Kim Kardashian Believes Kanye’s Antics Will Hurt Their Kids More Than Her Sex Tape
Kim Kardashian has made rare comments about her ex-husband Kanye West’s antics. The Skims founder addressed him on the season three premiere of Hulu’s The Kardashians. The shapewear mogul reflected on her divorce from the rapper as well as his controversies in relation to her 2007 sex tape with ex-boyfriend Ray J.
“Even just how he looks so down on me for my tape and brings it up all over town, all over the media — thanks for reminding people once again,” Kim K said. “All of his shenanigans — I don’t even know what the f— to call it — is going to be far more damaging to the kids one day than my tape will ever be.
“And I have to sit here and not say anything ever because I know one day my kids will appreciate that and I know that, like, is the best thing for that.”
Since their divorce, Kim has been open about how challenging raising their four children: North, 9, Saint, 7, Chicago, 5, and Psalm, 4.
“Co-parenting is really f—ing hard,” Kardashian said in an interview per PEOPLE back in December.

“If they don’t know things that are being said, why would I ever bring that energy to them? That is real, heavy, grownup s— that they are not ready to deal with,” she said. “When they are, we will have those conversations. One day, my kids will thank me for not sitting here and bashing their dad. I could,” she added.
“I definitely protected him,” she continued. “I still will in the eyes of my kids. For my kids. So, in my home, my kids don’t know anything that goes on [in] the outside world,” Kardashian shared, expressing that she misses just being able to go to basic places like CVS.
“I am holding on by a thread. I know that I am so close to that not happening,” the SKIMS founder continued of the kids’ inevitable access to public information about their parents, “but while it is still that way, I will protect that to the end of the Earth as long as I can.”
The pair got married in Florence, Italy in 2014. Kim filed for divorce from Kanye in February 2021. Kanye has since been in relationships with Irina Shayk, Julia Fox and Chaney Jones. He is now married to Yeezy architectural designer Bianca Censori. Kim was in a nine-month relationship with comedian and actor Pete Davidson. The two split in August 2022.
