“I protected this for so long, but said I would never let this happen to you again.”
If you’ve followed Kimye over the years, you’ll know that at times throughout their seven-year marriage, Kanye West has publicly aired his grievances toward his now ex-wife, Kim Kardashian.
Prior to filing for divorce in February 2021, Kim found herself called out sporadically by Kanye, who has bipolar disorder. Perhaps the most notable example was during a series of tweets in 2020 where he claimed she tried to force him into a mental health facility against his will.
He also publicly revealed some of his and Kim’s personal and private information on stage at a political rally, when he claimed they planned to have an abortion when the mogul was pregnant with their first child.
But in addition to speaking out against Kim, Kanye also appeared to clash with his family, namely his mother, Kris Jenner. He called the mother-daughter duo “white supremacists” and infamously called the matriarch “Kris Jong-Un,” before sharing a screenshot of his texts with Kris, in which he asked her if she wanted to ” go to war” when she had not I did not answer her.
At the time, Kim unreservedly defended Kanye, releasing a statement in July 2020 speaking publicly about his bipolar disorder for the first time in a bid to help break down “stigma and misconceptions” about mental health.
A few years prior, she defended the rapper when he posted a series of tweets about his love of President Donald Trump. He later visited Trump at the White House as he embarked on his own presidential run, which he later admitted to “embarrassing” Kim.
Now that Kim has split from Kanye — and struck up a new relationship with Pete Davidson — it looks like she’s reflecting on the tumultuous past marriage as candidly as ever.
In the latest episode of the Hulu reality series The Kardashianswhich aired Wednesday night, Kim sat down with her family to talk about how Kanye has treated them over the years.
In the episode, we see Kim hosting a small dinner party at her home to reunite with her loved ones, including Khloé, Kendall, Kourtney and her then-fiancé, Travis Barker, and Kris and her boyfriend, Corey Gamble.
Kris tells Kim that she received a text from her “friend” notifying her of a new Kanye song being released, raising concerns given that at the time the episode was filmed, the rapper had begun to publicly denounce his and Kim’s divorce.
He continued to refer to the mogul as his “wife” during an appearance on the Beverage Champions podcast and claimed he had “never even seen” the legal papers, while expressing annoyance at her for joking about the split during her Saturday Night Live monologue in October.
Looking uncomfortable, Kim says she also got the message, before reading it aloud to the group: “Kanye is releasing a new rap song.” She goes on to speculate, “That means he’s talking crazy bullshit about me and probably just saying whatever.”
Stepping up to defend her sister, Khloé told Kim, “Most men don’t publicly disparage the mother of their children. We don’t have to sit here and throw stones, we take it on the chin.
“You’re the mother of his kids,” Kris notes, adding that Kim has “done nothing but be great” with Kanye. She develops further in a confessional: “When people say derogatory things about one of us, it hurts us all. Because one day your children will read everything and see everything. And that’s something that everyone really needs to be aware of.
Meanwhile, Khloé tells Kim, “The truth always prevails.” Kendall agrees, adding, “Karma will always be on your side.”
Remaining calm, however, Kim reassures her mother and sisters that she will “never stoop” to Kanye’s level. “I think I will never stop being myself,” she says. “All I can do is control how I react to something.”
And Kim goes on to address Kanye’s past treatment of not only her, but her family members as well.
“I can’t control how he treats me, or how he’s always treated you,” she says. “I protected this for so long, but said I would never let this happen to you again.”
Commenting in more detail on Kanye’s past arguments with his family in a confessional, Kim admits, “I recognize the impact my relationship has had on my family, and that I’ve never had the opportunity to just say, ‘ I’m sorry guys.'”
Kim goes on to tell her family, “For once in my life, I feel strong. I won’t let anyone treat you one way or myself.
As we now know, Kanye ended up releasing a song in mid-January called “Eazy,” which features a scathing reference to Kim’s boyfriend, Pete. “God saved me from this crash / Just so I could beat Pete Davidson’s ass,” Ye raps.
Shortly after the track’s release, Kanye spent months sharing Instagram posts slamming both Kim and Pete, throughout which the mogul remained largely silent.
He shared a bunch of videos accusing Kim of deliberately excluding him from their daughter’s Chicago fourth birthday party, saying he “wasn’t allowed” to know where the place was.
He later demanded an apology from “the whole family,” tagging all the Kardashian-Jenners in a hastily deleted Instagram post that asked them to “take responsibility” and stop trying to “bully him. “.
And after Kanye also accused Kim of trying to ‘antagonize’ him by letting their daughter North wear makeup on TikTok, the beauty mogul ended up posting a statement on her Instagram story calling out her for her ‘constant attacks’ .
“Kanye’s constant attacks on me in interviews and on social media are actually more hurtful than any TikTok North could create,” Kim wrote.
“I wanted nothing more than a healthy and supportive co-parenting relationship,” she added. “It saddens me that Kanye continues to make this impossible every step of the way.”
