The past week has been a roller coaster of emotions
for Kim Kardashian
as she deals with her divorce from
Kris Humphries, according to her mother, Kris Jenner
"She needs to do what she's doing now and cry and figure it out," Jenner, 56, tells Extra
. "She's just trying to follow her heart, and she's going to be okay."
Kardashian, 31, will eventually open up about what led to her decision to file for divorce, her mother added.
The reality star flew to Minnesota
on Sunday for a whirlwind trip to see Humphries, 26, because "she really needed to talk to him," Jenner says.
Though she was in Minnesota for less than 24 hours, Kim and Kris
also allegedly met with the pastor who performed their wedding ceremony to discuss what went wrong
in the 72-day marriage.
