Kanye West has unfollowed Kim Kardashian and her sisters on Twitter after he made his newfound romance with Irina Shayk public.

In the series finale of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, filmed prior to her divorce filing, Kim revealed her hopes for a relationship with someone who loved working out with her and who also loved watching the same TV shows she did.
Reflecting on her life and marriage to Kanye during an intimate conversation with her mother Kris Jenner, Kim confessed that she had accomplished everything she set her sights on but had no partner to share it with.
About what she’s looking for now, she told her mother, “I’ve got the extravagant, everything you can imagine… But… I think I’m ready for the smaller experiences.”
And while Kim admitted that she initially felt satisfied with just their four kids while Kanye lived hundreds of miles away in Wyoming, that all changed when she turned 40 and started to reassess her values.
“I have lived up to my expectations and achieved ten times more than I humanly thought possible. But I don’t have a life to share that with.

‘Like I do. Of course, my kids and everything. But do I just sit here and think, “Okay, my kids are fulfilling me and I’m good?”
“And then I never thought I was lonely, and I always thought that was totally fine. I could just have my kids. My husband moves from state to state and I ride with him. And I thought that was okay.’
Kim admitted she got along best with Kanye when they were living apart, a fact she wasn’t proud of.
“And then, after I turned 40 this year, I realized, No, I don’t want a man who lives in a completely different state. For me I thought, oh my God, that’s when we get along best. But then I think that’s a shame and that’s not what I want.
“I want someone we have the same shows in common. I want someone who wants to exercise with me.’

Kim even revealed that she had become jealous of working out with her sister Khloe and her boyfriend Tristan Thompson every morning during quarantine.
The superstar felt like she was “riding the third wheel” with the couple.
“Like every day, Khloe and Tristan and I trained at six in the morning, the three of us, and I rode it for the third time for a good, you know, eight months in quarantine. And I was so jealous of that.’
And while Kim admits she has everything she could ever want and more, she admitted it was the little things she looked for in a partner.

“I’ve got the extravagant, everything you can imagine, and no one will ever do it like that. I know that. You know what I mean? And I am grateful for those experiences. But… I think I’m ready for the smaller experiences that I think will mean a lot.”
Kris then gets emotional when she says to Kim, “I just want you to be happy and happy. And I don’t think I’ve seen that in a long time.’
“It breaks my heart because I just want them to be happy,” Kris says in a confessional. “And I want her to be happy and have the best relationship she can possibly have. And she has four beautiful children, and I just want them to be happy.”

Kim admits she’s “numb” at the moment and says she won’t cry in front of Kris, but says, “I know I’ll be happy. I didn’t come this far just to get this far, not to be happy. Remember that.’
“Calmness is my superpower,” Kim says, after Kris finds herself a “very strong girl” who handles everything calmly.
