Finally, Kim is legally single and it seems she has never been happier.
Legally single and living her best life, Kim Kardashian is back!
As you surely know, it has been quite a turbulent year for Kim. After filing for separation from Kanye West in February 2021, their messy divorce process has become increasingly complicated as time has gone on.
But, finally, her request to formally end their marriage was passed in court earlier this month, marking a huge turning point for the mom of four.
In her first appearance on a talk show after the milestone, Kim passed Ellen De Generes’ show to lift the lid on single life. And despite the chaos of the past few months in particular, she looks more refreshed than ever.
From the moment she sat down, one topic Ellen was eager to hear about was Kim’s brand new relationship with Pete Davidson. And as you may know, the unlikely duo recently marked a rather special milestone.
“I guess it’s not official until you post,” Kim joked about making Instagram official with her new boyfriend last week, which fans will know would be a long time coming.
“I have the cutest photos of us and I want to be like, oh my god, we’re so cute. But then I’m like, don’t be so desperate. Don’t post so much, check it out, ”she said, before continuing to share how she’s adapting to dating in the spotlight.
“I don’t know what the right thing to do is, like, I haven’t been out before Instagram existed. Yeah, I don’t know what the rules are, ”she said, smiling from ear to ear.
Kim’s excitement when she spoke about the subject prompted Ellen to comment on the palpable change in her energy: “I see a change in you, a convenience to you, a completely different side,” the host said.
And after a rather difficult start to the year, Kim said it’s “good” to find happiness in her 40s.
“I think it’s just in life, like, whatever it is, I just think I encourage my friends and the people I love to just be happy. And I went there, ”she began.
“I was like, you know what? I’m 40, like, fuck it, try it. Find your happiness. I went there and took my time. I found it and it’s so beautiful, “shared Kim, adding,” I want to hold it tight forever. “
From her relaxed posture to her overall bubbly, Ellen was certainly right in saying this is the happiest we’ve seen Kim in a long time.
Indeed, as her marriage to Kanye collapsed before her eyes during 2020, Kim revealed she felt “numb” from sadness and revealed during an episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians that it had been years since she had truly felt herself.
With this in mind, Ellen is not the only one to have grasped the total shift in Kim’s energy. After the interview surfaced online Wednesday, social media was flooded with comments about the mogul’s carefree glow.
“This is really shocking,” someone wrote under the clip on YouTube. “It’s like he’s a new person, he’s radiating so much new energy. I really hope he’s happy. “
“It glows with happiness. I don’t think we’ve ever seen her so happy, “wrote another.” Good for her. “
“The way that ILLUMINA and IRRADIA and IRRADIA and FONDA of happiness all alone from talking about Pete literally makes my heart explode,” added someone else. “He deserves this happiness. Love them together !!!”
Fans also couldn’t help but notice that when Kim talked about Pete, she embodied a rare type of vertigo we don’t usually associate with the Kardashians and their orchestrated image, especially Kim, who is proud to always be composed. .
“Aw, she’s like a school girl,” someone commented. “I am very happy for her. I think Pete is a guy [breath of fresh] air for Kim. I like them a lot together. “
They continued: “Pete is a good guy and I think for Kim being with him is less pressure. It’s like she can be herself and have fun. I love that it’s Pete [able to show] she is the more “normal” side of life. Kanye was right [too] Very….”
Others pointed out that Kim seemed to remember her past self, with one fan speculating that she is now able to freely express her personality without modeling herself on Kanye’s wishes now that they are no longer together.
“I love her in this interview. So she and herself aren’t trying so hard to be what Kanye wants her to be, “they said.
Longtime Kardashian fans will know that over the course of their relationship, Ye had a huge say in Kim’s overall image and was even credited with completely “revolutionizing” her style and making her the fashion icon that is today.
And while Ye’s influence worked for Kim’s benefit throughout their marriage, her post-split style seems to embody this newfound sense of ease.
While giving up her Yeezy sneakers in favor of $ 65 Vans in her off-duty looks, Kim’s hair has also undergone a transformation, with her reuniting with the glamorous hairstyles she wore early in her career.
The tousled bun she chose for her looks Elena reminiscent of a pre-Kanye Kim, a far cry from the straight, sleek look that defined her Yeezy era.
In addition to her style, Kim’s overall sense of composition and control also appears to have been reduced in the wake of her divorce.
Where her responses to the interview were once clearly calculated and composed for the sake of the Kimye brand, Kim’s responses to Ellen this time felt much more immediate and natural, with her sincere statements and even accidental expletives.
Also, it appears that after the divorce Kim is inclined to embrace new things.
One of the biggest results of the interview was the revelation that Pete had cemented their relationship by getting a series of tattoos in his honor. Not only that, but Kim revealed – with sheer delight, we might add – that the Live Saturday night star literally branded her name on the chest.
Of course, if you are a true Kardashian superfan, you will be very familiar with Kim’s negative stance on tattoos. But it seems that her newfound sense of spontaneity inspired a more open view on being inked.
Along with his tattoos, the notoriously health conscious Kim appears to have accepted Pete’s smoking habits as well. In their recent Instagram debut, Pete can be seen holding a cigarette as he lies down against Kim, who previously said he thinks smoking is “tasting. “
Even as recently as yesterday, Kim – who notoriously hates any kind of performance – shocked fans by uploading audio clips of herself singing out loud with her kids.
But, if you’ve been keeping up with Kim’s post-split antics, you might have foreseen her new lighthearted take on life.
Since their first outing at a theme park last fall, Kim and Pete have been spotted on a whole slew of laid-back dates. From cheap pizza chains to mall trips, the two have made it clear that even billionaires can enjoy the little things life has to offer!
And Kim’s new approach to enjoying the little things in life is, of course, in direct contrast to the way she and Ye operated. Grand gestures have been an important part of their relationship from the very beginning, from renting entire stadiums to hosting private concerts in their home.
However, far from the extravagance of their marriage, Kim deeply desired a more intimate partnership based on common interests and an appreciation for the simpler things in life.
“It’s the little things I don’t have,” Kim admitted during a conversation with Kris Jenner during the final episode of KUWT.
“I have all the great things. I have [everything] extravagant you could imagine. And no one will ever do it like that [again]. I’m grateful for those experiences, but I think I’m ready for the smaller experiences which I think will mean a lot, ”she continued.
Now, fans are thrilled to see Kim with a newfound sense of freedom, truly living her best life.
