Kim Kardashian has opened up about her reasons for divorcing Kanye West in the final episode of Keeping up With the Kardashians.

In the season finale (and last ever episode), which aired in the US on 10 June, Kim discussed her relationship with Kanye in scenes filmed after Kim turned 40 in October last year, before eventually filing for divorce in February 2021.

Sharing that she'd spoken to a therapist and realised she was unhappily married, Kim told mum Kris Jenner, "I just want total happiness."

"Obviously, I know complete bliss is not a full reality but if I can have it more the majority of the time, that's all I want to do. Wherever that takes me I just want my pure happiness. So that's what I'm working on, figuring out how to get there."

Kim went on to explain, "I just feel I've worked so hard in life to achieve everything that I wanted to and I lived up to my expectations and achieved 10 times more than I even thought was humanly possible but I don't have a life to share that with."

She continued, "I never thought I was lonely, and I always thought that's totally fine, I can just have my kids, my husband moves from state to state and I'm on this ride with him and I was OK with that.

"And then 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. I want someone that we have the same shows in common, I want someone that wants to work out with me."

Kim also added that she was "envious" of sister Khloe's relationship with Tristan Thompson, and that they're able to share "the little things" together.
