Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s divorce had been in the works for months by the time it was finally announced earlier this year, new clips from an episode of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians”.
The KKW Beauty founder broke down in an episode that aired Thursday while traveling to Lake Tahoe with her family. On the show, filmed in November 2020, younger sister Khloe Kardashian tells the camera about her sister’s relationship difficulties.
“It’s difficult because Kim is clearly redirecting a lot of her frustration, sadness and anger,” Khloe explains after a scene in which Kim lashes out at cookies left on the kitchen counter. “Sometimes you just do something that has nothing to do with what you’re going through. ”
In another scene, Khloe questions Kim at close range about her relationship with West, Kim’s husband of nearly seven years.
“There is no fight. Like, now it’s all calm, so I just go with it, you know? Kim responds.
In another moment, Khloe says via a confessional that Kim and Kanye had a fight before the trip to Lake Tahoe. A flashback video shows Kim sobbing and talking to her sisters Kourtney, Kendall and Kylie about what’s going on with West.
During her breakdown, Kim says she thinks West deserves someone who “can go with her every move.”
“He should have a wife who supports his every move and travels with him and does everything and I can’t. I feel like I’ve failed and it’s like a third king’s marriage. Yeah, I feel like a big loser, ”she said through tears. In what is presumably a reference to divorce, she adds, “But I can’t even think about it. I want to be happy.”
Khloe continues in a confessional that Kim is trying “to protect their union at all costs, but it’s hard when you carry that responsibility on your shoulders.”
“I just want her to take care of herself, too,” says the founder of Good American.
In February, Kim filed for divorce from West, with whom she shares four children: daughters North, 7, and Chicago, 3; and their sons Saint, 5, and Psalm, 2. The couple agreed their marriage ended due to irreconcilable differences and settled joint custody of their children in April. They also agreed that there would be no spousal support.
