The reality star opened up to her mum, Kris, in the reality shows finale - which aired on June 10. She explained how reflecting on her life caused her to see the need to separate from the rapper and fashion mogul.

Kim spoke to her mum and manager about feeling lonely despite being married, saying: “I just feel like I’ve worked so hard in life, to achieve everything that I wanted to… but I don’t have a life to share that with".

She continued: “I do, obviously, my kids and everything, but am I just gonna sit here and think, ‘Okay, my kids fulfil me and I’m good?’”

The 40-year-old beauty mogul continued to discuss the idea that she didn't have anyone to share her life with, saying: “I never thought I was lonely. 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."

The reality star then explained how turning 40 made her see that what she desired in life was "total happiness" saying: "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 that is sad to me and that’s not what I want.”
