The reality star opened up about her relationship with the rapper in an interview with Oprah Winfrey, revealing that she can really relate to West.
"It's very comforting to have someone that knows everything about you, that respects you, understands, has gone through the similar things," Kardashian told Winfrey.
"I can really relate to his mother passing," she continued. "He can really relate to my father passing. I mean, there's so many similarities in our life that... I feel like I'm at a really happy, good space."
The first part of the interview, which features the entire Kardashian clan, aired on June 17, while the second part airs on June 24 at at 8pm EST on OWN.
Kardashian is currently in the process of divorcing Kris Humphries, who she maintains is still a good person in spite of their differences.
