Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner

Why did Kim Kardashian fly to Minnesota to see Kris Humphries over the weekend?

"She really needed to talk to him," her mother Kris Jenner tells Extra. "She's just trying to figure it out. ... She's trying to do the right thing, follow her heart."

Jenner says he doesn't know if her daughter, who filed for divorce last week after 72 days of marriage, was looking to reconcile with Humphries. During the trip, the estranged couple met with the pastor who officiated their lavish August wedding. "They [need to] show their emotions," Jenner says. "She needs to do what she's doing now and cry and figure it out."

She admits the divorce filing caught her by surprise. "I wish that I would have been able to help her along with that, but I wasn't, but at this point I can only let her know that she is loved beyond belief and whatever she decides is OK," Jenner says.

Jenner adds that Kardashian will likely speak out about the situation once the "dust settles."

"Whatever decisions Kim is making right now, she's a very smart girl and she's gonna do the right thing," she says.
