And despite their public split, the reality TV star has remained fairly tight-lipped about the end of their marriage. But in a new interview for Vogue‘s March 2022 cover storyKim offered rare insight into what led to the breakup.
“For so long, I did what made other people happy,” Kim, who wed Ye in 2014, said. “And I think in the last two years I decided, I’m going to make myself happy. And that feels really good. And even if that created changes and caused my divorce, I think it’s important to be honest with yourself about what really makes you happy. I’ve chosen myself. I think it’s okay to choose you. “
As Kim put it, her 40s are all about “being Team Me” and being her best self. “I’m going to eat well. I’m going to work out. I’m going to have more fun, spend more time with my kids and the people who make me happy,” the mom of North West8, Saint West6, Chicago West4, and Psalm West, 2 — continued. “I’m going to put my phone down.
