Going through a divorce and co-parenting has been a balancing act for Kim Kardashian. During an appearance on Angie Martinez's "Angie Martinez IRL" podcast published Monday on YouTube, Kardashian candidly spoke about her separation from Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, and the struggles of co-parenting their four children: North, 9, Saint, 7, Chicago, 4, and Psalm, 3. "That will always follow me," Kardashian said of the public discourse surrounding her split from Ye, which the two announced in February 2021. Martinez asked the Skims founder whether it was a "conscious thing" to refrain from publicly discussing her divorce and relationship with the father of her children in order to "protect" them.
On the verge of tears, Kardashian, who was also the child of divorced parents Kris Jenner and the late Robert Kardashian, recalled having "the best dad" growing up. "I don't mean to get emotional, it's just been a day for me," she said. "You know, it's hard. Co-parenting is hard. It's really (expletive) hard. But I had the best dad, and I had the best memories and the greatest experience. That's all I want for my kids. As long as they can have that, that's what I would want for them." In November, Kardashian and Ye reached a settlement in their divorce, averting a trial that had been set for this month. The former couple and their attorneys filed documents asking for a judge's approval of terms they have agreed on, including $200,000 per month in child support payments from Ye to Kardashian. The two will also have joint custody and neither will pay the other spousal support, according to court documents filed in Los Angeles Superior Court. The settlement proposal also states the two will equally split the expenses for the kids' private security and private school, including college. They will also each pay their own debts, the settlement said. The two had a pre-nuptial agreement and kept their property largely separate. The judge declared the two legally single at Kardashian’s request in March, ending their eight-year marriage, but issues of property and custody remained that were to be worked out in a trial starting Dec. 14.

The source said: Kim is doing great
"She was really struggling around the time she filed for divorce. She was very upset about it and really didn't want to file. “She has come a long way since she filed for divorce, though. She's very happy and convinced that she made the right decision." However, scenes in the most recent episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians showed Kim struggling with her divorce. She is shown saying: "He should have a wife that supports his every move and travels with him and does everything and I can’t. "I feel like a f***ing failure and it's like a third f***ng marriage. Yeah I feel like a f***ng loser.” "I definitely protected him and I still will in the eyes of my kids for my kids. In my home, my kids don’t know anything that goes on on the outside world ... I’m holding on by a thread,” she said. "I know I’m so close to that not happening. While that’s still happening, I will protect that to the ends of the earth as long as I can." Here's hoping that things will be peaceful between Kim and Ye in the coming year. Co-parenting is stressful enough even when it's going well.
