Kim Kardashian reveals ‘deep depression’
Monday 18 June 2012
Kim Kardashian has given a candid interview to Oprah Winfrey, in which she has spoken about the deep depression that gripped her after the end of her 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries.
She also used the interview to deny that the relationship was a hoax, insisting that her fan base was strong enough that she didn’t need to stage drama to keep viewing figures up.
Speaking to Oprah, the reality star, 31, said there was ‘still a place in my heart’ for her ex-husband going on to explain that the pair hadn’t spent enough getting to know each other before the wedding.
'I thinkwhen people first meet, everything is great in the beginning, but I didn't spend more than a whole week with my ex before we married.
'When wemoved in together, I saw how our relationship was... I don't want to get into the small things, but once we moved in, I knew he was not the one.'
Asked about her pre wedding nerves, Kim said she didn’t have any inkling that she was making a mistake, though her mum Kris poignantly asked her “Do you want out?” to which Kim reacted angrily.
She went on to explain that although she had taken a pounding from some fans and media outlets, she felt she had made the right decision.
She said: 'You know in your heart. Mum was supportive, so I took that time off afterwards... I would rather have been beaten up in the media than live a life that wasn't happy.
'I was in such a deep depression I thought I was going to back away from everything. I stayed at home for almost four months and I'm a better person now, as heartbreaking as it was to go through.'
Kim added: 'For anyone I hurt, I'm truly sorry, I don't wish pain on anyone, but the person I am because of that crazy experience, I wouldn't change it for the world.
'I lovedhim, obviously it hurt him, and it hurt me too. It was embarrassing, I don't want to call it a mistake, it was a lesson.'
