Kim Kardashian Is 'Fine' with Ex Kanye West Dating, Source Says: 'She Wants Him to Be Happy'

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star filed for divorce in February after almost seven years of marriage

Kim Kardashian West wants what's best for ex Kanye West.

Following the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star's divorce filing in February, the rapper started dating model Irina Shayk — and according a source, he has Kardashian's support as the former couple navigates co-parenting their four children.

"Kim is fine with Kanye dating," a source tells PEOPLE. "She just wants him to be happy."

The source adds that Kardashian, 40, and West, 44 — who share daughters North, 7, and Chicago, 3, as well as sons Saint, 5, and Psalm, 2 — are focused on their kids amid the divorce proceedings.

"Kanye is keeping things amicable with Kim so the kids can be happy," the source says. "They have been spending time together as a family."

The stars split earlier this year after nearly seven years of marriage. At the time of Kardashian's divorce filing, a source told PEOPLE the two were in agreement over joint legal and physical custody and that neither was contesting the prenup in place.

West submitted a response to the divorce filing in April and requested joint legal and physical custody of their children, according to documents previously obtained by PEOPLE.

In June, West and Shayk were spotted together celebrating his birthday in France. A source told PEOPLE he had "started pursuing her a few weeks ago" and that they had also spent time together in New York City, where she lives.

Last week, following reports that they were cooling off, a source told PEOPLE that West and Shayk, 35, are "very much still dating."

As for Kardashian, a source told PEOPLE last month that she "wants to date," and "doesn't see herself being single for the rest of her life."

"Her priorities are her kids and work," the source said. "But she would love to find a guy to share her life with."
