Kim Kardashian, the reality TV icon, was spotted in tears during an emotional moment with her sister Khloe on the latest episode of ‘The Kardashians’. As reported by People Magazine, the new installment of their hit show airs on Hulu and marks yet another reference to Kim’s former husband, Kanye West, who recently changed his name to Ye.
Khloe noticed something amiss as soon as she posed the question of how Kim was faring, to which Kim responded “not okay.” She went on to express her longing for the man she once married, implying that the version of him she knew seemed quite different from what he had become. “I’ll do anything to get that person back,” was Kardashian’s emotional response.
This isn’t the first time viewers have seen Kim’s struggle over her relationship with West, following a previous episode in which she addressed the unsettling online attacks her family experienced throughout their partnership – all while attempting to cope with his erratic behavior. It seems that this heart-wrenching event is no doubt a reflection of the immense toll this public breakdown has taken on them.
“It’s been incredibly difficult to watch someone you love and who you have a family with just be so different from who you knew,” she said during the episode.
In 2016, rapper Kanye West sparked controversy with his vocal support of Donald Trump and other incendiary statements. After six years of marriage and four children together, it seemed to mark the beginning of the end for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West – until 2020, when West’s struggles with bipolar disorder became public knowledge. This led to a wave of compassion from fans across the world.
However, despite this seeming reprieve in their relationship, in 2021 Kim Kardashian filed for divorce. November 2022 marked an official agreement between the two stars, officially ending their marriage. As they embark on this new journey apart, the public is likely to carefully follow their separate ends of the story over time.
