Kim Kardashian has said she was almost a "runaway bride" before going through with her 72-day marriage with professional basketball player Kris Humphries.

During a reunion special of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, which ended last week after 14 years, the reality TV star sat down with her sisters where she discussed her failed marriages and her love life following her split from Kanye West earlier this year.

She revealed that she had cold feet before tying the knot to Humphries in August 2011, only to file for divorce the following October.

Her mother Kris Jenner offered her an escape route on the eve of her wedding but she turned it down for fear of being "known as the runaway bride forever".

She also denied claims the doomed wedding was a ploy to boost Keeping Up With The Kardashians ratings and admitted she felt "pressured" to go through with it.

"I felt like I was going to let everyone down," she said, explaining that she realised she had made the wrong decision when they arrived in Italy for their honeymoon.

Kardashian said she "absolutely" owes her ex-husband an apology.

She said: "He’s very faith-based so I’m sure he would’ve loved to not have a marriage on his record. He wanted an annulment.

"The only legal way to get an annulment is if fraud is involved. So he marked fraud to get an annulment."

Kim Kardashian realised she was in love with Kanye West after split from Kris Humphries

She realised she was in love with superstar rapper West six months after her split from Humphries.

Asked why they split, she said: "I honestly don’t think I would say it here on TV, but it was not one specific thing that happened on either part. It was just a general difference of opinions on a few things that led to this decision and in no way would I want someone to think I didn’t give it my all, or not really try."

Speaking about their relationship since the split, Kardashian West said they have an "amazing co-parenting" arrangement.

"So I can’t see that going away," she said. "I will forever be Kanye’s biggest fan. He’s the father of my kids. Kanye will always be family."

The TV star and businesswoman also dismissed rumours she was seeing lawyer Van Jones or Colombian singer Maluma and said she could see herself dating a non-celebrity.

The second part of the Keeping Up With The Kardashians reunion special is due to be broadcast next week.
