Kris points out that’s why her decision to divorce West, 45, ended up being the best option. In a confessional, Kim said, “It’s the hardest feeling to watch someone you really loved and you have a family with be so different than what you knew.” Unable to believe that North is “hearing something” online or on television, but “maybe she won’t say it. That’s what breaks my heart.”
However, Kim assured her mom that none of her four kids are aware of the drama. “When stuff is said, it’s a chain to my whole household. No TV — only Apple TV,” she revealed, explaining she “can’t risk” them catching a news headline from outlets like Access Hollywood. “I have to figure out a way to protect, and so they still haven’t seen anything, but I go into crisis mode,” Kardashian admitted in the confessional. “I am the one being accused for and being blamed for so many things. And it really, really is hurtful and it sucks, but I can control how I react, and I can control if I’m a mess. Then my kids will see that.”
An emotional Kim told her mom she believes that “one day, my kids will appreciate my silence, my understanding, and my grace, and I will try to keep it together at all times.”
