The 40-year-old model shared that the couple decided to part ways mutually because of growing differences. Kim also mentioned that she tried to save the marriage with everything she had before breaking things off.
"It was not one specific thing that happened on either part I think it was just a general difference of opinions on a few things that led to this decision and in no way would I want someone to think I didn't give it my all or not really try."
Kim and Kanye share four children together and have agreed to continue co-parenting their kids. She also said that Kanye will always be her family.
“We have an amazing co-parenting relationship and I respect him so much. That was my friend first, first and foremost and that is never going away. I will forever be Kayne's biggest fan. He is the father of my kids. He will always be my family."

While talking about her self-made billion dollar venture at the reunion, Kylie also shared the reason behind her lip fillers. Kylie mentioned that it was her insecurity about the small size of her lips that led her to try her hands at makeup.
"I had an insecurity and then I got an obsession with make-up because I would over-line my lips and I would feel really confident about it. I obviously don't think about it now."
Kylie also addressed Travis Scott’s absence from KUWTK. Kylie, who shares daughter Stormi with Travis, mentioned that the latter did not want to be filmed at times and hence Kylie never pressured him to make his appearance.

Kourtney was quick to address the question and also shared why she highly favored the decision to end the show.
"I just felt like it wasn't productive. The time it was taking to film and the turnaround and then six months later the episode would air and it all just felt like a slightly toxic environment at times like we weren't enjoying it."
The Kardashian-Jenner family announced their decision to not renew KUWTK for the 21st season in September last year.
Even after its nostalgic farewell, “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” continues to be the most iconic reality show.
