The source continued: “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 father-of-four is also seeking professional help, as the insider shared: “Kanye is seeing counselors and advisors to help him through this spot. It’s rough for him, and he isn’t happy, but he’s resigned to reality.”
Kim officially filed for divorce on Friday following months of speculation that the pair had called it quits.
TMZ reported that the 40-year-old is asking for joint legal and physical custody of the couple’s four kids.

Sources close to the famous family told TMZ that Kanye is “fine” with the joint custody arrangement as they are “committed to co-parenting together.”
The insider added that a prenup has already been arranged to handle the pair’s massive $2 billion fortune and neither party is contesting the agreement.
Meanwhile, the Grammy-winning musician and fashion designer has a net worth of over $1.2 billion.
The famous couple tied the knot in 2014, while they share daughters North, 7, Chicago, 3, and sons Saint, 5, and one-year-old baby boy Psalm.

The marriage was Kim’s third, as the SKIMS founder was previously the wife to songwriter Damon Thomas in her early 20’s and had an infamous 72-day-marriage to NBA player Kris Humphries in 2013.
Meanwhile, the marriage was the Yeezy mogul’s first, though he previously dated Chanel Iman, Amber Rose, Alexis Phifer, Sessilee Lopez, Selita Ebanks, Brooke Crittendon and Sumeke Rainey.
At the time, Kanye claimed his wife considered aborting their eldest child North and claimed he had been trying to divorce her after she met Nicki Minaj’s ex Meek Mill at a hotel two years ago.

Before Kim filed the paperwork, a source told The Sun that things may seem “amicable” at first but it will “get ugly” as they battle for custody.
The insider revealed: “Neither of them want to seem like the loser in this divorce and they both will fight hard for their kids. Kim has made it clear she wants full custody so if Kanye tries to fight her on that, the custody battle will be brutal.”
