Kim Kardashian West learned to value privacy through Kanye West

Kim Kardashian West learned the value of "privacy" through her marriage to Kanye West.

The 37-year-old reality star tied the knot with the rapper - with whom she has North, five, Saint, two, and Chicago, eight months - in 2014, and has said that before she met Kanye, her whole life revolved around being in the spotlight.

She said: "We would get our hair and makeup done after we filmed the show. Then it was like, 'I was like what is the hottest restaurant in Hollywood? Where can I go? Where can I be seen? Who is there? What are they doing? Who is there?'"

But when she met the 'Heartless' rapper, the 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star says her perspective changed and he taught her how to value her private life, as he likes to keep to himself when he isn't working.

Speaking to Alec Baldwin on his 'The Alec Baldwin Show', Kim said: "It started with Kanye. His work life is very public, but then when he was off, he was very private. I was - everything had to be public for me back then.

"Now it's, where can I go on vacation where nobody will see us? All I want is privacy. I never thought that I would be at that point."

Despite their close bond, it was recently claimed Kim doesn't always agree with her outspoken spouse, but will only challenge his opinions behind closed doors.

A source said: "She lets him take the lead, and she never disagrees with him publicly.

"She has decided that's the right move, but she isn't scared to share her disagreements with him behind closed doors.

"Don't think that she's afraid of him, because she's not. She's just managing him the best she can."
