The reality star and rapper finalized their divorce in 2022.
Kim Kardashian takes deliberate measures to shield her children from news concerning their father, Kanye West.
The mother of four, who shares North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm West with her ex-husband, revealed on an episode of The Kardashians that she ensures her household remains unaffected by such stories. Kim explained that she avoids traditional television and instead opts for Apple TV to prevent her children from stumbling upon mentions of their father. She emphasized the need to protect her children and confessed that they haven’t seen anything related to their father, but she often enters crisis mode to maintain this safeguard.
Kim filed for divorce from Kanye in 2021, ending their nearly seven-year marriage. In a court filing, she expressed her strong desire for privacy but claimed that Kanye had not respected her request, sharing misinformation about their private family matters and co-parenting on social media, causing emotional distress. The divorce was finalized in November of the same year, according to reports.
During the recent episode of The Kardashians, which aired on June 1, Kim recalled her past behavior when Kanye made negative headlines. She would secretly reach out to people, assuring them that everything would be okay and asking them to give him another chance. Kim admitted that she used to spend a significant amount of time playing the role of a “clean-up crew” during her marriage.
Kris Jenner, Kim’s mother, offered her perspective, asserting that Kim’s selfless efforts were unsustainable and contributed to their eventual divorce. Kim reflected on the challenging experience of witnessing someone she loved and built a family with transform into someone entirely different from the person she knew.
