  • Kim Kardashian filed paperwork to be declared legally single amid her divorce from Kanye West to make a statement, a report says

  • West begged Kardashian to "run back" to him during the Free Larry Hoover Benefit Concert Thursday

Kim Kardashian wants to be declared legally single amid her ongoing divorce from Kanye West because she's embarrassed by his recent attempts to win her back, according to a report.

Kardashian, 41, and West, 44 — who now goes by Ye — called it quits earlier this year after six years of marriage. Both stars initially appeared to have moved on, having been linked to other people since she filed for divorce in February, but the rapper has made several public pleas to reconcile with the reality star since last month.

Kardashian, however, seemed to make her opinion of his public pleas clear with her recent filing.

"Kim is making a statement by doubling down that she’s single," an unnamed source told Page Six. "She thinks it's strange that Kanye keeps saying he wants her back, but all the while he's got the [22-year-old] model [Vinetria] at his Malibu house."

Kardashian filed the paperwork in Los Angeles just hours after he professed his love for her during a performance of his track "Runaway" at the Free Larry Hoover concert at the Los Angeles Coliseum.

"I need you to run right back to me, baby. More specifically, Kimberly," West ad-libbed over vocals at the end of the song during the event, which Kardashian had attended.

If a judge signs off on the paperwork, she and West will be considered "legally single" as they continue to work out child custody and property amid their ongoing divorce. Kardashian also requested that her maiden name be restored, meaning that she'll drop the "West" from "Kim Kardashian West" if it's approved.

Amid her divorce, Kardashian has been dating "Saturday Night Live" star Pete Davidson. The two were first linked in October, after she made her hosting debut on the comedy sketch show, and have since been spotted spending time together on multiple occasions.

Meanwhile, reports first surfaced last month that West is dating Vinetria. The pair made their first public appearance together at Donda Academy's debut basketball game in Minneapolis on Nov. 6.

The 22-year-old model, who is the new face of Pat McGrath Labs, also posted photos to Instagram last week that appeared to have been taken on the balcony of West's Malibu mansion.

Amid the dating news, however, West insisted during an appearance on the "Drink Champs" podcast in November that Kardashian is "still" his wife and that he hasn't seen any divorce paperwork.

"My kids want their parents to stay together. I want us to be together," West said at the time.

An unnamed insider, however, told E! News that the "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" alum is not interested in rekindling her relationship with the father of her children because she had already "reached her breaking point" after trying to make their marriage work for a long time.

Kardashian and West share four kids: North, 8, Saint, 6, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 2.
