegations of domestic abuse.
Her second marriage to basketball heartthrob Kris Humphries took place in 2011 and was broadcast on Keeping UP With The Kardashians less than a month before she filed for divorce.
