Kim Kardashian has opened up about her co-parenting struggles with ex-husband Kanye West in an emotional interview, admitting that it’s been ‘f*****g hard’ bringing up their four children together since their divorce.
The Kardashians star ended her marriage with the Grammy-winning rapper in February 2021 after seven years, and their divorce was recently finalised.
They share four children; North, nine, Saint, seven, Chicago, four, and Psalm, three.
In recent weeks, Kanye, 45, has been embroiled in controversy after making a series of antisemitic comments, denouncing Black Lives Matter and praising Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler, while also losing his lucrative Adidas partnership.
Kim, 42, has sat down for an in-depth interview with Angie Martinez on her IRL Podcast to discuss what it has been like co-parenting with Kanye and trying to shield their children from the drama.
‘I definitely protected him and I still will. In the eyes of my kids – for my kids,’ Kim explained.
‘So in my home, my kids don’t anything that goes on in the outside world and I’ve managed to- I’m holding on by a thread and I know I’m so close to that not happening, but while it’s still that way, I will protect that to the end of the Earth as long as I can.’
She then stated to Angie’s shock: ‘My kids, they don’t know anything,’ adding that her ‘best friends’ are teachers at her children’s school so she’s aware of conversations her kids are having during breaks.
‘None of the [other] kids have ever said anything to my kids,’ she revealed. ‘When stuff’s going down I protect stuff as far as the TVs and the content that’s on.
‘It is [a fulltime job].’
However, she admitted: ‘[It’s] worth it because of course I want to disassociate in specific thoughts and things being said because that’s not me, but at the same time in my home, I could be going through something but if we’re riding to school and they want to listen to their dad’s music, no matter what is going on in the world, I have to have that smile on my face and blast his music and singalong and act like nothing’s wrong.
‘As soon as I drop them off I can have a good cry.’
At this point, Kim became emotional and broke down in tears while saying: ‘I had the best dad – I don’t want to get emotional, it’s just been a day for me.
‘It’s hard. Co-parenting is really f*****g hard.’
She added: ‘I had the best dad and 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.
‘Why would I bring that energy to them? That’s real heavy grown-up s**t that they’re not ready to deal with.’
