Kim Kardashian West has said that she thought her career was over following her split from second husband Kris Humphries after 72 days in 2011. 

In an interview on media and marketing website The Drum, the reality TV star said: "When I was going through the divorce I did say to everyone, 'You guys [her family], I think our careers are over'."

She continued: "'I hope you've saved your money. And now we'll just continue to do our clothing stores and what we started off doing before the show'. I totally thought it was over."

"I was being very paranoid," she said. "I just took some time off and the time was really good for me."

Kardashian West added: "I cancelled everything. I had a book to write, a fragrance launch, I had everything that you could possibly imagine. And I just... I cancelled it all and I took time for me."
