In a highly emotional revelation, Kim Kardashian has opened up about how she dealt with her former husband Kanye West’s relentless social media outbursts, including his claim that she had an affair with rapper Drake.
During the season 3 premiere of The Kardashians, the reality star expressed her struggles handling the situation. In addition, she shed light on the toll it took on her mental and emotional well-being.
Kim, 42, confided in her mother, Kris Jenner, disclosing her anxiety attacks and near tears. Kanye’s actions made headlines. Despite the intensity, Kim and her family remained silent and did not engage with Kanye’s wild narratives and accusations.
Kanye, 45, absurdly suggested that Kris, 67, leaked Kim’s infamous sex tape in 2007. Kim expressed frustration at the unfounded claims. However, they opted not to respond, exhibiting immense restraint in the face of falsehoods.
The couple, who share four children – North (9), Saint (7), Chicago (5), and Psalm (4) – officially split in 2021. Their divorce was finalized in 2022. Throughout the separation period, Kanye frequently resorted to Instagram to criticize Kim’s co-parenting skills, her relationship with Pete Davidson, and even Kris’ management of the Kardashian family.
Kim Kardashian revealed that she has become accustomed to assuming any text she sends to Kanye may end up online. This highlights the difficulties she faces in maintaining privacy and trust. She expressed confidence in her ability to handle the situation but deep sadness for her mother enduring constant attacks.
Kris reminded Kim that she could not control Kanye’s actions. He was ultimately responsible for the repercussions he faced. Kim acknowledged this but also highlighted the emotional toll it takes on her. Kanye publicly disparages her and spreads rumours, such as alleging an affair with Drake throughout their marriage.
Kim questioned Kanye’s claim of being her “forever protector” while publicly accusing her of infidelity. She expressed her inability to comprehend how he sees himself as a guardian while engaging in hurtful behaviour towards her. The rumours involving Drake and Kim first surfaced in 2018, initiated by Kanye himself. However, Kim has consistently denied any romantic involvement with the rapper.
Furthermore, Kim revealed that Kanye West often seeks her approval regarding what she says about him on The Kardashians. She highlighted the double standard, explaining how he freely mentions her in songs, interviews and social media posts without seeking her permission. Despite this, Kim emphasized that she refrains from speaking negatively about him and even feels guilty expressing exhaustion.
Overwhelmed and on the brink of breaking down, Kim expressed her desire for everyone to have their acts together so that she could have a moment to lose control. She yearned for a bad day, the freedom to be overwhelmed, but the ongoing chaos surrounding her prevented it. So instead, Kim Kardashian reflected on the lasting impact of the situation, feeling trapped in a never-ending narrative affecting her life indefinitely.
