Kim Kardashian says making the decision to put herself first contributed to the breakdown of her marriage to Kanye West.

In an interview with Vogue for her upcoming cover story, Kardashian opened up about prioritising her own happiness — something which she said "caused" her divorce.

The 41-year-old reality star told reporters, "For so long, I did what made other people happy and I think in the last two years I decided, I'm going to make myself happy."

"And that feels really good. And even if that created changes and caused my divorce, I think it's important to be honest with yourself about what really makes you happy. I've chosen myself. I think it's okay to choose you."

Kardashian also touched on her mindset heading into her 40s saying, "My 40s are about being Team Me. I'm going to eat well. I'm going to work out. I'm going to have more fun, spend more time with my kids and the people who make me happy."

Kardashian reflected on her relationship with West, who heavily influenced her fashion choices during their almost seven-year marriage: "I always think, What will be next? Because I always had Kanye, who knew exactly what the next fashion era would be for me."
