She thought this was it, this would be the man she spends the rest of her life with.

But Kim Kardashian has had to accept that it just wasn't meant to be. The star is heartbroken over her failed marriage to rapper Kanye West.

She says although she has her four children, she felt lonely in her marriage as her husband lived in a different state.

KimYe was a power couple the whole world couldn’t stop talking about, from their extravagant wedding and fashion to their four children. However, it seems as though the long-distance took a toll on the couple and in February Kim filed for divorce.

In the season finale of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kim opened up about the emotional turmoil she's been dealing with.

"I used to go to everyone for all the answers and all the problems. It's draining," Kim admitted. "I'm, like, an adult. I have a therapist. Let me work on myself and see where I'm at.

"Am I just going to sit here and think, 'OK my kids fulfill me and I'm good?' I never thought I was lonely. I just thought that was totally fine, I can just have my kids,” she said to her mother Kris Jenner.

She details why she felt lonely. 

"I want someone that we have the same shows in common. I want someone that wants to work out with me. It's the little things is what I don't have. I have all the big things. I have the extravagant everything you could possibly imagine and no one will ever do it like that. I'm grateful for those experiences but I think I'm ready for the small experiences that will mean a lot.

‘"My husband moves from state to state. I'm just on this ride with him and I was OK with that," Kim opened up. "And then after turning 40 this year, I realized like no, I don't want a husband that lives in a completely different state." 

Kanye West on the other hand has sparked dating rumours with model Irina Shayk.

Kanye recently celebrated his 44th birthday and according to the Daily Mail UK, the rapper was spotted spending time with the Russian model in Provence, France.

There are photos of the rumoured couple strolling together down a luxury 600-acre boutique hotel, named Villa La Coste.

The same day Kim Kardashian dedicated an Instagram post to Kanye with the caption “Happy Birthday Love U for Life!”

Neither Kanye nor Irina have confirmed the dating rumours.
