American Tv personality Kim Kardashian has revealed what ultimately drove her to split from her husband Kanye West, during the final episode of the family's reality T.V. show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians. The 40-year-old stated that her marriage was doomed as she was seeking "total happiness".


The final episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians featured Kim explaining to her mother, Kris Jenner, why her marriage with Kanye was failing.

In scenes filmed after Kim turned 40 in October last year, Kim said she had been speaking to a therapist and realised she was unhappily married.


"I just want total happiness," she told her mother. "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."

Kim continued: "Wherever that takes me I just want my pure happiness. So that's what I'm working on, figuring out how to get there.

"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."


"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'".

Kim added: "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 filed for divorce in February after tying the knot in 2014.

Kim and West share children North, seven, Saint, five, Chicago, three and two-year-old Psalm.

She said she was lonely after he moved to a ranch in Wyoming while she stayed in California.
