Kim Kardashian: Khloe Kardashian Avoided Pregnancy As 'Timing Wasn't Good'

Kim Kardashian, in an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live (23rd January), discussed her sister Khloe's fertility issues. Kardashian explained how, owing to the state of her marriage to now ex-husband Lamar Odom, Khloe felt it was not the right time to have a child.

Kardashian, who appeared on the show wearing a pink Dior dress, cut to show a sliver of stomach, stated "For so long, everyone in our family was feeling really sad for Khloe, thinking that she wasn't getting pregnant and everyone around her was." However, despite the family encouraging Khloe to see fertility specialists, the 33-year-old was unwilling to become pregnant, a factor Kardashian attributes to her sister's belief that timing was not right. She described how Khloe "was not showing up to these doctors' appointments behind our back on purpose and doing everything on purpose," deliberately not to get pregnant. Kardashian added, by way of explanation, "She knew that it wasn't right. She knew that she wasn't ready."

Following the interview, Kardashian felt it necessary to clarify on her comments. She took to Twitter and wrote: "I'm so tired of people twisting my words, Khloe did start fertility and she wanted to have a baby, but I believe in the middle of the process she realized timing wasn't good based on what was going on with her relationship. She was not ready to tell us everything so she stopped treatment without telling us."

Kardashian's comments about her sister follow speculation surrounding the reasons for Khloe's divorce from basketball player Lamar Odom. Khloe filed for divorce in December and rumours relating to their evidently turbulent relationship have continued. This includes why the couple, who married in 2009, did not have children. 

Kardashian also added her wedding to Kanye West will probably be taking place in Paris, France. She claimed the city was their "second home".  Kimmel's questions resulted from rumours which circulated last week concerning the possibility of the couple holding their wedding at the Palace of Versailles. However, they later confirmed they were simply visiting the elaborately decorated palace.
