Momager Kris Jenner went on the TODAY show Tuesday in defense of her daughter Kim Kardashian’s decision to file for divorce. 

“I knew a few days before, of course, because Kim and I are really close,” Kris told TODAY anchor Ann Curry of hearing of the breakup. “It’s just our job now to wrap our arms around her through thick and thin.”

Kris also addressed the negative tabloid reports about Kim, saying: 

“[The marriage] certainly wasn’t a sham, certainly wasn’t for TV. We have enough going on on our show that we don’t have to make things up. She felt that she was in love with him. It was an amazing time … I had no idea there was a problem at the time. It saddens all of us.”

Kim is currently in Sydney, Australia with her sister Khloe Kardashian promoting their Kardashian Kollection. Kris said of her 31-year-old daughter’s disposition, “She feels that she’s let a lot of people down. She’s sick about it.”
