Earlier today, GQ revealed their new cover story with Kim Kardashian where she got very candid on some family details. Primarily she discussed divorce, both the divorce of her parents when she was just nine-years-old, and how she handled her divorce from Kanye West with her own children. Kim discussed being able to "feel" that something was wrong as a child even though she didn't know exactly what was going on. She also broke down how her experience as a kid informed how she handled divorce as an adult.

“Ultimately, what matters is that kids feel loved and heard,” Kim began. “You want to be sensitive because they’re just kids, and it’s hard to go through no matter what age. You have to make sure that you only go to a level that they can understand. It’s okay to show a vulnerable side. You never go to a negative side," she explained. Later in the piece, Kim's sisters describe the entire divorce experience as difficult, but ultimately a confidence builder for Kim. Check out the full interview below.
