Kim Kardashian admitted to her family through tears that she felt like a failure amid the disintegration of her marriage to Kanye West.
Her breakdown was made public in a flashback clip that aired during Thursday’s episode of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.”
“I feel like a f**king failure, that it’s like, a third f**king marriage,” Kardashian said, according to Page Six. “Yeah I feel like a f**king loser. But I can’t even think about that like, I want to be happy.”
Earlier this year Kardashian filed for divorce from West but they were still trying to navigate their problems during the time that the clip was filmed. As she sobbed, Kardashian admitted West needed a wife who would support him by following him across states.
“I honestly can’t do this anymore,” she said. “Why am I still in this like, place where I’m stuck for years? Like, he goes and moves to a different state, every year, I have to be together so I can raise the kids, you know? And he’s an amazing dad, he’s done an amazing job …”
Kardashian added, “I think he deserves someone that can go support his every move, go follow him all over the place and move to Wyoming — I can’t do that. He should have a wife that supports his every move and travels with him and does everything.”
Rumors of their split had been circulating months before the news was confirmed and things had reportedly been strained between the pair long before the divorce filing. In July 2020, West made the shocking revelation that he had been considering divorcing Kardashian since November 2018, according to a report by People at the time. Days later insiders confirmed that the pair had been discussing divorce for several weeks.
“They are just not on the same page when it comes to their future as a family. And Kim is okay with it,” another source told People.
Although things have been strained between West and Kardashian, she still wants her estranged husband to be part of their children’s lives. They share daughters North, 7, and Chicago, 3, and sons Saint, 5, and Psalm, 1.
“Kim has made it clear that Kanye can talk to his children anytime he wants,” the source explained. “She has never threatened to keep him from the kids. She only requires that he is not going to damage them. Kanye can FaceTime the kids anytime he wants. He hasn’t been great about that, but everyone is encouraging him to do it.”
