The 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star was married to the basketball player for just 72 days back in 2011 before she called time on their romance but she doesn't regret the short-lived relationship as she believed it helped her work out what she really wanted.

Speaking in a special edition of the family's E! reality show to mark 10 years on air, she said "Right before I got married to Kris Humphries we were like talking and I just went a different direction. And I think I had to go through that to figure out what I wanted."

Asked by host Ryan Seacrest if Kanye was "pursuing" her whilst she was getting married to Kris, she added: "We were friends and we were talking, yes," and when asked if he was talking or pursuing, she said coyly: "I don't really know. I can't remember. Probably all of the above."

Meanwhile, Kim previously admitted she thought her career was "over" after she divorced Kris.

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.

"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."
