Kim Kardashian breaks down in tears as she shares struggles in life as a single mum

Kim Kardashian has opened up about her struggles raising her children as a single parent since her divorce from Kanye West.

Proving money can't buy happiness - although, it can certainly buy a nanny, some peace and quiet and expensive beauty products and makeup to cover your under-eye bags - Kim Kardashian has revealed how much she's struggling raising her four children on her own.

Alas, social media users haven't taken too kindly to her tales of woe.

On an episode of The Kardashians, the mom-of-four opened up about a particularly 'hard' week with her children.

"Obviously there's just times in life when things get really hectic and I think you just have to tune it all out and realise that being a mom and being really present is the most important thing," she noted.

However, Kim still feels like she's 'in the trenches' - the 42-year-old 'the one doing all the daily stuff all the time' following her divorce from Kanye - now formally known as Ye.

But what's made Kim feel like she's in the 'trenches'?

The reality TV star turned business woman explains: "I do the morning routine, I do the night routine, it's like a pit stop with race cars.

"It's like 'Brush your teeth. Brush your teeth. Brush your teeth. Brush your teeth. Do your hair. Do your hair. Do your hair. Do your hair.' It's like a four in a row, changing tires really quickly."

Unfortunately, while some people will certainly relate to the experiences Kim is going through as a mother, not many can say they relate to her circumstances as a member of the Kardashian family.

Flooding to Twitter, many have been quick to condemn Kim for her comments.

One user said: "In the trenches. Yeah sure. Single motherhood as a Kardashian is essentially the same as the regular kind. You know, working two jobs to pay for daycare while getting subsidised housing and food stamps. The struggle is real for Kim Kardashian."

"Does she ever shut up. No one feels sorry for you," another wrote.

A third commented: "Multimillionaire Kardashian: 'I'm in the trenches.' The rest of the world: 'For the love of God, shut the f**k up'."

Kim has previously spoken out about other things she's struggled with since her divorce with Kanye was finalised, such as not talking to her children about the lead up to the divorce in order to protect them.

On another episode of The Kardashians, she said: "But like God, if people knew... I just would never do that to my kids. It just is really crazy.

"[...] I am the one being accused for so many things and blamed for so many things and it’s really really hurtful and it sucks, but I can control how I react and if I’m a mess, my kids will see that. [Hopefully one day they] will appreciate my silence, my understanding and my grace."
