Kim Kardashian West's career fear

Kim Kardashian West's career fear

Kim Kardashian West thought her career was "over" after she divorced Kris Humphries.

The 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star - whose marriage to the 30-year-old basketball player lasted only 72 days - says she told her family to "save their money".

She said: "At the time when I was going through the divorce I did say to everyone, 'You guys I think our careers are over. I hope you've saved your money. And now we'll just continue to do our clothing stores and continue to do what we started off doing before the show. I totally thought it was over."

In hindsight, the 34-year-old television personality has admitted she was just being "paranoid" but has insisted having time off helped her to cope.

She added to Drum magazine: "I was being very paranoid. I just took some time off and the time was really good for me. I cancelled everything.

"I had a book tour, I had a fragrance launch, I had everything that you could possibly imagine and I just cancelled it all and I took time for me."
