During the Keeping Up with the Kardashians reunion episode last week, Kardashian revealed how she feels bad for the way things ended between herself and her ex-husband, Kris Humphries.
In the special, host Andy Cohen addressed the former couple’s infamous 2-day marriage. To which Kardashian admitted she had a nervousness about the coupling and admitted she felt “pressured” as the wedding ceremony was being filmed for KUWTK.
Kris Jenner revealed how the night before Kardashian and Humphries’ rehearsal dinner, she attempted to talk her daughter out of the wedding.
“What you said to me is: ‘I’m going to put you in a car, no one will find you, just leave and I’ll handle it,'” Kardashian, 40, recalled her mom saying. “And I thought, ‘Okay, we’re filming this for a TV show. If I leave, I’m going to be known as the runaway bride forever and it’s going to be a huge joke, and I think I just have cold feet.’ So I was like, ‘Okay guys, it’s just cold feet, I got this, it’s cold feet, we’re filming the show.'”
Kardashian then shut down rumors that her wedding to Humphries, 36, was a publicity stunt.
“The show paid us, obviously, a fee to film the show. I took my entire fee and probably Kris’ because I wanted a bigger wedding than what they were going to pay for,” she said. “So I used all of our production money on the wedding, right. So, if that was fake, I would have saved my money.”
“Would you say you partially went through with the wedding because of the show?” Cohen, 53, asked. “Yes,” Kardashian replied. “Because I felt pressured, I felt like I was going to let everyone down.”
Kardashian went on to reveal how at one point in the marriage, she felt “claustrophobic” while they were living together.
“He had a size like, 17 shoes lined up around my whole room and I just freaked the f- out,” she said. “I literally got claustrophobic. We were living in a hotel.”
It was then Kardashian admitted that she handled their breakup “the wrong way,” and owes him an apology.
“I was so nervous to break up with someone, I handled it totally the wrong way,” she shared. “I fully broke up with him in the worst way, and I couldn’t, I just didn’t know how to deal, I learned so much from it.”
“Do you think you owe him an apology?” Cohen asked, to which Kardashian replied, “Absolutely, and I tried to, I tried calling him for months.”
Kardashian later revealed how Humphries wanted an annulment of their marriage rather than a divorce, but she insisted on the divorce. But she admits that if she were to go back in time, she would have done things differently.
“I wish I was only married once,” she said.
