“She made a decision based on whatever feelings she had,” Jenner, 55, said Tuesday.
“I didn’t interrogate her. She’s not the first person in the world to get a divorce or to have something like this happen to, and she won’t be the last … People have to stop judging.”
Jenner said she believed Kim is mature enough to make a difficult decision on her own.
“For whatever reason, Kim felt [divorce] was the decision for her,” the Kardashian matriarch said. “I can’t judge her and I can’t speculate.”
“Kim needed to make a very difficult decision and she needed to do that on her own,” she added.
“She’s not five years old. She’s a 30-year-old woman who definitely needs my support right now … It’s not something that she thought would ever not be happily ever after.”
Kris Jenner has been married to her husband Bruce for 20 years.
