Marie Claire claims they heard about the Kardashian divorce the same time we did. According to Fashionista, the interview in their December 2011 issue clearly took place during their union, with Kim saying: “I feel like where [Kris and I are] right now is the best time in my life,” and, “We have a lot of trust, and I don’t think either of us would do anything to break that.
