Kim Kardashian shares what she did that led to split from Kanye West
Keeping up with Kimye’s divorce saga.
As we come up on a year after Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from Kanye “Ye” West, the 41-year-old reality star is finally sharing what led to the dissolution of one of Hollywood’s most popular unions.
“For so long, I did what made other people happy,” Kardashian said in Vogue’s March cover story. “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.”
This decade of Kardashian’s life is “about being Team Me,” she explained, noting she’ll be focusing on staying healthy and will “have more fun, spend more time with my kids and the people who make me happy ... put my phone down.”
While ending a relationship is never seamless, Kardashian said she believes in being “your co-parent’s biggest cheerleader, no matter what you’re personally going through,” to make things as amicable as possible in front of the kids. That is, except for when Ye, 44, publicly objected earlier this month to daughter North being on TikTok and Kardashian issued a rare statement in which she requested that “all matters regarding our children” remain behind closed doors.
Kardashian, who last year filed to be made legally single, also did not comment on her relationship with Pete Davidson, who recently labeled her his girlfriend, but did reference their reported trip they took to Bahamas at the start of the year.
“I was in the Bahamas, and the people I was with said, ‘We’re on f—ing vacation. We haven’t been on vacation in a long time. And then they threw their phones in the ocean,” recalled Kardashian. “I was like, ‘What? What? What? Am I allowed to do that?”
West, 44, on Wednesday took to Instagram with images of the cover shoot, including those of the couple’s kids, which he captioned: “GOD PLEASE BRING OUR FAMILY BACK TOGETHER.”
