Kim Kardashian has landed herself in hot water for opening up about life as a single mom of four.
The reality TV star recently spoke with the On Purpose With Jay Shetty podcast, where she admitted that raising her kids was 'really f**king hard' and that sometimes she 'cries herself to sleep'.
The mother, who shares her four children with ex-husband Kayne West, said: "I would say parenting is the thing that has taught me the most about myself.
"It has been the most challenging thing.
"There are nights I cry myself to sleep. Like, what just happened? With all the moods and the personalities.
"There's nothing that can prepare you… but you will figure it out."
She added that juggling so many kids with different needs could escalate into absolute 'madness', especially while getting them all ready for school in the morning.
"It's like I always have to do one of my daughter's hair — and it has to be perfect and it has to be a certain way — and then this one needs me to put his shoes on and they all need you. ... It's like full crazy madness, cooking, running around. Like, it's wild," she disclosed.
While the SKIMS founder was trying to give an honest account of juggling motherhood with a buzzing career, many pointed out that she's more privileged than most parents.
One person wrote to Twitter: "Absolutely f**king no one feels bad for you Kim Kardashian. Millions of dollars n four nannies lmao please."
Another said: "What is this narrative exactly? First, Kylie and the unrealistic beauty standards that THEY themselves set and now we are supposed to believe that Kim is single, momming it out here as if she doesn't have 12 nannies, four cooks, two au pairs, seven housemaids et al."
A third commented: "Yeah, must be tough doing the nannies rota every week. Challenging is when it's a single mum with kids trying to cover the bills and put food on the table."
While another said: "Hi @KimKardashian, I saw that you cry yourself to sleep over the hardships of being a single mom. Poor single mom here. Can you point me to the advocacies you have created to help other single moms much less fortunate than you? I’ll wait."
It's unclear whether Kim has nannies helping her with her family, however a report from The Sun disclosed she has 'multiple'.
