As Kim Kardashian’s messy ongoing divorce from rapper Kanye West continues to dominate headlines, the reality star has opened up about having a “challenging year” as the pandemic rages on and her marital struggles play out as well as how spending time with family has been “priceless” throughout this difficult time.
“I think this year has been challenging for so many people but I also think that this year was a huge cleanse and just a huge opportunity for people to really be grateful for the simple things and that is a huge — I think awakening that some people had,” she said on Good Morning Vogue.
The KKW Beauty founder continued: “I always try to look at things in a positive way. Even though it has been such a challenging year, it’s a time to regenerate, get creative, spend so much time with family. Just this time I’ve been able to spend with my children has been priceless.”
As OK! previously reported, Kardashian officially filed for divorce from West on February 19. Sources say that Kardashian is seeking joint legal and physical custody of the couple's four children: North, 7, Saint, 5, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 21 months.
After officially filing for divorce last month following seven years of marriage, Kardashian and West’s relationship has reportedly taken a nasty turn, as OK! learned the estranged exes are allegedly no longer on speaking terms.
A source claimed that West went as far as to change “his number” and told Kardashian to only “contact me through my security.” The former flames are still committed to co-parenting their four children. The insider stressed that although the parents aren’t directly communicating, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star still “trusts” West around their kids. “He loves them and is seeing a lot of them,” the source added.
Their current arrangement is that the reality TV star “leaves the house and [West] arrives and hangs out with the kids,” the source dished, noting that “they have an army of nannies so the transition is easy.”
As far as the future is concerned, Kardashian told Vogue that she is reassessing her relationship with work and how she wants to spend her time with her kids, saying that when she does “start to fill” her plate “back up” with projects, she hopes to only do things that make her happy.
“I used to work non stop and I would have done anything and everything at all hours and never take into consideration just slowing down at all…,” she concluded.
