KIM Kardashian and Kanye West went head-to-head in court for a divorce hearing on Friday morning and set a date for trial, The Sun can confirm.
The SKIMS founder, 41, filed for divorce from the rapper and entrepreneur in February 2021 after six years together, and their split has played out in public.2Kim and Kanye split after six years of marriage when the reality star filed in 2021 2Ye has not found the separation easy and his public outbursts have been criticized
Kim and Kanye, 45, did not appear on Friday during the court session at the Stanley Most Courthouse in Los Angeles, but were represented remotely by their lawyers.

Although Spector has been asked to be removed from the case, things are moving forward as they set to finalize their split.
Wasser told the court the former couple are working things out, saying: "The parties are getting along and communicating," adding that Kim's counsel has been ready for trial "for quite a while."
She said Kanye has agreed there is a valid prenuptial agreement in place and no community assets.
Both sides will need to produce documents including a witness list and possible income and expenses information.
Wasser said she already had a stipulated judgement drafted, adding: "I'm trying to get someone to pay attention to me."
Judge Cochran said the trial will deal with any "unresolved issues" and could take two days or less.Most read in Entertainment'SO TOXIC' Meghan McCain reveals cruel comment ex cohost said that made her quit The ViewDITCHING SISTERS?

He also confirmed Spector is now removed from the case after she filed to withdraw herself.
Spector, who has worked on several celebrity divorces, claimed there had been "an irreconcilable breakdown in the attorney-client relationship" in legal docs filed on May 26.
Since his latest legal shake-up, Kanye has made a surprising move by hiring an out-of-state attorney, Deborah Hong, who works for Pennsylvania law firm Stradley Ronon.
According to her business profile, she is not a divorce attorney.
Kanye has delayed the process previously and is now on his FIFTH lawyer, according to court documents seen by The Sun.
Friday's hearing puts to rest fan rumors the pair may have secretly reconciled while Kim's boyfriend Pete Davidson has been filming a new movie in Australia for weeks.
Kim, 41, shares four children with the hitmaker - North, nine; Saint, six; Chicago, four; and Psalm, three - and despite agreeing to joint custody they have found co-parenting difficult.
In February, Kim hit back at her ex following his numerous outbursts about custody and her relationship with former SNL star Pete, 28.
The rapper previously called Pete a "d**khead," accused him of "destroying" their family, and threatened to "beat his a**."
Kim responded on social media, saying: "Kanye's constant attacks on me in interviews and on social media is actually more hurtful than any TikTok North might create.
"As the parent who is the main provider and caregiver for our children, I am doing my best to protect our daughter while also allowing her to express her creativity in the medium that she wishes with adult supervision - because it brings her so much happiness.Kanye West OH YEEZUS!

"Divorce is difficult enough on our children and Kanye's obsession with trying to control and manipulate our situation so negatively and publicly is only causing further pain for all."
A month later, Kanye told Hollywood Unlocked: "I've asked my team to expedite the dissolution of my marriage to Kim so I can put my entire attention into our beautiful children."

Sherriff’s deputies arrived Monday morning with a court order to dismantle the encampment.
Heated moments as sheriff’s deputies locked up a man.
Finger-pointing and yelling — confrontations that capped a weeks’-long smoldering feud between the owners of UC Townhomes and residents and their supporters who set up camp outside the property at 40th and Market Streets.
“It’s too hot to get locked up,” a man yelled.
Management and UC Townhomes owners first notified some six dozen tenants in July last year its HUD contract for low-income residents wouldn’t be renewed.

On Thursday, the court ordered the sheriff’s department to dismantle the encampment. Tempers flared.
Sheriff Rochelle Bilal was heckled and booed by the crowd. She sympathized with the tenants.
“If you know the situation is I would be pissed off and I would be protesting too. But we have a job to do and the job is they are trespassing, according to the court order,” Bilal said.
“I’ve lived here for 14 years,” Rasheda Alexander said.
People like Alexander say they’ve been ignored by city officials in their attempts to resolve the matter equitably for both sides.
“This today was the last resort, this was the last resort for us, ” Alexander said. “I’m angry because these city officials are the ones that we vote for and they’re supposed to have the people’s best interest at heart, and they don’t. They are not for the people.”MORE NEWS: NJDOT Offering Drivers Money To Simply Drive Around; Here's How It Works
