Kim Kardashian and boyfriend of more than two years,Reggie Bush, announced their split last weekend. Although Kim seemed extremely happy and even certain the relationship would lead towards marriage, the couple didn’t make it. The sudden breakup was a shock to those around them, but apparently there has been problems in paradise for quite some time…
According to the newest issue of Life & Style, Kim was all smiles about her relationship last April. “I have no doubt we’ll get married,” she told Life & Style. “We’re both young, so it won’t be for a while, but I want to be a mom before I’m 30.”
Although several rumors surrounding the split involve cheating, friends of the couple say that it was the long distance that got in the way. Reggie is constantly traveling with the Saints, based out of New Orleans, while Kim’s career takes her all over the world on a moment’s notice.”It really wasn’t sudden,” says a friend of Reggie’s. “For the past few months, it’s been clear that although Reggie and Kim love each other, the distance had put a wedge in their relationship.” This was clearly seen in several episodes ofKeeping Up With the Kardashians,when Kim would suddenly have to cancel on Reggie because something came up.
Apparently, they both thought that the split was a good idea. “The decision was mutual,” another friend of Reggie’s says. “They talked and talked about it, and they decided this was the only answer. It was tough, but they decided this was the only way to go.”
However, Kim isn’t giving up completely on Reggie. “Kim believes they can work it out,” a friend of Kim’s tells Life & Style. “She knows she’s been selfish and hasn’t put enough time into the relationship because she’s so focused on her career. She feels terrible about it — but she hopes more than anything this time will be spent working on the issues that came between them.”
