The mum-of-four, now 41, split from husband Kanye West over a year ago and their divorce has been in the process for months.

Earlier this week he begged for their family to reunite and posted the photo shoot of Kim and their kids in Vogue to publicly reach out to his wife.

In the interview, Kim opened up on what led to their divorce, saying she decided to put herself first.

“For so long, I did what made other people happy,” she explained. “And I think in the last two years I decided, I’m going to make myself happy.

“And that feels really good. And even if that created changes and caused my divorce, I think it’s important to be honest with yourself about what really makes you happy. I’ve chosen myself. I think it’s okay to choose you.”

She elaborated: “My 40s are about being Team Me. I’m going to eat well. I’m going to work out. I’m going to have more fun, spend more time with my kids and the people who make me happy. I’m going to put my phone down.

“Unfollow if I don’t want to see something on Instagram. Khloé came up with the best phrase for that yesterday. She said, ‘Post and ghost.’”

After Kim’s interview was published, Kanye took to Instagram to share some photos of their children on the shoot.

“GOD PLEASE BRING OUR FAMILY BACK TOGETHER,” he wrote.

It was the second public statement Kanye’s made reaching out to his ex-wife, but she’s made her wishes clear that when it comes to their children, things must remain private.
