Kim Kardashian shared during the Monday episode of “Angie Martinez IRL”podcast what it’s like to co-parent with her ex, Kanye West.
The 42-year-old reality star claimed, “Co-parenting is hard,” adding, “It’s really f—king hard,” she added. She and the Yeezy founder share North, 9, Saint, 7, Chicago, 4, and Psalm, 3.
According to The Kardashians star, she’s been shielding her children from Ye’s controversial behavior, especially the anti-Semitic posts he shared this year. She explained, “I had the best dad, and I had the best memories and the greatest experience and that’s all I want for my kids as long as they can have that.”
“That’s what I would want for them,” Kim continued. “If they don’t know the things that are being said or what’s happening in the world, why would I ever bring that energy to them? That’s really heavy grown-up s–t that they’re not ready to deal with.”
Meanwhile, the SKIMS founder assured she’ll be “so prepared” to answer their kids’ questions about their father’s public misbehavior when they finally ask her. However, she clarified they won’t hear anything bad about the rapper from her,
She shared, “One day my kids will thank me for sitting here and not bashing their dad when I could. All the crazy s–t. They’ll thank me and I’ll privately answer anything that they want to know. It’s not my place anymore to jump in.”
However, she admitted that it was difficult to keep quiet following her ex-husband’s controversies. She said, “I definitely protected him and I still will in the eyes of my kids for my kids. In my home, my kids don’t know anything that goes on on the outside world … I’m holding on by a thread.”
“I know I’m so close to that not happening. While that’s still happening, I will protect that to the ends of the earth as long as I can.”
Kim filed for divorce from West in February 2021 and in March 2022, she became legally single. The former couple was able to finalize their divorce on November 29. They agreed to joint custody of their four children with Kanye paying $200,000 a month in child support.
