Fearing Kim was hiding her emotions from the family, Kris was shocked when she discovered that not only was she doing well, she was going to therapy and looking forward to the future.
In a frank chat, Kim tells her that turning 40 proved to be a massive turning point, with her relationship with Kanye becoming more distant.
She said: “I never thought I was lonely, and I always thought ‘that’s totally fine, I could just have my kids, my husband moves from state to state, and I just am on this ride with him’, and I was okay with that.
“Then after turning 40 this year, I realised no, I don’t want a husband that lives in a completely different state.
“To me, I thought ‘Oh my God, that’s when we’re getting along the best’, but then that is sad to me, and that’s not what I want.”
“I want someone that we have the same shows in common,” she continued. “I want someone that wants to work out with me. Like every single day Khloe and Tristan and I would work out at 6am three of us and I was third-wheeling it for a good eight months in quarantine, and I was so envious of that.
“I was like ‘wow’. It’s like, the little things is what I don’t have. I have all the big things. I have the extravagant, everything you could possibly imagine and no one will ever do it like that, I know that, and I’m grateful for those experiences, but I think I’m ready for the smaller experiences that I think will mean a lot.”
An emotional Kris is seen bursting into tears, and then admits to Kim: “I just want you to be happy and joyful. And I think I haven’t seen that in a really long time.”
“I’m numb. Like, I’m tired of that, but I do know that I will be happy,” Kim assures her.
“I didn’t come this far just to come this far, and not be happy.”
Kim and Kanye’s divorce plans were confirmed in February this year , with leaked documents reporting ‘irreconcilable differences’ between the couple.
Kanye has now been linked to model Irina Shayk, having been seen together in Provence, France on holiday.
